    About Raidho Acoustics

    Raidho [Ride-ho]
    Literally: "Ride" or "Wagon"
    Esoteric: Journey

    Key Concepts: the journey of Life, stories, heroism, means of transportation, right action, movement, motion, taking charge, being in control, initiative, adventure, decision-making, direction, counsel, the right path, the inner compass, leadership, kingship, nobility held by merit, moral responsibility, integrity, respect for the rights of others, innate knowledge of right and wrong, celestial procession, rituals

    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 Michael Boerresen 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.

    Michael Borresen - Having worked with Raidho speakers for more than 12 years, I found myself faced with a completely new challenge when I was asked to design a new range of high-performance speakers for the Scansonic brand.

    From the start, I was very focused on building on all the experiences and strengths obtained from designing the Raidho speakers. At the same time, I also had to be aware of the long heritage and the Nordic design tradition of the Scansonic brand. This time, the task also came with a budget and a desire to create the very best possible within financial limits.

    It was clear to me from the very beginning, that some core techniques from the Raidho speakers would be of importance: The speakers had to be designed around a ribbon tweeter that works with at super lightweight diaphragm that is sealed around the edges to allow for a seamless transition to the midrange region.

    Furthermore, they needed to be designed and developed with a speaker driver with a ridged, pistonic-type membrane.

    WEIGHT LOSS FOR RESOLUTION TRANSIENTS AND SUPERB LEADING EDGES
    The MB ribbon tweeter has a membrane with an extremely low mass.
    It is formed by a Kapton-aluminum sandwich that is only 20 um thick, and the resulting mass is app. 0.03 g., which is approximately 50 times less than any conventional textile, ceramic, beryllium or diamond dome. The lower mass translates directly into higher resolution and less material coloration.

    WEAVED CARBON CONES FOR STIFFNESS AND LOW COMPRESSION
    For the MB-series, we have developed a ridged, dustcap free, carbon membrane. By carefully optimizing the shape and stiffness, we have succeeded in making a very quiet woofer that blends beautifully with the ribbon tweeter. The woofer has an overhung magnet system, with long linear stroke and excellent bass performance.

    Raidho Ribbon Tweeter FTT75-30-08

    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.

    Raidho Acoustics/Aavik Acoustics at CES 2015 update -

    Aavik Acoustics U-300 Amp/DAC

    In the world of high-end audio, the different audio components are commonly built as separate boxes: one box for the phono amplifier, another box for the digital to analog converter, a third box for the preamplifier section and one or more separate boxes for the output stage.

    Therefore, one important concept behind the Aavik U-300 -“U” for Unity - was to unite state of the art functions and components into one single, compact, high performance unit. This new amplifier would allow you to enjoy high-end performance, without having to live with numerous, odd-sized boxes and a forever-growing cable snake pit. With the Aavik U-300, you get one unit that has it all. You do not just get an amplifier; you also get 3 analog line inputs, a truly unique performing phono RIAA section and a superb 24 bit/192 kHz DAC.

    Another important reason why we chose “U” for “Unity” is because the Aavik U-300 is joint project between the designer behind the multiple award-winning loudspeakers of Raidho Acoustics and the high performance cables of Ansuz Acoustics, Michael Borresen, and some of the best analog and digital designers that the world has to offer. This ensures that the Aavik U-300 is an integrated amplifier, which is in the top of its league!

    We feel that sound cannot be explained – the U-300 should be heard.
