"Striking, grandiose sound..."
AV-Magazin 29.11.2016
"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.”

The new subwoofer

The S 6000 SW is Teufel’s premium universal subwoofer model designed and developed in Berlin. The active sub is powered by an extremely low-noise amplifier with plenty of setting options including volume, phase switch, auto level switch and high pass filter. A recessed amplifier makes it possible to place the subwoofer directly against the wall.
The S 6000 SW employs a 300 mm woofer to push the low end all the way down to 28 Hz. Teufel’s proprietary Air Stream Bass technology uses a specially constructed air vent to minimized wind noise at high levels.

    "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."

    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."
    AUDIO 02/2017
    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.”

    "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.”

    "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.”

I've become aware of Teufels through friends. Wanted a 2.1 complete system that I can connect via hdmi to watch movie u listen to music. Delivered quickly, everything is very safe and packaged to fit. The workmanship is very good. Connecting also went quickly via arc, Bluetooth connects also without problems. Soundwise to my old small 2.1 like day and night, the highs and middle very clear and balanced. Clearly the sub has enough pressure u sure nothing vibrates. I am very satisfied

The plant fulfils its purpose
The subwoofer is just the right thing for movies and the pitches are quite well hit. The fact that the system only works up to 20000 Hz is only noticeable in direct comparison with high-end hardware. In my opinion this is a great starter set for floorstanding loudspeakers with lots of rumms. One point that bothers me a little is that the integrated amplifier is quite loud. Warranty fetishists should pay a little attention, as the "up to 12 years warranty" only applies to certain parts of the passive loudspeaker. I give nevertheless 5 stars, since Teufel with its 8 weeks return right and free return offers an unusual customer-friendly service. Lars Döring

Ingenious plant
The very well packed delivery was mega fast there, Monday evening ordered and on Wednesday already arrived. The system is very easy to set up and commission. The workmanship is top and the sound even more so. This is my first Teufel gets but certainly not the last, look me now already around for a facility in the bedroom. The only criticism in the description of this bundle is that it doesn't include a subwoofer cable, so I ordered a 5 meter cable, which I don't need.
Super Teufelish
Everything super, was fast there and use ready as described, gladly again and a further recommendation is 200 per cent in it, continues to do so you are my Teufels :) Teufelish greeting Marc Pollig.

BASSOKALYPSE - ohh yes, but only if I want that too
The manufacturer advertises with the word "BASSOKALYPSE". Yes, the set actually keeps to that! My living room is not very big with about 25 square meters. But the speakers are perfectly adjustable: * If you want to listen to some music at a late hour without disturbing the neighbours, sounds great, incl. bass * If you look at a blockbuster, it can crack without booming I find the possibilities to move the bass from the speakers to the sub ingenious, it arrives at the ear exactly what I want to have. Sure, with the size of my living room the two speakers alone would be enough to produce enough rumms, but with the Sub I can really feel the rumms. Otherwise, I'm more convinced about the details that are presented in film and music - no matter at what volume. Only the remote control clouds the whole thing a little: Sometimes the orders don't reach the speakers. It's just Bluetooth, it only works a maximum of 10 meters and if there are obstacles (other people) in between, a little less. But it's a high level whining. Then you shoot a little more often.
