SVS ditches the cables as two new products come to UK distributor Karma-AV
UK distributor Karma-AV introduces two new systems from SVS with the Prime Wireless Speaker System and Wireless SoundBase bridge, priced at £699 and £549 respectively. Measuring 160 x 260 x 180mm (WxHxD) and claiming a total of 200W amplification split four ways to drive the individual 25mm tweeter and 114mm mid/bass driver fitted to each standmount, the aptly named Prime Wireless Speaker System handles connectivity via Bluetooth – with aptX support – and wi-fi as well as wired connections from optical and line-level sources. Control is via smart device over wi-fi using the DTS Play-Fi app, which offers multi-room capability for up to 16 zones and supports 24-bit/192kHz playback as well as Amazon’s Alexa voice control. A dedicated output provides a wired connection to a sub, while a USB port accepts the US-based company’s SoundPath Wireless Audio Adaptor for wireless subwoofer connection, which can also be used for charging mobile devices.
The SoundBase bridge is a compact integrated amplifier measuring 230 x 80 x 224mm (WxHxD) claiming 2x 150W into 4ohm that can also operate as a wireless streaming source via its pre output. It supports aptX Bluetooth, wi-fi and wired audio connectivity via optical and RCA inputs, and also offers complete multi-room integration using the DTS Play-Fi app. Both models come in a sleek black finish and are available now.
