Raidho Acoustics’ newest speaker, the X-1, is an elegant and compact stand-mount mini monitor. The speaker is built with the Raidho Ribbon Tweeter and a bass/mid-range driver with a ceramic membrane. The mid-range driver features our newly developed neodymium based magnet system, long throw and low compression. The loudspeaker is primarily designed for smaller rooms and can be placed relatively close to the rear wall. The X-1 is also ideal for studio work and near-field monitoring.
Evolutionary, Revolutionary and Unique
Raidho Acoustics develops and manufactures loudspeakers for people with a sense for aesthetics. Those who think sound should be fantastic, want their listening experience to be out of the ordinary and expect good-looking equipment with an exceptional design and cool visual expression.
The unique technology of Raidho Acoustics is an extension of the classic technologies that have been at the heart of HiFi loudspeakers for years. But Raidho Acoustics have turned away from the mainstream development of “synthetic sound” or simulated HiFi. We operate with the genuine article. Developments in genuine HiFi had come to a standstill a few years ago, until Raidho came up with some ideas for lifting HiFi sound to new levels. If you are interested, you will find documentation that “we do what we say” on this website, showing the fine test results and awards won in recent years by Raidho models in series 1, 2 and 3. “Speaker of the Year”. We are very proud of these awards, but we are humbled by the accompanying obligation to do things even better. Raidho is not for everyone. You need to know what you are looking for, and then Raidho will deliver what you want.
“Good sound does not just blow in from nowhere. Reproducing good sound calls for expertise and hard work.”
At Raidho we say we have a special knack – so we do not let just anybody assemble a Raidho loudspeaker. What would be the point of innovative developers creating outstanding units, and skilled carpenters building beautiful cabinets in the best materials, if the elements are not assembled with due respect for the ultimate product that a Raidho loudspeaker really is?
By checking and checking again we make sure that we live up to our own ambitious goals for the products we want to supply to a quality-conscious and discerning audience.
All the units in a loudspeaker are designed, manufactured and assembled by Raidho Acoustics themselves. In the design process we seek to create something unique, and the reward is a very special harmony in the interplay between the design of the cabinet and the design of the sound.
Raidho Acoustics has set path to develop the ultimate driver for loudspeakers. Looking at the driver market today one can see that not much has changed over the last decade. To Raidho there was little doubt that the ridged piston cone approach was the only right path to take in order to make the best possible Raidho dynamic Driver.
The Raidho Ribbon tweeter FTT75-30-8 is a unique sealed ribbon tweeter. The tweeter employs an array of neodymium magnets to create an extremely powerful force field where an ultra thin membrane is suspended. The membrane weighs less than 0.02 g. Due to low mass the tweeter stores no energy and has no resonances. The performance is extraordinaire and the tweeter leaves absolutely no fingerprint on the speaker system.
