Hi-Fi Choice Reviews the Prime Tower Loudspeaker

Hi-Fi Choice Reviews the Prime Tower Loudspeaker

"A presentation that’s finely revealing, harmonically rich and rhythmically tight. The longer I listen to the Prime Tower, the more I appreciate its ability to walk the line between resolving detail and embracing the bigger picture. It’s a sound blueprint for long-term satisfaction."

"When you listen to $100k systems all day, it’s difficult to be really excited about $1k speakers. But let me tell you, these speakers, when listening in nearfield, are some of the best I’ve heard in the budget speaker category."

Audioholics - Tarunvir Bains Reviews the Prime Tower and Prime Center Speakers

"I highly recommend the SVS Prime speakers for anyone looking to break into the first true threshold of fidelity-driven sound reproduction without breaking the bank. It’s reassuring to know you have well-engineered loudspeakers that are built with quality components, from a company with unparalleled customer support and service."

"The flagship of the Prime line (shown here next to the larger Ultra Tower) is the Prime Tower, which costs $999/pair in matte black or $1199/pair in gloss black. It's a 3.5-way design; the bottom woofer is there only to help out with the low bass. In the demo it sounded incredibly smooth and neutral, especially for a $999/pair tower. Bookshelf models are also available."

"The Prime Satellites handle the high and mid-range quite well and easily outclass similarly sized and priced bookshelf speakers."

Home Theater magazine names the SB13-Ultra subwoofer best 18 products of 2012

Home Theater magazine names the SB13-Ultra subwoofer best 18 products of 2012

"No matter how loud I played it, I couldn't get the sub to bottom out or show any signs of strain. Furthermore, my room is more than 5,000 cubic feet, and I never once felt the subwoofer running out of headroom. That's pretty damn impressive."
"Outstanding value. Powerful deep bass response. Built-in parametric EQ"
"... the SB13-Ultra is going on my short list for future upgrades to my home theater. Highly recommended."

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."

High Def Digest Reviews the Prime Bookshelf and Prime Center Loudspeakers

High Def Digest Reviews the Prime Bookshelf and Prime Center Loudspeakers

"A marvel of sound design. These loudspeakers uncoil the sound, and reach well above their price point dynamically. Easy recommendations for the aspiring but sensible home theater speaker enthusiast."

High Def Digest Reviews the Prime Elevation Loudspeaker

"With the Prime Elevation speakers installed, I have grown to appreciate Dolby Surround and DTS:Neural:X up-mixing. I prefer the direct output to ceiling bounce. An impressive speaker and a ready-made upgrade for the vast majority of home theaters and anyone who wants to take advantage of the latest audio surround formats."
