The top seller from Berlin
For years, the ULTIMA series has been a byword for excellent price to performance ratio. You won't get this much sound for this little money anywhere else. Featuring superior audio technologies, the ULTIMA series delivers perfectly balanced playback to increase your enjoyment of all genres of music, as well as gaming and of course films. We hear just that all the time from enthusiastic industry journalists and customers. The new ULTIMAs can be easily recognized by the label over the tweeter.
At Teufel, all our bundles are designed for finely-tuned high-fidelity playback. As a result, you can experience immersive soundscapes for movies, enjoy rousing concert atmosphere on Blu-ray, and hear exactly where those footsteps are coming from in video games.
Developed in Berlin
Product development for the ULTIMA series, like all our other speaker series, is completed start to finish here in our Berlin labs and anechoic chambers. After years of cross-team refinement and optimization including a healthy dose of customer feedback, the ULTIMA 40 is a true marvel of engineering.
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.
Mitigates phase interference near the tweeter by directing waves outward toward the listener, enhancing response at high-frequency bandpasses.
Exactingly guides each individual sound, keeping all instruments and voices crisp, clear, and distinct.
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.
Rear speaker optional wireless
With the optionally available REARSTATION the rear speakers can be controlled without continuous cabling to the AV receiver.
The REARSTATION transmitter module sends sound signals for the left and right surround channels wirelessly from the AV receiver to the two REARSTATION receiver modules, which can be placed near the rear speakers. There is no need for cabling through the entire room.
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.

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.
Pristinely finished. Made from sturdy MDF with internal struts, Teufel speakers feature long-lasting timeless design.
Design and materials
We took no shortcuts when it came to optimizing our ULTIMA speakers. Here are the highlights of our new range:
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.
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.
The extremely robust yet flexible outer jacket protects the high-quality cable inside. The positive pole is indicated.
The loudspeaker cables can be connected directly to the amplifier/loudspeaker or by means of a banana plug.
One loudspeaker cable plus cable ties with Velcro is delivered in separate packaging.

"...this is a pair of sublime tower speakers, up there with [many] popular consumer audio brands."Outer Audio 05/2019"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."Read more at: https://www.outeraudio.com/teufel-ultima-40-review/More...
