Do one thing,
do it perfectly. Confirmation of RELís motto arrives in the form of
the all-new BRITANNIA Series. Just once in the past decade has this
proud company issued forth with a new range. Avoiding gratuitous embellishment,
REL continue to extol their classic virtues of conservative design principles;
mil-spec approaches to amplifier construction, leading edge acoustic
designs, and a general impression of quality that reminds some of that
other great British icon, Rolls Royce.
With BRITANNIA, an entirely new generation of high-end music and film
sound devotees are poised to revel in the fruits of RELís labors. These
newest offerings are superbly crafted to perform dual roles in both
the most sophisticated music or film sound systems with equal facility.
The combination of an ultra-powerful new range of bass-engines, mounted
forward firing, and with a patented twin-chamber exhaust, venting out
the bottom produce truly prodigious low frequency output with startling
speed. Last but not least, that most British of all virtues-value-is
present everywhere one looks.
The flagship of the new
REL armada, B1, produces truly prodigious low bass at output levels
that will awe most listeners. An all-new ultra-long throw 12”
driver designed to support several thousands of watts has been paired
with an ultra high current amplifier resulting in bass that can only
be described as frightening.
Quality isn’t everything;
it’s the only thing. All Britannia Series feature 24 crossover
frequencies from 22-96Hz, using precision trimmed circuits. REL’s
unique design permits operation of both high-level support of main speakers
and .1 channel from one B1something no other manufacturer offers.
Massive power supplies and outstanding build quality are the cornerstones
of REL’s reputation.
