Absolutely beautiful and wonderful sounding tower speakers. Fit and finish of these speakers has to be seen in person, one can tell development money was spent on this re-design and construction. Very low hours on pair. Bought for a listening room that did not come to fruition. They are approximately a year old, but have been boxed up in storage. I have rated them a 9, but as I placed them back in the double walled boxes, I could not find a singular blemish. The remote and spikes have never been taken out of their respective boxes. This pair is as close to "new" as it gets.
From the Definitive Audio Website;
Mythos ST-L represents a major redesign of this consummate Definitive Technology floor standing loudspeaker. Like the original Mythos ST, Mythos ST-L features a built-in powered subwoofer in an elegant extruded aluminum enclosure. But the ST-L is more than a refinement of the previous model. It is, in fact, a meticulous rethinking of the original high performance super tower. Drivers, tweeter, amplifier and user interface, all have been significantly reworked to offer serious audio listeners elegant appearance, greater convenience and exhilarating performance.
