    The Perfect Match


    So my setup includes (2) Definitive Mythos STS front speakers, One Definitive Mythos Ten center channel, a Martin Logan Dynamo sub, and four of the XL Gems. I have a really nice 7.1 setup, but unfortunately at this time there is not much content delivering 7.1 but I'm set for the future. So technically speaking this setup is not correct since I should have got the mythos nine center and just the regular gems, but I'm moving into a much nicer apartment and the living area is much larger so I wanted a little bigger sound all around. These speakers are like my STS's except for the bass, but they are extremely clear and pack a punch whenever you need it. This might seem funny, but the movie I watched first was Pinnochio on blu-ray because it is in 7.1 and the most interactive scene is in the work shop where Geppedo has all the toys go off and celebrates Pinnochio being alive. Every speaker was giving me something different and it put me in the movie better than any theater has been able to. Besides audio quality, they have a supreme build quality and are much more durable to wear and tear also can stand up against pets better than most speakers can.

    Wow! These tiny speakers can kick!


    I had to wait for my Mythos ST floorstanding speakers so I decided to use the Mythos Gem XLs as my front speakers in the meantime. I barely noticed that these were small speakers since the sound I received from them was fantastic. Out of all the speakers I've looked at, no other speaker set compares to the look & sound of what I think modern speakers are supposed to be. Handsdown, I wish everyone had a pair of these.
