The new Thiel 3.7 prototypes, while otherwise superb, sounded lean in the bass. Blame it on the room or the newness of the design. By the time they come out (I heard in the fall), I'm sure the bass issue will be corrected. From the midrange up, they were solid and coherent – a Thiel signature. Sure, the unusual drivers look like spinners you'd see driving around LA, but they sure sounded great. Oh yeah, the reason for the update to Shane's previous blog – rumored price is just under $10,000.
