REL | Arrow – REL have been making subwoofers for over 20 years now making them one if not the most experienced subwoofer companies in the world today. Thanks to their extensive range of subs, whether it is to add the all important LFE to one of today’s blockbusters or to enhance the performance of a 2 channel music system thanks to RELs Hi Level input, they really have got all the basses covered. Please check back shortly as we write our thoughts on REL’s excellent range of subwoofers.
Following on the heels of the acclaimed LongBow™ Wireless, Arrow delivers much of the promise and connectivity of hardwired RELs with the placement flexibility and pure cool factor of great wireless.
Compatible only with Serie T/i. Not compatible with Tzero.
Arrow™ is our zero compression method of distributing wireless and delivers performance similar to our more expensive wireless systems quickly, reliably and without the thin, dried out sound most wireless systems deliver. In part, this is achieved by eliminating the often very slow delivery methods offered by off-the-shelf Bluetooth and wi-fi based systems. Arrow represents something of a cost breakthrough as it uses LSI (large scale integrated circuit chips) technology to lower the cost of our system by about 30% while preserving almost all the performance.
This freedom permits ultra-high performance without the cumbersome tether of a cable, allowing careful placement without being limited by the length of a wire and can lead to a better sounding, less cluttered experience. Giving you the ability to place subs in distant corners, along glass walls, or on hardwood floors where a cable would otherwise destroy the effect
Arrow permits simultaneous distribution of our vaunted HIGH-LEVEL connection AND the .1/LFE needed for high quality theater. In this way, both 2-channel music and multi-channel theater are supported without the need for connecting and disconnecting one’s REL.
The High-Level input is designed to accept the stereo (two-channel) signals from the speaker terminals of your receiver, integrated amplifier or basic amplifier. This has the advantage of ensuring that your subwoofer receives exactly the same signal as the main speakers, which means that the character of the bass from the main system is carried forward into the Sub-Bass System. This is a very important point and together with our Natural RollOffTM circuitry, ensures far superior system integration of the Sub-Bass System with the main system.
Rel designed and engineered Arrow specifically for Serie T/i, allowing them to develop a holistic solution that operates as beautifully as it looks. No tinkering with devices waiting to sync like you find with Bluetooth solutions, because Arrow features a tandem transmitter and receiver that docks and locks directly to the rear of your T/i. Pairing consists of plugging the transmitter and receiver in (about 10 seconds each), then turning the Send unit on and flicking 2 switches. By the time you have released the second switch, you’ll be hearing incredible sound quality emerging from your REL.
