Passive Soundbar Requires Separate Surround Receiver and Subwoofer

If you are seeking a sleek virtual surround sound solution without the hassle of running speaker wires to rear surround effects speakers, but want to retain all the advanced signal processing capabilities, input switching, and power amplification offered by your existing 5.1-channel or more home theater receiver or one you are planning to purchase, you should consider one of Definitive Technology's Solo Surround Array 5-channel passive soundbars plus a separate (wireless?) powered subwoofer or two to supply the deep bass.

The Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-SSA5 Ultra-Thin Single Speaker Surround Bar pictured below (available from HiDEF Lifestyle at measures 45 inches wide, 5¼ inches high, and just 1.63 inches deep, making it one of the thinnest virtual surround sound solutions on the market today. Wire management is a breeze due to the included 5-channel connector block which eliminates the hassle of connecting individual wires to five channels with closely spaced binding posts on back of the sound bar -- as found on Def Tech's SSA-50 (try BestBuy) and SSA-42 (try BestBuy) soundbars.

It's extruded aluminum enclosure packs ten 3½-inch XTDD anodized aluminum dome mid/bass drivers and three 1-inch pure aluminum dome tweeters. A tabletop lift kit is included if you will just be sitting it on a shelf underneath your television, and a PureFlat wall mount and mounting template are included if you will be wall-mounting it beneath your wall-mounted television.
