SB-2000 Subwoofer Review by HomeTheaterReview

SB-2000 Subwoofer Review by HomeTheaterReview

“The SB-2000 provided plenty of power while cleanly extending the lower registers smoothly and accurately. Provided all the impact and low frequency punch even the most action-packed movie might demand. For this price and at this size I really could not find a better subwoofer. It's fast, it's clean, and it's powerful. If the SVS SB-2000 fits your budget, look no further. It's in a class of its own as far as sealed subwoofers go.”

PB-4000 Subwoofer Review by Home Theater Review

PB-4000 Subwoofer Review by Home Theater Review

"A sub with brute force that also performs so nimbly and even gently when the source material calls for it. I found myself so viscerally impressed by the PB-4000’s low-frequency output that I kept cranking up the volume to see which of us (me or the sub) would cry uncle first. In the end, I lost. SVS has another undeniable winner on its hands here—one that outperforms its predecessor while delivering improved aesthetics at a cheaper sticker price. I could not give it a heartier recommendation."

HomeTheaterReview.com Reviews the SB16-Ultra Subwoofer

"I've heard almost all of the top subwoofers currently on the market. The SB16-Ultra sounds like none of them. It's almost in a whole different category of low-frequency sound. May well be the best subwoofer ever made."

HomeTheaterReview.com Reviews the Prime Elevation

HomeTheaterReview.com Reviews the Prime Elevation

"SVS has another winner on its hands with the Prime Elevation speaker, and kudos to the company for thinking outside the box to consider the needs of those who don’t have the perfect listening space. This little guy can wear many hats…and wear them well."

"incredibly impactful yet refined…yet again, SVS has proven to be a company that defies expectations based on aesthetics and price… "

The Ultra Tower Receives HomeTheaterReview.com's Best of 2013 Award

The Ultra Tower Receives HomeTheaterReview.com's Best of 2013 Award

"Glossy, gorgeous, and powerful only begin to describe these Internet-direct speakers. With SVS's 45-day in-home trial option, those who are shopping in the $2,000-per-pair market owe it to themselves to give these towers a try."

The SB13-Ultra Subwoofer Receives HomeTheaterReview.com's Best of 2013 Award

The SB13-Ultra Subwoofer Receives HomeTheaterReview.com's Best of 2013 Award

"Dollar for dollar, the SVS SB13-Ultra is one of the best (if not THE best) subwoofers on the market. Powerful, deep bass. Equally adept performance for music and moves. The only way to make it much better is to buy two."

"The strongest statement I can make about the SVS Ultra Bookshelf speakers is that, about midway through critical listening, I started scheming for a way to buy them. Yes, they're that good"

HomeTheaterReview.com Reviews the Ultra Bookshelf

HomeTheaterReview.com Reviews the Ultra Bookshelf

"Cutting right to the chase, the Ultra Bookshelf speaker from SVS is a phenomenal achievement and arguably my favorite of the new Ultra series. The build quality is beyond reproach, as is SVS' commitment to its customers. The Ultra Bookshelf's sound is one of incredible musicality, possessing enough of the stuff audiophiles crave, but at a more Everyman price. I even found that, in certain situations, a subwoofer (SVS offers many) may not be necessary, making the Ultra Bookshelf far more versatile than most smaller two-way bookshelf speakers. While it's not perfect nor without competition, the Ultra Bookshelf should be on your must-audition list if you're in the market for a solid pair of affordable bookshelf loudspeakers."
