I don't know much about the 822K, but if issues were to arise, we are here to help. If the product is defective, you can always return it.Also read some posts folks having issues with the 822k and just wondering if I am doing the right thing here.
Low budgets are fun because they are challenging.I know my budget is a sliver of most on here but is this going to be it for me as far HT goes. Probly not many upgrades for me in the near future. Any thoughts? I appreciate any feedback.
I think you are most definitely doing the right thing. The BS-41 will blow out any HTIB and any competitor well beyond it's price point. They are excellent performers for the money.
You probably don't know how to read measurements (more accurately what good measurements look like) but this is as good as it get's at your price point and price points far above it.

I don't say this often, but I agree with John Atkinson.The measured performance of Pioneer's SP-BS41-LR would not be out of place in a $1000/pair speaker, let alone one costing just $150/pair. Color me impressed.
