Hello all! I'm in the process of furnishing a new home and I of course prioritized my home theater/family room. Ha. I have a 54" Panasonic VT25 as my centerpiece, so I want a sound system to match.
I was pretty much set on getting the Definitive Technology Mythos STS system. Reviews from professional sources generally rave. I'm a research fanatic, however, and I came across Aperion speakers during my research. The reviews seem almost as impressive, especially given the value. So to that end, I'm hoping for some advice.
My family room (lord, I'll never know the difference between family and living room...) opens up into the kitchen (as the included photo shows). It's about 14 feet wide to 30 feet deep, including the kitchen. The family room itself is about 16 feet. I intend to have my couches (when they get here!!!) set about 8-9 feet away from my TV. The right side (if facing the TV) is all wall, while the left side has four windows.
For a room about this size, the interactive system building on Aperion suggests the 5T, 5C, 5DB, and Bravus 10D sub.
Anyone have this setup and more ideally, considered the Mythos line as well? Or have a somewhat similar room setup as well? I have to admit, the price seems right for what I'd be getting.
Currently, I'm running two HITB Onkyo left/right speakers with a mirage center channel and surrounds, powered by an Onkyo 605. I'm planning on upgrading to the Onkyo 608 or 708 (when it comes out). My guess is that I'd hear a substantial improvement going with either the Definitive Tech or Aperion, but I'd love to hear advice.
Thanks in advance!
