What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Pioneer SP-FS52 Andrew Jones Designed Floor standing Loudspeaker
  • I didn't think they would be THIS good when I received them because they are a little smaller in size than I thought they would be. To my surprise, these are amazing.
  • It is a great value speaker. I am very pleased with its performance and its quality. Just be aware or the large size.
  • The towers are well made and in fact are surprisingly heavy.
  • These speakers are of a descent size and weight so if space is an issue you may want to go a different route.
  • They are fairly large, but seem to blend in well in our living room making them almost unobtrusive if it weren't for the beautiful music coming from them.

  • These speakers sound great and look great. Also, they are very heavy.
  • The cabinet size is compact, the magnetic speaker covers are great, so ease to remove and replace.
  • Pleased! These speakers are solid and have weight to them.
  • Received on Sunday morning, open the box, heavy/solid speakers!
  • They are in a ridiculously large and heavy factory box, and it will cost a pretty penny to return them.

What customers say about "Audio"
Pioneer SP-FS52 Andrew Jones Designed Floor standing Loudspeaker
  • I have the complete set. Love them! Power and clarity at all levels and they look great!
  • Paired these with 2 larger speakers and 2 powered subs. A perfect combo
  • I absolutely love these speakers. The bass has that deep, quality bass that you can only get with a full sized speaker without being at all boomy or over powering (I have these connected to my Onkyo without a subwoofer, which really isn't needed).
  • The rest of the frequency spectrum has a really good, natural sound to it. I can listen to these speakers all night without getting exhausted as I would with cheaper, less naturally sounding speakers.
  • Ok sounding for the price. Would pay more for better sound
  • I compared this speaker and the Onkyo SKF-4800, i found the onkyo speakers to have more details in the highs. mids sound good in both speakers, a bit bright in the onkyo but nothing harsh.
Elac Debut F5 Tower Speakers (Each) Bundle
  • Sound is lovely with classical, great balance through all the octaves, not strident at all (silk dome tweeter, not metal!), good bass extension AND lower octaves tunefullness.
  • Horns sound just right- bright and sometimes brassy but not "scratchy" or "digital".
  • Room filling sound, balanced, clear, detailed and even across the spectrum, with plentiful, rich bass.
  • Sweet and very detailed sound, very nice bass without a sub. Would strongly recommend them.
  • They do sound good at high enough levels of volume, but not so much at lower volumes.

What customers say about "Features"
Pioneer SP-FS52 Andrew Jones Designed Floor standing Loudspeaker
  • Towers and center channel look great with grills off
  • I like that you can take the grills off, as I'd rather see the drivers.
  • The cabinet is well made, the terminals of high quality.
  • Speaker grills have partially turned purple, even in a room with blackout curtains and seldom direct sunlight.
  • Veneer is very cheap quality, already peeling in the corners after 9 months of delicate handling.
Elac Debut F5 Tower Speakers (Each) Bundle
  • I have been extremely satisfied with their use on radio, hi-fi, studio midi gear and several other applications.
  • The materials used seem pretty good and they do sound really crisp, clear, and lifelike.
  • Attractive outlook design and high quality sound performance.
  • I love the modern look and the build quality seems exceptional.
  • They look nice, have a very good quality to them, and they sound fantastic.
