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!

Yes, and what real person can hold off on buying an amp for years while having great speakers?
So, I have the new to me CS5's set up (sort of) in my listening room.  Still need to be positioned properly, but I've got to move some gear to make room:).  Regardless, they already sound fantastic.  I am already feeling better about the speakers I'll likely be selling to make room.
There is one issue though.  The top woofer (mass loaded) on one of the speakers makes a flapping (or maybe rubbing) sound at volume.  The same driver on the other speaker is fine.  The surround looks good, so I can only assume that the voice coil is rubbing?  Does anyone know if the CS5 woofers tend to have issues with sagging voice coils or surrounds?  I will probably send the driver off to Rob, but I'm wondering if this is something I should be concerned about with the other five woofers.
esprits4s - mass always tries to sag, and these speakers are about 30 years old. Before incurring expense, I suggest turning all 6 woofers top for bottom. The offending woofer might take some time to re-center in its gap, but it could fix itself.
