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!

dsper - if you like the Thiel sound, a pair of CS.5s might work. They are a diminutive floor-standing 2-way which under your conditions might work well - Stereophile tested them at 89dB sensitivity. Thiel's flat impedance curve works to your advantage and I find them very easy to make sound quite good.

Another confirmation for Rob Gillium and Coherent Source Service's job well done!

Quick turn around and quality work on some blown up CS3.6 mids. Going to have a set of tweeters redone and will install all at once. Post redo of the caps and resisters in essence I'll have new speakers, well excepting the woofers.

dsper +1 for the CS .5 - had a pair in my living room from 1996 to 2011 before upgrading to 2.4s. Absolutely fantastic little floor stander.



Good to see you here again. Thank You for reporting your experience with Mr. Rob Gillum at CSS. I look forward in reading more about your musical tastes and system.


Happy Listening!

I just thought I would post since my current setup is sort of along the lines this thread took.

To qualify I do have some Thiel speakers, but the previous owner ran them with too weak an amp and now they only sound good at low volume, they are awaiting new tweeters.

To get to the gist of it, I am now using Von Schweikert Audio VR2 speakers, driven by Bryston PP120 amps. My Bryston preamp is currently sitting in its box with a label on it to go to Bryston for a repair, I attempted to go from my DAC, straight to amps, this was a bit, well, a lot too loud, so I bought a cheap passive pre off of ebay, It cost less than fifty dollars, so now my cd transport, and computer connect to my DAC which connects XLR to the pre, then six foot XLR to each mono block.

The sound is so to speak delicious, the best audio I have experienced in many years. Since my Ohm Walsh days anyway.
