    Tweeter with phase plug and waveguide

    Two features that are nearly unheard of at this price point are the tweeter's built in phase plug and waveguide, providing for extreme precision in the high-frequency range.

    Phase plug
    Mitigates phase interference near the tweeter by directing waves outward toward the listener, enhancing response at high-frequency bandpasses.
    Teufel Stereo-Lautsprecher Ultima 40 Mk3
    Waveguide
    Exactingly guides each individual sound, keeping all instruments and voices crisp, clear, and distinct.

    Kevlar mid-range driver with phase plug

    The mid-range driver is not only particularly large, but also contains a phase plug. That results in both crisp, understandable speech and an especially warm, natural mid-range. It also means the optimum sound can be heard across a larger area.

    Impaq 8000 Blu-ray Receiver

    The Impaq Blu-ray A/V receiver is a Blu-ray/DVD/CD player, AV receiver, network player, radio and much more. You won’t require any other device to enjoy 5.1 surround with the best possible sound and greatest number of playback options. A single slimline receiver measuring just 8 cm tall is all you need.

    The Impaq 8000 delivers balanced sound and stable levels across the entire frequency spectrum. A highly efficient class D amplifier from Texas Instruments gives the little system plenty of power.

    The system's ability to process and decode video content is also state-of-the-art. Not only does the Impaq 8000 support this standard, an integrated upscaling function can convert HD content into 4K.

    PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, television, SAT or cable receiver, Apple TV, smartphones and tablets can be easily integrated itno the system via one of the Impaq's HDMI, digital or anlog inputs.

    7.1 option: An RCA pre-out connection on the back makes it possible to expand 5.1 into 7.1 setups. Note that active speakers must be connected to the pre-out. With a Rear Station 4, even passive speakers can be integrated and wirelessly controlled.

    Bluetooth, radio, streaming

    The Impaq not only streams via Bluetooth, it offers the highest quality sound via aptX codec. This makes it easy to play back audio from apps like Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube and enjoy CD-like sound quality. Thanks to NFC, the pairing procedure is also easy: Just hold your smartphone up to the Impaq and the two devices will automatically forge a Bluetooth connection.

    In addition to Bluetooth streaming, the impaq can access data on your home network and play back all the movies and music you have stored there. Pictures can also be acceessed and displayed on your television. Connect your smartphone to your home network and transfer all the music, videos and pictures you have stored there.

    An oldie but a goodie, the Impaq 8000, of course, also includes FM radio. Save up to 30 stations thanks to the Impaq's RDS function.

    Rear speaker optional wireless

    With the optionally available REARSTATION the rear speakers can be controlled without continuous cabling to the AV receiver.

    Front

    RearStation 4 Main Slave Back

    Back

    The two REARSTATION receiver modules transmit the sound signals from the transmitter divided into the left or right surround channel to the designated rear speakers. There is no need for cabling through the entire room.

      High-end tech

      The smaller Ultima also produces big sound, because it is packed to the brim with the latest in audio technology.

      All around unbeatable

      Whether serving as a standalone bookshelf speaker or rear speaker in a surround set, the ULTIMA 20 does not compromise. It fits on a bookshelf, can be placed on a stand, or mounted on a wall. Both visually and sonically, it's the perfect match for its big sister.

      Finish

      Pristinely finished. Made from sturdy MDF with internal struts, Teufel speakers feature long-lasting timeless design.

        A center with bite

        Two large mid-range drivers in MTM configuration ensure powerful, distortion-free audio and high speech intelligibility for games and movies - even at low volumes. Sonically, the center is perfectly matched to the ULTIMA 40 or 20. It can be easily mounted on the wall, but thanks to its slim design, also looks great on a stand or on a shelf.

        The rigid, gently curved MDF housing contains more than 30 years of Teufel experience and modern speaker technology.

          3-way system

          The cornerstone of its excellent sound lies in the design of our 3-way system, which resulted from years of development. The drivers work together in harmony across all frequency ranges, resulting in extremely smooth and clear sound production.

            A Teufel cable with a 1.0 mm² cross sectional area is recommend for multimedia systems and less expensive home cinema systems where only short distances need to be covered.

            CCA Wires

            The wires within this cable are made from copper-clad aluminium. CCA cables have the same electric conductivity as full copper wires but weigh less, making them easier to work with.

            More wire strands per cable

            The loudspeaker cable contains an especially high number of strands for extra flexibility and conductivity.

            Robust jacket

            The extremely robust yet flexible outer jacket protects the high-quality cable inside. The positive pole is indicated.

            Connection

            The loudspeaker cables can be connected directly to the amplifier/loudspeaker or by means of a banana plug.

            Delivery

            One loudspeaker cable plus cable ties with Velcro is delivered in separate packaging.

            "If you’re looking for something different, then the Teufel Ultima 40 is certainly one to check out. I put these on par with the Klipsch R-24F. However, I would say the R-24F has a more controlled bass response than the Ultima 40. If you’re looking for a stereo pair, then you should definitely consider the Ultima 40 Active over the passive model. You’ll get better value for money by not having to spend extra on an amplifier and cabling as well as a more efficient speaker with factory fitted and tested amplification. If you’re looking for a full surround sound system, you have the option of the 5.1 Ultima Series which is an absolute gem of a system and also very affordable for the size and quality you get."
