The Mythos ST SuperTower, which has already been awarded the 2007 Innovations Award for design and engineering excellence begins with a sleek and sexy polished black or silver aluminum monocoque cabinet mounted on a beautiful polished granite base. It contains advanced Definitive components and technologies that have been engineered to deliver sonic performance on a par with the finest and most expensive loudspeakers in the world according to Definitive Technology. The Mythos’ trend setting concept of form and function has been further evolved and carried considerably further in the ST by the incorporation of high power built-in SuperCube subwoofers right into the sleek aluminum cabinets.
Each Mythos ST contains a D’Appolito array consisting of two high-definition Definitive BDSS 5.25” drivers (patent pending) surrounding a new generation Definitive pure aluminum dome tweeter. The drivers incorporate a Balanced Dual Surround System and the tweeter incorporates a new voice coil, new dome, new surround and a new special acoustically contoured faceplate.
The subwoofer is built around a newly designed Definitive racetrack shaped carbon fiber coned driver, which has a Finite Element Magnetic Analysis optimized magnet structure. This long excursion, very fast active driver is pressure-coupled to two racetrack shaped planar medite infrasonic radiators. The subwoofer driver array is powered by a built-in 300-watt digital amplifier. Definitive claims the low frequency performance is exceptional and is basically similar to Definitive’s award-winning SuperCube I.
The STs, whether used in stereo or as part of a multi-channel music or home theater system are capable of recreating a three dimensional soundstage that has been described as breathtaking in terms of its ability to make musicians and action come alive in the listening room. The resolution of the D’Appolito arrays with their newly designed drivers combines clarity with a natural silky smoothness. And the soul-stirring bass, which is produced by the dual subwoofers, is capable of earthshaking dynamics as well as the most subtle musical nuances.
The Mythos STs, which retail for $1,799 each, can be combined with their matching center channel speaker (Mythos 8) and surrounds (Mythos Gem XLs) for what Definitive considers to be an exceptional surround system that, although not inexpensive, offers unmatched value at its $4,995 price.

New "ProCinema“ 600 SubSat System
Definitive’s new ProCinema 600 System is their new entry level $799 6-piece home theater system. The ProCinema 600 System incorporates the same new technologies and advancements, including BDSS drivers, pure aluminum dome tweeters, planar medite passive radiators and a 250-watt SuperCube technology powered subwoofer, which have made the new ProCinema 800 and 1000 systems popular sellers.
The satellites and center channel are available in high-gloss hand rubbed piano gloss black (with matching black subwoofer) or gloss white. The satellites can be shelf mounted with their unique tri-lobed base, wall mounted using the built-in keyhole mount or optional pivot mount or stand mounted with their optional floor stands. The center channels have an adjustable foot for shelf mounting or can be wall mounted using their built-in threaded inserts.
Sonically the new ProCinema 600 System is a revelation in terms of achieving incredible sound at an affordable price. Their imaging is absolutely boxless, spacious and three-dimensional while delivering pinpoint specificity and localization when called for. They are velvety smooth with a “you are there” presence which us unique at any price and unheard of in this price range according to Definitive. The 600 system is dynamic but capable of great subtlety so it excels equally with music or movies.
