    Second hand REL every time.
    If it has been used normally, then it should last years.

    REL is a subwoofer specialist and from reviews I've heard, REL is really good. I would only consider REL, Velodyne or M&K when choosing a sub. I've seen and heard some Yamaha subs and believe me, they are just not up to scratch. Yamaha makes a good receiver and that's about it.

    Just bought a mint Q100E for £95. Excellent stuff. Hurts me to say that it might even be better than the Q150E that I bought new recently for £450!

    Had the YST150 a year or two ago............now have a REL and there is no comparison

    To be fair Yamaha can give you some good results some of the time......for what you pay. In the past they have had award winning subs.........though in the budget range.

    But REL will give you exceptional results all the time........got to be the REL........!!

    So thats.........REL 4.............YAMAHA 0
