SVS Prime Pinnacle Loudspeaker £1995 Review

So where’s the trade-off that the Prime Pinnacle’s price tag implies? Sure, there’s a sense that treble definition could be sharper, which robs tracks of that top layer of incisiveness, and the superb driving nature of its low-end isn’t matched by the same forcefulness higher up the frequency band. As such, the astonishing lead solo in Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb’ [The Wall; EMI 50999 028944 2 3] sounds a little shy, Dave Gilmour’s axe not so much cleaving through the instrumentation as gliding across it.
This is hardly a blot on the copybook for, as well as being nuanced, authoritative and weighty with bass, these SVS’s floorstanders are very effective at creating soundstage depth and width.”
