RAZZ Limited Edition
A Fresh New Look
See pictures, a description, and pricing on Volti Audio speakers in stock
The Razz-LE is the same great Razz speaker design that we’ve been building for a few years now, but with a fresh new look.
The front of the Razz-LE is where you’ll notice the biggest difference compared to the original Razz. The Razz-LE has a veneered, finished front, with no grill to get between you and the music.
You’ll also find veneer on the backs of the Razz-LE as well. And they come standard with black 1″ riser feet with felt bottoms.
Make no mistake, the Razz-LE is identical to the original Razz in quality of sound, robust cabinet construction, pro-audio grade drivers, hand-built ‘split’ crossover design, and superb finish quality.
Available in a fresh new batch of veneer colors – Crimson Red, Deep Blue, Sage Green, and Drift Gray Oak. These are real wood veneers with colored dye that is infused deep into the grain of the wood. Add a little ‘color’ to your system!
Volti Audio Razz-LE speakers cost exactly the same
as the original Razz, just $7,500 per pair
Razz-LE are also available in most of our natural wood veneer finishes as well

The Razz-LE is room-friendly and can be positioned against a wall, in a corner, or pulled out into the room. It is front-ported which allows the greatest flexibility in placement since the port does not rely on, nor is affected by, walls behind or beside the speaker.
The sensitivity and ease of drive make the Razz-LE capable of filling a very large room whereas the superb integration ensures it will also work in an intimate, near-field setting.

Volti Audio is known for building beautiful speakers. We also put an emphasis on durability and longevity.
The Razz-LE comes with real wood veneer applied in a vacuum bag for a glass-smooth surface. We use a “permanent” two-part glue to bond the veneer to the cabinet. By contrast, many manufacturers use PVA glue or contact cement, which are not ‘permanent’ glues.
Volti Audio is known for beautiful finish work. The lacquer finish used on the wood veneer of Razz-LE cabinets is catalyzed and designed to resist damage from UV light. We use a medium-rubbed lacquer finish to allow the character and texture of the wood grain to show through, so you always know you’re looking at a real piece of wood.
You will never find MDF or ‘flakeboard’ used in the construction of a Volti Audio speaker cabinet. We think of our speakers as 100-year products, and we use the finest wood, adhesives, and fasteners in the construction of the Razz-LE cabinets. The Razz-LE cabinet is built from 1” thick Baltic Birch plywood, fully braced, and properly damped. We welcome comparisons to any other speaker – especially in the same price range as the Razz-LE.
Driver and crossover components are Pro-Audio grade, meaning they are very durable and capable of being used a lot harder than they ever will be in your home. This means that the drivers are never near their max, and will last a very long time because of that. The Razz-LE woofer for instance, is capable of continuous 600 watt input – ten times what it will ever be called upon to handle – and unlike woofers with rubber surrounds, it has a resin impregnated cloth surround that will last for decades.
The Razz speakers truly do offer both Beauty and Durability
Craftsmanship . . .
. . . is the quality that comes from creating with passion, care, and attention to detail. It is a quality that is evident in every aspect of the Razz-LE speaker.
The materials used in the Razz-LE are meticulously selected for their physical beauty, durability, and sonic characteristics.
The look, feel and sound of the Razz-LE is the combination of great craftsmanship, great materials and attention to details.
Go ahead, find another speaker on the market at any price point that is made with 1″ Baltic Birch plywood. Most cabinets are made with inferior materials, such as MDF or ‘flakeboard’
Take a look at the crossovers in other speakers, even ones costing many times more than the Razz-LE. You probably will not see the quality level of components used, nor will you see one of the very nice features of the Razz-LE, crossovers that are separated into two plates inside the cabinet to minimize interference between the low and high filter components.
Many other quality details can be found on Razz-LE speakers, like custom input plates with high quality five-way binding posts (bi-wire-able), drivers mounted with machine screws and inserts (rather than wood screws into flakeboard), the use of ‘No Rez’ brand damping material, and polyurethane ‘lifetime’ adhesives.
The Razz-LE features a 1” compression bullet tweeter that extends frequency response smoothly out to 20Khz without the annoying and harsh sounding peaks that other high-sensitivity horn tweeters exhibit. The Razz-LE provides high frequency detail and smoothness above and beyond other horn speaker designs.
The Razz-LE features a 2” outlet midrange compression driver with a dome shaped composite diaphragm, an annular phase plug, and a neodymium magnet – feeding into the 2” throat of a large midrange horn with a shallow profile. The midrange is carefully voiced and integrated through the crossover and with extra damping applied to the horn lens. The midrange of the Razz-LE is where the music lives!
The Razz-LE features a cutting-edge woofer, with low distortion, high sensitivity, a neodymium motor with a built-in demodulation ring, cast-aluminum frame, and a host of other features that all work together to help the Razz-LE produce tight, low bass that is unexpected at 97db sensitivity in a cabinet this compact. The bass from the Razz-LE is the foundation of the music and it is an impressive foundation!
The Razz-LE features hand-built crossovers with very high quality Metalized Polypropylene Capacitors, 14ga air-coil, hand-wound copper inductors, and metal-oxide resistors, all mounted on separate high and low frequency wooden boards that are carefully located within the cabinet to reduce vibration and interference with driver magnets. These Volti Audio crossovers are the key to the great integration and overall voicing you hear from the Razz-LE.
The Razz-LE is able to reproduce nine-full-octaves of rich, smooth, ultra-low distortion sound because of these great drivers and components.
Like all Volti Audio loudspeakers, the Razz-LE has an exceptionally high parts and labor cost relative to the selling price.
Our chosen business model is to sell direct to our customers, without dealers or distributors. This essentially cuts the price of our speakers in half compared to loudspeakers sold through dealers.
The quality of materials, the craftsmanship, the meticulous finish work, and our direct-to-customer sales approach make Volti Audio loudspeakers the best value for money loudspeakers available.
