Praise for SVS Prime Wireless Pro
Even before the speakers came out on the market they received many awards and fine recommendations. In the 2022 CEDIA Expo, Whathifi.com gave them the Best of Show award. EISA awarded them with Best Value Wireless Loudspeakers 2022-2023:
Blending the advantages of active loudspeaker design with multiple streaming options at an affordable price point, SVS’s Prime Wireless Pro Powered Speakers are a brilliant addition to the American marque’s catalogue – and your listening room. The two-way enclosures, driven by built-in 2x100W amplification, are bookshelf-sized but produce a large, powerful, room-filling sound. A subwoofer output allows for optional upgrading; the EISA Award-winning SVS 3000 Micro being a logical option. Integration with the hi-res-capable DTS Play-Fi platform opens up a world of sources, and SVS hasn’t economised on physical inputs either, including digital optical, analogue line-level, and HDMI ARC. This is an all-round package that will delight music lovers.
