Pioneer SP-BS21-LR Bookshelf Loudspeakers Pair
When youre looking for bookshelf speakers, the desire is always the same: to find high-quality, great-sounding speakers that dont require a co-signer tobuy. And it wouldnt hurt if they could look spectacular sitting on your shelf as well.
Thats always been the challenge. Until now. Introducing the SP-BS21-LR Bookshelf Speakers from Pioneer.
70 Years of Audio Firsts
These speakers come with a remarkable pedigree of over 70 years of Pioneer audio heritage and industry firsts. Like every speaker we build, these areengineered to offer incredible design and amazing sound quality. But then thats exactly what youd expect from speakers designed by internationallyrenowned speaker engineer Andrew Jones. As Pioneers Chief Speaker Engineer, Andrew has designed some of the worlds finest loudspeakers, some costing asmuch as $70,000. Now he has brought his high-end expertise and passion to the creation of this affordable bookshelf speaker. And while the price isconsiderably lower than some of his other efforts, the expectation and delivery of accurate sound reproduction is the same.
Thinking Out Of The Box
Typically youll find most bookshelf speakers not only come in a box, they are a box. And while that might be better for production costs, it isnt betterfor sound reproduction. The SP-BS21-LR speakers utilize a true curved cabinet design. So besides the aesthetics being considerably more pleasing, thisstiffer design reduces standing sound waves inside the cabinet, resulting in high-performance and exceptional sound quality.
As you look at them, youll also notice our unique speaker grills. Theyre beautiful and elegant in their own right, but not for their own sake. Thisvisually pleasing design also has a specific function, which is doing a superior job of protecting the speaker drivers.
The Inside Story
The job of the cross-over in a speaker is to break the audio signal into low, high and sometimes mid-range frequencies. Its an important job, and it usescircuitry like inductors and capacitors to accomplish it. Much of the competition uses an extremely simple, low-cost cross-over made up of a singlecapacitor and inductor. The Pioneer SP-BS21-LR utilizes a sophisticated 6 component high-quality cross over. The reasoning is simple: we do it because itsone more way of insuring high-quality sound that makes its presence known.
