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!

@ronkent  Didn't you lose any bass with the Gaia footers under your 3.7s ?

Richer sound is a very good thing for 3.7s as they can sometimes sound lean.

Paired with the BHK 300 they must sound fantastic.

I will definitely upgrade to monoblocks at some point to get the best out of them.

it has been a few years since i added the GAIA footers,   but i recall that the sound was a little richer and yet a bit more detailed.   i put them on the outriggers.

In case anyone is interested,

bmorill listed a pair of CS 7 speakers on Audiogon yesterday.

Asking $2000 - located in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Have you considered a tube buffer or a tube disc player ?

I had the last solid state Carver CD player design , granted it was from the 80's and it sounded digital .  It was replaced with Carvers last CD player that uses 2 tubes in the output and I love it , when I read about it it seemed that for years many considered it their reference player .  My point is that using a tube buffer or finding a tube based CD player would most likely solve your disc brightness .

You might also consider upgrading the components on your crossovers , they made a lot of improvements since 2006 .  

 

I'm probably going to the crossover upgrade on my 3.7s next year, it is really worth it if you plan on keeping them for many more years.
