THIEL have just released their brand new floorstanding speaker, the CS2.7. It succeeds the CS2.4 as their mid-priced Classic Collection speaker. The new CS2 series surely has learned a lot from the CS3.7 – as it now uses curved ply walls rather than flat MDF, and the coaxial driver is straight from the CS3.7. The result is a far greater degree of clarity, transparency, sense of space and involvement in your music. They simply play beautifully.
The CS2.7 incorporates new technologies developed for our flagship CS3.7 loudspeaker including a state-of-the-art coaxial/coincident driver. The midrange element itself has perfectly neutral response to 20kHz – an upper range specification seldom attained even by tweeters.
Deep, fast, and tight bass emanates from an all THIEL-designed and built 8-inch woofer supported by a passive radiator that provides the bass extension of a tuned port with none of the breathy « chuffing noises » associated with vented enclosure designs. The result is authoritative bass response boasting the detail and articulation of a sealed cabinet.
The newly designed CS2.7 enclosure wraps THIEL‘s unique driver designs in a very attractive, ultra-rigid bent plywood laminated with your choice of hardwood veneer. THIEL‘s non-resonant enclosure preserves critical detail during playback– more so than even prior generations of the THIELCS2 series speakers which had already excelled in this regard.
For those lucky enough to attend the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2012, THIEL‘s CS2.7 loudspeakers will be introduced to the public for the first time within the local dealer’s room — Denver Audio Designs, room 9013.
As well, Kathy Gornik, THIEL President will be participating in a panel moderated by Ken Kessler. Along with other notables (Dan d’Agostino, Peter McGrath, Roy Hall and Michael Fremer), Kathy will discuss modern trends in high end audio and what it will take to bring a new generation of music lovers into the fold.
