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!

The Audiopoint was introduced in 1989. Around that time we made available the smooth barrell pressure fit brass point for select Thiel models. I checked today there are zero available.  Reference in time at my first home in '79 I used hardened steel points sold thru Linn dealers. I used these on Time Aligned  speaker prototypes developed by Ed Long. I remember Harry coming over for a listen.Soon after came the aluminum  TipToes from the Mod Squad.  Tom



Welcome! good to see you here today. We do have a few CS6 fans and owners on the Panel. Stay tuned until one of those guys chimes in to address your query.

Mr. Rob Gillum at CSS will be a great resource and can provide additional guidance on your purchase decision. I look forward in reading more about your musical tastes and system plan.

The ML 23.5 is a stone classic power amp. At it age, it could probably benefit from a tune up. A great ML resource is  Pyramid Audio in Austin Tx. 

If on the west coast, George Meyer AV in Los Angeles is another great Audio resource.


Happy Listening!

Hi All,

Since this is my favorite and just all-around best forum I’m a member of, I’m going to ask an ‘off-topic’ question….

I’m in Burbank CA. I want to learn about electricity and amplifier construction and repair. Can someone suggest a professional or organization that would teach me these things?

You can direct message me or reply here if you have any suggestions.




I have a used pair of C6’s. Both my midranges buzz occasionally. Sometimes due to under amplification and sometimes just at certain passages rarely in certain songs.

I’m certain I need new drivers. My pair cost $2,500 in 2019.

Still, these buzzings are rare. These are the most natural, honest, powerful and nuanced speakers I’ve had in my system.



Another ML repair expert is United Radio Syracuse, NY.


Happy Listening!
