Audio company SVS rolled out new wares at CES 2022 — Prime Wireless Pro Speakers and an accompanying SoundBase multi-room amplifier. Both have added support for Apple’s AirPlay 2 streaming over previous Prime Wireless models’ capabilities, among other new features.

SVS Prime Wireless Pro Speakers add AirPlay 2 and more

SVS‘s Prime Wireless Pro Speakers are an upgrade of the company’s current Prime Wireless model. The new ones add a bigger cabinet for deeper bass, an HDMI eARC input and a remote control.

And those aren’t the only upgrades for the new model. The Prime Wireless Pro adds Chromecast built-in and AirPlay 2 to broaden compatibility with streaming sources. The new ones will also carry over the current model’s support of Bluetooth, DTS-Play Fi and Spotify Connect.

The new version uses a 5.25-inch woofer and 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter in each speaker, powered by a 200-watt (50 watts x 4) built-in amplifier. The new and current models both feature Amazon Alexa and Google voice control and sport a subwoofer output jack.

Prime Wireless Pro Speakers will come in black or white finishes.
