Press Reviews

  • HiFiRoom.cz (Czech Republic) Reviews the Prime Pinnacle

    “Frequency response is balanced and accurate with solid bass starting with the deepest octaves, but it should be emphasized that the midrange band and pure natural highs are equally represented. Space is rendered three-dimensionally, and the sound image retains precise contours even at higher volumes. Dynamics are excellent, but they do not “over-play”, which is appreciated by fans of classical music and those who are truly discerning.”

  • HFC.com (Poland) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    "Massive deep bass with pinpoint control. In both multi-channel and stereo music, the SB-3000 showed that, in addition to the inexhaustible energy and range to the lowest parts in the bass, it is excellent at showing the variety of timbre colors, which should be especially appreciated by music lovers who intend to weigh the sound of their stereo system in the lowest components bandwidth."

  • EnjoytheMusic Reviews the Prime Pinnacle

    "Offer a sense of refinement and harmonic complexity with amazing scale, rhythm, dynamics and real low end extension. Bass is clear, tight, deep and downright wondrous. The combination puts the Prime Pinnacles in a class by themselves." Read Full Review
  • TONE Audio Reviews the PC-4000 Subwoofer

    "Digs down deep. In a larger room, it was easy to achieve near concert hall levels, and we could not drive the PC-4000 to clipping or exceed the woofers excursion levels. Excellent upper bass response, with low coloration, making it easy to mate with a wide range of main speakers. If you need bass, and floor space is at a premium, the SVS PC-4000 is the way to go."

  • Prime Pinnacle Receives HomeTheaterReview's "Best of 2019" Award

    "Equally at ease with music as well as movie soundtracks, the SVS Prime Pinnacles are winning over fans and fast, and that includes Greg Handy, who said in this review: "If you are in the market for a new pair of speakers, and you simply do not have the placement flexibility required to get the most out of so many other speakers, I highly suggest taking SVS up on their 45-day, risk-free audition offer. Be warned, however, that I suspect 99 percent of you who do so won't be sending them back."

  • AV Forums (UK) Editors Choice Award Given to the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    “It’s remarkable how deep and powerful the SB-3000 is considering its relatively small cabinet. However, it never loses its sense of timing and precision, delivering pin-point accuracy and plenty of speed. It retains a refinement and musicality that is genuinely excellent but still delivers seismic levels of low frequency energy.”

  • SB-3000 Receives Positive Feedback "Writers Choice" Award

    "These subs allowed me to discover low frequency information that let me appreciate most compositions in a different way. Because the foundation became more accurate, pronounced, and coherent, the music just made more sense. The SVS subs enhanced my system in terms of soundstage, dynamics, and they didn't get in the way. On the contrary, once properly set up they enabled the system to play cleaner and seemed to take some of the burden off the main amplifier/speaker chain. The SVS SB-3000 is the most cost-effective way I know of to transform your restricted lower frequency monitors or floorstanders into a full-range system without sacrificing any quality."

  • Audioholics Reviews the Prime Wireless 2.1 Powered Speaker System

    "The clarity, precision, and dynamic range is in a whole different league. Besides this, the SVS Prime Wireless system is one that will grow with you and change to match your needs. The sheer volume of different ways in which this system can be used dwarfs other Bluetooth and wireless offerings I’ve seen, and the soundstage they create is clear and precise. Somehow, SVS has found a way to make these speakers small and unassuming so that will blend into the space in which you place them, yet grand and eloquent enough to be admired as a piece of high-quality furniture. Incredibly realistic mids and highs, and with the inclusion of the separate SB-1000 subwoofer, made for a full range system to satisfy any critical audiophile wanting a lifestyle solution."

  • Prime Pinnacle Receives the SoundStage Reviewers Choice Award

    "Effortless dynamics…wonderfully articulate in their ability to convey detail while maintaining a full-bodied sound that should envelop listeners in even large rooms. I’m not sure I’ve heard another pair of speakers costing less than $2000 that could produce as much clean, clear bass in my room as these did. Until now, I wasn’t sure it was even possible. This speaker is ridiculously good. Its sound indicates a company that knows how to deploy stellar engineering in the execution of sound design principles, while keeping sticker prices low enough that regular folks can aspire to own their products. The SVS Prime Pinnacle is an important reminder that no one needs to spend a small fortune to achieve great sound. Bravo, SVS."

  • The SB-3000 Subwoofer Receives Sterophile's Editor's Choice Award

    "The sub-$1000 SB-3000 wins because it incorporates the technology of SVS's flagship SB16-Ultra, is user-friendly, produces highly musical, pitch-perfect, floor-shaking bass, and offers wireless connectivity and total smartphone control from my listening room seat."
  • AVOnline (Hungary) Reviews the Prime Pinnacle Loudspeaker

    "Conjured up a huge soundstage with a realistic panorama of 3D low frequency sound. Even with familiar recordings we felt details that were not coming from the speakers, but rather felt like they were dancing in space in front of us. Produced infinitely natural sound with detail resolution that revealed the humanity in recordings more than any speaker in this price range. Whether, rock, jazz, symphonic or heavy metal, the Prime Pinnacle is always up to speed."

  • SalonAV (Russia) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    “Bass from the SB-3000 comes across with a natural attack and without extraneous overtones. With action movies, it demonstrated the rate of fire in the literal sense of the word - the rumble of tank guns, howitzers volleys, machine-gun and machine-gun fire, numerous explosions ... I could not even believe that such a compact bass machine could hit so hard on the ears. Everything sounded apart in completely different tones, although in almost the same frequency range, with a minimum of conventions. After some time, you forget that there is a subwoofer in the system, so organically it fits into the soundstage. When there are no inharmoniously prominent elements in the sound picture, the emotional impact is extremely strong. And this, in my opinion, is the main difference between the SB-3000 and other models on the market.”

  • Positive Feedback Reviews the Prime Wireless 2.1 System

    "Command a neutral tonality with great levels of balance and clarity. Good response with taut and punchy bass that extends low into sub-bass territories. Delivers spades of air and separation, filling the room with a sound that handles complex tracks and instrumentals with ease. There was no positional sweet spot, but rather the field of sound was wide and enjoyable from a variety of angles. Coupled with the powerful SB-1000 subwoofer, the system turns into an amazing orchestra of sound, with deep lows, beautifully wide and rich midrange, and extensive treble."

  • Popzara Reviews the Prime Wireless Speaker System

    "Exactly what you demand from an unbound speaker system that costs a lot more money, except here you don’t have to reach into a higher price bracket. From its extremely good build quality and design to excellent sound quality backed by a reputable company, SVS has crafted something to corner all facets for discerning music lovers."

  • Stereophile Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    The SB-3000's pitch-perfect room-pressurizing bass, small size, low weight, rugged construction, and reliable smartphone app make it an outstanding choice. I was unprepared for the fun I had reviewing this subwoofer. Coupled with both the ESL-989s and LS50s, twin SB-3000s delivered solid bass down to 16Hz in my small listening room—I still don't quite believe it—without bloat or overload. New lows in reference subwoofer performance, indeed!

  • Dtown Reviews the PB16-Ultra Subwoofer

    "This subwoofer kept surprising me again and again, he just didn't give in, he was present, contained and accurate. What makes him so good is the fact that his bass is so true, so accurate and fast, with excellent impact capabilities. He knows to be polite and strong, the Ultra 16 does not just come to show a large amount of boomy bass. That’s not the name of the game, but it knows how to play correctly with precision and impressive sound quality. These capabilities are very difficult to get from any other subwoofer."

If your choosing between this kind of speaker and a soundbar, the SVS Prime Wireless Speakers are better than any I’ve heard. They deliver exceptionally high volume levels and great bass. Frequency response was excellent from top to middle and down. In the end, the sound and connectivity experience was quite comprehensive."

  • AVReport.ru Reviews the SB-4000 Subwoofer (Russia)

    "Brutal, but beautiful in its own way. Deep, smooth and superbly fast bass. Potent, clear and energetic with movies and pristinely natural with music. Output from the SB-4000 is so seamlessly and inconspicuously stitched with the voices of speakers it provides a clear transfer of details and an accurate attack. A rare quality for a subwoofer."

  • Prime Pinnacle Loudspeaker Reviewed by Home Theater Review

    "The SVS Prime Pinnacles astounded me with their tight bottom end, impressive midrange, and holographic imaging capabilities, and more so with their impressive placement flexibility. I never felt the need for a separate subwoofer. Their well-controlled bass and three-dimensional midrange and treble resulted in a sound that was both authoritative and detailed."
