Overview of our technologies
Cinebar® 50 improves your TVs sound quality dramatically. There's more, though. This fully fledged sound system supports the Dolby Virtual Speaker technology and can be used for DVD, Blu-ray, satellite/premiere/DVB-T-decoder playback, in stereo and spatial sound.
Modern flat screen televisions have plenty of advantages. Sound quality, however, isn't often one of them. Enter the Cinebar® 50, an elegant and complete solution which will outclass any flat screen's flimsy factory sound. Enjoy improved dialog renditions, dynamics, higher volume, and spatial acoustics surround sound.
Spatial sound from a single speaker
You'll be astonished when you hear the Cinebar® 50's virtual spatiality. That's because the system features the Dolby virtual speaker technology developed over years of meticulous research and development. It processes sound signals in a very special way, distributing them over the built-in speaker chassis. The resulting sound nearly replicates standard five-speaker surround sound.
Cinebar® 50 is an ensemble. It's the simplest way to upgrade your flat-screen's sound without having to assemble an entire loudspeaker system in your living room. Power reserves of 350-watts RMS make this one of the highest-performing systems of this class available today. Save space and skip the hassle without compromising sound quality. Teufel makes it possible.

Loudspeaker, decoder, preamplifier, and power amp.
The Cinebar 50 unit is equipped with two tweeters, two mid-range drivers, and two low-mid-range drivers that act as a two-and-a-half-way configuration. Together with an integrated amplifier, this speaker system provides 200 watts RMS power.
Two digital (optical/coaxial) and two analogue inputs, plus a USB port located on the front of the speaker for MP3 or WMA formats, await four source devices and sound files.
Cinebar 50’s decoder component processes Dolby Digital and dts signals originating from incoming digital input devices. This decoder element converts the signal into the proper format for playbac on this stereo device, using Dolby Virtual speaker technology to generate a virtual surround-sound effect. Three different playback modes are available:
Stereo – Wide – Reference.
The ergonomic remote control allows you to easily access the most important control functions. The current settings status can be easily read off the sound bar panel.
The Cinebar 50 module comes with two brackets located at the back of the speaker which can be used to mount the speaker directly to the wall. A table stand for placing it to TV furniture is included in the shipment.

If you're unfamiliar with the soundbar concept, here's the low-down – the Cinebar 50 combines speakers, surround sound decoders, a preamplifier and a 200W power amplifier into a single unit, which makes it possible to mount the entire system on the wall below your TV or perch it on your AV rack. The general consensus is that TV speaker sound quality is pretty crap, so soundbars are a great way of upgrading sound quality without committing to full 5.1.
Having tested a number of Teufel's speaker systems, it comes as no surprise that the main unit is impeccably built. It's long and slender but surprisingly heavy, and the seductive gloss-black finish is likely to make your mates' jaws drop open like a nest of hungry baby birds. Peeking through the front speaker mesh are two mid-range drivers, two low-midrange drivers and two tweeters, dissected down the middle by a simple blue display panel, which shows whole words as opposed to one or two digits, plus a basic button arrangement that controls power, source and volume.
But here's the best part – bang in the middle is a USB port (complete with a rubber dust cover), which allows you to play your MP3/WMA files from flash drives (up to 8GB) and hard-disks (up to 160GB) without even having to connect a Blu-ray or DVD deck. On the back Teufel has attached a pair of incredibly strong wall-mounting brackets (which can be removed), and Teufel has thoughtfully included a set of angled socket adapters that allow connected cables to run downwards instead of sticking out awkwardly. In the box you’ll also find a base for the soundbar to sit in when placed on a stand.
On the back of the main unit are two pairs of analogue stereo inputs, optical and coaxial digital inputs and the subwoofer output, while the back of the sub sports a cinch input and a volume dial, but more complicated controls like crossover and phase are sensibly omitted. The Cinebar can decode Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks and features a stereo amplifier (2 x 100W), but to make the sound more movie-friendly Teufel has included Dolby Virtual Speaker to generate a virtual surround effect. It comes in three modes – Stereo, Wide and Reference – which can be selected using the Mode button on the remote. Joining Dolby Virtual Speaker is a range of EQ modes primarily for music playback, including Rock, Pop, Classic and Jazz, although for movies you're better off opting for the 'Flat' setting.
Unsurprisingly the system is a complete breeze to setup – place the components, plug them in, hook up the sub cable, done. [...] To test the Cinebar 50’s mettle we fired up that old home cinema stalwart Gladiator and it’s safe to say that the sound quality is among the best we’ve heard from a soundbar. [...]
What's most apparent is the Cinebar's ability to dig out detail and convey high-frequency effects in a clean and enjoyable manner, even when the volume is turned up to near maximum. This gives soundtracks an irresistible sharpness and dynamism that some soundbars struggle to muster. The opening battle scenes, for instance, are all clattering swords, swishing arrows and shouty soldiers, and through the Cinebar it makes for a gripping listen – the melee of effects are flung around the soundstage with satisfying directness and energy. Later on, it effortlessly teases out the gladiators' clinking armour as they prepare for battle.
There's also plenty of width – cut to the cheering crowds inside the coliseum and it certainly feels like you're being enveloped. We're also happy with the clarity of dialogue, which comes through cleanly no matter how action-packed the scene. [...]
The Cinebar is also a dab hand with music through the analogue stereo inputs, unearthing plenty of detail. Adele's 19 on CD sounds fantastic and her distinctive vocals are relayed with a pleasing tone.
The Cinebar 50 is an impressive soundbar debut from Teufel, offering the sort of sophistication we've come to expect from this company in terms of design and sound quality, without you having to pay an unreasonably high price for the privilege.
