    Puck Wireless Remote Control

    The puck remote control enables the intuitive control of the Concept E Digital and Boomster over even large distances (over 10 meters). The ergonomic puck was developed to fit easy into the palm of the hand, but can also be placed on a table top. A rubberized surface keeps the device from sliding when in use.

    "The Berlin transducers really showed what they’re capable of and delivered a brilliant performance..."
    Area DVD 21.12.2016
    AREA DVD - Ausgezeichnet
    "With the Blu-ray disc, “Avengers“, we skipped to the parts “The Invasion Begins“ and “The War“. The Ultima 40 Active showed us that it definitely has enough power and dynamics it has at its disposal to shine in the area of film sound. The moment when the reactor opens the black hole is reproduced with solid force and good 3-dimensionality. The following dialog between Stark and Loki in the cavernous room in Stark’s Skyscraper was presented with very well-balanced vocals. The punches and Iron Man’s jump through the closed window proved that both speakers are possessed of considerable qualities.”

    "We switched to music and tested the Ultima 40 Active with “What is Love 2016“ by Lost Frequencies. The master and slave speakers were really impressive: The bass showed itself to be truly hard with good impulse fidelity. The Berlin transducers really showed what they’re capable of and delivered a brilliant performance unlike any other part of our test. Above this, the singer’s vocals were well separated from the drivers. The Ultima speakers offer an all-around first-class performance here.”

    Testbericht - hifitest - Ultima 40 Aktiv
    Conclusion: "With the new Teufel Ultima 40 Aktiv, you don't need an additional amplifier or even AV receiver - the integrated amplifier module has everything covered. Practical and uncomplicated, the Ultima 40 Aktiv simply combines classic Hi-Fi playback with Filmsound 2.0. Not only is the extremely affordable price surprising, the Ultima 40 Active also offers numerous possibilities for connection to tablet, smartphone and even the TV set, thanks to HDMI input. With its active version of the tried and tested Ultima 40, Teufel is back in the game." Top class: 4/5 stars

    "The drivers reproduce Bobby Kimbal’s "Too Far Behind“ with such a punchy and beautiful stereo panorama that we found ourselves moving to the beat."

    Testbericht - Audio - Ultima 40 Aktiv Empfehlung
    "The drivers reproduce Bobby Kimbal’s "Too Far Behind“ with such a punchy and beautiful stereo panorama that we found ourselves moving to the beat. But the system is capable of more. We wanted a harder sound and put on some classic rock. The speaker really flexed its muscles with “Visibility Zero” from the current Kansas album. The good ol’ Hammond organ skilfully asserted itself in the intro and the vocal harmonies in the chorus were goose bump inducing. Can the system handle more? How about some Panzerballett! Turned up all the way, the jazz metal group ploughed through the room with a good amount of power and depth. The powerful class D amplifier showed itself to be fearless and really went to work. Great stuff.”

    Conclusion:


    "…Teufel really did good work with the amplifier, which gives the tower speakers a good amount of power. The real highlight, however, is the connection options. These open new possibilities, especially in regard to home cinema use.”

    "Striking, grandiose sound..."
    AV-Magazin 29.11.2016
    Testbericht - AV-Magazin - Ultima 40 Aktiv
    "With power and character, clear and full of volume without a trace of pushiness in either the vocals or the instruments. With movies [...], every fine nuance can be discerned as easily as powerful surges of sound.”

    "The viewer is positively drawn into the movies[...].  Even James Bond’s Spectre shines on all sides with the Ultima 40 Active. The voices that are so full of character [...] are reproduced by the speakers just as well as screeching tyres or the threatening sound of helicopter blades. One is right in the action instead of just a bystander!”

    "The Ultima 40 Active is absolutely perfect gear for every party. Thanks to my 16-year-old son, I know that both speakers [...] can animate dancers to the finest techno shuffle – via Bluetooth or CD player. On a side note, I was wonderfully entertained by the Three Tenors singling “La Donna e Mobile” while making pizza, even though I was not positioned in the ideal stereo triangle. Striking, grandiose sound for (nearly) all occasions.”

    "In the listening test, the Ultima 40 Aktiv [...] speakers impressed with a remarkably good performance. Their astonishingly airy, far-reaching and radiant high-frequency reproduction perfectly harmonises with the neutral, but still powerful, mid-tones. The Teufel speakers are precise and gripping in terms of bass levels and you don't need a separate subwoofer even when watching action films."

    "The Ultima 40 from Teufel rightly deserves an excellent reputation, which will now be even further enhanced. As if an outstanding price / performance ratio, sound that is far above average and great looks weren’t enough, Teufel has equipped the active tower speakers with an HDMI input as well, thereby rendering them the perfect tools for use in hi-fi and home cinema. In addition, the practical plug-&-play characteristic is a good reason for hi-fi newbies who want a full system to buy the speakers. With the Ultima 40 Aktiv, nothing stands in their way, thanks to the added incentive of an extremely attractive price.”

Just Top!
The Ultima 40 have found a new home in our new apartment with approx. 60 sqm living/dining room. As a music lover who also owns a mastering studio, I can say that these loudspeakers really sound very balanced and powerful. A very nice draught at which the subwoofer is unnecessary. We are very satisfied! Super Teufels! Greetings from Ludwigshafen Sinan Choucair

Everything fits in the Ultima 40 active speakers
It started with a recommendation, the good presentation on the pages and the order with a quick delivery. The speakers have a simple handling, top sound, quality and optics. Used for TV, streaming from mobile phones and party speakers. Unfortunately Bluetooth only reaches 3 to 5 meters. I don't know why sellers advise against active speakers. I can only recommend them.

Top in every respect
Got Teufel's plant now roughly a month. The plant convinced me in every respect. Processing is top and the sound has knocked me over, because the performance has surpassed my old system and that without subwoofer. But I will buy the subwoofer later. Dear Teufel Team continues to do so I am completely satisfied. Yours sincerely.

Super Sound Top workmanship
For me as a Teufel beginner really an excellent sound. Also the processing is top in my opinion. The only thing that could have been better solved in my eyes is the accessibility of the control elements on the master loudspeaker. These are located on the back, which makes it a little more difficult to adjust the speakers. But my overall conclusion: Teufels again any time!!!
Ultima Super!
Teufelo to the Teufelrunde :-) Music is addictive with the right equipment. Thank you very much for...everything TOP!! LG Werner-Jan

Ultima 40 Active
After the Teufel One M, I have now bought the Ultima 40 Active. The goods were delivered to me in two days after the order was placed. Very good packaging and excellent workmanship of the individual speakers. I am totally thrilled, an outstanding sound image. Everything is perfectly coordinated and leaves nothing to be desired. Pin sharp mid and high tones as well as an outstanding rich bass. In my opinion, an additional subwoofer is not required here. The PUK remote control fits very well in the hand and responds immediately. Even via the Alexa Echo the loudspeakers are very well controllable. I'd decide to go back to the speakers anytime. Thank you Teufel!

price/ performance Top Sound Very good workmanship for the loudspeakers When you're listening to music, the speakers bring out the centre speakers and tweeters beautifully clear and clean. When it comes to movies, it's almost like being in a movie theater you could believe you've got a home theater system. Conclusion very good work on you continues like this :)
