Overview of our technologies

THX Certified
THX Speaker Bar
dts Digital Entertainment
The dream of every home cinema fan

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.

The soundbar is supported by an outstanding subwoofer with a 150 watt amplifier and a 250 mm bass driver. The use of THX Boundary Gain Compensation ensures that you perceive full, powerful, and precise bass no matter where you sit in the room.

The Cinebar 51 THX offers a wide range of connection possibilities including optical and coaxial digital inputs, two stereo cinch inputs as well as a USB port located directly beneath the display.

The Cinebar 51 THX has it all: power, THX certification, and an elegantly minimalist design.

"THX Inside"
Heimkino 05/2012
Everything on this set has been thought through, from A to Z. So this, the Cinebar 51 THX, delivers a gorgeous exterior, flexible usage possibilities, easy as pie handling and usage, and a powerful, amazing surround sound. It's only logical that this system would be the first in Europe to receive a THX certification for Speakerbar.

"Teufel's great THX sound"
SFT 06/2012
 The Teufel Cinebar 51 is the big sister to the Cinebar 21 (graded 1.7 A level by SFT). The new product is only slightly wider and higher than its cheaper predecessor, aside from the thicker subwoofer. But the Cinebar 51 brings more than double the power: a fantastic 100 watts per channel, and that with still compact dimensions - to get 150 watts from the bass.

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.

“The soundbar segment now has THX licensing and Teufel is the first to claim it. With it, the Berlin duo has achieved an impressive sound [In a comparison test of five soundbars]. This can especially be observed in action movies. A subwoofer with a 250 mm bass driver and 150 watt amplifier together with a soundbar containing four x 10 cm bass/midrange drivers and two aluminium tweeters deliver scintillating scenes. Dolby Virtual Speaker ensures great dimensionality as long as one has a central position in front of the Cinebar. The Boundary Gain Compensation (BGC) button helps listening positions closer to the wall avoid excess bass – a very practical feature.

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.”

"A similar concept to Sonos, but with B&O-inspired styling and a 160GB hard-driver Base unit to store your music. You can add a USB driver for more space. Raumfeld`S Base will wirelessy hook up to your computer`s music library and NAS server, too, along with Napster and Last.fm. There`s no iPhone app, but the Controller is a joy to use thanks to its intuitive touchscreen and reassuring rotary volume dial. You can choose to hook up a hi-fi to the system with an unobtrusive Connector, but it`s well worth investing in the great-sounding powered speakers, available in either kitchen-friendly or lounge-filling sizes."

What Hifi? 05/2010
"The neutrality and tonal balance on offer is impressive. Bass could perhaps be a little deeper, but it's taut and well-integrated with the midrange, while the treble is sparkly, but well behaved - as long you avoid overly sharp recordings... Then there's the Connector - its overall delivery will depend on your amp and speakers, but a test with our reference hi-fi proves that it's capable of conveying truly excellent detail and dynamics."

"Superb speakers offer proper hi-fi sound quality"
pcpro.co.uk 08/2010
"Sonos has had the high-end multiroom audio space to itself for the past few years, but now there's a new challenger in town: small German manufacturer, Raumfeld. Its wireless audio system tackles Sonos' expensive bundles head-on, but does it in a rather different way.
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."

"Raumfeld wireless multi-room audio system"
AV Review.co.uk 10/2010
"Seamless wireless audio is a great idea for spreading your music around your home. Much cheaper than an installation, and the ideal way to unlock the audio that's been building up on your computer's hard drive all these years.
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

Help regarding this product
Do I need a THX amplifier for the THX speakers?
Not necessarily!

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).
Are THX speakers suitable for listening to music?
Of course.

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.
Is THX compatible with Dolby Digital and DTS?
Absolutely!

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.
What is so special about a THX System?
THX systems are the ultimate home cinema components.

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.
What are the differences between THX Ultra 2, THX Select and THX Multimedia?
THX is a quality standard that guarantees the best possible playback for a specific room size. Since THX was originally developed for cinema theatres, the specifications apply to room sizes that far exceed the average living room size.

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:

Front speaker
• 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.

Surround speaker
• 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

Volume level

• 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.

Performance profile

• 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.

Speaker set-up

• 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.
How can I upgrade my THX system to a 7.1 sound format?
With the THX 7.1 amplifiers/receivers, there is always the option of connecting two rear centre speakers. We would also recommend using four rear speakers. Due to the elaborate development of our rear speakers, our models can be used very flexibly for any application. Here we have to differentiate as follows: - You have a THX Select/Ultra 2 device and want to connect two rear centre speakers: if you already use dipoles or direct radiators in your 5.1 system, you have the choice of adding either two more dipoles or two direct radiators as rear centres. For wall mounting and/or at a short distance from seat to rear wall (less than 1.00 m), we would recommend dipoles that are also operated in dipole mode (for System 4 THX, for example, order 2 x additional S 400 D). As soon as you want to place the speaker on stands or on a shelf, we would recommend direct radiators (for System 4 THX, e.g. order 2 x additional S 400 FCR). As soon as you already use direct radiators with your 5.1 system, we would recommend the same type of direct radiators for the upgrade. You have a THX Ultra 2 unit and want to connect two rear centres: a circuit especially developed for THX Ultra 2 devices allows you to use two more direct radiators or two more dipoles in addition to the dipoles used as rear effect loudspeakers.
What's behind THX Optimode?
THX Optimode is the latest development of the THX Digital Mastering Program consisting of a series of tests that enable every home cinema user to adjust his system exactly in picture and sound to the Optimode DVD currently in the DVD player.

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.
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.
Which cables do I need to connect a Teufel speaker set to the AV Receiver?
A home cinema system needs speaker cables to connect the satellite speakers to the receivers, and an NF mono RCA cable to connect the active subwoofer to the sub out socket of the AV Receiver.
What is the advantage of a THX certified soundbar?
The advantage lies in the heightened performance of the included components - that's why it's THX certified. It all works perfectly together - regardless if it's the amplifier performance, the room spatiality, or the speech intelligibility - with THX your sound experience is simply heightened.
How do I connect the Cinebar 51 to my flatscreen?
The connection is super easy - if your flatscreen has an optical or coaxial digital output, simply connect that to the Cinebar's digital input. Most TVs have an optical (most fall in this category) or coaxial (sometimes) digital output.
How do I connect the Cinebar's subwoofer?
This is where you use the mini RCA cable, connecting it to the subwoofer output on the back of the Cinebar to the RCA input on the subwoofer. This cable is included in the delivery oft he Cinebar 51 THX.
What does Dolby Virtual Speaker technology actually do?
The Dolby Virtual Speaker system is a virtual surround sound system that Dolby Laboratory in the USA has developed and patented. Algorithms and psychoacoustic effects create the effect of surround sound in the listening area. For playback of film sound, Dolby Virtual Surround is simply the best. There are two programs ("Reference" and "Wide") to expand your listening experience. For music playback we recommend to play the Cinebar 51 THX in a normal stereo mode.
Can the Cinebar 51 THX play music from USBs as well?
Yes, formats such as MP3, MP3 Pro and WMA can be played back in this system.
Why does the Cinebar 51 THX have no HDMI input?
The Cinebar 51 THX inputs data from the optical or coaxial digital inputs. This guarantees the highest audio quality and fantastic compatibility.
I have connected the Cinebar to my TV, but I don't hear any sound or the only sound coming out is from my flatscreen. Why is that?
It's not an automatic rule that every flatscreen automatically sends its sound to external speakers. Sometimes it's necessary to change the installation on your TV through its menu. To change your particular TV, please read through your operating instruction manual.
I have more than one Raumfeld device and would like to listen to Spotify in the multiroom mode. How does this work?
First check that you have a valid subscription for Spotify Premium. You will also need to have both the Raumfeld and Spotify apps installed on your smart device. Now, open the Raumfeld App and tap on the Spotify symbol under music services or on the home screen. Activate the multiroom mode for Spotify by sliding the switch to the “on” position. Once activated, you can select the rooms where you wish to stream music. These will appear in the Spotify App as Raumfeld Zones.
I want my Raumfeld speakers to use less energy when no stream is playing. Does Raumeld offer an automatic standby mode?
It’s possible to activate a standby mode with all Raumfeld speakers starting with generation 2. To activate this mode, go to the room settings in the app, then select the speaker you would like to configure and “automatically activate standby” from the dropdown menu. Here you will be able to activate “ON” or “Off.” The device’s energy usage in the standby mode will be even lower than the standards mandated by the EU.
Is it possible to reinstall the firmware of a Raumfeld device ("flashing")?
Should one of your Raumeld devices no longer react even after you've disconnected the power and restarted the device, you may reinstall the device's firmware and thereby reset it to factory defaults.

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:

Can I connect USB storage to the Raumfeld system?
Music that is stored on USB sticks or USB hard disks will be added to your Raumfeld music collection if the storage device is connected to the host of your Raumfeld system.In a system with a Raumfeld Base the Base is the host. In a system without a Raumfeld Base you may set the host device yourself under Settings > Network > Host Configuration.
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.

Supported Formats
USB storage devices with the following formats are supported:
  • FAT16 / FAT32
  • NTFS
  • HFS / HFS +
  • EXT2 / EXT 3 / EXT 4
In a few cases problems with USB 1.0 storage has been reported. We therefore suggest to use USB 2.0.
Can I use my iTunes library with Raumfeld?
You may use your iTunes music and playlists in the Raumfeld system. There are several alternatives to do this:

All systems:

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
Can I listen to the radio on my Raumfeld System?
Yes, via the online service "TuneIn".
Raumfeld offers an equalizer function but I can’t find it in the app. How can I access the equalizer?
The Raumfeld Equalizer has been given a different location within the app. You can now access the sound settings directly via the volume menu.
Does Raumfeld support gapless playback?
Since version 1.2 Raumfeld plays back music gaplessly. That means there is no audible pause between two titles what isn't included into the original recording.

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.
Which music file formats are supported by Raumfeld?
Supported audio formats: MP3, WAV, Flac, Ogg Vorbis, ASF, WMA*, M4A containing AAC or Apple Lossless
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.
Which speaker is on the left, which one on the right?
In order to allow you to position your speakers perfectly within your room, you can choose which of the two speakers you want to control with the left stereo signal, and which with the right. Find out more: https://manual.teufel.de/en/online-manual-setup-configuring-of-devices.html
How can I add album artwork to my music library?
There are different ways to add album artwork to your music library in order to see them on your Teufel Controller:
  • Embed the artwork within the music file
  • Save the artwork in the album's folder
Also, if your Teufel Streaming system is connected to the Internet, missing artwork will be added automatically (if they can be found on the online music service Last.fm).

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.
How can I connect a CD or MP3 player?
Raumfeld playback devices come with an analogue audio input (cinch) for connecting your CD or MP3 player, iPhones, iPods etc. The input signal may be played back directly via the connected Raumfeld device, or you may stream the signal to other rooms.

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.
How can I delete imported playlists?
In order to delete imported playlists from the music database you have to delete the corresponding playlist file on the music resource:
  • 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 your Raumfeld Base or an attached USB storage your music collection will be updated automatically within a few seconds. Hence, the playlist will no longer be displayed under Playlists > My Music.

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.
How can I import my existing playlists into the Raumfeld system?
The following playlist formats are imported into the Raumfeld system and displayed under Playlists > Imported:
  • iTunes Playlists (iTunes Music Library.xml)
  • Windows Playlists (*.wpl)
  • M3U Playlists (*.m3u)
  • PLS Playlists (*.pls)
In order to import your existing playlists into the Raumfeld system, simply save the corresponding playlist files on a USB storage device, a shared folder or the Raumfeld Base (see also music resources).
How synchronous is the playback of multiple players?
When only Raumfeld devices are grouped in a music zone, they offer perfect synchronisation (less than 5-millisecond phase displacement).  This means that you can use multiple speakers in one room without hearing an echo or hall effect.

Third party UPnP/AV internet radios that are operated with Raumfeld may have less than perfect synchronisation. When positioned in different rooms, however, there is still no echo to be heard.
How do I tag my music collection? Which tagging formats are supported?
To get relevant title information such as the artist or album name of a title, the media server uses the metadata - or tags - of your music files. So in order to browse your music collection by artist, album, or genre, the music files must be tagged accordingly. You can find out more about how to do so at: https://manual.teufel.de/en/faq.html?produkt=1913#faq9
What is the maximum number of rooms that can be filled with sound?
This strongly depends on the Wi-Fi performance. If you have three or more speakers, you should connect the host to your router using an Ethernet cable.
