Original post:

13-Nov-2016, 02:06  After having owned several systems I decided to upgrade. 

In 2015 my system was: QNAP Nas —> Linn Klimax DS1 —> Cardas Golden Reference XLR interlink cable —> Krell KAV 300i —> Cardas Neutral Reference speaker cable —> Kef Reference 205 + Rel Strata 5 subwoofer.

I am quite happy with my system now. It is a lot better than my former system in every respect.

Wow! So spacious and tidy with a view of the outside.
Welcome to Devialet Chat, Simon. That's a very nice looking system, but more importantly, I bet it sounds good too. What do you think of the Rhaidos?
Great looking setup!

Did you buy that tv unit, or is it custom made? Looks really clean and i love how the screen looks like it floats above the unit.
Wow, great photos, very nice looking, clean looking setup. I too like the "floating" TV stand.

Welcome!

Thank you for your kind words Axel,

The Raidhos are very good. These speakers were a complete surprise to me when I heard them. I wasn’t looking for these speakers, but they were playing in a shop when I was paying a visit. Later I and went back to the shop and auditioned the Raidhos with my D200. To my ears they were the best of the speakers I auditioned. The Raidhos sound very detailed, neutral, and despite the modest dimensions they are capable of producing a clean and solid low end. I really like them a lot.

Thanks wikeeboy.

the tv was connected to a tv bench by two aluminium tubes.
So, (partly) custom made.

Welcome!

Thank you!
Lovely looking system, like the clean/uncluttered look. Did you try the XT-2 before deciding on the X2?

(PS. I'm sure you've probably changed them, but in your picture your right channel speaker connections are out of phase.)
Hello, Simon. Which Ansuz power cord are you using? I think it is a natural decision to use Ansuz PC if using Raidho loudspeakers.

P.S. Just noted that it is a Ansuz P power cord.
