I just bought a brand new, boxed Strata III in Rosewood and must say that its totally awesome! I paid £475 for it. I bought it to compliment my SUPERB B&W P5 speakers which go all the way down to 28Hz anyway. The flexibilty of the REL Strata allowed me to integrate the sub seamlessly, so it just feels like part of the system now, without hogging the limelight. With music (Marantz CD-17 KI Signature Series) the soundstage seems to have opened up enormously - I just can't explain it! And with movies (Yamaha DSP-E800) the room positively shakes when watching big scenes. Its the best damn money I've spent for quite some time and I am now saving to get another one to totally miff my neighbours (in the next street) If you were thinking of buying one of these - don't hesitate!!
