These now-legendary bookshelf speakers designed by Andrew Jones are among the most recommended bang-for-buck speakers, and punch way above their price point. They have a warm, laid-back sound that may not immediately jump out at you in A-B tests, but at the same time does not become fatiguing over extended listening sessions.

These Andrew-Jones designed towers, like their bookshelf equivalents also from Pioneer, have received consistent praise from review sites. They are very well-rounded speakers with features not often found at this price point, although a few listeners find them too laid back in the midrange area.

The measurements will not factor in individual differences such as curves or other variations in the speaker shape. Do not use these measurements as an estimate of the internal speaker volume.
