Raijintek Paean Review

Raijintek Paean Review

Introduction

We’ve seen some pretty nice stuff from Raijintek recently, to the point where we’re pretty much going to forget about the odd quality issue they had when they first came on the scene.  So what’s the Paean all about?  Well, although a not entirely new concept, it is fairly rare to see an open frame architecture case that combines 4mm thick hair silk anodised Aluminium, with 5mm thick tempered glass panels.  To bring us this stunning aesthetic Raijintek have had to make a few concessions, let’s hope they haven’t ventured too far in the direction of form over function.  To give us a bit of an inkling as to how things stack up, let’s have a look at that all important Tech spec shall we.
