    D-5's Down on the Bayou

    Grateful for all the posts by the Raidho devotees. Been absent from the audiophile hobby for 10 years... Walked into a room with D-1's playing and carried them out under my arms. Went to RMAF and saw Lars' demo of the X-3's... couldn't sleep. D-5's arrived last night; what a spectacular instrument. Can't wait to upgrade everything--

    Cheers-

    Talk about the ultimate home theatre system! Are those ML amps between the D5's and the subs?

    ML33's. They'll probably be the first components to go, even though I've enjoyed them for years. Based on initial impressions, The D-5's should benefit from a modern amp with a high damping factor. We'll see, still breaking in...

    Re: D-5's Down on the Bayou

    Welcome to A.S., Allen! That is quite a home theater and the Raidho D5 look awesome on the flanks. I've had my D3 Version 2 since March and I love them. Tremendous musicality, organic, speed and resolution. They do it all.

    Best of luck,
    Ken

    Just remember the sound will change for the first few hundred hours of run in. Looks like a great speaker placement from the pic.

    Congratulations! I loved my D3s, but downsized, and am amazed by what my D1s can do.

    Re: D-5's Down on the Bayou

    Thank you. The D-1's are amazing. I added 2 JL Audio e110's to mine per JV's recommendation and have an unbelievable presentation in my library. That's what led me to the D-5's; I had to know--
