Summary: A few years ago I began my journey into the world of high-end sound. After a *ton* of research I decided to begin my journey with Definitive Technology. I began with their Mythos product line to build out a 5.1 system.
Summary: If you are reading these, you probably already know how fantastic these speakers are. I'd like to comment on the customer service. In short, the post-sale service is just as fantastic. I had the base of these speaker damaged due to moving.
Summary: I have owned many different speaker systems over the years. None of them even come close to the performance of the Mythos STS. I did have to fidget around with placement a bit, but once you hit the right positioning, the sound rewards are amazing.
Summary: I was a little nervous they would be too large, but overall size wise they aren't too obtrusive. The fact is though even if they were the absolute phenomenal sound would out weigh it. I have them hooked to a Marantz 7007 amp, it's a great combo.
Summary: I've never really enjoyed writing reviews of audio components, because, quite frankly, the hobby is so subjective as to make even the most well-informed review pretty dubious. That's why I no longer subscribe to any of the audio rags or read any e-zines or anything like that.
Summary: If your like me, you review something a 1000 times before buying it. well I did that with the sts and i wished i didn't wait so long! I went from a mid level polk towers(which i liked) to the sts and the difference was dramatic!
Summary: These Mythos STS speakers are truly the best, crystal clear sound, the built in subwoofer for massive bass when hearing music and watching movies, and the granite base gives it a nice touch. Goes very nicely with my Sony XBR4 52" LCD TV, Denon transport blu-ray player and Denon 2808ci AVR receiver.
Summary: I'm just using a pair in stereo now, and these speakers sound great. The bass is awesome. I like the fact that I didn't have to mess with crossover frequency - it's built in. Also, having two "subwoofers" minimizes the chances of a bass void or peak in my room.
