Summary: I have a small space and wanted to avoid wires with my usual home theatre set up.i spoke with the rep at Crutchfield and he recommended this for amazing sound and convenience. The surround sound , even with the additional subwoofer I bought, not realistic at all. The bar is VERY heavy and hard to hang. I'm really dissappointed with the quality for the expense.
Pros: Not really any
Cons: Poor surround sound quality even in a small room; bar very heavy and anchors for wall not included.
Highly recommended, ideal replacement for discrete speakers.

Summary: If you're like me and already have an AVR but moved to a new home where running wires to 5 speakers isn't practical, this is the speaker for you. It's about the same width as my 42" LCD TV and looks great sitting in front of it. It's low-profile enough that it doesn't block the TV's IR sensor.
Summary: Prompt shipping and arrived in perfect condition. One screw began to strip as the back was installed; use a large Phillips. Absolutely excellent sound from the system. Perfect clarity of movie dialogue and full- room music and sound effects. Recommend a sub-woofer for the best experience. And take care with the volume. This can blow you away. If you like it loud- no distortion.
Summary: Bought this soundbar in December 2010. Pared this with a Def Tech Pro Sub 1000 for outstanding performance with my Pioneer Elite TV. Movie effects really come alive with this soundbar and gives a new dimension to my Blu-Ray movies that I have never experienced before, especially compared to TV speakers. Amazing sound - room is 14X19.
Summary: After having buying my first flat screen TV, I needed a speaker system. A friend told me about the Definitive Technology speaker bar and using soundbars for surround audio rather than satellite speakers. I began my ebay bidding, and my friend was spot on about this SSA product. This wall mounted speaker bar above (or below)the TV gives an incredible AV look to my living room decor. A very clean setup without having speakers on the ground or on stands.
Summary: I purchased the Mythos SSA-42 soundbar a couple of weeks ago and I'm glad I did. The setup was easy and the sound is great. This product produces great sound while listening to music and watching movies. I paired the soundbar with the Defenitive SuperCube III subwoofer and the two work well together. If you have a small to medium size room I highly recommend this product.
