During a recent trip to Best Buy I wandered into one of their two sound rooms where one of the Blue Shirts was giving a home theater demo to a customer. Never one to pass up a Best Buy "demo," I quietly let myself in and enjoyed the show. After what seemed like forever - seriously a home theater demo should be five minutes max - the lights came back on and the customer left sans any home theater equipment. Rather than ask me if I needed assistance, the Best Buy employee walked out. I browsed the room in silence and came upon a pair of loudspeakers I'd never seen or heard before. I instantly recognized the name, for Pioneer has been with us since the beginning of time, but yet I'd never heard of their $99.99 bookshelf speakers, the SP-BS21-LR, before. Rather than ask for a "demo," I grabbed a box and headed for the register. I mean, come on, $100 for a pair Pioneer branded bookshelf speakers, how could anyone resist?
