The new Raidho Tantalum-Diamond (TD) cone: Even though our Diamond cone drivers, are already groundbreaking in their technology and performance, we still don’t stop there - improving our technology is simply a part of the Raidho DNA. With the new Tantalum technology, we have managed to better our already class leading diamond cones. By adding Tantalum to our ceramic cones, before the diamond layer, we have created a 5 layer sandwich cone, which is even stiffer than our already extremely stiff diamond cones, while at the same time adding huge amounts of inner damping. This means that these cones move completely like a piston without any break-up nodes way above the human hearing limit. (Actually even higher than most high quality tweeters) What we gain from this is lower levels of distortion than any other drive unit on the market, lightning fast transient response, matching our world-famous ribbon tweeters perfectly. The extremely low levels of distortion, also ensures a very musical and organic reproduction – bringing you closer to the music than you thought possible.
Building on the succes of the D4.1, our chief-designer, Benno Baun Meldgaard and his team, has done the impossible, and made our D4.1 even better. Based on the succes of our flagship, the TD4.8, we have adapted the technologies used here to create the new TD4.2. Carrying on the beautiful design of Michael Børresen, the TD4.2 has moved on to the next level, introducing our acclaimed Tantalum-Diamond-drivers and the updated ribbon-tweeter continues the legacy as one of the best tweeters in the world. By adding the Tantalum-coating to the already excellent Diamond-drivers, we have achieved a cone which is even stiffer. The cone is a 5-layer cone with even higher levels of inner damping. In combination with the upgraded magnet system with the new SD-cap, stronger magnets and better voicecoil, the TD4.2 will give the qualities of the TD4.8, but in a size that is a little more room friendly. The tweeter also is upgraded with a more powerful magnet system, making it more sensitive, but with the same open and detailed sound that is a Raidho- trademark. The internals of the cabinet has also been improved, resulting in deeper frequency response and a sound that is more natural while providing a huge soundstage.
We are very proud to introduce the new TD1.2 to the world. This model carries on the legacy of the well-acclaimed C1.2 and D1.1. The TD 1.2 takes sound reproduction to a whole new level, that utilizes the fantastic looks from the D-series, but everything inside the enclosure has been changed, using brand new innovative designs and technology. After months of hard work, we are extremely happy to present our new, in-house developed, mid/woofer-driver, with a new and very unique design of both the magnet system but also the rest of the unit. The chassis is designed to have a minimum of influence on the airflow and seek to eliminate reflections occurring inside the enclosure. The new design results in a record-low distortion that is audible immediately after pushing play. The TD1.2 uses our new 5-layer tantalum/diamond-cone with increased level of inner damping in combination with our new, proprietary edge-wound titanium voice-coil with drastically improved magnetic field and increased power handling. Combined with the unique driver-design, this is the strongest underhung motor-design on the market (1.1 Tesla/Patent Pending). The result - a drastic increase in dynamic performance. The TD1.2 also incorporates our redesigned ribbon tweeter, used in our TD4.8 and TD4.2, utilizing a more powerful magnet system and optimized acoustic shape of the rear chamber, resulting in a much higher resolution and a distortion level that has been reduced with 35 dB compared to the already extremely low levels in our old ribbon tweeter. The crossover has been completely redesigned with maximum focus on correct phase-response at all frequencies, while maintaining the optimal impulse-response. The new driver-design and the optimized crossover also leaves room for smaller amplifiers since the sensitivity is heavily improved. The TD1.2 is now an easy load for most amplifiers. The TD1.2 will deliver a extremely dynamic, natural, and extremely musical performance, while at the same time moving the limits for power handling in a small speaker. The TD1.2 sets a new reference point for speakers - giving a true-to-life dynamic sound with an almost limitless soundstage, allowing the speakers to disappear -leaving you with glorious music!
