"With effortless performance, elegant design, and striking value, SVS’ Prime Series hits the ultimate sweet spot in the audiophile segment."Digital Trends, Review.
“The SVS Prime Satellites rocked the house. They are some of the best-sounding affordable small speakers I've heard. In fact, I found myself preferring their precision to the sound coming from considerably pricier tower speakers…Simply put, the Prime Satellites performed spectacularly!”AVS Forum, Review by Mark Henninger.
“SVS has redefined value for the satellite speaker category by packing an astonishing amount of sound quality into a very small speaker cabinet, at an extremely aggressive price. The SVS Prime Satellite 5.1 home theater system is the best satellite speaker surround sound system I know for under $1,000. Congratulations, SVS. The old king is dead, long live the new king.”HomeTheaterReview.com, Review by Myron Ho.
“SVS’s Prime Satellite 5.1 system is as good as it gets for $1,000…a genuine achievement.”Sound + Vision, Review by Daniel Kumin.
“… have a surprisingly big sound… flawless in its performance…get a audiophile grade home theater system at a fraction of the cost.”AVTechReviews, Review by Chris Murray.
“For about the price of a good soundbar, SVS delivers an immersive 5.1 home theater experience from a system that includes five Prime Satellite speakers and a powerful SB-1000 subwoofer.”Prime Satellite 5.1 System Nominated for Electronic House 2015 Products of the Year.
“The primary question I had, is this a music or HT system? Turns out, it is both… high value, zero risk…Prime punches well above its weight class. I'll go so far as to say that the Prime Satellite defines its class.”Home Theater Shack, Review.
“When you listen to $100k systems all day, it’s difficult to be really excited about $1k speakers. But let me tell you, these speakers, when listening in nearfield, are some of the best I’ve heard in the budget speaker category.”TheAbsoluteSound.com, Review by Spencer Holbert.
“SVS has achieved a great balance of price, performance, aesthetics, and physical size with its Prime-series speakers… When I look at them and listen to them, I tend to forget how affordable they are. There's simply no sign of any cut corners; SVS Prime speakers exude nothing but pure competence with style to match.”AVS Forum, Review by Mark Henninger.
"At $134.99 a pop, the Prime Satellite is one of audio’s bona-fide bargains. I’ve heard speakers costing $250 each that struggle to keep up with the Satellites, as well as $135 speakers that can’t come close to the cleanness and accuracy of their sound. I’m not sure there’s a better value today in audio."GoodSound.com, Review by Kevin East.
"SVS’ Prime Towers are extraordinarily exceptional, earning them their own segment of our evaluation — they’re just that good."Digital Trends, Review.
"… have a surprisingly big sound… flawless in its performance…get a audiophile grade home theater system at a fraction of the cost."AVTechReviews, Review by Chris Murray.
"I highly recommend the SVS Prime speakers for anyone looking to break into the first true threshold of fidelity-driven sound reproduction without breaking the bank. It’s reassuring to know you have well-engineered loudspeakers that are built with quality components, from a company with unparalleled customer support and service."Audioholics, Review by Tarunvir Bains.
"…speakers that blow the whole notion of “bang for your buck” wide open."Digital Trends, Review.
"The Prime Center is a three-way design. I was happy to hear that SVS went with this design choice as it addresses the off-axis issues that are common to the two-way design short-cuts manufacturers sometimes take to keep prices down. At this price point, its refreshing to see that SVS chose to go with a three-way design."The Poor Audiophile, Review.
"The SVS Prime seems to me like a steal at its $349 price tag…The center acted beautifully in concert, as impactful (when called for) as the main speakers; part of the action when needed, or leading the action when needed."HiresAudioCentral.com, Review.
"You really have to hear these to believe how convincing they really are… I was blown away!"Geekanoids, Review.
"SVS may have done too good a job with the Primes… These speaker have a presence about them both visually and sonically that stops you in your tracks… For $249 each, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better sounding set of bookshelf speakers."AVTechReviews, Review.
"SVS Prime Bookshelf speakers are destined to become classics—that's how good they are… I found myself in awe of how transparent these speakers sounded."AVForums, Review by Mark Henninger.
"Thanks to SVS, gone are the days where you need to have a six figure audio system to be the envy of your friends and neighbors… a real price-performance achievement."The Poor Audiophile, Review.
Owner Ratings & Reviews
PRIME SPEAKERS: EXTREME PERFORMANCE AND UNCOMPROMISED FIDELITY
PRIME BOOKSHELF: WORLD-CLASS PERFORMANCE, COMPACT FORM.
Designed for two-channel purists and home theater fans alike, there simply isn’t a finer bookshelf monitor available at even twice the price. Equally adept up front in home theater or 2-channel settings, or even as a surround speaker. No matter what your listening preference, the Prime Bookshelf is the most flexible performer in the Prime speaker line. The handsome styling and high-end finishes result in a premium look that inspires pride—even before you’ve hit the power button. Matched with both the Prime and Ultra Center, Prime Satellites, and SVS subwoofers, the Prime Bookshelves can be the cornerstone or a stunning supportive element to any audio system.
In a 2-channel setting, Prime Bookshelf delivers a full and rich stand-alone audio experience with a 6.25” woofer for deep and articulate bass and a 1” aluminum dome tweeter for air presentation and unrivaled highs —true to the legacy of high-end, 2-way monitors. Stereo purists will rejoice at the amazing imaging, soundstage and fidelity delivered by the Prime Bookshelf. Whether you’re kicking back Saturday evening with a single malt and Dylan, or enjoying freshly ground coffee Sunday morning with Brubeck – the Prime Bookshelf has it covered. Learn More
PRIME SATELLITE - SATELLITES REDEFINED: HIGH-END AUDIO GETS SMALL
From the moment you feel the weight of the Prime Satellite Speaker, it becomes clear that no satellite speaker has ever offered this level of audiophile design, high-end components and precise build quality. Jets thunder through the sky. Bullets graze your ears. Prime Satellites simply outclass the tiny and tinny surround speakers designed to be more form than performer. Prime Satellites revolutionize surround speakers—in fact, they employ many of the same components as their bigger brothers in the Prime and Ultra lines. Learn More
Strategically placed, Prime Satellites create awe-inspiring realism and seamless sonic transitions from front- to-back and side-to-side. When the lights dim and the score fades in, they flood your room with dynamic audio realism and action. Painstakingly voiced and sonically matched, Prime Satellites are designed to blend with SVS towers, bookshelves, or in a system all their own for endless listening possibilities.
PRIME CENTER: CLEAR DIALOGUE. SEAMLESS SOUNDSTAGE.
A center speaker has a challenging part to play. It has to be a soloist—delivering clear and natural dialogue across a broad soundstage. A split second later, it has to fill the role of back-up band—melding with the ambiance of the environment to contribute realism in movies and music. The Prime Center delivers on both of these demands with world-class precision via its 1” aluminum dome tweeter, dedicated and independently sealed 3.5” midrange driver and dual 5.25” woofers – a true three-way design that is a rarity for center channel speakers in their price class. Voicing is neutral and natural, bringing dialogue and vocals forward just enough to be clear and intelligible. Yet, when called on to play its part in transitions—like a jet fighter soaring across the sky from left rear channel to front right—it blends in to create a smooth, realistic transition. Elegantly styled like its Prime siblings, the Center will look beautiful in any listening environment. Learn More
