The Pioneer S-81 floorstanding speakers feature Pioneer's very best technology for a stunning sound quality.
Designed and engineered at their dedicated speaker design centre in Paris, the S-81 speakers have had time and technology lavished upon them.
Weighing a hefty 25.8kg each, the S-81's come with superbly solid and rigid cabinets. The dense cabinet construction is finished off with luxurious real wood veneer. Two unique Pioneer technologies further help these speakers stand out. AFAST (Acoustic Filter Assisted System Tuning) and Acoustic Balance Drive (ABD) help eliminate vertical standing waves. This provides a tighter, punchier bass and a clearer mid-range. The curved cabinets also happen to look a lot smoother as a happy coincidence of form meeting function.
When it comes to drive unit quality, the S-81s are amongst the best in their class. Right at the top is a riffle-type super tweeter. "Super" by name and nature as this treble unit stretches up to an incredible 100 kHz! Yes, that is way above what humans can hear but it does have a benefit, as lower frequencies don't sound as compressed. The result is smooth, fluid treble with an unforced nature and class-leading detail. This transparent treble is matched by the triple Aramid woofer cones. With one cone exclusively dedicated to mid-range and two for bass duties, the S-81 manages to offer both a lucid mid-range and a powerful bass response. With Aramid being so rigid yet light, the mid-range and bass have sublime detail with a powerful, consistent responsiveness that's usually the preserve of more expensive speakers.
Beautifully finished and even better sounding, the Pioneer S-81 is where form meets function for a winning design.
