The top seller from Berlin
For years, the ULTIMA series has been a byword for excellent price to performance ratio. You won't get this much sound for this little money anywhere else. Featuring superior audio technologies, the ULTIMA series delivers perfectly balanced playback to increase your enjoyment of all genres of music, as well as gaming and of course films. We hear just that all the time from enthusiastic industry journalists and customers. The new ULTIMAs can be easily recognized by the label over the tweeter.
Developed in Berlin
Product development for the ULTIMA series, like all our other speaker series, is completed start to finish here in our Berlin labs and anechoic chambers. After years of cross-team refinement and optimization including a healthy dose of customer feedback, the ULTIMA 40 is a true marvel of engineering.
Tweeter with phase plug and waveguide
Two features that are nearly unheard of at this price point are the tweeter's built in phase plug and waveguide, providing for extreme precision in the high-frequency range.
Mitigates phase interference near the tweeter by directing waves outward toward the listener, enhancing response at high-frequency bandpasses.
Exactingly guides each individual sound, keeping all instruments and voices crisp, clear, and distinct.
Design and materials
We took no shortcuts when it came to optimizing our ULTIMA speakers. Here are the highlights of our new range:
The cornerstone of its excellent sound lies in the design of our 3-way system, which resulted from years of development. The drivers work together in harmony across all frequency ranges, resulting in extremely smooth and clear sound production.

"...this is a pair of sublime tower speakers, up there with [many] popular consumer audio brands."Outer Audio 05/2019"If you’re looking for something different, then the Teufel Ultima 40 is certainly one to check out. I put these on par with the Klipsch R-24F. However, I would say the R-24F has a more controlled bass response than the Ultima 40. If you’re looking for a stereo pair, then you should definitely consider the Ultima 40 Active over the passive model. You’ll get better value for money by not having to spend extra on an amplifier and cabling as well as a more efficient speaker with factory fitted and tested amplification. If you’re looking for a full surround sound system, you have the option of the 5.1 Ultima Series which is an absolute gem of a system and also very affordable for the size and quality you get."Read more at: https://www.outeraudio.com/teufel-ultima-40-review/More...

"...a big step up."modernhifi.de 04/12/2018
"[...] The Teufel Ultima 40 MK3 2018 offer a lot of bang for your euro. The first impressions you get are of a fundamentally warm sound and crisp bass. The lows sound punchy and are well-defined, though not overdone.""The Ultima 40 MK3 from Teufel Audio have not only undergone cosmetic changes, but were a big step up sonically. Visually, the speakers make a strong impression with their clear lines. And from a technical standpoint, the solid construction plays up to their strengths for both small and large rooms. With neutral dynamics, the speakers are just as well suited to orchestral recordings as pop music. Anyone on the hunt for bargains has come to the right place.."Read more at: https://modernhifi.de/teufel-ultima-40-mk3-2018-test/More... Collapse details...
"Visually, and sonically, this speaker was a real gas."Connect 08/01/2019
"It played dynamically and painted a very vivid sound image. Even when the playback felt a bit boxed in and Marla Glen's voice came through with a bit of extra color, this speaker made a pleasant impression compared to its 2016 predecessor thanks to its somewhat airier high-frequency reproduction. This provided the soundstage with a more spacious feel..." "Visually, and sonically, this speaker was a real gas."
