AVOnline (Hungary) Reviews the Prime Pinnacle Loudspeaker

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

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

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."

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

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."

Tech.Walla Reviews the Prime Wireless Speaker System (Israel)

"Great design and excellent build quality make them feel like a premium product, even with a low price tag. 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."
