SVS has announced the SVS Prime Wireless Pro Powered Speaker Pair. The company’s second generation of wireless smart speakers brings reference sound quality to the wireless category by marrying high-resolution audio playback with ample connectivity options, and smart, versatile control.
Consisting of two speakers, one powered and one passive, each driver in the SVS Prime Wireless Pro Powered Speakers receives 50 watts from a 200-watt (50 watts x 4) amplifier. Discrete bi-amplification to the 1-inch aluminum dome tweeters and 5.25-inch mid-bass drivers ensure massive dynamic output without a trace of distortion and a much bigger sounding speaker than the cabinet size would suggest, according to SVS.
A 24-bit/192 kHz DAC and precisely tuned active digital crossover within the Prime Wireless Pro Powered Speakers maximizes performance of each driver by controlling power delivery and frequency response. The processing capacity allows SVS Prime Wireless Pro Powered Speakers to render the highest resolution playback possible from all streaming services, wirelessly.
High-resolution wireless streaming options for the SVS Prime Wireless Pro Powered Speakers include Wi-Fi, Apple Airplay 2 for iPhones and iOS, and Chromecast for Android and other devices. Users can also connect directly via Spotify Connect and Bluetooth. Through the DTS Play-Fi app, the system supports the highest-resolution playback possible from streaming services, including Amazon Music, Qobuz, iHeart, Pandora, YouTube, Sirius XM, Tidal, Pandora, Audible, and others.
HDMI with ARC/eARC makes SVS Prime Wireless Pro a soundbar replacement for high-resolution TV audio and streaming music in stereo. Additional inputs include optical (TOSLINK), analog line level, ethernet, 3.5mm AUX, and a subwoofer output. Control is possible via smartphone, tablet, or PC via the DTS Play-Fi app, the front-panel display, or an IR remote. If hands-free is your preference, the speaker system responds to Siri, Alexa, and Hey Google voice commands via supported devices.
The DTS Play-Fi app also lets users access streaming services, radio guides, or a home media server from any smartphone or tablet and distribute it across the home to as many as 32 different Play-Fi products in 16 zones.
Aesthetically, the SVS Prime Wireless Pro Powered Speakers combine the classically handsome appeal of a traditional Hi-Fi stereo system with modern digital flare from the front-panel OLED display. Source, artist name, song title, input, volume settings, and more can be displayed for an intuitive user experience.
Also on the front panel are six backlit preset buttons for instant, one-touch access to sources, favorite playlists, streaming services, podcasts, and more, just like a car radio preset. Knobs on the front panel allow users to toggle between sources and adjust display brightness as well as pause playback and set volume. The IR remote controls all the most critical functions and provides direct input buttons for HDMI, Bluetooth, Optical, and Line In for easy switching between sources.
This technology package is swathed in a hand-applied Piano Gloss Black or Piano Gloss White cabinet finish that blends seamlessly into any décor. Pricing is $899.99 for the speaker pair.
