SVS Prime Wireless Speaker System Overview
In a few short years, SVS has established a reputation for speakers with superior sound, high value and design excellence. It’s no surprise the new SVS Prime Wireless Powered Speaker System puts performance paramount. The Prime Wireless system combines the convenience of over-the-air streaming and whole-house app control via DTS Play-Fi. Four powerful digital amplifiers and advanced speaker designs deliver the kind of acoustic presence that makes the entire SVS line a hit with reviewers and consumers alike. You get top-notch digital decoding of the highest resolution music files, Amazon Alexa voice control, optical and analog inputs for connection to your current equipment, a rear port and subwoofer output to shore up bass, a half-dozen front panel presets for your favorite tunes, channels, services or playlists, and direct connections with Spotify, Amazon Music, Tidal and other major music services. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth with aptX connect you to your phone or tablet, the Internet and your home network. And SVS promises the immersively musical experience that may be missing from other wireless whole-home audio systems that place convenience above performance, all at a more-than-competitive price point.

Value to spare
The Youngstown, Ohio-based SVS was founded on the proposition that an excellent, immersive audio experience doesn’t have to break your bank. The Prime Wireless system continues that tradition, with top-quality circuitry and components, superior acoustics and the cross-brand convenience of DTS Play-Fi wireless technology.
Start with the sound
The Prime Wireless system marries SVS’s 4.5-inch midrange/woofers and 1-inch tweeters – in a real stereo pair, not a pseudo-single-cabinet solution – with 200 powerful watts of digital amplification and a rear port for better bass. Each driver gets fed 50 watts, and SVS employs a full digital crossover for precise frequency control and minimal interference. It all results in a huge presentation from a pair of compact cabinets.
Controls and connections
Convenient controls on the front panel feature six easy-to-program presets, for fast access to favorite playlists, channels and sources, as well as play/pause, volume, and source selection. A status screen is built into the front panel as well. The back panel sports line-level jacks for stereo RCA or 3.5mm analog source and optical digital, as well as an output for a subwoofer, to create a full 2.1 sub-sat system that satisfies. (Of course, we recommend you start with SVS’s own offerings.)
DTS Play-Fi convenience
A multi-brand whole-home Wi-Fi-based audio ecosystem, DTS Play-Fi ties together equipment in every room of your home through a single, app-based interface (for iOS, Kindle Fire, Android, and Windows). You get easy connection to your own home network, integrated access to online music streaming services including Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, Amazon Music, SiriusXM and Tidal, ease of set-up, and control of one or all Play-Fi devices from your phone or tablet.
High-resolution music support
The SVS Prime Wireless speaker system streams and decodes music in today’s high-resolution formats, for reproduction up to four times beyond CD quality – up to 192kHz/24 bit, with a specially designed “critical listening mode” ensuring lossless streaming at the highest fidelity.
Besides Wi-Fi, you get Bluetooth with Qualcomm’s aptX and AAC coding, which is designed for high-fidelity streaming, so your phone or portable can be the key to your music collection.

Customer Reviews for SVS Prime Wireless Powered Speaker System
I purchased this set of speakers from BestBuy after my old Altec Lansing computer speakers died. I liked my old ones because I could tune the treble & bass easy. Originally I bought a pair of Bose Companion 20's thinking I had a good set. The bass was to out of control and unbalanced. I went back to BB and ordered these SVS Prime Wireless speakers, with the intention of going overkill for my computer setup.
My goodness. The first music I played through my new speakers was a lossless recording of Beethoven's 7th Symphony. As someone who is a long time classical musician and has played that particular piece of music...I felt like I back sitting in with my section in the orchestra.
The clarity of the treble is amazing, even using the limited iTunes allows for good quality sound of even low quality mp3 files that are of low bitrate. T
The mids on these speakers are warm and put out just enough umph for songs that use sparing amounts of low frequency.
Sound Verdict: For a non-audiophile, these speakers are light-years ahead of the competing products in the category of bookshelf speakers. At the quality vs price-point, you're essentially getting $1000 pair of speakers for $600. I HIGHLY recommend getting a subwoofer for these speakers...it will make them 100x better. Oh, and did I mention the styling of these speakers is great?
Note: The only reason I bought a subwoofer that wasn't an SVS, is because BestBuy could not order the corresponding SVS subwoofer(I wanted the financing option the store offered).
The sound is clean and clear, I'm super impressed with the quality and beauty of these speakers.
