High WAF

Bill, Crutchfield
4 November 2015
  • Summary: I am into high fidelity, so this world of small speakers that do not play full range is not my favorite. However, my better half leads me to do things I do not want to do and my life is richer for it.
  • Pros: Blends in to TV. Great sound for dialogue. One of few choices in a flat wall mount LCR.
  • Cons: I wish it played a little more full range (down to 50 Hz or so). You need a sub for that or another workaround like we did.

Mixed Feelings

Mike, Crutchfield
26 October 2015
  • Summary: If using for Movies they sound great however the tv speakers actually sound better when people are speaking. I am disappointed in the performance playing music which sounds hollow with no depth or warmth.
  • Pros: easy setup
  • Cons: Very expensive for the versatility

Great Speaker

Quigley, Crutchfield
31 August 2015
  • Summary: Exactly what I wanted. Was looking for a speaker bar to mount on the wall below my TV to go along with my sub and rear speakers. Sounds and looks great. Somewhat difficult to wall mount with no provided screws.
  • Pros: Looks awesome. Excellent sound clarity and volume with music and tv/movies. Exactly what I was wanting in a speaker bar.
  • Cons: Wall mount was somewhat difficult with no easy way to get the wires into the back of the unit. Had to cut an extra hole in my wall for wires so speaker would fit flush to the wall...thus only 4 stars...otherwise it would have been an easy 5 star review.

Great product if you are using an AVR and only need speakers.

  • Pros: Decent sound.
  • Cons: Incorrectly sized mounting template.

Speaker looks and sounds fantastic - difficult to mount

Mike, Crutchfield
7 August 2014
  • Summary: The speaker is mounted on the wall directly below my 48" flat panel television. It sounds great with my Denon AVR-X2000 receiver and Definitive ProSub 800 (my living room is quite large). We can actually hear the dialogue in movies/shows.
  • Pros: Great appearance, good sound for any speaker (much less one of this size), various options for mounting and/or standing up
  • Cons: Price, lack of mounting screws, difficulty routing speaker wire above the speaker when wall-mounted

Just what we needed

JeffW, Crutchfield
7 August 2014
  • Summary: In order to get a larger television into our living room our tower speakers had to go. I still wanted to use our receiver to handle the switching of our components and to power our speakers, so the Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-SSA3's seemed a good direction to go.
  • Pros: build quality, sound for television, ease of use
  • Cons: sound quality for loud music playing

Definitive Quality

16 August 2013

  • Pros: Overall size and thinness of the speaker.
  • Cons: Haven't seen any yet.

Great sound bar except for one design flaw.

Art, Crutchfield
25 September 2012
  • Summary: This sound bar exudes quality. The audio is great, it's truly beautiful, and solidly constructed. I disagree with another reviewer about the logo. IMO, it's fine; not obtrusive at all. But it has a big design flaw: the connector. There is plenty of room on the back for proper connectors.

Excellent product

JayG, Crutchfield
13 February 2012
  • Summary: I recently purchased this item along with the Def Tech Mythos 20BP surrounds. I also have a Def Tech Supercube 2000 Sub and a Denon AVR 1912 Reveiver. I have a non-ideal set up as my couch is against the back wall.
  • Pros: Great sound in an attractive looking speaker.
  • Cons: None
