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."

Soundstage Praises the SB-3000 Subwoofer with a Reviewer's Choice Award

Soundstage Praises the SB-3000 Subwoofer with a Reviewer's Choice Award

“Liver-massaging ultra-low bass. I felt I was simultaneously reaping the rewards of large and small woofer cones: slam and pressure, and nimble speed. Dug deep, letting me really feel the lowest notes in my chair with impressive punch and authority. This combination of intense punch with the feel of low-frequency extension had me turning it up loud -- and it was an exhilarating experience. The bass I heard bordered on the difficult to believe -- very fast, very tight, very deep, with more than enough output to fill my 15’L x 12’W x 8’H room with sound-pressure levels that would satisfy the most demanding bass heads.”

SB-3000 Subwoofer Receives Sound&Vision's Top Picks Award

"Performance, which was characterized by extreme low-frequency extension, massive output, and precision on transients. At one point I had to check my wiring to make sure I had disconnected my other four subwoofers—it was that impressive! Even at reference levels, the SB-3000 didn't break a sweat—each bass note hit with power, precision, and speed. I was completely blown away by my experience. It has no equal at its price."

Prime Wireless Speaker System Receives Sound & Vision's Top Pick Award

Prime Wireless Speaker System Receives Sound & Vision's Top Pick Award

"An audiophile statement in both its design philosophy and sonic personality. It will impress with natural timbre mated with superb midrange and upper frequency openness and clarity. Highs were beautifully extended and utterly detailed. Even at such close range, the presentation extended beyond the speakers and was both deep and rock solid. Instruments and voices had dimensionality and were reproduced with remarkable precision from their spots within the spread; they ranged in depth from behind the speakers to sometimes well in front. Hi-fi with modern digital convenience and audiophile sound quality. All for a very affordable price."

PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives the Audioholics 2018 Product of the Year Award

PB-4000 Subwoofer Receives the Audioholics 2018 Product of the Year Award

"It is as much of a beauty as it is a brute, in that it looks and acts sophisticated but that is just a veneer that hides some truly explosive power. It exemplifies the high fidelity that has always been a hallmark of SVS subwoofers. Beauty, brains, and brawn; the PB-4000 has it all and earns our subwoofer product of the year."

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+.”

Prime Wireless Receives the AVForums Recommended Award

Prime Wireless Receives the AVForums Recommended Award

"A well-proportioned and classically handsome speaker that should look as happy in a lounge full of antique furniture as it will in a fashionable pad of modern gear. Delivers a commendably neutral and tonally honest performance and does a good job of presenting a wide and cohesive soundstage. Consistently impressive, it easily earns our recommendation."

SB-4000 Subwoofer Receives Stereoplay’s Highlight 2018 Award (Germany).

SB-4000 Subwoofer Receives Stereoplay’s Highlight 2018 Award (Germany).

"Galactic good. Blended seamlessly with multiple speakers and it showed sovereignty in all aspects. Deep bass notes were crisp and clean with no overhang. Its high dynamic reserves gave the SB-4000 a nonchalance and we never got the feeling of reaching its limits. SVS SB-4000 is one of the best subwoofer offers ever, especially considering its moderate price. It can be deep and precise, even with its monster thrust and the immense power reserves make it suitable for home theaters or audiophile systems."
