Always love seeing vintagey equipment esp the Thiels!  Curious how you landed on the AR DS-450s for amplification as well as Tara Labs for cables esp speaker cables?

I have the Thiel CS2's in the same light oak finish.  Yours are in wonderful shape as mine are since buying new in 1988.

I also have B&L RL 6000 speakers hanging on a wall in a different system / room.

Great oldie goldie stuff!   Enjoy!!

Thiel CS1.2 and B&O TX2 brings back fond memories. I still have them and my TX2 is up and running. Thanks for sharing and I will need to look into getting my TX2 in top shape again.   Great setup.
