Are you sure the REL quake is available in the US? Last time I checked the entry sub in the US was the strata.

The Quake/Q108E certainly is compact for those with space issues (9.96 x 11.57 x 10.7) inches. Probably why it is popular in Europe. $750 is probably a good price point for REL since the Stratus MSRP is $1300 (black) to $1500 (wood); and the Q150E is $1095. In a few years when used ones are available we'll get a better idea of demand.
Some larger dealers discount 15% to 20% on REL's so a new one may be available for $600 to $640.
Phasecorrect..I am in the UK but unfortunately have not listened to any of them but once I was also interested in the Pro50..it got great reviews here in Europe and UK..I did not choose it because it is a small sub for my mains..Pro50 goes below 20hz..so that is a feat for an 8" sub..If I were you I would choose the Pro50..the price of Pro50 must be around 500$ for USA I think..
Searched for a good base unit for months.
Finally ended up with REL Strata or Storm as the ultimate
until I heard MJ Acoustics Pro 100 and Reference 1.
WOW! Cheaper than REL and in my opinion superior.
Bought the Reference 1 in London and sounds phenomenal
with my Yamaha NS 1000 monitors and Boston VRM Centre
and Surround Speakers.
I have searched everywhere on the internet for a US dealer or distributor of MJ Acoustics. I wonder why there still isn't a distributor here. I was interested in the Pro50 model for I have a small room. But then I noticed that it's only 50W compared to the new Rel Quake's 100W, so i set my sights on the Quake. Then I learned that MJ Acoustics just came out with the Reference Pro 100 w/ 100W and a much improved version of the Pro50 which only costs a little more and goes deeper to 13Hz. Now I'm looking for a UK shop that will ship to the States. Anyone?
