Sound great, small footprint, well constructed.

  • Summary: Wonderful tower speakers with excellent sound reproduction. Built in subwoofers eliminate the need for a separate subwoofer. We used them in an environment where the layout was not right and the wiring would have been difficult for a 5.1 speaker set up; so we opted for 2 channel. It is a fairly spacious area (about 1,000 sq ft). Larger speakers were called for, however, we did not want the depth or larger size of most towers. These speakers were the right decision.

A Former Def Tech Owner

L. Brightful, Amazon

  • 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. That included a pair of Mythos STS fronts and a Def Tech Trinity sub, which is the only Def Tech product I have kept. Initially, I was highly impressed with the STS Towers. They were sleek, attractive and I *thought* they delivered great sound.

Customer service

  • 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. Some of the metal feet attached to the granite base came off. It's completely my own fault (or rather the moving company's fault) but Definitive replaced them FREE of charge. This is excellent customer service! Thank you Definitive!

Outstanding Speakers

Vaughn Copey, Amazon

  • 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. The bass output is quite prodigious for such slender enclosures. Midrange is excellent. The highs can be a bit bright on certain recordings, but again, proper positioning can mitigate that.

STS is a fine speaker, no need for subwoofer in 18 X 22 room.

  • Summary: Speakers sound fantastic. After shipping both speakers needed to have a bead of silicon around the inside of the isolation box for the mids and tweeter. DT was very helpful on the minor repair, 8 screws and a bead of silicon fixed all.

Can't go wrong!

Connie Carol "CCR", Amazon

  • 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.

FAR better at music than you'd think . . .

Andrew Claps "Baby Blue", Amazon
18 December 2012
  • 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. I trust my ears and nothing else. Perhaps an extremist view, but nonetheless one that has served me very well in the last 5-6 years.

Great for music, cable and movies

  • Summary: I paired this with a pioneer sc-61. I have experience with the sound of these pioneer receivers with the D-amps. Music sounds so detailed. I also enjoy movie dialogue. It's very clear.

These sound amazing!!! No B.S.

  • 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! I have a medium sized living room and the speakers provide such amazing sound stage that is crystal clear. I have been listening to them for two months now and they get better and better.

BLOW MY MIND Definitive!!!

R. Gonzalez, Amazon
29 December 2011
  • 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. I also have the Definitive technology SSA-50 surround bar which goes great with my set up but I had to have these tower speakers.
