Overview of our technologies
An enormously powerful, dynamic THX set in a compact, space-saving design. As a THX home cinema trail blazer, Teufel mastered the technology of creating cinema quality sound in a range of easily integrated designs. We most recently pioneered the adaptation of this demanding standard to the elegant and versatile soundbar.
Surround yourself with sound, not speakers
The Cinebar 51 THX is more than an upgrade for your flatscreen sound – it takes you into the depths of a true cinema experience with the hassle free set-up and elegant look of a soundbar.
It doesn't matter whether you're watching a Blu-ray action movie, a drama with a lot of dialogue on DVD, a live concert on CD, or the latest dance tracks from a USB flash drive - the Cinebar 51 THX delivers breathtaking bass and goosebump-inducing sound with fantastic power reserves. Whatever the sound source, the result is a guaranteed adrenaline rush.
An enormous power output of 350 watts delivers more than enough sound for rooms up to 35 square meters; and thanks to Dolby Virtual Speaker technology, you’ll experience a rich and powerful dimensionality that will send your guests looking for where the other speakers are hidden.
All THX certified speaker bars fulfil the highest standards for audio construction so you know you’re getting the best technology out there. Our Cinebar 51 THX features two aluminium tweeters with 25 mm drivers and a total of four 100 mm midrange/bass drivers with very robust yet lightweight coated cellulose membranes capable of translating power from the efficient class D amplifier into high-impact, clear sound.

You can't expect real surround sound, but there's no comparable quality model in this price range. The Cinebar 51 convinces in terms of sound quality in all disciplines, most especially with the strong bass and clear centre, but also powerful reserves for such a small compact system. For rooms up to 25 sqm you can't go wrong.
In terms of connectivity, everything you need is on board: two digital and one analogue input, although there is no HDMI connection. The small remote containing all important features works somewhat hesitantly; yet when the film “The Dark Knight” plays in the wide mode, the soundbar radiates a broad cinematic sound image, has authentic dimensionality, level stability, and good bass and speech intelligibility. Even stereo sound profits from the wide mode which gives music a more balanced sound.”

The speakers are the key differentiator in a Raumfeld system. Rather than building the wireless technology into a discrete amplifier or streaming module as Sonos does, Raumfeld builds it all directly into one of the speakers, along with a 30W per channel amplifier. The other speaker is passive, powered by the amp via a single length of standard speaker cable.
All you need to complete the picture is the Raumfeld Base, and the Controller - an angular slab of plastic complete with 4.25in, 280 x 476 capacitive touchscreen - and you have yourself a beautifully minimalist system. The design is pure Bauhaus and looks stunning."

So far, the Sonos system has offered one of the easiest plug n play solutions to the problem, and now little-known German manufacturer Raumfeld is muscling in on the act at a similar price point.
The Raumfeld system consists of a Base station, which you connect to your PC or wireless router via Ethernet cable, a pair of Wi-Fi-enhanced active stereo speakers and a Controller with touch-sensitive screen. It can stream audio directly from your PC or Nas drive, access web-based streaming services and play internet radio too, either through the Raumfeld speakers or through your existing stereo via the Wi-Fi Connector.
So far, so Sonos, but the Raumfeld system has an extra trick up its sleeve by including a hefty 160GB hard drive in the Base. You can use it to back up your favourite tracks so you don't have to switch on your computer to access your music."
"The Raumfeld system is a hassle-free wireless streaming solution whose only real rival at the moment is Sonos. Neither system is particularly cheap, and while the Raumfeld is the more expensive option, you do get the benefit of an onboard hard drive which allows you to use it without having to switch on your computer. It's horses for courses, but the Raumfeld is a serious rival to the Sonos and an excellent way to open up your computer-based music collection."
Verdict: 9 / 10

The receiver/amplifier must have bass management where the frequencies are distributed for the THX front/centre speakers and the THX subwoofer (cut-off frequency 80 Hz).
Also, the amplifier should exhibit a minimum rating of 100 watt per channel and match the speakers for performance (amplifier sine wave output = approx. long-term load of speaker).
Since THX speakers are optimised to play back multi-channel signals (4 or 5.1 channels), the front speakers permit the precisely staggered and very true to detail spatial playback, while the surround speakers ensure realistic room characteristics.
Both are also ideal requirements for playing back music.
The objective of THX home cinema systems is to play back film soundtracks with as much authenticity and quality as the original mix from the sound studio.
In all studios used for film dubbing, the soundtracks are mixed in a 4-channel version (Dolby Surround) and in a 5.1 channel version. The acoustics, equalizer settings and speaker configurations are absolutely identical.
THX systems are thus always able to play back soundtracks produced in this way absolutely true to the original. Because of the high technical and tonal requirements, the THX standard can be compared with the TÜV (German Technical Control Board) for cinema sound.
As opposed to the THX quality standard, DTS and Dolby Digital are procedures for compressing sound data.
All THX-licensed devices and speakers must demonstrate certain technical properties so that they can play back movie soundtracks produced for cinemas and correspondingly powerful cinema sound systems absolutely true to the original for home cinemas as well. This is only possible up to a certain point with conventional hi-fi systems.
The most important requirements for excellent home cinema sound are:
• That despite the considerable size difference between cinemas and home cinemas, the movie soundtrack can be played back in comparably smaller rooms with the correct tonal balance and three-dimensionality.
• That all sound channels are played back very precisely despite the complexity of a multi-channel soundtrack to be able to precisely locate and allocate all noises and voices.
• That the subwoofer is perfectly coupled to the main speakers.
• That the front speakers are (by sound) identical - indispensable for harmonious sound playback.
THX systems satisfy these requirements perfectly, as they consider all running processes concerning playback while the movie soundtrack is being mixed.
THX currently differentiates three standards for speakers: THX Ultra 2, THX Select and THX Multimedia.
THX Select 2 only applies to AV Receivers/amplifiers.
THX Ultra 2 corresponds to the earlier THX with the uncompromising design of the components.
Comparison of the three THX standards:
• THX Ultra 2: Angle of radiation and frequency response strictly limited requirement, D'Appolito arrangement of speaker systems prescribed.
• THX Select: More generous specifications for angle of radiation and frequency response.
• THX Multimedia: Radiation behaviour corresponds to THX Select.
• THX Ultra 2: Dipoles are compulsory.
• THX Select: Dipoles recommended, but not compulsory.
• THX Multimedia: Direct emitters in every respect.
Subwoofer - transfer frequency
• THX Ultra 2: 80 Hz
• THX Select: 100 Hz
• THX Multimedia: 130 Hz
• THX Ultra: Continuous load 105 dB (front) / 102 dB (surround).
• THX Select: Short term load 105 dB (front) / 102 dB (surround).
• THX Multimedia: 103 dB at the listening location/desk at approx. 50 cm distance.
• THX Ultra 2:
More output performance than normal AV Receivers. Complies with the strictest requirements for minor background noise and minor distortion. Is designed for performance needs of large listening rooms up to 150 m².
• THX Select:
Structure of AV Receiver is simpler and thus more reasonably priced. Less performance required, therefore suitable for smaller and medium-sized listening rooms up to approx. 50 m².
• THX Multimedia:
Pure PC and/or multimedia speakers for use at the computer.
• THX Ultra 2: Arrangement and set-up strictly regulated.
• THX Select: Set-up and arrangement simpler and more flexible.
• THX Multimedia: Set-up of front speakers on the desk, rear speakers to the side and behind where you are sitting.
The first DVD that supported the new feature was "Fight Club" in the Special Edition by 20th Century Fox (NTSC version). The offer has been continually expanded in the meantime.
The tests, which can be played on NTSC as well as PAL DVDs, consist of video tests that are helpful in optimally setting and configuring the TV or video projector, as well as audio tests that guarantee that the sound system is configured perfectly.
The special thing about these tests is the fact that the measuring signals are identical to the reference signals that were used during the final mixing of the relevant DVD. The home cinema system can therefore be co-ordinated accurately and individually to every single DVD with THX Optimode.
The goal of the entire procedure is that the sound and particularly the picture should appear in the home cinema exactly as the producer imagined. Let's assume the film producer wanted to create a certain mood in the film using specific colouring; this only works in the home cinema if the screen at home is just as co-ordinated as in the studio. Thanks to THX Optimode, that is guaranteed as far as possible.
Operating THX Optimode is just as easy: The software on the DVD includes all of the tests. Individually, these are video tests to set the contrast, brightness, colour, colouring, control of the correct ratio of picture length to picture width and the possibility to test the general qualities of the monitor.
In addition, there are audio tests for the phases of the speakers, connection of the speakers and the cut-off frequency of the LFE (subwoofer channel). Some tests will clearly show when it is necessary to consult a specialist for the settings.
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.
Please note that when reinstalling the firmware all device settings are lost.
Here you will find advice on reinstalling the firmware of the following devices:
Reinstalling the firmware in our online manual
USB storage devices that are connected to another Raumfeld device than the host can not be integrated as music resources.Please also note that apart from USB sticks, first-generation Speakers, Ones or Connectors support usb hard disks with their own power supply only. This constraint does not apply to second-generation devices, e.g. Connector 2.
USB storage devices with the following formats are supported:
- FAT16 / FAT32
- HFS / HFS +
- EXT2 / EXT 3 / EXT 4
Sharing of the iTunes music and playlists on a network share
Your iTunes music and playlists remain on your computer and Raumfeld accesses the files via the network. Please note that they are only available if the computer is turned on.
Alternative methods for systems with a Raumfeld Base:
Copying of iTunes music and playlists onto the Raumfeld Base
Your iTunes music and playlists correspond to the status in iTunes at the time of copying onto the Raumfeld Base. However, you have the option to copy the data again at a later time in order to thereby update it.
Use of the Raumfeld Base as the iTunes Media folder location
Your music library is centrally stored on the Raumfeld Base and iTunes accesses it via the network. Provided that your computer is connected to the home network you will feel no difference to using your iTunes with a locally-stored media library. This method is therefore particularly suitable for desktop computers. Find out more: https://manual.teufel.de/en/online-manual-music-resources.html
Teufel Streaming is easy to use, thanks to the development by usability experts and constant consultation with users. Whatever function you want to use you will always reach your goal within a few steps.
Teufel Streaming is complete. Teufel Streaming is a complete multi-room audio system. Third party devices (speaker, data storage, computers) are not necessary in order to use Teufel Streaming.
Compatible playlist formats: WPL, M3U, PLS, iTunes playlists
Please note that there may be structural bottlenecks in the Wi-Fi transmission of lossless formats. If your music library consists mainly of very large FLAC, Apple Lossless or WAV files, we recommend connecting your Teufel Streaming host device via network cable or using the optional Raumfeld Expand.
*Currently only WMA files encoded with the regular WMA codec are supported. WMA Lossless, WMA Pro and WMA Voice are not supported.
- Embed the artwork within the music file
- Save the artwork in the album's folder
Embedding the artwork in the music file
Most media players and special "tagging" applications can be used to embed album artwork in music files.
Saving the cover in the album's folder
If all tracks of an album are stored in their own folder you can simply move the artwork image file to that folder. The Teufel Streaming system will then associate the image file with the album.
Supported image formats, size and resolution
We recommend the usage of JPEG images (300x300 pixels, 72 dpi).
Of course, other image formats (PNG, GIF) and sizes are also supported.
Most MP3 players may additionally be connected to the Raumfeld Base via USB. Should your system not contain a Raumfeld Base you may connect the MP3 player via USB to your Speaker or Connector.
Please note: As the music library on iPods and iPhones is not directly accessible for third party manufacturers, iPods and iPhones can only be connected via their analogue audio output.
- Use your file management application to navigate to the folder that contains the playlists file (.wpl, .m3u, .pls oder iTunes Music Library.xml). It doesn't matter if it is stored on the Raumfeld Base, USB storage or a network share.
- Delete the playlist file
If the playlist file was stored on a network share, you have to manually initiate a rescan of the network share in order to see the changes in Playlists > Imported. Find out more: https://manual.teufel.de/en/online-manual-scanning-of-music-resources.html.
