    Default FS Thiel CS 2.2 3 way floorstanding speakers

    I thought these would be keepers but I am trading up to something better.

    For sale Thiel CS 2.2 three way speakers with better than original performance.

    The crossovers have been extensively re-capped and the speakers re-wired with PC-OCC cable.





    Specifications:
    33Hz - 27kHz +/- 3dB, 35Hz - 20kHz +/- 2dB
    Crossover frequencies 800Hz and 3kHz, 6dB/octave
    Impedance 4 ohms, 86dB/W/m, 50-250W

    They feature a passive bass radiator and these have replacement tweeters fitted as the originals were faulty.





    Re-capped crossovers, two boards, LF and MF/HF in each speaker:




    The cabinets are incredibly solid with extensive internal bracing. Each speaker weighs 37.2 kg.




    Connection is underneath in the incorporated plinth:




    Speaker dimensions are 108h x 34d (base) x 31w cms.

    Price is £1500, delivery can be arranged for petrol cost. Welcome to audition at Firebottle towers.
    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Thanks for the offer Steve, that's certainly possible.

    Anyone in the north of England interested? Will make pickup easier with shorter distance.

    Bump for a very fine pair of speakers.

    These could be end game for someone.

    I heard this pair at a recent NEBO meeting, nice sounding speaker with surprising bass depth for the driver size and capable of working in a large room.

    I heard a pair of those a few years ago and very nice they were too, there are quite a few reviews singing their praises,
    Listening is the act of aural discrimination and dissemination of sound, and accepting you get it wrong sometimes.

    Analog Inputs: Pro-Ject Signature 10 TT & arm, Benz Micro LP-S, Michel Cusis MC, Goldring 2500 and Ortofon Rondo Blue cartridges, Hitachi FT5500 mk2 Tuner

    Digital:- Marantz SA-KI Pearl CD player, RaspberryPi/HifiBerry Digi+ Pro, Buffalo NAS Drive

    Amplification:- AudioValve Sunilda phono stage, Krell KSP-7B pre-amp, Krell KSA-80 power amp

    Output: Wilson Benesch Vector speakers, KLH Ultimate One Headphones

    Cables: Furutech AG-12-R4 High Performance Phono Cable, Tellurium Q Ultra Black II RCA & Chord Epic 2 RCA, QED Genesis Silver Spiral speaker leads, & links


    I think I am nearing audio nirvana, but donít tell anyone.
