Speakers On The Cheap: $50 A Pair

The Pioneer SP-BS21-LR, only $50 at Newegg.

Newegg has the Pioneer SP-BS21-LR speakers for half price, $49.99 a pair, with promo code EMCNGNH24 through March 8. (I just ordered a pair.)
This speaker series, by designer Andrew Jones, has gotten a lot of attention.
Here’s what Home Theater Review said about the SP-BS21-LR:

The SP-BS21-LR’s high frequency performance is quite good, possessing a smooth, largely indifferent demeanor that has a bit of natural sparkle, which is surprising given the speaker’s asking price. In terms of soundstage the SP-BS21-LR is, again, surprisingly able to create an intimate stage for the performances to exist within. Is it laser focused? No, but the definition it does have will have you scratching your head wondering how more expensive speakers manage to do worse.
