THIEL Audio to Exhibit New Products at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2012

Brand new CS2.7 makes debut in Denver Audio Designs Suite 9013------ Flagship CS3.7 and CS2.7 featured with HEGEL Music Systems Suite 8004, 8006

(Lexington, KY) September 18th, 2012 - THIEL Audio (www.thielaudio.com), winner of over 60 prestigious awards for loudspeaker design and performance since 1978, has announced that the world premier of the CS2.7 loudspeaker will take place at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) 2012 in the Denver Marriott Tech Center October 12-14. The CS2.7 will be demonstrated in two suites-Denver Audio Designs (Suite 9013) in tandem with THIEL's SS2.2 SmartSub® and HEGEL Music Systems press-only suite 8004. HEGEL's public suite (8006) will feature THIEL's flagship CS3.7 loudspeakers. THIEL's Gary Dayton will be onsite answering questions about the new products throughout the show.


The new CS2.7 employs the coincident tweeter/midrange driver, widely considered an engineering masterpiece and pioneered in the company's flagship model, the CS3.7-named one of the world's top 100 loudspeakers of all time. The CS2.7 also uses a short coil / long gap 8-inch woofer coupled to a passive radiator for fast, accurate bass response, and features a cabinet engineered from the ground up using bent plywood sidewall technology also adapted from the CS3.7, as well as carefully engineered internal bracing used to minimize cabinet resonances. The CS2.7 employs a completely new first order phase and time coherent crossover network-a signature of the THIEL brand for over 30 years. The CS2.7 MSRP is $9900 per pair.

"Our objective at RMAF 2012 is to showcase products from each of our brands with the finest dealers from the region," explained manufacturer's representative Bob Scowcroft. "This is a great show to gain visibility for our product lines, reaching enthusiasts who travel from multiple states to attend this event," added Scowcroft.

In addition to the presence of new THIEL products at RMAF, company president Kathy Gornik will be participating in a seminar entitled "High-end Audio-Regaining the High Ground." The focus of the seminar will be to explore how in the 1960s through the1980s, no self-respecting person of means would have anything less than a decent hi-fi. Today, the emphasis is on convenience and architectural integration. The dialogue is expected to address how the high performance audio brands can reach new customers and be a part of this evolving marketplace. The seminar will take place on Friday, October 12th at 6:15 p.m. in the Aspen Amphitheater within the Denver Marriott Tech Center. The seminar will be hosted by Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News & Record Review and feature a panel of industry experts including Gornik.
