New Rel Classic 98 Subwoofer

These were just released earlier this month.

Curious if anyone here has purchased them or maybe plans to?

They have been designed / tuned to be not quite as fast as the current modern Rel’s but apparently still articulate.  I’m reading they are intended to be paired with speakers like Harbeth, Dynaudio and even Klipsch.

I’ve been planning to replace my very noisy Omega subs with another pair in the coming months.  
Wondering if these could pair nicely with my Fritz Carbon 7’s.

That said it’s kind of weird to think about buying a sub that is intentionally slower.

I can’t tell if this is a great idea …to match the sub with slightly warmer speakers or just a lifestyle gimmick.

They are priced in between Rels’ T7/x and T9/x at $1400 and use a 10” paper driver , bottom firing … with a 300W class D amp.
