Introducing No. 25, commemorating our quarter
century of building the finest sub bass systems
and representing the largest, most powerful and
technologically advanced subwoofer we have ever
made. This is how truly reference-level bass looks,
feels and sounds.
When we began designing Serie S, we set out, quite literally, to revolutionize subwoofers. Serie S SHO combines a higher performance level than we have ever set out to deliver within our mid-level range, able to elevate higher-end systems in medium to large rooms. Winner of the Home Cinema Choice Best Buy Award and AV Tech Media Best Subwoofer.
As a lifelong baseball fan, I have been struck by my REL’s transformative ability to conjure up crowd size and properly recreate the scale of the stadia of games I am watching—or just listening to the game in the background for accompaniment.
We make subwoofers, only subwoofers. When we set out make T/i, we wanted to make the best possible subwoofer for small to mid-size systems, adjusting only it's size, not it's speed, clarity or chest thumbing low-end. Mission accomplished.
If we’ve done our job properly, an informed customer should be seeking to add the foundational bass that is the entire structural under-pinning of their system. The REL(s) is/are the single most cost effective way to dramatically transform your system from a technically good, but frequently uninvolving, lifeless stereo system to a thing that lives and breathes the soul and pulse of music or film. No matter what media or resolution, the appropriate RELs can uplift a system and make it soar.
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.
