Raidho, GamuT, Pear Audio Blue, Chord | High End 2019

By | May 28th, 2019|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by The LSA Group

There should be an unwritten rule for high-end audio shows, and it is this: if you are going to play Dean Martin’s Dream with Dean, then you need to play it at the appropriate volume. This great-sounding album, one of my favorite reference LPs, is billed as “the intimate Dean Martin,” and Dean should sound like he’s whispering in your ear and not bellowing at you through a megaphone.… Read the full article

The BIG Raidho Room | AXPONA 2019

AXPONA 2019 Show Coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

It was the big secret of AXPONA 2019. Usually, it was whispered. The BIG RAIDHO ROOM. You have to see it. Go! Go now!

And so I went. And went. And went. And did not find it.

In fact, I thought it was a joke. I became convinced that the “BIG RAIDHO ROOM” was not a thing. That I was being had.

On the last day of the show, I found it.… Read the full article

RMAF 2018: Raidho Acoustics, SimAudio Moon and a Deep, Deep Window into the Music

IMG_0587

My first hands-on experience with Raidho Acoustics’ loudspeakers occurred a few years ago, when I was pulled into an exhibit room to listen to a new digital technology. I can’t even remember what that product was, but I do remember the small yet very expensive Raidho 1.1 monitors that were in the system. They provided one of the most vivid and clear windows into a musical event I’ve ever heard—albeit with limited low-frequency information. I was so impressed with that demo, and the 1.1s, that I continue to suspect that they’re one of the finest 2-way monitors you can buy…if you can afford them.… Read the full article

AXPONA 2018: Raidho Shines with Chord, SME and Nordost

By | May 16th, 2018|Categories: Nordost, Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , |

Each and every show, Rune Skov seems to get great sound out of his Raidho-based systems. AXPONA 2018 had Raidho paired up with those crazy cats Jay and Richard at Bluebird Music and their sublime Chord Electronics and SME turntables. Cabling was Nordost Valhalla 2 with QB8 Mark 2 power box. Amplification was the relatively compact Chord CPM 3350 integrated amp ($14,400) and on the digital side a Chord Blu transport with M-Scaler technology ($11,788) and DAVE DAC ($12,488), a dynamite digital source.… Read the full article

LA Audio Show 2017: Raidho D1.1 speakers create big sound from small box

FullSizeRender-496-1

I get the impression that Raidho Acoustics is one of those high-end companies that does things in what it believes is the “right” way, no matter the cost.

laas9Raidho essentially confirms this on its website. “At Raidho, we are committed to develop and produce the best loudspeakers ever built,” reads the introductory paragraph. To pursue this lofty goal, Raidho uses extremely high-quality parts and materials – many developed within the company itself – and assembles its speakers by hand in its own factory in Denmark.… Read the full article

Raidho Acoustics with Aavik and Nagra – CES 2017

By | January 12th, 2017|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , |

by Rafe Arnott

Serious speakers need serious amplification.
The Raidho Acoustics D-4.1 are what I consider serious speakers, and not just because they’re Danish (who seem serious about high fidelity), it’s because they’re big, and heavy, and need really powerful amplifiers to drive them.
Right?
Not necessarily.
Raidho says that the 140 lbs (each) D’Appolito-configured, floorstanding three-way loudspeakers nominally require more than 50 watts, but that their tests “have seen excellent results with small tube amplifiers.”
Huh.

But these speakers are so big… how can a little tube amp drive them?… Read the full article
