Audience SX2/Front Row Cables...has anyone tried or heard much of this new reference line?
audiophile1,   Nice system with great room layout. Break-in with continuous load within a week you are pretty much there. They do open up with usage. As with previous lines with Audience, the mids jump out at you in a good way. With the Front R...

I sure will when I get them done. Right now I'm working on a room for my CS 7.2 and CS5i.  I love the less is better approach Thiel undertook. The mid-century modern look is timeless.

unsound,   I completely agree with that statement. I'm in the professional motorsports business so I was speaking from my experience.  This industry has more than a few highly skilled craftsmen up to the task.  You also validated my point with...

On the black CS 3.7 I didn't see in ad disclosure the paint was not original nor they were painted by the seller. If that is true then I would ask for paperwork of what company who did the work and what process was followed to finish the CS 3.7. ...

thieliste, Interesting preference between Jadis and Vitus.. I take it you listen at lower levels? I’ve favored Thiel’s with tubes somewhere in the chain. Pre amp or Tube DAC has been my preference, as I like the muscle of high current SS amps in...

Amberwood is my second favorite. Rosewood is my #1 but can inly be found in earlier model as it is near impossible to source enough certified rosewood from Brazil/Boliva.

rc1985 if you repair/replace one speaker I'd encourage you to do the same with the other speaker. With the painstaking process Thiel had to match components and drivers, in turn the end user should do the same.  What finish are your speakers?

Room is slow going as I do as much as I can each day with my heavy work schedule. I feel it will deliver the goods when completed.  With Thiel's most users make the mistake of not having the proper sized room or setting them too close to the wall...

jafant, You are not mistaken. I own a white pair of CS 2.7. I also have a pair of CS6 in Zebrawood and a pair of CS 2.4SE.  With the room being built the big Thiels will be getting most of the attention. With that said it will be relatively easy...

jafant, Right now I have two pairs of CS5i in dark walnut and Brazilian rosewood. Also I have CS 7.2 in cherry. They will occupy  the new listening room in rotation of course.  I miss that bottom end the big Thiel's bring to the table.  I'm wor...

Ironically,  it seems like I have a track record of logging in more work hours during this holiday weekend.

usaltus, If you mentioned this in this thread already please excuse me for asking if already stated.  What amp(s) are you using to run these power hungry speakers? Have you compared the CS5 to any other Thiel speakers?  I ask as I like to see ...

Out of curiosity how many in this discussion have Thiel CS5i?

igmaty, Congrats to your seat at the table. That speaker is a steal on the used market . My advice would be not to use your current amplification as they will add too much distortion and most likely clip and possibly lose a driver, or two. Amps...

jafant, I have many oars in the water at the moment but will get there when time presents itself.
