Home loudspeakers are evaluated on a cost vs performance ratio, and these speakers, in their price category stand alone for performance characteristics. On balance they are equal to, or exceed sets costing twice as much. The main reason being is their bass performance. These are a little small for floorstanders, and too large for bookshelves, but that's the key to their success. No bookshelfs in their price range can get as low as these can because of their size, and no floorstanders can match them in that price range for refinement. The only drawback that I saw in them was their relatively low sensitivity, and somewhat recessed mid range. A quality mid level amp should be considered necessary for party level SPL's, but for a small to mid size room, 80 watts per channel should be sufficient for most users. I compared them to my Def Tech SM450's which retail for 3x the price of these, but can be had street price for 2x more, and they fared well. The Pioneers had a slightly better lower bass, and somewhat more refined character. I connected them to a PSB sub zeroi, and they blended seamlessly with the sub set at 75hz. These speakers can perform satisfactorily without a sub, but when one is added, the sound reproduction can approximate speakers costing way more. I wish I had known about them before I got the 450's as I could have saved $125 bucks, and have been just as happy. Those in the market for new speakers that can be used as bookshelves in the right environment, or as floorstanders using small speaker stands, must audition these before digging too deep for quality sound, and kicking yourself later on after hearing your friends set.

EDIT 1-25-2013: I finally received placement speakers, which are the newer model of these. I am completely satisfied with Pioneer support, but the process took a while, partially due to my fault. It was hard to find a box and pack the speakers. I recommend you keep the box. In the new version, each tower speaker comes in separate box.

EDIT 11-21-2012: A few weeks ago the tweeters suddenly "blew" (burn smell) in 3-4 towers during normal listening and I am working with Pioneer warranty. The bookshelves and center was fine. This is unacceptable and I believe the towers have a design flaw that caused this. I am using a Denon 2112ci AV receiver.

EDIT 10-9-2012: A new model of these speakers have been released. I am not sure if they are better or worse (supposedly better). The price of these will likely get to clearance status soon.

I bought these speakers including the matching center channel and 2 bookshelf/surround for my system about 4 months ago. BestBuy had a deal where the whole package was $280 (no joke) and I jumped on it.

Short version: These speakers are the best choice for someone on a budget.

I spent a lot of agonizing research to find the best speakers...which is hard because you can't really test them before purchase. Thus, I do not know exactly how every speaker sound systems and can only judge what others have recommended in reviews and my expedience with these.

Highlights/comments about these speakers:

Watts/Compatibility
They require the power output most AV receivers supply, meaning you are probably aren't going to over or under power them. A lot of more expensive speakers require separate amps and will not sound good with only a AV receiver. Fortunately, these are simply plug and play.

I ordered the Pioneer SP-FS51-R speakers on 10/7/2013. They arrived by UPS ground on 10/17/2013. Talk about your slow boat!! The speakers arrived in the original packaging. Nothing extra, the picture of the speakers right on the box. Don't expect if they come by ground UPS leaving your new speakers sitting in front of the door with the ability to grow legs before you get home. Luckily for me I was home the day of arrival. I removed the speakers from the box to find a small flat stand that needed to be bolted to the bottom of the speaker. I always knew they were a little short for my taste. I built two stands with nine inch legs from Home Depot. The tops 12" X 12" and are made of Maple. I used the supplied bottoms as a template for the bolt holes for the new stands. I painted the stands gloss black from a rattle can then bolted them to the bottom of the speakers. I have to say myself they look nice. I hooked them up to my Yamaha surround sound receiver. They sound good. They are brand new and are a little tight. The bass response is not impressive but I have a Polk Audio PSW505 to perform the low end duties. It's the highs and mids that were missing from my system. These speakers fill out those duties nicely. The center speaker is a Pioneer SP-C22 I feel my system is complete and plenty loud enough. For the price these SP-FS51-R speakers are the ticket.
