Big-time performance from a flat speaker? It's possible with Definitive's Mythos XTR-60. You'll be amazed when you hear the rich, realistic detail and wide soundstage that this super-thin speaker can produce. Use one each for your home theater's left, right, and center channels, and enjoy high-performance sound from clean-looking speakers that measure a mere 1-1/2" deep.
Using precise computer modeling and years of design experience, Definitive created incredibly thin, space-efficient "XTDD" drivers. These shallow drivers optimize every part of the speaker surface to maintain a high level of performance. The XTR-60 uses four 3-1/2" XTDD drivers, each one pressure-coupled to a low-bass radiator, for big sound from a total of eight dome woofers. And at the center of the baffle is the same pure aluminum dome tweeter used in Definitive's flagship Mythos ST SuperTower® speakers. It produces extended highs, revealing nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess.
The Mythos XTR-60 comes with a wall-mounting bracket that allows for either vertical or horizontal placement, with a total installation depth of just 1-9/16 inches. It also comes with an attractive smoked-glass stand that lets you place it on a shelf or entertainment stand. The specially shaped enclosure is made of black hand-polished aluminum, and uses stiffing ribs and channels to make it rigid and resonance-free.
Put together a complete home theater system using XTR-60 speakers for your front three channels. Add on Definitive's Mythos Gem or Mythos Gem XL surround speakers for wraparound sound. And for high-impact bass, check out these Definitive subwoofers.
Did you know?
Your new speakers will probably sound better after several weeks of use than they do right out of the box. That's because the material surrounding the woofers will loosen up, allowing the drivers to move more fully. Definitive Technology estimates a break-in period of 24 to 48 hours of playback before the speakers will deliver optimum sound quality. For more information and helpful tips, check out this article from Definitive's website about conditioning your speakers.
Love the big sound from this small speaker. Very efficient and true sound....looks great, too.
Pros: Size Sound
These speakers are very sleek, stylish and a high quality combination of phenomenal sound and innovative design! I replaced an older set of Polk RTi70's and a CSi40 with these and all I can say is, "Wow! What an amazing experience!" As others have stated, a sub-woofer is absolutely required to maximize this type of speaker, but my older 10" Velodyne has been a superb match. I paired all of this with four smaller bi-polar, wall-mounted surround speakers and the result was a room completely filled with such a spacious sound that you really must experience it, to believe it! No regrets at all about making this purchase.
Pros: Slim Space Saving Wall-Mounted Profile, Elegant Match to most LED HDTV's
I was really suprised with the dynamics this speaker. I was going from the Definitive Technology BP 2002TL tower speakers to the Mythos. When paired with the SC4000 subwoofer I was amazed of the sound produced from such a thin speaker. Very vibrant. I sub woofer should definitiely be considered for an overall surround experience. Whether you are hanging them on the wall (like I did) or using the supplied stand or setting on a shelf, you should consider these speakers
Pros: Slim Design, multiple set up options, templates provided for on wall mounting makes it very easy, produces great sound
Cons: Would not say is a con but sub woofer is a must for deep rich bass. Makes since because speaker is so slim
The cabinet design is very modern and sleek, and fits perfectly with my 55" LED Samsung display. I upgraded to this set from a 10 year old Bose 701 Series II setup that I had, and wow what a difference. The highs and mids are very clear without any raspiness at all. Like other reviews have said, these speakers sound better at higher volumes than at low volumes, which I assume can be attributed to the size of the driver.
A by-product of the slim mount is that it is a very tight squeeze to get this thing on the wall with a wire coming in behind it. Also, a sub-woofer is a must with this setup.
Pros: - Slim design - Beautiful cabinet - Sounds great with no shrillness on top
Cons: - Wall bracket leaves something to be desired - Sub woofer is a must
I was optomistic that these would be good performers but when i got them dialed in i was shocked! This is absolutely incredible sound. I cannot detect any distortion at all even at very high volume levels! I ended up adding a B&W 10" 500W sub to cover the bass and it is a perfect match. Running these speakers straight off a Sonos ZP120 or through my Denon receiver both sound absolutely stunning! They also look incredible on the wall aside my 60" LED TV. The sound is in the air. It does not sound like it comes out of the speakers. Hard to describe. WELL worth the money. I am considering another set for another room.
Overview: The Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-60 loudspeaker offers maximum versatility for your home theater and flat-panel entertainment system (perfect size for 55"-65" TV); it can be used as an on-wall or shelf-mounted Front, Center, and Surround speaker. The Mythos XTR-60 features a high-gloss aircraft-grade extruded aluminum enclosure with proprietary damping technologies to ensure total rigidity and perfectly accurate sound. It also features four 3-1/2" XTDD anodized aluminum mid/bass drivers pressure-coupled to four 3-1/2" dome low-bass radiators, and a 1" (25mm) pure aluminum dome tweeter with an acoustically contoured faceplate for excellent high frequency extension, detail, and natural smoothness.
Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeter: The center-mounted 1" tweeter is the same hyper-definition pure aluminum dome tweeter found in Definitive's award-winning state-of-the-art Mythos ST SuperTower. The pure aluminum dome tweeter provides clarity, dynamic range, and extended high-frequency response.
XTDD Technology Drivers: The Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-60 loudspeaker utilizes Definitive's patent-pending XTDD technology anodized aluminum dome drivers for extraordinary performance. Using state-of-the-art computer modeling and decades of speaker design experience, Definitive engineers eliminated every inch of wasted space, optimized every part, and maximized the moving surface area of a dynamic driver to shrink it down to a very compact dimension without giving up ultra high performance audio fidelity. The XTDD drivers provide dynamic punch, a wide frequency range, and broad dispersion that flat vibrating membrane panel-type speakers simply cannot match.
Pressure Coupled Design: To extend and deepen the bass response of such a thin speaker, the four 3.5" XTDD drivers are pressure coupled to four anodized aluminum dome bass radiators.
Ultra-Thin Aluminum Enclosure: The Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-60 features an ultra-thin (1.5" deep) aircraft-grade aluminum cabinet that fits today's flat-panel televisions perfectly. By specially shaping the enclosure and incorporating stiffing ribs and channels, Definitive made the space-efficient extruded aluminum enclosure ultra-rigid and resonance-free. The magnets of the XTDD drivers protrude through the rear wall of the enclosure to further minimize depth. A thermally conductive gasket seals the enclosure/magnet interface and transfers heat from the driver's rare-earth magnet to the enclosure, making the whole enclosure a giant heat dissipater.
Magnetic Grille: The Mythos XTR-60 LCR speaker features a black cloth magnetic grille which easily attaches and detaches from the speaker.
Speaker Terminals: The Mythos XTR-60 is equipped with a plug-in C-clamp speaker terminal to attach your receiver's speaker wire (up to 14 AWG).
Applications: The Mythos XTR-60 can be used as left & right main, center, and surround speakers in your home theater audio system. The Mythos XTR-60 can be mounted on the wall or placed on a table-top vertically or horizontally as a left & right main speaker, center speaker, or surround speaker.
Tabletop Placement: The Mythos XTR-60 can be mounted vertically or horizontally on a tabletop or shelf. Two adjustable feet-stabilizers are supplied if you want to place the XTR-60 on a shelf as a center-channel speaker (horizontal orientation). The feet-stabilizers screw into the 1/4"-20 threaded inserts on the back of the speaker's enclosure. For vertical shelf or tabletop placement, the XTR-60 comes with a smoked tempered glass base. The bass assembly attaches to the speaker via the keyhole slots and threaded inserts on back of the enclosure.
Note: The XTR60 measures 35" tall x 9.625" wide x 6.1875" deep when attached to the included pedestal base.
Wall Mounting: The Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-60 can be mounted directly to the wall using the two key-hole slots on the back of the enclosure and the included wall-mount bracket (mounting screws sold separately). The Mythos loudspeaker can be mounted on the wall horizontally or vertically. The speaker measures 1.5625" deep with the wall-mount bracket attached.
Note: A horizontal and vertical template is supplied to help with installation.
