SVS Rocks the UK, Earns

Judges from the Clarity Alliance honored a 5.1 system featuring SVS Ultra Series speakers and the SB13-Ultra Subwoofer as the best in show award winner for home cinema rooms.

Girard, OH - February 26, 2013 - SVS, a worldwide leader in high performance home audio products, received a best of show award from The Clarity Alliance at the Sound & Vision - The Bristol Show 2013. Judges visited every room at the UK's largest home theater and audio show and scored each system's performance, awarding the SVS Ultra Series 5.1 system as winner of the Best Home Cinema Room category. SVS was exhibiting at the show for the first time and beat out systems costing four and five times as much.

"As a first time exhibitor, SVS is honored to receive such an amazing award! We demonstrated the versatility of the SVS Ultra series by alternating multichannel music, two-channel music and more conventional home theater demos and I think it paid off," said Gary Yacoubian, SVS president and managing partner. "Just as we saw at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, attendees were stunned and delighted at what they experienced after learning our price range, and that is our vision!"

The Clarity Alliance membership includes retailers, manufacturers, distributors, magazines and individuals from the home entertainment industry. They work together to bring a better experience through better service and a thorough understanding of emerging technologies, explained in easy to understand jargon-free terms.

Simon Bowles, outgoing vice-chairman of the Alliance, says, "It is important that the hard work and effort put in by the many companies which exhibit at the premier UK hi-fi show is recognized and rewarded."

The SVS Ultra Speakers were modeled using the most sophisticated engineering available, including finite element analysis (FEA) to optimize performance. Form follows function in the industrial design, so the striking appearance of the Ultra Speakers also greatly contributes to their amazing sound quality. The sound-enhancing non-parallel cabinet design and UltraSonic drivers in the center and tower speakers combined with the unique Duet Mode creating two speakers out of one in the surrounds give the Ultra Series' a formidable combination of innovation, performance and value. Add in the SB13-Ultra Subwoofer, which has received numerous accolades as the best subwoofer available at any price, and it becomes clear why the system earned was a standout at the show and deserving of the award.

Primare also played a key role in the system with processing, amplification and playback components that let the Ultra Series speakers perform at their finest. With every component, Primare's goal is to reduce noise and distortion in the signal path by using the best possible components, multiple internal power supplies, short signal transits, isolated display/control/processing/amplification circuits and by placing all gain control in one device. A shared focus on performance and reliability through innovative use of high quality materials made Primare a perfect complement to the SVS Ultra Speakers and subwoofer.

The winning "Best Home Cinema Room 2013" system was comprised of:

*SVS Ultra series speakers (Two Ultra Towers, One Ultra Center, Two Ultra Surrounds)

*SVS SB13-Ultra subwoofer

*Primare SP 32 AV processor

*Primare A30.7 7 x 150w power amp

*Primare BD32 Blu-ray multi format player
