Deal Details

UPDATE: Amazon matched price, then TigerDirect matched free shipping. Take your pick.

Well-reviewed Andrew Jones designed Pioneer home theater speakers for great price at TigerDirect.

I have seen several threads about a couple of the speakers but I decided to put them together in one thread. These prices are as good as I have seen in current searches and better than even the previous models that are still out there. They may not be as good as the deals in the fall when they cleared out the old models though. It's just the best I see right now by far. For those not familiar, I'd say these are a very high end budget line if that makes sense. Way better than the tiny speakers you usually see in packaged home theater systems but not pro speakers.

TigerDirect links:

Bookshelf pair SP-BS22-LR [tigerdirect.com] $90
Center SP-C22 [tigerdirect.com] $70
Subwoofer SW-8MK2 [tigerdirect.com] $90
Floorstanding (tall) SP-FS52 [tigerdirect.com] $100
I had to login and go to checkout to see the prices. My checkout image: http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/5629/tigerdirect2.png

Bookshelf SP-BS22 - http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SP-...372&sr=1-4

Center SP-C22 - http://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SP-...372&sr=1-3

Best Buy has the bookshelves at $40 higher, the center at $30 higher, the subwoofer at $70 higher, and the floors at $25 higher!

By the way, newegg had some good deals on Pioneer home theater speakers lately but they no longer carry them (previous models discontinued and new models not carried).

You can still see all the old models along with the new at Pioneer's site - http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/Speakers/Home+Theater+Speakers

These appear to be the same price on Amazon now. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/...PDKIKX0DER

Really tempting since I have two SW-8's already, but I just setup my Take Classic set. These look to me much better, though. Only concern is that I have cats that might destroy the grills.

They made the center channel woofers smaller and it doesn't sound as good. The did away with the 5 1/4" bookshelf speakers and now only offer the small, 4" model. The grilles on these are very cheap. Thin fabric with small plastic posts that are very easy to break. Just like anything else now days, Pioneer cut some corners with a new model line. Speakers still sound about the same, at least the ones that weren't changed, but now the towers are sold individually, where as the previous towers were sold as a pair. Just another way to raise the price. Thumbs down on the new line.Frown
What about the subwoofer mk2 better of worse than old line?

What the hell. They did this just to undermine my deal! Smilie
Seriously, I just checked it, lol. Maybe they are actually price matching. Ok, time to update the buddy I emailed for the better free shipping deal.

The sub appears to be the same, outside of the cabinet apparently has a different material used. I own SW8 and have the SW8MK2 arriving from Amazon tomorrow. Not sure why I bought it, but used some of those Kindle cards from the Best Buy Mastercard deal earlier this week. $45 for the SW8MK2 was too good to pass up.nod

Some advice please? Smilie I've been keeping my eye on the FS52 (floor standing) models for a couple weeks and just yesterday (!) got a pair of these from BB for $89 each for Open Box, being that at the time I didn't wanna deal with TD's shipping rate. I have yet to (re)open the box. Should I return the Open Box and get them brand new from Amazon? Any of you think it's worth the hassle?

I would just keep the ones you have, provided they aren't damaged and play fine.

Good deal. Have been waiting for the center to go on sale again since I already have the tower 52's. Printed the amazon price got best buy to price match and had a $10 reward zone credit. $66 out the door thanks slickdeals.

Now I just need to find a deal on a Outlaw M8 or if possible a HSU STF-2 to finish the 3.1 setup.

i would get it new on amazon. i assume u get charged tax at BB and no tax on amazon so they end up being the same.

i rather go through the hassle with a ease of mind that there is any chance of nothing wrong with it

Well not only would it cost more getting them from Amazon, but you also run the risk of them being damaged in transit. Damage to large speaker boxes happens quite often when shipped UPS. You can also get reward zone points for your BB purchase. Wink

OP is noob and doesn't know how to post stuff

"Best Buy has the bookshelves at +$40"

means that they are $40 more @ BB

you really want to start another argument huh..

What about how Best Buy received their shipment? Or how they take care of their packages? Have you seen some of the pictures people posted when they had TV sitting in the sideways position?

Also the costs is possibly the same for him whether he gets charged tax on Amazon or not. BB tax ~7% = $95 for open box vs $100 new on Amazon. Reward zone points is worthless unless you already spend hundreds of dollars at Best Buy already for their overpriced products.
