These are Gems

Summary: I will start off by saying that I currently own Definitive Technology speakers so I may be biased. I bought a pair of these to replace some older Def Tech surrounds. These play loud and appear to be able to handle just about anything you can throw at them. Are they pricey?
Summary: I got these after five years of requests to downsize my Polk RTi A6s from the wife; they sounded amazing but were just too massive. I tried the Klipsch G-42 passive soundbar first but was dismayed at how pathetic it sounded compared to my beloved Polks.
Summary: The Definitive Tech guys were wonderful. I know little about audio so I called them and they helped me select the speakers that best fit my needs. I use them in my Home Theater (no music), and they provide a great sound with movies.
Summary: Phenominal sound. I am not impressed with the other DT offerings, but interestingly, these are the best sounding surrounds I have ever heard - better than B&W and others much more expensive. I recommend getting 3 voice-matched front speakers for your HT, then these for the surrounds.
Great looking and sounding speakers...worth the price

Summary: I looked for many satelite speakers before deciding on these. The Mythos series have great reviews from hi-fi magazines and the sound has not disappointed me. I'm not an audiophile but I do notice the difference between low and high quality speakers.
Summary: I purchased two Mythos Gem XLs as the surrounds for a speaker setup that has 3 Mythos Tens as front left/right/center and a SuperCube I for subwoofer. You can read my review of the Mythos Tens for a full account of the system. Voice-match to the main speakers is very good.
Summary: Mycket fin surround-/bakhögtalare med god spridning. Spelar högt och rent, i vanlig ordning för DT. Snygga och bra stativ finns också, som dock tyvärr inte verkar finnas i Sverige - men de går enkelt att köpa från USA, t ex via Amazon.
