Wireless Transmitter For REL Serie S Subwoofers

Zero Compression 24-bit Wireless Transmission

Quick Simple Connection

LongBow is REL's proprietary, 24-bit lossless wireless transmission system which connects quickly and simply to all REL Series S Subwoofers. 

Overview

Serie S takes the concept of audiophile quality components as furniture-grade companion to the sophisticated home to a new level. Because not everyone lives in the same sized house with identical speakers, REL offer three different levels of accomplishment (S2, S3 and S5) that increase in quality, scale and refinement.

Series S combines a higher performance level than REL have ever set out to deliver within their mid-level range, with ease of use and freedom from conventional restraint.

Freedom - LongBow Wireless Connectivity: Introducing REL’s LongBow, the easy-to-use, ultra high quality wireless system that frees your system from placement limitations imposed by conventional cables. LongBow permits very fast, uncompressed bass to be sent wirelessly within the same room approximately 15 metres (somewhat dependent upon room clutter). Conventional wireless systems operate by hugely compressing the sound, shipping the compressed digital bitstream through the air and then expanding it back to its “original” form. The results are a noticeable lag in speed (engineers refer to this delay as latency) and an uninvolving quality which often suffers from thinness. LongBow upgrades the digital pipeline from 16 bit to 24 bit, then ships over un-compressed 48kHz signals. Eliminating the compression/expansion chokepoint and using audiophile grade A/D encoders results in fast (typically about 80 percent faster than traditional Bluetooth or Wi-Fi systems) rich, natural bass.

True Performance - Fast, Uncompressed Bass: REL's engineers didn’t stop at creating the industry’s best-sounding wireless delivery system. Because it is a genuine REL ground-up design, the  engineering team developed LongBow with both high level AND .1 channel simultaneous delivery so that REL Theatre Reference performance can be maintained even when using the wireless delivery system. This approach produces the rich, natural, warm bass REL theater systems are known for, along with the devastating punch of great .1 dynamics. Wirelessly. Shifting back and forth between music and film sound requires NO switching of inputs, altering subwoofer settings or the like.

Give It Five Seconds - The Simple Toggle: Perfect Pair™. Most people find fiddling with computer pairing frustrating, so REL's designers tasked their engineers with reducing pairing to just two simple toggle switches. Total set-up time? About 10 seconds to enjoy high performance bass, freed from the restrictions of cables.
