By pros, for pros

We wouldn't be Teufel if we hadn't developed one of the strongest soundbars ever. It is ideal for providing superior quality sound for cinematic highlights, outstanding music reproduction or epic party playlists.

Passion for sound

You can't get more sound per metre than this. The Cinebar Pro offers maximum sound power.

Side-firing speakers
Dynamore Ultra technology enables virtual surround sound. Speakers are built into the left and right sides of the soundbar.
Aluminium body
Gives the product a high-quality feel and even better acoustic properties.
6 power amps
Each channel has its own output amplifier. Class-D technology ensures high efficiency and dynamics with very low noise levels.
Double mid-range drivers
There are two mid-range drivers installed on each side. These ensure the best speech intelligibility and create warm mid-tones for music reproduction.
Teufel Soundbar Cinebar Pro
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Longer hub
All drivers can perform especially long strokes, i.e. the movement of the diaphragm is particularly large. This results in comparatively high levels with very low distortion.
2-way system
For particularly clear sound and natural mid-tones. Every driver works in the optimal field of action.
Bass reflex system
Brings the cut-off frequency even further down, so there is no break in the frequency response when tones are transitioned to the subwoofer. The subwoofer does not have to play so high and can therefore be positioned relatively freely in the room.
Made in Berlin

The Cinebar Pro was also designed and developed here in Berlin by our engineers.

Cinebar Pro review of HiFi Vision
Cinebar Pro review of HiFi Vision
"Compromises not needed!"
HiFi Vision 50/2018
"Powerful and extremely, dynamic, yet wonderfully controlled and precise in its reproduction. The Cinebar Pro gives you the feeling of being a full stereo system. Even at volumes suitable parties, the Cinebar Pro remains very clear and never appears strained... Thanks to Dynamore Ultra technology, it boasts a wonderfully wide stereo field that extends far beyond the physical limits of the sound bar and provides excellent spatiality, especially for films.

For a full-scale home entertainment package, it doesn't always have to be the biggest and most expensive on the market. On the contrary, Teufel shows with their new Cinebar Pro that the compact soundbar meets the mark. The pronounced sound characteristics in combination with thought-out features were optimally combined in a small space. Truly, incomparable!" (Translated from German).

"...Everything for the perfect sound."
www.computerbild.de 13.11.2018
"Whoever said that sound bars were slim and space-saving? The Teufel Cinebar Pro proves the opposite, but for all the right reasons! "Thanks to an almost perfectly balanced sound, the Teufel Cinebar Pro is perfectly suited for audio playback. It reproduces voices presently and very natural and always remain clean. The subwoofer and the Cinebar fitted very well together. It could not be heard as a separate speaker, but contributed unnoticeable ultra-deep bass. And the surround sound? At maximum dynamic range, it seemed extremely large and spacious, but there were no obvious locatable effects. At the medium level the sound was more natural and precise. Purists, however, switch back to stereo and enjoy the more natural timbres." Translated from German “

"a thoroughly successful entertainment package for the living room"
Heimkino 10-11/2018
"What Teufel's flagship soundbar delivers here has nothing in common with the sound of a typical soundbar. Powerful and extremely dynamic, yet wonderfully controlled and precise in its reproduction, the Cinebar Pro gives you the feeling of being a fully-fledged stereo system. [...] The subwoofer plays down to the low bass around 40 Hz with impressive authority and blends in perfectly with the crisp sound of the soundbar. Thanks to the Dynamore Ultra technology, it boasts a wonderfully wide stereo field that extends far beyond the physical limits of the soundbar and ensures very good three-dimensionality, especially for films."

"Teufel shows with the Cinebar Pro in an impressive way that a soundbar does not have to be a compromise. In a very small space, it combines outstanding sound characteristics with a multitude of sensibly implemented features and thus offers everything that makes a thoroughly successful entertainment package for the living room at home."

"Wow - what a sound!
AV-Magazin 18.08.2018
"The new Cinebar Pro is packed with the finest technology. [...] In addition to the promising sound quality, Teufel has equipped its new top soundbar with innovative features. For example, Google Chromecast, Bluetooth music streaming and Teufel's Dynamore surround sound technology are on board."

"Wow, what a sound! This thought will occur to everyone who listens to the Cinebar Pro for the first time. Thanks to the large subwoofer, basses sound incredibly powerful and full. [...] The depth is excellent."

"Teufels XXL soundbar passes the AV Magazin test with flying colours. The sound is incredibly broad, detailed and dynamic. [...] Operating and connection options leave nothing to be desired [...]. Ultimately, it is the extraordinary all-round qualities that make the Cinebar Pro an unqualified purchase recommendation for music and film sound."

Help regarding this product
I want to save a Chromecast stream on the direct selection keys (not applicable to all devices). How can I do this?
For technical reasons, it is not possible to store Chromecast streams on the direct selection keys.
One advantage of streaming with Chromecast is that you can continue to use your usual music app. How can I check if my apps already support Chromecast?
Chromecast built-in already supports 100+ apps, including many popular music services, and works with the Chrome browser. You’ll find an exact overview of all Cast-enabled apps here:

https://www.google.com/intl/en_us/chromecast/built-in/apps/

Tip: If you didn’t find your app on this list, you may want to contact the provider directly and ask when Chromecast will be integrated. In the meantime, you should have no trouble finding an alternative from the large selection of Chromecast-enabled apps.
Ich habe eine eigene Sammlung von Musik mit hoher Qualität und möchte diese über eine Chromecast unterstützende Musik-App abspielen. Wieso werden mir die Titel nicht anzeigt?
Chromecast built-in can stream CD-quality audio up to 48 kHz. If your collection has a higher sampling rate, you can stream it via the Teufel Raumfeld App.
I also want to use Chromecast's multi-room function and stream to multiple speakers at the same time. How can I do this?
Multi-room streaming is also possible with Chromecast. To do this, create a grouping of speakers within the free Google Home app which you will need to install on your smart device. You can name created groups on the app.

After you create and name your groups, they will appear alongside individual Cast-enabled speakers in your music app.

Google Home App (Play Store)

App Store iOS
I use the Spotify app to stream to my speakers. I don't see any or not all of my Chromecast speakers under "Available devices". What could be the reason?
In order to stream with Chromecast built-in, you’ll need the most recent version of the Spotify App. We recommend updating your app and trying again. Please note that you will also require a Spotify premium account in order to stream to your speakers.
I like watching YouTube videos. Can I now use Chromecast to wirelessly output the sound of YouTube videos while watching them?
The wireless transmission of audio content from YouTube is possible with the following:

1: A computer running on either the Windows 10/8.1/8/7 32 bit, Mac OS X 10.9 (or higher) or Linux operating systems.

2: A current version of the Chrome browser. You can download the most recent version here:
https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/desktop/

3: The Chromecast built-in extension for the Chrome browser (if not already integrated)

4: A least one Teufel Streaming device with Chromecast built-in registered to the same Wi-Fi network as the computer using the Chrome browser

Begin a YouTube video. Select the “streaming” option from the “more” menu in the Chrome browser. This will call up a menu displaying all Teufel Streaming devices in the network that can play back the audio.

Restrictions:
  • The video displayed on your screen and audio from your speaker may not be in perfect sync.
  • It is not currently possible to directly cast audio from the YouTube app for iOS or Android.

Tip for Android users: You can stream audio from the YouTube app on Android devices using the Android mirroring function. To do so, simply complete the following steps:

Step 1: Install the “Google Home App” and open the menu on the left side.

Step 2: Tap on the option “Screen/Audio streaming” and select the Teufel Streaming device you wish to cast audio to. An active connection will be displayed in your smartphone’s status bar.

Unfortunately, this option is not currently available for smart devices operating on iOS systems.

Step 3: Switch back to the YouTube App and start a video as you normally would. The audio will play from the Teufel Streaming device you just selected.

Please note that the picture and audio may not be in perfect sync.
Ich streame Musik direkt aus dem Chrome-Browser. Die Wiedergabe ist jedoch manchmal verzerrt oder setzt kurz aus. Was kann ich dagegen machen?
The most frequent cause of distortion and drops in playback is insufficiently fast data transfers from the PC to the WiFi speaker. Data transfer rates can be affected by the WiFi router and the internet connection. We recommend enhancing the performance by increasing the WiFi signal strength in the vicinity of your PC and speaker.
Ich verfüge über eine sehr große eigene Musiksammlung. Seit ich das Update mit Chromecast built-in durchgeführt habe, reagiert das System öfter nicht. Was kann ich dagegen unternehmen?
The processing of a large number of music files requires Teufel Streaming system resources. This is normal and comparable to a computer that has multiple programs running at the same time. For most music libraries, this does not pose a problem. For exceptionally large libraries, however, such as those in the terabyte range, the system might be strained to a point where normal streaming is compromised.

Solution: Restart all Teufel Streaming devices and deactivate Chromecast built-in.
Der Stream auf meine Teufel Streaming Geräte über Chromecast beginnt erst nach langer Wartezeit oder startet gar nicht. Woran kann das liegen?
There are many possible reasons why your music stream doesn’t start or only begins after a long delay. The following are the most common causes:

1) Chromecast built-in functionality can vary between providers. It’s therefore important to abide by the instructions given by the provider for using this technology. For instance, some request that users first cast and then start an audio stream while others recommend the reverse order of actions. If you are unsure whether you are casting correctly, please ask your app’s service team for assistance.

2) It can take around 20 seconds or even longer in some cases for a stream to be processed. Contact the provider of the music or audio service you use to learn more.
How can I tell if my Teufel Streaming/Raumfeld devices are compatible with Chromecast built-in?
Chromecast is supported by Teufel Streaming / Raumfeld devices which have a Raumfeld logo on the front panel and no external Wi-Fi antenna on the rear panel. Chromecast is also supported by the Raumfeld Soundbar / Sounddeck and the Teufel Sounddeck Streaming / Teufel Soundbar Streaming.
Wie kann ich das Chromecast built-in für aktivieren?
Chromecast built-in can be activated on your Teufel Streaming device once it has updated its firmware to version 1.60 and actualised the Teufel Raumfeld App (iOS/Android). The app will then automatically display the presence of Chromecast-enabled devices present in the network.

Manual activation can also be completed at any time in the Teufel Raumfeld App’s menu under “Music services”.
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.
My Bluetooth speaker produces a lesser quality sound with my Windows PC or laptop.
It could be that the speaker is connected as a device with speakerphone function. Please go to: settings menu > devices and printer > BOOMSTER (or other Bluetooth device). Right click on the device and remove the check mark next to the “speakerphone” option.
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.
My subwoofer is humming. What can I do?
This hum can be caused by the connected devices or disruptions in your electricity current. Please do a test to see which it is.

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.
Will an active subwoofer only run in 5.1 mode or also in stereo mode?
Thanks to the speaker set-up/bass management integrated in the home cinema receivers/amplifiers, the subwoofer functions in stereo, Dolby Surround and digital mode.

The corresponding setting in the speaker set-up must be adjusted individually for each source for many receivers, however, e.g. for CD playback only front without woofer, and front speakers plus woofer for Dolby Surround video playback.
Why doesn't my active subwoofer switch on automatically?
Some AV Receivers/amplifiers issue the bass signals via the subwoofer pre-amplifier output so quietly that the subwoofer does not start automatically.

To make sure the subwoofer switches on and off correctly in automatic mode, (to be selected on the corresponding switch of the subwoofer, such as "Auto / On / Off"), we recommend turning the level control on the subwoofer to 1/3 or perhaps to 1/2 and increasing the output level for the sub in the receiver's speaker set-up – sometimes up to the maximum (+10 dB or +12 dB). The subwoofer should then work perfectly.

The maximum position of the output level in the speaker set-up of the AV Receiver is obligatory for some of our models (e.g. the Concept S subwoofer).
How do I connect my fully active Teufel system to an AV Receiver?
Although designed to be fully active, the Teufel set is also partially active in conjunction with an AV Receiver.

You can connect it like a standard speaker system: the five satellites via speaker cable to the corresponding speaker outputs front R/L, rear R/L and centre of the AV Receiver/amplifier and the subwoofer from the front R input via a mono-RCA cable to the Sub Out output on the A/V Receiver/amplifier.

Please note:
The auto on/standby switch only responds when the front R input is being used! The subwoofer also receives the full subwoofer signal via this channel.

If the AV Receiver/amplifier has preamplifier outputs for all channels (front R/L, rear R/L, centre and subwoofer), the Teufel set can also be connected via three RCA cable pairs to the subwoofer and the satellites via speaker cables to the subwoofer. However, we recommend using the first version.
What is a ground hum?
The hum (50 Hz) comes from the 220 volt supply network and is caused by current power flows through the protective conductor. These so-called "ground hums" is caused when you connect two devices that are already grounded on the protective conductor (subwoofer) or the antennae cable (AV Receiver) to the subwoofer cable.

Solution:
Separate the direct connection by a grounding filter for the antennae cable that is created for it - for instance, the Teufel modell sheath current filter AC 9022 ED. Alternatively, you can use a galvanic separation filter that is looped into the connection between the subwoofer and AV Receiver.

The hum disappears if the antennae cable is separated from the Receiver/Tuner/TV. First try the grounding filter, otherwise the galvanic separation filter.
Where is the optimal place for the subwoofer of my Lautsprecher Teufel Surround System in a 5.1/6.1/7.1 configuration?
The location of a subwoofer with a recommended cut-off frequency of under/equal to 120 Hz can be freely selected and does not affect the other speakers.

Placement within the straight line between both front satellites is ideal - but not precisely in the corner of the room because certain frequency components could be unpleasantly excessive when played back.
How do I determine the right phase setting of the subwoofer?
By setting the phase, you can affect the point at which the membrane of the subwoofer bass speaker moves to the front. This setting makes it possible to optimally adjust the subwoofer to the satellites.

The membranes of the satellites should move to the front at the same time as the membrane of the subwoofer bass speaker, because all speakers of the system must vibrate in phase for optimal playback. This means that (provided the connection has the correct polarity) all drivers must move in one direction when the three front speakers receive a pulse (towards the outside or towards the inside).

If the subwoofer is in line with the front speakers, its bass speaker should have the same direction of movement (phase) - the controller on the woofer is set to "0". If the subwoofer is not between the front speakers, but is to the side of or even behind the listening location, its phase length will not match that of the front speakers. That is why the phase of the subwoofer must be changed in such cases.

So much for the theory. In practice, this means: Listen to a loud piece of music with heavy basses and ask a second person to change the phase during playback. The correct setting of the phase switch depends on where the subwoofer is positioned in the room. The position where the bass playback (above all the upper bass range) sounds the fullest is the correct position. Have fun trying it out!
What is the use of the on/off automatic switch ("Auto On/Off") of the active subwoofer?
The On/Off switch is a power-saving standby switch. The switch must be set to "On" or "1" to activate the standby. The subwoofer is activated as soon as it receives a strong bass signal. After approx. ten to twenty minutes of no signal, or only after receiving a very weak signal, it automatically switches to the standby function.

Even though the LED is still illuminated, the subwoofer is in standby mode. This function can be easily checked by slowly increasing the volume at the receiver/amplifier. You will hear a quiet popping noise when the subwoofer activates itself as of a certain level.
What happens to the power amplifiers of the subwoofer if I don't connect the satellites?
As soon as the satellites are connected to the subwoofer and not to the AV Receiver/amplifier, the performance of the 6 or 8-channel power amplifier is distributed to the subwoofer and to the satellites.

If the satellites are not connected directly to the subwoofer but to the AV Receiver/amplifier via speaker cable instead, the subwoofer performance will increase somewhat; the power amplifiers for the satellites have no function. This enables the subwoofer and satellites to play even more dynamically than if the subwoofer still had to provide the satellites with performance.

The technical background: The subwoofer has a large transformer with a specific wattage. This performance is either distributed to the five satellites and the subwoofer, or you receive a higher performance only for the subwoofer.
How can I connect an additional active subwoofer?
If your receiver has only one subwoofer output ("Sub Out"), you only need a monocinch cable, which is then connected from the receiver to the "Sub In" of the subwoofer. With two subwoofer outputs, you can order a so-called Y-adapter from the Teufel accessories page, which has a cinch plug on one side and two cinch (RCA) sockets on the other. Connect the plug to the subwoofer "Pre Out" on the AV receiver/amplifier and connect the mono cinch cable to the two subwoofers.

If the cabling method is easier for you, then you can alternatively connect one subwoofer to the other. You will need two mono cinch cables - one to connect the subwoofer "Pre Out" on the AV receiver/amplifier to the left line-in input of the first subwoofer, and the other to connect the left line-out output of the first subwoofer to the left line-in input of the second subwoofer.
What's the deal with the so-called bass traps or bass absorbers?
These are usually cubic wood housings (same MDF material as the speakers) with a bass reflex opening that have no membranes and are tuned to a certain frequency (e.g. 40 Hz as for a subwoofer). The frequency to be co-ordinated can be changed by the length and diametre of the bass reflex channel. If, for example, a room has a room resonance frequency of 28.3 Hz and this frequency is also played back in addition by a speaker/subwoofer, the room will begin to resonate at this frequency. This particular frequency is played back amplified.

This can be imagined as droning or booming, which occurs during heavy bass movie scenes such as explosions or certain types of music (Jazz, pizzicato bass). The bass absorber is then tuned exactly to this frequency so that only the speakers/subwoofer play back this frequency. The resonance frequency from the room, which would amplify this frequency, is swallowed by the bass absorber.

If you would like to damp more than one frequency (a room usually has three different frequencies: ceilings and floors, front and back and left and right, and its multiple), you will have to set up three absorbers accordingly.
How is the wattage of a subwoofer with respect to the sine wave and pulse/music performance?

The wattage (e.g. "360 W") printed on the rear of the subwoofer near the mains plug designates the ability of the power amplifier "to pull" a maximum power rating in the specified range at the moment of switching on (those 360 watt stated as an example).

Consequently, the wattage must correspond to at least the sine wave output of the amplifier, as this sine wave output must be permanently available which the power pack must provide as well.

The pulse/music performance of the amplifier, on the other hand, can exceed the wattage, because the short pulses are buffered additionally by the capacitors in the power pack and are not achieved solely through the performance of the power pack.

Multi-channel subwoofer:

The wattage for a multi-channel subwoofer can also be below the sine wave output, as the specified sine wave output is not requested from every channel at the same time.

For a 5 x 100 watt sinus power amplifier, for example, each of the five channels is able to implement 100 watt sine. However, not all five channels at the same time! This is also unnecessary, as the same signal is never transmitted across all five channels at the same time, thus requesting the same high sine wave output per channel.

That is why the wattage may be, e.g. 300 watt, even if the sine wave output exhibits 5 x 100 watt (= 500 watt).
What are the volume switches for?
The sound of the speaker always depends on the room where it is located.

The volume of the active subwoofer can be controlled so that you can adapt the relationship between the active bass and treble / mid tones to suit the room.

Use your own senses to judge which settings sound best in your room. This switch is especially useful in stereo mode. On the other hand, multichannel amplifiers often have technologies that adjust the subwoofer volume - so when using a multichannel amplifier the controller should first be set at 0dB.
Which subwoofer cables does Teufel recommend?
Dans la mesure où dans un ensemble home cinéma les caissons de basses actifs sont connectés à la sortie Out du caisson de basses du récepteur AV, un câble supplémentaire pour la connexion des enceintes satellites est nécessaire. Pour les caissons de basses actifs nous proposons deux versions de câble mono RCA NF allant de 2,5m jusque 5m. Du reste, un adaptateur Y est également disponible dans nos accessoires. Le modèle „ 2 x mâles 1 x femelle“ permet un usage complet des entrées Line-In RCA droit et gauche au caisson de basses. Ainsi, la puissance du caisson de basses s’en voit augmentée. Le modèle „1 x mâle 2 x femelles“ permet la connexion de deux caissons de basses. Une sortie caisson de basses Pre-Out du récepteur se trouve en sommes doublée.
What is room resonance frequency?
Room resonance frequency (other terms: room modes, standing waves, resonance frequency) is the frequency at which the vibrations of a voice, a musical instrument or a signal played back over the hi-fi/home cinema system is amplified unnaturally, because the vibrations build up between the walls as well as the floor and ceiling.

It is calculated of the sound velocity divided by 2 and divided by the room length [ 340 m/s: 2 : 6 m = 28.3 Hz (=1/s) ] or, more simply: 170 divided by the room dimension (length, width or height). The greatest distance between two parallel walls is taken as first standard value. For a room of 4 x 6 metres, this would be 6 metres. Strictly speaking, you would have to calculate the room resonance frequency for further parallel walls (for the 4 metres and for the ceiling height).

Overlaying resonances are also possible if the room dimensions are very close to each other. (2.8 metres high, 3 metres wide and 5.6 metres long). The resonance at 2.8 metres is repeated as multiple (times 2) at 5.6 metres length, the resonance of the 3 metres width is close to the resonance of 2.8 metres. It would resonate strongly here at 30 Hz, 56 Hz, 60 Hz and 120/112 Hz.

Phenomena of resonance frequencies:

• For example, a man with a deep voice speaks in a very small room (2 by 2 metres, 85 Hz). The voice appears to have more emphasis than in another room or out of doors. As soon as a woman speaks, the voice will sound just the same as in another room.

• The voice of a woman or that of a small child will cause glass to shatter. The voice strikes exactly the tone that corresponds to the resonant frequency of the glass. The glass resonates so strongly that it shatters (refer to the movie "The Tin Drum").

• A group of soldiers march across a bridge in cadence. The equal movement causes the bridge to vibrate so much that it collapses. That is why no one marches across bridges in cadence.
