Description


 

The proprietary features of the AIRPULSE™ Model One are benchmarks in the field of driver and cabinet design.  From the Hardwood Cherry veneer exterior, the cabinet is 1″ (25mm) thick with robust internal bracing and acoustic damping to virtually eliminate cabinet induced coloration from vibration or resonance.  The rear control panel is black anodized aluminum, inset for a flush, elegant fit.

The heart of the Model One is the 5.5″ Phil Jones Signature Woofer: The dual-layered hard anodized aluminum cone is combined with a large “underhung” (more expensive) edge-wound voice coil, a neodymium motor to provide a high magnetic flux that covers the entire voice coil resulting in 3x to 4x lower harmonic and inter‐modulation distortion than conventional “overhung” (less expensive) designs. The voice-coil is thermally coupled to the aluminum woofer cone, which acts as a heat sink. This cleverly dissipates heat from building up in the voice-coil, reducing thermal dynamic compression, enabling the speaker to be played at higher levels for longer periods of time with no distortion. This is the design feature that made Phil’s Acoustic Energy AE-1 so famous it became a “classic” among people who know speakers worldwide. Stereophile Magazine’s John Atkinson said of the AE1 “…it redefines the art of miniature speaker design”  in his 1995 review.

The tweeter assembly is marvel of thinking outside the box.  This new ribbon design is 3″ 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, the kind found on full range electrostats. Thats why I’m in love with this product already!

The Model One lets you listen to your favorite streaming apps wirelessly via Bluetooth AptX 4.0 from your SmartPhone or any Bluetooth enabled source, or plug in using the RCA or Balanced XLR Analog Inputs, or choose between coaxial or optical digital inputs up to 192K.

What we have here is twice the performance for half the price, at $995 a pair the AIRPULSE™ Model One is the best value speaker proposition in the audio industry today.  I believe in Phil Jones designs, as an owner of the original Acoustic Energy AE-1, I can give this speaker my highest recommendation, it’s an evolutionary modernization of the original, dramatically updated with all the latest thinking and all new parts, from one hell of a speaker designer.  This is a great example of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. In my book, its art. It’s Phil’s art and I dig it. I think you will too.

I’m so sure you’re going to love the AIRPULSE™ Model One 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.

    “…. 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”

    “….. 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

    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
