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 test mic will give the software roll off points I assume?"  One uses the mic with pink noise (there are free downloads as well as test discs).  I usually measure with the subs turned off.  In a room bass frequencies sum.  So one does not want to have the main speakers producing the same frequencies as the sub and causing a bass bump at certain frequencies.  So note where the mains start to drop off and set the Rel accordingly (I currently have a pair of Rel S/812s in the main system) and then test again and get it as even as possible without peaks and dips in the lower frequencies.  I also use room treatments.




My pleasure. Oddly enough, the Pass Labs X150.8 is the only model that I have heard. I rather enjoyed the presentation and sound with an Aesthetix pre-amp, Aesthetix cd player,  Thiel CS 2.4 loudspeakers and Synergistic Research cable loom (older series).



A few years back I heard the Pass Labs XP-10 and XP-20 pre-amps with Parasound HCA series power amps, TAD loudspeakers, Esoteric DV-60 universal player, Silent Source cables and Wireworld Silver Electra power cords.


Happy Listening!

Happy St. Patrick’s day! Anyone have advice on what external subwoofer amplifier I could use for my SS2 subwoofer? I am basically replacing all the internals of my SS2 and just wondering if anyone else has done this because my drivers are bad and the amplifier is also having some issues. Basically keeping the cabinet because it looks nice. But replacing everything else.
