Executive Overview

Following up the critically lauded Mythos ST introduced in 2007, Definitive has developed the Mythos STS, a smaller, lower priced Mythos floor-standing loudspeaker boasting an integrated SuperCube powered subwoofer for ultimate floor space efficiency.

Like the rest of the Mythos Series, the STS boasts slim, space efficient modern design. Its sleek polished black or silver aluminum monocoque cabinet is mounted on a beautiful solid granite base and incorporates Definitive’s most advanced components and technologies. The Mythos concept has been further dramatically advanced by building SuperCube subwoofers into the Mythos STSs’ sleek aluminum cabinets.

Each Mythos STS contains a D’Appolito array consisting of two high-definition Definitive Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) 4-1/2 inch drivers (patent pending) surrounding a 1-inch pure aluminum dome tweeter. The subwoofer is built around a racetrackshaped carbon fiber driver pressure-coupled to two racetrackshaped planar low-bass radiators. The subwoofer driver array is powered by a built-in 300-watt digital amplifier.

Compared to the Mythos ST, the smaller STS (47-1/2" vs. 52" high) sounds almost identical to its larger sibling but with slightly lower ultimate volume output and dynamic range. The Mythos STS will be available in February 2008 in both polished black and silver. The original Mythos ST’s MSRP rises slightly to $1999 each while the STS’s MSRP is $1499 each.
