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?
