SVS Earns EISA 2020 Best Loudspeaker & Best Subwoofer Awards

SVS Earns EISA 2020 Best Loudspeaker & Best Subwoofer Awards

Once a year, a group of 55 AV magazines from around the world, including Stereophile and Sound & Vision in the U.S., vote on the best products from a variety of different categories. The group is known as the Expert Imaging & Sound Association (EISA) and the awards they give out are regarded as the most prestigious honor any AV product can receive. For the first time ever, a single brand won two of the world’s premier audio awards in the same year, EISA’s Best Loudspeaker and Best Subwoofer after the SVS Prime Pinnacle tower speaker and SB-2000 Pro subwoofer were proclaimed winners this week.

On top of that, 2020 marks the fourth year in a row SVS has been honored with the Best Subwoofer award, following the PB16-Ultra, SB-4000, and SB-3000, also a record. The fact that both the SB-2000 Pro subwoofer and Prime Pinnacle tower speaker earned these awards against much more expensive competition makes it even sweeter.

Needless to say, the entire SVS team is incredibly honored to receive this unprecedented endorsement from the top reviewers and thought leaders in the audio industry. Our engineers especially are thrilled to be recognized for making world-class audio products that more of humanity can enjoy.

Below are the official proclamations from EISA.

EISA Award: Best Loudspeaker

Prime Pinnacle

“Sitting at the top of the SVS Prime range, this classically-styled floorstanding speaker model is of simple design and construction, yet delivers a clear, crowd-pleasing performance – not least due to its trio of 16.5cm bass drivers and rear-facing ports. The woofers are drawn from the company’s flagship Ultra Tower speaker model, and ensures music driven by bass and percussion is always thrilling, just as the midband and treble are crisp and sweet. In practice the Prime Pinnacles are svelte enough to slip into all but the smallest rooms, so if you crave a warm and a full-bodied sound, these towers will have your system glowing.”

“Seismic bass with serious depth. Effects are clean and free of distortion with performance that’s tight and nuanced. Highly recommended.” -AV Forums

“Ridiculously impressive -- very fast, very tight, and very deep, with enough output to fill my room.” -Soundstage (EISA Member)

EISA Award: Best Subwoofer

SB-2000 Pro

“SVS has taken innovations from its larger, pricier models and built them into this new compact subwoofer. Offering a high level of performance at an affordable price, the SB-2000 Pro partners its custom 12-in bass driver with a 500W ‘Sledge DSP’ amplifier and becomes the entry-point for SVS’s app-based parametric EQ and control system. And while the sealed cabinet may be ‘small’, its performance is anything but – this is a polished performer that unearths both the nuance and scale of movie soundmixes, delivering dramatic, deep bass while simultaneously remaining controlled and speedy.”
