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.
Sony SSCS3 3-Way Floor-Standing Speaker (Single) - Black
  • Good build quality, it is a good size not too big not too small.
  • They work well for a medium sized apartment, they would also work well in large spaces or outside too. Great size and weight.
  • I recommend these for excellent listening and compact size. A good value for the money.
  • Great sound. Perfect size for what I needed them for.
  • It's fairly large in size, heavy and looks great. The sound comes across solid with no distortion.

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.
Sony SSCS3 3-Way Floor-Standing Speaker (Single) - Black
  • Great bass response for speakers this size. Medium and high frequencies really good too.
  • Sounds way better than the price. Good highs, miss and decent bass for the small sized woofer.
  • The treble was clean and articulate, the midrange was smooth and un-cluttered and the bass was solid and pure!
  • The sound quality is great, the mids are clear and punchy, I think these speakers would even be fine without the sub-woofer, but sometimes I wanna feel that bass.
  • They sound of a higher quality and provide superb clarity especially in the mid range and in the highs. They're perfect for audiophiles.

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.
Sony SSCS3 3-Way Floor-Standing Speaker (Single) - Black
  • Good sound quality, nice looking. Material seem to be top of the line.
  • The speaker feels very dense and well made. It look fantastic with or without the grill depending on what you want and it feel very solidly built.
  • This speaker has a smart black finish that blends with most contemporary interiors. The wood veneer also retains its shape well.
  • Mica Reinforced Cellular (MRC) fiber woofers are rigid, holding their shape even when moving at high pressure and speed.
  • The low/bass sound is adequate, but not great. Though I can hear the bass sound I “feel” sometime is missing. This is common with a small woofer.
