When it comes to visual appearance of compact floorstanding loudspeakers, it does not get more elegant and beautiful than this. The quest for making a much-improved X2t began, using the same improvements from the X1t and more additional ingredients from the ultra high-end sector.

 

Raidho X2t Compact Floor Standing Loudspeaker

The quest for making a much-improved X2t began, using the same improvements from the X1t and more additional ingredients from the ultra high-end sector.

The X2t does everything the compact X1t does, just on a higher level. Additionally, the X2t has dual woofers with which you get much more bass power and a larger scale to the music.

The two 5.25" bass driver units in the new X2t, now has the Tantalum coating. Tantalum belongs to a class of metals known as refractory metals, which are defined by their strong resistance to heat and wear. It has a melting point of 2,996 °C, the fourth highest of all metals. This makes the membrane much stiffer and harder without adding any weight and thereby raising the breakup modes to an incredible 15kHz.

The new crossover in the X2t has quality components that exceeds many other loudspeakers with much higher price tags! On the back you can see the point-to-point hardwiring that is all done by hand. Furthermore, the use of Nordost cable in the crossover is highly unusual and reveals the enormous attention to detail. Needless to say, the internal cable is also from Nordost with Norse technology, which is also used in the Nordost Valhalla models. Truly remarkable.

At a glance

• Elegant and compact floor standing loudspeakers
• Upgraded components in the crossover with point-to-point hardwiring done by hand
• Nordost internal cabling
• Incredibly robust Ceramix drivers now upgraded with Raidho's Tantalum coating
• Capable of handling high levels of clean, continuous power
• Legendary Raidho ribbon tweeter leaves absolutely no fingerprint on the speaker system
• Reflex-loaded via rear vent in the cabinet
• Decoupling is integrated into the feet - no need to use spikes
• Gorgeous Piano Black or Birdseye Maple finishes
• Handmade in Denmark
• Supplied as a pair

A Raidho special among floor standing loudspeakers is also the use of 2.5-way construction. This guarantees a very coherent sound from top to bottom as both drive unit puts out bass, but only the upper does midrange. Decoupling of the speakers is integrated into the feet. So, there is no need for spikes to achieve the best result, because this is done with metal balls, on which the speakers rest on.

The new X2t may not look all that different to the original X2. But in reality, the only thing that stays the same is the visual appearance. The sonic performance on the other hand, is on a whole other planet.

Raidho X Series

This entry-level series for Raidho is in no way entry-level when it comes to technology, performance and visual beauty. The X Series aims to provide listeners with maximum performance for the price. In fact, every X model uses a slightly scaled-down version of the tweeter that sits in their statement speaker, the TD6, worth $399,999.

The visual design of this series is one of beauty and discretion. All models will fit naturally into any home. The floorstanding speakers have an elongated wing shape, curved side panels, and bass reflex ports that looks like no other. The stunning beauty continues on the inside.

Raidho Series X ‍Drive Unit

Not only is this drive unit highly advanced and built in-house in Denmark, it's also a piece of art.

Raidho’s Ceramix technology starts with a thin, aluminium cone and then uses a liquid plasma process and incredibly high voltage to transform the outer skin of the metal to aluminium-oxide ceramic. It’s a time-consuming and costly process, but the finished cone is a unique, natural sandwich, with thin, stiff skins on either side of a ‘softer” aluminium core, creating a structure that is stiffer but with excellent self-damping. Breakups first enter at an incredible 12.5kHz. The motor system consists of strong neodymium magnets focused around a very open system, allowing ventilation to the driver with the benefit of cooling the titanium voice coil and removing part of the design that usually causes distortions.

The result is that the speakers disappear even more from the equation, drawing a soundscape without audible distortion and with a pitch-black background that made the instruments stand out and create a holographic soundstage.

 

About Tantalum

To the drive units, Raidho then adds a micron layer of Tantalum on top of the ceramic layer, making it even harder, while at the same time removing the brittle nature of ceramic. Tantalum is a strong, ductile metal discovered by the Swedish chemist Ekenberg in 1802. Atomic Nr. 73. This rare metal has a high melting point of more than 3000° Celsius, is immune to chemical attacks at room temp, and is an excellent heat conductor.

A composite consisting of Tantalum carbide and graphite is one of the hardest materials known and is used on the cutting edges of high-speed machine tools. For this reason, Tantalum is often used to make components for chemical plants, nuclear power plants, aeroplanes, missiles, and now these flagship Danish loudspeakers.

 

 

The Legendary Raidho Ribbon Tweeter

Raidho's proprietary, trademark ribbon tweeter is a unique design. It is completely designed and built by hand in-house in Denmark. To be exact, it is a planar Magnetic Tweeter due to the tracks in the foil. The foil is 11 microns thick, which means it is 50 times less mass in comparison to a conventional dome tweeter. This is because there is no voice coil and the extremely low weight of the foil (20 milligrams).

The result is virtually no resonances or distortion, and the breakup point is at an incredible 82 KHz! What you hear is amazingly clear and natural sound. All the detail in the world, but no fatigue, no distortion, and no colouration!

 

 

Handmade Speakers

At Raidho we say we have a special knack – so we do not let just anybody assemble a Raidho loudspeaker. What would be the point of innovative developers creating outstanding units, and skilled carpenters building beautiful cabinets in the best materials if the elements are not assembled with due respect for the ultimate product that a Raidho loudspeaker really is? By checking and checking again, we make sure that we live up to our own ambitious goals for the products we want to supply to a quality-conscious and discerning audience.

All the components in a Raidho loudspeaker are designed, manufactured and assembled by Raidho Acoustics themselves. In the design process, they seek to create something unique, and the reward is a very special harmony in the interplay between the design of the cabinet and the design of the sound.
