SVS has announced the SVS Prime Wireless 2.1 Speaker System with SB-1000 subwoofer and SVS SoundPath RCA Audio Interconnect Cable. The company promises that the powered speaker and subwoofer system delivers audiophile-sound quality, modern digital convenience, and future-facing connectivity options for music and audio lovers.
Prime Wireless speakers include WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, line level and optical inputs, high-resolution multi-room streaming, voice control via Alexa, custom presets and more. High sound quality is achieved through a combination of true stereo separation from a powered active-passive speaker pair with a 200-watt (50-watts x 4) Class-D amplifier, active digital crossover, and 192 kHz/24-bit DAC.
Control of the SVS Prime Wireless Speaker system is through the WiFi-connected DTS Play-Fi app on a smartphone, computer, tablet or other device. Voice control of music is possible through Amazon Alexa devices for a “hands-free” option when controlling volume, multi-room playback, streaming sources, and more. Dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth with aptX and AAC enable high-resolution wireless streaming from multiple iOS, Android and Windows devices without interruption.
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, and many more. All can be streamed directly from a home’s WiFi network. The Play-Fi app also enables multi-room playback with a maximum of four zones and 16 speakers per zone. The platform also features “Critical Listening Mode” for streaming lossless high-resolution (24-bit/192 kHz) file playback.
Unique to the SVS Prime Wireless Speaker System are six front panel presets that provide instant access to a user’s favorite Spotify or Pandora playlists, Internet Radio stations, and other streaming music services without needing a phone or tablet, since they stream directly from a home’s WiFi network. Similar to a car radio, users simply program the presets and then push the left front dial to toggle between their favorite audio content with a single tap.
The SB-1000 subwoofer connects directly to the Prime Wireless Speakers’ subwoofer output, which features an automatic 80 Hz high-pass filter. The SB-1000’s compact cabinet includes a front-firing 12-inch high-excursion driver with dual ferrite magnets and FEA-optimized motor technology.
Driving the SB-1000 subwoofer is a Sledge STA-300D amplifier with DSP controls and equalization curve optimized for enhanced transient response and room gain. The amplifier is rated at 300 watts RMS, 700+ watts peak power.
The SVS SoundPath RCA audio interconnect cable maintains signal purity between the Prime Wireless Speakers and SB-1000 subwoofer, while protecting against RF and electromagnetic interference. The interconnects feature pure copper conductors with 24K gold plated brass connectors and a five-layer dielectric insulation.
The SVS Prime Wireless 2.1 Speaker System is available in Piano Gloss White and Piano Gloss Black finish for $1199.98 or a Premium Black Ash finish for $1099.98.
