|Value of a preamp?
I don't understand the question.
FWIW, I personaly really like the bottom mounted cable posts. IMHO, they are an elegant solution to what otherwise would be a daily eye sore. Furthermore, it mitigates connectivity issues from curious children and pets, and the lessening of slack ...
@tomthiel Thanks for the prompt response. Most encouraging!:-)
@tomthiel, In your 1-16-2024 post you inidcated that your planned upgrades for the CS 3 and CS 3.5 would include the midrange and tweeter drivers of the CS 3.6. With this implementation will you be able to keep the minimum impedance of the CS 3 an...

R.I.P. Trusted ears will be missed.

|What to do with a large collection
Classical CD's are apprreciated by me.
@duramax747 , I agree, the proportions are nonpareil.
@duramax747 , It would seem that you’re in a unique position to have the resources to get this right. I do hope you can post photos when completed.
|Thiel 2.4 Speakers & Krell KAV - 300iL
The Thiel CS 2.4’s don’t just dip below 4 Ohms, they live there from 100 Hz on. The KAV 300 il might have a Krell logo, but does’nt behave like typical Krells into such impedances, it’s only rated down to 4 Ohms. The Thiel CS 2.4’s are better suit...
I have my doubts as to whether outside paint shops could match the quality of OEM Thiels, especially when Tom Thiel was there.
