Thiel Steps Up

Thiel Audio normally displays at the Venetian Hotel, the venue for specialty audio. But this year they elected to have a booth on the main floor of the Convention center. It was obviously not a spot for an effective, active demo, but the new, 4-way Thiel 40.3, at $35,000/pair, is a big step up in price for the company.

The speaker employs a 1” beryllium dome tweeter in a waveguide, a 5.25” fiberglass upper midrange, an 8” fiberglass midbass, and two 8” aluminum cone woofers. The spectacularly well-finished cabinets stands 53” high and weighs 130lbs.
