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!

Hi everyone,

Long time reader of this thread here, but first-time poster (: I was hoping for some insights on the following: I recently exchanged my CS1.2s for a pair of 2.4s. When I brought them home, I noticed a sort of brown residue were the surround meets the cone of the mid driver. It looks a bit like ferrofluid. I'm wondering whether this is just something that happens to these drivers with as the glue ages, or whether it means my driver needs servicing or has been tampered with. I'm especially curious because to my surprise, the 2.4s sound a bit brighter than the 1.2s, where I was told they were one of the more mellow-sounding Thiels.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated. Here's a link to a picture of the driver and the residue:




Mine has that as well just slightly noticeable. Being I purchased the pair brand new in 2005 it's got to be the many years of temperature fluctuating and normal playback wear and tear. Maybe take a Hex Key and tighten all the front screws in the case they became loose over the years which hold the speaker cones in place. 


These speakers require lots of quality watts to sing their best. What amplifier are you using?



Welcome! Are you selling the 3.6 in order to move up to a newer Thiel model?

I look forward in reading more about your Musical tastes and System.


Happy Listening!



Good to see you here again. Speaker 3.5 is very popular here and a Panel favorite.

You will find a plethora of information from fans and owners alike. This particular loudspeaker is quintessential Jim Thiel as above.

What other gear is in your System?


Happy Listening!



Thank You for the CS3 and CS 3.5 comparison. Good to read that upgrade package(s) will be avail bundled.

I hope that you re well this Holiday Season!


Happy Listening!
