Quite something else, Lee. I could use those in my back yard for our summer BBQs. I wonder where those speakers are now?

I love looking at the ads, like the 4 pg. spread given to the Pioneer CT-F1250 and RT-909. I will have to read more about Paul K..

Nando.

Some Japanese stereo geek has probably got them in a special built room complete with a story of how his uncle intercepted them as they were headed to the dumpster, and they had to fab a fake set so as not to tip off the suits that had decided they did not fit Pioneers strategic corporate plan for that year after the Expo....
