Summary: I was really suprised with the dynamics this speaker. I was going from the Definitive Technology BP 2002TL tower speakers to the Mythos. When paired with the SC4000 subwoofer I was amazed of the sound produced from such a thin speaker. Very vibrant. I sub woofer should definitiely be considered for an overall surround experience.
Pros: Slim Design, multiple set up options, templates provided for on wall mounting makes it very easy, produces great sound
Cons: Would not say is a con but sub woofer is a must for deep rich bass. Makes since because speaker is so slim
Summary: These speakers are very sleek, stylish and a high quality combination of phenomenal sound and innovative design! I replaced an older set of Polk RTi70's and a CSi40 with these and all I can say is, "Wow! What an amazing experience!" As others have stated, a sub-woofer is absolutely required to maximize this type of speaker, but my older 10" Velodyne has been a superb match.
Pros: Slim Space Saving Wall-Mounted Profile, Elegant Match to most LED HDTV's
Summary: I used these speakers to flank a thin tv and was surprised that it hugged the wall more than the TV did. Great sound, very powerful for my needs 12' X 21' room size. Definite wow factor when guest see the set up. Looks very clean. Make sure the inches match the length of the TV... (See personalized picture above with Marantz & Garnett photos). I initially was going to purchase a 59" Plasma, which matched the length of the speakers.
Summary: These speakers are worth every dime I spend on them!! They fit perfect next to my projection screen without standing out, and deliver great sound from my L/R front speakers. I going to replace my center next with the same XTR 60.
Summary: Now this is how music and surround sound was meant to be heard. Amazing sound! I have a pretty good size room (30' X 25') and these speakers along with the Reference Supercube fills the room very nicely. Customer Service was also great to answer any questions I had. Definitive Technologies Rocks!!!
Summary: The cabinet design is very modern and sleek, and fits perfectly with my 55" LED Samsung display. I upgraded to this set from a 10 year old Bose 701 Series II setup that I had, and wow what a difference. The highs and mids are very clear without any raspiness at all. Like other reviews have said, these speakers sound better at higher volumes than at low volumes, which I assume can be attributed to the size of the driver.
Pros: - Slim design - Beautiful cabinet - Sounds great with no shrillness on top
Cons: - Wall bracket leaves something to be desired - Sub woofer is a must
Excerpt: Ordered 3 of the XTR60s right, left, center as part of a package with with two Gem XLs and two Supercube 3s. First of all, Vanns service was great. They gave me a great package price. I received the shipment on time. The speakers arrived in perfect condition. They look great next to my 65 Samsung TV. They sound incredibly clear and detailed. Its difficult to describe, but it almost doesnt sound like the sound is coming out of the speakers..
Summary: I was optomistic that these would be good performers but when i got them dialed in i was shocked! This is absolutely incredible sound. I cannot detect any distortion at all even at very high volume levels! I ended up adding a B&W 10" 500W sub to cover the bass and it is a perfect match. Running these speakers straight off a Sonos ZP120 or through my Denon receiver both sound absolutely stunning! They also look incredible on the wall aside my 60" LED TV.
