Definitive Technology - Mythos 175 W Speaker - Gloss Black

  • Model: Mythos SSA-42
  • SKU: 8994706
  • 4.3 (6)
First and foremost, a single speaker surround solution needs to have excellent audio fidelity and clarity to deliver a truly satisfying listening experience. It is here that Definitive's SSA-42 truly distinguishes itself. The front Left, Right and Center channel drivers utilize Definitive's exclusive and patent-pending Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) technology. Speaker cones usually have one support point at the circumference of the cone (called the surround) but BDSS drivers have two support points or surrounds. This design suppresses cone resonance and promotes a longer, more linear cone motion for higher output, lower distortion and more accurate frequency response. You'll enjoy perfectly natural and lifelike timbre with crystalline clarity on voices, musical instruments and movie sound effects, even at high-volume levels.

Best Buy Customer Reviews

Skip all the other soundbars. This is quality.5 Posted by: from: Oak Park, CA on Had issues getting the sound I needed in my small craftsman home living room. I attempted to use a Samsung soundboard, but found that it didn't quite work with my set up (receiver/tv). After some research I found out passive soundbar was the way to go if you still wanted to all the features on my receiver. This product is a beast. Sound great and boy is it made with some quality materials. Thing is pretty heavy and the housing is made of metal. Really enjoying the sound that comes out of this single speaker solution. Best buy should do a better job of having this think on display at the stores.

Great sound and size5 Posted by: from: on We had a passive sound bar before this one that we really liked but it was just too big for the new TV location. this one fit perfectly, it is nice and small but puts out big clear sound.

great sound5 Posted by: from: on Best sounding speaker I have ever owned. Don't miss my old true 5.1 surround set up at all. Every once and a while I think someone else is in the house due to this surprisingly good surround tech but even when just watching tv, it sounds perfect. This thing is heavier than expected.

Clean and Amazing sound out of a small package5 Posted by: from: San Diego,Ca on I must say that I was skeptical when I purchased this sound bar I really did not think it would sound as good as my 6 year old polk audio floor standing 5.1 speakers that sounded great but took up way too much space in my living room. and the fact that you still need a amp and sub added about $650 more for what I purchased was not fun I hooked up the Definitive Technology Mythos Solo Surround Array Speaker and mounted it under my new Samsung LED and I was already happy because it just looked awesome and clean and once I hooked it up to my system and tested it out I was Amazed on how good it sounded for just being a soundbar like speaker it gets loud and keeps the sound quality even at high volume If you want Great sound without the wires running all over the house or having to repair walls and ceilings due to wire hiding or you just don't want 5 speakers hanging around the room this is what you are looking for.. I even added 2 surround speakers to my amplifier and put the speakers behind my recliner and now I have a true surround sound and it is awesome. the 5 year definitive tech warranty is cool too

Beware... no built in amp or sub1 Posted by: from: Colorado Springs, CO on Noticing that there is no subwoofer is pretty obvious... But sifting through the nonsense to find out after the effect that you need to have an amplified receiver to use this is disheartening. Especially since it's hundreds of dollars higher than the other brands and they are self powered. In my opinion, it is not as they claim (at an affordable price) because now you have to couple in the price of a decent 5.1 or 7.1 receiver and a sub.
