Speaker and subwoofer-maker SVS took advantage of the low-intensity scene at the Venetian to make a low-key introduction of its new Prime Pinnacle tower speaker (shown at left).
SVS plans for the Pinnacle ($1,500/pair) to be the new top-dog model in its high-value Prime Series. The speaker’s slim cabinet houses three 6.5-inch woofers, a one-inch aluminum dome tweeter, and a top mounted 5-inch midrange driver. Three ports are provided on the back panel that allow for individual tuning of high, midrange, and bass frequencies. SVS featured the Pinnacle in a home theater demo alongside its 3000 series subwoofers, which the company released in November. When listening to a performance of The Police playing live, the affordable system’s dynamic impact and extension was seriously impressive.
The SVS Prime Pinnacle tower speaker will be available this spring.
