Something about Thiel CS 3.7


Hello Guys,
I own since ten years the Thiel CS 2.4 (not SE) and I'm still happy with them but someone offered me the Thiel CS 3.7 as change with some added money.
Theorically should be an improvment respect my 2.4 expecially regarding the easyest load .. my 2.4 run with Primare A32 solid state amp.. that does a good job on them.
The 3.7 reading specs has 90db efficiency and 4 ohm load with a minimum around 2.3ohm while my 2.4 87db same 4 ohm load but a deep around 1.2 ohm .. not easy for amps.
Someone here tried both? .. and what do you think about?
Thanks in advance for your reply!
Regards,
Curio

@georgehifi. You should see how ugly mine look with my custom paint job. My wife is not a fan of the looks.
Yep, magic sounding, but they're a speaker only the mother could like, and he's no longer with us, rip Jim.
Cheers George


Thiel 3.7’s great speakers, when driven to get their best. Very low impedance, need an amp that does current real well as Stereophile says. " mandating use of an amplifier that has no problem delivering high currents".

But my god are they ugly as sin, remind me of Daleks in Dr Who.
