Serie T/9x: Bigger AND Better

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.

Reimagined, Then Reengineered

A completely redesigned flagship

Many don’t realize the intense linkage between performance and design here at REL. Performance is everything to us and so it drives physical design revisions. Our engineers, recognizing 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.

Outsized Performance

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 our designs. By increasing the cabinet volume, efficiency is improved yielding higher output for no more amplifier power. Less back pressure inside the cabinet means we can tune for a stiffer, better controlled driver suspension. We retained the best aspects of our 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.

Tried and True Amplifiers

The Brains Behind the Brawn

We have retained our signature Class A/B amplifiers used in every generation of Serie T since 2006. Reliability is the key to happy ownership 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.

Wireless That Doesn’t Compress the Sound

Unlimited Possibilities

At REL, we’ve developed a sterling reputation for building the finest sounding, fastest wireless systems available in the industry. We never rely upon digital compression as it results in dull, lifeless sound. Instead, we have perfected an (optional) Arrow™ wireless system so fast and dynamic we’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.

    Stumbled upon Premium Sound a few years ago while I was looking online to purchase some Hi Fi equipment. Their website really caught my attention, it was organized, comprehensive and very easy to navigate. I live some 3800 km away from Britain, but still I decided to give it a shot.
    Enter Alex, a fantastic, knowledgeable and humble person.Even though I was hesitant and kept going back and forth between products, Alex was always patient, courteous and extremely helpful. Never have I felt pushed to buy just anything. Alex even told me what to expect from the customs of my country.
    My packages went through customs smoothly and I received my trophy at home.
    The equipment were packaged very well, extra paddings were used to further protect them during the journey. You can easily tell that the guys at Premium Sound love and enjoy what they’re doing just from the neatness of the packages.
    I still go to Premium Sound for my Hi Fi needs and will continue to do so. A very big thank you to Zani who recently helped me choose a subwoofer which I’m expecting any day now.
    I think if they can do this for an overseas client, they must be quite capable and determined to make Premium Sound a model and successful Hi Fi business.
    If you are a listener and into Hi Fi, I advise you to try Premium Sound, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
