Thiel Owners


I just scored a sweet pair of CS 2.4SE loudspeakers. Anyone else currently or previously owned this model?
Owners of the CS 2.4 or CS 2.7 are free to chime in as well. Thiel are excellent w/ both tubed or solid-state gear!

Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
Unsound, or the 3.5 with the coax from the 3.7 and a pair of sealed sub woofers.
If Jim was still alive we would have had CS 7.3s, if i recall it was in his plans.
I was told that its coax would have had smaller drivers than the 3.7, suitable for crossing to smaller diameter lower midranges such as in the model 7; and would have trickled down to his 2.7 instead of the 3.7 coax.
@tomthiel I recall you also wrote the 7.3 coax would have had a mechanical crossover. Carbon diaphragms, sealed bass and top shelf passive parts would have made for an absolute world beater.
Beetle - I'm not sure how much of that is correct - coming from different sources over time. I said mechanical crossover, but was enlightened to the contrary. Also the carbon diaphragm idea was countered by machined aluminum / beryllium alloy. And the sealed bass might have been my speculation based on my knowledge of Jim's fundamental bias. I never spoke with him about it, and my input comes from three sources with their own reads on the prospects. Even though his illness was kept secret from all of us, he knew he was dying; so the 7.3 may have been mostly speculative. But it seems it was what he was working on at the end.
