Summary: I upgraded from the Definitive Technology 1000 ($1999.95) because this one sounds better and is also the shortest, sleekest center channel we could find. It fits perfectly under the TV on our mantle, at only 4 inches tall and about 4 inches deep. All others we looked at ended up blocking a couple inches of the screen.
Summary: Just what I needed. If you're balancing what you want vs what you need, you expect to make sacrifices. Well, it was hard to find the right size center channel & I was open to paying a premium for the fit rather than give up the form of my room. Luckily, I found this speaker. Sounds amazing, nice low profile, not an overwhelming price.
Summary: Like all Definitive speakers I've used the Mythos 7 is an excellent center speaker. It it compact, the main reason I bought it, but the audio sounds like a large speaker. I highly recommend the Mythos 7.
Summary: I am using 1 x Mythos 7 (center) in a 5.1 set-up with ,2 x Mythos XTR-40s (main), the Supercube 2000 (subwoofer) and 2 x UIW64/A Round In-Ceiling Speakers. I am delighted with the performance. I have had surround sound systems since the early 1970s (Quadraphonic) and this set up is easily the best. The listening area is ~10' x 15' and these small speakers are more than adequate. The Mythos 7 does what a center is meant to do very well.
Summary: I purchased this to be the main center channel speaker in a mid-priced system in my family room. It can distort at louder volumes, but is fine for "normal" TV levels. Given its small size, this is an accomplishment. I think it would take a considerably larger speaker to play at movie levels.
Pros: Small, I don't have room for a deeper speaker. Good looking.
Cons: I wish I could drive it harder without distortion.
Summary: I bought 2 Mythos Six and a Seven along w/ a ProSub 800 for center, side & sub speakers for a new Samsung plasma and although they're still new to me, I really like the sound of the outer speakers. The Sub is a little bit "all there or not" but the Mythos' are all great...look and sound terrific.
