Surround sound from any source
A ControlStation 2 internal matrix processes inbound stereo signals and distributes them to all five speakers and the subwoofer. The resulting sound is far better than conventional two-channel PC stereo sound. This feature can also be turned off using the ControlStation 2 "Pure" mode. Authentic Dolby Digital/dts 5.1 is rendered in its original form by the sound card.
ControlStation 2 includes an infrared remote control which gives you easy wireless access to all of the essential functions of your sound system even when you aren't in front of your computer.
ControlStation 2 includes commonly used controls right on the front of the device. Adjust the volume, switch between audio sources or mute the system with the push of a button.
For all of its practical advantages, Concept E 100 Control renders an impressive sound stage. You'll soon see why Teufel multimedia systems easily outperform competing products in the same category. The system boasts a 5.1 power amplifier with a 200 watt maximum output, a 200 mm bass driver in a voluminous wooden enclosure and five painstakingly tuned satellite loudspeakers.
Perfect up to 15 square metres
Concept E 100 Control represents an entry-level PC surround sound system at a very appealing price. No competing system delivers the same high quality sound for spaces up to 15 square metres.
ControlStation 2 is a preamplifier capable of expanding any 5.1 PC loudspeaker set into a comprehensive sound system. The device is ideal for anyone whose primary audio source is a computer.
For more connectivity and surround sound at your PCWithout a ControlStatoin 2, you'll have to connect your 5.1 PC speaker set directly to your computer's sound card. That means you won't have extra inputs for an MP3 player, an iPod, smartphone, DJ mixer, etc. You're also missing out on easy access to headphone and microphone jacks. The ControlStation 2 provides all of this and more.
This handy little preamplifier lets you link external audio sources to your PC speakers. Connect up to two analogue audio sources to the ControlStation 2 and switch between sources: PC, Audio 1 and Audio 2 without having to plug in and unplug your source devices.
ControlStation 2 puts an end to crawling under the computer table to connect a microphone, headphone or headset. Connect them directly to the ControlStation 2 instead. It's ideal for gaming and making VOIP calls.
An internal matrix processes inbound stereo signals in order to distribute them across five speakers and a subwoofer. The result is a significant boost in sound quality over conventional two-channel PC speaker sound. This feature can also be turned off using the "Pure" mode offered by ControlStation 2.
The ControlStation 2 includes an infrared remote control that gives you easy wireless access to all essential functions, even when you aren't sitting directly in front of your computer.
ControlStation 2 is a tool perfectly adapted to the needs of a PC audio listener. Combine it with Teufel PC speakers and you'll have the perfect sound system for your computer.

The integrated 5.1 amplifier boasts a very considerable 200 watts maximum output, which is logically distributed to the six feed channels. At the rear it offers a connection for direct connection to 5.1 sound cards or other analogue sources.
The 200 mm side-mounted bass speaker in the precisely calibrated bass reflex casing guarantees a deep bass that can be also adjusted using the front controller. Just like the total volume and the operating status of the woofer. By the way, power consumption during standby operation: less than 1 watts!

Thanks to a high-performance driver with an 80 mm diameter and a subwoofer with active filtering, it can powerfully play back the complete frequency range between mid-tone and treble without breaks or distortion. The curved front ensures better sound radiation than previous conventional constructions.
The acoustically transparent cover of the 9 x 9 centimetre sound marvel can be removed for “open” operation, but normally has a “floating” mounting: Benefits: Minimisation of edge reflections. A curved front provides improved sound radiation compared to previous constructions.
The supplied matching table stand ensures optimal placement options on a desk or shelf. An optional Shortlock bracket can be used to fasten and then horizontally/vertically swivel the cube. The separately available M 60 P base is an alternative stand placement option.

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.
We recommend you increase the volume of the source device connected to the Concept E and, at the same time, reduce the volume of the Concept E. After this, the system should work perfectly.
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.
You can check the basic noise level by connecting a signal, via a cinch cable, from an external source that is guaranteed to be good quality – such as a music CD e.g. on a portable CD player – to the Aux L/R input on the subwoofer. If all of the satellites are now playing noise-free, it is because they weren't receiving the right signal before. Either the cinch cable is defective (try swapping them around) or the output of your source appliance is not producing an adequate signal.
However, if you continue to hear increased noise on this channel there is possibly a fault in the Concept F. Please check which satellites are affected by changing the satellites around and to find out whether the satellite or the subwoofer electronics are producing excessive noise. If the fault "moves" with the satellite the satellite is the problem. On the other hand, if the hissing remains on the same channel, the subwoofer amplifier electronics are the cause.
If you can still hear the crackling, please check which satellites are affected by swapping them around and to find out whether the satellite or the subwoofer electronics are generating the excessive crackling. If the "fault" moves with the satellites, the satellite is affected. The subwoofer amplifier electronics may be responsible if you can still hear the crackling.
If the interference continues, try using a shorter high-end shielded and insulated RCA connector cable.
