    Outstanding Small Theater Package!

    My wife and I purchased a ski condo and wanted to install a modest theater system in it. As the condo is relatively small and we have neighbors we wanted a system that was unobtrusive, sounded good, and has excellent bass without excessive or extremely low output that would disturb anyone. I'd auditioned various small theater packages from Energy and Definitive Technology...Bose (never seriously considered). They were good but not quite what I was looking for. I have a large SVS sub in our main theater system at home so I'm familiar with their sound quality. As the SVS system was not available for audition in store I ordered the system feeling confidant in my prior experience with the brand and having read many reviews of the package. Boy am I glad I ordered this system! It sounds absolutely amazing! For the price, it would be very difficult to beat, RSL has a system now that would likely be a strong contender but it wasn't available at the time. The satellites are very accurate and airy speakers. I've played with altering compression rates of music played through them and can definitely tell a large difference between lossless and compressed files. If sound quality is important to you, these speakers can be revealing. They aren't going to be on the same level of revealing like my hybrid planars in my 2 channel system but they aren't intended to be. Due to the satellite size they obviously don't produce much bass but they blend seamlessly with the subwoofer. The sub is extremely tight and punchy, it can produce some menacing bass for as small as it is. It doesn't kick me in the chest and kill incandescent filaments like my main sub at home (I switched to LED) but it does its intended job in a small space perfectly. The system had my wife jump in the first movie we watched on the system. There was a gunshot and she thought it sounded real. I couldn't be any happier with this system, truly an outstanding value. There are several new satellite speakers I'd consider now that weren't all available [or available to me] at the time. RSL now has two series of speakers, both worth consideration, one of which is similarly priced to SVS. The other I'd strongly consider would be Ascend Luna's but just a pair of them costs more than the entire SVS 5.1 package. For my needs, this system is perfect.

    I wanted great sound from my speakers and I got it. I don't want towers clogging up my home theater room. The quality of the sound was what was most important. I went to the local Best Buy that has a Magnolia center. They did not have these speakers, but the employee was able to use a set up that approximated the quality of sound (and mine cost a lot less money). Needlessly, I worried until my speakers were delivered. The Best Buy employee was right as to duplicating the quality of sound. While the bass speaker case is of normal size the rest of the speakers are size that makes them blend into their surroundings. I want to watch the picture on my TV, not be distracted by the speakers because they take up so much room that that is all you see.

    After trying Definitive Technology ProCinema 600 5.1 I felt I needed to step up as I really didn’t find it any better than my 13 year old Sony cheap HTIB 5.1 setup. I was considering Bose for the very close price point. I wanted mid-end theater speakers with some what compact size speakers due to a small family room. Ended up purchasing SVS Prime 5.1 after hearing a pair (not the full 5.1) vs Boss at my local Best Buy Magnolia. I’m very happy with SVS. Paired it with Sony STRDN1080 and after calibration the sound quality was amazing and balanced. The sub is impressive too, I could feel the punches. With DT600, it was just flat.

    SVS continues to produce outstanding products. For a smaller speaker system, these perform excellent. Well worth the money!

    Great sounds for the small size of the speakers. Highly recommendable.
