Hello all, I recently made the purchase of getting the Rel HT 1508 sub woofer. And I can fully attest to OP's review. The Rel kicks some serious a**. I upgraded from SVS PB 2000 PRO series sub. The SVS was great for what it was. It performed well for moves and music. However, it lacked the punch and/or slam that the Rel produces. The bass quality on the Rel compared to the SVS is just better in nearly every regard. The bass is super clean, controlled and fast. Moreover, there is plenty of headroom to tweak the sub to suit your needs (music & movies) and the sub pairs perfectly with my current speakers (Kef 4x Q950, 1x Q650, 2x Q350, 2x Q50a).

If you have a chance to demo these out, please do and hear for yourself. The SVS 2000 Pro is no slouch by any means but this Rel 1508 is better in nearly every aspect. I cant wait to add a 2nd one.

Prices in India on this sub seem to have increased by more than 50% since last year. Very unfortunate!
Very true Nagaraj, in approx 2 to 3 months after buying it has gone up. Weird part is that it has gone up in India only.
At that price here, there may be better options available.
