Pioneer's Speaker Bar Built for Those Who Care About Sound

Andrew Jones Designed Speaker Bar Made for Sound Quality, Not Just Cosmetics

Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. today unveiled the Speaker Bar system (SP-SB23W), uniquely designed by legendary speaker engineer Andrew Jones to deliver excellent full-range sound from a small, simple solution audio package. Made for consumers who care about audio quality, the Speaker Bar features a composite wood curved cabinet, six individual speakers, six amplifiers (independent for each speaker) and an eight channel active digital crossover network. The combination of features offers a multitude of benefits to listeners including exceptional sound quality reproduction, wider off-axis response, higher power handling and increased dynamic headroom.

“Pioneer created a similar speaker bar in the late 90’s for conventional television sets and now we’re building the best sounding speaker bar for today’s flat panel televisions,” said Chris Walker, director of AV marketing and product planning for the Home Electronics Division of Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc. “Unlike most offerings, the new Speaker Bar is made of composite wood, a far superior material that makes a significant difference when it comes to sound quality.”

Designed for Sound

Pioneer’s Speaker Bar comes with an optical cable and wall mounts for convenient set-up and will be available in the fall with a suggested retail price of $399.
