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!


Nice system! It is great to read about another Sony ES SCD-1 owner.

Enjoy it all in good health.  Happy Listening!

Hi Everyone,  Very much enjoying that this thread is so active. I've mentioned before that I own a pair of CS5's and CS7.2's.  The CS5's are close to mint, and the CS7.2's unfortunately have seen better days cosmetically. 
  When I originally started researching Thiel speakers, the CS5's were on my dream list.  Once I finally found a pair locally, it was a packaged deal with a pair of CS7.2's that needed work.  After sending the damaged CS7.2 woofers to Rob Gillum for complete rebuilds, the speakers sound great despite being cosmetically challenged.  At some point, I need to decide between the two speaker pairs on which to keep.  I've started A/B'ing them, and one thing that stands out is that the CS5's seem to be bass shy compared to the CS7.2's.  I am using the same amp on both (Levinson 436 monoblocks), they should have plenty of power. 
  So, my question is should this be expected, or should I be looking into the CS5's for issues?


Good to see you as always Brother. Hope you are well this Summer and enjoying re-visiting "The Good" Dr. John's catalog. I know that I am.

Happy Listening!


Stay tuned for one of our CS5 and CS 7.2 experts chime in on your query. I know that we have (at least) one owner for each model cited. Good to see you again. Happy Listening!
