“We weren’t content with making the best sounding wireless speaker, but rather a solution that competes with the finest sounding speakers available at any price,” said SVS President, Gary Yacoubian. “Couple that with the amazing user interface and versatile connectivity options and Prime Wireless Pro appeals to both seasoned audiophiles and anyone just starting their Hi-Fi or home theater journey.”

Yacoubian continued, “High-Resolution streaming has elevated the importance of sound quality to more people than ever, yet the wireless smart speaker category is still dominated by products that can’t deliver on the potential. SVS Prime Wireless Pro marries the convenience and simplicity of smart wireless speakers with breathtaking sound quality. Audio fans can finally have the best of both worlds.”
