Rehdeko

In an effort to preserve a piece of audio history, I have PDFed an article written by Rehdeko about their philosophy behind designing their loudspeakers. This article is very interesting and I find it to be as valuable as the literature Paul Klipsch used to publish back in the day. Please remember this article was loosely translated from French, so when they say "measurements that slice" laugh a little!

For those who are not familiar with Rehdeko loudspeakers, they were a French outfit that made a line of revolutionary single driver/full range loudspeakers in the 80's and 90's.

Do also refer to the complimentary things Ken Kessler had to say about Rehdeko in the June 2006 issue of HiFi News when he found to his amazement that they were used by Dartzeel as their reference speakers.

Re: Rehdeko

Yeah I was totally put off by what Ken said, I am not sure if he just hated Rehdeko that much or just trying to take a cheap shot at other reviewers who swear by them.

What I do know is that Dartzel, Crimson Electronics and DNM Electronics all use Rehdeko 175's as their reference to this Day! These companies as many know are held in the deepest of regard for their ability to build some of the best electronics bar none, to suggest they are deaf as Ken did really makes me wonder what is going on.

Anyway, I hope some of you all have been able to check out the documents, I know they are in PDF format, trust me it is worth messing with it.
