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!

I would love to get the 2.7 or 3.7 model in the future.  The other Theils I have demoed are the 3.5 and 3.6, which were nice in their own ways, the 3.5 was maybe too flat sounding, not in a bad way but more like gigantic studio monitors. I liked the 1.6 a lot in the store, when i got it home it sounded Musical Fidelity amp the sound was really not even close. Many amps later I ended up with a coda amp which was like lifting a veil form the 1.6 where the is tons of clean bass and mids . I think the 2.4 should work well with this amp which is part of why I want to upgrade.  I have been wanting to see what the next step up in the lineup would be like.  I find the 1.6 to be very amazing on the highs, but the mids and lows seem to be slightly less full sounding in comparison to how the treble range feels so palpable.

I have a Coda CSIB v1 integrated amp driving my CS 2.4 speakers, and I can vouch that it is an excellent match.

CODA is a sonic match with Thiel speakers.

What other gear is in your system?

 

Happy Listening!

Good to read that you are enjoying Coda Integrated 

Amp with CS 2.4 loudspeakers. Thank you for confirmation.

 

Happy Listening!

These comparative observations are quite interesting to me. As you know, Jim developed new technologies throughout his inventive career. Each new product incorporated something, or multiple things that were brand new. So the timeline becomes a parallel consideration to the model capability. Bigger, more expensive models bring greater dynamic range and deeper bass. More drivers can deliver better signal integrity spread more evenly across the musical range. The time factor / when the model came out, brings subtlety and sophistication due to new solutions, primarily in driver subtleties, especially after Thiel began making its own drivers in the mid 1990s.
