Prime Pinnacle Receives AVSForum's Top Choice 2019 Award

Prime Pinnacle Receives AVSForum's Top Choice 2019 Award

"Pristine, detailed sound with an enveloping soundstage that transcends the boundaries of the room and has palpable three-dimensionality. I got chills and goosebumps. No doubt Prime Pinnacle is one of the top speakers of 2019."

AVS Forum Reviews the PB-3000 Subwoofer

AVS Forum Reviews the PB-3000 Subwoofer

"So potent it almost startled me. The PB-3000 cannot only handle volume, it seems to relish the challenge. In effect, it performs better the more you crank it. This thing seems to enjoy being pushed. I never sensed the PB-3000 struggling. I beat the living you-know-what out of this thing and it never flinched. No matter the volume, no matter how punishing the source material, it shrugged off everything. Composed and powerful is a nice combination."

SB-4000 Receives AVS Forum Top Picks 2018 Award

SB-4000 Receives AVS Forum Top Picks 2018 Award

“TOTALLY pressurized my theater. With movies, I felt the power of explosions in my heart and head! Like I was getting hit with a sledgehammer in the chest! These subs also made my living room sound like a live show, which is all about feeling the music and that means you have to have killer bass. A Top Choice no doubt about it. A+.”

PC-4000 Subwoofer Receives AVSForum's Top Choice 2018 Award

PC-4000 Subwoofer Receives AVSForum's Top Choice 2018 Award

"The PC-4000 plays deep, clean, and loud without breaking a sweat. It is extremely capable of handling the most demanding movie soundtracks with foundation-cracking ability, and it reproduces music with subtlety and fine articulation. I am not only impressed, but I’m pleased to purchase these terrific performers for my reference review system."

AVS Forum Reviews the SB16-Ultra

AVS Forum Reviews the SB16-Ultra

"The ability to handle bass moments with both power and dexterity is what really impressed but the SB16-Ultra also managed to deliver incredibly low frequencies without distorting. It was a highly accomplished performance that showed how effective SVS's efforts have been in delivering a sealed subwoofer that can hold its own against ported boxes. It's was like the subwoofer equivalent of Muhammad Ali, producing the low frequency sledge hammer punch of the best ported subwoofers but with the fast footwork of the best sealed boxes. Tight, powerful, natural and fast, this subwoofer delivers on all levels."

AVS Forum Reviews the Prime Elevation Loudspeaker

AVS Forum Reviews the Prime Elevation Loudspeaker

"The Prime Elevations sound better than any reflected-sound elevation speakers I have tried. Plus, they do it at a lower price than most. They also beat the sound of in-ceiling speakers. Their performance and price make them a top choice for getting the most out of Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro-3D. The best 3D immersive audio experience you can have."

AVSForum Reviews the PB16-Ultra

"It feels like a major earthquake is occurring…You can push the driver to legitimately scary excursion levels, seemingly on the edge of what’s mechanically possible...Listening with no EQ, and there’s little motivation to do anything."

"Because the entire Prime series is timbre matched, the addition of the Prime Elevation to the lineup vastly expands the potential of the system. It’s nice to see reflected sound elevation channel option that isn’t tied to one specific immersive format."
