Premium All-in-One Hi-Fi System.
Small and sleek, Technics’ new all-in-one system allows you to enjoy music with the very highest sound quality and from a diverse range of sources and devices. Whether you’re listening via high-res network audio, CD, USB memory device, USB-DAC or smartphone, control is easy and efficient via the latest Technics smartphone app.
The OTTAVA speaker system has two woofers arranged symmetrically. The result is high-quality and immersive sound from a HiFi system that can subtly fit into the corner of a room or small cabinet.
The Raidho Acoustics C-3.2 is a true 3-way speaker design. It is built with a dedicated Raidho Ceramix mid-range driver and three Raidho Ceramix woofers, which are paired up with the Raidho Ribbon Tweeter. The greatest advantage of the 3-way design is that the narrower pass-band of the drivers makes it possible to optimize and tailor them closer to the desired sonic capabilities. The optimization of the drivers makes the moving mass of our mid-range smaller, the membrane lighter and stiffer, and makes it possible to fit the mid-range with a lighter and an even softer spider and surround. This allows for more resolution and better transient handling in the music performance where the mid-range meets the tweeter. The C-3.2 is designed for mid-sized rooms, and it will let you get the very best out of your music collection.
Just like the other models, Raidho has made an effort to create just the right look for a cabinet containing so many units. Raidho has an unrivaled finish, with a solid feel when you give in to that irresistible urge to touch the exclusive veneer and millimetre-thick varnish. Technically, Raidho has focused on arranging the units to give an optimal sound distribution, without strain, while the expression is clear, harmonious and powerful.
Listening to a C 3.2 you get the feeling of being at the centre of the musical experience. C3.2 simply picks up all the real sounds there are in the medium – loyally and in absolutely perfect balance.
Available in Black ($41,500) and Walnut-Burl ($48,500)
Full Featured Control Amplifier
The C-300 is equipped with two built-in DACs (PCM and DSD) and a phono section. It also comes with three line inputs: two single-ended and one balanced, and an RCA and an XLR output.
The Aavik C-300 RIAA section is based on a discreet, floating, balanced, ultra-low noise, bipolar input circuit. By nature, the topology of a moving coil cartridge is a floating, balanced signal generator. We have kept this floating, balanced circuit topology throughout the phono stage. The floating input circuitry allows us to use ultra-low noise, bipolar transistors. By paralleling several transistor pairs, we have created a dead-quiet input section. The Aavik C-300 phono stage has a 62 dB gain, and the cartridge loading is adjustable from 50 ohm to 5 kOhm.
The phono section of the Aavik C-300 will let you explore the amazing details and musical depths of your vinyl collection!
The Aavik C-300 is equipped with two DACs: one for PCM digital formats and one for DSD formats.
The Aavik C-300 PCM DAC section is designed around 5 digital inputs, which all excel in performance. The DAC performs without any digital signature, which makes any music sound “analog”. The digital circuits are created with the best high frequency skills tools available and great care was embedded in the PCB design. We made a lot of effort to ensure we have a 100% equal treatment of the differential signals, with time-aligned, ultra-short, 4-layer PCB traces. The DAC's circuits are fitted with ultra-low jitter onboard clocks in order to minimize timing errors in the digital-to-analog conversion. In the Aavik C-300 all DAC circuits are isolated with 13 onboard, separate low-noise, high-PSSR voltage regulators each feeding only one stage of the signal handling. The digital signals from the 5 digital inputs are routed to an ASRC, where they are resampled and re-clocked to 200 kHz/24 bit PCM, feeding current output DAC chips. The current-to-voltage conversion is performed with a differential floating topology with virtual GND. This isolates the signal path from the potential GND noise and signal induced GND modulation.
The Aavik C-300 DSD DAC section features a very simplistic gain structure with only one gain stage and a purely passive LC type analog filter, made from shielded coils and the highest quality capacitors available. The passive 6th order filter is placed at 60 kHz where it effectively removes all switching artefacts without adding excess noise in the audio-band. A pure and unique method of making the D to A conversion without passing the signal through any type of DAC chipset and software based noise shaping.
The 2 USB inputs are galvanic isolated to avoid noise pollution from the host. This isolates the signal path from the potential GND noise and signal induced GND modulation. The DSD USB input has signal priority over the PCM USB input. Whenever there is DSD signal present from the host the USB DSD input will be active.
Line Stage/Volume Control
The Aavik C-300 line stage uses a unique, inverted, virtual GND amplifier topology, which preserves the finest musical details on a dark, quiet, black background. The line stage has two inputs with 9 dB gain and one line input with 6 dB gain.
The volume control is realized with microprocessor-controlled resistor-ladder (R2R) circuit inside the feedback loop of a virtual GND amplification stage. The volume control regulates from -80 dB to 0 dB in approx. 1 dB steps.
The Raidho Acoustics C-2.2 is a 2.5-way floorstanding loudspeaker. It is built with the same unique qualities as the C-1.1, but with a somewhat larger cabinet and an additional Raidho Ceramix Driver. This relieves the workload on the upper Ceramix Driver, which results in a deeper bass and an even higher dynamic headroom. The extended bass frequency and the larger dynamic contrasts give the music performance more substance and a very natural tone color.

With the X300A Wireless Digital Hifi Speaker you have the freedom to stream music wirelessly via Airplay® or DLNA from your computer, smartphone or any other mobile device in a way that allows you to experience uncompromised high fidelity sound. Everything about the X300A Wireless digital hi-fi speaker system is designed to make your enjoyment of music easier as well as more intense.
Like a professional studio monitor, each X300A wireless speaker has two dedicated class AB amplifiers – one for LF/MF and one for HF – to ensure accurate, distortion-free sound reproduction. Speaker hum and electromagnetic interference are minimised by using toroidal transformers of the type specified for audiophile grade hi-fi amps. With digital USB connection between speakers, the X300A wireless system turns your desktop, laptop, tablet or other mobile device into a source of listening pleasure to true high fidelity standards.
A dedicated high quality DAC in each speaker virtually eliminates interference by separating decoding from playback, allowing the X300A system to reproduce the full depth and complexity of high resolution music files to the same standard as the artist intended. All this high end technology is complemented by the award-winning Uni-Q ‘point source’ driver array derived from KEF’s flagship speaker, the Blade. The result is a spacious, accurate and exquisitely detailed sound field, whatever device your music is played from.
