The three editors were totally free in choosing the drivers:
The three loudspeakers were then named after the initials of the originators.
A special feature is the Wyntek terminal (pictured right) used in the TS (Wyntek is registered trademark of I.T. Electronic GmbH); due to the high price of these terminals (80 resp. 62 EUR for one terminal with Speakon) we also supply a version with high quality binding posts (see below).
Excerpt of the review by Thomas Schmidt in Klang+Ton 6/2007: ... "Initially the Thiel was rather unspectacular, almost restrained. After a settling-in phase, however, the TS really showed remarkable properties. Especially vocals love these ceramic drivers, almost as if the singers breathed deeply to liven up and they might even appear to be a bit larger than recorded. Careful angling the speakers towards the listener results in audible changes. In our listening room positioning the speakers parallel to the side walls improved the already remarkable three-dimensionality considerably. The bass is obviously not as good and deep as from the Eton, but has such a speed and dryness that the lack of piston radiating area is easily forgotten. The same is applicable to the tops: where the Eton ER4 or the Scan Speak dome tweeter seem to have more three-dimensionality and detail the Thiel scores with clarity. Even though the other two contenders are ahead in some areas, the ceramic Thiel drivers succeeded in giving the illusion as if there was just one point source per side."" ...
