I've been getting numerous inquiries about the Revel Ultima Rhythm2 sub after my post about it being discontinued last month. Yes, they are on closeout but there are still half a dozen or so left in...

Exactly.

There seems to be some misunderstanding of what exactly Synthesis is, and how it relates to JBL Pro. Synthesis systems are what about 80% of films and about half of all music is mixed and...
