Product Details

Definitive Technology SuperTowers Gloss Black Floor Standing Speaker, Model MYTHOSSTSBK (Sold As Each)

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.

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.

I bought these loud speakers from a installer and would not recommend doing this. Buy Loud speakers from a dealer. Buying them from a installer rep of definitive Technology was the worst buying experience I've ever had in my 30 years of buying a lot of high end products. Speaker placement is critical and plan on needing LOTS of clean power.

Amazing speakers and customer service

By 

from Denver, CO

Comments about Definitive Technology SuperTowers Gloss Black 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 SuperTowers Gloss Black 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 SuperTowers Gloss Black 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 SuperTowers Gloss Black 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.

Second review.

By 

from Guelph ON, Canada

Comments about Definitive Technology SuperTowers Gloss Black Floor Standing Speaker:

I have received my two Mythos STS speakers on December 19 2011. Ever since they usually work hours and hours on a daily basis. And do they ever perform brilliant. Somehow my midranges and tweeters got broken along the way on both speakers and I have had replacements shipped in almost no time, no questions, and no headache thanks to your brilliant tech support. Four years later I am advocating Definitive to everyone who cares about sound. Even after four years of crazy extensive listening they still surprise me with their overall performance. There are very few things in life to make every day worth it waking up and these speakers do.

Love the Sound!

By 

from Connecticut

Comments about Definitive Technology SuperTowers Gloss Black Floor Standing Speaker:

I've just recently purchased these to replace my older BP7002 speakers. The 8060ST's are a great sounding addition. Much lighter for me to move around and they sound crisper without losing the booming base. I had a problem with both amps in the BP7002's due to a lighting strike. But overall, very happy with my purchase. One thing I noticed, the amp light has not gone off since I plugged them in. I read somewhere about software updates. So I may unplug them for 5 minutes and plug them back in to see if that powers the amps off. I also using 3rd party power cords; beefier. Perhaps Tech Support can weigh in on the sub light being on all the time! Thanks!
