    Absolutely Carlos. Actually, I have an office in Polanco.

    I will be in MX in August several times but my schedule is already full. If you are in town in September, we should be able to make it happen.

    Saludos,
    Mike

    Also not sure Transparent Audio speaker cables are a very good match with Raidho. I've tried various, though not up to Reference level, and the voicing was never quite right.

    Thinking about a pair of Raidho X-1 speakers .....

    Has anyone mated the X-1s with subs successfully? (Sorry haven't read through the entirety of this thread so apologize if this has already been addressed). It would seem that since they are rated down to 80Hz that crossing subs over in at 80hz might not blend seamlessly with the speakers but not sure...

    same question, would a REL G1/G2 blend well?
