Raising the Bar

For those who demand audio quality that lives up to their HD picture, Pioneer offers the new Speaker Bar System. Designed by internationally renowned speaker designer, Andrew Jones, this compact sound solution produces remarkable stereo imaging, wider off-axis response, and enhanced dynamic range. Its speaker cabinet is precision-crafted from composite wood, offering more controlled resonance and truer audio reproduction. Six individual speakers are each driven by their own dedicated amplifier and integrated by an active digital crossover network. This symphony of audio innovations all work together to help create a listening experience that will virtually transport you into the action on screen.

Andrew Jones Designed

Andrew Jones Designed for Those Who Care About Sound

Crafted by legendary speaker engineer Andrew Jones to deliver excellent full-range sound from a small, simple solution audio package. As Pioneer's Chief Speaker Engineer, Andrew has designed multiple lines of award winning loudspeakers ranging in price from $99 to $80,000 a pair. He is considered an audio master in the industry.

An Amplifier for Each Speaker and a Wireless Subwoofer

Pioneer SP-SB23W Speakerbar and Subwoofer System

Pioneer's Speaker Bar is powered by six individual amplifiers – one amplifier for each independent driver. The amps produce up to 28 Watts of power for increased audio dynamics and enhanced overall "headroom" at virtually any volume level. Handling the low frequencies is a wireless subwoofer, featuring a 6.5-inch driver that's powered by a built-in 50-Watt amplifier. Tuned to 42Hz (-10dB), the output level can be conveniently adjusted with the Speaker Bar remote.

Sonic Integration using Active Crossover Network

Sonic Integration using Active Crossover Network
To help optimize speaker response, vocal clarity and off-axis listening, Andrew Jones added a matching active digital crossover network to the Speaker Bar system. This network allows for higher order filter points, enhancing the audio transitions between the woofers and the tweeters.

System Smarts with Remote Control Learning Mode

System Smarts with Remote Control Learning Mode
While the Speaker Bar system includes a remote control unit, most people prefer to control everything with their favorite remote. That's why Pioneer gave the Speaker Bar a special learning mode that lets you quickly teach the system to respond to commands from any remote you choose.

True Resonance from a Composite Wood Cabinet

True Resonance from a Composite Wood Cabinet
Most sound bars on the market have enclosures made of plastic. Pioneer's Speaker Bar features a composite wooden cabinet enclosure with a special curved design, helping it resist the "flexing" that can occur when the speakers are at high volume. With its superior resistance to undesirable resonance, genuine wood provides more faithful sound reproduction.

Sonic Standard with Dolby Digital Decoding

Sonic Standard with Dolby Digital Decoding
Helping to ensure that the entertainment experience is rich and immersive, the Speaker Bar includes Dolby Digital Decoding. The standard in home theater systems, Dolby Digital Decoding delivers crisp, clean dialogue, excellent audio imaging, and powerful deep bass.

Three Sound Modes for Selective Listening

Three Sound Modes for Selective Listening
The Speaker Bar offers three sound modes: Movies, Music and Dialogue. The Movies mode enhances the dynamic, explosive sound characteristics of modern movies. The Music mode is optimized for the most natural reproduction of music. The Dialogue mode optimizes the quality of spoken words, while significantly reducing loud sequences, making it ideal for late night viewing.

Get Streaming Using Bluetooth Technology

Get Streaming Using Bluetooth Technology
Adding even more convenience to the Speaker Bar system is built-in Bluetooth technology. This advanced technology enables you to stream music wirelessly from your compatible smartphone or tablet. Immersive audio doesn't have to be complicated. Pioneer's Speaker Bar system is designed to make set-up simple. With minimal cables to connect and an easy subwoofer synchronization process, you'll be enjoying a remarkable entertainment experience in just minutes.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk!

Pros: Nice Appearance

Cons: AFter less than one years and perhaps a dozen uses; a pop began appearing, then, on about 14th use, nothing. No response after pop! Nothing; contacted Pioneer tech support and yes you guessed it they said,"sorry it out of warranty" Don't was the money on inferior electronics as well as poor customer service

Other Thoughts: You purchase this at your own peril!

1 out of 5 eggsSounds great but poor quality

Pros: Sounds fine.

Cons: Have had this sound bar for about 1.5 years and it already quit working. I watch TV maybe about 2-3 hours per week so it didn't have many hours of use. About 14 months in, it started making a loud popping noise right when you turned it on but then it would work fine. About a month after that started happening, the sound bar completely quit powering on. Despite the highly rated reviews, I would not recommend this product based on this problem in combination with the blue tooth issue many other users have reported.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Soundbar

Pros: Excellent sound, sub woofer, strong built quality with composite wood.

Cons: Cheaply made remote, Design of the sound bar is not attractive as other.

Other Thoughts: I have been having this sound bar for almost an year. I really enjoy the sound quality. Though no extra bells and whistles, pioneer focused just on deliver excellent sound. If you are OK with the sound bar size this would be an excellent choice.

5 out of 5 eggsBlueTooth issues has been fixed

Pros: As of January 2014, Pioneer acknowledged that all new models has had the BT issue fixed and older models will continue to receive free fix.

Price to performance ratio is spot on here. BTW this product can be found for $250 at another top brick and mortar store. For the price you can't beat the rich and detailed clarity this sound bar has.

Subwoofer blends in amazingly to the bar's speakers. This model really focus's on detail and sound quality. You can hear, very distinctively I might add, whispering and quiet talking without straining to hear.

Cons: No virtual surround or what most sound bars have which is fake surround that's still in front of you anyway. Rather to say it doesn't have that "wide space" or "airy" effect which really isn't much of a loss but depends on your listening desires.

The sub isn't powerful but again blends perfectly and adds much to the rich detail, you just won't feel the explosions. Because of it's careful blending, You also cannot move the subwoofer away from the sound bar itself because it will start to disassociate the sound. Best placement is right under the bar or behind it if possible to add that cabin gain effect.

Other Thoughts: Again the focus with this one is more sound quality and despite the rich detail, some will miss the oomph emphasis found in higher priced sound bars. This is what separates typical audiophiles and typical listeners as some have gotten used to the boosts of certain frequencies and sound fields that later become a preference or provide a quicker wow factor.

Subwoofer output can be fixed by taking the amp and sub into a larger enclosure with a tuned port (At 47hz to mimic the original) or 32 hz to go even deeper. Theoretically, you might also be able to use the built in amp's output wires into the high level input of a larger sub amplifier like a Dayton perhaps, to provide more output power yet still keep the original EQ'ing ...which also means you have to buy a sub capable of handling that power.....might be a fun DIY project for some.

Another option would be to just add another, more powerful subwoofer to go really deep but not sure how you would tap into audio to provide input unless your TV does RCA output at the same time as optical.

5 out of 5 eggsDo it anyway

Pros: Nice design
Easy to use
Simple install

Cons: Would be nice if the speaker feet were magnetic but they are designed to be positional for a reason. Not a con, just a suggestion.

Other Thoughts: I read a comparison on some site that said this was top choice for sound bars then I read reviews about the Bluetooth not working. I contacted newegg prior to purchasing and no one could tell me if it was fixed in this batch.

So I ordered the unit anyway. Right out of the box I tested Bluetooth and it worked fine, not to mention the sound was amazing. I connected the woofer and tv and it sounds outstanding.

Looks like the Bluetooth is fixed and this product is now #1 again.

1 out of 5 eggsBluetooth problems!

Pros: I don't know yet...
Customer service was responsive in coordinating fixing the unit.
It has gotten great reviews for the price.

Cons: Bluetooth didn't work at all so I shipped it back. This is a common problem in the systems.

Many systems also had the problem that if bluetooth streaming did work, it was only captured the right audio (not the left audio)

Other Thoughts: It's really big for a sound bar. Really big.

2 out of 5 eggsWARNING - Don't buy this YET

Pros: Sounds sooo clean! For the price you really are getting the best sound bar that is available in this price range. CNET gave it 4.5 stars for a reason...

Cons: Bluetooth doesn't work properly. This is my reason for the 2 egg review. I'll be happy to change my rating to 5 eggs once this is fixed. I called Pioneer and they said that the issue is with ALL units. If you are interested in this sound bar I don't want to discourage you. I would just wait a few weeks so that you know that you aren't purchasing a defective unit that you will have to ship in for repairs or have to exchange.
