    If you havenít heard it, you have no opinion

    Worst is the guy who probably didnít even watch a YouTube video, but knows his favorite electronics will save the day for every room at every show, no matter what.

    Re: If you havenít heard it, you have no opinion

    ...And then there was this guy who pulled every link on the Internet he could find to promote a certain brand of speakers he was brand ambassador for, absolutely comical.

    It did end a bit sadly though...

    The great irony is that Raidho purchased Gamut and now has the Gamut designer, Benno Baun Meldgaard designing all their new speakers beginning with the TD 3.8ís (http://raidho.dk/team/benno-baun-meldgaard/). The TD 3.8ís were his first full design, with 2.8 and 1.8 to follow (launching in September). Now they have 8 inch drivers for the bass instead of those stupid 4 inch drivers for the bass which got overloaded and popped easily.

    I heard the TD 3.8ís at Munich and was very impressed.

    Roy Gregory gives his impressions here: http://www.theaudiobeat.com/highend2...019_raidho.htm

    The tweeter remains terrific and smooth and doesnít rip your ears off or ring.

    Also interesting that Raidho has now partnered with Nordost for cabling and Chord for electronics.

    Not surprised, 8Ē drivers should be able to produce proper bass.

    Wish Raidho all the best Mike. After listening to the TD 3.8s at Munich are you thinking about picking up the brand again?

    They contacted me two weeks ago. Itís at least worth a conversation. Since it looks like Tyler dumped the brand (https://www.audiogon.com/listings/li...-1s-full-range), thereís hardly anyone left here in the U.S. and it appears they may have righted the ship. Amazing what some key personnel changes can accomplish.

    But I get contacted about picking up brands all the time. There are a few Iím considering. I just added a new brand, Fyne Audio (https://suncoastaudio.com/product-tag/fyne-audio/). Iím the first U.S. dealer (watch for the copy cats now! LOL). I was blown away by their concentric driver speakers at Munich. The top 5 guys from Tannoy left and started Fyne audio. They have amazing expertise and $$ behind them. Their speakers are very efficient (perfect for the SET tube amps I love to sell like Viva) and the speakers are not the size of a bedroom closet. The Viva Solista will be getting heavy duty on the Fyneís. VAC, Naim and Luxman 590 too. Iíll be starting with three of their lower priced models ($4-11K range).
