    SVS Prime Tower Speakers Review

    [​IMG]

    When it comes to home theater, I'm probably one of the more budget-conscious people you'd ever meet. I've been involved in home theater since 1985, before there really was such a thing, connecting my Beta HiFi VCR to my bookshelf system, and adding rear speakers using the audio out on the receiver/amplifier to a seperate amp and using a poor-man's surround solution to decode the matrixed rear...

    Thank you for your review. I have been an Energy fan for over a decade, and currently using CF-30's and a CC-10 for my front three. Having recently bought the SVS SB-2000 (based on yours and others reviews), I am thinking of taking the plunge to these SVS towers...As an owner of Energy (and reviewer of SVS) do you think its worth the upgrade?

    Looks like I'll be moving towards the SVS then! Any advice on in-ceiling atmos speakers that are timbre matched with the SVS line?

    Many thanks!

    I have the SVS Ultra Towers and a PB12-NSD and PB-2000. Awesome! (plus Ultra Bookshelf for center behind the screen).

    Just ordered a pair of the prime towers. How many hours should I run them before I determine if I should keep them or not?

    Update 11/13 - The treble on this was fatiguing with some music. With certain types of music they were outstanding but were unforgiving with female voices or trumpets.

    I wanted to like them and I gave them about 50 hours , but it was too bright for my taste.
