5.0 out of 5 stars Good Bang For the Buck, September 29, 2011
This review is from: Definitive Technology Mythos ST 120v Supertower Speaker (Single, Black) (Electronics)
These are very good speakers. I use them just for 2 channel music.
I have had them for a few months, and have put them through the paces with good and bad tunes. I might not be an audiophile, but I have some very good stuff I have assembled over the years.

Most snobs would never give these a listen due to the name of a mass producer on them. That is too bad as mass produced things greatly reduce the cost and either there is quality in the product or there is not. The name badge means nothing. I find this true of many POLK products also. These Def Tec ST Speakers are quality.

Back to the speakers --
For me, don't need a sub for these. If I had them at the TV, of course, but for music - not needed. I have a good sub hooked in, but it is wasted there.

These can work well in a large room. I have them in my basement/bar, and the room is about 1100 sq ft. They handle it with ease. The are very musical, the highs are clear and the bottom is tight. I am very impressed by these speakers, and while they are not cheap, they don't break the bank and are certainly a "best buy" in the price range.
I would say they might be overkill for mains in a 5.1 TV system, especially as you would still want a sub for the car explosions - ha,ha. For music, they are very good. If you take the time to read a little and set them up right, incredible!

I have mine hooked to a SunFire amp, 600 watts to each channel, but I think they would sound quite good with less power as they have build in amp power for the low end. I will soon be trying them out with two 40 watt mono tube blocks hand built at CarverFest 2011 by MIKE with the help of audio genius Bob Carver. I'll try to post back on that.

I play a REGA P-5 turntable through the Def Tec speakers with a SunFire Preamp. The Def Tec speakers sound incredible, and are in the range of any speakers I just heard at CarverFest.
