Serie T/x is instantly seen as crisper, fresher, a full upgrade . REL's goals were not simply to improve upon its illustrious predecessor, but to deliver as much as possible of their latest Serie S on a budget. Faster, more transparent sounding system performance awaits you with higher output levels and even greater impact.
the series flagship
The job of any range topper for REL is to deliver more of everything, particularly output and dynamics. The 9x is no different in this regard, as it delivers the goods in both music and theatre applications. 9x, however, delivers a level of intimacy, clarity and speed that means there are no longer trade-offs between the sonic balance of smaller models weighed against the power and scale of a model 9.
The all new 9x has even greater output than before, but the headline news is the way it sacrifices nothing in clarity and transparency to achieve this. At this price it opens the pathway for owners of high performance European floor and stand mounted monitors and smaller panel speakers to enjoy truly full range sound.
a completely redesigned flagship
Performance is everything to REL and so it drives physical design revisions. Their engineers, recognising the need for greater acoustic volume to achieve the goals of greater fluidity and power, turn to the designer who works dimensions to fool the eye into seeing a smaller, more compact footprint even though cabinet volume increases. Using gently rounded corner radii that allows the eye to flow over and see less visual mass. The result is both modern and familiar with no unnecessary adornment.
innovative alloy/fibre bass engines
To achieve higher output with better control requires a complete overhaul of the suspension components. Much like the suspension on a sports car, these items are responsible for the tuning and feel of REL's designs. By increasing the cabinet volume, efficiency is improved yielding higher output for no more amplifier power. Less back pressure inside the cabinet means REL can tune for a stiffer, better controlled driver suspension. They retained the best aspects of their previous design, such as the aluminum center cap responsible for stiffening the lightweight 10” (250mm) cone while adding almost no mass. The updated combination produces considerably better attack and dynamics with greater transparency.
the brains behind the brawn
REL have retained their signature Class A/B amplifiers used in every generation of Serie T since 2006. Reliability is the key and with some 200,000 and counting of this range leading long happy lives, Serie T/x owners can feel certain of REL’s standard setting reliability. The powerful 300 watt mosfet amplifier used in the T/9x remains an icon with huge reserves of current, massive power supplies but small upgrades are found everywhere. New driver mosfets that open up performance and transparency and new methods for securing the toroidal transformers mean better performance and superior strength.
REL’s legendary High Level Input connection and fast filters are a significant part of the REL story. Connecting via the speaker outputs of your amplifier without drawing any power from it may seem like magic, but the real magic lies in the way the sound takes on a natural character. Unique tuning and special limiters means the T/x range sounds fresher, faster and more dynamic than before.
Standby Mode switch is only included on 220V units.
REL have developed a sterling reputation for building the finest sounding, fastest wireless systems available in the industry. They never rely upon digital compression as it results in dull, lifeless sound. Instead, they have perfected an (optional) Arrow™ wireless system so fast and dynamic they’re comfortable encouraging the use of wireless on one channel of a pair of RELs while the other channel may be connected conventionally with cable.
