This review is from: Definitive Technology Floorstanding Tower Speaker with Built-in Subwoofer (Black)
Pros: Small, good sound, relatively affordable, modern looking. Designed to fit in aethetically wtih Flat screen TV setups
Cons: Could never really get satisfying sound of of them, and the bass was incredibly overwhelming at times, but when turned all teh way up the mids and highs downed out the lows. THESE ARE TOTALLY OUTCLASSED BY THE MYTHOS ST. If you are trying to decide between the two. Dont give it another thought. Go for the ST model. YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY
Other Thoughts: If you only heard these, you may be reluctant to listen to the Mythos ST. Which would be a shame, because teh ST's are simply the best speakers for the money anywhere.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Broad balance sound stage, deep deep bass, perfect highs no sibilance. Everything is crisp clean deep hard soft smooth...... you get the idea. I got the STS's first, and kept comparing them to a friends 15,000 Paigae's, it was no competition. Every time I heard his I foudn more and more at fault with the STS's. So I found the ST's here for an insane price and decided to try the upgrade
Cons: NOT ONE! If I had to nit pick. There is a relatively narrow sweet spot where all thee sounds converge. that may be my apartmetn though. These are rather large speakers. They weigh about 90 lbs each, but they are gorgeous, stately, and fit in any modern decor
Other Thoughts: Im no longer jealous of my friends $15,000 speakers. They may have a bit of an edge reproducing the way sound moves through spaces (I swear it sounds like things are moving toward you and away, and all he has is a 2 speakers stereo setup). But the 14,000 difference, and the insanely high quality of these leaves me extremely happyREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Insanely low frequency response
Decent size so as it doesn't take up too much room
Trust Def Tech, less fan boy more zealot so Im sure this will be great
Cons: None yet, but I may have made a frivalous purchase. Will update after some listening. I also own the Def Tech Mythos ST's for my fronts, and the Mythos STS's for my rears (as well as a Martin Logan Motif Center channel). All 4 Def Tech Mythos speakers have subs built in. The larger ST models have a 6x10-inch long-throw racetrack subwoofer coupled to two 6x10-inch long-throw bass radiators. They are said to be equal to one 15 inch sub in each tower (each rated at 300 watts). The STS models are almost identical but obviously smaller and do not have nearly the range or sound stage the ST model does. However, these also have a 5x10-inch long-throw racetrack subwoofer coupled to two 5x10-inch long-throw bass radiators which the manufacturer claims has the equivalent output of a 12" subwoofer (again in each tower at 300 watts)
Other Thoughts: So with the 4 mythos towers I already have 1200 watts of bass, and the equivalent of two 15" subs in the front and two 12" subs in the back. Needless to say, I could really peeve off my (Manhattan) neighbors if I wanted too. And at times its even a bit much for me and I fiddle with bass knobs constantly. Got a great deal on this so thought Id see if maybe it evens out the sound stage a bit (bass seems to be too high at times then to low, depending on the media thats playing back)READ FULL REVIEW
