Description

Audiophile Hi Res Audio Dream System by AirPulse™

The AirPulse A300 is a completely integrated audiophile-grade stereo speaker system.  Traditional high-end audio systems are usually based on “separate components”, you pay for a separate amp, preamp, DAC, plus the speakers. AirPulse ingeniously eliminates the chassis costs of the separates by integrating the electronics inside the speaker cabinet, resulting in lower costs to manufacture and a lower retail price. 

The budget for labor and materials is lower without those chassis costs but performance is not sacrificed, today’s parts are the best in history and smaller than ever before, perfect for placement inside the speaker cabinet.  For many of you, the idea of cutting the clutter and the space it takes up seems like a smart move, our living spaces are smaller now to help us live more efficient lives.  The AirPulse A300 outperforms separates- based systems that sell for thousands of dollars more. This is speaker design raised to an art form.

Introducing the 6.5″ Phil Jones Signature Woofer
The 6.5″ woofer in A300 is a hard-anodized aluminum cone with a large under-hung voice-coil, a signature Phil Jones design. It uses a neodymium magnet to provide a high magnetic flux to cover the entire voice-coil. This is rarely done by conventional manufacturers because of the sheer cost. The majority of loudspeakers use an over-hung voice-coil outside the magnetic field. By using a much larger magnetic field in the A300 woofer, we considerably reduce harmonic and inter-modulation distortion, giving the speaker a far more musical and natural sound.

The Proprietary Aluminum Alloy Cone (PAAC) was designed from painstaking analysis of all types of cone geometry and material using a Klippel Laser Doppler interferometer” A precision scientific measuring instrument that analyses cone behavior in a 3D environment. The voice-coil in A300 woofers are unconventionally larger than most 6.5″ loudspeakers. Larger voice coils have less power compression because they run at a cooler operating temperature.

Sonically, this means a more realistic dynamic representation of the music. It is the dynamics in music that gives it emotion and realism. The cooler running temperature of the voice coil also brings a benefit of reliability and extremely rare driver failure. Most loudspeakers use round copper wire in the voice coil. The A300 uses a far better single layer edge wound copper clad aluminum ribbon. Ribbon voice-coil wire gives more electrical conductor in the magnet gap and increases efficiency, power handling and lowers distortion.

For optimum performance without compromise, the 6.5″ woofer uses a hyper-rigid cast magnesium alloy frame. Its increased rigidity greatly reduces speaker coloration, and its material helps to dissipate heat efficiently from the voice coil much faster than a typical steel speaker former, all of which lead to increased dynamics and power handling and ultimately, a much more satisfying listening experience.

Proprietary Horn-Loaded 3″ Ribbon Tweeter

The horn-loaded tweeter is a true ribbon with silky, extended high frequency performance. The A300 tweeter is made with the highest quality aluminum ribbon, strong Neodymium Rare Earth magnets coupled with an appropriate transformer to give it high sensitivity, superb transient response, extended frequency range and ultra-high resolution. A wide frequency range and good transient response is vital for the dynamics of music such as the musical density of symphonic music, jazz ensembles, or pop / rock. The design is directional to minimize reflections off the walls and ceiling, improving the clarity of localization cues for that deliver the kind of precision stereo imaging audiophiles crave.

25mm MDF Cabinet with Real Cherrywood Veneer

The A300 cabinet is built from 25mm rigid MDF with cherry wood veneer finished in satin lacquer. Strong internal bracing supports and stabilizes the drivers and eliminates cabinet resonance and vibration to a minimum. To further reduce coloration, the cabinet interior is fully lined with 36mm thick waved sound absorption material.

​If you compare the materials used by the competition, you’ll find cabinets with thinner side-walls, no bracing, and little to no absorption material.  These are features that lead directly to higher performance and better sound quality with no coloration of the sound by the cabinet, its inert and silent.

     Rear Panel Controls and Inputs

The electronics package is state-of-the-art and includes ultra-efficient Class D amplification, a remote controlled digital preamp with a 24/192K DAC, multiple digital inputs including USB, Optical, Coaxial, and Bluetooth AptX 4.0 for wireless hi res audio,  plus RCA and Balanced XLR analog inputs with ADC for your older analog sources. This system is optimized for Bluetooth streaming from your smart phone from any of today’s most popular platforms.
