2014 Product of the Year EntrantSVS Ultra Surround
SVS’s Ultra Surround delivers an incredibly immersive and multichannel sound experience in an area that has long been the rear of product development. SVS invented a surround speaker that not only delivers real innovation, but also a unique value to the consumer. Consumers can expect outstanding performance in the conventional dipole and bipole single speaker modes but the Ultra Surround offers a little something extra. Duet mode, which create two separate speaker within one cabinet, allows for true 7-channel surround sound with just two surround speakers instead of the more common four. Found exclusively in the SVS Ultra Surround, Duet mode gives home theater enthusiasts a more immersive and impactful sound experience for less money, and is also useful for those who want to experience discrete seven-channel surround sound, but lack the space for additional speakers. Expert engineering and industrial design allow the SVS Ultra Surround two achieve flexible sound modes and uncompromised fidelity. Even the physical design offers sonic benefits. Non-parallel cabinet panels reduce standing waves within the cabinet, effectively eliminating frequency response coloration. Wedge-shaped front baffles and flush-mounted drivers reduce edge diffraction and improved on-axis high frequency response.
