Product Details

Definitive Technology Gloss Black SuperTower Floor Standing Speaker, Model MYTHOSSTBK

Overall sonic performance is in a class by itself especially when taking into account the svelte profile and remarkably affordable price. Imaging and depth retrieval is simply stunning. The STs, whether used in stereo or as part of a multi-channel music or home theater system, are capable of recreating a three dimensional soundstage which is breathtaking in terms of its ability to make musicians and action come alive in the listening room. The resolution of the D’Appolito arrays with their newly designed drivers combines ultimate clarity with a natural silky smoothness. And the soul-stirring bass, which is produced by the dual subwoofers, is capable of earthshaking dynamics as well as the most subtle and detailed musical nuances.

I have been studying speakers for the past 3 years and the Mythos [ST] SuperTowers were the first speakers to actually speak to me. I am still blown away by the clarity and rich bass produced by the towers. Great speakers are sometimes followed by a great warranty and these are, 5 years. I've tested everything from movies, music, games, mp3s and the Mythos STs excelled in every test. I can't say enough about these speakers but I can say they will be in my home for years to come. Thank you Definitive Technology for allowing me to hear music and movies the way they should be heard.

After listening to a friends BP-8080s I jumped on the Mythos STS. I was really expecting more since I was only comparing them to my JBL studio 530's The base is a million times better as they have a dedicated sub woofer, but that's not the whole story to a speaker. The sound stage of the STS's does not even come close. No matter how far they are from the wall or their direction of projection. Furthermore the speakers mid range and highs are not well balanced. Now this effect is not due to the balance but the sharpness. The 530s have more detail in the music, more depth. the sound is very clean but not sharp... the STS's just sound very sharp and intrusive, not a pleasant listening experience. Needless to say I am only comparing it with a speaker that's a third of the price. experience.

Amazing speakers and customer service

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Definitive Technology Gloss Black SuperTower Floor Standing Speaker:

Based on online reviews, I was certain I was going to buy the GoldenEar Triton 7, but just to be sure, I went to the local audiophile shop and test drove them, comparing them to a similarly priced pair of B&W speakers and the Def Tech BP-8060s. I left with these Def Tech's. The choice was easy. To my ear, these speakers easily out performed the others. Everything I listened to (rock, indie, hip hop, and jazz) sounded clearer and more defined in these speakers than they did in the others I tested in the same price range. These even outshone several speakers from a much higher price range. The sound in my house is even better. Not only do they sound great, customer service has been unbelievably responsive and accommodating. I really can't say enough good things about these speakers and the company. Highly recommend buying these speakers to anyone looking for great sound and great value.

An extraordinary product

By 

from Virginia Beach, VA, United States

Comments about Definitive Technology Gloss Black SuperTower Floor Standing Speaker:

I have owned many types and brands of speakers in the last forty years, and none of them had the performance offered by these. The airiness and spaciousness of the sound is truly remarkable. You will hear demon trumpets and wizard trombones. They are not inexpensive, but you will never need to buy another speaker, and nothing in my experience matches them. By the way, I noticed another reviewer's comment about the difficulty of installing the screws for the stabilizer feet. I solved that problem by overboring the pilot holes slightly. I bought these a week after getting a pair of -8040s, to which these comments also apply. Be aware that the -8060s are quite heavy, and plan accordingly.

Comments about Definitive Technology Gloss Black SuperTower Floor Standing Speaker:

I've had my 8060st towers for two years without issue and they do everything well. Music is balanced and warm,movies sound robust and the low end rocks the house. I recently upgraded to the 8060hd center and all I can say is wow!! Vocals are crisp,and low frequencies are impact full and well blended. My surrounds are the 1.2bpx and still sound incredible. Love my def techs!!!

Excellent Sound, Excellent Bass

By 

from Andrews, TX

Comments about Definitive Technology Gloss Black SuperTower Floor Standing Speaker:

I went in to store to hear another speaker based on the reviews from different sites. Lucky for me these BP8060 speakers were right beside the "other" speaker. I was able to listen to the same material while switching from one speaker to another. These BP8060 speakers really blew the "other" speakers away. Needless to say I ended up buying a pair of the BP8060 speakers and installing in my home theater. I replaced two older model B & W 600 series speakers and a Velodyne 12 inch subwoofer and picked up a much improved sound stage and no loss of bass. The subwoofer set up in the BP8060 speakers are very, room shaking good. Awesome set up, should have listened to these speakers much sooner. Now I need to upgrade my center channel and surrounds. Great products.
