Love this Sound Bar

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.
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!

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.
Summary: Great 5.1 surround sound for a sound bar. A good subwoofer is a must. Overall, probably not as good as having individual speakers but better than I expected. Set up was easy although the mounting bracket can be a challenge. Suggest connecting the wires first and then the bracket.
Pros: Good sound quality, Great looks, Easy setup
Cons: Mounting bracket wire hole should be bigger.
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:...
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.
Nice single speaker bar for almost all genre of music.

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".
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.
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,...
