Definitive Technology Mythos SSA-42
First and foremost, a single speaker surround solution needs to have excellent audio fidelity and clarity to deliver a truly satisfying listening experience. It is here that Definitive’s SSA-42 truly distinguishes itself.
The front Left, Right and Center channel drivers utilize Definitive’s exclusive and patent-pending Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) technology. Speaker cones usually have one support point at the circumference of the cone (called the surround) but BDSS drivers have two support points or surrounds.
This design suppresses cone resonance and promotes a longer, more linear cone motion for higher output, lower distortion and more accurate frequency response. You’ll enjoy perfectly natural and lifelike timbre with crystalline clarity on voices, musical instruments and movie sound effects, even at high-volume levels.

About Definitive Technology
Definitive Technology has been committed to building superior sounding home audio and home theater loudspeakers since 1990, when the company was founded by Sandy Gross, Don Givogue and Ed Blais—lifelong audiophiles and experts in speaker design, acoustics and marketing. Definitive Technology loudspeakers are among the most positively reviewed and most often honored high performance loudspeakers on the market as well as being the best-selling premium home loudspeakers in the US.
Since its inception, Definitive has won an astounding number of awards and over-the-top enthusiastic reviews from Consumer Electronics industry associations as well as leading audio/video print magazines and websites. Frankly there are too many to list them all here but the photo on this page gets the point across.
Most recently a speaker system consisting of Definitive Technology Mythos STS SuperTowers, Mythos Nine center and Mythos Gem surrounds was awarded Sound & Vision magazine’s “Audio Product of the Year;” not merely “Speaker of the Year” but “Audio Product of the Year.” The system also won SoundStage!.com’s 2008 Reviewer’s Choice Award for Aesthetics and Sound. Home Theater magazine called the STS system “Crisp, Lush, Focused” and tagged it with a coveted Top Pick award. The STS also took home two Innovations Design and Engineering awards at CES 2009, one for High Performance Audio and the other for Home Theater Speakers. One industry award is an honor, five is a sweep.
