Sonic Emotion™ Absolute 3D technology
Sonic Emotion™ Absolute 3D is a technology originally developed for professional audio that uses patented software and a DSP unit to create an extremely enveloping surround sound with exceptional spatial depth. Unlike other technologies, Sonic Emotion™ Absolute 3D doesn’t simply employ psychoacoustics to create the illusion of surround sound, it optimises a speaker's drivers so that they produce an authentically enveloping sound throughout the entire room, no matter where you sit.

Sonic Emotion

The highlights of Sonic Emotion™ Absolute 3D

  • Best reproduction properties independent of the listening position in the room
  • Precise sound localisation even when the speaker installation is not optimal
  • Very high, distortion-free levels with maximum speech intelligibility
  • Deep, high-precision bass for a crisp reproduction even without an external subwoofer

Advantages compared to similar 5.1 systems

The Cinebase offers an excellent alternative to other cumbersome 5.1 units. The Cinebase puts an end to annoying cable clutter - the device only requires one HDMI cable to be connected to the TV set and is then immediately ready to use.

Cinebase
① Standard 5.1 system

A 5.1 system with six separate speakers at the same price as the Cinebase may only offer optimal sound quality in certain spaces where all sound events can be precisely located, if the installation is not optimal and the room acoustics are unfavourable.

② With Sonic Emotion 3D

Sonic Emotion 3D technology enables a very broad, spacious sound stage through the skillful simultaneous and delayed control of a total of six drivers in a cinematic environment. An optimal sound quality, and thus a good location of sound events, is achieved at several points in the room.

Easy installation

Connect the Cinebase to your televsision with an HDMI cable, plug it in and voila: your home cinema sound system is up and running! You won’t need to worry about additional devices like an amplifier, A/V receiver or subwoofer.

Place the Cinebase on a low- or highboard, put your television on top of it and you’re done. The Cinebase doesn't even need to be positioned centrally relative to the listener/viewer and requires no additional subwoofer. Made from sound optimising and extremely robust MDF wood, it can easily handle the weight of even heavier televisions.

Wireless music playback with Bluetooth

Bluetooth 4.0 with aptX codec enables the wireless transmission of audio files free from unwanted interference. You’ll enjoy clear, CD-quality playback. Simply activate Bluetooth and all of the audio files stored on your smarphone, tablet, PC or Mac can be played back effortlessly on the Cinebase. Bluetooth can also be used to stream audio from Spotify, YouTube, iTunes, Facebook, Apps, games, etc.

Two jet subwoofers for powerful Teufel sound

The Cinebase is the most powerful sound deck on the market. Four full-range front-firing drivers with tremendous lift capability ensure high, distortion-free levels and rich, full sound reproduction even at low volumes. Two full-range drivers mounted on either side produce a very wide stereo sound stage with outstanding spatial depth as with full-size floorstanding speakers.

Two extra large 130 mm woofers using Teufel's proprietary Air Stream Bass Technology make an external subwoofer superfluous. Together, they create enthralling deep bass playback powerful enough to endow action movies with an edge-of-your-seat thrill factor.

An integrated Class-D amplifier with 257 Watts maximum power output generates extremely low-noise dynamic playback.

hifitest.de 16.12.2014
"The Cinebase from Teufel is an excellent sounddeck with an impressive sound that brings real depth to typical flatscreen TVs. And the Cinebase does this without forming a “sweet spot” in the middle of the listening position, but rather allows all the listeners in the room to enjoy a realistic and truly all-around sound.  Along with good workmanship, Teufel once again proves its mettle with good features and simple controls. This is how true benchmarks in the price segment are set.”

Cinebase review of HiFi Vision
"[O]ne has to take one’s hat off before such an acoustic film experience.”
HiFi Vision 52/2014
"Sonic Emotion Absolute 3D is a technology from the professional audio sector that steers the six fullrange drivers in front and sides on the Cinebase in such a way that a 3-dimensional sonic impression is created. The depths and even the highs in the soundstage are utterly impressive.”

Conclusion
"Teufel’s Cinebase helps those with a flatscreen television and equally flat sound achieve a compelling sound with authentic bass action. It impresses with exceptional wave field synthesis and six fullrange drivers as well as a realistic surround sound! If one considers this along with the accustomed level of good workmanship and features, the spectacular price and the truly simple controls, then one has to take one’s hat off before such an acoustic film experience.”

“[The] Teufel Cinebase [sounds] exceptionally neutral and lively. The differentiated playback of voices and excellent speech intelligibility are accompanied by a truly large spatial impression. The bass is powerfully deployed at the right moments but, to the delight of tester, was not droning.”

Cinebase review of www.lite-magazin.de
"Treble, bass, midrange, spatial effects – our test model earned the top score in all of these disciplines."
www.lite-magazin.de 25.03.2015
"Reviewing the Cinebase was a lot of fun from the word go. After all, the well-equipped Teufel loudspeaker offers plenty of possibilities for it.”

"In the test, all three sound variations were absolutely convincing. […] the Cinebase reveals itself to be prepared for every eventuality and the sonic material in all three of the options reveal themselves to be balanced and room-filling, whereby one of the thick sound carpets pushes itself into the listening position – an effect that one really only gets in good cinemas.”

"Treble, bass, midrange, spatial effects – our test model earned the top score in all of these disciplines. But what about volume levels? The Berlin all-in-one set earned just about a perfect score here as well and remained in charge of the situation at all times, even at volume levels above normal listening levels. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm whether this is also the case for the absolute maximum volume as we did not reach these levels in our test out of consideration for our neighbors and our own ears. This says more about the sounddeck’s power and less about the sensitivity of our ears!”

Conclusion
"[One] can expect to feel sheer joy with this diabolical acoustic wonder. This is in no way an exaggeration. With the Cinebase, Teufel invites one to experience completely new sonic details with TV sound.  But the Berlin sonic flounder doesn’t just earn top marks in the representation of details and balance – the room sound effects already described completely won over the test jury. The all-in-one package is rounded out by a Bluetooth function that practically makes classic stereo systems redundant. […] We have little more to say at this point than: Hats off!“

“The Teufel Cinebase’s virtual surround sound is very good. The individual components can be easily localized in the room no matter whether background music, dialogue and effects are being played.”

“The sounddeck produces a powerful sound. The mids and highs are dispersed from the loudspeaker with clarity and good detail.  We were above all impressed by the system’s agility. Two integrated subwoofers ensure a massive bass that holds its own against even external subwoofers.”

Conclusion:

“Those who aren’t satisfied with their television sound but don’t want to fill their living rooms with loudspeakers won’t get past the Cinebase. The soundbase has a winning combination of excellent workmanship and a multitude of connection possibilities. The sound quality is equally beyond reproach.

"Teufel Audio has every right to claim to have enhanced the highly competitive consumer electronics market with a [...] premium product.”
Audio Test 01/2015
"The Cinebase is no feature-loaded lifestyle product. On the contrary, it's minimalistically and inconspiculously designed; yet one immediately recognizes the standard of premium workmanship and functionality. There’s no superficial control elements, no display and yet a multitude of connection possibilities on offer. From HDMI to an optical digital input to an analog cinch, everything is at hand.”

"[T]he Cinebase was really able to win us over […] with its Sonic Emotion technology. In the stereo mode, the sound opened up in its overall breadth to such an extent that we could close our eyes and imagine floorstanding speakers to the left and right of us.”

Cinebase review of HDTV Magazin
"The Cinebase delivers exactly that which its name promises: Cinematic feeling without any big installation work.”
HDTV Magazin 01/2015
"In the listening test, Teufel’s Cinebar showed what it’s made of and reproduced content powerfully and forcefully. There was a good foundation in the bass range. While it didn’t venture into the furthest depths, it was very well defined for a soundbase. Especially growling bass benefits from the distortion-free playback and bass drums are endowed with a noticeable punch.”

"The middle range was strongly represented which could be especially appreciated when it came to speech intelligibility.“

"In the treble range, the sounddeck cut a thoroughly good figure, producing sibilants as well as cymbals clearly and with good contours, ensuring a brilliant soundstage without a trace of excess application.”

"The Cinebase delivers exactly that which its name promises: Cinematic feeling without any big installation work.”

Cinebase review of i-fidelity.net
"Overall, the Cinebase impresses with its exceptional workmanship, extraordinarily simple setup and controls, preprogrammed setup and voluminous sound."
i-fidelity.net 24.11.2014
"The flabby three transforms into a high-powered eight cylinder, blasts out the sound in a big way from the start and keeps it going whenever the action heats up on the screen. [...] Without changing anything in the basic settings or activating the surround sound function, the Cinebase elevates the sound quality from the premier leagues to the Bundesliga.”

"But it gets even better, or one could say 'bassier.‘ The champions’ league sends its greetings. For this, one need only raise the bass level with a remote by increments. One can actually feel how both of the 130 mm jet engine subwoofers get started – how they growl and almost turn a bit evil. The result is an impressive punch, an orchestra in which the guy on the timpani is in top form and it really starts to rumble in the lower range.”


"The Cinebase’s power reserves were more than adequately demonstrated. This means that there was no danger of the volume regulator ever approaching the maximum. This meant that the sounddeck was able to master the situation at all times. All-in-all the tonal depth was very good. It gave one on the sofa in front of the television the impression that there were more speakers distributed around the room."

Conclusion
"The devil isn’t always in the details. It can recently be found in a soundbar and you can see it and, above all, hear it. [T]his investment easily tripples [...] the movie fun in one’s own living room. A clean spatial sound and rich bass without a separate subwoofer – what more can one ask for? In addition, the sounddeck is also a new companion for your smartphone or tablet thanks to Bluetooth. Overall, the Cinebase impresses with its exceptional workmanship, extraordinarily simple setup and controls, preprogrammed setup and voluminous sound. We wouldn’t be surprised if demanding home cinema fans started making pacts with the devil.”

"That Teufel can make great loudspeakers is generally known. What is especially impressive with this sounddeck is the advanced digital technology [...]."
video-Magazin 12/2014
"In this XXL bass reflex enclosure with over 11.3 liters of total volume, the developers employed six broadband drivers made from coated cellulose as well as two 13 cm downfire bass woofers on the bottom fashioned from the same material.”

"That Teufel can make great loudspeakers is generally known. What is especially impressive with this sounddeck is the advanced digital technology [...]."

"The Teufel-deck decodes Dolby Digital as well as DTS and has the surround sound technology Dolby Virtual Speaker at its disposal. In addition, a 6.1 channel amplifier is not to be taken for granted among sounddecks designed as 2.1 systems. Then there’s the Bluetooth connectivity via Near Field Communication (NFC) that works as well in practice as in theory and sounds really good. On top of this are two HDMI connections including Audio Rear Channel (ARC) for television sound. Thus equipped, Teufel’s Cinebase sounds markedly neutral and lively. Along with the differentiated reproduction of voices and excellent voice intelligibility is added a truly good and large spatial impression.”

"Sonic Emotion 3D ensures a large soundstage that can be switched between three stages. The DSP enables the direct selection of sound presets via remote for stereo playback, speech and loudness [...].“

Conclusion:
"[N]atural, lively sound, great features, perfect Bluetooth streaming via NFC connection."

Widescreen 12/2014
"The look of the Cinebase is classic black and restrained without any conspicuous accents or noticeably shiny surfaces. In this way, it can be seamlessly added to a home cinema setup.“

"In terms of connectivity, the CInebase proves itself to be well equipped. It stands poised with all standard connection possibilities for source devices.”

"Teufel doesn’t [...] rely on software engineered 3D effects, but rather included two drivers on the sides of the Cinebase. Thanks to this side angle, soundtracks radiate off the walls. The resulting reflections ensure the desired 3D effect.”

"The sonic palette is generally pleasing thanks its full, powerful sound which shows an impressive 3-dimensionality.“

Cinebase review of Audiovision
"The sounddeck delivers powerful bass starting at about 45 Hertz along with a rich foundational tone and truly balanced midrange."
Audiovision 11/2014
“Two 7 centimeter drivers are arranged next to each other to on either side of the front. On both of the sides and angled towards the front, an additional broadrange driver is positioned. Two 13 cm downfire drivers power the bass which is supported by a bass reflex port. In terms of signal processing, “Absolute 3D" from Sonic Emotion in addition to Dolby’s “Virtual Speaker“ are the DSPs responsible. "

"We began the listening test with a news show. The sounddeck won us over in the front listening position, especially after switching on the sonic sound optimizer: Free from droning, sonorous and without any exaggerated sibilance, the speaker was perfectly understandable.”

"More than speech, Sonic improves music: It divides it evenly, openly and broadly in the room, as one otherwise only expects from authentic stereo speakers. The sound is powerful and assertive. The sounddeck delivers powerful bass starting at about 45 Hertz along with a rich foundational tone and truly balanced midrange."

"[T]he Cinebase is the loudest of [the] sounddeck[s]  we tested. The specialty of the soundbase, however, is the action-packed film sound. When Hagrid in the fourth chapter of Harry Potter (part 1) comes through the door with a rich bass boom, the sound barely ranks behind that of a sub/sat combination. Even the broad stereo effect continues to amaze.”

AV Conclusion
"Teufel’s first sounddeck is a hit. It has a dynamic and 3-dimensional sound and makes most televisions sound like kitchen radios. For us, this was worth a Highlight commendation.”

"The Teufel Cinebase is an exceptional sounddeck that complements any flat screen television with a full sound with captivating bass action."
Heimkino 11-12/2014
“The bass and even the highs in the acoustic image are absolutely impressive. The Cinebase remains unfussy in terms of its placement in the room and relative to the listening position. As long as the loudspeakers are able to radiate freely, they create a fascinating surround experience. The 13 cm bass drivers integrated into the bottom of the Cinebase ensure a confident bass foundation with levels that can be separately regulated.“

"The Teufel Cinebase is an exceptional sounddeck that complements any flat screen television with a full sound with captivating bass action. The wave field synthesis across the six broadband drivers works exceptionally well. It creates not only a “sweet spot” in the middle of a central listening position but indulges all listeners in the room with a realistic sound from all sides. Together with top-quality workmanship, a good feature set and simple controls, the Cinebase redefines the standards for its price class and creates an acoustic film experience without equal."

"Thanks to its discreet look, the Cinebase seemlessly blends into your home cinema setup.“

"The surround technology Sonic Emotion 3D is a real Cinebase highlight.“

"In general, the sound palette made a very good impression with a full, powerful sound that, thanks to the surround technology, evinced a considerable 3-dimensionality. The rich bass lays down a stable foundation for which both subwoofers on the bottom of the device are responsible. […] The soundbase is also well suited for listening to music. Via NFC and Bluetooth, connectivity is child’s play [...].”

"Teufel’s Cinebase generally goes about its work [...] very well and ensures through the great surround modus a true cinema feeling in one’s own living room.”

Conclusion
"With the Cinebase, Teufel offers a great and uncomplicated possibility for improving film sound.  [...] Whoever’s looking for an all-in-one solution for film and music has come to the right place with the Cinebase.

"Whether with music or movie sound, in terms of extensivity, level stability, clarity or 3-dimensionality: The TV sound station from Berlin is the new optimum value"
Area DVD 09/2014
"Sonic Emotion Absolute 3D technology ensures [...] an exceptionally realistic impression of 3-dimensionality.“

"The device makes an especially high-end and solid impression.“

Sound

"The Cinebase creates a suprisingly multifaceteted, spatially rich sound image. [...] With all acoustic occurences it is simply astounding how powerful and agile this truly compact device operates in the bass range.  One would search in vain  [...] for an active subwoofer that is, of course, not present. [...] In addition, Teufel’s engineers took care to painstakingly tune the Cinebase.“

"The entire acoustic action is precisely structured, even at high levels that most other sounddecks and TV loudspeakers can’t even reach. [...] With substance, expressiveness, and dynamics, the male voices sounded clear and fresh. Female voices were worked into the whole with subtle nuances. The Cinebase works the sonic textures on a sound stage with a natural overall impression, as even the instruments in an orchestra don’t need to hide in regard to the quality of the treatment. Dynamic differences are very well expressed and the entire acoustic structure does not appear superficial but rather complete and rich.“

Conclusion

"Acoustically, it offers the best performance that we [...] can hope to expect from an active TV loudspeaker. Whether with music or movie sound, in terms of extensivity, level stability, clarity or 3-dimensionality: The TV sound station from Berlin is the new optimum value and puts the competition in its place. The highly solid enclosure, the exceptional and integrated Sonic [Emotion] operating system and the high-performance amplifier guarantee great success. Even the 599 euro price won’t stand in the way of success, because it's absolutely fair for this performance.”

"For just 500 Euros, one receives an extremely high-performance soundbase solution with a pleasantly powerful and brilliant sound."
av magazin 09/2014

Teufel Cinebase: Well equipped


Those looking to improve the bad sound quality of their flat screen televisions will find an especially promising compact audio solution with Teufel. AV Magazin took a closer look at the Cinebase sound deck.

The newest product among TV sound solutions was practically born of necessity. The modest sound quality of modern televisions required an acoustic solution that takes up as little space in the living room as possible and yet offers decent sound quality. In this way, one-piece loudspeakers, also called sound decks or soundbases, came into being. The flat construction allows users to place the television directly on the loudspeaker so that only a negligible amount of space is used in the living room. An additional advantage of a sound deck is that all of the technology necessary for audio playback is built into the device. In this way, the soundbase includes the drivers, an amplifier including the control electronics as well as digital and analogue audio connections. Teufel’s Cinebase is available now in black for 499.99 plus shipping directly at Teufel. The purchase is ideally made via the website www.teufel.de. With an eight week right of exchange and return, the Berlin loudspeaker experts offer an all-around fair deal. If the product does not find favor, one receives either an alternate product or a refund.

Setup


Thanks to a sturdy enclosure, the sound deck can accommodate televisions weighing up to 60 kilos. For added stability, seven stand feet ensure that the weight is optimally distributed. An opulently equipped connection panel that enables the easy connection of the Cinebase to existing electronic devices is located on the back. The television is best connected to the HDMI-TV interface. Additional playback devices can be accommodated with optical/digital or electrical/analogue audio connections. HDMI-enabled game consoles, Blu-ray players and an external TV receiver as well as hard disk recorders should be connected directly to the television. A compatible television can transmit the chosen A/V input directly per HDMI cable to the Cinebase via the so-called audio return channel (ARC). In this way, the new high-resolution surround sound formats from Dolby and DTS can be transmitted to the Cinebase in addition to standard stereo sound formats without data loss. The requirement for use of the ARC function is a television with an ARC-compatible HDMI connection and the connection of the soundbase to precisely this interface on the television.

Sound Quality


After we positioned the 50 centimeter test television safely and securely on top of the Cinebase, we started off by clicking through a few television programs. The extraordinarily broad and full sound from the sound deck immediately made a positive impression. Compared to watered-down television loudspeakers, the Teufel soundbase reproduced the news, film dialogue, and music stations in their full frequency ranges. The sound is powerful and dynamic and has a pleasantly high degree of expressiveness and good agility. An even larger improvement was predictably noticed with a movie on Blu-ray. The action classic “Batman: The Dark Knight” had an incredibly detailed and brilliant sound on the Teufel sound deck. After activating the 3D surround sound mode, the special sound effects seemed to originate from the entire front part of the room. The stereo panorama was noticeably broader and won us over with a high-impact spatial depth. But the Teufel soundbase also gives a completely convincing performance with music. Sades’ cuddly soft voice was reproduced with perfect tonal harmony, while the bass gave proof to its acoustic abilities with a kick and impressive sound pressure levels.
   
With the new Cinebase, Teufel shows who’s boss when it comes to soundbases. For just 500 Euros, one receives an extremely high-performance soundbase solution with a pleasantly powerful and brilliant sound. That the Cinebase can also wirelessly receive music via Bluetooth and offers an extensive range of connections makes it a true AV Magazin Highlight.

Help regarding this product
My Cinebase has Sonic Emotion® technology for different sound settings. How and when can I use these settings?
The integrated Sonic Emotion® technology in your Cinebase can create virtual surround sound around the whole room. This impressive, room-filling sound remains constant even when you move around or listen from different positions. To ensure that you get the full effect of Sonic Emotion® technology, make sure that there are no large objects or other barriers blocking your Cinebase.

The following Sonic Emotion® effects are available:

*SONIC 1 – Stereo surround sound: This effect creates a virtual, panoramic soundscape.

*SONIC 2 – Language: This creates a uniform sound around the room, with emphasis on speech frequencies.

*SONIC 3 – Volume: Gives fuller, more powerful sound even at low volumes.

These sound effects can be selected with the “SONIC” buttons on the remote control. Press “SONIC OFF” to turn them off.
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.
