Several rave MCS1 reviews have been published recently. The
reviews include articles from two Japanese magazines, Stereo
Sound and Hi-Vi, the German Heimknio (Home Theater), Tom Miiller's
full-review and follow-up in the The Perfect Vision, and an unpublished
review from former Audio, now The Absolute Sound senior reviewer,
Here are some highlights from the reviews:
The Perfect Vision: "whether the material was music or movies,
the MCS1s performed beautifully as a surround speakerthe MCS1
is superb at rendering surround sound information...the Thiels
provided one of the most credible re-creations of a live musical
event I've ever heard...the [frequency] balance of the MCS1 from
top to bottom is impeccable...Thiel's latest triumph."

Tony Cordesman: "the MCS1 is an exceptionally musical speaker
for the money, as well as an exceptional speaker for a home theater
or surround system...I have no hesitation about recommending
the MCS1 as a center channel, and as left and right main channels...the
use of direct radiators like the MCS1 can create a very precise
sense of direction in a relatively limited area, and do so in
a way I feel sounds considerably better than bipoles and dipoles."

Heimkino: "Thiel's products can be counted among the best
speakers for film and music ...loudspeakers of craftsmanship
and perfectionthe sonic result of the effort undertaken by Thiel
is overwhelming...the center channel especially benefits from
breathtakingly fine resolution and natural voice reproduction
they are capable of terrific and fierce thunder."

Hi-Vi: "for both pure audio and audio/video, the MCS1
represents the best of U.S. high-end speakersas a center speaker,
the dialogue was more real sounding and the voices were reproduced
with location stability...with MCS1s used as all your speakers,
you can go from 2 channels to 5.1 channels with excellent resultsabsolutely
and wonderfully vibrant."
of the MCS1 is of the highest level found in American hi-end
Stereo Sound: "The sound of the MCS1 is of the highest level
found in American hi-end speakers.....the clarity is consistent
with the best speakers available...the timbre is true with fresh
generosity...each and every sound is reproduced with deep subtleties."
