    Default Thiel 04a floorstanding speakers

    Found these on the local craigslist. I am guessing they are pretty decent speakers but thought I would post to see what you guys think.

    I never heard a pair of Thiels I didn't like the way they sound, but they are damn ugly to me. I rank them in the looks with Vanterstein and Magnapans. I'm not a fan of old looking speakers. But all the above sound amazing in there own right.

    Music is there game and they do it well.

    Those are ugly for sure, but everyone I know who has owned a pair of Thiels raves.

    Love the sound. Hate the 84-85db efficiency. You need one (or more) monster amps to drive them.
    Sony 60'' SXRD 1080p
    Amp = Carver AV-705THX 5-Channel
    Processor = NAD T747
    Panasonic BD35 Blu-Ray
    Main = SDA-1C Studio with RD0s, spikes, XO rebuild, rings, I/C upgrade
    Center=Polk CS10, Surround = Athena Dipoles, Sub= Boston 12HO
    Music/Video Streaming = Netgear NEO550
    TT = Audio Technica

    Plus, they are one of the only speakers I can think of that I think look better with the grills on then off.

    You guys are right. They are pretty ugly. I figured they were good speakers, just wasn't sure.

    I owned some Thiels and they are great speakers. These are fugly, though.

    Thiel customer service is exceptional and they can probably refoam the surround and recloth the grills for $100 or so.

    Good luck!
