Thiel Owners


Guys-

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!

Nice score! Both Cary Audio and Pass Labs are sonic matches for the CS 2.4 model.  What other gear rounds out your system?

Happy Listening!

Agreed- once your system is dialed-in, no need for any further upgrade(s).

Happy Listening!
Thiel’s dialed in and set up are magical indeed ….glad to be among fellow Thielites (?)..ha…. Totally agree bettlemania…good to just sit back and enjoy sometimes.
jafant, my analogue is Rega P8 alpheta 3 mc and rega aria 3 phono stage, my digital is a Cary DMS 700 (r2r ladder dac and streamer) both of which I love. Those I bought new so they were pricey but they are really sweet and hope to have a good long while.
I will let you know if I move forward on 2.4 xo upgrades, probably be a bit as budget is toast and like beetlemania says good to just listen for awhile in between upgrade urges.

Thank you for citing the rest of your system. the Rega P8 is an excellent TT as is the Cary audio DMS 700. To date the DMS has been a great product for Cary. Did you own the 500 or 600 models?
Luckily, the CS 2.4 is not difficult to drive nor match (sonically).

Happy Listening!
@jmbumgarner01 Here are CS2.4 crossover access instructions from Rob Gillum:

The crossover can be accessed through the passive radiator opening. The base is not removable, as it is screwed, and glued. To access the crossover, you must remove the passive radiator screws and let the passive radiator drop into the cabinet. It can be rotated 90 degrees, and removed while servicing. To re-install the passive radiator, you can place your fingers at the surround, pressing outward to hold in place while re-installing the screws that hold bit in place.
