We offer up a player:
The Impuls 3 sounds like a miracle

This CD player lets you stand on the stage yourself. The emotional involvement with the music is far beyond anything you may have ever experienced from any other player.

The power and dynamics of an external, extremely stable power supply together with an exacting, centralised internal timing are its main characteristics.

"No other player known to us can offer you such a pure live experience...
There is no, I repeat, no CD player, which comes anywhere near the dynamic abilities of the big one from PHONOSOPHIE."
STEREO/Holger Barske


The IMPULS 3 is equipped with a separate PCI power supply. The transformers have been moved out of the CD player casing, away from sensitive electronics. The slim PCI housing holds two toroidal transformers (with up to 1200 VA) and weighs in at 18kg.


The light reflected sideways from the edge of a CD creates phantom information that interferes with the coherence length of the scanning laser light.
The IMPULS 3 uses Disc-Floating, which improves the optical noise suppression by emitting complementary blue light on the disc. The result is a reduction in read-out errors and less need for DSP interpolation operations.


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.


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.
