  • Prime Pinnacle Receives the SoundStage Reviewers Choice Award

    "Effortless dynamics…wonderfully articulate in their ability to convey detail while maintaining a full-bodied sound that should envelop listeners in even large rooms. I’m not sure I’ve heard another pair of speakers costing less than $2000 that could produce as much clean, clear bass in my room as these did. Until now, I wasn’t sure it was even possible. This speaker is ridiculously good. Its sound indicates a company that knows how to deploy stellar engineering in the execution of sound design principles, while keeping sticker prices low enough that regular folks can aspire to own their products. The SVS Prime Pinnacle is an important reminder that no one needs to spend a small fortune to achieve great sound. Bravo, SVS."

  • The SB-3000 Subwoofer Receives Sterophile's Editor's Choice Award

    "The sub-$1000 SB-3000 wins because it incorporates the technology of SVS's flagship SB16-Ultra, is user-friendly, produces highly musical, pitch-perfect, floor-shaking bass, and offers wireless connectivity and total smartphone control from my listening room seat."
  • AVOnline (Hungary) Reviews the Prime Pinnacle Loudspeaker

    "Conjured up a huge soundstage with a realistic panorama of 3D low frequency sound. Even with familiar recordings we felt details that were not coming from the speakers, but rather felt like they were dancing in space in front of us. Produced infinitely natural sound with detail resolution that revealed the humanity in recordings more than any speaker in this price range. Whether, rock, jazz, symphonic or heavy metal, the Prime Pinnacle is always up to speed."

  • SalonAV (Russia) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    “Bass from the SB-3000 comes across with a natural attack and without extraneous overtones. With action movies, it demonstrated the rate of fire in the literal sense of the word - the rumble of tank guns, howitzers volleys, machine-gun and machine-gun fire, numerous explosions ... I could not even believe that such a compact bass machine could hit so hard on the ears. Everything sounded apart in completely different tones, although in almost the same frequency range, with a minimum of conventions. After some time, you forget that there is a subwoofer in the system, so organically it fits into the soundstage. When there are no inharmoniously prominent elements in the sound picture, the emotional impact is extremely strong. And this, in my opinion, is the main difference between the SB-3000 and other models on the market.”

  • Positive Feedback Reviews the Prime Wireless 2.1 System

    "Command a neutral tonality with great levels of balance and clarity. Good response with taut and punchy bass that extends low into sub-bass territories. Delivers spades of air and separation, filling the room with a sound that handles complex tracks and instrumentals with ease. There was no positional sweet spot, but rather the field of sound was wide and enjoyable from a variety of angles. Coupled with the powerful SB-1000 subwoofer, the system turns into an amazing orchestra of sound, with deep lows, beautifully wide and rich midrange, and extensive treble."

    "Exactly what you demand from an unbound speaker system that costs a lot more money, except here you don’t have to reach into a higher price bracket. From its extremely good build quality and design to excellent sound quality backed by a reputable company, SVS has crafted something to corner all facets for discerning music lovers."

  • Stereophile Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    The SB-3000's pitch-perfect room-pressurizing bass, small size, low weight, rugged construction, and reliable smartphone app make it an outstanding choice. I was unprepared for the fun I had reviewing this subwoofer. Coupled with both the ESL-989s and LS50s, twin SB-3000s delivered solid bass down to 16Hz in my small listening room—I still don't quite believe it—without bloat or overload. New lows in reference subwoofer performance, indeed!

  • Dtown Reviews the PB16-Ultra Subwoofer

    "This subwoofer kept surprising me again and again, he just didn't give in, he was present, contained and accurate. What makes him so good is the fact that his bass is so true, so accurate and fast, with excellent impact capabilities. He knows to be polite and strong, the Ultra 16 does not just come to show a large amount of boomy bass. That’s not the name of the game, but it knows how to play correctly with precision and impressive sound quality. These capabilities are very difficult to get from any other subwoofer."

  • AVReport.ru Reviews the SB-4000 Subwoofer (Russia)

    "Brutal, but beautiful in its own way. Deep, smooth and superbly fast bass. Potent, clear and energetic with movies and pristinely natural with music. Output from the SB-4000 is so seamlessly and inconspicuously stitched with the voices of speakers it provides a clear transfer of details and an accurate attack. A rare quality for a subwoofer."

  • SVS PB-3000 Subwoofer Receives Soundstage Access's Reviewer's Choice Award

    "The PB-3000 proved so capable of massive output with very-low-frequency effects from this blockbuster that it could move my room with apparent ease. Once you hear a sonic blast out of this sub, you’ll understand that when its amp sends 2500W of peak power to its woofer cone, all of that juice is transformed into clean, room-shaking, low-frequency soundwaves. It reaches musical and cinematic depths with ease and grace, and its app provides a multitude of options for shaping the sound to suit both it and your listening space. The PB-3000 is the first subwoofer that I can describe as being fun to use. It’s a snap to install, delivers the goods with rumbling authority, and can be modified to suit your needs and tastes in real time, from the comfort and convenience of your listening and/or viewing chair. The future of subwoofing is here, and it’s the SVS PB-3000."

  • Positive Feedback Reviews Dual SB-3000 Subwoofers

    "Changed my expectation of what can be accomplished in a $1K subwoofer and was the perfect complement to my system. Once you hear the expanded soundstage, and all the weight, punch, and rich textures missing from the music, you'll never want to go back. The SB-3000 is diminutive in size, with the heart of a lion. An ideal solution for reference bass in audiophile music system. Highly recommended."

  • SB-3000 Subwoofer Receives the EISA Best Product Award for Home Theater Subwoofers

    "For its SB-3000 subwoofer, SVS takes the performance-first ethos of its higher-end models and brings it to a new, lower price point. Featuring a freshly designed 13.5in driver in a compact, sealed cabinet, allied to an 800W Sledge DSP amplifier, this dedicated bass-maker excels when it comes to depth, speed, control and slam. Movie soundtracks hit hard, while music playback benefits from nuanced, tight bass. It’s a tweaker’s delight too, with SVS’s Bluetooth control app offering parametric EQ to match its performance to your listening room, in addition to quick adjustments of level, and sound preset selection. For those seeking a sub offering both power and precision, the SB-3000 is difficult to resist."

    “The versatile small amplifier builds a bridge to the new wireless world for owners of the previous passive SVS boxes. With its small dimensions, excellent workmanship and not least its very harmonious sound, it is virtually out of competition in its price range.”
