Re: IS THIEL Crazy Opening Crutchfield?
I originally heard Theil speakers some years ago at Innovative Audio/Video in Brooklyn. With the Levinsons, the sound was very detailed, open and articulate. And that was maybe, 1999. However, placement with them is more critical than some others.
It is true that Thiel has fallen off. I can not remember the last time I read a review, for any of their speakers. I can not even remember the last time I saw there speakers in a sound room, or hi - fi show. Thiel to me is a company only the high end community knows. With Crutchfield, to me, is not a great fit. I could be wrong, but the consumers who read Crutchfield, are not there regular customers.
Only time will tell if this will be a good move for Thiel.
