Most days as the editor of a high end audio magazine are fun. Yesterday, was definitely one of the perks of the job. And, a lot of fun.
I was invited by a local distributor to listen to a new 28K monitor from Denmark’s Raidho Acoustics and to have lunch (a very good Pinot, arugula salad, pesto pasta salad and two types of quiche) and an informal chat with its co founder Lars Kristensen. The amiable Viking was most informative and passionate about Raidho’s newest monitor, the D-1.
Most of the discussion centered around the inhouse design of the diamond woofer cones, the tweeter of the D-1 and Raidho’s philosophy of sound and music. It was riveting. More about these remarkable industrial designs will be discussed in the upcoming review. I think this will be the first of the D-1.
Watch for the review coming in late April. Without leaving my fastball in the locker room, I would say this monitor’s main competition (forget your conceptions of this type of speaker’s sound) is the magical Magico Q1, the very best, by far, small speaker I know.
Stay tuned. I’ll also report on the Raidho room from the upcoming New York Show mid April.
