  • Sound & Vision Reviews the Prime Pinnacle Speaker

    "Low-end prodigies. Accurate and dynamic sound. Excellent imaging depth of field. With the Prime Pinnacle, SVS not for the first time draws a line in the sand on the Value/ Performance Beach and challenges all comers. I can recommend the company's new speakers, unreservedly."

  • 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."
  • Alan D. Reviews the Prime Satellite

    "It’s amazing the clear, solid high plume if sound these tiny speakers produce!"

  • The Digital Cinema Reviews the Prime Elevation Loudspeaker

    “Dialog was remarkably clear with crisp highs and excellent clarity. Separation was nice, wide and clean. Presence was much fuller than I expected. SVS has created an extremely versatile design that not only performs great from multiple angles but also for multiple channels. Mounting was simple and quick. These are truly all-purpose speakers for today’s home theater set-ups. Delivers what it promises – in abundance!”

    “They’re versatile, easy to integrate with other speakers, and can help solve placement issues in all sorts of rooms. Eerily realistic. Threw out a large soundstage with greater punchiness. Atmos content displayed an altogether new level of realism. An easy recommendation.”

  • Connect (Germany) Reviews the Prime Wireless SoundBase

    “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.”
  • Connect (Germany) Reviews the Prime Wireless Speaker System

    “With a passive loudspeaker , such a deep and precise bass from such a small case would be unimaginable. The attack and cleanliness from the compact cabinets impressed as well as their high resolution. Sound and flexibility are convincing across the board.”

  • ResTechToday Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    “The SB-3000 made me feel like the first time I saw true HD content after watching 4:3 my whole life. Just as Tidal music streaming is a rejection of compressed audio, SVS brings the rejection of “good enough” to the family room for an incredibly reasonable price. I can’t believe it produces the amount of low end it does in a 15-inch square cabinet. Long live SVS and their amazing subwoofers!”
  • 4000 Series Subwoofers Receive HCReview's Reference Award (French)

    "Delivers linear bass with impressive pressure levels, while managing to maintain extremely low distortion rates. Visceral, agile and powerful performance. A nice tour de force!"
  • SalonAV (Russia) Reviews the Prime Pinnacle Loudspeaker

    “Prime Pinnacle are real flagship speakers capable of outstanding playback of music and for energizing a small cinema. Recoil and transient speed are fast, with a sharp attack and, importantly, no noticeable overtones. The tweeter is airy with a luxurious sound and it blends seamlessly with the midrange, which provides a large and precise soundstage.”

  • Enjoy the Music Reviews the SB16-Ultra Subwoofer

    “Setting up the SVS subs was easy and fun. I could feel the sub-sonic tones on the surface of my exposed skin, but I could swear I could feel my loose shirt sleeves vibrating against my arms. For those who desire more than a full-frequency range high-end system, spending more than the SVS's very reasonable price makes no sense. Highly recommended.”

  • Stereonet (Australia) Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    “Clean and effortless sound. Performance was not only tuneful but tactile, with instruments not only heard but felt. If you're looking for couch-rumbling bass, that is still fast and tuneful, I strongly encourage you to look at an SB-3000 (or two). I wouldn't be surprised if your auditioning of subwoofers starts and ends with the SB-3000.”

  • AVForums Reviews the SB-3000 Subwoofer

    “It’s remarkable how deep and powerful the SB-3000 is considering its relatively small cabinet. However, it never loses its sense of timing and precision, delivering pin-point accuracy and plenty of speed. It retains a refinement and musicality that is genuinely excellent but still delivers seismic levels of low frequency energy.”

  • Soundstage Praises the SB-3000 Subwoofer with a Reviewer's Choice Award

    “Liver-massaging ultra-low bass. I felt I was simultaneously reaping the rewards of large and small woofer cones: slam and pressure, and nimble speed. Dug deep, letting me really feel the lowest notes in my chair with impressive punch and authority. This combination of intense punch with the feel of low-frequency extension had me turning it up loud -- and it was an exhilarating experience. The bass I heard bordered on the difficult to believe -- very fast, very tight, very deep, with more than enough output to fill my 15’L x 12’W x 8’H room with sound-pressure levels that would satisfy the most demanding bass heads.” Read Full Review
  • SVS SB-3000 Subwoofer Reviewed by HomeTheaterReview.com

    “A seriously sophisticated audio device, one that can render subtle differences in bass inflection, but with the capacity to slam hard. The power of the sub comes on fast, in a violent way. I could feel the output through my chair, but it wasn't overbearing or exaggerated. Intense, with purpose and authority, is the way I would describe it. Blended beautifully with the front two channels while imparting solid bass reinforcement throughout the room. A remarkable performer. If you're looking for state-of-the-art, high performing subwoofer, with small proportions; the SVS SB-3000 is worth every penny and more.”

  • HiFi Trends Reviews the Prime Wireless Speaker System

    "These speakers played so big that for a minute I thought I had a pair of tower speakers. Imaging was rock solid, wide soundstage, bass was weighty, everything was in its place. This package gives you a ton for your money. If you are looking for a budget-friendly all in one hi-fi system, you need to check these out. Highly Recommended!"
