Raidho knocked one out of the park with its amazing D2 speakers which were Lauded by music lovers and reviewers alike as being one of the best speakers at the New york Audio Show 2013 at any price! These moderately sized transducers have reset the bar for tranparency , harmonic accuracy ,speed ,dynamics ,detail and imaging.
John Atkinson had this to say:
The first room I visited at the NY Audio Show was one of the best-sounding. The third of three rooms displaying brands sold by Manhattan retailer Sound by Singer it featured the world premier of Danish Manufacturer Raidho's D2 loudspeaker ($43,500/pair in black, $48,000/pair in gold walnut). The D2 combines the ribbon tweeter used in Raidho's well-regarded D1 minimonitor with two 4.5" woofers that use a diamond-coated cones. Driven by a Soulution 5400 SACD player, a VAC Signature Mk.2 tube preamplifier and 450S tube power amplifier, with Nordost Tyr Mk.2 cables and two Audience Adept AR6 power conditioners, this pair of tower speakers threw a huge soundstage on Jennifer Warnes' "Joan of Arc," with exceptionally smooth and grainfree vocal reproduction.

And no wonder given that the D2 uses two of the same diamond impregnated midrange woofers exalted by Jonathan Valin in his CES 2013 Report on the the D1 in a larger floor standing enclosure .The result is astonishing.The only thing better in larger rooms are the incomparable D3!
