    Re: Raidho, Aavik, Ansuz

    That's really great that you were able to pick and choose. When I look at these, I see what resembles the darker, earlier cabinets and then the lighter ones; at least when I went from D3 to D3.1.

    Listening party?!?!

    Re: Raidho, Aavik, Ansuz

    Morning Le Roy.
    They have 36hrs on them now. I'm running them 7/24. They have quite a way to go especially the tweeters. Most folks getting Raidho's for the first time probably wouldn't notice it but this is now my 7th pair of breaking in new or near new Raidho's (long story). So it's pretty obvious to me.

    Forgot to mention Raidho also offered me the 5 way binding posts which I have on these. Not that I would ever use spades but I know that was a complaint some have expressed to Raidho so they offer that now.

    looks awesome! how is the bass in your room (btw, we talked at length on audiogon - i'm skanda over there as well)

    unrelated/related - anybody have impressions on the new tantalum diamond driver stuff they are putting out? i believe at munich they called it the th4.8?? i just gathered this from some facebook posts so i might be totally off. did it sound like they had flattened out the frequency response?

    Re: Raidho, Aavik, Ansuz

    The new speakers right now lack bass and the highs are a tad etchy. That's based on the fact I had my local dealers demo 3.1's for almost 3 weeks. But once they break in the bass will be really good in the sweet spot and a bit boomy in the coroners of the room. But that has always been the case with my room. One fear I have is IF I try room treatments it will suck the bass out from the sweet spot.

    I too would be interested in what people think of the D4.8 vs the D4.1.
