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!



do you recall the rest of the seller's system? Specifically, any pre-amp? Cables?

Is the source feeding directly into the ML power amp?

Regarding those classic amps, a tune up will do wonders for performance. Much information can be found and read across other Audio forums. Trust your ears.

Another option on the East coast. Bill Thalmann in Virginia may be of help as well.

Amps I have used with my CS6’s are:

1)Ampzilla 2000 mono blocks—very textured, excellent full frequency response, a touch hard on sibilance, these are my main amps

2) Yamaha P2250 mono blocked—pretty much the perfect amp for me thus far. Yamahas are excellent at getting all the bass out of these speakers and are just plain honest truth amps. Fans are a drawback.

3) David Berning ZH270–another near perfect amplifier, but struggles on power with the CS6’s

4) Carver Signature Sunfire 600–a great all-around amp. Doesn’t control low end well enough, but does give a nice presentation.

5) BAT VK-500–this amp gives a larger image, controls the speakers top to bottom, similar to the Carver but more control, more texture and darker darks.

6) Electron Kinetics Eagle 2–just a darn good amp. Can feel a touch ‘thin’ but it’s very fast, transparent and works great with Thiel but can be too much of a good thing with the Thiels.



Thank You for the follow up on pricing per Rob at CSS. That is quite an extensive Power Amp list.  Which one is in your current system ?


Happy Listening!
