    It looks ideal for bedroom use.

    Chris,

    You may not be aware but I posted a few comments about MJAcoustics and their Pro 50 a few months back. At the time I had bought one and it had not been reviewed. Since that time they have won some amazing results in Gramophone - getting the editors choice, What HiFi - with two 5 star awards, Essential Home Cinema 5 star - winner group test which saw the REL Q150 gain only a 3 star rating, HiFi World - a review editorial which beggers belief. There have been more reviews and i would suggest that you take a look at their website where all the current reviews are posted.

    The MJA Pro 50 is small monster which will be hard to beet. The new Quake appears to be a clone in size but still more pricey. Whats the point?

    However MJA have released a new product which is on their site called th Reference I which seems to be an amazing piece of kit. After ringing their sale team i have been told it is the first of a line of reference subs to be released. With Microprocessor control and accuracy of the filter crossover, ballanced in and outs etc.

    Take a look at the site mjacoustics.com to see what i mean.

    If your are looking for a small sub which acts like a wolf in sheeps clothing then the MJA Pro 50 is your answer. i have two now and love them to bits. I got 2 Pro 50's for the price of 1 REL Q150. Now that a bargain.

    If anyone from MJA is reading this then please donnations would be gladly accepted. Joking aside its nice to see a company with real values produce products that do not compromise quality and at a price that justifies real term "value for money".

    Take care Joe Abbeywood

    The MJA Pro 1650 - that looks impressive. It seems to have similar hardware as the Rels?

    But for less:eek:

    Anyone know how often Rel update their ranges?

    The Q150 replaced the Q100 but im not sure how long had the Q100 had been out?. Is the Q150 likely to be replaced with a newer model anytime soon?

    Anyone know?

    The MJ Acoustics subs certainly look nice. However, I see that in talking about their new Reference 1 they claim it results from "over 15 years of development...". I've no doubt that it does but could all that development work have been done by a certain Welsh company ?

    Hi,

    Anyone know the history surrounding the Quake - I believe I'm right in saying this is not the first beast to go by that name. Why do all the other Q models go by a number?

    Regards,

    Chris
