Description

A tradition has emerged at REL that once in a great while, we take an existing model that we consider to have special merit and imbue it with special characteristics. They are always rare, may even become collectible someday and offer a unique way to enjoy an already special model more deeply. But don’t wait, there are exceedingly few of these available and they will be gone very quickly.


The Most T/i Available

THE SERIES FLAGSHIP
T/9i RED is what happens when we ask, “Wouldn’t it be lovely to produce a version of our best-selling T/9i in true Italian red?” (we stopped short of adding yellow graphics with a prancing horse as a badge). To get the hue exactly right required 14 months—we were bent on getting the exact shade of late ‘80’s cars from a certain factory in Italy exactly right because, after all, that is the color we think of when we think of exotic Italian GTs and sports cars. And then we couldn’t stop there because the look had to carry all the way through the design. Which explains the lovely triple-chromed top badge which then required a true carbon fibre bezel surrounding the badge to deliver the necessary transition from chrome to oh-my-goodness deep red. And we do sweat the minor details which explain the use of solid carbon fibre sleeves to anchor the bottom of the design.

Elsewhere, things remain the same which is to say it remains the standard setter in this category of affordable powerhouses that can do it all; Power home theatre? Check. Brilliant blend with main speakers for 2-channel performance? Check. The best affordable all ‘rounder just became rarer and more beautiful.

Reimagined, Then Reengineered

A COMPLETELY REDESIGNED FLAGSHIP
T/9i delivers more than just raw output. We started with our driver upgrades and built outward. The lovely cabinets grew by 4 lbs. (1.8 kg) over its predecessor due to thicker cabinet walls and improved bracing. Why? Because the additional speed and impact of the new drivers requires greater control or the benefits can be lost before they get to the listener.

Outsized Performance

INNOVATIVE ALLOY/FIBRE BASS ENGINES
The new composite alloy/fibre engine in T/9i blends precisely the correct dimension of stiffening alloy with a fibre material chosen for its sonic neutrality and light weight. The combination is brilliant; exceeding the performance of competitors’ drivers that are many times more expensive. The forward-firing 10” active couples with a 10” down-firing passive, again with carefully chosen balances of alloy to fibre and the result is seamless, effortlessly deep bass that blends perfectly with the main speakers.

Great Subs, Great Amps

THE BRAINS BEHIND THE BRAWN
Our acclaimed input filters and robust amplifiers result in some of the best sounding, most reliable designs ever produced. High current power supplies, huge toroidal transformers, and what many critics call the best filters in the world produce the famous REL Effect—where in not simply the bass region but ALL music and movie sound is uplifted and improved. Standby Mode switch not included on 110V units.

Monoblock Amplifiers and High Level Connection:

REL do not recommend use of a single REL subwoofer with ANY brand of monoblock amplifier as it is possible to observe slight channel-to-channel dc offset that can result in mild oscillation. For any monoblock, REL recommend use of stereo pairs of the appropriate model of subwoofer.
