The new Raidho’s vs the new Borressen’s ?
I thought that the Z5’s were voiced a lot closer to neutral as compared to the older Raidho’s that I’ve heard over the years at shows. Not my favorite.  I’m going to hear the new TD models and maybe a pair of the original D5.1’s.Another speaker th... 
The new Raidho’s vs the new Borressen’s ?
Yep, I’ve heard the cryo version. 
The new Raidho’s vs the new Borressen’s ?
The big electrostatics are too close to the Maggies in size and amplifier requirements, and overall sound character.   For my room size I’d have to go BIG on the Soundlabs.  The bigger Raidho’s and Borressen’s can fill a larger sized room with sou... 
The new Raidho’s vs the new Borressen’s ?
I have three SVS SB-4000’s that I use with the 20.7’s.  They definitely help!  I use them in a ‘distributed’ configuration; one centered against the front wall, one on the left wall about 3 feet in front of the 20.7, and a third in the rear right ... 
The new Raidho’s vs the new Borressen’s ?

Raidho TD4.2
Well, I do have plenty of listening room!  My room is 29’-10” long by 22’-9” wide by 11 ‘ high.It’s a dedicated room so I have a lot of leeway on where I can position speakers and also where I can sit.  I like a BIG sound and that’s one reason why... 
40th Anniversary Pre Amp and Repair History
Some cars are “lemons”, they’re just poor designs that constantly breakdown and/or are ridiculously unsafe.The primary purpose of this discussion is to poll other 40th Anniversary users/owners to see if they’ve had similar problems with that piece... 
40th Anniversary Pre Amp and Repair History
I get mixed reviews on this topic. Some people tell me that they’ve owned AR for years and never experienced a single problem; others tell me they’ve had numerous issues.  This thread is not about bashing AR or any other audio company.  More curio...

A Top DAC
I’m going to get an in-house demo of the DCS Rossini and the external clock this weekend.  It’ll be an interesting comparison to my Analog DAC.  Will post my impressions early next week.
