This remarkable system is centered on the extraordinary Mythos STS, the speaker about which Stereophile magazine said "just might be the best loudspeaker I've heard for $3000/pair" and SoundStage.com raved "...performance unrivalled at its price point." The Mythos Nine center and Mythos Gem surrounds are perfectly matched to the STS for seamless surround performance. Featuring high impact SuperCube powered subwoofers built-in to the STS SuperTowers, this system does not require a separate powered subwoofer to deliver engrossing and dynamic sound from movie soundtracks and your favorite music CDs.
Of all the outstanding products reviewed by Sound & Vision magazine in 2008, only one was selected as "Audio Product of the Year;" not merely "Speaker of the Year" but "Audio Product of the Year." And that "best of the best" audio product is the very system you are looking at right now; a speaker system consisting of Definitive Technology Mythos STS SuperTowers, Mythos Nine center and Mythos Gem surrounds.

"...prepare to be amazed. The Mythos STS is one of the most exciting products that I have come across in a long time...unrivalled at its price point." - Roger Kanno - SoundStage.com
As well as earning Sound & Vision's highest recommendation, the Mythos STS SuperTowers were awarded SoundStage!.com's 2008 Reviewer's Choice Award for Aesthetics and Sound. Home Theater magazine called the STS system "Crisp, Lush, Focused" and tagged it with a coveted Top Pick award. The STS also took home two Innovations Design and Engineering awards at CES 2009, one for High Performance Audio and the other for Home Theater Speakers. One industry award is an honor, five is a sweep. Yes, this system is that good.
