These speakers have no problem getting quite loud and I have watched a couple intense blu-ray's at reference volume and they've held up well. My main complaint comes from the Mythos 10s. They work great for movies but for music...they can be hit and miss. The problem is that the cabinets resonate and they distort audibly at certain bass frequencies. You can actually feel the aluminum cabinet resonate during certain bass heavy music. This is distracting and really makes me wish I had larger speakers sometimes.

I've never noticed this issue during movies. I have just raised the crossovers on the Mythos tens to 100Hz to see if that limits the bass going to the speakers a bit more and will subdue the issue. Time will tell on that one.

But in terms of looks they have them and the sound quality it pretty darn good. I'd recommend this setup to anyone looking to integrate a home theater into a living space.

What are your room dimensions, roughly? Do you have a smartphone and Sound Pressure Level Meter App, if so can you give us a sense of what is achievable at your listening position?

Lastly, please share pics!

Thanks

McIntosh Labs! What am I listening to?

Ugh, I am wavering now. I found the Definitive Mythos ST-L ($5000 MSRP) to be another contender.

See this review (there are others with the same message)
