Jim Thiel speakers

Jim Thiel died in 2009 of cancer, and his company went through a bunch of crap since then. Its really sad to see a once great company turn away from its intended purpose.

For those of you who own the older and wonderful Thiel speakers (I am using a pair of CS 1.2 in a project studio as a comparison, they are wonderful), there has been no hope to repair them. But now:

There is now hope for owners of the older Thiel speakers. One of the original repair specialists created his own company just to repair these old sonic beauties. Here is an article that talks about it:
King Thiel is Dead, Long Live Coherent Source Service -

and Rob Gillium's company's website: Coherent Source Service – Specializing in repair and restoration of THIEL Loudspeakers

I just talked to him on the phone (he is a one-man operation), and ordered a brand new pair of woofers for my CS 1.2 pair.
These speakers are SO worth it.
Jim Thiel lives on.

I worked for a Thiel speaker dealer around the time he died. I listened to a pair of CS3.7's extensively, which I liked better than the Kef Reference 207/2 (not that Kef was worse, just different). The CS3.7's had this magic to them that many other speakers did not. Besides Dynaudio, Thiel is one company that always impressed me.

The CS3.7's had a really cool look to them too! If I had the cash the CS3.7's would be a pair I'd like to have.
