Home Theater Shack Reviews the SB16-Ultra

Home Theater Shack Reviews the SB16-Ultra

"SVS has outdone themselves. This is a 'move the bar' type of product. It does everything exceptionally well, never revealing a single weakness. The 16-Ultra subwoofers expertly blends precision and power into one cohesive package, remaining composed at all times. Makes everything sound good."

Home Theater Shack reviews the PB-13 Ultra Subwoofer

Home Theater Shack reviews the PB-13 Ultra Subwoofer

"...the PB13 will challenge you to find a single weakness... It reached the deepest notes with ease, and was very crisp and clear the whole time, without getting muddy or boomy. Did I mention it was smooth? It was oh so smooth."

Home Theater Shack reviews the SB-13 Ultra Subwoofer

Home Theater Shack reviews the SB-13 Ultra Subwoofer

"It is not just the aesthetics. It is not just the power. It is not just the precision and it is not just the level of detail that can be heard in the VLF range. It is all of these things combined that make the SB13 Ultra my Sub Zone Reviewer's Choice. There is simply no better performing subwoofer in its class."
"It is not only a gorgeous piece of hardware but it performs like no other sub I have ever heard."
"Knowing that there is a subwoofer that can reproduce incredibly dynamic bass with as much clarity, precision and 'Refined Brutality' for less than $2K ($1599 with free shipping to be exact) is a testament to the commitment of the SVS team and they should be applauded for it."

The Legato Subwoofer is marveled at by Home Theater Shack

The Legato Subwoofer is marveled at by Home Theater Shack

"SVS has delivered a unique system in Legato - they've given home theater and music lovers the chance to purchase a dual subwoofer system and locate them flexibly with a central DSP amplifier."
"... it was a marvel of engineering that so much performance could be had with so little floor space sacrificed."
"SVS as usual, has put a lot of thought and care into designing the Legato subwoofer system. It offers a degree of flexibility and out of the box functionality rarely matched in today's Internet Direct and commercial subwoofer offerings."

Home Theater Shack Loves the SB13-Plus Subwoofer

Home Theater Shack Loves the SB13-Plus Subwoofer

"The beautiful looks, the metal grill, the single knob control, the multiple hook-ups, the Sledge™ amp with digital signal processing, make for a killer package."
"This new SB-13 Plus subwoofer is certainly one of the great deals in today's home audio market."
"If you want to save yourself lots of hassles, and money, believe those of us who have heard this sub. This is the one to put on the top of your “A” list., I didn't put it “one” on my list because I purchased two of them!"

Enthusiast forums in the US have been just effusive of the newest SB12-NSD's. Home Theater Shack has long been a hotbed of SVS advice and fans but few know our products better than Dennis Doan.

"This small sub is truly a giant killer."
"... incredible definition."
"...this little bugger will hold its own right to the level of wall destruction."

Home Theater Shack Reviews the SB-1000 and PB-1000 Subwoofers

SB-1000
"I found myself falling for this dinky overachiever...the SVS SB1000 is amazing for its size. When you look at this thing you almost can't help but laugh and think "That's a subwoofer?" Put in a blu-ray with a pounding soundtrack though and the laughter will stop, because it's probably going to leave you amazed."
PB-1000
"The PB1000 handled its sweeps down to "feel it" level... the bass was potent and rich...and had a very clean presentation to boot. I could actually feel it in my chest...with powerful depth and impact."

Home Theater Shack Reviews the Prime Satellite 5.1 System

Home Theater Shack Reviews the Prime Satellite 5.1 System

"The primary question I had, is this a music or HT system? Turns out, it is both… high value, zero risk…Prime punches well above its weight class. I'll go so far as to say that the Prime Satellite defines its class."

Home Theater Shack Reviews the Prime Tower

Home Theater Shack Reviews the Prime Tower

"…sounded much bigger than their size, and projected quite an engaging soundstage…should be considered by anyone with $1000 to spend on a pair of speakers."
