Same here i never toe in my 3.7s, this is definitely the best results i got but i'm lucky to have plenty of room from the side walls like about 6 feet.  
Something about Thiel CS 3.7
My 2 cents if you really want to know how a 3.7 can sing try tube monoblocks like Jadis or VAC. I've tried all kinds of SS amps with them but the best results i got by far is with PP tube amps.

I've heard the X3s at a friend's place a couple of weeks ago and we didn't like them, we found them pretty boring, slow and not lively We compared them to his Qualio IQs which are much better and less expensive. Amp used was a Hegel H590 with pl...

Anyone has tried Mcintosh tube preamp paired with Krell 302 Evo on his Thiels ?

Hi guys, a friend mine asked me if i wanted to demo his monster Pilium Leonidas integrated on my 3.7s. This is the typical integrated that loves difficult load speakers and can easily drive 2ohms. Its is also very smooth like Pass Labs so will k... 
Opinions on Pure Audio Project Quintet 15 Horn 1 Please
I'm very interested in the PAP Trio15 Horn version as i would like to try something very different to my beloved Thiel CS 3.7s. I'm planning to get Jadis amplification for my Thiel therefore this would also work great on Trio15s. My room is medi... 
Magico A3 replacement
@dpm2340 Verity would definitely be a great choice if you are looking for musicality. A friend of mine has the Verity Otello driven by Ypsilon Phaethon.  
Experiences With Costly Balanced XLR Interconnects Above $3,000
My Cardas Clear Beyond XLR smoked Clarus Crimson XLR in a direct shootout yesterday. The difference was huge.  
Higher-End Class A/B vs. Class A Integrateds
My ex Gryphon Diablo 300 class A/B was outperformed by my present Vitus SIA-025 Mk2 class A and lately my Vitus was also outperformed by a Jadis DA88S KT120 tube class A integrated. The Jadis is about the same price as the Diablo 300. This is my... 
Anybody heard the Jadis DA 88 Signature?
I have recently demoed the MK2 version of the DA88S optimised for KT120s in my system and I can assure you it easily outperformed my Vitus SIA-025 MK2 on my Thiel CS 3.7 speakers.

Like @dickieboy this is also my experience i have found that 60w Jadis class A PP tube did sound much better than 300w class A/B Gryphon SS on my CS 3.7s I'm actually considering selling my Vitus amp for pure tube Jadis goodness.

@silvanik My floor is a wooden floor and my system sits on a thick acoustic carpet. I have tried the Gaia carpet discs and it didn'd do it for me, sound was very thin.    
Attention Thiel CS3.7 owners
I'm most likely the only one on this forum who has demoed up to 53k worth of SS amps on Thiel CS 3.7s. None of them are able to outperform a VAC Master preamp paired with Jadis Monoblocks on this particular Thiel model. All demoes are done at my... 
Anybody using tube amps to drive Thiel CS 3.7's ?
Well guys, the Jadis DA88S with 8 KT120s in PP class A beat my Vitus SIA-025 Mk2 on my CS 3.7s. Jadis sounds like real live music with lots of meat on the bone. Jadis Monos would be fantastic on Thiel speakers.
