I am looking at the DefTech Mythos Nine as an on-wall system to replace my old setup. The Nine x 3 as L/C/R and Gem x 2 as surrounds plus a Subwoofer.
I need to get some impressions of what the Nine sounds like since where I'm from I could only demo the Mythos Two/Three on-walls, the Four and the STS speakers. The Two/Three sounded okay to me, the sound seems a bit recessed, while the Four sounded good, and the STS sounded great!
I've emailed DefTech regarding this and this is what they told me:
The Mythos Four sounds similar to the Mythos Two/Three speakers. (The tonal balance of the Mythos Nine is not very similar to the Mythos Four.) Except for the powered subwoofer built-into the Mythos STS tower, the Mythos Nine is really the top half of a Mythos STS tower.
The level of performance produced by a set of Mythos Nines and a SuperCube I/II would be in the same league as a set of Mythos STS towers.
Now this sounds very promising for the Nine but is this a good assessment of the performance of the Nine? Can anyone give me some input on this, someone with actual experience with the Mythos Nine on-walls?
I'd really appreciate it if any of you (mantis, maybe) could help me out as I really need reassurance to its sound quality before shelling out.
