Thiel Owners


Guys-

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!

Nice catch!  Happy Listening!
Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I last posted, but have enjoyed keeping up on the discussion and am so very impressed at the vibrant community of Thiel owners and fans we have here!

I need some advice:  I have been looking to add a second Audio Research D240 MKII solid-state amp to my system to go along with my ARC LS7 tube preamp and PH3 tube phono preamp.  Having 2 D240 MKII’s in mono configuration would bring the rating to 480 watts @ 4 ohms per channel.  

Having said this, knowing that my CS 3.5’s have some history of blowing the mid-range drivers when driven hard, is this a case of having too much power? I don’t tend to listen too loudly, but wonder if having more power would lead to better control, dynamics and bottom end. Or am I getting this already with my single amp’s 240 watts? I guess what I’m asking is, are monoblocks worth it?

Thanks for any feedback....I really value the experience and knowledge you all share here!

Hope you are all doing well,

Arvin

Good to see your return here. Hope you are well and enjoying the Spring season. Hang in there until one of our 3.5 experts addresses your query.
Happy Listening!
arvincastro,   you can never have too much power.  almost all damage is  done by over driving an amp and causing it to go into "clipping".  so do not worry as more power is better power.  cleaner and less distortion.
