Thiel Audio CS2 "Coherent Source" Vintage Loudspeakers
Thiel Audio manufactured highly sought after hi-end loudspeakers from their Kentucky factory from 1977 to 2018. Brothers, Jim and Tom Thiel, and partner Kathy Gornik made their name in audio with the study and design of speakers that compensated for time delays between high and low frequency drivers due to the non-concentric nature. Their studies showed that our ear/brain interpret even the tiniest of time delays as "wrong," which listeners tend to describe as "unmusical" or "unrealistic" sound.
The Coherent Source design used both physical and electrical means to compensate for these anomalies. Thiel's signature sloped front baffle was the most visible result of these studies. After a few generations, the CS2 model was born, and remained one of the companies longest running product lines.
Featuring a 3-way design using some the top European components of its day, the CS2 has outstanding imaging and instrument placement. The speakers disappear into a room and really reproduce lifelike music.
These speakers have been thoroughly serviced: new tweeter ferrofluid utilizing original Dynaudio D28 diaphragms, and rejuvenated-original Vifa 8" poly cone woofers. The grille fabric is in very nice condition. The black ash wood veneer has been cleaned and treated for a beautiful presentation.
Demos are available in Lawrence, MA.
