I know these were on sale for $10 less earlier this year, but this is about as low as these typically go.

Almost unarguably the absolute best value for speaker you can buy. I'm currently sitting on deals building a 5.0 setup so I was excited to see this drop so soon again. Pretty sure this was in response to Best Buy dropping it to the same price. But at Amazon no tax =]

What's up with people who recommend something that performs "better" for 3.5x the price? Clearly you're not getting the concept here.

Also, while powered monitors might be a more convenient option for a 2.0 desktop setup - they're really not the way to go for a 5.1 setup, or even a 2.1 setup, for anyone who is likely to be looking for advice in this forum.
Well, I am just suggesting an alternative, for those who might go for it. Just read the post above mine and you will see the relevance of my post. I didn't thumb down or said OP's deal is bad. For little more money, there is a better speaker out there and it has amp built in. It may work out for those who just want to put stereo speakers next to TV without needing an external amp/AVR. I can just take Analog RCA out from my TV and connect to those JBL's and done.

Besides, $150 is not 3.5x of $89.99. The price at amazon is per speaker, not a pair.
EDIT: my bad. Its priced per pair, so JBL's are 3X price.

Those JBL's are 3x the price... I wouldn't call that "a little more"

I bet if you teamed that up with the Pioneer SW-8MK2 100-Watt Powered Subwoofer it would be pretty sweet.

it's definitely pretty decent.. the sub doesn't get that low though...

There's a great thread at AudioKarma.org [audiokarma.org] regarding these speakers, already fifteen pages long.

Maybe for you. Amazon charges sale tax in 24% of US states and that number is rising.

Actually that's Wrong, 89.99 gets you a pair of bookshelves. Just to clear that up for everyone else.

Spend a little more and get the BIC F12, it's actually on sale right now, and it's Worth the extra money.

I'd search craigslist for a used pair of paradigm, b&w, Epos etc but that's just me. We are all nitpicking anyway these are nice little speakers. Also anyone who reads high end stereo speaker reviews already knows they have to be taken with a grain of salt. Its all subjective and written with the intent to entertain and make you feel good about your purchase. You will never ever see blind tests. Every speaker is light airy full has an amazing sound stage and blows you away for the price Wink

There's a very long but very informative thread about Pioneer's Andrew Jones series speakers at Audioholics.com. I have the towers, center, and a set of last year's BS-41 for surrounds and I absolutely love them. The BS-22s get very good reviews, overall, on the linked thread. I will eventually snag a pair of 22s as rear surrounds and use my 41s for 2.1 in another room.

Total audio noob here. How essential is a subwoofer if I pair these with a receiver?

I've got a pair of the first generation Pioneer BS-41 speakers and SW-8 sub in a 2.1 setup. Combined with a Denon AVR-1612 picked up for $90 on clearance. This setup sounds real nice for the price, in my small home office/workshop. When working from home debugging code, I sometimes listen to the Pioneers for hours, and so the more laid back highs are a better fit than some of the brighter speakers which can sound harsh over extended listening, expecially with one of the speakers only 4 feet from my ear!

It's not a requirement. Especially if using them with a computer. But if you plan on using them in the living room as a home theater setup then you will want a sub
