Where's the cheapest place to buy a new black Rel Quake?
I haven't seen it discounted anywhere...
www.hifistore.co.uk have it for £269.95
Which is as cheap as I've been able to find.
Nice one! That's much cheaper than I've seen it elsewhere. Thanks WeirdFish!
Some places are now advertising a "silver" finish for the same price as black (eg. http://www.hifibitz.co.uk/warehouse/details.asp?ProductID=RELQUAKESV ).
Anyone seen one of these? Rel's website doesn't mention it.
Don't forget come 1st July REL will go all KEF and B&W and stop mail order of their products.
Wow is that right?
Where did you hear that? They will see a marked reduction in the amount of business they do, then.
Not sure if it applies to stocks alreay held.
Current stocks are ok untill 1st of July.
It's 30 June, and hifistore have already taken off the REL Quake at £269 from their website. Oh well...
Might go for an MJ Pro 50 instead.
Isn't that date a bit of a coincidence don't these people have to pay taxes that they got around in a loophole.We will have to see if prices start to up from now!
So where's the best place for cheap new REL quake now?
I ordered a Quake from HiFiBitz yesterday the black and silver models are £319 delivered but not for long (so they said)
don't forget you can still get some excellent 2nd hand subs for less money !!!
Yeah, and if any of you choose to buy this sub, make sure he packs it better than he did with the one he sold me.
It was just rattling around inside a cardboard box.
A corner of the unit was damaged due to this and needless to say I wasn't/aren't impressed.
He also says "Also it comes with a earthing cable Idesigned to use the actual 0v earth of the amplifier rather than a speaker -ve"
As far as I'm aware the -Ve speaker terminal is tied to the 0v of the amp already
Sorry for this going off thread but..
SMP - apologies for the way the sub got to you, however I think your description of "rattling around in a cardboard box" is OTT, I feel the sub was packaged correctly when it left me but must have been mistreated / re-packaged by the courier. I would never just drop a sub in a box and send it - not my way of doing things. To ensure this does not happen again the Strata will have to be collected or I would deliver it.
Dan - I lifted that description from the guy that sold me the upgraded High Level cable - I'm not an expert on earthing but it comes with a phono conenction rather than the standard 'black' earth cable - it did make a positive difference to the sound so that's all that mattered to me.
Try local dealers , play them off against each other!
