Product Details

Definitive Technology SuperTowers Gloss Black Floor Standing Speaker, Model MYTHOSSTSBK

Features:

  • No Compromise Sonic Delight
    • For music and movie lovers who want audiophile-grade performance and drop- dead gorgeous looks from their loudspeakers, we offer the new Mythos STS — the smaller and more affordable sibling of the Mythos ST, the most critically acclaimed loudspeaker of 2007.
    • The Mythos STS combines a high-definition mid/high frequency monitor section with an integrated SuperCube® powered subwoofer for no-compromise sonic performance. With the Mythos STS there is no longer a need to find room for and run wires to a separate subwoofer to get the full visceral impact from your favorite music and movies. The STS can do it all.
  • Exquisite Styling and Build Quality
    • Like the rest of the award-winning Mythos Series, the STS boasts slim, space-efficient, modern design that perfectly complements today’s sleek video monitors. In order to make the Mythos STS an aesthetic enhancement for any room, we spared no expense or effort on design, fit and finish details. The extruded Aluminum enclosure is anodized (both silver and black finishes are offered) and hand-polished to a pearlescent sheen. The base is solid granite for both greater stability and a richer more elegant look. All of the Mythos STS styling emanates from a parabolic form, grounded as much in technical appropriateness as visual beauty. With emphasis on a narrow, deep column, the parabolic theme is repeated in the lines of the cap and granite base. There is an unabashed acknowledgement of classic “American Streamline” principles in the STS, communicating motion, direction and clean utility. Your decorator will be jealous.
  • State of the Art Definitive Technology
    • Each Mythos STS contains a D’Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 4-1/2" drivers surrounding a 1" dome tweeter housed in an acoustically isolated sealed enclosure. The drivers feature Definitive’s patent-pending Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) technology that supports the speaker cone at both the inner and outer edges for longer, more linear excursion, greater clarity and finely textured inner detail. The tweeter is a pure aluminum dome, which has been heat-treated to relax the crystal structure and then coated with a ceramic to produce extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess. The slim, curved shape of the enclosure reduces diffraction contributing to the STS’s remarkable imaging that is truly startling in its ability to float utterly lifelike highly defined sonic images across a broad and deep soundstage.
    • The subwoofer is built around a 5" x 10" racetrack-shaped polymer/carbon composite cone driver powered by a built-in 300-Watt digital amplifier and pressure-coupled to two 5" x 10" racetrack-shaped planar low-bass radiators for a total bass radiating area greater than a 12" woofer. A pair of STSs is like having two 12", 300-Watt powered subwoofers in your room without taking up all the floor space. The result is bass that is deep, powerful and impactful while at the same time having the kind of tight, controlled and accurate response of the finest and costliest audiophile speakers.
  • The Sound Will Amaze You
    • We could write adjectives all day long in an attempt to describe just how good the Mythos STS sounds and we would fall far short of capturing the experience. If you are a true music lover, you need to hear them for yourself to discover just how lifelike a pair of speakers can sound. You’ll hear depth and nuance to your music you have never heard before (unless you own a pair of speakers several times the cost of the STS). You will marvel at the dynamic impact and sheer bass power when watching movies, amazed that all that power is coming from just two small towers without a separate subwoofer. Yes, you will be astonished.
  • Home Theater System
    • The Mythos STSs can be combined with their matching center channel speaker (Mythos Three) and surrounds (Mythos Gems) for an exceptional surround system that, although not inexpensive, offers unmatched value.
