  • SoundstageGlobal.com - RMAF 2014: Stereo Speakers

    "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."

  • Positive Feedback Magazine - Victor Chavira Reviews the Ultra Tower

    "One evening, I invited an esteemed colleague with over thirty years of experience in audio arts. He brought a vast variety of songs on his music dedicated laptop. Each song played inspired different song or another direction and on it went for several hours into the night. Finally, towards the end he asked about the price of Ultra's and he shook his head and smiled in disbelief. "I know!" I said."

  • Home Cinema Choice - Adam Rayner Reviews the Ultra Tower Surround System

    "The bass from the quartet of 8in drivers and that weapons-grade hammer of a bass driver is wondrous. Rapid beyond belief, with astonishing grip and literally no overhang at all... But there's more than just an iron grip and lack of bass boominess - this is a whole package of loveliness... the SVS system's midband and effortless, soaring, clean and pure highs were able to entertain as well as unnerve."
