Are you going to AXPONA 2019 this weekend in Chicago?  Kicking off on Friday 12th it promises to be a fantastic show, here’s the latest news from the exhibitors to tempt you!


Hot on the heels of Raidho’s news about the TD4.1 loudspeaker, the Danish brand are also launching the new TD1.2 Standmount at AXPONA 2019.

Raidho say: “This model carries on the legacy of the well-acclaimed C1.2 and D1.1. The TD 1.2 takes sound reproduction to a whole new level, that utilizes the fantastic looks from the D-series, but everything inside the enclosure has been changed, using brand new innovative designs and technology”.

The TD1.2 uses their new 5-layer tantalum/diamond-cone and, they claim, the strongest underhung motor-design on the market (1.1 Tesla/Patent Pending). The TD1.2 also incorporates Raidho’s redesigned ribbon tweeter, used in the TD4.8 and TD4.2 Recommended retail-prices from 20.500€/ $24,000. Hear them in The Big Raidho Room in The Expo Hall.
