Summary: I just got my pair of BS22's, so what follows is a first impression. That impression is, basically: "OMG! How can it sound so good for the price?" And actually, nevermind the price, these things just sound great, to my ears anyway. I'm going through my music library and playing all sorts of material from opera to Jerry to Maiden, Herbie, Jimi, Otis, Jello, Iggy, Bowie, Johnny, and back to Rachmaninoff, loving how it all sounds.
Summary: Great sound. I initially purchased these as interim speakers for a second home. These are great speakers for the price and I may not replace them. I have ordered the matching center speaker to build on the 5.1 surround system.
Summary: These speakers represent a good price to performance ratio. I find the range of treble to bass very good considering the size. I'm using these in my living room (20' x 20'). The sound is better than any other bookshelf speakers I've had. I like music, and am more than satisfied with these speakers. You could spend more and get better, but I've spent more and had worse...
Outstanding quality ridiculously out of proportion to the price

Summary: At the outset, I will say that I use these speakers in a two channel system with a very high end subwoofer system (NHT Evolution U2...yes, a bit of overkill), so I won't have anything to say about the bass response. These speakers, and the Pioneer BS21's that came before them, are superb when used within their limits.
