I've posted on the 2.4 a couple of times now. I've owned Thiel CS7.2s, downsized to DAL SC-IIIs/pair Vandersteen 2Wqs/M5 crossover, and now own the CS2.4s, with no sub for music. The CS2.4 brings back into my listening room many of the qualities I enjoyed about the CS7.2s in a scaled down package; truth of timbre, absence of cabinet colorations, excellent coherence, large and precise soudstage, great midrange, and quality bass reproduction. Overall the 2.4 is a more robust, and fuller sounding speaker than it's predecessor. From what I can tell its easier to drive as well.
