HARD TO BEAT!
, August 31, 2012
This review is from: Pioneer SP-FS52-LR Andrew Jones Designed Floor standing Loudspeaker (each) (Electronics)
Every once in a while in the audio world you come across an amazing bargain in sound. The Pioneer SP-FS52 fits the bill.
Designed by Pioneer's Chief Sound Engineer Andrew Jones ( no, not the ballplayer)it is a true giant killer. Solidly built,nice to look at with it's curved cabinets,you could spend twice the amount and not match it's sound quality. In a stereo only, man cave setting, matched with an Onkyo A5L Digital Amp (now available at huge discounts and a great piece of audio gear after break-in)a Grace IRDT-200 Internet Tuner and all joined with low cost QED digital and speaker cable I was amazed just how good they sounded. After a break-in time of about 100 hours,highs are silky smooth,the midrange is sweet and there is enough bottom end placed about 18 inches from the rear wall that no sub is necessary.Now I picked these about about three weeks ago before they were available on Amazon from a major online store for one-hundred sixty bucks a pair with tax and shipping, a huge bargain, but even at full retail they are still a steal!If you are looking to spend some where in the neighborhood of $500 for a pair for floor standers you must at least audition these.You could buy these and spend the extra cash on something else....like more toys!
