You've got the powerful REL subwoofer, not allow yourself the freedom to position it wherever you want.
The LongBow provides high-quality, uncompressed, and fast signal to your compatible REL subwoofer. No more unsightly cables between your system and subwoofer.
There is wireless and there is REL wireless. Introducing LongBow, the easy-to-use, zero compression, ultra-high quality wireless system that frees your system from placement limitations imposed by conventional cables.
Designed for the Serie S subwoofers (S2/S3/S5, 212SE), the LongBow is also compatible with the No. 25, and Habitat1 models.
- Designed for the Serie S subwoofers (S3 SHO, S5 SHO, 212SE)
- Allows for freedom of subwoofer placement
- Zero compression and maximum dynamics
- Big, rich sounding bass, free of compromise
- Incredibly low latency for responsive, lag-free bass
- Approximately 45-foot operating range
- Easy toggle setup takes 10 seconds
LongBow permits very fast, uncompressed bass to be sent wirelessly within the same room approximately, 45 feet (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 un-involving 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.
REL's engineers didn’t stop at creating the industry’s best-sounding wireless delivery system. The team developed LongBow with both high level AND .1 channel simultaneous delivery so that REL Theatre Reference performance can be maintained even when using our 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.
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.
The LongBow is designed and optimised to provide Serie S subwoofers with a high quality, zero compression wireless solution, so your subwoofer can be placed where it works best without the cost of long cables and visual clutter.
Serie S combines a higher performance level than REL has ever set out to deliver within their mid-level range, able to elevate higher-end systems in medium to large rooms. When REL began designing Serie S, they set out, quite literally, to revolutionize subwoofers.
The correct placement of your REL can drastically enhance its performance and transform your listening experience. So, REL Acoustics created a guide to help you get the most out of your subwoofer and showcase how multiple subwoofers can be used to provide breathtaking 2-channel scores and truly theater-quality 3D sound.
