Hi there guys. I'm really looking forward to buy Pioneer's latest 5.1 speaker package SP-PK52FS designed by legendary audio engineer Andrew Jones. I own a 2009 Kuro plasma that sounds incredibly well for a TV so pretty much I wanted to get these recently launched 2012 speakers.

But everyone is saying "oh no, Pioneer is crap you should get a Focal Sib& Co or a Monitor Audio Vector"

I'd really like to know what you have to say about this. They will be matched with a Yamaha RX-V473 AV receiver to play surround concerts/movies from Blu ray. Is just that sometimes I feel these new Pioneer speaker package is being discarded just because Focal or Monitor Audio are more "luxury" - but just because of that.

Please help me guys!

I have owned many a speaker in my day - I can tell you that Pioneer is a
solid deal, for some good sounding speakers.smile.gif
