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!

I will be placing my Rosewood Thiel CS3.6 up for sale in December if anyone is interested? Golden Colorado area. Too heavy to ship and I no longer have the boxes. Good condition and currently set up in my listening room.

@duramax747 Absolutely not you can listen as loud as you want with the Jadis.

I don’t listen at low volume but i admit i don’t listen to hard rock or any techno music.

The Jadis integrated betters the Vitus in just about every departement and has so much more meat on the bone than any SS amps i have ever heard and i have heard some very very expensive ones in my system in the past 2 years.

The Jadis sounds like real live music as opposed to SS amps.

Price of Jadis amps is very reasonable here in France.


Good Afternoon All,

I am picking up a pair of CS3.5s this Thursday in piano gloss black. How does the CS3.5 compare to the CS3? I will probably end up selling my CS3 locally in Colorado because I imagine the CS3.5 will be a considerable upgrade!

I had the 3.6....listen to Vandersteens.....the same kind of sound....Thiels are a bit more brilliant (high frequency favoring)

bianuzzi22 - Identical concept and specified performance.

The main difference is the midrange driver. The original CS3 Vifa was upgraded to a custom ScanSpeak midrange that allowed broader (7 octave) coverage. Also, the CS3 woofer got a polymer coating which smoothed out its upper range. Crossover tweaks were necessary and the baffle angle is a little different. Same tweeter. The 3.5 EQ is a little more sophisticated.   The CS3 sold 2000 pair and the 3.5 sold 5500 pair. I consider the CS3.5 as quintessential Jim Thiel. I am bundling the CS3 and 3.5 together. All upgrades will apply to both platforms.
