Not surround sound, just awesome sound
7 March 2013
Summary: A sound bar is a sound bar, not a 5.1 system placed in the correct locations. moving past that fact, this sound bar is EXCELLENT for music, movies, and regular TV. we watch a lot of sitcoms in the evenings and the issue many times with a 5.1 or 7.1 system is getting the dialog loud and clear.
Summary: I recently moved into a new home. The family room did not support my existing 5.1 speaker configuration. It was going to cost thousands of dollars to have in-wall speakers installed. Rather that do that, I decided to take a chance on a sound bar.
Pros: Sleek design. True audio receiver support (front, surround, and center channel speaker support). Sound quality. Sound imaging and effects.
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: I bought this soundbar to go with a Definitive Technology Supercube II subwoofer. And I am blown away by the combo. I did not have the space for a full surround set-up in the room these went in and am not disappointed.
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.
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...
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.
Summary: I have tried several sound bars including products by Polk, Yamaha (Sound Projector), and ZVOX. The Definitive Technology Mythos SSA-42 is the best-sounding sound bar by far. It creates a pleasant spatial sound field; very clean and accurate. Dialog is clear (even at low volume levels).
