Customer Reviews for SVS Prime Pinnacle Floorstanding Speaker - Each
So, I decided to upgrade this year,and while researching for recommendations, I came across Prime Pinnacles! I read all the rave reviews in many articles and watched Youtube too! Then, I said to myself" Oh hell, It's Christmas" So, I ordered the pinnacles last week.. Fast delivery!
Set up was so easy, I toed the speakers in a little bit, according to instructions. I am using Emotiva audio XPR-2 power amplifier(now discontinued). It is a wonderful beast !!! 600 solid watts into 8 ohms each channel or 1000 watts into 4 ohms into each channel !!!!!
I loaded up a disc called "Denson DeMagic" frequency sweeper and demagnatizer for the whole system.
Then I started playing variety of music genres such as jazz,blues,electronic,classical .., using my Marantz CD player..
I wasn't bowled over initially about the sound that I was hearingat first, because I was so used to the sound of my Polks for the last 10 years!! So, I played music for 10 hours a day for 6 days ..
Then, I decided I would give these Pinnacles some serious listening time... Since I am a little biased in system setups, because it is my serious hobby, I thought my wife would be a very good neutral judge and be honest about her opinion on these new speakers.
I let her sit down in the sweet spot(middle of the couch) and played her some tracks she is very familiar with! Music of Vanessa Fernandez, Hugh Masekela,Boris Blank(member of electronic band Yello) Freddie Hubbard, and many others...
In the middle of listening to a track,she would exclaim, saying " WOW, I don't remember hearing those tiny details before, it is like listening to a total new disc" !!! With every recording it was like we were listening to new music again...
I was almost stunned to hear little details fleshing out of these very familiar tracks! It was unbelievable !!
Here are some comments during her observation "More detailed,better imaging,crystal clear voices,tight bass & soundstage" and she is also happy about the sleek look and the smaller footprint of these...
I am very thrilled to have these and I feel like a kid all over again playing with a favorite toy !!!
I spend my time listening to a lot of music of various genres... When I play the track called "TIME FREEZE" by Yello or Hugh Masekela with his trumpet, singing "LANGUTA", these Pinnacles come to life,and if I close my eyes,I feel like these musicians are right in the middle of my living room !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is unreal what these $1600.00 speakers can do!
My kudos to the entire SVS team for making such a great product for such a low price !!! BRAVO indeed !! SVS president Gary Yacoubian, must be a very generous man who likes to please audiophiles by offering such a solid performer for under $1600.00
I can imagine how well these will perform by adding a pair of SVS subwoofers !! Oh well, it is only a dream for now !!!!
