Introducing LongBow™, the easy-to-use, zero compression, ultra-high quality wireless system that frees your system from placement limitations imposed by conventional cables.
Compatible with No. 25, 212/SE, S/5 SHO, S/3 SHO, Carbon Limited, and included with Habitat1.
Not compatible with G1 Mark II, S/812, S/510, Serie T/i or Serie HT.
LongBow™ Wireless Connectivity
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.
Fast, Uncompressed Bass
Our 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.
Give Us Five Seconds
The Simple Toggle
Perfect Pair™. Most people find fiddling with computer pairing frustrating, so our designers tasked our 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™ transmitter provides true REL Theater Reference™ connectivity, permitting both HIGH-LEVEL
and LFE channels to be wirelessly fed to Serie S. This occurs with virtually zero delay and a complete absence
Care and Polishing
The cabinets are best maintained by using a light automotive spray-on wax and a micro fiber cloth. (We use
a spray-on made by a company called Griot’s Garage™. While this may not be available in all markets, you
can use a similar product). Take care not to spray the aluminum badge. Do not place objects, such as drinks
on top of your REL Longbow transmitter. Never use a dry cloth on this finish.
