The replacements for the SP-BS21-LR, called SP-BS22-LR, are available for $99 at Best Buy (at least; until tomorrow, you get a $15 gift card if you spend at least $100 at Best Buy). Robert Reina compares the two in his review of the SP-BS22-LR at http://www.stereophile.com/content/pioneer-sp-bs22-lr-loudspeaker. He also reviewed the larger SP-BS41-LR (http://www.stereophile.com/content/pioneer-sp-bs41-lr-loudspeaker) but did not (as far as I remember) directly compare them to the others.
