    Oooweeee! Those are beautiful! I've not been on your thread in a long while...man, your space/gear is show room level....if it hasnt happened already, one of the major audiophile magazines should come and feature your gear/space.

    Came in today. At 92 lbs each, they're quite stunning - the pictures really don't do them justice. Still gathering my thoughts on how to describe their sound, but my immediate impression was that the music just jumps out of them - they're just incredibly more dynamic and detailed than my Focus Audio's. Looking forward to working my REL sub into the mix tomorrow and giving a more thorough review..

    Those look awesome. But, I can't help that I have, " Exterminate all humans! Exterminate all humans! Exterminate all humans!" going through my head when I look at them.

    Those are stunning cabinets but I cant' help wondering if you can you bake cornbread in those drivers. Even if you can't I'm guessing you will love those speakers for a long while.

    I know you had concerns about your amp being a good match to your new speakers. Are your satisfied w/ the synergy or will you be looking into a more powerful power amp? Do you have any updated comments after owning them for a while now?

    Yes, I did have some worries, but they proved to be unfounded. My room is 15 x 18, and I sit about 10 feet away from my speakers (which are about 8 ft apart). Within these parameters, I have found I have plenty of juice for my Thiels, and feel my amp has more to give. I do listen at fairly loud levels with all types of music. Suffice to say, I have zero plans to move on from my current amp.

    As for the speakers, after almost 4 months of listening I've concluded that they are everything the reviews say - incredibly transparent and dynamic with fast, taut bass that blends seamlessly into as life-like of a presentation as I have ever listened to. I've had a chance to compare them extensively with some similar priced setups - most notably a pair of B&W 802D3s/Classe Monoblocks and Sonus Faber Oympica IIIs/McIntosh MC302 - and each time I came back to my Thiels I never found myself wanting (although the SF setup sounded pretty spectacular). Add the fact that they give off a museum quality aesthetic.. well, let's just say my speaker upgrade path is postponed indefinitely.

    Cheers,

    David

    That's a top shelf system! Just wonderful! Love the speakers.....what speaker cable are you using and what's the cabling/power cords throughout your system if you don't mind? Or if you can point me to a posting where you've already listed your cabling?
