    The arenas are sold for a couple of months now and the M1s appeared in stores in the beginning of this month. However, I found no review on either of them nor someone who used them for quite a while.
    Did you find any reviews on these sets? Are you using any of them?

    I heard them at the Bristol Show (Arenas) and thought they were pretty impressive. Then again, they had chosen the demo music... Others were not quite so impressed. Only one way to know for sure...

    The ones at Bristol may have been dummies, with the REAL speakers behind curtains (hey, it happened with subs)... :)

    Sorry- to clarify, the Arena is not in full production yet- I imagine the ones at shows will be PP versions. We have had to do a similar thing with our Performance Speakers which only started production comparitively recently but were shown for the first time last May.

    I think they are referring to REL. If you read the Bristol thread by Ian there is a post about a sub manufactruer having one sub on display, but actually using a second sub behind a curtain as they couldn't get just the one sounding right!!
