That's why I'm somewhat baffled. His pronunciation (other than that of some of the speakers of recordings that have recently been added) is usually as close to perfect as it gets.
Listening to it again, it seems to me it's neither clearly "rankontas" nor clearly "renkontas", but maybe somewhere in between. (Though still somewhat closer to "rankontas", I'd say.)
