We will be guests of Spearit Sound (www.spearitsound.com)
for a presentation by Jim Thiel (www.thielaudio.com).
Jim Thiel will primarily be talking about the new CS3.7 loudspeaker, his
latest design. In addition to discussing his design philosophy and goals
and some design features that are common to all THIEL products, he will
highlight what is new and different about the CS3.7 and why he is particularly
excited about this product.
Jim Thiel is a co-founder, co-owner, and product design
engineer for THIEL. His interest in music began on the piano in early childhood
and remains an important part of his life today. His involvement in audio
can be traced to age 12 when he began to build and repair radios and other
electronic gear. His academic background is in physics and mathematics.
Jim pioneered the principle of time and phase accuracy in loudspeakers with
the use of sloped baffles, coaxial driver mounting, and phase coherent crossover
Jim Thiels designs have been honored on a number
of occasions by the audio industry. These awards include: the International
Consumer Electronics Show Innovations Design and Engineering Award, awarded
22 different times, including a 2007 award for the new CS3.7 and a Best
of Innovations Award for the new ViewPoint for 2005.
Since this is not a formal BAS meeting there will be
no open forum.
