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!

Very intense and detailed video from someone who knows his design work inside and out. No pauses or hesitation like a brain on a train..with no stops in between. Tom
Thoft, bring it to the attention of the owner of the house. Without ground, your fuses or circuit breakers may not be effective and cause a fire hazard. Don't live with that risk. It should get fixed. 
Tom - that guy knows his wire, and consider his background at Belden. I'd love to hear his wire.
He reminds me of my first aha speaker cable experience at CES around 1978. (This post repeats some earlier references, but 200+ pages deep and some new folks might like hearing . . . ) Kimber and Thiel were fairly new companies, before "wire" had become a component. We were using 00 welding cable for speaker wire. A bunch of serious guys had congregated in our CES exhibit room the night before opening. Ray had this braided stuff to submit to critique. Its sell price would be around $1000/pair foot due to all its exoticacies. (in 2021 dollars, about $3700/ pair foot.) Wow! the sonic upgrade was stunning to everyone in the room. We exhibited with it, and took some flack from reviewers and dealers for using $30K speaker cables with our 03 being introduced at around $900/pair. That experience focused our attitude that each upstream component bears its own responsibilities for signal purity. We generally fed our speakers a much more expensive signal than norms would suggest.

Does anyone here use braided flat wire? either Kimber or others? I know it's extremely expensive to make well, and I'd like to hear if anyone is succeeding with it.
