I believe that they said that the new product would work in conjunction with V3 speakers...

That was quite some time ago, when it appeared that it would possibly be a separate electronic component. It now appears that it's specifically a new speaker designed by Ian and Andrew with the new technology embedded in it. It may or may not be feasible to apply it as an add-on to earlier models.

I agree. Note that they may own the patents to Mirage's designs, but there are many other omni type speakers out there too. Maybe Andrew can still design something as such, without infringing on the Mirage patents. A shame if he couldn't considering how much work he did on the OMD 15/28 ect.

I hope it is a Large 3 way speaker with a 8-12" woofer... However, i don't think that is the case...

The Omniguide would be a big one and I believe they would own the intellectual property to the term "Omnipolar". Mirage basically wrote the book on omni directional speakers. But like you said there are other omni directional speakers out there.
