  • HXOS+ SoundVision (Greece) Review the SB13-Ultra Subwoofer

    "The SB13 is a subwoofer to have a good time with, a speaker that nails you to your listening room and makes you want to watch more movies, throw more parties and listen to more music. It is accurate, speedy and doesn’t spout. It brings out elements in movies that would otherwise go unnoticed. Explosions acquire intense, falls are persuasive, and music is deeper than ever. Everything sounds exciting."

  • 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 - Steve Lefkowicz Reviews the Ultra Bookshelf

    "These speakers disappeared and got out of the music's way better than any of the speakers I've tried in my system over the past several years.…the Ultra Bookshelf, on its own, is one of the very few affordably priced smallish stand-mounted speakers I wholeheartedly can recommend."
