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!

Does anyone have any info on the woodwork on the CS3.7? Is it solid wood or is there a veneer on it? I will talk with Rob Gillum next week or the week after Thanksgiving. In the meantime does anyone have any info on the wood panels. I would be interested to hear some feedback before I get too deep in the restoration work I am doing.

I am in the process of refinishing the wood. Rob told me to use 220-320 grit sandpaper to clean up the existing lacquer. I forgot to ask him about the composition of the wood.

Part II - This internet thing is so useful.

I was looking at Hegel H590, would be interesting to try this one out with 3.7s.It also has a buildt in DAC for people who want a very simple rig.
I didn’t realize the 3.7s  had that many parts made in China. Thanks for posting the link yyz
@yyzsantabarbara, the previous Thiel’s were laminates. I suspect the same holds true for the 3.7’s. Though they came after Tom Thiel’s departure, I doubt you’ll find anyone with more insight regarding Thiel’s cabinetry. He’s a master at such things.

As unsound pointed out previous Thiels were laminate ,
my 2.7's are laminate but to assure yourself remove the coaxial speaker and look at the inside of the cabinet .
At the same time take the passive readiator out and if you have a multi-meter check the continuity of the wires to check for cross termination ,
something the repair technician shoud have done and discovered
during the repair ( I marked my tweeter wires with painters tape when I rewired to avoid the mistake you are describing ) .

And I would like to thank you for opening my eyes with your discovery of your speakers sounding the best you've ever heard at 6 feet apart ,
I know you have a small room but it got me thinking .

There is always something to learn by following this forum's conversations .
