The Definitive Technology Mythos SSA-50 review although short still covers all the information relevant for the customer. The Solo Surround Array, a signature feature patented by Definitive Technology. It is meant to give you immersive surrounding sound without the need to incorporate back speakers.
Although quite costly I would agree with the price point. The product has been created to provide you with a high quality surrounding sound and durability. The home cinema soundbars are not meant to be versatile. They are meant to be, you guessed it, a home cinema in a single case. Mythos SSA-50 will give you exactly that. If you are after great sound you have found a great toy to keep you satisfied for the years to come.
There is no remote and Mythos SSA-50 as a speaker works together with a receiver thus there is no need for a separate dedicated remote control or Smartphone app. It does not work with Alexa.
The tweeters on the front are covered by a single plain matte panel. You do not have any button and all the inputs/outputs are located at the back. The item looks very sleek and stylish. The matte plastic looks expensive and yet sophisticated and understated.
The device itself is around 42 inches long and 30 pounds heavy. Although it is a single unit you will still have to think through your placement options. It does come with the nibs for the wall-mount placement giving you even more options.
This soundbar requires a multichannel receiver as well as a powered subwoofer. Altogether the aligned trio can give you a luxury realistic multidimensional sound. I would suggest that you need to tweak the woofer and the speakers to help them reciprocate and complete each other. The ProSub subwoofer from the same series can be a great addition to your portable home cinema.
The tweeter array is pretty universal and does not depend on the placement. The sound will bounce off the walls just right no matter where you choose to place the bar. Definitive Technology Mythos SSA-50 specs are really interesting. You get three dome tweeters, four butyl rubber surround tweeters and two high output free range ones.
There are no Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB or Ethernet connector options. The soundbar will only work as a part of your home cinema. Although the spheres of use are pretty limited it does deliver a home cinema level sound for around $500 regular retail price.
