Have you ever wondered what goes in to the design of the fantastic REL drivers.

Here is an article on the REL website....


Not All Cones Are Created Equal


The great race car designer, Colin Chapman of Lotus was once quoted as saying “To go faster, first add lightness.” Words to live by.

Before we jump into the materials used in REL’s cones, let’s take a step back and ask ourselves why ANY cone material is important and what the point of using high tech materials might be. After all, plenty of materials have been used down through the years, what are smart engineers after?

In a word “speed”, or rather, speed with quietness and stiffness. And why is speed so important to REL? Because without it, we cannot possibly keep up with state of the art loudspeakers. Where other subwoofer manufacturers need only to make bass, and lots of loud, bombastic bass—however slow—is guaranteed to impress neophytes. For the REL customer, the 16 year -old within finds themselves unimpressed over time as their tastes evolve and they begin to realize that the system that once sounded great now sounds unfulfilling. That evolution is normal, REL’s are not for everyone, we all evolve or life is not terribly satisfying.

Let’s begin with Paper, the Ancient Miracle:

Mr. Christiaan Punter of has recently published a review about the Wilson Audio Sabrina loudspeakers! One of the components he used during the review is our PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium Poweramplifier.

He stated: “Everyone knows that tubes have their special way with voices and midrange in general and I have my fair share of experience in this field too, but I really did not expect this. Apparently, this is one of those rare occasions where a magical match is made. After 20 minutes of playing time (the amp was brand new) involvement was raised to the point where it became hard to walk away. In spite of the low absolute power, the sound was incredibly captivating and dynamics were now seemingly more expensive than with either of the big transistor amps as well as the Ref 75. I couldn’t suppress a smile while I cued some vicious Madonna tracks while cranking up the volume. Smooth as smooth can be but boy now the Sabrinas sure rocked!"

Some more good reviews for T+A. This one from the German hifi magazine Stereo.

Download the magazine here - the review for the MP3100 HV is on pages 10, 11 and 12.

This is a very useful review for the small form factor Cala and shows many of the reasons we like it so much. Have a look here. It is from HIFI Choice.

And here is a review on the T+A turntable, the G200R.



September 2017


More great reviews in for the new Triton Reference speaker, this time from the British press HIFI+.


A few excerpts;


Chris was particularly taken with the bass (as is everyone I might add), remarking,


"Notice how the Triton Reference deliver the high-impact notes with enough raw power to shake the walls and windows of your listening room, yet with enough speed and delicacy..."




"Harmonically rich and complete...Up high the Triton Reference also offers excellent and extension, neatly rendering the high-frequency harmonics of treble instruments that seem to soar upwards beyond the range of hearing-floating delicately in the open air."


Chris then discovers something that was a major goal of our design team:


"The T Refs are exceptionally easy to drive, while providing superb resolution of low-level microdynamics along with an abundant amount of dynamic headroom. As a result, the speaker sounds effortlessly expressive and alive, whether playing loudly or softly or somewhere in between. Few speakers I have heard at any price convey such a vivid impression of freedom from dynamic constraints... The speaker lets you choose whatever material and playback level you wish, since in most rooms the speaker will prove to have more dynamic headroom than your ears do-even on loud rock or other power music."

We have received a great review from New Zealand HiFi and Technology website Withchdoctor.


Witchdoctor Review


Dive on in, have a read about what he thinks, the type of music he tired and go and have a demo of one today!

Here are some excerpts.


"To be honest, however, had the PrimaLuna been any other valve amp, I’d never have made the jump. Valves might be old technology, but the clever tech PrimaLuna use bring it right up to date in a way that not many – if any – other valve amp manufacturers have done."


"Last but not least, the remote control. What a beast! Again, it’s so common to find valve amps with no remote, and this is one modern tool that I can’t live without. Not only is it a heavy metal monster, but it works beautifully. This is something that I can’t overstate, as I’ve cohabited with so many poorly designed remotes over the years."


"Most importantly, however, is the fact that once again I’m in love with music. Isn’t that what it’s all about?"

Here is a very interesting video explaining some of what makes the Prima Luna HP amplifiers so special.




May 2017


HiFi plus have put up a good review of the Magnepan .7s.


"The sense of presence was exceptional. The scale of the backing orchestra was powerful yet properly controlled when placed in a supporting role for a single singer. I seized the opportunity to listen to the entire disc with this chain of excellent audio gear."
