With my twin SS2.2/S1 integrator, I have a full range speaker experience (down to 15/20Hz) with the imaging that I have found hard to beat.
I imagine I would have to move away from Thiel at some stage now there is nothing from them with their original coherent coincident design that Jim spent his life designing.
I'd say Wilson, Raidho are way more expensive than the CS3.7s and not really like for like.
That said I recently heard some Vienna Acoustics Music that gave me a little room for pause
thanks for reply
thiel was still my first choice , but honestly i dont know when they will stop repairing tweeter or woofer , so guess everyone have to go for some other brand in the future
imaging was one of thiel 's signature ,the clarity and instument seperation was brilliant too .i did borrow soem speaker home , like pmc ,dyna, jbl and raidho, but dont really likes it .sound quality was ok ,BUT the things was the respond was quite slow n lack of dyanmic .
for my own purpose was ht but with 2 channel quality , thiel gives super strong punch and dynamic even compare to THX movie speakers,like triad or procella ,they makes really good speaker for ht , but thiel makes even better,the impact and dynamic can be faster then ht speaker and the sound quality also far better than that on music concert or cd .
i used 2.3i with mcs1 and ss2 with 3 mono block with meridian g68 , its not a expensive combo , but really a killer set for ht .the thiel sub also was a crazy ass if u set it right .
i knew i m going to miss it ....
for now . i m trying to explore the speaker world n see aything similar to thiel refer to the speed n react respond .
