    This is the best center channel in its price class

    Andrew Jones has created a master piece with this center channel at this price point. The 4 inch drivers are amazingly smooth, create adequate bass for their size, and represent sound neutrally with very little coloration of sound. The crossover in this speakers is amazing at this price range, the build quality is extremely well done, and the imaging of sound from this speaker is amazing for its price. This speaker takes about 30 or so hours to break in but after it does its a one of a kind in this price range for its accuracy, vocal representation, and overall neutral sound quality. I've owned Klipsch, Atlantic, and Polk Center speakers that didn't even come close to the overall all sound quality of this Andrew Jones designed center channel. A note to buyers of this Pioneer center channel is to get the best out of this speaker you need to feed it power. This is a 6ohm speaker and at minimum it needs a 100 watts of power to bring out it full potential. I have this center channel paired with Martin Logan Motion 10's that were $1000.00 for the pair and its sound quality is equal if not slightly better that Martin's believe it or not. Amazing build quality and sound puts this speaker at a level that you would need to spend 5 to 10 times its asking price to get better quality. For $69.99 its got to be the best price to performance ratio center channel on the market today. Its so good I'm going to buy the Andrew Jones designed Pioneer FS52 tower speakers that are now only $87.49 a piece to sonically match this center channel. Read all the reviews on the internet as they compare these speakers with names like Aperion, Focal, B&W, Paradigm, etc. and they all agreed that this Pioneer is so close in audiophile quality to these companies entry level speakers that there is no justification to spend the extra money to buy them. Again they reference these companies entry level speaker which are anywhere from $300 - $750 dollars. The Andrew Jones design Pioneers were so close in quality to them that they just couldn't justify spending the extra money to buy the BIG NAME BRAND entry level Speakers. Buy these speakers while they are still available and laugh your way all the way to the back as others spend their hard earned money for the same quality but 5 to 10 times the price. Andrew Jones and Pioneer have shown the market place that you don't have to spend a fortune to get excellent performing speakers....

    The entire Pioneer speaker line-up is such an incredible bargain and this center channel speaker is no exception. I had a decent, mid-priced, soundbar before upgrading to the Pioneer system and right away I noticed how much easier it is to understand dialogue with the SP-C22. The difference is night and day. With the Pioneer speakers, I can keep the volume at a more comfortable level and still understand every word. I would often have to ride the remote before, turning up the volume when an actor is speaking, and turning down the volume when the onscreen action gets going. Not anymore. This speaker is very well-designed and sounds like something you would expect to pay much more for. If you have the room for a proper 5.1 setup, skip the soundbar and start with a Pioneer "Andrew Jones" system.

    My center speaker was an old Polk Audio speaker that was starting to sound a little muffled. My son was visiting and wanted a new center speaker for his system and settled on this one. In order to check it out, we hooked it up my my system, and I was impressed enough that I left his in my system and went to Best Buy and bought him another to take with him. I would like the highs to be a little more pronounced, but it is sounding better every day. I recommend this speaker if you want good sound without spending a fortune.

    The sound quality on all of these Andrew Jones designed Pioneer speakers is amazing. This unit centers my 7.1 surround sound system and the clarity of the front channel sound is excellent for my home setup in a medium-sized apartment. Highly recommended.

    It's a great bang for the buck. Accurate sounding. If I hadn't heard the Klipsch Reference Premiere series, I wouldn't have returned this.

    Every review indicated that these speakers and their matching cohorts were a very reasonably priced way to achieve a nice surround/music sound. I am very pleased with the quality, sound, and look of this matching set. I purchased the center, main floor speakers and the bookshelf/surround speakers as a matching set.
