SVS Prime Wireless speakers get a new lifestyle look

SVS has announced that the SVS Prime Wireless Speaker System is now available in Piano Gloss White finish. The company says the new hand-applied finish “introduces a brighter tone for audio fans seeking stunningly immersive sound with modern visual appeal.” Prime Wireless speakers include WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, line level and optical inputs, high-resolution multi-room streaming, voice control via Alexa and custom presets, and are now available in this more “lifestyle-friendly” lighter finish.

SVS says that the audiophile sound quality is achieved through a combination of true stereo separation from a powered speaker pair of active-passive bookshelf speakers, 200-watt Class-D amplifier, active digital crossover and 192KHz/24-bit DAC. Engineers used the active crossover to control the signal power distributed to each individual tweeter and woofer, resulting in a much broader soundstage with “deeper, more powerful” bass than one would expect from a compact speaker system.

SVS Prime Wireless Speakers can be a powered stereo HiFi speaker system, play on a desktop with a computer or tablet, connect to a TV for home theater sound, or be used as part of a multi-room, whole-home audio system. Users can also leverage multiple connections at once and use the Prime Wireless Speaker System as the primary source of audio playback in a smart wireless audio zone.

Music, volume and other settings can be adjusted from a prime seat or while moving around using the WiFi connected DTS Play-Fi app. Voice control of music is possible through Amazon Alexa devices for a “hands-free” option when controlling volume, multi-room playback and streaming sources. Dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth with aptX and AAC enable high-resolution wireless streaming from multiple iOS, Android and Windows devices without interruption.

Six front panel presets provide access to a user’s Spotify or Pandora playlists, Internet Radio stations and other streaming music services without needing a phone or tablet, as they stream directly from the home’s WiFi network. Similar to a car radio, users can program the presets and then push the left front dial to toggle between preferred audio content.

Through the DTS Play-Fi platform, the SVS Prime Wireless Speaker System gives users direct access to music and entertainment streaming sources, including, Spotify, SiriusXM, Pandora, Amazon Music, iHeart Radio, Tidal, Internet Radio, among others. All can be streamed directly from a home’s WiFi network. DTS Play-Fi also works with Amazon Alexa. The platform includes a “Critical Listening Mode” for streaming lossless high-resolution (24bit/192kHz) file playback. Connectivity options include optical and line level inputs for connecting to computers, TVs, gaming consoles, CD players, AV receivers, smartphones and tablets.

The SVS Prime Wireless Speaker System is available in the new Piano Gloss White and a high-end Piano Gloss Black finish. MSRP is $599.99 for the active-passive speaker system or $449.99 for a single Prime Wireless powered speaker.
