    What is the BEST subwoofer from REL that has the remote control ability and also 2 inputs (one for music, one for home cinema)?

    Is the STADIUM and/or STENTOR gonna be upgraded to include remote ability soon?

    Thanks,

    Martin.

    I collected a Srorm 5 on Saturday morning to try out at home. So far I'm very impressed with it, but am now wondering how the new Stadium will compare. Can anyone please tell me... ?

    Thanks

    The reason I ask, is that my retail supplier doesn't have on in and won't be getting one in before the the middle of Jan '05.

    As far as i know there is no "new" Stadium. The Stadium 3 has been out a while and I'd heard that REL felt that the new Storm 5 outperformed it at a saving of £500. I haven't however actually compared them. REL have no plans as yet to upgrade the Stadium 3.

    Thanks for that. I was researching last night and sort of found out the same thing re the Stadium. It's looking like the Storm 5, as the remote is so incredibly handy for setting up.

    Regarding set-up, I had 3 setting stored:

    1. For music - 2. DVD's - 3. For Sky & ordinary TV (then could tweak each slightly as required)

    For music I had the LFE off and just used the Hi in, and kept the frequency down to about 32hz, for DVD's turn the LFE on frquency was up to about 38hz and carefully select Lo vol and Hi vol; it's very easy to get it quickly set up once you've had a play with it.
