I've a pair of Pioneer CS-99a's.
They're special to me because they were the speakers that were part of my first "real" stereo system that I bought back when I was 16, shortly after I got my first "real" job.
The system included a Pioneer SA-7700 integrated amplifier...
...a Pioneer turntable the model number of which escapes me, and a Pickering phono cartridge the model number of which also escapes me.
I was bit by a bit of nostalgia four or five years ago and purchased a near mint pair of them from a local guy off Craig's List.
I fired 'em up and found they were just as fun in 2006 as they were back in 1976.
I have 'em in my office which is rather small, but that works to the advantage of the 15 inch woofers which are in sealed enclosures. Just as they're starting to fall off, the room gain starts picking up so they integrate very well.
So that's my vintage speaker story.
