Description

by Phil Jones

 

The proprietary features of the AIRPULSE™ Model 1 are benchmarks in the field of driver and cabinet design.  From the Hardwood Cherry veneer exterior, the cabinet is 1″ (25mm) thick HDF with robust internal bracing and acoustic damping to eliminate cabinet induced coloration from vibration or resonance.  The rear control panel is black anodized aluminum, with audiophile knobs for manual controls, inset for a flush, elegant fit. Cabinet coloration is the main cause of distortion in speaker design, the first step in making a high quality speaker is an inert cabinet.

The heart of the Model 1 is the 5.5″ Phil Jones Signature Woofer: The dual-layered hard-anodized magnesium alloy cone is combined with a large “underhung” edge-wound ribbon voice coil, a neodymium motor to provide a high magnetic flux that covers the entire voice coil, resulting in 300% lower harmonic and inter‐modulation distortion than most conventional “overhung” designs.  The over-sized voice-coil cleverly dissipates heat build-up, reducing thermal dynamic compression, enabling the speaker to be played at higher levels for longer periods of time with no distortion. You actually hear these innovations, the sound has a signature clarity only found in AirPulse woofers.

The tweeter assembly is marvel of thinking outside the box.  This new ribbon design is 3″ (75mm) tall and horn-loaded with phase correction to keep the high frequencies directional and coherent to the listener, not bouncing off the ceiling, walls, or floors.  This produces the ideal dispersion pattern, focused over a broad listening area with enough “throw” to actually reach your ears coherently, the direct sound of the recording without interference. The result is palpably realistic stereo imaging backed by crisp, well-defined and powerful bass.  Most of all you hear into the music deeper than with conventional designs.

The Model 1 features Bluetooth AptX 4.0 streaming from your favorite sources via smartphone, tablet, or PC, or analog RCA or Balanced XLR Inputs, or choose between coaxial or optical digital inputs up to 192K.

At $995 a pair, the AirPulse™ Model 1 is the best speaker value we’ve seen in a long time, meant to be disruptive.  An all-in-one high end audio system in a box, ready for any source you throw at it, analog or digital; wired or wireless. This is the new modern architecture for high end audio at a price everybody can afford. 

I’m so sure you’re going to love the AIRPULSE™ Model 1 that it comes with a 60 day return privilege; listen to them at home, if you’re not convinced after listening to them that they’re among the best speakers ever created, you can return them for a full refund as long as they’re undamaged and returned complete in the original factory packaging.  Read the extremely favorable new reviews by John Gatski and Steven Rochlin, just click on the logos to open those pages.  Click on the links below to read the full reviews.

    “With decades of experience in loudspeaker design and engineering, Phil Jones of AirPulse has another winner on his hands! The Model-1 active speaker benefits from custom, in-house produced drivers he designed and engineered, including the amazing Signature 5.5″ midrange/woofer. Phil brings us accuracy over editoralization. Add in features for pro audio such as balanced XLR, yet keeping an eye on modern use with Bluetooth with AptX, Optical and Coaxial inputs, the Model-1 will work in virtually home audio system.” Steven Rochlin, EnjoyTheMusic.com Nov 2017

    Phil, I’ve been on the road for about 3 weeks and just got back into my office and turned on my Model-1’s.
    After 3 weeks of car radios and my Bose headphones, I am blown away again by your speakers. Wow, just wow!

    “A Nearly Perfect Small Speaker. If you want accuracy, flexible signal routing and speakers that slide into the smallest listening spaces, AIRPULSE Model One is a prime contender. The sound is so detailed and well balanced that it was easy to give the AIRPULSE an Everything Audio Network Stellar Sound Award” John Gatski, Everythingaudionetwork.blogspot.com, Oct 2017

    “Hey Bob – The speakers are awesome so far….With the speakers about 1.5 ft from the rear wall the bass is seriously impressive, tight, deep and fast – no bloat or boom” Todd Delgiudice, Model One owner, Oct 2017

    Martin Collumns, Hi fi Critic, July 2017

    “…. rock material sounded suitably crisp and quite dynamic, punchy, and with pleasing attack”

    ‘…..clean and powerful bass; the crisp, informative and dynamic treble; and the fine dynamic headroom. It certainly had no problem playing loud and clean”

    “horn geometry does deliver exceptional lateral consistency off-axis”

    “….. well finished and presented active loudspeaker has versatile connection options including wireless remote control, and music streaming via an up to date Bluetooth APTx connection.” Martin Collumns, Hi fi Critic, July 2017

    Rob (audiophile consumer), Sept 2017

    They are a fantastic sounding set of speakers at a very competitive price. I have KEF LS-50s as well as other speakers, and these compare favorably with the KEFs, but at a substantial price difference. The ribbon tweeter integrates smoothly with the woofer, delivering very clear treble as well as substantial amounts of high quality bass. There is no genre of music this can’t play, from classical to jazz, acoustic to rock, all sound clear and accurate. . Add in that they are powered, support Bluetooth Apt-x and AAC codecs, and eliminate additional amplifier and cables, Airpulse has created a winner. Highly recommended.

    “AirPulse A200 (Model One in the USA) is a fantastically neutral speaker, with open, detailed and transparent sound from top to bottom. Add to that very solid build quality and rich set of features, and suddenly its steep price becomes much more reasonable. I was reluctant to return them, I wish I had them for longer. AirPulse A200 lands on top of my wish list to become my new benchmark speaker soon (gotta start saving those pennies), and from now on I am looking forward to next products from AirPulse and Mr. Phil Jones without any anxiety Highly recommended.” Overall score 9,25/10 DigitalStereophony.blogspot.com, Aug 2017
