German Physiks Unlimited Ultimate



German Physiks Unlimited Ultimate £12,400

Resonances in a loudspeaker cabinet can seriously degrade the sound quality by obscuring detail. To prevent this, the Unlimited  cabinets are constructed from heavy panels of MDF, with internal re-enforcements fitted at critical points.

As a further anti-resonance measure, a special damping material called Hawaphon® is applied to the inside of each panel. This adds mass to the panel to reduce the resonant frequency and its special internal structure very effectively converts vibration energy into heat

Because the DDD driver is omnidirectional, the  German Physiks Unlimited Ultimate excellent stereo images can be enjoyed from a wide range of positions in the listening room, rather than from just the small “sweet spot” that many conventional designs produce. This allows several people to enjoy the Unlimited at the same time. It also means that long listening sessions are not fatiguing, as you do not have to worry about staying in a small “sweet spot” in order to enjoy the best sound.

Additional advantages of the DDD driver’s omnidirectional radiation pattern are that it makes the Unlimited less fussy about its position in the room than many conventional designs and it allows the Unlimited  to provide an even tonal balance in almost all positions in the room.  Loudspeakers that use conventional drivers will only produce the correct tonal balance in a narrow range of positions in the room, due to their tendency to beam at high frequencies.

More information on the DDD driver, its development and advantages may be found on the Technology page of this web site.

Low Resonance Cabinets

Resonances in a loudspeaker cabinet can seriously degrade the sound quality by obscuring detail. To prevent this, the Unlimited  cabinets are constructed from heavy panels of MDF, with internal re-enforcements fitted at critical points.

As a further anti-resonance measure, a special damping material called Hawaphon® is applied to the inside of each panel. This adds mass to the panel to reduce the resonant frequency and its special internal structure very effectively converts vibration energy into heat. Hawaphon achieves a broadband attenuation of structure-borne sound of more than 50dB: a remarkably high figure. In addition, the special acoustic vinyl material used on the outside of the cabinet provides a further reduction in vibration of up to 17dB.
