AirShip Wireless Connectivity

The Purpose to Our Passion

We have prided ourselves on our ability to deliver extremely high levels of sound quality and rock solid wireless connection protocols since our first wireless design over a decade ago. Airship surpasses any earlier design using a 5.8 gigahertz signal , a frequency previously reserved for military use by the US military and NATO. It results in the fastest, most transparent wireless the design team has ever experienced and verges on hardwired transparency level.

Ultra-high quality wireless confers a number of benefits to the REL owner, notably, freedom of placement. This permits extreme performance without the cumbersome tether of a cable, for ideal placement without being limited by the length of a wire, which can lead to a better sounding, less cluttered experience. So now you can place subs in distant corners, along glass walls, or on hardwood floors to ensure a superior experience, sonically and aesthetically.

The Best of Both Worlds

High Level and Theatre .1 Connections Simultaneously

Airship permits simultaneous use of our new 5.8 gig connection for both 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 simultaneously, meaning you can use your REL for any form of music or theater without adjusting anything further .

Our High-Level input is designed to accept the stereo (two-channel) signals from the speaker terminals of your receiver, integrated amplifier or power amplifier(s). 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 our Sub-Bass System. Along with our extremely fast, natural sounding Filter Circuits, Airship ensures you receive the benefits of REL’s superior system integration since RELs are known the world over for their perfect, rich integration without the ability to sonically locate the subwoofer’s origin.

For top theatre performance, the .1/LFE circuit is granted its own dedicated wireless channel which allows for the largest, most dynamic special effects in theatre to be properly replicated in all their glory. Airship delivers 2 channels in parallel, one for music and theatre in High Level (or Low Level, increasingly needed for active wireless speakers for example) and a second channel for .1/LFE in theatre use.

When both are used correctly, normal theatre transforms because the cold, edgy sound most theatres deliver becomes rich and full-bodied. Dialogue and atmospheric effects take on new drama and realism because the full range of sounds are provided every moment of the movie by our High Level, whilst the .1 channel delivers extra emphasis during the 15-20 minutes of a movie that this channel is active. Truly the best of both worlds.

Pairing Made Simple

(No laptops or Apps Required)

We designed and engineered Airship to deliver a simple, elegant pairing that operates as smoothly as it looks. Just plug both in within a few seconds of each other, push a button and the Airship seeks out its mating receiver and pairs with it. Standard time to pair is less than 5 seconds.

The Case For AirShip

Freedom and Performance

For many, the ability to listen to the highest quality of audio in glorious full range sound while placing their RELs perfectly for sound quality and best appearance has been a dream beyond their reach. Airship finally allows the final barriers between performance, placement and attractive room design to be replaced by a newfound freedom. Once experienced, you will never return to yesterday’s compromises.

I’m in Awe.

I’m simply in awe of the fact that REL has managed to create a wireless device that preserves the sound as much as it were a wired device - bravo!

And, most importantly, no degradation of quality signal and performance to my T/i5 Sub.

Flexible, faultless performance

I have a challenging 'L' shaped listening room that has proved difficult to locate the subwoofer in a satisfactory position in relation to my normal listening position for home theatre and movie viewing. Whilst I could locate a more suitable position for the subwoofer in terms of a smoother response it was in practical utilising a wired connection to the .1 LFE from the AV receiver to the LFE input on the subwoofer input. I decided to purchase the REL HT-Air Wireless as it has little compression (compression gives a brittle thin sound) and much lower latency (delay) than other manufacturers offerings. Installation was so simple, quick and the transmitter and receiver units 'saw' each other straight away and have stayed connected without any dropouts.
I adjusted the Subwoofer settings to the new subwoofer position taking into account the small latency and have been enjoying both the much improved performance now provided and impressive stability and quality that is to be expected by REL.

I would also like to state that ordering direct from REL was both easy and swift along with REL offering me support should I require it.

Very impressed and highly recommended

REL Delivers a Wireless Gem !!!

I had previously purchased 2 T/Zero subs and with the high level connection, when the amplifier was turned off, it created hum. I tried the usual remedies (using the earth/ground--the RCA LFE connection, etc.), but nothing worked. I was thus forced to shut off the sub with the master switch every time--somewhat annoying and when I forgot, I was later greeted with a annoying hum.
I am happy to report that the HT-Air solved the humming issue entirely, and while it uses the low level connection, I was able to adjust the subs to a level close to the high level connection and the annoyance is gone.
The $100 price point is phenomenal. Fast response time, decent (30 foot) coverage and quality construction make this wireless connection worthy of the REL name.

The All New S/812

Shattering Performance Barriers

S/812 takes REL’s medium chassis concept to reference-like levels of performance and does so with style, beauty and devastating power. It delivers incredible levels of all ‘round performance for both music and film sound, gives customers a taste of what our reference models offer, and does so at a fraction of the cost.
