Pioneer SP-SB23W review

 

Pioneer was once king of the budget speaker market, offering a host of car and home audio speakers that pumped up the volume for a pittance. However, in more recent years, the company has found its numbers in the entry-level market slipping behind a...

Warm, detailed sound signature ; Musical bass response ; Integrates well with all content ; Convenient setup and design

Bluetooth connection spotty/possible stereo issues ; Treble is slightly tinny on occasion

The system’s rich and clear sound signature, ample stereo spread, and musical low end provided just the right boost of sound quality…

Review: Pioneer SP-SB23W sound bar

 

Wood construction Pioneer sound bar impresses

Wood build for resonance- Good, even volume- High accuracy sound reproduction

Large speaker bar- Problematic installation- Known (fixable) Bluetooth issues

Pioneer has been heavily invested in home audio for decades. Couple that expertise with the predilection for flat screen televisions to have equally flat-sounding speakers, and the fit seems obvious. Couple a television-oriented sound bar with wirele

Excellent Soundbar

 

I have been having this sound bar for almost an year. I really enjoy the sound quality. Though no extra bells and whistles, pioneer focused just on deliver excellent sound. If you are OK with the sound bar size this would be an excellent choice.

Excellent sound, sub woofer, strong built quality with composite wood

Cheaply made remote, Design of the sound bar is not attractive as other

DO NOT BUY

 

First time I've had a bad refurb through Newegg, but I'm sure I'll probably steer clear of them for a while now as this has put a sour taste in my mouth. I suppose I'll try contacting Pioneer directly to see if they'll do anything about it, but I'm not...

Great sound through the soundbar

Apparently the bluetooth sync issues between the soundbar and the subwoofer (which are heavily documented on other sites) have not been resolved. It worked just long enough for me to throw away the original box, which (of course!) Newegg needs in order...

Beautiful Sound

 

Excellent sound and quality. Bluetooth is nice as well, but blows the TV speakers out of the water. Not even close ; The Movie, Music and Conversation modes are nice. It almost seems like besides an EQ adjustment they move the sub crossover

I wish it had some indication of how high the volume was turned up

Pioneer soundbar

 

They should come up with a way of making the subwoofer connection wired from the soundbar to avoid sync issues.

Very nice looking product ; Sound is awesome

The wireless sub keeps on losing sync

Great Sound and High Quality

 

I got this as a refurbished unit and it looks brand new. Prior problems with bluetooth connectivity have been worked out. My Pioneer soundbar connects well with the Ipad in its dock 35 feet away

1. Crisp sharp sound with adequate bass ; 2. Solid wood housing - not plastic ; 3. Trainable remote so you don't have 10 remote controls to watch TV ; 4. Wireless bass you can put behind a chair or couch ; 5. Good bluetooth range ; 6. Great value at...

Poor cord management. The way this soundbar mounts does not allow for hidden cord management. It would have been nice to have some recess to hide the excess power cord. I wrapped the excess cord around the soundbar to help hide it. Otherwise it works...

Great Sound

 

I had a plastic Samsung soundbar with sub woofer, and the difference is super. The Pioneer wins hands down.

Wow, sound is awesome. Great bass and it's adjustable ; For the price, I'd highly recommend it

The remote is small, but I like that, the less buttons for me the better. It gets the job done
