Can anything compete with these for 199 bucks delivered?

I was running these until quite recently. They're definitely good speakers, but the Australia tax kind of kills the deal in my opinion. I got mine used for $90 and at that price they're certainly worth it.

 

I upgraded to DALI Zensor 1's. They're fairly frequently available new for $236 shipped - and while I'm still running them in my early impressions have been that they are a considerable step up from the BS22's for my tastes.

Hello

 

I recently hooked up a pair of mine with a modest 300B SET amp. I thought the sound was most listenable. The slightly loose bass control of the amp actually helped to fill in the bass a touch. It worked well with LP and CD.

 

The Pioneer has a very natural sound balance, if that is important to you. Other models, with a bit more treble lift, might sound more exciting. Comparing the response with a Dali Zensor 1 that has been suggested above, the lift in the Dali treble is easy to see.

You can also see how the Pioneer's port (in red) provides full amplitude support at its tuned frequency.

 

I hope this is interesting, regards,

Grant
