Another “side trip” that had a great ending

I am always looking improvements to the stereo system and in May of 2017 I found a pair of Thiel CS1.6 speakers to audition. These little floor standing speakers are a marvel and handily outdid the B&W Matrix 805’s. They have more bottom end and they are more precise with a much bigger sound stage! So they went into the system.

There is a “small” issue with the 1.6s; the front is covered with cloth and tapered back. One of my cats thought they were new scratching posts, ARGGHHH!! So some 1/8 masonite shields had to be improvised. Whew!
