Ultra-shallow TVs are the hottest category in TVs today, thanks to space-saving qualities and elegant design. But it comes at the high cost of significantly poorer sound quality. With speakers that are small and poorly placed (usually on the bottom or on the back of the set), the result is that these ultra-slim TVs offer sound that is good enough for news broadcasts, but far from what is acceptable for sports, movies, and games.
The Solution: Revolutionary XTDD Technology Drivers
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 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 Mythos XTR series.
The secret to the Definitive Technology XTR-50’s extraordinary performance is Definitive’s patent-pending XTDD technology in the anodized Aluminum dome driver. Using state-of-the-art computer modeling and decades of speaker design experience, Definitive engineers eliminated every iota 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. The XTDD driver has the kind of dynamic punch, wide frequency range, and broad dispersion that conventional panel-type speakers simply cannot match.
To extend and deepen the bass response of such an impossibly thin speaker the 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 with be agog with amazement when they hear the huge rich sound that comes out of the wafer-thin XTRs.
Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Enclosure Saves Space and Improves Performance
Another secret to the Definitive Technology XTR-50’s astounding thin profile and superior performance is its aluminum cabinet. Specially shaping the enclosure and incorporating stiffing ribs and channels makes the space-efficient aluminum extrusion ultra-rigid and resonance-free. The magnets of the XTDD drivers protrude through the rear wall of the enclosure to further minimize depth.
Ultimate Placement Versatility
The Definitive Technology XTR-50 comes supplied with everything you need to place it wherever you want to use it. The XTR-50 can be mounted directly to the wall using the key-hole slots on the back of the enclosure and well-anchored screws. The speaker can be wall mounted using the supplied mounting bracket that allows either vertical or horizontal orientation with a total installed on-wall depth of only 40mm. Two adjustable support feet are supplied in cases where you place the XTR-50 on a shelf as a center channel speaker (horizontal orientation). For vertical shelf or table top placement the XTR-50 comes with a beautiful tempered smoked glass base. Whether you’re mounting it on wall or on shelf, the Definitive Technology XTR-50 is ready to look terrific and sound astounding.
