Summary: An excellent value! The speakers sound very clear and natural. I have a sub setup with these two speakers hooked up to a Yamaha Natural Sound. I play vinyl through it and the sound is very delicious.
Summary: After listening to speakers from three different manufacturers for my home theatre sound system, this one, Infinity Primus P163BK Two-way 6 1/2-Inch Bookshelf/Satellite Speaker, and the very inexpensive Sony SS-B1000 5-1/4-Inch Bookshelf Speakers (Pair), I enjoy the Pioneer the best because it has a very deep bass that sometimes I can't figure out where does this bass ends and the subwoofer (Polk) takes over. So for home theatre, this is a good choice (I give a 5+).
Summary: As an avid music listener and professional performer for many years, I've heard lots of speakers, and have owned more than a few of them. My principal stereo speakers for several years have been B&W 801Ns (with Mark Levinson electronics), while I've used assorted PSBs, DefTechs, Altecs, Spicas and others for my theater systems. Most of them I've enjoyed well enough. And I think the B&Ws are great - I like them better than the current "D" version.
Summary: Amazing true sound quality in these Pioneer SP-BS41-LR 130 watt speakers. I replaced my larger KLH speakers after 15 years and these Pioneer speakers sound as good, if not better than my KLHs which cost 750 bucks back in the day. I would highly recommend these bookshelf or TV pairing speakers for anyone in an apartment or house. They are excellent price performers vs similar units.
Summary: Okay, I have been an audiophile for about 35 years. I confess that I have spent as much on speakers in the past as some people spent on a decent used car. These little Pioneer speakers are amazing, and every bit as good as the (rave) reviews here indicate. In fact, for the price & size they are certainly the best speakers I have ever heard -- maybe for two or three times the price. The highs are very natural, clear, and "box-less". The bass is strong and tight.
Summary: Very transparent, with especially clear vocals. Good bass for the size (although I would never use them as primaries in a space larger than a cubicle without a subwoofer). Slight chip in one of the cabinets, although that is probably just a random defect in my order: it doesn't affect the sound, and isn't worth an exchange since these are not exactly art objects in any event. For this price and size, they are an amazing value.
Summary: For the price, you just can't beat these speakers, I am just starting to break them in and they sound great! They also look much nicer in person and would compliment any system. Also, shipping was lightning fast and damage free.
