Overview of our technologies
The Cinebar 11 hits all the right notes with a slender, elegant design and powerful sound. Just 8 cm high, the Cinebar along with its handy wireless subwoofer won’t get in the way of your living room interior. Instead, the system places the emphasis where it belongs: The sound.
The Cinebar 11 is equipped with Bluetooth for effortlessly streaming high-quality music from smartphones, tablets and PCs. An HDMI input and output make it possible to easily connect the sound system to your TV. HDMI ARC support means a single HDMI cable is all you’ll need. HDMI CEC makes it possible to control the system with your existing TV remote. Alternately, the audio signal can be fed to the system via optical or analog input.
The subwoofer is controlled wirelessly. Audio transmission is lossless and without delays. You only need one cable connection.
There is a tuner and bass reflex tube on the underside of the device. The bass reflex system allows for deep, strong bass even from such compact dimensions.

"Those who value elegant, unusual design and good workmanship are well served with the Cinebar 11 from Teufel. Every critic will be won over by the tonal quality and devilishly good sound. Whether within one’s own four walls, for a party or for home cinema: The soundbar does the job.”

"The system can digest stereo, Dolby Digital and DTS signals. The surround mode ensures a good 3-dimensional sound image and transports the viewer into the events of the movie. When it comes to the sound, the compact soundbar can deliver a big performance. The mid and treble ranges play very cleanly and dynamically even at raised levels. In this way, not only movie soundtracks but also music in stereo is a true pleasure with the Cinebar.”
"All the while, the performance in the bass range is impressive. The subwoofer does its job well. It doesn’t just push out the bass deeply and loudly but also with precision into the living room.”
"The Teufel Cinebar 11 comes with a full-fledged soundbar. Together with a complete feature set, all necessary connections and – above all – the mature sound, the price / performance ratio is positively sensational. Connections and controls are child’s play and thanks to the wireless subwoofer, the amount of work required to cable the system is minimal.”

"[After turning on the TV], the Teufel Cinebar 11 turned itself on in really a fraction of a second.“
"The sound was played back very clearly and distinctly. The subwoofer does its job well and unexcitedly in the background.“
"All-in-all the Teufel Cinebar 11 has a very balanced and pleasant sound. The surround function is supposed to create a “virtual surround” effect from a 2.1 system. The result when this function has been activated is truly astonishing. The sound seems much more dimensional and appears to truly be coming from different directions.”
Teufel Cinebar 11 Conclusion
"[T]he Teufel Cinebar 11 is a well executed system for the simple and space-saving improvement of television sound. Ease of use and a balanced sound make this set’s performance a success […]. Above all, the clear and precise vocal playback is to be commended. The Bluetooth interface with NFC synchronization is a cool and really easy to use extra that enhances the overall positive impression.”
To read the entire test review (in German):
"Aside from stero sound, the Teufel device also masters surround sound simulation. […] The loudspeakers have a very balanced and clean sound – far better than television audio. The forward radiating dispersion also enhances speach intelligibility. The maximum volume is considerable. The soundbar is also well suited for larger rooms and for listening to music. This it can receive via Buetooth - from smartphones, for example.“
"Great sound from a slender loudspeaker bar: For 300 Euro, the Cinebar 11 is hard to beat.“
"[...T]he Teufel solution [employs] four sensible methods: Eight loudspeaker drivers, a display plus two HDMI connections [...] enable this inexpensive system to make a big impact. The typically Teufel, solidly constructed active subwoofer is connected wirelessly.“
2Even the details are right: The developers placed the AUX input for [...] mobile players in an easy-to-reach position next to the control buttons located on the top.”
"Voices [...] come across clearly and with little colouration. In addition, the system offers an imposing low range that offers substance and clarity in equal measure. [...] Music recordings in stereo evinced a proper dynamism [...]. Compared to the two channel playback of other soundbars, the Cinebar has a pleasantly large soundstage and fine, lively highs. The voice playback also earns it praise. “
"The sub receives bass signals wirelessly from the Cinebar and can be positioned either horizontally or vertically. The integrated amplifier supplies it with 60 watts.”
"The Teufel is remarkably easy to use. The remote features a button for all important functions including source selection [...]. The surround mode creates a good, 3-dimensional sound image and transports the viewer into the action. In terms of sound, the compact soundbar knows how to deliver. The mid and upper ranges play very cleanly and dynamically, even at higher levels. In this way, not only are movie soundtracks fun, but music in stereo is a real enjoyment with the Cinebar. The performance in the bass range is impressive. The subwoofer does its job very well and pushed the bass [...] into the living room with precision.“
"With a complete set of features, all the necessary connections and – above all – a full sound, the price/performance ratio is really sensationally good. Connecting and controlling the system is child’s play. Thanks to the wireless subwoofer, the work involved in connecting the cables is minimal.”
"Setting up the system is quickly and easily accomplished […]. And it’s at least as easy to wirelessly connect the soundbar to a smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth […]. Along with an optical input, […] a 3.5 mm stereo input is at one’s disposal. In addition, the Cinebar offers an HDMI input and output.”
"The Cinebar is at home with […] film sound […] and offers […] a very pleasant sound image. The Cinebar is able to fill the soundstage it creates regardless of genre, […]. If there are atmospheric effects, then one hears them with the Cinebar.”
"[T]he Cinebar [can] really perform, especially when it's a matter of rendering large dynamic differences […]. Not only is the separate subwoofer to be praised, but above all the collaboration between the soundbar and the subwoofer.”
"The soundbar’s clarity and ability to differentiate, even with very dynamic acoustic material, is very strong. [T]he virtual surround sound [was] very convincing […]. The Cinebar was able to preserve these positive qualities at even louder volumes.“
[T]he Cinebar 11 […] completely won us over with its clear sound supported by a wireless subwoofer that makes it a successful and above all a very affordable alternative for living rooms in which there is not enough space for a larger system.

This soundbar scores points [...] with an attractive look: A perforated metal grille [...] protects from damage; Thanks to a matte black surface, finger prints and reflections from the screen are prevented. It becomes apparent how little space the soundbar takes up when it is set [...] upon a surface. Wall-mount brackets and recesses for connections allow it to be hung on a wall. The controls benefit from a light coloured display that can be switched off if needed.
During the listening test, the Teufel surprised us – unusual for such a small transducer [...]. The bass reflex sub plays [...] cleanly and with a lot of pressure. The 30 Hertz bass delivered effortless playback which lent the overall sound a fullness and maturity. The soundbar reproduced the mids and the highs transparenty and without colouration. The device is characterized by a broad dispersion from top to bottom, while the mids become increasingly softer as one moves to either side of the centerless soundbar. The optional surround mode can expand the stereo panorama [...]
For a low price, Teufel delivers big sound that takes up relatively little space with the Cinebar 11. Since both the feature set and workmanship were top, we’re categorizing it as a price recommendation.

[...] With height of just 5.4 cm, the soundbar is very flat. It can be easily placed under a televsion without obscuring the picture. If needed, home cinema fans can also fix the soundbar to the wall using the integrated brackets. [...]
Of all the features, the HDMI interface is worth mentioning. [...] The soundbar also has an optical digital input at its disposal and an analogue 3.5 mm stereo socket. Those who dislike cables will enjoy the wireless connection to source devices via Bluetooth and NFC.
Along with the soundbar, an active subwoofer is included with delivery. This blends in seamlessly with the Cinebar 11’s design. A pairing button on the back allows the bass driver to be easily and wirelessly connected to the soundbar.
Components and sound
The Cinebar 11’s sealed enclosure conceals two tweeters […]. In combination with six midrange drivers, […] the loudspeaker brings forth a sound that thoroughly won us over. This is a considerable achievement especially considering the compact measurements. The dimensionality of the sound in particular leaves nothing to be desired and just about compares with a full-sized surround sound system. Dialogue sounds clear and is easy to understand. The separation of voices and other effects occurs seamlessly. Even subtle effects are perceived as such. Inside the active subwoofer is a bass driver with a 165 mm diameter. The subwoofer harmonizes with the soundbar and ensures a powerful and full-sounding bass. […]
[…] The loudspeaker brings forth an outstanding sound and, thanks to a subtle design, the soundbar can be easily integrated into every living room. The Cinebar 11 is the perfect choice for home cinema fans with very little space and leaves nothing to be desired.

Along with a HDMI socket with audio feedback channel, Teufel – like its competitor Panasonic - provides an additional HDMI input for a Blu-ray player or game console. Optical and coaxial connection options are also available. As an additional feature, there’s a Bluetooth interface as well as virtual surround. As we have come to expect from Teufel, no audio cables are included with delivery, but it did come with a practical wall mount. In terms of sound quality, the Cinebar impressed us the most out of all the test devices.
In spite of a relatively small size, the subwoofer delivered the most powerful and dynamic bass performance of all. A room filling stereo image with crystal clear highs and a all-around balanced character completes the excellent listening impression. You can, by the way, do without the surround effects here as well.”
Plus points: Slender design / high-quality workmanship / impressive, powerful soundstage / also suitable for music
The connection possibilities are comprised of an HDMI input, an HDMI output, an optical digital input, a 3.5 mm analogue stereo jack input and, as a wireless option, Bluetooth with NFC. The Cinebar 11 has a very pleasant appearance. Teufel opted out of the high-gloss look in favour of a matte synthetic. The front drivers are positioned behind precisely fitted metal grilles and enhanced with a chrome ring – a nice detail that immediately increases the perceived value of the workmanship.
The active subwoofer is wirelessly connected [...] 90 watts is given as the subwoofer channel’s maximum power capacity. The continuous power capacity is 60 watts. The bass driver can produce frequencies from 42 t0 200 Hz and operates according to a bass reflex principle.”
"Acoustically, it’s, of course, not so easy to pull the maximum from a very compact enclosure. We’re therefore eager to see whether Teufel managed to achieve a rich, lively sound. We listened to the Blu-ray disc “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” starting with the second chapter. The gigantic hangar door opens with a powerful drone. The active subwoofer does a very good job here and ensures a respectable volume.
Ideally, the room should measure about 12 by 20 square metres. The Cinebar 11 unfurls an astonishingly rich and intense sound in this room size, and higher levels are no problem. The musical score was well integrated; the collaboration between the subwoofer and the soundbar is perfectly executed. The sound seems full, but is at the same time precise and dynamic.
When the movie really heats up [...], the Cinebar 11 comes into its own: The punches and gun shots are penetrating, the vehicle sounds and crashes are not only impressive, they reach the listener with clearly differentiated levels. Due to the broad horizontal dispersion angle, it’s no problem to include a number of listeners in the enjoyment of the Cinebar 11’s sound quality.
The virtual surround sound function is a success. It creates a large addition of realistic dimensionality, without damping the tone or making it sound tinny. Spatial widths as well as depth are considerably – and successfully – enhanced.
The Bluetooth connection is easily established even when NFC is not used. One simply presses the “BT Pairing” button on the remote and the Cinebar 11 is ready to connect. If a smartphone is Bluetooth enabled, it takes less than 30 seconds for the connection to be established.
"Late bloomer: Teufel’s first flat soundbar comes onto the market just in time for the Christmas season. Good workmanship, a reasonable price, and equipped with all the modern, in-demand features, the Cinebar 11 set is doubtlessly a good deal. The sound evinces clarity, powerful bass, and dimensionality.
Like a ‘Berlin hip flask’: Chic, fully loaded, and powerful - the Cinebar 11 plays into the hearts of consumers.”
