Price: £3,780.00 Ex Tax: £3,150.00

The Mythos ST's advanced technologies and superior materials bring you sonic perfection precision fit & finish with jaw-dropping ultra high-end performance. No loudspeaker before them has achieved the balance of beauty and brawn at anywhere near their modest price. The Mythos STS’s magic starts with a sleek and sexy polished black or silver aluminum cabinet mounted on a beautiful polished granite base and continue with our most advanced components and technologies. Topping off the ground-breaking design is the incorporation of SuperCube™ powered subwoofers right into the enclosures. With two built-in 300 Watt powered subwoofers you’ll enjoy double the bass while saving floor space and enhancing the beauty of your room.

The Case for Integrated Subwoofers
Besides eliminating the need for a floor space hogging separate subwoofer, integrated subs offer dramatic performance benefits. First is the obvious benefit that you’ll have two subwoofers in the room instead of just one for simply more bass output. Most importantly the subwoofers are perfectly integrated with the mid/high section. Audiophiles often spend dozens of hours moving and adjusting their subwoofers’ crossover and phasing controls in pursuit of perfect subwoofer to main speaker “blending.” With the Mythos STS you won’t have to go through that kind of hassle to get audio perfection. Definitive’s engineers have perfectly adjusted the crossover and phase between the subwoofer and main speaker sections to achieve seamless blending and life-like sound. All you have to do is set the bass volume to match your room and taste then sit back and enjoy audio perfection.

Rock-solid Stunning Enclosure
The Mythos STS’s styling emanates from a parabolic form, grounded as much in technical appropriateness as visual beauty. With emphasis on a narrow, deep column, the parabolic theme is repeated in the lines of the cap and granite base. There is an unabashed acknowledgement of classic “American Streamline” principles in the STS, communicating motion, direction and clean utility.

The slim, curved shape of the enclosure reduces diffraction contributing to the STS’s remarkable imaging that is truly startling in its ability to float utterly lifelike sonic images across a broad and deep soundstage. The granite base combined with the heavy Toroidal  High-definition Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) technology driver(patent pending) transformer mounted on the bottom plate of the enclosure provides a low center of gravity for superior stability. The base incorporates 5 adjustable-height metal feet that may be fitted with either smooth furniture glide tips for wood or ceramic floors or spikes for carpeted floors.

The enclosure is extruded Aluminum with internal ribs for stiffening purposes. Strips of damping material are adhered to the inside of the extrusion to suppress ringing. The baffle is “Polystone” a dense and non-resonant mineral-filled Polymer material that is slightly oversized and is force fit into the extrusion ”mouth” to prevent the Aluminum from ringing. The midrange/tweeter array is isolated from the woofer enclosure by two pieces of MDF. Both woofer and mid/hi enclosures are sealed.

Midrange Drivers
Each Mythos STS contains a D’Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 4-1/2 inch drivers surrounding a 1inch dome tweeter housed in an acoustically isolated sealed enclosure. The drivers feature Definitive’s patent-pending Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) technology that supports the speaker cone at both the inner and outer edges for longer, more linear excursion, greater clarity and finely textured inner detail. The driver baskets are die cast Aluminum.

Tweeter
The tweeter is a pure aluminum dome, which has been heat-treated to relax the crystal structure and then coated with a ceramic to produce extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess.

Subwoofer System
The subwoofer is built around a 5 x 10 inch racetrack-shaped polymer/carbon composite cone driver powered by a built-in 300-Watt Class D amplifier and pressure-coupled to two 5" x 10" racetrack-shaped planar low-bass radiators for a total bass radiating area greater than a 12" woofer but with far greater control, definition and speed than a single sluggish large woofer. A pair of STSs is like having two 12", 300-Watt powered subwoofers in your room without taking up all the floor space. The result is bass that is deep, powerful and impactful while at the same time having the kind of tight, controlled and accurate response of the finest and costliest audiophile speakers.

Sonic Versatility
The precise accuracy, wide range response and high impact dynamic range of the Mythos STS makes it the perfect choice for systems ranging from audiophile 2-channel music-only to 7.1 channel home cinema systems. No matter what genres or music or movies you enjoy a highly accurate loudspeaker like the Mythos STS is your wisest choice.

Buy Now Pay Later is available on the majority of products we sell. No interest is payable as long as the full balance of the agreement has been cleared before the end of the 12 month period. You can elect to pay a deposit or not and you can control the payments on this agreement. You can settle the agreement early without any penalty and one payment can be left until the just before the end of agreement. You can also make regular payments by contacting Hitachi Capital.

Please note that monthly payments will commence 12 months from the date your agreement starts and will be payable of the same day of each subsequent month at an APR of 29.8% with interest calculated over 48 months on the original amount. If you settle any outstanding balance before the first repayment is due along with the administration fee of £29.00 then all interest charges are waived.

Although you will be contacted by Hitachi Capital as it reaches the end of the interest free period we highly recommend the client also diarises this separately due to the high APR if the balance is not fully cleared.

All the applications can be completed by the customer and a link will be emailed to the application page. If preferred we can take the details over the phone and can normally confirm acceptance of your application status during the call. There are different consumer laws depending on whether the agreement is for an in-store purchase or distance selling.

Release of goods

Due to the statutory cooling off period for consumers please note that goods cannot be released for 14 days after the date the agreement was signed by the customer if details are taken over the phone. For those completing forms at our store goods purchased can be released immediately. We recommend contacting us before arranging a visit to Kent Home Cinema to ensure we have stock of the item as some of these are specifically ordered in for clients.
