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!

sdl4 - I have not used the Vovox for interconnects - just because I never felt the need. I'm happy with my Morrows. My opinion is that unshielded sounds better than shielded; so only use shielded when there is a need (evidenced by shielded sounding better.) I'm very interested in what you learn about Vovox as interconnects.
tomthiel,

Just as you are happy with your Morrow interconnects, I'm very happy with my Cardas Clear Refection XLRs. I'm running one Cardas XLR between my DAC and preamp and another between my preamp and amp. Both XLRs are short (.75-1.0 meter). As I mentioned before, my problem is that I would need an 18-foot XLR pair (for the pre to amp run) if I change my set-up from "short XLR - long speaker cable" to a "long XLR - short speaker cable" arrangement.  I either need to spend thousands on a long Clear Reflection XLR or a few hundred on a high-quality pro cable of the same length.

My best bet may be to buy 2-3 short pro cables (e.g.,Vovox, Grimm, and/or Ghost) to compare to my Clear Reflections and decide which one to order in a longer length. If I go that route, I'll post my impressions here.

Thanks again for your comments!
If we had a sticky option, I would elevate Tom's description of thiel speakers to that status. It is fully consistent with my experience.
The 3.7 with sub woofers is an excellent system.
Tri-amping with eq for system and room effects has done wonders for my 3.5, coming very close to the 3.7 system. I can only imagine that 4-amping with eq the 5i would easily match the 3.7 with sub woofers.
By the way, I think that going with multi channel amp and DAC plus eq is essential to mitigate room effects, affordable compared to high end amp and solves most technical short comings of high end thiel speakers. It's fun too. 
I have settled on a 8 channel hypex ncore252mp amp, a laptop with Adobe audition software and a motu interface to conduct my experiments. 
So you guys are literally going around the internal crossovers? 
I don’t think I want to break into the speakers to set this up. But really could be amazing as long as you don’t overdrive one of the drivers by mistake.
@jafant @jafant  I’m not sure yet. Im looking at the ar9, kef 107 or 207, thiel cs 5 or 7, b&w 800 series, dunlavy audio, smaller apogee, sonus faber. Among others
