Mythos XTR-SSA3 ultra-slim L/C/R speaker bar
Definitive Technology answered the need for ultra-shallow high-performance loudspeakers to match the latest ultra-thin TVs with the critically acclaimed Mythos XTR Series speakers. Their slim profile, clean modern styling and sound quality equivalent to full-size speakers made the XTR series an instant hit with audio critics and home theatre enthusiasts. Now Definitive offers the three-channel XTR-SSA3 L/C/R loudspeaker.
XTR-SSA3: The Perfectly Thin L/C/R Solution
For those listeners who want to enjoy high performance sound but minimize space consumption and clutter, Definitive offers the innovative XTR-SSA3. Simply connect an SSA3 to the left, centre and right speaker outputs of any multi-channel receiver for high-performance front-stage reproduction from a single stylish, compact and convenient speaker. The left and right channel arrays of the SSA3 utilize patented SSA technology to vastly widen the stereo image to lifelike proportions. You'll enjoy a sonic image that is as wide as the wall with incredible three-dimensionality. For complete surround sound enjoyment, mate the XTR-SSA3 with matching Mythos XTR-20BP surround speakers or any of Definitive's in-wall or in-ceiling speaker solutions.
Revolutionary XTDD Technology Drivers
The secret to the SSA3's extraordinary performance is Definitive's patented XTDD technology anodized aluminium dome driver. Using state-of-the-art computer modelling and decades of speaker design experience, Definitive engineers eliminated every bit of wasted space, optimized every part and maximized the moving surface area of a dynamic driver to shrink it down to an impossibly compact dimension without giving up ultra-high performance audio fidelity! The XTDD driver has the kind of dynamic punch, wide frequency range and broad dispersion that flat vibrating membrane panel-type speakers simply cannot match.
Six active XTDD drivers are combined with three of the same hyper-definition Pure aluminium Dome Tweeter found in Definitive's award-winning state-of-the-art Mythos ST SuperTower. The total effect is the kind of clarity, dynamic range and extended response that one would expect from a premium-priced normally-sized speaker. Your friends and family will be agog with amazement when they hear the huge rich sound that comes out of the wafer-thin XTR-SSA3.
Aircraft-Grade aluminium Enclosure Saves Space and Improves Performance
Like the entire Mythos Series, the XTR-SSA models are fabricated from aircraft-grade extruded aluminium styled to perfectly match today's ultra-shallow flat panel TVs. The gloss black finish has been hand polished to a beautiful pearlescent sheen. But there's more than beauty at work, the enclosure is an integral part of the astounding performance. By specially shaping the enclosure and incorporating stiffing ribs and channels, we've made the space-efficient aluminium extrusion ultra-rigid and resonance-free. The magnets of the XTDD drivers protrude through the rear wall of the enclosure to further minimize depth. A thermally conductive gasket seals the enclosure/magnet interface and transfers heat from the driver's rare-earth magnet to the enclosure, making the whole enclosure a giant heat dissipater! And everyone knows that a cool driver is a happy, reliable driver.
Ultimate Placement Versatility
The XTR-SSA3 comes supplied with everything you need to place it wherever you want to use it—it can be mounted to either a wall or a TV bracket accessory speaker arm with the supplied wall mount bracket. For shelf-mounting in front of or below the TV, the SSA3 comes with clever adjustable feet that can raise the speaker over the TV's protruding shelf stand. It can also be placed on a shelf below the TV and angled up towards your ears via the supplied shelf supports.
