PC/Multimedia

Teufel presents a hifi music system for PCs designed with a focus on natural sound without colouration or artiical effects.

PC sound that's transparent, natural, and fully enjoyable

The concept B 200 USB is quite simply the best compact multimedia hifi stereo system for your PC. Designed specifically for PC /multimedia applications, the Concept B 200 USB is a hifi system that delivers amazingly authentic sound without distortion with just two slim two-way speakers and a 120 watt amplifier in a robust, full-metal enclosure. The speakers are ideally placed to the left and right of the screen, whereas the small amplifier easily fits just about anywhere else.  

Connection to the PC is made via an integrated USB soundcard, making the system independent of the inferior chips found in many PCs. You are therefore guaranteed superior Teufel sound quality with any computer. As Gadgetzone.nl noted in its review, "Listening to music on the Concept B 200 USB is a real pleasure. Even picky audiophiles won't find any grounds for complaint."

You'll never have to unplug one device to make room for another again.The amplifier offers three connections to source devices in addition to PCs: MP3 players, iPod docks, and game consoles can all benefit from the Concept B 200 USB’S amazing sound. Headphones and microphones can also be connected, and an integrated USB hub is yet another handy feature.

The Concept B 200 USB brings the rarefied world of hifi to the often pedestrian territory of PC sound. For those who enjoy natural, neutral tones, the Concept B 200 USB is an excellent choice. Perhap Audio magazine summed it up best in its review with the following three points:

Stereo Speaker CB 200 F
The two slender stereo speakers each feature two 80 mm high excursion midrange/bass drivers as well as a 25 mm dome tweeter - all chassis and klippel optimised. The drivers and their corresponding Teufel amplifier have been perfectly aligned with each other and configured for their intended purpose of creating realistic PC sound.

The bass driver is on the smaller side, but still manages an impressive 80 Hz on -3 dB thanks to a trumpet bass reflex vent. The amplifier can be connected via the included stereo cables.

Concept B 200 USB review of hardwarelabs.de
"Excellent multimedia capabilities"
hardwarelabs.de 10/2010
“Whoever’s looking for a balanced high-end 2.0 computer speaker system would be well advised to get a Concept B 200 USB. The system offers excellent multimedia capabilities and high level stability as well as a clear sound spectrum (…).

The workmanship is – as one has come to expect from Teufel - of excellent quality and leaves nothing to be desired. The control elements are user friendly, were well implemented, and make the user’s life easier.

At €249, the set doesn’t come cheap, yet it’s worth every Euro thanks to the high level of workmanship and very good sound. Of course, for the same price Teufel offers the Concept E100 Control with an active subwoofer and 5.1 sound reproduction. But for stereo lovers, the Concept B 200 USB is clearly the better choice.”
"This compact audio package has both: flexibility and excellent sound!"
Gramophone 07/2010
"Although it’s a desktop system and therefore has a limited bass, the sound is neither weak nor unremarkable - not in the slightest thanks to a sophisticated bass reflex vent at the bottom of the speakers.

[…] The system renders a compelling sound with grandiose clarity and details making it much more than a supplement for the desktop PC speakers that I previously had. It has more than enough power to fill a small to medium sized room with sound. Used on its own, the system delivers an excellent sound, never strained or tired, when substantial orchestral pieces are played.”

"For savvy buyers"
Audio 04/2010
"The Concept B 200 USB really kicked into gear when we connected it to a Mac via analogue. With a bass foundation which seldom left us wanting a subwoofer, these Teufel speakers packed some real punch through their downward-slanted bass reflex openings.

From classical music to rock or pop, the Concept neatly rendered a virtual stage in front of our PC monitor. The sound levels it delivered led us to forget we were sitting in front of a computer as we closed our eyes to listen. The Concept then outperformed itself as our testers connected it to the computer via USB and transmitted signals through the set's internal sound card. The rendering then sounded even more homogenous and unfolded with delicacy and exact detail."

• Perfect configuration
• Good workmanship
• Very good price-to-performance ratio

"Small investment, big performance"
Player 03/2010
"In purchasing the Concept B 200 USB ..., an end-user receives a very well equipped stereo system which shines in its delivery of excellent sound quality and through its integrated bass which easily holds stride with the subwoofers of some 2.1 configurations.

The system's compact preamplifier delivers 120 Watts of output and generates more than enough pressure for an authentic tonal experience. Thanks to its integrated USB sound card, even older computers without their own sound card can be equipped to serve as high-quality sound systems.

Additionally, its USB hub makes expansion through other devices possible. The Concept B 200 USB is an equally good offer for both ambitious gamers and audiophile music lovers (…)."

"Editor`s Choice"
Micro Mart 02/2010
"It`s not a cheap set of speakers, but you really do get what you pay for and the external amplifier and soundcard make all the difference. Considering the quality of the manufacturing, the design and the lovely sound, these speakers are great value for money. It`s got the looks, the style and the sound quality. In fact, the only downside I can find is that now I`ve listened to them I want a set of my own!

A wonderful-sounding system, which should give you many years of listening pleasure."

"Teufel's customary quality meets heavenly acoustics!"
Gamernetwork 01/2010
"Despite its compact construction, the Concept B 200 USB delivers a convincing performance in all regards. Even expensive 2.1 systems can't keep up with this new combination "media station" and set of stereo speakers.

Its high-quality construction, excellent acoustic characteristics and numerous extras (USB-hub, in-and-output for microphones and headsets) form a perfectly symbiotic combination. The device is beyond easy to use and has a classic visual appeal – both good reasons to buy a Concept B 200 USB. Teufel's customary quality meets heavenly acoustics!"

Concept B 200 USB review of Hexus
"A pleasure"
Hexus 01/2010
"Teufel`s first-ever 2.0 PC speaker solution targets the PC user wanting Hi-Fi quality sound at their desk. With that in mind, the Concept B 200 USB is a success. We`ve never heard a set of 2.0 PC speakers that sound this good.

In use, listeners can close their eyes and forget they`re sat in front of their desktop PC- it almost feels like you`re resting in view of two bigger floor-standing stereo speakers. The sound on offer really is that impressive. Offering stunning clarity, the Concept B 200 USB will treat PC users to detail they may never have known existed. Listening to the Piano melodies of "Ludovico Einaudi`s" Divenire is a treat, with each note produced firmly and precisely.


Changing tune, "The Rolling Stones`" Almost Hear You Sigh comes across as sumptuous, with a swathe of warm bass, clear voice and accurate highs that aren`t too sharp. You could probably pick up an amp and a set of high-end stereo speakers from your local A/V specialist... then again, there`s a good chance you won`t get a dedicated USB sound card that negates the electronic noise created by your PC, or an integrated USB hub.

If you`re after a 2.0 PC solution that offers truly excellent sound, you`re very very unlikely to be disappointed by Teufel`s Concept B 200 USB. Such is the company`s confidence in its products, the Concept B 200 USB comes backed by a 12-year warranty, and dissatisfied listeners can always fall back on Teufel`s eight-week return policy. You don`t get much fairer than that."

"A great PC speaker system with a range of inputs"
Techradar.com 01/2010
"The build quality of the Teufel Concept B 200 is superb. The control unit in particular has been packed with some serious audio technology. Not only does it offer fantastic definition and an even balance between high and low frequencies, it`s a really cool way of controlling music on your desk.

The versatility of the Concept B 200 is also a huge selling point. Many people will have their PC near CD players, MP3 players or similar devices, which can be connected to the control unit for an integrated and high quality experience.

The quality of the amplification is exceptional, and if you`re looking for a 2.0 system, then don`t settle for less than the Concept B 200."

Verdict:
"Music fans looking for a fantastic desktop system should seriously consider the Teufel Concept B 200 system- there`s no better 2.0 system for music in this price range in terms of connectivity and sound quality."

"Powerful sound from Teufel."
Het Belang van Limburg 12/2009
"The Concept B 200 USB is a stereo PC loudspeaker system from Teufel – a well-known name in the audio world. The focus is on the amplifier inside, that's got an integrated sound card so that even laptops or desktops with a not so good soundchip will sound amazing.

The amplifier delivers a 120 watt performance on the bass and high tones of the stereo loudspeaker. The entire thing is available with a USB port for three further USB devices, such as a printer or USB stick. There's also a connection possibility for, for example, MP3 player, headphones and microphones.

The sound is amazing: clean, natural and spatial – completely recommended for jazz, rock and pop music fans (…)

The worksmanship is very orderly (and also the professional audio cables) and the design is full of style."

"For the more-discerning PC-based music enthusiast, these fine noisemakers connect to your computer's USB port, While a separate amp makes sure the 120W of sound is sweet and good-natured.

Concept B 200 USB review of PC Pro
Concept B 200 USB review of PC Pro
"...it all sounded balanced and clean"
PC Pro 11/2009
"Despite the prevalence of 5.1 and 7.1 PC speaker systems, there's still a lot to be said for sticking with straightforward stereo. If you do, you'll invariably get better quality, and you won't have a mess of cables festooning your computer either.

Teufel's Concept B speakers push that theory to the max. In the box you get not only a pair of twin-driver speakers, but also a compact D-class amplifier, which pumps out a respectable 60W per channel. Interestingly, connection is made via USB, meaning all the digital to analogue conversion takes place away from the electronically-noisy confines of your PC. And another point worthy of note is that each channel is split in two, with 30W of juice being supplied to each driver.

Look around the rear and you'll discover the amp is no one-trick pony, with a hatful of other connections available. You get a further two USB inputs, one 3.5mm socket, a pair of stereo phono inputs for connecting traditional hi-fi separates, plus 3.5mm microphone and headphone sockets on the front panel. If the amp sounds impressive, the speakers look even more so - if you can find room for them on your desk, that is.

Each speaker squeezes in three drivers - a mid, a bass and a tweeter - and measures a not-inconsequential 100 x 218 x 314mm (WDH), so you'll have to clear some space to fit them in. And aurally, they make a big first impression too. You can keep turning up the volume until your ears hurt, with nary a hint of distortion or rattle. Bass is kept in check but is still punchy, and the top end is detailed without sounding too harsh. We listened to everything from Radiohead through Aphex Twin to Stravinksy's The Rite of Spring and it all sounded balanced and clean."

"Top performance for a unique price – typically Teufel!"
Area DVD 11/2009
"Even besides its fantastic price, the Teufel Concept B 200 USB 2.0 system clearly sits in the best group of PC and Multimedia sound systems.

This set blurs the boundaries between the normally labour-intensive and cost-efficiently developed PC sound systems and impeccable stereo mini/macro systems and thus cooly over achieves into the area of far more expensive 2.0 and 2.1 stereo systems. Above average construction of the inner amplifier provides great joy when viewing.

The flexible room placement opportunities should be measured as well above average. All in all, Teufel really succeeds with this system solution in an amazing combination of optics, sound pleasure, quality and equipment package."

"High quality, strong sound and flexible to place in a room – the multimedia 2.0 sound solution for a typically Teufel price. "

• Amazing, hefty and dynamic sound
• Very high volume level availability
• Excellent spatiality and accuracy
• Flexible room placement and high functionality
• Fantastic construction of the amplifier

"For a low price, the Columa 200 5.1 Set M combines an attractive look, a [...] solid construction, and remarkable sound quality."
Area DVD 02/2014
[...] The Columa 200 5.1 Set M won us over with its fresh, contemporary look - [...] The loudspeakers’ depth of just 7.7 cm is an excellent feature that allows these Berlin “Towers of good sound” to blend in well with modern flat screen TVs. Both the satellites in the back and the identically constructed centre can be fastened to the wall. Mounts for this purpose can be found on the back. [...]

The [...] column loudspeakers are constructed as sealed two way systems with double midrange drivers. [...] The 19 mm tweeter is flanked by two 70 mm midbass drivers. [...] All of the drivers have a cellulose membrane. The total internal volume of the MDF enclosure is around 8.4 liters. The look is as pleasant as with the other components. [...]

The [subwoofer] is equipped with a 160 mm bass driver with a coated cellulose membrane as well as an integrated [...] 100 watt amplifier. It can play from 43 to 200 Hz with a maximum 106DB/1m and operates according to a bass reflex principle. The MDF enclosure [...] blends in with the rest of the set. [...] The standby power mode operates at just 0.4 watts. [...]

The powerful, substantial bass has an impressive sound. [It] sounds clear, powerful, and dynamic even with elevated levels. That a € 400 loudspeaker set is behind this performance cannot be at all discerned. One would guess that the Columa 200 costs much more and even those who know a thing or two about [audio], would never think that they’re dealing with an inexpensive bargain with this type of music and source material [playback]. [...]

The Columa 200 again proves that it’s able to bring notably more sound into the living room for very little money than many expensive systems, especially soundbars or active TV louspeakers. [...]

Conclusion
For a low price, the Columa 200 5.1 Set M combines a chic look, quite [...] good workmanship, and a formidable sound quality. The column/satellite system is impressive in every regard, specially when serving as the acoustic middle point of a contemporary living room. [M]any [...] will be very happy with the sound and look of this slender system.

"Teufel doesn't mess around!"
Trusted Reviews 10/2009

"It's immediately apparent that Teufel is doing something different with the Concept B 200 USB speakers. They're priced like a decent set of 2.1-channel speakers... but as the System 5 THX Select 2 speaker set showed, Teufel doesn't mess around when it comes to providing excellent audio equipment.

Rather than connecting to the audio output of your PC, the Concept Bs come with a dedicated amplifier unit, the CB 200 CS Control Station, that connects via USB. The benefit is self-evident; bypassing your PC's integrated (read: rubbish), soundcard.

There are two reasons you might want to do that. One, the digital-to-analogue decoding in Teufel's amp unit will almost certainly be better than what your PC can provide, and two, amplifying an audio signal that has already been amplified itself (as a 'normal' set of speakers would) will only ever degrade it - an issue which Teufel's set-up avoids.

If clarity, precision and detail are important to you then the Concept B 200 USB speakers will be right up your street. The quality of their audio reproduction is nothing short of phenomenal. There's simply no other way to put it. I'm not exaggerating in the slightest to say that these are the best sounding PC speakers I've ever had the pleasure of listening to by a decent margin. "

"Hifi goes PC"
Digital Home 04/2009
"It is hard to believe how inventive game fun and with what kind of dynamics these two two-way speakers work. In 'Right Here in my Arms' by H.I.M one has the impression of sitting in front of a desk before two compact PC speakers but never believes it – you believe you're sitting in front of much larger, heavier speakers.

This set also plays without the subwoofer, as is ably represented by Eddy Louiss' 'Blues for Klook'. Here the Teufel duo runs at the highest level and surprises with its rich, extremely dynamic reproduction with a settled bass sound that we've not ever experienced by such compact PC speakers.

Conclusion
The time of crappy music playback on a PC or Mac is finally over with the introduction of the Teufel Concept B 200 USB. It's a compact system which isn't just fully equipped and receives signals easily from virtually any source device but also sounds pretty darn good."

Concept B 200 USB review of Area DVD
"Dynamic, strong levels, natural sound – the Kombo 22 has a very mature, high-end sound."
Area DVD 02/2014
“Teufel packs faultless stereo into a compact enclosure and tops it all off with Bluetooth. The Kombo 22 micro hi-fi system comes with 60 watts, a CD/MP3 receiver, USB port, and lively VT11 2-way bookshelf speakers for a mere € 250.

The CD receiver KB 22 CR can play back audio CDs, CD R’s, and CD RWs and is also equipped with a USB 2.0 interface. [...]
The speakers [VT 11, Anm] have a very sleek appearance, but exhibit characteristics that are very unusual for inexpensive speakers: The corners are rounded in the back and instead of cheap LS terminal clamps, there are proper screw terminals. The matte exterior makes a good impression and no flaws could be discerned. Removing the simple fabric covers exposes a view of well fitted drivers. [...]

How does the Komo 22 perform in listening tests?

We first established a Bluetooth connection with our Apple iPhone 5S. This was very easy to accomplish via a pairing button on the remote control and by selecting the "BT“ input. We started right off with 2014's Bodybangers remix of Dr. Alban‘s euro dance hit "It’s My Life.” It’s helpful to switch on the S bass function for a bass that is more powerful and harder without being vague or imprecise. The separation between vocals and instruments is clear and the levels are faultless. One is simply not accustomed to this sort of earth-moving sound from compact CD players of this type. [...]

 [...] the Kombo 22’s playback is clear, multifaceted, and thoroughly dynamic: A good outcome from such a small system. It’s especially well suited for holiday homes, bedrooms, or home offices, and feels like a full-fledged system instead of a improvisational sound solution. [...]

Conclusion

With the Kombo 22, Teufel has added a small stereo system with a pleasantly strong sound, a winning combination of stable levels, dynamic overall performance, and natural acoustics to their product portfolio. Modern media aspects were taken into consideration with an integrated Bluetooth function and the USB connection. The little system exhibits solid workmanship and has a very fair price, as we’ve come to expect from Teufel. The down side: The CD drive could be quieter, and the VT 11 is not exactly a design wonder. [...]

Dynamic, strong levels, natural sound – the Kombo 22 has a very mature, high-end sound."

Help regarding this product
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.
What operating systems does Concept B 200 USB function with?
The internal USB sound card of this Teufel set is automatically recognized by Windows XP / 2000 / Vista / 7, Linux and Mac OS X with no need for additional drivers.
What is the best way for me to set up the product?
When setting up a PC sound system, it's best to take into account the relative positioning of the computer screen and the satellite speakers. Ideally the satellite speakers should be placed on either side of the screen at an equal distance. The amplifier can be placed anywhere.
Can I directly connect my USB MP3 player with the USB port?
No. The USB port on the amplifier/controller device is only meant for use with desktop or laptop computers.
Is it possible to connect the product directly to any of the following: MP3 Player, satellite receiver, television, XBox, PlayStation, CD player, DJ mixer, etc.?
Yes. The produkt is a universal device which can be connected directly to any of the above mentioned devices via the analogue stereo terminal on the amplifier/controller device.
How do I connect the amplifier to a PC, Mac or laptop?
The amplifier of this loudspeaker set is designed to be connected with any desktop or laptop computer. The connection can be made over the computer's USB port or miniature stereo output jack. We always recommend using the USB connection unless your computer is equipped with a high-quality sound card.
The sound quality via USB is not optimal.
If you find the system delivers significantly better audio quality via analogue audio input than it does via the USB soundcard integrated in the subwoofer, please deactivate the equalizer settings on your software audio player.
Distortions and interruptions happen while playing audio via the USB terminal.
Windows Vista and Windows 7 are shipped with activated power saving features which powers down the USB port at certain times. We recommend turning off the power saving option for the USB port. This can be done via Control Panel\System\Power Options.
I am using the system with Windows 7 or Vista, and the loudspeakers (satellites and subwoofer) go completely silent when I start common programs like iTunes or Internet Explorer. When I close the programs they start to work again. Why?
Windows power management may be set to cut off power to inactive USB devices. This can affect the set. Please turn off the setting.
Was passiert mit den Drehreglern der Kabelfernbedienung, wenn ein Kopfhörer angeschlossen wurde?
Bei angeschlossenem Kopfhörer kann mit dem Volume-Regler die Lautstärke des Kopfhörers angepasst werden. Der Bass-Regler ist ohne Funktion.
I am getting interfering radio signals!
The interference of unwanted radio frequencies may occur and is caused by local conditions. If this happens, unplug all RCA cables from the product and test to see if the radio signals stop.

If the interference continues, try using a shorter high-end shielded and insulated RCA connector cable.
