"The SVS Prime Satellite 5.1 Surround System manages to be that rare bit of home theater kit that is suitable as both a first serious home theater purchase and as a quality upgrade."High-Def Digest, Review.
"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.
"The quality and the clarity of these speakers is absolutely amazing. These speakers pull out those mids and highs really we’ll so you’re hearing everything that’s going on."GeeksLife, Review by David Foster.
"The Prime Satellites handle the high and mid-range quite well and easily outclass similarly sized and priced bookshelf speakers."The Missing Remote, Review.
"The Prime Satellite 5.1 is a surround powerhouse. Obtuse, blunt, and enveloping where it counts. The Prime Satellites perform well above their own weight, almost like an acoustic sucker punch. The SB-1000 has a looming presence thanks to a seemingly limitless low-end that’s rich in detail. Editors Choice."Popzara, Review.
Owner Ratings & Reviews
PRIME SPEAKERS: EXTREME PERFORMANCE AND UNCOMPROMISED FIDELITY
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.
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. Learn More
SB-1000 SUBWOOFER: IMPRESSIVE DEEP, CLEAN SVS-BASS IN AN INCONSPICUOUS 13" CABINET
Like a stick of dynamite, the SB-1000 is easy to conceal—but its impact hard to ignore. It’s the most SVS-bass that can be condensed into a 13” package. Pumping out loads of fast, clean, bottom end—action-scene punches hit you right in the gut. When it’s time to party, your music comes to life—bass lines are tight and drum beats never muddy. Elegantly finished in premium black ash, gloss piano black or gloss piano white, it fits with any décor. And yet, it’s small enough to tuck in a corner, if you need to keep it out of the way. To maximize the slam and impact of your home theater—with a minimal footprint—two SB-1000s can be paired—one on either side of your room. (Special discount available.) For big movie and music enjoyment, in a small package, go with the SB-1000. Learn More
