Pioneer SP-PK21BS - Finally decided and booked my speakers !


Guys I wanted to thank all of you for pointing me in the right direction. without this forum's help I wdnt have been able to make an informed decision and wd have ended up buying something that i wd have regretted. I remember I was going in for the Onkyo 3300 or the Harman kardon 133 but thanks to the guidance here I decided to audition them both and when I heard them I knew they were not what i had dreamt music would sound like when coming out of Rs 20k setup. I decided to explore more and finally I have booked the following.

Yamaha 667 AVR and Pioneer SP-PK21BS speaker set.

The Pioneers are a new kid on the block but they have made a stunning debut on the world stage. I was very curious about these speakers ever since cnet declared them even better than the Energy take Classic 5.1 which is a huge thing coming from cnet guys given how impressed they have been with the Energy Takes ever since their launch.

However there was no way I cd audition these speakers in India as I dont think anyone in India has them yet so I asked a friend of mine who stays in US to guide me. He went over to audition the Pioneers and he was so impressed that he ended up buying them for himself right there This guy is an audiophile and he knows his music better than I do so if something could impress him to that extent I knew it was good enough for me. Moreover we share the same taste in music having grown up together so I was even more sure about these speakers.My friend could not stop praising these speakers and said that they are the best speakers he has heard below the $1000 range and that's a big big thing for him to say as he is not the one to use words like these lightly!

To cut a long story short I booked my speakers today in Bombay at a very tempting price and am now eagerly waiting for my AVR and the speakers to reach me. The next 5 weeks wait is going to be so tough

Would keep you guys updated about it and would also post a detailed review once I get my dream stuff in my hands...

Cheers Guys !

congratulations mate.. nice to hear that..finally end of tiresome searching..

I am in a same boat and trying to decide between ETC and Pioneer SP-PK21BS.. but unfortunately I dont have anyone to ask for audition..

1.Is it worth to go for a new model compared to well established model?
2.It is safe to go for a model which is not launched in India and nor chances in near future?
3.what about service part?
4.big size???

I have searched reviews and it has been liberally praised by CNET but every other site has quoted their words..
there are no genuine owner's reviews.
I request you to share your friend's experience in detail as your answer will help me to decide..

may be other members can advise..
