Overview of our technologies
Compared to the entry model Concept E 100, the Concept E 200 is distinguished by two qualities: more performance, more bass.
Ideal combination set
This enables the set not only to produce loud and sustained sound for a PC workstation, but also for an entire living room up to 20 m². The basic concept of the speaker combinations is identical: an active subwoofer with a 5.1 amplifier supplies five compact, yet powerful satellite speakers.
>However, we clearly stepped up the notch for the CE 200 subwoofer: 300 watt maximum performance and a 250 mm bass speaker in the enlarged casing guarantee that it's louder, and more bassy.
Plenty of input sources
The Concept E 200 was also designed to be connected directly to the sound card outputs of the computer. However, DVD player, CD portables, MP3 player, iPod docks, TV set, radio transmission systems and many other components with analogue outputs can also be used as sound sources. Even stereo signals are passed through the five speakers and the subwoofer, making the set sound much better than the normal stereo playback of ordinary computer speakers!
Easy audio fun
The three buttons on the front of the subwoofer will let you directly carry out the most commonly used functions: adjusting the volume and the bass level, and switching off the unit. Everything else is controlled by the software or hardware of the sound source, which sends stereo or 5.1 signals to the Concept E 200. The Teufel speaker set converts this into an impressive sound backdrop.
The subwoofer generates deep basses down to 36 Hertz (-3 db), the full range satellites reproduce all music information from the mid-tone to the treble range undistorted and down to the last detail, thanks to their meticulous set-up.
Use the Concept E 200 to listen to your multimedia files at a new quality that will make you realise: wow - this is fun!
Because of the many different customer demands we do not include cables with this shipment. You can order matching cables in our Teufel web shop by going to “ Accessories”. They also come as ready-to-connect cable sets and are attractively priced.
Concept E 200 Digital is the right choice for a user-friendly and affordable introduction to Teufel’s excellent sound. Concept E 200 Digital will live up to your expectations, as a deluxe PC sound system, a multimedia station, or a small home theatre centre.
This clever high-tech tool transforms an active 5.1 speaker ensemble into a complete multimedia centre. Thanks to the Decoderstation 5, a purely PC-based set is converted to a universal system to use anywhere.
Connect 8 devices
Up to eight external devices can be used with the Decoderstation 5 via a Teufel multichannel speaker set – without shifting the plugs around – simply by pressing a button on the decoder itself or using the infrared remote control.
Full surround quality
The integrated Dolby/dts decoders of the Decoderstation 5 enable an original 5.1 playback in full surround quality. A 32-character display keeps you informed about current function status; the supplied remote control permits you to conveniently control all functions from your listening location.

This opulent performance can be finely adjusted using the level controller of the three switches on the front after the connections from its rear 5.1 cinch connectors have been made to surround sound cards or other stereo sources.
The standard side-mounted bass speaker for the new Concept E models measures an imposing 250 mm, and produces the round, sonorous output of this master of bass. No wonder – the lower limit frequency is a fabulous 36 Hz (at -3 dB). Many other home cinema woofers will pale in comparison! The bass reflex calibration together with the generously dimensioned casing contributes to the successful overall impression.
The Concept E 200 SW is only available as part of a Concept E 200 set.

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.

Empty the ring, folks: with good speakers the game is all inside the ears. And from all sides. 14 loudspeaker systems, ranging from 40 to 450 euro in our test. And in the 5.1 system with decoder the Concept E 200 Digital from Teufel decisively took all the points. It delivers a good sound quality and doesn’t show any weaknesses.
The Teufel set comes with an excellent remote control and a separate Dolby Digital decoder. That makes possible the direct connection of the loudspeakers with the Xbox 360 game console and Playstation 3. The sound playback is equally as homogeneous: room-free sound with the best details. And that at high volumes too, with enormous bass and deep bass dynamics.
• Best sound playback in the test
• Very high volume levels without distortion
• Dolby Digital decoder
• Wireless remote control
"Teufel is a new company to the UK, but it's certainly looking to make a name for itself with products like the Concept E-200. This 5.1 speaker system really looks the business. All the speakers sport a tough matt black plastic finish, with a more eye-catching glossy black finish on the front of the central unit. The 200W subwoofer and amplifier is a large and heavy beast, though the five 100W satellite speakers are pleasantly compact and discreet.
The latter can be wall-mounted too, to help minimise on desktop clutter. The front of the subwoofer sports three controls, enabling you to tweak the overall volume, the bass and put the speakers into standby mode (a standard power switch is located on the rear.)
With a maximum output of 300W across six channels, the E-200 isn't lacking in raw power. The subwoofer puts a weighty thump behind games, intense movies and music, while the satellite speakers pack ini more punch than you'd expect given their size."
"Overall sound quality was very crisp, and certainly left us nothing to complain about. If you're in the market for a capable 5.1 speaker system, then the Concept E-200 warrants consideration."
"The Teufel Decoderstation 5 is a real multitalent, which now can be connected to many different sound devices, such as their DVD player, iPod or their PC. With the remote control, your film evening on the couch will be super easy and the preferences are easy to take care of with the Teufel system, regardless the situation. The worksmanship and material is excellent, which doesn't surprise us coming from Teufel."
• Many different connection possibilities
• Wonderful visuals (matches the Concept E series)
• Remote control

Grade: GOOD (1,8)
Sound Dolby Pro Logic II: CD "Dream Dance Vol. 50, CD 1": what a step ahead – acoustically this combination of the Decoderstation 5 and Concept E 300 in comparison to the older Decoderstation 3 and the Concept E Magnum Digital are hardly in the same ball park. The January, 2008 tested products were still cheaper, but the in-total 448 euro for the brand-new Teufel combination is an excellent investment. With Paffendorfs "Self Control" the attractive subwoofer really impresses. All power amplifiers are located in its housing, which gives pleasure during performance and a surprising depth. With increased volumes the Concept E 400 remains sovereign and provides a precise, room-filling sound with excellent differences between vocal and instrumental elements. The subwoofer not only delivers tremendous sound pressure – as shows with "I kissed a Girl" or "Real Booty Babes" – but is quick on the uptake and immediately implements bass impulses. In each individual you get amazing results in an astoundingly constructive way. The bass is hefty and quick, the highs and midranges are homogeneous and played forward without-error.
Well thought-out, optically gorgeous, strong sound – this price-conscious combination of the Concept E 300 and the Decoderstation 5 is for beginners or old hands that need an inexpensive second solution…for example, playing PC multimedia files…a perfect choice. Volume level strength is excellent for such a system. The connection possibilities fort he Decoderstation 5 are also something to praise as well as its balanced and clean worksmanship. This is our summary: you'll hardly find more sound, quality and equipment for 450 euro anywhere else around.
• Astoundingly dynamic sound
• Excellently harmonic sound picture
• For the performance area excellent volume control
• Subwoofer with nimble speed and a good volume
• Decoderstation 5 with impeccable ports
• Good finish to all components

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.
The higher the level, the sooner the subwoofer restarts.
Bass should be set to 1/4 (at the "9:00 position" on the dial).
If you want to hook up multiple source devices to your Teufel set, we recommend that you purchase a Decoderstation 5.
If the interference continues, try using a shorter high-end shielded and insulated RCA connector cable.
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.
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.
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.
