AirShip Taking Off

REL has been known for true state of the art, great sounding and robust wireless systems since our first effort a decade ago, the LongBow. At the time, most high end audio companies had zero experience with hi res wireless. And the subwoofer brands of the day were offering truly awful off-the-shelf Bluetooth-based wireless with delay times measuring well over 100 milliseconds in some cases. To put that number into context for you, that’s the functional equivalent of having your subwoofer placed in your neighbor’s living room 2 houses away!

We introduced the first zero compression wireless system and it was not just about cold, technical numbers (just 16 ms of delay against a then-standard 120 ms) but sounded great; warm, fast, dynamic and reliable when wireless of the day was cold, dynamically compressed and prone to drop outs and losses, well beneath the standards we all associate with high end audio.

Our success came about because we approached the design of our first wireless effort as we do all design work, as a pure high end audio component (dedicated digital and analog power supplies, superior DACs and ADCs as well as broadcast-quality wireless transmission protocols). It had to be thus to be considered worthy of connecting to the subwoofers we’ve toiled over for decades.

Our Purpose

We make subwoofers. That’s it. Nothing else. No distractions. Nothing to steal our focus. No kidding ourselves that we can be good at everything. No trying to conquer the whole world. We just do our best to conquer our bit of it.

Each day we come in to work in pursuit of only one intention, to produce the most raw, perfect, pure sound possible, to capture the raw intention of the artist. We use the best quality materials, employ the most exacting construction requirements. We think of the problem holistically. We pursue the chase of the perfect experience of sound with an obsessive passion and vigor.

We do it because we love sound. We believe sound can move people more than any other sense. We believe it’s the integration of the bass via the perfect subwoofer that makes everything else better. And, ultimately, there is a great deal of satisfaction to be gained from doing this well, creating something of unique quality, such that you know it is going to inspire. It makes the hard work and the obsessing over each and every detail worth all the effort. That’s our reward.
