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

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
