Mic and the mechanic: IMPULS 2

Compared to its smaller brothers, we have improved the CD digital data read out significantly resulting in less data interpolation. Together with further advancements on the output filter stage, the musical talents of the IMPULS 2 are expanded to an extent that really invites you to step up to the stage.

"The IMPULS 2 brings the music to life. You feel comfortable after the first bar. Nothing disturbs, you are not reminded of hi-fi equipment...
The emotions play the most important key role and stand in the foreground."
Hörerlebnis/Marco Kolks

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.

The light reflected sideways from the edge of a CD creates phantom information that interferes with the coherence length of the scanning laser light. This is reflected back on the CD and adversely affects the data-read process.
The Disc-Floating mechanism of the IMPULS 2 improves the optical noise suppression by emitting complementary blue light on the disc. The result is a reduction of read - errors which means, that there is less need for interpolation operations of the DSP circuits.

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 is one of 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.
PHONOSOPHIE System remote. The system remote control is included and gives you full control over your IMPULS and third party components too, all from a comfortable distance of up to 16 meters due to double LEDs.
