I have become wishy washy on the components for my new home theater. First, I had a sound company create a B&W setup. Unfortunately, they did not tell me the price until AFTER several meetings: $21,000! Way out of my range. I want to stick closer to $4000 - $8000. It is important for me to have excellent quality. This is where you come in. I need your opinions on making the right choice. Here are two that I have considered, but I am not limited to, so far:
Definitive Technology Mythos STS Super Tower System
2 STS speakers - At the top of each Mythos STS speaker are two 4-1/2" midranges flanking a 1" dome tweeter in an acoustically isolated enclosure. Each midrange features Definitive's Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) technology. This design places a rubber surround on both the outer and inner edges of the speaker cone, which gives the woofer greater and more precise movement for exceptional clarity. The pure aluminum dome tweeter has a special ceramic coating, so you'll hear loads of sonic detail without the edginess of lesser tweeters.
