This review is from: Pioneer SP-C22 Andrew Jones Designed Center Channel Speaker Single
Pros: Don't listen to the previous reviewer who stated that the polk cs10 is way better than this pioneer center channel. For the price this center channel can not be beat. I still own a polk cs 1 center channel and it can' t even come close to the musical reproduction of the Pioneer center. Read all over the internet as Cnet, Sound and Vision, HiFi, and many more praise this pioneer center and all of the second run of Andrew Jones built Pioneer Speaker. With my Yamaha and Harman Kardon receivers this C22 produces clear voices in movies, is very musical, lacks any coloration of sound, AND get LOWER than the polk frequency wise without sounding boomy or muddy. At a 6 ohms rating it is easily driven with even the basic of receivers on the market today. The 6-way crossover network literally destroys the crossover in the polk CS-1 and CS-10. The dual ported rear design was an excellent choice for getting these 4 inch long throw drivers to get deeper than most 5.25 inch drivers and to be more accurate in doing so. I own Polk Monitor 40s and the speaker cones barely move. The curved design reduces internal cancellation and the quality of the MDF board is superb at this price range. The silk dome tweeter in this center channel really shines but it does have just a slight sibilance to it at higher volumes. I bought this speaker for $69.00 and had a $30 coupon so it cause me just over 40 bucks... To anyone questioned the quality build and sound of this C22 center channel I recommend you buy it, try it, and I guarantee unless you are the pickiest of audiophiles you will not return it. Also if you are an audiophile why would you even be looking at a $100.00 center channel.
Cons: None at this price range.
Other Thoughts: Pioneer should have charged closer to $300.00 for this center because common consumers think paying more always means better quality. ( Joking!!! )READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Pioneer SW-8-K 100W Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: Great build quality,accurate and musical bass,small compact size,and good fine tuning capabilities
Cons: port chuffing at high volumes,plate amp gets very hot at 60% volume,no high level out back to front speakers,plate amp is unpowered for this 8 inch driver,short power cord
Other Thoughts: This sub is an excellent performer for its speaker size and small plate amp.I've played AVATAR and Billy JOEL+U2 blu ray concerts and the bass,kick drums,and low end piano notes sounded phenominal.This sub plays fast bass notes with extreme accurancy.Explosions,gun fire,car crashes etc. sound so life like it feels like they are in my room.At times I feel this sub sounds like it has a 10 inch driver!!! I own a Polk PSW 505 and for music I would definitely use the Pioner SW-8 as it gets low enough,has fast accurate bass response,and doesn't get muddy or over ring while playing at higher volumes like my POLK.This sub wont bust the walls down but it does get loud enough to impact your chest and rattle objects in my 15x15 bedroom.Don't think you can find a better overall performing sub in this price range PERIOD! $70.00 bucks to my front door and I feel like I stole it.Buy one while you can as this is the best deal for a quality sub that out performs it price tag!!!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill - Pellucid HD Series High Speed HDMI Cable - 6 Feet
Pros: Heavy duty,ordered 4 and all worked perfectly,fast shipping,and well packaged
Other Thoughts: I still cant understand why people buy the "NAME BRAND" HDMI cables and these Rosewill HDMI cables perform just as good for 1/10 of the price.4 cables cost me less than $30.00 and they are excellent products...Buy them you will not be disappointed!!!READ FULL REVIEW
