  • MusicCritic Awards the Prime Bookshelf Loudspeaker "Best Bookshelf Speakers Under $1,000"

    "The high end manufacturing maintains optimal on and off axis response. They sound pristine and are priced in the middle of today’s price range making them fantastic value. Bass is ample as standalone, they make an awesome foundation for any surround system set-up and serve up world class performance."

  • Widescreen Review, Ultra Tower Surround System

    "While I enjoyed the performance of the Ultra system, I’m having a hard time grappling with how a $3700 loudspeaker system (not including subwoofer) could compete with another recent system with a retail price closer to $30,000. When I say compete, I mean by making it difficult to choose which loudspeakers you’d rather listen to for the next 5 or 10 years if price was no concern. There is an incredible psychological barrier to break down when you know one system is $30k or over while the other system you might consider is less than $4000. I can’t say if the Ultra system is worse, better, or equal-but-different compared to that hypothetical $30,000 system. But whatever the Ultra system is, it is not wildly outclassed by loudspeakers costing a lot more. Hearing the Ultra system really makes you question whether it is necessary to spend more, even if you could."
