The Definitive Technology Mythos STS SuperTower combines stunningly beautiful cosmetics and precision fit and finish with jaw-dropping ultra high-end performance. No loudspeaker before them has achieved the balance of beauty and brawn at anywhere near their modest price. The Definitive Technology Mythos STS’s magic starts with a sleek and sexy polished black or silver aluminum cabinet mounted on a beautiful polished granite base and continue with our most advanced components and technologies. Topping off the ground-breaking design is the incorporation of SuperCube powered subwoofers right into the enclosures. With two built-in 300 Watt powered subwoofers youll enjoy double the bass while saving floor space and enhancing the beauty of your room.
The Case for Integrated Subwoofers
Besides eliminating the need for a floor space hogging separate subwoofer, integrated subs offer dramatic performance benefits. First is the obvious benefit that you’ll have two subwoofers in the room instead of just one for simply more bass output. Most importantly the subwoofers are perfectly integrated with the mid/high section. Audiophiles often spend dozens of hours moving and adjusting their subwoofers crossover and phasing controls in pursuit of perfect subwoofer to main speaker “blending.” With the Definitive Technology Mythos STS you wont have to go through that kind of hassle to get audio perfection. Definitives engineers have perfectly adjusted the crossover and phase between the subwoofer and main speaker sections to achieve seamless blending and life-like sound. All you have to do is set the bass volume to match your room and taste then sit back and enjoy audio perfection.
The Definitive Technology 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.
The slim, curved shape of the enclosure reduces diffraction contributing to the Definitive Technology Mythos STS’s remarkable imaging that is truly startling in its ability to float utterly lifelike sonic images across a broad and deep soundstage. The granite base combined with the heavy Toroidal transformer mounted on the bottom plate of the enclosure provides a low center of gravity for superior stability. The base incorporates 5 adjustable-height metal feet that may be fitted with either smooth furniture glide tips for wood or ceramic floors or spikes for carpeted floors.
The enclosure is extruded Aluminum with internal ribs for stiffening purposes. Strips of damping material are adhered to the inside of the extrusion to suppress ringing. The baffle is “Polystone” a dense and non-resonant mineral-filled Polymer material that is slightly oversized and is force fit into the extrusion “mouth” to prevent the Aluminum from ringing. The midrange/tweeter array is isolated from the woofer enclosure by two pieces of MDF. Both woofer and mid/hi enclosures are sealed.
