- RF Molded Curved Cabinet
- Gold 5-Way Binding Posts

It’s okay to stare. With true curved cabinet design, not only are the SP-FS52 Floor Standing Speakers aesthetically more pleasing, so is the entire listening experience. The high-performance and exceptional sound quality is the result of this stiffer design, which reduces standing sound waves inside the cabinet.
As a literal example of the term “beautifully engineered”, the elegant and appealing speaker grills on the SP-FS52s protect the speakers, but are also removable if you prefer to see the drivers exposed.

The AV website review consensus was this grouping offered super price to performance value. After a few months listening to a lot of music via CDs, Pandora One, and internet radio, I arrived at the same conclusion. The speakers are also excellent for surround sound during movies, and because of a substantial center channel one does not struggle to hear dialogue. My Denon X2000 AVR (95w/ch) allows one to adjust the center channel dialogue level which helps. My setup is within a 204 sq.foot room which is roughly 2/3 the size of the ideal space for this grouping when listening to music and just fine for Home Theatre.
The speakers sounded dead out of the box but significantly better after several hours of play. The Denon X2000 has Audyssey MultEQ XT calibration. After running Audyssey I began to fully appreciate the sound field created by these speakers.
Just really smooth and beautiful sound.
I have played all genres of music including complete classical performances that last over 20 minutes without disappointment.
It did take a while to figure out the proper adjusments to Audyssey after the initial calibration (among other tweaks) to achieve the full potential of these speakers. The modest sized Towers are somewhat vertically challenged being only 35.5" tall. I made 7" spiked risers for my mine. The center speaker will require a dedicated space. I built a two sided riser/pedestal for my TV placing the center speaker within the pedestal, just beneath the TV. Problem solved, and TV at a better viewing height.
This is an entry level 5.1 speaker package with good enough fidelity to groove on music and a no brainer for Home Theater enthusiasts.
These are not highly efficient speakers and lose detail at very low volume. Also, they are not designed for extreme high volume. However, they play loud enough for me without distortion.
When someone asked Andrew Jones how Pioneer could offer such a nice package so inexpensively; Jones replied by saying Pioneer challenged him to create a quality speaker system the average person could afford. An affordable quality speaker system draws more people into the world of music appreciation and these people will upgrade over time.
Listening to music in 2.1 stereo mode where the front L/R towers and subwoofer are the only active speakers is how one can fully appreciate the dynamic audio quality of the towers. I am impressed with how nicely the towers process all the information as opposed to the input being split into surround sound.
Fabulous vocal/instrumental clarity while maintaining warmth and a sonic field seemingly suspended middle front. Even in 2.1 stereo there is a degree of three-dimensional imaging.
I do think the lovely sound the speakers deliver is a combination of Audyssey and the speakers themselves.
-About the system
-Shipping and Handling
To begin, this is my first home theater system I've ever built. I didn't want to spend more than $1,000. It took me about a month to decide on a system. I narrowed down my choices to Energy's Take Classic, Yamaha's HTiB systems, and a few others that had my attention. Because of its excellent reviews, the Take Classic was my first choice, which puts you back about $400 plus whatever you spend on your receiver, cables, etc. Realistically, I was looking at about $700 if I went with the Take Classic because I did not yet have a receiver. Also, the room where my system was to be installed is about 14x16 with carpet. I wanted the best bang for my buck at under $1,000. I came across a couple of reviews which mentioned the Pioneer system. CNET was one of them. You may check it out if you like. Just google: CNET review SP-PK52FS. After about a month of jumping back and forth between systems and reading a wealth of reviews I decided to go with Pioneer.
The system performs beautifully. I'm not an audiophile but I have worked as an AV tech for over 10 years and for the size of my room the system is more than enough and sounds fantastic. Out of the box the one thing that caught me by surprise is the size of the speakers especially the center speaker. It's pretty large and required plenty of space. I even considered buying a riser for my Panasonic Viera 58". You will need to plan for this bad boy. The towers are obviously large and the surrounds are pretty big, too. I don't con the system for its size because I was able to work things out perfectly in my small living room. The sound is clean and the bass is great.
After deciding to buy this system the next challenge was finding the right receiver. Long story short I narrowed my choices down to the Yamaha RX-V377 and the Denon AVR-S500BT. If you go to Best Buy's website you can compare the two side by side which I found helpful. In doing so I chose the Denon mainly because it has built-in Bluetooth, handles 1 more HDMI than the Yamaha, and puts out more power as well. The Denon receiver is a good receiver for these Pioneer speakers. It also handles 5.2 so if you want to throw in another sub have at it! The receiver turned out to be very user-friendly. My wife, who was at first skeptical of spending money on a home theater system has fallen in love with this system. She uses the Bluetooth with an iPhone to listen to music. I will also mention that I also connected my Galaxy S3 and my wife's Samsung tablet to the Receiver as well and they all worked. The receiver is connected to a PS4, Cable box, and a laptop computer that's using a VGA to HDMI converter. They all work just fine. They are displayed onto a 58" Panasonic Viera. The Denon's remote control is easy to use. Each input is named for convenience. For example there is no Input 1, 2, 3, etc. Instead they are labeled Cable/Sat, Game, Media Player, Blu-ray, etc. Switching to Bluetooth is accomplished by simply pressing Bluetooth. We used the system all weekend from movies to video games to music via Bluetooth and everything worked well. I don't think anybody will be disappointed with this receiver for its price. I also purchased a Panamax PM8-AV surge protector for my system for close to $100 at Best Buy.
Shipping and Handling was a little troublesome mainly due to my lack of knowledge so I hope this helps. Amazon shipped the receiver and the two surround speakers (come together in one box from Pioneer) through FedEx and everything else through UPS. I ordered everything together under one shopping cart purchase. However, I had 4 tracking numbers from two different shippers. Just know that if you order this system, for each email you receive from Amazon that allows you to "Track Package" you will have a different tracking number. Also note that these packages may ship from different shippers. Knowing that will prevent a lot of headaches. Here's how they shipped my items: FedEx had a tracking number for the Denon and another for the two surround speakers. UPS had one tracking number for the sub and center and one tracking number for the two towers. Everything arrived on the same day but it was a bit confusing. There was only one mildly damaged box but nothing inside was damaged and everything worked well.
If you want a 5.1 home theater system and are not sure what to buy, the Pioneer SP-PK52FS package with the Denon AVR-S500BT is a good combination. We watched The Boy in the Stripped Pajamas and it sounded better than most theaters I've been to. Like I said the volume produced by this combination is more than enough and very clean. I also purchased a 3 year $20 protection plan for the receiver from Amazon. When you add the item to your cart, the protection plan is automatically offered. I recommend this system to anybody who is looking for an excellent system at a fair price. I also recommend that you invest in a quality surge protector to protect your equipment. I lost an entry level Sony receiver a number of years ago because it was not plugged into a surge protector. If you buy this system I also recommend that you review each tracking number Amazon sends you as they may split this system into several packages. I hope this review helps.
