I donít know anything about Reel Acoustics, but I know a lot about Rel Acoustics. Rel Acoustics is a British high-end company with absolutely outstanding sub-bass products. Unfortunately, they are very expensive.

I've only heard of "REL ACOUSTICS" and I don't think they make anything called an "Orpheum" so it may be a different manufacturer all together..... I know REL's are supposedly good, but I have never heard them before.


EDIT:

Big Daddy beat me to it.... I looked up "REEL ACOUSTICS" and they are in fact NOT Rel, so it's a different manufacturer

I'm sure there are tons of excellent small speaker manufacturers, but I would be cautious of dealing with any of them if I couldn't hear them myself or find reviews that I really trusted. The white van racket has moved to the internet.

Their website doesn't look like they have a lot of working capital either..... I'd be cautious.

Yeah, I'm no expert but this one stinks until you get someone that's heard of them before. Their speaker stats are hidden away in the manuals and there isn't that much detail in them. They're 6ohm speakers with an 87-89 sensitivity rating. Again, I've not messed with 6ohm, but isn't this going to be a pretty power-hungry speaker?

Anyway, I would go with something more familiar or that someone else on the forum has.

Another CANADIAN speaker manufacturer! That makes how many now?

I went to the site and the reviews posted came from some fairly reputable magazines. However, that doesn't mean I buy into them.

I have never heard of this company, so I'd be leery at best. Especially when you consider there are so many great Canadian speaker manufacturers out there with competitive pricing. I would look into those first.

The other thing I would suggest is this. Write to UHF Magazine (link below) and ask them if they are at all familiar with this company. UHF is one of the most respected Canadian Audio publications and, in my opinion, very unbiased.
