    Anyone else notice a lot of CDT threads lately?

    Maybe I'm imagining things, but it seems there have been an unnatural number
    of CDT threads and recommendations lately. Maybe I'm just wrong

    It comes and goes.

    Back when I first joined this forum, you'd have thought CDT was the only company selling component sets.

    I like that your not recommending them to justify your own purchase
    as I feel many others do with various products they may own or have
    owned. Carries more weight IMO.

    CDT is just rebadged Vifa, at a considerable markup. I have the HD52 or whatever it's called, the mid is good but not great, the tweeter I threw away.

    The speaker sets go in cycles. In a couple months, Rainbow will be a boner again. Then something else, then something else.

    One thing I want to try, perhaps, is that DD "Audiophile" setup.

    Is that so? The vifa x19 and x25 are pretty good tweeters. I think the Alpine
    type x pros use an x19 derivative. Which vifa tweeters are cdt using?

    I've heard this statement many times...yet to see the proof though.

    Rebadged & Vifa based are two different things.
    Rebadged is using someone else's product & slapping your name on it.
    (Vifa) Based is using an available/proven product to use as a design platform (other companys do this as well).

    Their previous model amplifiers were also rebadged Zed's priced at a considerable markup. They claim their newer amps are an original design, however.
