Well, I made the big purchase. I was on a budget, so I did the best I could... (although I went a little over budget... haha)

2 Pioneer Andrew Jones FS52's for the fronts, the Pioneer Sp-C22 for the center, Pioneer Sp-BS22's for the rears, Yamaha RX-V473 AVR, and a Klipsch SW-350 sub to top it off.


I'm so excited to get this all hooked up!

How'd I do? Should this combo sound ok?

Not to sound flip but one finds out when they hook things up, flip the on switch and dial the listening venue in to suit their personal tastes. I'm not able to find any real information on the "Andrew Jones FS52," so in the vein of encouragement, I'm sure you'll be pleased with your shopping efforts.

Haha, yeah they are simply the Pioneer FS52's. Andrew Jones just designed them.

I got that as I could find information but I couldn't find any tech information on the speakers themselves.

You have a real nice set up there - and the Phase 2 speakers are really nice

Also, the drivers are not off the shelf - they were also designed by Andrew Jones.

Thanks for the information. I appreciate it!

I know it won't compare with the $3000 + systems a lot of people have on here, but I just want something that will fill the room with quality sound, on a budget. smile.gifcool.gif

NealAtTheWheel I think that you will like your Pioneer speakers. When I was younger I used to have a pioneer center channel, two small pioneer surround speakers, two pioneer 15 inch woofers, and a pioneer dolby pro logic surround sound receiver. I thought that it sounded pretty good. have fun with your speakers.
