SVS, manufacturer of high-performance speakers, subwoofers, wireless audio, cables, and accessories, proudly announces the SVS Prime Wireless Pro SoundBase (read the review here). It’s the company’s second-generation integrated stereo amplifier bringing audiophile sound quality to the wireless audio space with high-resolution streaming, a vast array of connectivity choices, and a user-friendly control interface.

SVS Prime Wireless Pro SoundBase (buy at Crutchfield) packs a dynamic punch from its 300 watt Class D amplifier powerful enough to drive large, full-range towers and more discrete in-wall and satellite speakers with pristine, effortless playback. A sophisticated 24-bit/192kHz DAC ensures pinpoint accuracy and bit-perfect signal rendering, while enabling high-res streaming, wirelessly.

High-resolution wireless streaming options for the SVS Prime Wireless Pro SoundBase include Wi-Fi, Apple Airplay 2 for iPhones and iOS, and Chromecast for Android phones and other devices. Spotify Connect and Bluetooth are also supported. Through the DTS Play-Fi app, the system renders the highest resolution streaming possible from Amazon Music, Qobuz, iHeart, Pandora, YouTube, Sirius XM, Tidal, Pandora, Audible, and others. 

Connectivity options abound with inputs for HDMI, Optical (TOSLINK), 3.5mm AUX, headphone, and analog line level inputs, plus a subwoofer output for deeper heart-pounding bass. With its line level output, Prime Wireless Pro SoundBase can also be a source component in a home theater or 2-channel audio system.

Control is possible via smartphone, tablet, or PC via the DTS Play-Fi app, the intuitive front panel display, or an IR remote. For hands-free operation, it responds to Alexa, Siri, 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 products in 16 zones.

Compact enough to fit easily in any 2-channel stereo, desktop, or home theater system, the design aesthetic of SVS Prime Wireless Pro SoundBase is understated with a modern digital flare from the front panel OLED display. Able to display source, artist name, song title, and volume settings, the elegant display provides a rich and intuitive user experience.

Also on the front panel are 6 backlit preset buttons that provide instant access to sources, favorite playlists, streaming services, and more, much like a car radio’s presets.   

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.  

The SVS Prime Wireless Pro SoundBase plays flawlessly as the source component powering a audiophile stereo system or 2-channel home theater setup. It can also be paired with multiple other units to power a multi-room or whole-home audio system.
