Below is a review from HIFI mag:
The Eben sonic prowess came together on two of my favorite torture tests for loudspeakers: piano and voice. The Eben's portrayal of the sound and scale of the piano was incredibly realistic and compelling. Yes, the perspective is typically first row rather than mid-hall, yet there were even times when the sound approximated what I hear while sitting at the keyboard, talk about subtle details coming through on recordings. To get an idea of the Eben's low-frequency extension, I used a Jorge Bolet recording of Liszt's Funérailles [London], which repeatedly, and hauntingly, hits the lowest 'C' on a piano. After hearing the note (with a fundamental frequency of 32.7Hz) on the Eben, I ran over to my Grotrian Steinweg concert grand in the next room and played the same low 'C'. The overall sound was remarkably similar, far closer than I would have expected. Another surprise was the clarity of fast octave-runs in the bass on many of my favorite Chopin pieces, which on most speakers sound slow and muddy, but not on the Eben's. The bass matches the speed of the treble which, in turn, matches the brilliance of the top end of a Steinway. I found myself devouring my classical and jazz collections of piano recordings and appreciating the artistry of some of favorite performers like Emil Gilels and Bill Evans even more.Voices were also riveting. The Eben uncovered subtle cues, like the changes in a singer's breathing, moisture in the mouth, and the launch of consonants, without artificial or additive sibilance. The image of the vocalist was well focused and behaved, staying at or behind the plane of the speaker rather than being thrown forward into your lap as some horn speakers do. Incredible dynamic with one of the sweetest midranges and highest resolution you can get in a tweeter. If you hear any distortion, it's most likely your cartridge mistracking or amplifier clipping, or tape-saturation on the recording.

Raidho Acoustics develops and manufactures loudspeakers for people with a sense for aesthetics. Those who think sound should be fantastic, want their listening experience to be out of the ordinary and expect good-looking equipment with an exceptional design and cool visual expression.The unique technology of Raidho Acoustics is an extension of the classic technologies that have been at the heart of HiFi loudspeakers for years. But Raidho Acoustics have turned away from the mainstream development of “synthetic sound” or simulated HiFi. We operate with the genuine article.
Excellent condition pair used mostly as dual center channels only(80HZ+) in my home theater with my Apogee's. These are incredible speakers with their world class ribbon tweeter to the potent/quick ceramic coated bass drivers. Internally wires with Nordost Valhalla cables. Don't let the small size fool you, these are fullrange(ported tuned to 28hz) very dynamic speakers!
