I got the Pioneer SP-BS21-LR an older design by Andrew Jones at a great price a while back and returned them quickly. The were dark and unnatural sounding and I like cheap speakers.
I rather like my SP-BS22-LR's. They are on my desk with a TubeCube integrated and Schiit Modi3 DAC as my daily driver. Perhaps they are a bit on the dark (East Coast) scale but I find them eminently listenable for long periods without fatigue. As always, I respect that YMMV and that's what makes this such an interesting hobby.
