Love this Sound Bar

The SU, Amazon
3 August 2015
  • Summary: When I moved, I left a beautiful KEF surround sound speaker system. New house had open plan family room so I could get surround sound 5.1 or 7.1 speaker system. Had to resort to a sound bar. I had my doubts. No longer. The Mythos SSA-50 is excellent for sound quality, and style.

Great

Drew M., Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this to replace a Polk audio surround bar 50, the difference is an understatement yes it costs more but after 6 months I find the purchase not only worth it but substantially so. Note, this is in a very large master bedroom.

Excellent Sound and easy setup... if you can ignore the mounting bracket!

Hernan Epelman "aureliano buendia", Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent sound, for both movies and music, without the complication of multiple speakers all around the room. The sound quality for music is so good that we've been watching lots of concerts on YouTube. Really wonderful. In movies and TV dialog is crisp and sound is very good.

Is there a soundbar better?

Effero, Crutchfield
22 December 2014
  • Summary: This soundbar is used in my smaller media room and it is everything I wanted and more. Sound is detailed and I am surprised that the surround sound is as true as it is. It is driven by my older Rotel RSX-1057 along with a Definitive Technology SuperCube 4000.
  • Pros: Great detailed sound! Same Def Tech sound I love grown to love through the years.
  • Cons: Nothing. I does everything I want it to.

Please watch out about the installation

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 December 2014
  • Summary: First off, the sound is great (+5 stars). This only partially made up for the incredible hassle of setting the soundbar up (-3 stars). A mounting bracket must be used whether you mount or stand the speaker The process of installing the mounting bracket onto the speaker is (in concept) pretty easy:...

Nice single speaker bar for almost all genre of music.

John Clu, Amazon
20 August 2014
  • Summary: The sound is good but not great like 5 separate speakers spread around the room. There is no bass hence a woofer is necessary to get the fuller experience. But, the important thing is my wife loves the fact that it is one unit and can be "hidden".

Almost great..

AVgrayb12, Amazon
15 February 2014
  • Summary: Definitive is a highly regarded manufacturer of speakers, including the SSA-50. Build and audio quality are exceptional. However, this product loses a star due to the incredible stupid design of the speaker mounting bracket which must be used for table and wall mount.

Awesome, with the right receiver

Shane O. Laake "camera nerd", Amazon
9 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a speaker that can act as five, but like most speakers, it'll need an amplifier or receiver. The good news is that most modern 5.1 receivers will not only power this speaker, but also bring all of the niceties that a full blown AVR offer, such as a plethora of HDMI inputs, room correction,...

Definitive Technology Mythos SSA-50

Bret, Crutchfield
12 August 2013
  • Summary: First unit arrived damaged. Crutchfield replaced immediately. Packaging is marginal. Looks beautiful great match for plasma displays, heavy solid feeling, Sound is OK average. No real surround just a nice clear single speaker.
  • Pros: Crutchfield's legendary support & response, Great looks, Solid Construction.
  • Cons: Inadequate packaging, Average sound for price.
