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 floor interface is a complex problem, especially considering that each floor is unique and sometimes substantially different from other floors.

There is a method of material coupling where the collection of resonant energy is transferred to a large disc of the same material effectively increasing the surface area many times. And if you have 3 or 4 these devices then you effectively have the same shelf or floor surface under each and every component set up this way including the speakers. It works. TomD

Unsound - that's a complication I hadn't anticipated. Wire is highly reactive and susceptible to noise from multiple causes. Having long runs between the XO and speaker would require specific engineering to maintain target performance.

I've become a big fan of shortest practical speaker cable runs via a pair of amps part-way between the centered source rack and speakers, with XOs part-way again. I've been presuming 1/2 meter umbilicals. Could be a meter.

@tomthiel, your point is well taken. In my case I could possibly accommodate 1 meter runs, but something like 1.5 meters would probably be preferable.
