  • LA Audio File - Kevin Nakano Reviews the Ultra Tower

    "The SVS Ultra Towers are certainly one of the best sounding speakers we have heard in the sub-$2000 (per pair) category. The ability to reproduce subtle details, provide a wide soundstage with excellent and seamless bass reproduction make this a highly attractive loudspeaker."

  • 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."

  • TheDroidGuy Honors SVS Ultra Tower as "Best High-End" Floorstanding Speaker

    "The SVS Ultra Tower floorstanding speakers are considered by many to be the best floorstanding speakers with a three-figure price. They deliver deep and highly accurate bass with best-in-class sensitivity for natural representation of human voice. A great harmonic balance is achieved with the intelligent SVS SoundMatch 3.5-way crossover, which creates an expansive, yet focused and precise soundstage."

  • AV Nirvana Reviews the Prime Tower Loudspeaker

    "Frequency response extends from 30 Hz to 25 kHz. Low distortion and superb off-axis frequency response ensure clean delivery, a wonderful soundstage and lifelike imaging. Through the Prime Towers, I bear witness to a new paradigm of speaker design in which the old rules and limits of cost/performance/flexibility are shattered, and the bar is raised for others to follow and compete with."

  • The Missing Remote Reviews Prime Tower and Prime Tower 5.0 System

    "Not only do they present outstanding center imaging and an unwillingness to compromise either punch or clarity, they also subtly seduce listeners to keep turning up the volume. With each notch on the dial even sweeter than the last, the only limits I found were with my ears and marital tolerance; mostly the latter."
