Mirage Prestige 5

Mirage launched the Prestige 5 system at the 2007 CEDIA conference.  Each magnetically-shielded Prestige satellite features a multi-layered, hand-crafted medium density fiberboard cabinet, and employs a 2.75-inch titanium deposit polypropylene woofer and 0.75-inch Pure Titanium Hybrid™ tweeter mounted in Mirage's patented OMNIGUIDE dispersion system. The OMNIGUIDE module is hidden under a black cloth-covered grille, creating a classy look that easily integrates the satellites into any home décor. Equipped with high-quality five-way binding posts, these speakers permit the use of banana plugs, spades or a bare wire connection. Furthermore, these speakers can be wall mounted using the included brackets, placed on a table, tucked away on a shelf, or affixed to optional MS-STB stands for endless placement flexibility.

The magnetically-shielded center channel is a two-way design that utilizes proprietary OMNIGUIDE technology with a 0.75-inch Pure Titanium Hybrid tweeter and 3-inch polypropylene woofer. Constructed of high-quality extruded aluminum, the center channel features premium five-way mounting terminals on the back of its cabinet for improved speaker connectivity. It comes equipped with simple tabletop mount as well as a unique bracket for flush mounting to a wall.

For increased low-frequency response, Mirage recommends pairing the system up with its Prestige S10 or S8 subwoofers that are sold separately.

A bass-reflex design with dual rear-firing ports, the Prestige S10 features a powerful 10-inch front-firing fiberglass composite driver with patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround™. This proprietary design eliminates any surround dimpling, enabling the subwoofer to play lower with greater output and fidelity. A high-performance BASH® amplifier allows this hard-hitter to deliver 300 watts of continuous power and 1,200 watts of dynamic peak power.

A bass-reflex design with a single rear-firing port, the smaller Prestige S8 offers the same driver technology as the S10, but instead utilizes an 8-inch woofer and generates 200 watts of continuous power and 800 watts of dynamic peak power.

Available in a high-gloss black piano lacquer finish, the Prestige 5 bundle, priced at a U.S. MSRP of $899, will be available for purchase through the specialty retail market this summer, while the optional Prestige subwoofers—which feature the same finish—will launch later in the fall.

Over the years J. has constantly found himself to be an "early-adopter," spending way too much money on "new" technologies such as Compact Disc, LaserDisc, and DVD. He is one of the few people who actually purchased (and still owns) a CORE programmable remote control (bonus points if you remember this product).
