THIEL Audio MCS1, SCS3 and SS2 Loudspeaker System Review

 

For many years I have revered the THIEL speaker cabinet designs and construction. Being a DIY speaker builder, I recognize their efforts on time alignment and minimization of diffraction which tends to be less common among the vast array of traditional...

Superb cabinet design ; Large selection of finishes and grill fabrics ; Grills can be left on for critical listening ; Overall Pleasing Sound

Stands are not adjustable ; Limited low frequency response of main speakers ; Require higher than average current for optimum performance

Speakers: Main Speakers: Thiel MCS1

 

The MCS1 design stands for the proposition that the best way to add to a two-channel system is to use a universal device, i.e., the same speaker. Instead of Thiel's traditional vertical-driver array (tweeter on top, woofers on the bottom), the MCS1 is...

Product Specifications

The MCS1 is a breakthrough loudspeaker for achieving high performance sound from an easy-to-place cabinet in home music and video sound systems. The MCS1's extremely realistic reproduction, combined with high output capability, high efficiency, and magnetic shielding makes it a truly ultimate performance multichannel loudspeaker. One of the MCS1's most innovative design features is a newly developed coaxial tweeter/midrange driver where the two drivers' diaphragms share the same voice coil. This technique allows the elimination of the midrange/tweeter section of the electrical crossover network as the drivers' structure provides a mechanical crossover. The coaxial mounting results in perfect time coherence regardless of listener position, greatly improving imaging and transient fidelity. The MCS1 uses a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter and a 3.5-inch aluminum diaphragm midrange. A very low distortion short coil/long gap motor system greatly increases openness and clarity. The two MCS1 6.5" woofers use metal diaphragms to eliminate resonances in the operating range for very clear and open reproduction. Expensive short coil/long gap, copper stabilized motor systems dramatically reduce distortion. The 2.2 pound magnet increases output capability and efficiency.
