    Raidho D5.1 Upgrade

    Upgrade described by the designer Michael Borresen:

    https://youtu.be/JO2fVCvp0Ac

    For the D5 owners considering the upgrade, a review of the D5.1 is in October issue of The Absolute Sound. I've committed to the upgrade and have it scheduled for October 10th or 11th. The nice thing is that Lars and Michael come to your home to personally install the new mid-range drivers, crossovers and other accoutrements.

    I am very excited and filled with anticipation!

    Hi Leroy,

    Looks like Christmas is coming early for both of us this year. The 5.1's sound terrific on the video. Perhaps even lower noise than the 5's, if that's possible. I look forward to reading the TAS review when it comes out. It's wonderful that Raidho offers such an upgrade to maintain your speakers as the latest and greatest.

    Best,
    Ken

    And people are complaining about Magico introducing the S series mk 2 after 4 years

    Anyway, sounds like a substantial upgrade. I bet thay will sound great.
