She said “The sound seemed to be more realistic.”
I struggled for a moment to describe these Dark Cherry finish Thiel PCS mid-sized monitors. They were a compromise with my favorite electrostat’s sound and my wife’s taste for all things Wilson. She just said it. The Sound seemed more realistic. Period. I asked her, more realistic than …. And I just got the look in return. OK they do just sound more realistic than my electrostats and compare favorably with the smaller Wilsons but the sound is pure Thiel. She’s loved the sound of Thiels from our first listen in a Chicago dealer demo room. I was bent on finding stats. I should have listened. This pair built in 2005/2006 has been our winter speakers in a large 1400 sq. ft. listening room. Strictly music, but I’ve read several accounts how impressive they are as fronts in a HT setting. My HT speakers have always been my ‘second’ system and the Thiels are too good for my Theater room. They need to sing. See the Legacy Coda Amp under a separate listing for our power source. Class A with muscle. We used a George’s Lightspeed as the passive pre…which helps explain the ‘realistic’ sound we’ve enjoyed through the Thiels.
