Pioneer CS-44 received them today!

Just received my first CS Series of speakers from Pioneer. I am listening to them in my home office now hooked up to a Kenwood KR-4600 receiver. At first I was not impressed. But the funny thing is, they began to grow on me. I felt they were warm and not as detailed as the HPM series but an extra boost on the treble control solved that. I don't know, kinda weird...Any way I oiled them up, used a Q-tip dipped in the oil and cleaned up the grills real nice. The're not mint but are in good shape. I plan on hooking tham up to my SX-3000 (SX-626) in the bedroom with a pair of HPM-40's. I hope they mate up nicely with the older Pioneer receiver.
I know the wattage rating (25 watts max) and the Ohms's (8 Ohms) 8" woofer and single tweeter. The grills screw on. I don't know much else...Anyone know the frequency response? Year made, Etc?

Thanks for the post Randy,
Wow...I thought that they had a nice deep end to them but didn't think they reached down that deep. The more I listen to them more I like!

The more I listen to them the less I like them. Sound dull and and just not very good. Very nice cabinets though. Considering replacing the woofers and tweeters.
