Summary: I purchased this speaker from an online retailer other than Amazon because I found it for less money after storing it in my Amazon "Shopping List" for a couple of weeks. Based on the professional reviews and customer comments I reviewed, I fully anticipated a superb listening experience. I was not disappointed. In fact, I was blown away. The clarity, detail and smoothness of sound is unsurpassed by anything I've ever listened to.
Summary: If you are considering Mythos 4 towers this center is the perfect match. Originally boutght Mythos 7 for 400.00 due to space restrictions but returned and got 3 for less and such a big difference in sound. It made my 4's come alive.
Summary: I hook up Mythos 3 center speaker with Mythos 4 main speakers and Super Cube sub SC4000. Dialogue from center speaker is very clear when watching movies and is above my expectation. Mythos 3 is perfect choice for sound system. I will recommend this speaker.
Summary: Because of space constraints, I needed a center with reduced height/depth. I still wanted good performance, and this unit comes through. It also blends very well with my Polk tower mains. Solid construction, classy appearance and excellent sound.
Pros: Quality. This speaker is very robust. I feel like I could drop it off a 2 story building and it only get a scratch. My Yamaha RX-V673 pushes it nicely. Easily sits on top of entertainment center below TV. I moved it to the wall just above TV. Included bracket made it easy.
Cons: Banana connectors on back are not centered. Made it harder to route wires to race up to the center of speaker.
Summary: Very helpful wall installation template comes with it. Plenty of mounting power with wall anchors. Suggest though, pre-drilling small holes because the "self-drilling" wall anchors that come with it have tips that snap off quite easily making the self-drilling process a little more difficult.
Pros: This thing is a work of art. Sound much bigger than the drivers would normally give you. Still run it as a small speaker in receiver setup. Not a overinflated msrp center. Worth 4 bills all day long.
