Hi Folks,
I'm trying to chose between two sets of speakers for my high traffic family room. Listening will be 90% TV/HT & 10% Music. The room is a "great room" setup so it's pretty big (20x40). Rear speakers are in ceiling polks, sub is a Klipsch 12". I'm trying to balance WAF vs performance vs price. Which of the below setups would you think I should lean towards? I'm all for the performance of the NHT's but the Def Techs look so good. All advice is appreciated!

Setup 1 - 2 Mythos One's for the L/R and a Mythos 3 for center. Total cost: $1100 (these will be gently used for less than one year)

Setup 2 - 2 NHT Classic Four for the L/R - Cost $1100 I will have to buy a Classic 3 center for another $450 to complete this setup. Total cost: $1550 (All these will be new in box)

I like good looking towers. If you can point me in the direction of any other speakers that will give me as good or better sound for a better price than the above feel free.
Cheers!

I can't find any reviews on the Mythos One's. Does anyone know if these will stand up to the NHT Classics?

FWIW, here are the same set of objective measurements of the Fours and Threes as compared to the Mythos STs:
