Form and Function – Musical Majesty and a Majestic Finish
The stunning musical performance of the Raidho X-5 Series deserves an equally striking appearance, a finish that builds on their sleek lines, elegant proportions and commanding visual presence. Maple veneers are hard and closely grained, their sonic properties well-known and widely exploited. The beautiful Birdseye figuring occurs in less than 1% of the Sugar Maple Population, its patterning and character as distinctive to each individual tree as fingerprints to each person. Even rarer still is the conjunction of Birdseye and Burl, the tree’s natural response to injury, a hardened callus that surrounds and isolates the intrusion, like a pearl growing around a grain of sand. Add the disruptive effects of both Birdseye and Burl to the natural qualities of Maple and you introduce diverse, random elements to the grain structure, spots and whorls that are at once uniquely beautiful and uniquely challenging to work with. Birdseye Maple Burl is amongst the rarest and most beautiful veneers. It has also always been the exclusive preserve of only the most skilled of craftsmen.
It has taken the latest diamond and tungsten carbide, segmented spiral cutting heads and most sophisticated, high-speed CNC technology to make Birdseye Maple Burl an available – if expensive – veneer, usually confined to the luxury interiors of private jets and super-cars. But Raidho believes that the ground-breaking musical performance of the X-5 Series deserves the best and most beautiful finishes possible, that its lines and heritage demand the finest and rarest of woods to grace its cabinet. So, as well as classic piano black, the X-5 Series will be available in an optional Birdseye Maple Burl finish. Take one look at the stunning contrast of sharp lines and soaring surfaces with the organic intricacies of the natural wood finish and we are sure that you will agree, this really is beauty beyond price – but at a price that is surprisingly affordable.
The X-5 Series –Not Just Technology or Design Philosophy, More A Musical Way Of Life
What makes our X-5 Series Raidho’s new flagship product? It’s not the most expensive speaker range Raidho makes – but it is the pinnacle of their current thinking. New materials, new technologies, Raidho’s latest engineering and most luxurious finishes – the Radiho X-5 Series boasts them all. At this point we could talk about the resulting increase in resolution and micro-dynamic definition, the deeper and more natural bass response, or the drop in system noise floor. But instead we’d prefer you to listen. We’d like you to hear the dramatic increase in clarity and musical impact. We’d love you to experience the emphatic dynamics and natural, expressive range. But most of all we want to take you on a new musical adventure: to rediscover old favourites, familiar tracks but to hear them – really hear them – for the first time: to marvel at new music and new artists, new opportunities and new discoveries: to fall in love again, with your system and with listening, with your music, your past and your future.
