They pair this with low resonance diaphragms and specially selected electrical network components to achieve "a very high level of clarity and tonal accuracy". They have also decked out the CS2. THIEL also included in the design of the cabinet a beveled groove between the deep black baffle and the cabinet walls, designed to denote the Signature Edition from their standard issue.
They also use stainless steel hardware to secure the drivers to the baffle, and a high contrast THIEL logo in chrome relief at the base of each enclosure. As a final touch, on the bottom rear of each cabinet has a laser-etched aluminum plate that includes the maker Jim THIEL's signature.
The speakers arrived by truck with both boxes on a single pallet that the driver wheeled to my front porch with a huge hand truck.
Each speaker, with packing that included plywood boards on the inside top and bottom of each box, weighed almost lbs and was a bit over four feet tall, so getting them up two flights of stairs to my listening room was a virtually impossible job for a featherweight such as me. Rather than bother my neighbor, I bribed the driver for assistance. Thank you. The speakers were hooked up and positioned within a half an hour, and only about a couple of hours of auditioning I found a suitable position for the speakers.
After that I easily affixed the outriggers with the spikes firmly fixed the speakers to the industrial grade carpeted floor.
I located the speakers about 3. I powered the speakers at various times during the review period with three different amplifiers: a wpc solid-state Krell, the wpc hybrid conrad-johnson ETS that has a tube input stage and a solid-state output stage, and a pair of tubed 60 watt PrimaLuna monoblocs. The phono preamplifier was either the excellent onboard phono section of the BAT, or the nearly impossible-to-beat-at-its-price Lehmann Black Cube SE with its heavy-duty power supply.
When I used a Velodyne subwoofer, its power cord was connected to a Chang Lightspeed power conditioner. If you like a mix of bluegrass, classical, contempory music performed by 4 superb musicians, featuring one of the purist voices out there, you need to buy this CD.
Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Phenomenal album by these renowned musicians, I wouldn't say no to another collaboration. Here and Heaven is one of my all time favourite songs, incredible strings, amazing musicians. For the adventurous listener, these performances show just what a collective of superb musicians there is on this disc.
This may not be initially to everybody's taste. But be patent and you will discover something that is musically exciting, with outstanding recorded sound. I have a hunch this will gather new friends if there is any justice out there. My favourite, of the 'jazzy' type is 'Appalachian Journey. But I shall listen to it often. Load more international reviews. Great album. Something very special by a group of very talented musicians. Chris Thile is a man genuinely interested in creating good sounds.
Poorly wrapped in a bit of shrunk film only. Bought for a friend as a present - arrived very well and has gone great with them! Bluegrass by internationally renowned classical musicians.
Lots of fun being had by all. Thoroughly recommended for either American folk or classical fans. Great service, and fantastic CD. Cant take it out of the CD player, a must for all serious music lovers.
Yo-Yo Ma geht gerne den "umgekehrten Weg" aus der Klassik kommend. Ich will eigentlich gar nicht zuviel verraten - eher den Leser neugierig machen. Es lohnt in jedem Fall hier zu lauschen und den einzelnen Noten selbst im Detail zu folgen.
Alle 4 sind wahre Meister ihres Instruments - versprochen. Das ist zwar "nur" ein "Neben-Grammy" aber die Academy liegt hier ganz selten daneben. Nochmal - Interpretation mindestens genauso gut - und ja, irgendwo zwischen Folk Here and Heaven und Klassik Franz and the Eagle angesiedelt, und schon deshalb auch hoher Repertoirewert. Translate review to English. I've never said this before, but I am going to wear this out. I didn't know what to expect.
The level of musicianship is incredible and the sound is really clear and crisp. If back and knee-slapping, twangy, high energy blue-grass is what you want though, you may be disappointed with The Goat Rodeo Sessions because this is a sophisticated approach.
