Definitive Technology Mythos STS Supertower Speakers

Introduction

Definitive Technology made a big splash with the introduction of the innovative Mythos ST tower speaker back in 2007 - its sleek elegant design and proportions along with some serious technology and integral powered race-track shaped subwoofers made it an instant hit. And oh boy it sounded smooth! Of course this was nothing new for current President Sandy Gross who founded DT back in 1990 and introduced one successful speaker after another. The Mythos ST however was special and it represented some new thinking with cutting edge, space-saving design consumers wanted and thankfully because of Sandy's audiophile sensibility, they sure sounded amazing.

Rest is for the meek and Definitive Technology of Owings Mills Maryland slightly scaled down the Mythos ST and creates the Mythos STS. I'd first heard it in a grand room during CES in Las Vegas last year and did a double-take before realizing it wasn't the ST. Without exaggeration it was probably one of the best sounding rooms at CES.

So when offered a pair for review and a personal visit from VP of Marketing, Paul DiComo to set them up and have dinner I eagerly accepted - such a deal! Paul arrived, we unpacked and bolted the granite base to the bottoms, sat around and listened for a few minutes pushing the speakers around a bit before heading out to dinner.

Over the next several weeks, by the time I had them set up using the proper gear I was smitten, I heard transparency at one end and deep bottom at the other. The sad part is Paul knows where I live.
