REL Classic 99

A Mid-Century Modern Lifestyle Statement

The Classic 99 elevates our Classic Line to new heights, combining richness, boldness, and power with exceptional nuance, air, and resolution. Designed for advanced systems and larger rooms, it offers superior performance while retaining the easy-going, room-filling nature of all Classic offerings. The high-grade genuine dark walnut veneer enhances various decors, and its design is a nod to Mid-Century Modern aesthetics. Ideal for those who loved the original but seek even higher performance and the ability to fill grander spaces with deep bass, the Classic 99 is perfect for creating a relaxing, immersive audio experience.

Designed to Be Superior

Inspired by its predecessor, the model 98, the Classic 99 exudes comfort and quality. With 32 mm thick cabinet walls, rich walnut veneer, and hand-fitted details, it features simple aluminum badges and radiused feet that give it a floating appearance. The down-firing 12” driver is powerful yet discreet, while the rear amplifier panel boasts period-correct detailing with controls finished in white gold. Every component, from the phase switch to the exterior finish, exudes quality. This attention to detail ensures the Classic 99 not only looks and feels premium but also delivers exceptional performance.

Driven to be Louder and Quieter

REL’s approach always starts with the driver, and the Classic 99 is no exception. It features a bespoke 12” long-stroke driver with a lightweight, stiff, hot-pressed paper cone and a hand-thrown paper center cap. This design ensures excellent self-damping and contributes to the quietness that allows for the most startling dynamics. The Classic 99 can play incredibly loud, but it’s the black background from which the dynamics emerge that provides the dramatic impact desired by composers and directors.

More than Ample Amplification

The Classic 99 is bold and full of character, reminiscent of the Stentor II but at a third of the price. It boasts a 450-watt Class D amplifier, previously used in thousands of units, combined with an all-analog PerfectFilter™ front end. This setup extends useful output into the low 20 Hz range, delivering a rich, detailed sound. The Classic 99 blends the best of current technology to offer a sound that feels both vintage and superior in reliability and performance.

Less Wiring? How About Wireless Technology Only REL Offers

REL’s wireless offerings seamlessly blend the future with the past. The Airship II, our ultimate wireless design at 5.8 GHz, uses discrete components to provide uncompressed wireless sound, eliminating cable clutter. For those on a budget, the HT-Air MKII Wireless offers the same master chip for Low Level or .1/LFE, ensuring reliable signal delivery over 35 feet. This affordable system maintains the same high standards that have made REL famous for the past 15 years.
