I’ve had the same speakers for 21 years now — Thiel CS3.6s — and have been very happy with them. In that time, I’ve made numerous changes to my system (mostly Naim electronics) and don’t feel these speakers have ever limited my system — which is detailed, has PRAT, and also very good imaging.
I don’t listen to many other speakers since I think it’s kind of meaningless doing so using other electronics, cables, etc. in a different room — and it’s almost impossible to get large heavy speakers to demo in my own room.
I guess I’m an audio dinosaur, but when I do (infrequently) hear other systems, I’m rarely thinking that WOW this sounds so much better than my own system.
Is there anything wrong with sticking with what I know works and getting “off the merry-go-round” — or am I an official audiophile dropout?
