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!
sdecker and all - I gave bad information re 2.4 count. The correct count is around 4500 or 2250 pairs plus around 125 pairs of SEs. Let's please reset our thinking on the CS2.4 success, it was a winner. Thank you for your detail on 611-612 as still being original Lexington production.
Tom, Thanks for the clarification. I am pretty sure mine are numbered 4332/4333 but like I said the numbers are rubbed and it is a bit of a guess. Based on the above, info they may have been some of the last made, so definitely would not have the lex boards. Guess I now have a future project on my to do list. Glad to hear the  2.4 was definitely a winner both in sales and, for me, sound enjoyment.

bettlemania, thank you for the info on accessing to xo. I will start trying to track down the parts mentioned in this thread.
Jafant, no I did not have the earlier Cary DMS units but the sound from the 700 via streaming and flac files is truly impressive and musical; on a par with my analogue set up in many recordings.

Thanks for insider info on the PCS. Wondering why you referred to them as the “Y2K PCS” however? - as if there was perhaps another (later?) version…

For what it’s worth, peering thru the access port shows a Jan 2005 manufacture date on the woofer. So it sounds as if the PCS never had the coax driver from the 2.4, but that this particular one may have an “improved” model from the 2.3, correct?

I was hoping it might be a miniaturized (i.e. easily shipped and transported) 2.4 with similar performance.

Not that it’s performance isn’t satisfying!

Surprised about your (less than adequately disclosed) damages, because I failed to mention their high quality photography and was almost going to comment on their almost obsessive disclosures.

The last two items I purchased had photographs of the tiniest of nicks and rubs - very easily touched up with a Sharpie. I have purchased a couple “As-Is” scratch and dent items from them with obvious damage - but even at that, it was very clear from the photos what I was getting.
