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!

@lars888888 . Being stable only suggests that the amp won’t go into oscillation when presented with the specified load. It does not imply with how much power and/or with how much distortion. 

@dickieboy, I’m not sure where the “many” are that you are hearing are suggesting that the CS 3.5’s have a sub 4 Ohm load. Do keep in mind that the CS 3.5’s eq can demand up to an extra 12 dB of draw from the partnering amplification. While Jim Thiel most cleverly used the inherent box resonance impedance rise that coincidentally occurs at just where the eq is most demanding to somewhat mitigate the draw, it still puts quite a bit of extra demand on the partnering amplification. Jim Thiel would have recommended at least 80-100 Watts (depending on vintage) into 4 Ohms for the CS 3.5’s.
 While one might be happy with less power, one would not be maximizing the full potential of the speakers.

Just in case anyone is interested.

TMR has listed a pair of oak CS 3.6 speakers for $1149 + $399 for shipping.
