Potent sound in a compact package
If you don't have room for tower speakers, but love big, wide-open sound with pinpoint imaging, check out SVS's Ultra Bookshelf models. These gems combine outstanding transparency and detail with startling dynamics and bass. Whether presenting the relaxed, engaging sound of vinyl, or pounding out the multi-layered soundtrack of an action movie, the Ultra Bookshelf speakers deliver a convincing audio experience.
Mastering the science and art of speaker design
SVS begins the speaker design process with extensive computer modeling, which helps them zero in on the right driver, crossover, and cabinet characteristics. Then, like other world-class speaker companies, they test each design in an anechoic chamber, which eliminates the effects of room reflections, to ensure highly accurate measurements.
The third and most critical step involves lots of listening in rooms closely calibrated to resemble rooms in typical homes. The engineering team listens to familiar tracks over and over, working toward sound that is both accurate and emotionally engaging. This is where the art of listening balances out scientific measurement.
