Definitive Technology: Studio 3, Bjorn's Audio - Video in San Antonio

Michael Grover, Definitive Technology national account manager, was demonstrating Definitive’s Mythos ST loudspeakers ($4000/pair) with built-in self-powered subwoofers, driven by a PS Audio Trio integrated amplifier fed by a Rega Apollo CD player. Though many people perceive the Mythos ST as a “home theater” speaker, the demo proved what I already knew through my own reviewing experiences; namely, that the Mythos ST is a very accomplished music speaker, too.
Grover and I joked about the fact that, at many trade shows, Definitive products are typically demonstrated exclusively with very high-quality, high-end audiophile recordings. Going with the flow of the day’s event, however, which was to “celebrate music,” Grover and I (somewhat conspiratorially) decided to play a few “golden oldies” that were long on musical goodness, but were nothing to rave about in terms of audiophile sound quality. But such was the versatility of the Mythos ST that the discs sounded fine anyway. More importantly, Grover and I had fun (which is what this sport is all about, no?).
The smaller version of the Mythos ST, called the Mythos STS, was also on demonstration in Bjorn's Studio 1, the room Yamaha was using for its demonstrations.
