Concept E Digital review of Area DVD
Concept E Digital review of Area DVD
"Three dimensionality, the bass foundation, clarity and homogeneity – all of this was offered at a level that would, so-to-say, make systems that cost twice as much weep.”
Area DVD 07/2014
"[...T]he Concept E Digital impresses [...] with its user friendly features. A Bluetooth receiver (with aptX support) is included so that nothing stands in the way of wireless streaming. [...]"

Sound

"Flight sounds, explosions and similarly loud effects are wonderfully executed by the powerful but relatively compact active subwoofer. [...] Police car sirens, the sound of Iron Man racing through the air, the noises surrounding the Avengers' special airplane – all these coalesce into a home cinema experience that one would not expect in this price class.”

"The Concept E Digital reproduces instruments very cleanly, and the subwoofer appropriately articulates itself into the overall tonal arrangement. […] The small satellites render surprisingly thorough playback […]“

"Right before the beginning, the countless electronic effects are given a lively presentation. […] The heavy use of bass does not present an insurmountable hurdle for the Conecpt E Digital – the bass is richly expressed with the required force.”

"We can balance out the equation as followings: The system was of course designed for demanding PC gamers, but its abilities are not nearly exhausted. The Concept E Digital will also get itself noticed as a full-fledged compact 5.1 system in the living room – which is markedly more impressive. […] Three dimensionality, the bass foundation, clarity and homogeneity – all of this was offered at a level that would, so-to-say, make systems that cost twice as much weep.”

Conclusion

"[T]he Teufel Concept E Digital offers exceptional value for the money. [...] With a truly cultivated but at the same time dynamic sound as well as good level stability, the Concept E Digital goes ist own way in even acoustic aspects [...]. Teufel [...] offers a flexible, good-sounding system with a nearly complete as well as user-friendly feature set."

Concept E Digital review of Konsolenfan
Concept E Digital review of Konsolenfan
"With the new Concept E, Teufel again offers a faultless system."
Konsolenfan 04/2014
"Thanks to the small size of its satellites, the Concept E is wonderfully suited for gamers who don’t have a lot of space or who use their consoles with an additional TV. […] The system performs […] exceptionally well. The satellites play with precision and every tone is brought forth with a richness of detail. The subwoofer underscore events on the screen with a controlled and pleasant but powerful bass. [W]ith the Concept E, an impressive and realistic atmosphere is created while playing video games.“

"The speakers are also good fun with music. […] All instruments are acoustically well separated from each other and voices can be clearly heard from the speakers, even at low volumes. The Teufel System delivers clean, detailed mids and highs with substantial bass.“

Conclusion:

"With the new Concept E, Teufel again offers a faultless system. The sound is very good for such small satellites whether with movies, music, or gaming. Everything comes across with dynamism and power. The subwoofer does an excellent job in the lower range without pushing itself to much into the foreground.”

"Aesthetically, the system is quite striking. The design is elegant, the workmanship impeccable. The large, white touch screen in the middle of the subwoofer is unusual as is the small remote control in the form of an ice hockey puck.”

Concept E Digital review of PC Games Hardware
"Those who expect a booming, bassy tuning will be surprised by the Concept E. The system plays with exceptional clarity and precision.“
PC Games Hardware 04/2014
"The time-honored Concept E […] finally has a successor.”

"Teufel obviously put some effort into modernizing so as to adapt the successor to the gaming community's new expectations.”

"Those who expect a booming, bassy tuning will be surprised by the Concept E. The system plays with exceptional clarity and precision.“

"Teufel was successful with the tuning. The crossover frequencies from the satellites to the subwoofer can only be discerned with a great deal of concentration. […] The good, clear tone is pleasant, even with music playback […].“

"When playing, its helpful to have a precise sound reproduction when trying to fix a position on opponents. The subwoofer underscores the events with powerful low tones without any negative effects from droning. […] Even movies are a lot of fun with the Concept E.“

"The Concept E’s design and workmanship are very well implemented. The satellites give a very solid impressive and the look is […] almost retro already without seeming at all old fashioned. […]“

Conclusion:

"Teufel did a good job with the modernized Concept E. The sound is very good, the connectivity […] has kept up with the times thanks to Bluetooth. The workmanship is excellent and the design pleasant. [T]he features, the very good sound, the high-quality workmanship and the sophisticated design form a successful total package that surround fans should take a closer look at.“

Concept E Digital review of SFT
Concept E Digital review of SFT
"More sound is simply not possible for so little money!"
SFT 04/2014
The latest edition of Teufel’s inexpensive surround sound set not only has a great sound, it’s also jam-packed with well thought-out features. [...] From SAT receivers to a game consoles, tablets, and notebooks, [...] a wide range of devices can be connected via analogue inputs. In addition, there are two digital inputs (optical, coaxial), a total of four analogue connections [...] as well as [...] a Bluetooth module interface. The Concept E can be connected to a desktop PC or notebook via a USB 2.0 port. The multitalented system functions as an external soundcard in this case. In this way, the Concept E is not only well suited for home cinema use, but also as a premium PC speaker system for an even more intense experience with your favourite games.
 
[...] The manufacturer had a clever solution when it comes to accessible and easy connectivity: Various settings can be intuitively adjusted from the front side of the subwoofer via a white LED touchpanel. Alternately, more frequently required functions [...] can be accessed from a comfortable puck remote. [...]

Easy setup, first-class sound

[...] Setting up the Concept E is child’s play: Connect it, turn it on, and enjoy. [...] With stereo or surround sound sources, the procedure is the same: You simply select the correct mode and the system takes care oft he rest. The powerful and yet highly nuanced sound image immediately draws in the listener. The muscular 500 watt subwoofer is especially impressive with its spot-on, commanding performance. The satellites produce clear and detailed sound and even render human speech that is wonderfully natural. In addition, the fantastic surround impression can hold its own against much more expensive systems. [...]

More sound is simply not possible for so little money!

Concept E Digital review of M! Games
Concept E Digital review of M! Games
"Great workmanship, even better sound. The Concept E is a devilishly good deal."
M! Games 03/2014
The Concept E is comprised of four identical satellite speakers, a large horizontal centre, and a downfire subwoofer that contains all of the connections, electronics, and amplifier. In terms of inputs, there are […] two digital connections […], a cinch stereo pair, three 3.5 mm jack sockets as well as a USB 2.0 interface that fuctions as a 5.1 soundcard for laptops, etc. Thanks to Bluetooth, wireless streaming with smartphones is possible. […] An integrated decoder makes the system compatible with Dolby Digital, ProLogic2, and DTS.

[T]he 450 Euro ensemble sounds bigger, more relaxed, and dynamic than its compact dimensions would lead one to suspect. In spite of using direct sound transducers, the acoustics are extensive but still push forward tonally. It’s also surprising that there is no frequency gap between the subwoofer and the only 15 cm tall satellite. The larger centre is able to bring voices across clearly during thunderous action scenes, even during high-volume film nights. The silky and distortion-free sound reproduction astounded us, and invites higher volumes. Another praiseworthy attribute: The successful 5.1 formatting from stereo signals. […]
 
Conclusion
Great workmanship, even better sound. The Concept E is a devilishly good deal.

Concept E Digital review of Allround-PC
Concept E Digital review of Allround-PC
"Teufel again managed to deliver an excellent sounding PC system!"
Allround-PC 02/2014
The Concept E is Teufel’s newest 5.1 system for PCs. Thanks to a multitude of connection possibilities, up to six devices can be connection at the same time – including Bluetooth devices. A USB connection makes 5.1 sound possible with laptops. Our test will reveal whether the system holds up acoustically, as well. [...]

The subwoofer is the central connection point on the Concept E [...] The biggest new feature is the touch panel. White LED lights display the various setting options. [...] On the back of the subwoofer are all the connection possibilities. [...] An additional feature is that the last input is invisible because it works without a cable: Thanks to a Bluetooth receiver, the Concept E can receive audio signals wirelessly.

Many settings can be adjusted via the included remote control in the form of an ice hockey puck. [...] Settings on the subwoofer can be quickly and easily discerned. The workmanship on the satellites and subwoofer is, as usual, very good.

Sound quality

For a PC system, the sound quality really won us over. The sound was even very good when transmitted via Bluetooth  [...] With Dolby Pro Logic II, the signal can even be distributed to all channels. Those who connect the system to a PC without a good sound card can make use of the USB port. This enables the enjoyment of 5.1 sound thanks to a soundcard integrated in the amplifier. The subwoofer goes to town with precision and depth – Teufel was always good at bass. [Satellites:] The highs were clear and the mids consistently present. The system evinced steady levels up to very high volumes and has to be played extremely loud in order to show signs of overload. Conclusion in regards to sound quality: Devilishly good!

Conclusion

Teufel again managed to deliver an excellent sounding PC system! An additional plus point is the many connection possibilities as well as the option to connect smartphones and tablets via Bluetooth. [...]

Concept E Digital review of CrowdedBrain
Concept E Digital review of CrowdedBrain
"Concept E speakers (despite their entry level status/price) were blessed with superb sound and build quality to match."
CrowdedBrain 02/2014
Unboxing the Concept E speakers [...] first involved removing the large active subwoofer from the first of two boxes. Upon removal it instantly felt heavy and this was a testimony to its build quality which was superb.

[...] The second box provides all of your satellite style speakers. Apart from the center speaker they are identical in size and again are similar to the sub in that they look stylish and have a weighty feel behind them (with ample build quality). [...]

The center speaker is slightly larger but it retains the same build quality as the four smaller satellites. However the center speaker does come with a handy stand with a rubberised base to prevent slippage on a hard surface. Note you also have a packet of self-adhesive rubber feet for the remaining speakers.

For what is essentially an entry level system, the speakers are a joy to setup! [...] After the speakers are connected you can then push the rear left and rear right buttons together to enable the test mode. This will then play white noise to each speaker to make sure they are working and positioned correctly.

You also have the ability to select a speaker icon on the panel to increase the volume that comes from each speaker. Thus if you want more volume coming from a certain speaker you can do so."

Help regarding this product
Do I also have a 6.1/7.1 playback for a 5.1 recording?
Usually, all 6.1/7.1 AV Receivers can generate a 6.1/7.1 playback from a 5.1 recording. The procedure is comparable with the Dolby Pro Logic Decoder, which generates a matrix circuit from the stereo signal of a centre channel.

The AV Receivers thus generate a rear centre channel from the rear R/L channels of a 5.1 recording through the matrix circuit. The stronger the rear R/L effects on the DVD, the stronger the signal from the rear centre.
Can I connect the LT 4 directly to a DVD player or PC?
No.

The LT 4 is a partially active system that requires AV receiver operation. It has a built-in amplifier that only supplies bass tones in the subwoofer housing That is why an "AV Receiver", i.e. a combination of radio receiver and multichannel amplifier, is essential for using the LT 4.

The subwoofer is connected from the Line In R input to the AV receiver's sub out jack using a mono RCA cable, while the three front satellites are connected to the three speaker outputs of the AV Receiver using the speaker cable and are supplied with power from there.

Connect signal-emitting source appliances such as DVD player or PC etc. directly to the corresponding input jacks on the AV Receiver.
When would it be worth upgrading my 5.1 system to 6.1/7.1 sound?
Naturally 5.1 channel systems that play back all of the sound tracks contained on the DVDs already offer an excellent home cinema experience.

For the new 6.1 or 7.1 sound formats, a rear centre channel is controlled in addition to these channels. This channel, coded in the stereo effect channels, enables the better positioning of effects and music signals directly behind where you are sitting.

If using two speakers for the rear centre channel, the optimal seating position is not tailored to an individually specified position, i.e. you don't have to be seated in the exact centre.

In the following cases we would recommend upgrading to a 6.1 or 7.1 system:

• Your sitting position is not always dead centre, or you often have several viewers

• You have had a 5.1 system for a very long time and would like an improvement

• Your AV amplifier/receiver is designed as a 6.1 or 7.1 receiver and offers the corresponding connection possibilities

• You can also set up one and/or two rear centres. If you are currently building/renovating your house or flat, we would recommend you lay the cables for the additional rear centre channels in any case.

• Modern BluRay players usually issue a true 7.1 surround sound signal at all digital outputs and are thus optimally suitable - presuming the relevant AV Receiver - as a signal transmitter for a 7.1 channel home cinema system.
How do I upgrade my system to a 6.1 or 7.1 sound format?
The choice of speaker(s) depends on the AV Receiver/amplifier. This has an additional power amplifier for one rear centre (6.1) or its two (7.1). You can easily see this by the wattage (e.g. 6 x 100 watt or 7 x 100 watt). To the existing (side) rear speakers for right/left (5.1 technology), one or two additional rear centres are utilised in addition (6.1 or 7.1 technology).

• My AV amplifier/receiver has six connections/power amplifiers (6.1):

In this case we recommend connecting the same centre at the rear that you also used in the front area.

• My AV amplifier/receiver has 7 connections/power amplifiers (7.1):

If you already use dipoles or direct emitters for your 5.1 system, then you have a choice of either supplementing two more dipoles or two direct emitters. For wall assembly and a short distance from the seating location to the rear wall (less than 1.00 metres), we would recommend dipoles. As soon as you want to set up the speakers on bases or on a shelf, then direct emitters would be the better choice.

Information:
Even if the AV Receiver/amplifier only has the connection and power amplifier performance for one rear centre, it is still possible to connect two instead of just one speaker through series connection.

Exception:
• The AV amplifier/receiver has seven connections/power amplifiers, but I can only set up one rear centre. As the 7.1 AV amplifiers/receiver also offer the option of operating just one of the two outputs (usually can be set in the speaker set-up!), you can also only connect just one rear centre.

Here we recommend connecting the same centre to the rear that you also used in the front area. For short distances to the listening location (less than 1.00 metres), a dipole would be the better choice - especially if you are also using dipoles at the sides.
Is it a problem if the speakers are at different distances to where you are sitting?
Since the distance and volume of every individual speaker can be adjusted for the digital home cinema receivers, asymmetrical set-ups can be easily compensated. 
How do I equalise my home cinema system with the help of a sound level meter?
Take the level meter with you to the listening position and point the measuring device directly towards the front centre speaker. Now start the sound generator of the receiver (or of the sound card or DVD player) and equalise all speakers in succession to the same level.

The position and alignment of the measuring device should not be changed during this procedure. For a Teufel sound level meter, proceed as detailed in the following:

1. Remove the protective tab from the battery.

2. Set the weighting to "A" - only the "A" position considers the full frequency range during measuring!

3. Set the response to Slow.

4. Set the Range to 70.

5. Start the test noise from your AV device.

6. Change the volume for every individual channel at the AV device so that the level meter shows 75 dB (meaning between +4 and +6).

7. Done!
What is the difference between the 5.1 and 7.1 configuration?
Compared with the 5.1 set, the 7.1 set has two extra speakers for the back rear centre channel.

The 5.1 channel set plays back all sound tracks on DVDs/Blu-rays and creates an excellent home cinema experience.

With the 7.1 sound format, a rear centre channel is also generated in addition to these channels and distributed to two further speakers (the "rear centre"). This channel, which is encoded in the stereo effects channels, allows better location of effects and music signals directly behind the sitting position.

If you use two speakers for the rear centre channel (i.e. installed 7.1 set), the optimum sitting position is not restricted to one specific place, so you don't have to be sitting exactly in the middle and several listeners can enjoy the best sound.
Where is the optimal place for the centre of my Lautsprecher Teufel Surround System in a 5.1/6.1/7.1 configuration?
Because the centre plays back spoken dialogue, this speaker must be positioned as centrally as possible under or over the TV/monitor or the screen.

If the centre is placed outside the area of 40 centimetres to 1.20 meter height, it should be slightly inclined or angled towards the listener.


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.
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.
When can I use the rear speakers as direct speakers?
If you aren't able to position the speakers close to the wall as described above, you should use the them as direct speakers. For this purpose the rear switch should be tipped outwards. For use as direct speakers, the rear boxes should be set up to the left and right of the listening position - ideally at the same height, e.g. on a shelf or preferably on a base. If the speakers have to be set up so that they are much higher or lower, it may be advisable to align them to the listening point. For wall mounting it is best to use wall brackets that allow for vertical movement. When using the speakers in direct speaker mode, we recommend that the distance between the two rear speakers exceeds the listening position by 1m. But if you (have to) sit closer, please make sure that the front of the speaker is not pointing directly at you; instead, angle the speakers more into the room.
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.
The satellites "hiss"
In principle the Concept F is a very low-noise system. In the high range area, very high-resolution quality speaker systems can 'expose' the defective quality of a signal source (e.g. from MP3 files or analogue cassette recordings) that is hardly noticeable on lower quality speakers.
You can check the basic noise level by connecting a signal, via a cinch cable, from an external source that is guaranteed to be good quality – such as a music CD e.g. on a portable CD player – to the Aux L/R input on the subwoofer. If all of the satellites are now playing noise-free, it is because they weren't receiving the right signal before. Either the cinch cable is defective (try swapping them around) or the output of your source appliance is not producing an adequate signal.

However, if you continue to hear increased noise on this channel there is possibly a fault in the Concept F. Please check which satellites are affected by changing the satellites around and to find out whether the satellite or the subwoofer electronics are producing excessive noise. If the fault "moves" with the satellite the satellite is the problem. On the other hand, if the hissing remains on the same channel, the subwoofer amplifier electronics are the cause.
How do I get 5.1 sound on a notebook?
For 5.1 reproduction you usually need an external sound card with six analogue outputs. Different companies offer solutions for connecting to the PCMCIA port or via USB or FireWire.

If your notebook already has three analogue mini-jack outputs, please read the answer to the above question "How do I connect the Motiv 5 to a PC/Mac?".
