mmporsche, I would hope Raidho would improve their rather cheap cabinets for the price of entry. Very nice sounding speakers though. If you’re going to CES, Magico are showing their new S1 Mk2 & S5 Mk2 which have many of the same improvements as the .1 series, but take it a step further with lighter and stiffer cones, and improved cabinet & crossover.
mmporsche, that’s good to hear. I couldn’t make out much from the photo, but i’ll keep an open mind. No argument with thier sound. I can’t say I’m a fan however of thier pricing model. For me, they are way over-priced & thier 2nd hand value gets hammered as a result. Maybe that too will change in future..
"I just learned they have redesigned the cabinets so I am anxious to see what they look like. I just ordered a pair of the D1.1s. I won’t receive them until February but will post pictures/review."
I didn’t hear anything about the cabinet. I have the same non official pictures of the D3.1 back. It looks they just replaced the back plate. It looks like removed the binding posts and replaced them a banana only hole. My dealer is out of town for the holidays so I’ll ask when he comes back.
Congrats on the order. Did you order them in Black or Walnut? Did you order the stands too? When I had the D1’s (in Walnut) I had the all black stands. Not sure if I’m going to have my D2’s upgraded or just get a new pair. They are stating a 3-4 week turnaround for the upgrade.
’Raidho just updated their line...again,lol’
Should Raidho just sit on the sidelines and not improve on their products???? The Diamond series have been out for over 3 years.
Notice the year at the bottom of the link
Raidho was supposed to start shipping Dx.1’s this month. Not sure if they have yet. There is a member on AS that just received a flight case with the upgrade. Raidho is scheduled to arrive on the 18th to do the upgrade. They only do in home upgrades on the D5’s. All the others have to be sent back to Denmark.
I haven't heard them yet but here is a link to someone who has them.
Page 19 post # 183 for the D3.1's - He originally had the D3 V2
As a side note my local dealer should have his D4.1's. Otherwise he only has the D1.1's with the D2.1 & D3.1's that should be in probably late next month hopefully when he gets his B&M store open.
Congrats and I think you'll be impressed. I owned the D1's for almost a year before upgrading to the D2's. I heard the D1.1's at Axpona and for what I heard it was like an entirely different speaker (faster) yet kept that Raidho D series sound. My concern with Axpona is they used the top of the line Ansuz DT-C cables. So since I've had 3 different demos (one in my home with Lars) with Ansuz products I will say they make a pretty considerable difference like an even blacker background resulting in a more open/holographic and natural sound. But those products do come with a pretty hefty price tag. They brought my current system to the next level which I didn't think was possible as good as everything already sounded. Sorry I sent this to Dracule1. I won't even respond to his other thread. It's a long read but it does explain my opinion but in better words.
What are they saying for lead time for the upgrade?
