Big thing come in small packages
I bought the svs soundbase to tell you the truth I was a little nervous it doesn’t have AirPlay and no tone control
You don’t need it
every song sounded perfect started with Elton John then shallow by lady Gaga
Then some hip hop to see if it was too much bass to my surprise not at all then I played Metallica after that played five finger death punch and finished with Alicia Keys, you could feel the piano like you were playing it yourself
It was like a heavy Weight boxer
side note if your a Apple user download firestream
The sound quality is just amazing it’s one of the best sounding amps I’ve owned
my Martin Logan and Kef speakers have never sounded so good and it’s not that I have on cheap equipment I have rotel adcom parasound and speakers craft
I will be buying a couple more

Great Unit, Few Issues
Highly recommend if you’re considering this - you won’t be disappointed. 4.5 stars.

This is perfect for my home office. Looks great on my desk and performs noticeably better than the Yamaha receiver I was using previously. I tested this with a few pairs of speakers and it drives just about anything effortlessly. My ears give out before the amp does, with no distortion or clipping at high volumes. The Bluetooth and WiFi connections were very simple and the unit connects every time I go to use it.

A few negatives. My biggest gripe is the volume control. The jump between “0” and the first “notch” is pretty loud. The next step also increases the volume significantly. I find myself turning it down while working and it going to “0”. There needs to be about 5-6 additional levels between notch 0 and 2, especially if using in low level environments (like an office, or at night). The PlayFi app isn’t great, but it does the job; I use Spotify though which works wonderfully through the Spotify app. Because there’s not a power button, the flashing lights (front, internal, and back) all the time is a bit annoying. These are small things compared to the overall build quality, size, and performance of this amazing little unit!

Sounds good and easy to use
The good stuff:

This unit gets the basics right - it sounds really good! Mine is driving a pair of SVS Prime Bookshelf which, as you would expect, are a good match for this amp. It really pushes out some volume and stays composed until it’s louder than I am ever likely to use. Excellent clean, detailed, punchy sound, I would say quite neutral so it works well with many kinds of music. If you want more bass, there is a sub connection, but I haven’t tried it yet. I like that it is a nice compact unit, plastic material, but still good quality, not flimsy at all. The streaming connection whether bluetooth or Play-fi is solid, and I found it easy to use and set up and it found my wi-fi right away even though the room where it is located is the farthest point from my router. Multiple Bluetooth devices can be paired and connect easily.

Slight downsides:

Really needs a remote or at least a remote app to allow input switching and volume control when using the Aux or optical inputs, and some EQ control would be good. I know this is supposed to be an ‘always ready’ device, but every electrical device should have a power switch, I am happy to leave it powered off until I want to use it.

DTS Play-fi app is at best ‘functional’ at least with an iPhone as the source. It probably makes more sense in a multi-room set up, but the Soundbase is the only Play-fi device I have, so I usually just use Bluetooth to avoid using the app. Seems to work best with Spotify, other services aren’t as well integrated or not supported at all (Apple Music, YouTube Music).

My rookie year.
Volume control might be better suited as a digital readout. Critical listening mode should automatically be activated instead of having to manually choose to activate. Sound and power is impressive for the limited time I have had the system. Hopefully more bonding time with my new unit only improves my opinion.

This is unbelievable. I have some older speakers and I have Never hear them sounds so great. I have been watching your happy hour on Facebook and you had some one from Qobuz so I thought I’d try it and all I can say is awesome. Thank you

Sound Purity
I was looking for a set up to match what I had heard 40 years ago. High end fidelity. I have the Prime Pinnacles, Sound Base and the SB-200 Sub Woofer. I then ordered the cables from SVS. When all is put together it is amazing. Sound quality, depth, THD. The speakers are incredible and the Base is tight and fast.
My room is 16 x 25 and this filled the room with concert sound. Tech support is outstanding. Any doubts buy this system. It cannot be matched especially for the price point. One other factor - you can do multi room wireless and it is high end. Expandable.

A great way to stream music to a REAL sound system
This is a great high quality product for streaming music to your existing mid to high end audio system. The amp is easy to set up and was shipped quickly even in the middle of the Covid-19 Pandemic. I did have some questions of their tech support which they responded to very quickly. In short, this is a great product from a great company.

No Airplay 2 no sale
It's a mystery to me why they didn't put Airplay 2 in this. Just about every receiver out here has it. Much better than bluetooth and allows multi-room and multi device. An HDMI connection would have been good too.

Can I use wired speakers, as well as wireless speakers, at the same time?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2018
  This soundbase is intended for use with wired speakers. Since this unit uses DTS:Play-Fi for streaming capability, it can be incorporated into a DTS:Play-Fi whole home audio system which can include Play-Fi enabled wireless speakers. For more information about Play-Fi, speak with a representative at 866-961-7781
150 watts, but that's for one using two eight-ohm speakers. So in reality that's about 75 watts for one using two eight-ohm speakers? Am I correct? The vast majority of speakers made today are eight-ohm. Just want to be sure. Please advise
A shopper on Dec 13, 2018
  The manufacturer specifies the amplifier at 150 watts for each channel into 8 ohms
