I have begun speaker shopping for a modest 2 channel setup (will be moving my current AVR to the living room and updating my HT with a new AVR) and, frankly, was considering speakers quite a bit more expensive than these Pioneers until I came across several references and reviews to them by reputable people. While I am not opposed to standmount speakers (I have 5 of them in my HT), I was considering exploring floorstanders. Given the glowing review of the standmounts here, I wonder (knowing full well they have not been reviewed) if it is a reasonable assumption to expect the FL51 versions of this speaker line to basically sound like the BS41s under review but with more low frequency extension. This line does not appear available at any local stores for me to give them even a casual listen, so any insight you might have would be appreciated.

Thank you.

I cannot believe you didn't notice that there are NO high frequencies. None. And I tried two different sets of these speakers, which were identical.

Yeah, the midrange is nice. Yeah the bass is great. But there are no highs ... to the point of unpleasant notice-ability.

The lack of highs is noticeable. But these speakers sound amazing in my small room and with the right equipment. They are smooth and absolutely non-fatiguing. At the same time there is enough detail to keep me interested in the music (i.e. they are not boring). The associated equipment is very important. Paired with a Kenwood CD player they sound great. I tried using a Bel-Canto DAC2 as my source and it sounded terrible.

They replaced my tower speakers (Paradigm Reference Studio 100 V2). The Paradigm's were too big for my room and no matter what I did caused listening fatigue.
