The meaning of "live": IMPULS 1

This is the entry-level to the IMPULS series, it incorporates all benefits of our `live´ style of approach. It enables you to join the world of PHONOSOPHIE listeners who are in no way held back from enjoying a full musical spectrum and unlimited dynamics.

"Here power is set free, with savage dynamics and rhythm... makes the things I heard before seem somehow lifeless when compared to the IMPULS 1.“
Hörerlebnis/Robert Schmitz-Niehaus

The ideal power supply should be like a sports car: as powerful and fast as possible. So, to out-pace rivals, we gave the IMPULS a tailor made toroidal transformer. With separate windings, it also feeds the digital and analogue filter sections with extra power. This results in extraordinary timing.

Following our golden rule, to provide the best possible signal flow, the IMPULS CD players are connected to the amp via lockable DIN connectors. Gold RCA terminals (WBT 0244) are available optionally.

All IMPULS range CD players have the same striking front panel design with red illuminated PHONOSOPHIE logo and controls. The high resolution DOT matrix display belongs to the most sophisticated of its kind. Numbers and letters are displayed in deeper
proportion than standard displays can offer. The display and control illumination can be dimmed or switched off entirely.

PHONOSOPHIE uses cases made of carefully treated aluminium (4 mm thick) with finest grade of surface polishing. In contrast to the heavy armour wrapped around common high end audio components, it will not suffer from vibration energy trapped between thick metal sheets.
Instead, this kind of lean construction offers more control when dealing with vibrations as they are eliminated from the cabinet in the shortest time possible. To reduce vibration effects even further, you can use our racksystem, which is complimentary to the cabinets design and supports them perfectly for optimum sound reproduction.

IMPULS CD players can be upgraded whenever it suits you. An upgrade is more economical, making long term investment a sensible and intelligent choice. Our policy helps to conserve natural resources, products are built to last longer than those produced with the usual manufacturing methods and ever quicker changing product cycles.
