The perfect A/V receiver for use with Teufel’s active subwoofers

The DecoderStation 6 is less than half the size of a standard A/V receiver. Together with Teufel’s 5.1 multichannel active subwoofers (such as the US 2110/6, US 4110/6, US 8112/8), the DecoderStation 6 creates a complete home cinema system. The division of labor is as followings: The DecoderStation contains the preamplifier while the active subwoofer houses the amplifier. Everything is connected via 3 stereo RCA cables. 

The DecoderStation 6 decodes DTS and Dolby Digital and includes decoders for Dolby Pro Logic II making it well equipped for any incoming sound formats whether from televisions, Blu-ray players or game consoles. No additional A/V receivers or amplifiers are required.

Even better: HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel) allows you to connect your television and Blu-Ray player to the DecoderStatoin with a single HDMI cable. Video from the Blu-ray player is passed along to the television and audio from television programs is delivered to the DecoderStation via the HDMI cable’s Audio Return Channel.

This makes it unnecessary to run an additional audio cable from the television.

In addition, the DecoderStation 6 comes with an integrated module for transmitting the subwoofer signal. If your subwoofer is equipped with Teufel’s Subwoofer Wireless Receiver, you’ll be able to operate it wirelessly.

Thanks to HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), it’s possible to regulate volume levels on the DecoderStation 6 using a standard television remote. The remote that comes with the DecoderStation is therefore only required for the initial setup.

Thanks to Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX codec, music is played back wirelessly in near CD quality. Any music stored on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet can be easily playback by your system when connected to the DecoderStation 6. In addition, music from apps like Spotify, YouTube or iTunes can be streamed via Bluetooth for a never-ending supply of new tunes.

The DecoderStation’s innovative construction includes a cooling system that doesn’t use fans. This not only allows the system to be incredibly small – it makes it noise free.
Proven Teufel Quality

Double midrange drivers = maximum power. Five identically constructed loudspeakers ensure a harmonious overall sound, transforming movies, music, and games into an all-encompassing experience. Two midrange drivers per satellite also ensure optimal speech intelligibility and the richest possible sound – even at low volumes. The new, neutral tuning in combination with a 2-way configuration lets every nuance be heard.

The Consono 35 Mk3 ia quite simply the best deal around in terms of price, sound, and aesthetics in proven Teufel quality with the latest technological innovations. An elegant, timeless design combined with long-lasting quality at a fair price makes our Consono 35 series an all-time favourite among compact 5.1 home cinema sets. Countless tests and positive customer reviews underscore the reasons why.

What's new

An optimised crossover provides tuning with an even better balance so that the smallest acoustic nuances can be clearly heard. The satellites’ load was also increased. Higher volumes without detectable distortion for dynamic film and gaming audio is the result. Attractive and sturdy metal grilles protect the satellites while sophisticated chrome rings adorn the drivers. Elegant lines and an attractive design complete the high-end look.

In terms of set-up, shelf, stand and wall-mounted are all perfectly good options. The satellites can be placed discreetly on a shelf while the centre speaker is designed to fit discreetly under the visual display. Integrated keyhole brackets allow the speakers to be mounted on the wall or placed on a stand  (AC 1001 SP). The robust, sound-optimising metal grilles keep the drivers safe from curious children and household pets.

Consono 35 Complete review of www.modernhifi.de
Consono 35 Complete review of www.modernhifi.de
"We recommend the system for action films and computer games.”
www.modernhifi.de 06.07.2015
Films: "The Teufel Consono 35 Complete‘s surround soundstage is thoroughly well executed. The set made us feel like we were in the middle of the action. The System constructs a wide soundstage. Effects are also presented alongside of the speakers and circle impressively around our heads.“

"The subwoofer approaches its task a bit too overzealously for our tastes. The levels, however, can be adjusted to one’s personal preferences in the menu. During the Teufel Consono 35 Complete tests, this involved a small adjustment. Only a few decibels to many and you would be literally thrown back into your sofa. [...] With action movies and computer games, a bit bit more is welcome.“

Music: „´"The right crossover setting between the subwoofer and satellites is also essential for music in 2.1 stereo. Once you’ve found the appropriate setting, the bass forms a solid counterpart to the present treble range. In this, Teufel had good intentions and places voices, effects and the overtones in the foreground.”

"Soundtracks to films like The Imitation Game benefit from the Teufel Consono 35 Complete’s broad soundstage. Modern rock, pop and electronic productions do well with the system’s tuning.”

Conclusion:

"The Teufel Consono 35 Complete is a true all-round worry-free package. Unbox, setup, and connect and your movie night can begin. What we really liked is the extensive accessory package and ability to individually adjust the cable lengths. In terms of sound quality, we see room for improvement. The soundstage, however, draws you directly into the film’s action. We recommend the system for action films and computer games.”

Help regarding this product
Do I also have a 6.1/7.1 playback for a 5.1 recording?
Usually, all 6.1/7.1 AV Receivers can generate a 6.1/7.1 playback from a 5.1 recording. The procedure is comparable with the Dolby Pro Logic Decoder, which generates a matrix circuit from the stereo signal of a centre channel.

The AV Receivers thus generate a rear centre channel from the rear R/L channels of a 5.1 recording through the matrix circuit. The stronger the rear R/L effects on the DVD, the stronger the signal from the rear centre.
Can I connect the LT 4 directly to a DVD player or PC?
No.

The LT 4 is a partially active system that requires AV receiver operation. It has a built-in amplifier that only supplies bass tones in the subwoofer housing That is why an "AV Receiver", i.e. a combination of radio receiver and multichannel amplifier, is essential for using the LT 4.

The subwoofer is connected from the Line In R input to the AV receiver's sub out jack using a mono RCA cable, while the three front satellites are connected to the three speaker outputs of the AV Receiver using the speaker cable and are supplied with power from there.

Connect signal-emitting source appliances such as DVD player or PC etc. directly to the corresponding input jacks on the AV Receiver.
When would it be worth upgrading my 5.1 system to 6.1/7.1 sound?
Naturally 5.1 channel systems that play back all of the sound tracks contained on the DVDs already offer an excellent home cinema experience.

For the new 6.1 or 7.1 sound formats, a rear centre channel is controlled in addition to these channels. This channel, coded in the stereo effect channels, enables the better positioning of effects and music signals directly behind where you are sitting.

If using two speakers for the rear centre channel, the optimal seating position is not tailored to an individually specified position, i.e. you don't have to be seated in the exact centre.

In the following cases we would recommend upgrading to a 6.1 or 7.1 system:

• Your sitting position is not always dead centre, or you often have several viewers

• You have had a 5.1 system for a very long time and would like an improvement

• Your AV amplifier/receiver is designed as a 6.1 or 7.1 receiver and offers the corresponding connection possibilities

• You can also set up one and/or two rear centres. If you are currently building/renovating your house or flat, we would recommend you lay the cables for the additional rear centre channels in any case.

• Modern BluRay players usually issue a true 7.1 surround sound signal at all digital outputs and are thus optimally suitable - presuming the relevant AV Receiver - as a signal transmitter for a 7.1 channel home cinema system.
How do I upgrade my system to a 6.1 or 7.1 sound format?
The choice of speaker(s) depends on the AV Receiver/amplifier. This has an additional power amplifier for one rear centre (6.1) or its two (7.1). You can easily see this by the wattage (e.g. 6 x 100 watt or 7 x 100 watt). To the existing (side) rear speakers for right/left (5.1 technology), one or two additional rear centres are utilised in addition (6.1 or 7.1 technology).

• My AV amplifier/receiver has six connections/power amplifiers (6.1):

In this case we recommend connecting the same centre at the rear that you also used in the front area.

• My AV amplifier/receiver has 7 connections/power amplifiers (7.1):

If you already use dipoles or direct emitters for your 5.1 system, then you have a choice of either supplementing two more dipoles or two direct emitters. For wall assembly and a short distance from the seating location to the rear wall (less than 1.00 metres), we would recommend dipoles. As soon as you want to set up the speakers on bases or on a shelf, then direct emitters would be the better choice.

Information:
Even if the AV Receiver/amplifier only has the connection and power amplifier performance for one rear centre, it is still possible to connect two instead of just one speaker through series connection.

Exception:
• The AV amplifier/receiver has seven connections/power amplifiers, but I can only set up one rear centre. As the 7.1 AV amplifiers/receiver also offer the option of operating just one of the two outputs (usually can be set in the speaker set-up!), you can also only connect just one rear centre.

Here we recommend connecting the same centre to the rear that you also used in the front area. For short distances to the listening location (less than 1.00 metres), a dipole would be the better choice - especially if you are also using dipoles at the sides.
Is it a problem if the speakers are at different distances to where you are sitting?
Since the distance and volume of every individual speaker can be adjusted for the digital home cinema receivers, asymmetrical set-ups can be easily compensated. 
How do I equalise my home cinema system with the help of a sound level meter?
Take the level meter with you to the listening position and point the measuring device directly towards the front centre speaker. Now start the sound generator of the receiver (or of the sound card or DVD player) and equalise all speakers in succession to the same level.

The position and alignment of the measuring device should not be changed during this procedure. For a Teufel sound level meter, proceed as detailed in the following:

1. Remove the protective tab from the battery.

2. Set the weighting to "A" - only the "A" position considers the full frequency range during measuring!

3. Set the response to Slow.

4. Set the Range to 70.

5. Start the test noise from your AV device.

6. Change the volume for every individual channel at the AV device so that the level meter shows 75 dB (meaning between +4 and +6).

7. Done!
What is the difference between the 5.1 and 7.1 configuration?
Compared with the 5.1 set, the 7.1 set has two extra speakers for the back rear centre channel.

The 5.1 channel set plays back all sound tracks on DVDs/Blu-rays and creates an excellent home cinema experience.

With the 7.1 sound format, a rear centre channel is also generated in addition to these channels and distributed to two further speakers (the "rear centre"). This channel, which is encoded in the stereo effects channels, allows better location of effects and music signals directly behind the sitting position.

If you use two speakers for the rear centre channel (i.e. installed 7.1 set), the optimum sitting position is not restricted to one specific place, so you don't have to be sitting exactly in the middle and several listeners can enjoy the best sound.
Where is the optimal place for the centre of my Lautsprecher Teufel Surround System in a 5.1/6.1/7.1 configuration?
Because the centre plays back spoken dialogue, this speaker must be positioned as centrally as possible under or over the TV/monitor or the screen.

If the centre is placed outside the area of 40 centimetres to 1.20 meter height, it should be slightly inclined or angled towards the listener.


Can I operate the 5.1 set using a 6.1 or 7.1 receiver?
Yes. All Consono systems are suitable for connection to any conventional AV receiver – regardless of whether they are configured for 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 systems. When connecting a Consono set to a 6.1/7.1 receiver, leave the rear-center terminal(s) unconnected.
Can I use my Consono system to listen to music?
Of course! All of the Consono variants play music from CDs just as well as they play home cinema sound from DVDs. The Consono systems are a top-quality replacement for old stereo speakers.
How do I best set up the Consono's subwoofer?
The Consono subwoofer can be placed anywhere without influencing the set's other loudspeaker. Ideally it is placed on the direct line between the two front satellites. A distance ratio of 1/3 to 2/3 generally brings about good results.
How do I best set up the Consono front satellite speakers?
The front loudspeakers of the Consono sets are best set up based on the traditional stereo model (distance to listener = distance between left and right speaker).

Optional speaker stands or wall mounts are perfect for this task. Using Teufel speaker stands automatically ensures the satellites will be positioned at their optimal height. Wall mounts make it possible to position the speakers vertically or horizontally. When placing the speakers on walls or shelves, the rule of thumb is that a height between 80 centimetres and 1,60 metres should be chosen. If the speakers need to be placed outside of this range, they can also be angled up or down towards the listening position. What's important is that the center and front loudspeakers should be positioned in a straight line or arranged around the television to form a slightly concave line.
Do I absolutely need an AV reciever to use Consono 15, 25 and 35?
Yes.
Can I order the Teufel speakers in different colours than those offered?
To realise the very reasonable sales prices usual for Teufel, it is not possible to offer the speakers in a multitude of housing designs.

This circumstance would drive up the production and storage costs, which would result in a significantly more expensive sales price.

A paint shop in your vicinity will surely be able to repaint the speaker housing to your preferred colour without loss of warranty - after expiry of the eight-week right of return.
Which cables do I need to connect a Teufel speaker set to the AV Receiver?
A home cinema system needs speaker cables to connect the satellite speakers to the receivers, and an NF mono RCA cable to connect the active subwoofer to the sub out socket of the AV Receiver.
When can I use the rear speakers as direct speakers?
If you aren't able to position the speakers close to the wall as described above, you should use the them as direct speakers. For this purpose the rear switch should be tipped outwards. For use as direct speakers, the rear boxes should be set up to the left and right of the listening position - ideally at the same height, e.g. on a shelf or preferably on a base. If the speakers have to be set up so that they are much higher or lower, it may be advisable to align them to the listening point. For wall mounting it is best to use wall brackets that allow for vertical movement. When using the speakers in direct speaker mode, we recommend that the distance between the two rear speakers exceeds the listening position by 1m. But if you (have to) sit closer, please make sure that the front of the speaker is not pointing directly at you; instead, angle the speakers more into the room.
My Bluetooth speaker produces a lesser quality sound with my Windows PC or laptop.
It could be that the speaker is connected as a device with speakerphone function. Please go to: settings menu > devices and printer > BOOMSTER (or other Bluetooth device). Right click on the device and remove the check mark next to the “speakerphone” option.
My subwoofer is humming. What can I do?
This hum can be caused by the connected devices or disruptions in your electricity current. Please do a test to see which it is.

1. Remove the RCA cable from the input on the subwoofer. If the hum is no longer heard, go to point B. Otherwise, follow point A.

A. Attach the net cable of the subwoofer to another electricity outlet (i.e. Kitchen/Bathroom/Bedroom). If the subwoofer still hums, get in contact with our Support team.

Should the hum no longer be there, the disruption was a problem in your power supply, which can, for instance, be caused by dimmers or chargers. To find out where the disruption is, unplug all your devices and work back from there. As soon as the hum is heard, you now know your source of the disruption.

B. In your case, the "ground hum" is responsible for the disruption. Please proceed as follows to discover your source.

  • Disconnect the cable or satellite port from the TV Receiver and check if the hum disappears or not. If it does, you can use a sheath current filter for the cable outlet to prevent this. For example, the sheath current filter AC 9022 ED. If you have a satellite connection, connect the Satellite Receiver to the optical cable playback source - Teufel Optical Digital Cable

  • If this reason can be excluded, separate all devices from the AV Receiver one at a time until the hum stops. The last connected device is then your hum source and should be separated from the others using a galvanic separation filter (found in a retail shop)

  • If this doesn't work, get in contact with us once again so that we can give an individual, helpful response.
Der Subwoofer spielt nicht – was kann ich tun?
1. Falls die Power-Diode nicht leuchtet:
Tauschen Sie die neben dem Netzschalter befindliche Sicherung aus. Falls die Power-Diode danach nicht leuchtet, wenden Sie sich bitte an unseren Service. Falls die Power-Diode danach leuchtet, aber kein Ton zu vernehmen ist, verfahren Sie bitte wie unter Punkt 2. beschrieben.

2. Falls die Power-Diode leuchtet:
Drehen Sie den Pegelregler Level am Subwoofer auf »Minimum«, ziehen das Subwoofer-Cinchkabel am Verstärker ab, drehen Level vorsichtig hoch und berühren den Cinch-Heißleiter des Cinch-Kabels (innen) mit dem Finger. Ist nun ein Brummen oder Knacken zu hören, liegt der Fehler beim Receiver oder seinen Einstellungen. Bleibt der Subwoofer stumm, wenden Sie sich bitte an unseren Service.
How do I connect my fully active Teufel system to a multi-channel sound card?
If your sound card is set up for 5.1 operation, you will usually find three 3.5 mm mini jack outputs. Connect the card using three Y adapter cables in the 3.5 mm mini jacks to 2 x cinch formats to the inputs for the front R/L, rear R/L, centre and subwoofer at the rear of the fully active Teufel set.

The colours of the outputs and the types of signals transferred at each output differ from sound card to sound card. Please refer to the sound card manual. The Teufel system then reproduces the surround signal decoded by the sound card.

The five satellites are connected directly to the speaker clamps on the subwoofer, using the speaker cable supplied. Strip and split the ends of the speaker cable to do so. Speakers and amplifiers have corresponding [+] and [−] clamps. The [+] cable of the speaker cable is marked with a stripe. It is important to observe the correct polarity when connecting the speakers: the plus pole of the speaker connects to the plus pole of the amplifier and the minus pole of the speaker to the minus pole of the amplifier.
The subwoofer switches itself off after a long period at high volume (the satellites keep playing).
It is possible that you have operated the system outside of its performance boundaries.

The system is an extremely good-value, fully active system that performs very well for its class. It has been designed for home cinema use in smaller rooms and for PC use. It should be taken into consideration, especially in fully active operation with sound cards and DVD players, that a PC speaker system cannot fill an entire room with sound, only the area where the user is sitting. This system has not been designed for and is not suitable for long-term use at very high volumes.

If the system is operated when the volume is too high, the safety cut-off in the power pack may be activated. This cut-off switch is required for safety reasons and prevents the power pack, the power amplifiers and the speakers from sustaining damage. If this cut-off switch is activated, it means that the system has reached its performance boundaries.

Our problem-solving tips:

• Position the system speakers closer to where you are sitting. Then much less power will be needed for loud sound reproduction.

• Use an AV Receiver that will supply the satellites with power. This takes the pressure off the power pack and the power amplifiers of the system.

However, a fault cannot be ruled out if the system switches off at low volumes in rooms of 20 m² or smaller.

We are unable to authorise additional active cooling of the power amplifier. It no longer corresponds to the specifications for the operation of our products. Failures caused by additional active cooling can clearly be attributed to negligent action by the user. As operation with active cooling has a direct effect on the function of the product, it voids all warranty claims.
One satellite speaker generates no sound or distorted sound, but the other one works fine. Why?
In order to more precisely identify the problem, please try swapping the channel positions of the two satellite speakers. It should be possible to find out if the problem is a defective satellite speaker, or if it has to do with the electronics of the amplifier. If the satellite speaker functions after the swap, then the electronics of the amplifier may be defective. If not, the satellite speaker is likely broken.
There is no sound coming from either the speakers or the subwoofer
Please check that the operating lights of your Teufel device are on. If not, please change the fuse: it could be that the mains fuse on the subwoofer may have blown due to overvoltage in the mains. The fuse box is located underneath the plug. Use a small screwdriver to lever it out, replace the two jammed fuses and insert the fuse holder back into the fuse box. Now the subwoofer should be ready for use again.
Basic function test.
You can check the function of the subwoofer and the satellites by only connecting the (stereo) signal from an external source that is guaranteed to be good quality, such as a music CD played on a (portable) CD player, using a RCA cable (and possibly a Y adapter) with the front input L/R on the subwoofer.

The other four inputs on the subwoofer do not need to be occupied (= RCA cable disconnected). With this connection plug arrangement of front In L/R, the Concept E Magnum Power Edition amplifier activates all satellites and the subwoofer through internal distribution. If the subwoofer and all five satellites now play correctly via a directly connected CD player, the Concept E Magnum Power Edition was not receiving the correct signal before. Either the cinch cable is defective (try exchanging it) or the output of your source appliance is not producing the correct signal.

If you continue to experience unwanted noise/individual malfunctions, there is possibly a defect in the Teufel system.
How do I connect the five satellites to the Motiv 5?
The five satellites are connected directly to the speaker clamps on the subwoofer, using a normal speaker cable. We recommend using the speaker cable from the MO 500 W accessories package. Separate the ends of the speaker cable and remove the insulation.

Speakers and amplifiers have corresponding [+] and [−] clamps. The [+] cable of the speaker cable is marked with a stripe. It is important that the polarity of the speakers is identical when they are connected: the positive pole of the speaker connects to the positive pole of the amplifier and the negative pole of the speaker to the negative pole of the amplifier. Connecting the cables with the incorrect phases can result in thin sound, weak bass and reduced stereo characteristics. For multichannel surround systems, it is also important that all speakers are connected with the correct polarity in order to ensure the right three-dimensional atmosphere and the correct alignment of the sound.
How do I connect my fully active Teufel system to a notebook?
You can use our fully active sets to create perfect PC sound, not only on a desktop computer but also with a notebook.

If your notebook only has a single 3.5 mm stereo jack output, connect it using a 3.5 mm mini jack cinch Y adapter cable to the front input "In R/L" on the subwoofer.
Thanks to the integrated "Upmix" switch in the Concept E 2/ E Magnum / Motiv 5 / Concept F, the 4 satellite speakers play back a stereo signal and the centre speaker and the subwoofer each play back a mono signal. This admittedly does not sound as perfect as Dolby Digital, but does sound better than pure stereo playback.

You will still have the chance later on to operate your speaker using a convertible external 5.1-capable sound card, in order to experience the full pleasure of Dolby Digital and DTS.

Different companies, such as Creative, Terratec, Toshiba, ESI/Audiotrak and M-Audio, offer solutions for connection to the PCMCIA port or via USB or FireWire.
Do I need the same cable length for all speakers?
In our experience, there is no acoustical difference for different cable lengths for lengths up to 15 metres.
The RAMPA insert at the bottom of the speaker sometimes is turned out with the tamping screw. What can I do about that?
Unscrew the tamping screw from the Rampa insert and screw the Rampa insert back into the bottom of the speaker.
