DSP Versus Analog Filters

Why Taking the Easy Way Rarely Works
We talk about the speed of bass reproduction a lot at REL. I recently had an epiphany of sorts after speaking with a YouTube reviewer. It dawned on me during our conversation that most folks have never experienced speed and so there’s little understanding of what speed sounds like; and how speed benefits the listener. So, I thought it worthwhile to dive deep into speed.

One of our core pillars to achieving fast, natural bass relies upon using fast, analog filter circuits whereas many competitors rely on DSP (digital signal processing), combined with digital room correction circuits. In our lengthy experience working with both of these all-digital approaches in the field, they leave a lot to be desired. They promise—and even deliver in some cases—nearly flat bass response. But note that I did not say, near perfect bass response. This is far more than a matter of semantics.

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.
