Def Tech Mythos 3 center channel speaker.
Marked down to $267 from $550
So I Grabbed it. Because as any discerning listener who owns of the 9300 HTIB will learn. The speakers leave something to be desired. I had to get it home, which was 6 subway stops away...and i had to walk 10 blocks with it.
I had them wrap it in bubble wrap and 5 bags
Turned on HBO
As soon as i plugged it in my system sounded better than it had before
It sounded unbalanced.
Like the center sounded better than the rest of the speakers
So I re-ran the audyssey calibration
(then pumped up my rears and surrounds 5 db each.
Then Threw on my new "BATTLESTAR:GALACTICA" Complete series BluRay...
The center channel they give you. While being THX certified when all used in tandem, sounds like ****. Muffled no crispness to the sound
The mythos 3, it's not so much that it gas crispness...as CLARITY. Full bodied clarity. And punch. Gunshots. Whispers. All sound damn good. I think it really shines when you crank it
And this sucker can reproduce bass great
So I just wanted to say I seriously recommend replacing your center channel at least once you purchase this excellent system
I can live with the rest Of the speakers for now.
