Summary: I thought I would never get rid of my old huge speaker boxes. My SO wanted them gone and I agreed that they took up too much space. So I did my homework and found these gems. I thought I would really need the four inch model but I didn't. These are fine. They did need a sub-woofer (also reviewed with 5 stars) but I would have been surprised if they didn't. They are 3 inch speakers.
Summary: I have six Definite Technology high end speakers in surround. They are fantastic. Unfortunately, they were too fantastic for my mid-price receiver and I ended up buying a Maranz SR8002 to drive them appropriately (60% off at Amazon). I now lose track of the picture because I get lost in the sound. I have an Apple TV which allows me to play my 52 GB of music through the same speakers, ranging from opera to Son House. All sound fantastic.
Summary: My system consists of Mythos 4's for the Front speakers, Mythos 5's for the rear surrounds, a Mythos 3 for the center channel and a Super Cube II for the sub. I drive these with a Denon 2310ci and my video is a Pioneer Elite KURO signature series 60" monitor 141FD. My AV room is around 14' x 20. The sound from this system is really nice. Clean and uncolored, very natural best describes it. The system also has a great Wife Acceptance Factor.
Summary: I also recently purchased these to replace Klipsch F1 floor standing speakers. I purchased a new flat screen LCD to replace a rear projection LCD and needed new slimmer front speakers to compliment the thinner wall mounted LCD. These speakers were a huge improvement over the Klipsch F1's. The speakers are sharper, higher end crisp notes and clear sounding at all volume levels. They do lack a little with the bass, but if you have a sub woofer this is not noticeable.
