Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-60 Bad Box – 3 Pack with Denon AVR-S540 B-Stock
The Future Has Arrived It’s The Mythos XTR-60!
The Thinner the TV, the Worse the Sound
Ultra-shallow TVs are the hottest category in TVs today. People love their space-saving qualities and elegant design. But it comes at a high cost—significantly poorer sound quality. The speakers in these ultra-thin TVs are small and poorly placed (usually on the bottom or on the back of the set) not even facing the listener. The result is sound that is good enough for news broadcasts but far from what is acceptable for sports, movies and action/adventure programming. Imagine the letdown when you return home after seeing Avatar or similar audio/visual blockbuster in a Dolby Digital cinema and turn on your TV to watch a DVD with cheap 2-inch speakers providing the sound!
In order to equal the total high impact sight and sound experience that high definition digital sources are capable of delivering, a great TV deserves a great component audio system. And the only component loudspeakers that can deliver clarity, dynamic impact and life-like realism while matching the slim styling of new generation TVs are the Definitive XTR series.
Revolutionary XTDD Technology Drivers
The secret to the XTR-60 extraordinary performance is Definitive’s patented XTDD technology anodized Aluminum dome driver. Using state-of-the-art computer modeling and decades of speaker design experience, Definitive engineers eliminated every bit of wasted space, optimized every part and maximized the moving surface area of a dynamic driver to shrink it down to an impossibly compact dimension without giving up ultra high performance audio fidelity! The XTDD driver has the kind of dynamic punch, wide frequency range and broad dispersion that flat vibrating membrane panel-type speakers simply cannot match.
To extend and deepen the bass response of such an impossibly thin speaker four active XTDD drivers are pressure coupled to four anodized Aluminum dome bass radiators. The center-mounted tweeter is the same hyper-definition Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeter found in Definitive’s award-winning state-of-the-art Mythos ST SuperTower®. The total effect is the kind of clarity, dynamic range and extended response that one would expect from a premium-priced normally-sized speaker. Your friends and family will be agog with amazement when they hear the huge rich sound that comes out of the wafer-thin XTRs.

Is It Thin Enough?
With TV manufacturers advertising TVs with 1.25 inch and even less than 1-inch depth one might wonder if the XTR-60 is shallow enough to look good next to these impossibly thin TVs. The answer is a resounding YES. First, the advertised depth of a TV is the depth without the hardware necessary to mount the TV on a wall. For examplethe leading brand of LED TVs is advertised as being 1.2 inches deep. But the wall mount hardware brings the installed depth to 1.75-inches, .25-inches deeper than the XTR-60 installed on-wall. Should TVs get even thinner the XTR-60’s design is up to the challenge. The XTR-60 is bow shaped with knife-edge sides. The sides are less than an inch from the wall so even if TVs get shallower; the XTR-60 will be up to the task
