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!
No capacitance, resistance, or inductance values were changed intentionally although my LCR meter measured some small deviations from the target values. That said, OEM caps were mostly 100V whereas the new caps range 160-630V. OEM resistors were 10W, Mills are 12W. I think one, if not both, foil coils in the feed positions were rated different AWG than OEM air cores. And the FST hookup wire appeared to be 18 gauge throughout whereas the Cardas replacements were various combinations of 18 and 15 gauge depending on in/out and coax/woofer.

Tom Thiel cautioned me to check total resistance of the boards. I did not do this before replacing the sandcast resistors but one copy of the layout I have indicates total resistance of the 2.4 coax filter should be, IIRC, 31.6 Ohms and the woofer filter is nearly a flow through. My LCR meter measured resistance, of the final boards, within 0.1 Ohms of those values.

Good to read that Tidal was the culprit. Servers and Steamers do not sound "right" to my ears.

Happy Listening!
Listened to the section on qobuz at modest volume and was not able to identify any distortion. 
Hi guys, what distance do you typically position your Thiels from back wall ?And are they pointing straight or are they toed in towards you.

A good measure from the back wall is 2-3 feet. IMO, models CS 2.4/2.4SE , CS 2.7 and CS 3.7 does not benefit from toe-in.

Happy Listening!
