Excerpt: Thanks B&H for selling such a GREAT product as the Pioneer SP-FS52 by Andrew Jones. Pioneer has a winner here. No need of any other speakers for sure. Even with the big snow storm, you folks had it here in a couple of days.
Summary: These speakers are the perfect fit in any set up. From 2.0 to 5.1 and beyond they iwll serve as the perfect anchors to your system. I have been using them in both a dedicated 2.0 listening setup mostly since setting them up. When powered through a dedicated class D stereo amp you could hear the true power and range of the speakers. They are loud as needed, but more importantly they produce a crisp sound that is open and not narrow at all.
Summary: I was looking for a great sounding surround sound set that wasn't to much money. I did a lot of research and bought the complete set of Andrew Jones speakers in 2012. The only thing I didn't get was the sub. I went with a Polk 12" sub. Let me just say the floor speakers alone are extremely impressive. Sometimes I set my reciver to 2.0 and marvel at the sound quality of the SP-FS52s. They are full, clear, deep and have such a great powerful yet balanced sound!
They easily fill the room and make the movie even more ...

Summary: I bought the floor standing and center channel to replace VERY cheap monoprice surrounds for a home theater and have been blown away by every piece in this set (use the bookshelves for the TV upstairs). They easily fill the room and make the movie even more immersive than before. Granted, I got them on a huge sale (close to 50% off) but would still suggest them at full price.
Summary: These turned out to be pretty good speakers. Getting them during a limited special offer was great too. I bought 4 of these for a 5.1 system on a good Yamaha receiver for my "workout" room. I always prefer using 4 matched speakers for the corner speakers in 5.1 and these worked out well. Sound is nice and clean. Not a great as my 4 Klipsch towers in the great room, but then these were almost an order of magnitude less expensive...
Summary: I ordered and received two of these floor standing speakers and two bookshelf speakers as well as the center speaker from the SP-PK52F line sold as a package. In trying out the bookshelf speakers I was thoroughly disappointed in the surround sound aspects of the speaker line for the bookshelf and center speaker as they were barely audible when installed despite the adjustments I made using the YMAO sound optimization feature from my Yamaha receiver.
Summary: I do not have an audiophile (read: limitless) budget, but I have been directly exposed to top tier live sound systems such as Funktion One & Turbosound. I know what sounds and feels good. These speakers are an excellent value and they produce wonderful vibrations. I bought a pair of these floor standing speakers for ~$127 a piece or around ~$250. I am very happy with their performance, they sound fantastic and I imagine they will perform as such for a very long time.
Summary: Wow! Amazing!!! I have Polks RtiA7 and if I compared them for the price at $97 I payed for each vs $550 on the Polk and its totally worthy. If you are new into home theater and music. This is the best speaker for its price! And i have vast experience with good speakers. I own polks rti, polk monitor 40, definitive technology and Monitor Audio Silvers.
Summary: Really nice speakers for the price. I was able to get them on sale here. I was blown away by the build quality. They don't compete with my NHT setup but I didn't expect them to. I bought them for a friend but I could live with them for movies/tv/music. It's been a while since I listened to them and I only had them for a few days, but this is what I remember: The bass was good, a bit muddy. Treble was a bit hot. Mids were clear and had some warmth.
I have concluded that my speakers are significantly better then the more expensive audio equipment

Summary: I am an audiophile. The idea that I would ever own a Pioneer product is laughable. My last set of speakers were handmade and cost about $2,000. I have previously owned Dahlquist DQ 10s, Magnaplanars and through the years, other $2-15,000 speakers. I have listened to my speakers in A/B tests against polk, Klipsch, B&W and others. I have concluded that my speakers are significantly better then the more expensive audio equipment.
