If this is legit, they look like a warez site from 15 years ago.

Hard to say whether that's legit or not but I'm amused at the Miroslav pages where they proudly boast that the refills are "Made for Reason 3".

The Miroslav refills are a good way to get decent orchestral samples on the cheap. They're a bit dated, of course, but they're still viable, especially if you're not interested in going down the Kontakt path.

As for the other refills, I bought most of them many many years ago during some crazy mega-sale, and I gotta say, they are some of the worst sample libraries I've encountered. The instruments sound dull and uninspiring with no character, and with no articulation variations. I suppose if you need a few simple sounds, they might do the job, but there are better choices out there for sampled instruments - in the VST world.

Already owning a few SR refills, I have to say to look at them these days, the skin designs are awfully dated.

As for that site, the domain has been registered since 2000. The owner is 'Savvy Investments LLC', a company operating in Mumbai, India. And a site snapshot from the wayback machine shows that they have been selling Sonic Reality products for 18 years

Yeah the Esoundz site is definitely legal its not selling Warez or anything like that. It's just that the site was never updated so it looks like a site from the early days of the internet. Sonic Reality are legit too, they worked on the factory library for both Reason and IK Sampletank.

Miroslav is a nice option for strings because its in the NNXT format and you have a bit more editing flexibility. A lot of the Kontakt string libraries lock up the samples so you can't edit them much.
