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