Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of Fidelity
"Devices with similar qualities [...] can only be found in a higher price class."
Fidelity 26.01.2016
"With the Raumfeld Connector², the Berliners have a network audio player in their product portfolio […] that unites two worlds: The worlds of hi-fi systems and that of music from the internet.”

"Due to the use of a Cirrus Logic D/A converter chip, the quality of the analog output is very satisfactory. The bass that is delivered to the amplifier is rich and the treble thoroughly nuanced, the stereo image is detailed and is a lot of fun to listen to.”

"Raumfeld systems offer a well-executed introduction to the world of multi-room streaming. [T]he Berliners offer a good system that can be effortlessly extended and which can continue to be enjoyed in the future. Devices with similar qualities [...] can only be found in a higher price class. Ever the Raumfeld Connector²‘s sound is a winner."

"Its app is one of the most integrated I have seen, and offers tremendous flexibility at the price"
Hi-Fi Choice 05/2015
"Multi-room networked music systems are very much bang on trend right now, but German brand Raumfeld is the new kid on the block when it comes to UK audio fans"
The well-constructed unit enables existing hi-fi owners to access home networked music libraries found on computers, NAS drives and mobile devices."

" [...] the app, which is surprisingly intuitive to use and comes preloaded with access to Spotify Connect – so long as you have a Premium subscription – Napster, TuneIn and Last.fm streaming services. The app is nicely configured and easy to master with volume and EQ control for each room around the home should you decide to go down the multi-room path."

Sound quality

"Detail across the frequency range is impressively integral, and the soundstage has a good sense of left-to-right and front-to-back depth [...]"

"[...] the real pleasure of the Connector 2 is in its integration with Tidal’s streaming service, giving me access to its extensive catalogue of tracks [...]"

Conclusion

Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of The HB Project
Teufel Connector
Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of The HB Project
"I really love the way all kinds of info and settings are accessible from the main screen."
The HB Project 09/2015
Setting up

"Setup is really easy: start up the Raumfeld app and follow the instructions on screen. When that routine is finished you add one or more network shares that hold your music. You just select from a list of (possible) sources. Shown are computers that hold shared volumes or DLNA services."

The app

"Pressing the play button next to her name starts playing all her albums but you can also select one album or one track. Along the top of this window you can choose for sorting on album, genres, favorites, composers, recently added, by folder and on track. Tapping the left top corner of the album art shows the playlist, tap the center and the technical data of the music file are showed. Under the transport functions music zones can be activated, grouped and deactivated. The volume knob in the lower right corner also has a fold out menu for tone and balance control. Other sources are selected in the top row, where TuneIn offers plenty internet radio stations and subscription services as Tidal, WIMP, Spotify and Napster by Rhapsody. You can select the line input on any Raumfeld device in your system and play it on the same or any other Raumfeld device. I once said that any remote app for music players works just as fine, you just have to get used to it. The Raumfeld app proved me wrong. I really love the way all kinds of info and settings are accessible from the main screen. And that's even more than I have described here. The app isn’t as solidly robust as that of Sonos or Bluesound, it for instance jumps back to the home screen after short connection losses that occur from time to time. That doesn’t stop me from calling it my personal favorite but please do notice the word personal, for judging user interfaces always is a personal matter."
 
To sum up
 
"Comparison with the Squeezebox might seem odd, but it’s still popular despite being out of production for years and there still is an active second hand market. Replacing it with the Connector 2 might be interesting if you have a large music collection or if you want to play 24 bit 192 kHz files. The Logitech Media Server that provides Logitech devices with music is rather slow with large music collections, which is not the case with the Connector. Compared to the Sonos Connect it offers far more memory for storing the music catalogue and 24 bit 192 kHz playback at half the price. So if you have a stereo at or below the quality of my Set 3, the Teufel Raumfeld Connector 2 offers decent quality at a very low price."

Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of audiovision
"The Raumfeld Connector is the perfect partner for systems lacking their own network functionality."
audiovision 08/2013
"[...] This little box gives existing music systems that are not network enabled the ability to stream music and access Internet radio. In addition, it has an optical digital output as well as an analog stereo cinch connection and a line input with a sensitivity that can be regulated per software (app), a LAN interface, and USB port. [...] The on and off switch is located in an easy-to-reach position on the top  [...].

Setup and operation of the Raumfeld Connector can be executed via an optional remote control (Raumfeld Controller) or free app for mobile operating systems Android and iOS.

[...] As soon  [...] as the setup assistant is finished, it’s easy to play music from USB storage devices and DLNA servers, accessible computers, and music services like TuneIn, Napster, Simfy, or Last.fm. The current firmware can even handle extremely large music libraries (150,000 files) on network drives and USB devices. As one would expect from a high-end network player, high resolution audio files and gapless playback is supported.

Conclusion
The Raumfeld Connector is the perfect partner for systems lacking their own network functionality. The setup is quickly mastered, operating the device is simple, and the sound impressive."

Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of Smart Homes
"Those who are not just looking at comfort when it comes to multiroom, but maximum sound quality as well should take a closer look at Raumfeld."
Smart Homes 06/2013
"Raumfeld - the name already sounds superior. [...] Three different stereo speaker systems, a one speaker solution and – last, but not least – the Raumfeld Connector for connecting an existing hi-fi system combine to create a product range that just about satisfies every requirement. All components communicate with each other via accessible WLAN through which they also have access to music libraries available in the network [...]. In addition, Raumfeld naturally has command of Internet radio and various streaming services [...].”

Conclusion

"Those who are not just looking at comfort when it comes to multiroom, but maximum sound quality as well should take a closer look at Raumfeld. The system plays nearly all file formats, including many lossless and high resolution varieties, and therefore guarantees maximum music enjoyment with minimum cabling effort.”

Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of Hifi Digital
“It’s fast, easy to operate, sounds good, and is inexpensive to boot."
Hifi Digital 03/2013
“Teufel sells its miniature network player for a mere 200 Euros. In exchange, one gets an astonishing array of music possibilities as well as an alluring and extensive introduction into the world of Raumfeld. One namely has the ability to use the Connector 2 in combination with other network players from this manufacturer to build a multiroom connection [...] At first glance, the newcomer appears to be hardly different from its predecessor. The enclosure, however, is compacter. The reason for this is quickly ascertained: The WLAN antenna which was located on the back of the original Connector has been discreetly relocated in the interior of the enclosure. This change earns the new model high marks for style.”

“The basic structure of the network player hasn’t been changed by Teufel: The streamer plays music from UPnP or DLNA certified network servers along with NAS drives as well as the music library from any PC with Windows. It’s even capable of supporting sound formats [...] from USB storage devices connected to the back. Those who require more can tune in to tens of thousands of internet radio stations via the TuneIn service or can log in to his simfy or Napster account or make use of the analogue input. Should one possess more than one Raumfeld device, these signals can be streamed into other rooms. Unlike that first Connector, the new model can process a full 192 kilohertz.”

Conclusion

“It’s fast, easy to operate, sounds good and is inexpensive to boot. With the new Connector 2, Raumfeld gains ground on its main competitors.”


Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of Area DVD
Teufel Connector
Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of Area DVD
"Flexible to use and strong on sound – the ultra compact Connector2 delivers on all counts."
Area DVD 07.06.2013
 "The Connector2 can be integrated into networks with or without a cable. The cable connection is very simple. One simply inserts the appropriate network cable into the corresponding interface on the device and the Connector will be connected to the home network. [...]
If the Connector is connected to the Wi-Fi, it must be added as a ‘new room.’ For the setup, an Ethernet cable must be attached to the Connector, following which the Raumfeld App can be added. The router password must also be entered. The automated configuration for the Wi-Fi will follow, after which the LAN cable can be disconnected and the Connector2 will be wirelessly connected to the network.”

"The Connector plays MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, FLAC, OGG and Apple Lossless. A 192 kHz sampling rate is supported which makes the Connector2 compatible with high-resolution audio files. [...] The Connector creates an impressive-sounding playback with 192 kHz FLAC pieces such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s violin concert (SL Recording) in D minor. The details, clarity, and dimensionality are highly pronounced. The violins as the primary carriers of the song sound brilliant without having too sharp a tone. Even the complex piece ‘La Mer’ by Claude Debussy was captured in a very multifaceted way, including the many small dynamic differences which were accurately produced. The 96 kHz FLAC piece ‘Stop This World’ by Diana Krall has a lively, emphatic quality with a taut bass that is well differentiated in the listening room. Dianas’ voice has a smokey undertone, giving it a charismatic quality.

Depending on how good the D/A converter in one’s amplifier/receiver is, it’s possible to access the digital connection if this is available. In any case, we recommend a listening test before deciding on an analog or digital connection. Especially with older or inexpensive amplifiers/receivers, the use of the Connector’s very good D/A converter can be the better option. Even when bitstreams are transmitted from Internet radio platforms (TuneIn), the Connector ensures a lively, dimensionally rich sound with a high degree of clarity. The reliability of the transmission is very high. It doesn’t matter whether it’s connected to a LAN or Wi-Fi – interruptions are almost never discerned. This is true for the reproduction of Internet music streams as well as sound files from PCs or servers.”

Conclusion

"All told, Teufel offers a highly polished solution that can make hifi systems and older surround receivers fit for the era of modern media. With the exception of Spotify, all relevant music services are integrated and it’s easy to add music resources from PCs, servers, and USB storage devices. Playlists are quickly set up and can then be easily accessed. A free app enables simple handling so that even less experienced users can quickly and easily figure it out. The Connector2 can be connected to the network either with a cable or wirelessly. No Wi-Fi antenna intrudes upon the compact enclosure. The sound that the very compact and therefore easily accommodated Connector makes available is excellent and corresponds with Raumfeld’s claim to offer first-class streaming quality.

Flexible to use and strong on sound – the ultra compact Connector2 delivers on all counts."

Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of Einsnull
"Whoever’s considering streaming but afraid to commit has run out of excuses."
Einsnull 03/2013
"The Connector [...] plays just about every standard format (MP3, WAC, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, ASF, WMA, M4A, AAC and Apply Lossless) in all possible sampling rates. It quickly becomes apparent how well thought-out and, above all, universal the Raumfeld system is.”

"All this is contained within an attractive synthetic enclosure the size of a paperback. The device has two analog outputs as well as an optical digital output and a USB terminal for USB storage devices. With the current version of the Connector, 192 kHz and 24 bit are not a problem.”

"If you get tired of your own music, you can always make use of a pre-installed and thereby quickly accessible music service. [...] Thanks to a serious Cirrus Logic converter, the Connector produces an acoustic result that is simply outstanding [...]. A device in this or higher price class should try to beat it. One this is for sure: The Raumfeld system is and remains about the most stable and flexible solution for network streaming.”

Conclusion
"Whoever’s considering streaming but afraid to commit has run out of excuses. The Raumfeld Connector2 is easy to set up and has a sound so rewarding that anyone will be instantly and over the long run happy with it.”

Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of hifi-test.de
"The Raumfeld Connector 2 is so simple to set up and sounds so good that anyone can expect to derive immediate and long-lasting enjoyment from it.”
hifi-test.de 30.08.2013
“The streaming division of Teufel Audio has been around for just three years. Their product range extends from streaming loudspeakers and small routers to NAS systems and controllers – in other words, the whole streaming program. The new Connector 2 extends the existing hi-fi range to include smart streaming abilities.”

“The Berlin loudspeaker manufacturers and home cinema experts Teufel acquired a highly competent team with Raumfeld GmbH [...]. Since then, smart active speakers with integrated streaming and components that enable an expanded and user-friendly music network have been produced. One thing should be made clear: With respect to network stability, Raumfeld components are ahead of the pack.”

“While many still shy away from networks, IPs, or UPnP servers, there’s no talk of that here. It doesn’t matter what network structure you have at home or where your music is stored. This little box is like an additional player for your system and can be attached via cinch cable or digital Toslink. The network connection is made via LAN or Wi-Fi. [...] Set up is child’s play. All connectors, Raumfeld streaming speakers, and UPnP devices in the network can be configured via the app and then made available to existing music archives.”

“Thanks to the very best Cirrus Logic converter, the sound streamed by the connector is truly amazing. Every type of music is played clearly with fine resolution and solid, highly accurate dimensionality. Another device in this or an even higher price class has yet to reproduce this quality. One thing’s for sure: The Raumfeld system was and remains the most stable and flexible solution for network streaming out there.”

Conclusion
“Whoever’s considering streaming, but is afraid to commit no longer has an excuse. The Raumfeld Connector 2 is so simple to set up and sounds so good that anyone can expect to derive immediate and long-lasting enjoyment from it.”

Teufel Connector
Ultima 20 Kombo Streaming (2018) review of HiFi Choice
"With some really useful functionality, this little German streamer certainly lives up to its name"
HiFi Choice 11/18
From the electronics wing of German company Teufel, the Connector exists as a standalone source that allows an existing hi-fi setup to be integrated into a wider Raumfeld ecosystem. Like the other products here, it works perfectly well as an add-on streamer in its own right and has some useful functionality.

The Connector handles all lossless formats - bar DSD - at sample rates up to 24-bit/192kHz. Wired and wireless connectivity is supported and there's an analogue loop-through, which allows it to share an input with an existing source component, while the optical digital output allows you to use it with an external DAC.

The Connector is supplied with a dedicated app (iOS and Android), which is a slick and effective piece of software. Like others here, it renders the library on the controlling device, which takes longer to compile but is stable once complete. As well as your music library, there is Spotify Connect support and Tidal integration. There's no Bluetooth or AirPlay, but you do get Chromecast support built-in.

Having completed the simple setup and let the album library compile, the Raumfeld demonstrates more sonic character than some of the other streamers here and whether or not you like the effects of this will play a big part in how you get on with it. Adagio for Tron is presented with a small but appreciable life to the upper mid and treble. This helps the sense of separation and perception of individual instruments, so as the piece builds it can feel a little sharper and harder than some of the other players.

With the tonally darker recording of Dissolved Girl, the balance achieved is much more satisfying. There is a life and energy to the vocals that keeps them more defined and distinct from the electronics accompaniment that underpins them. Bass isn't the deepest here, but there is a speed and sense of agility to it that creates engagement with the listener. This also ensures the distinctive timing of Sinner in the Sea is delivered with assurance while highlighting the vocals and supporting instruments in a subtle but highly effective way.

That top-end lift is less effective with Mr Clean, though. Although a superb recording, the Raumfeld has the trumpet coming across as a little hard and sharp in comparison with some of the players here. The recording is presented with a good sense of space and three dimensionality, however. Moving on to hi-res material presents no playback issues, while the low-end agility is once again on hand to caputre the flow of Song of the Stars in a manner that consistently engages the listener. The Chromecast integartion is also effective, although rather more so with Android devices than it is with iOS ones where AirPlay is perhaps a more effective option.

Help regarding this product
Do I need the same cable length for all speakers?
In our experience, there is no acoustical difference for different cable lengths for lengths up to 15 metres.
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.
Ich möchte Kabelradio über meinen Teufel Kombo Receiver KB 42 hören. Das Antennenkabel ist richtig angesteckt, aber ich empfange nichts.
Zur Zeit wird in Deutschland das via Kabel empfangbare Radiosignal von analog auf digital umgestellt. Sofern ihr Kabelanbieter das Radioprogramm bereits auf digital umgestellt hat, benötigen Sie einen zusätzlichen Adapter (DVB-C Radio Tuner), welcher zwischen Antennenkabel und Kombo Receiver gesteckt wird. Einen DVB-C Radio Tuner erhalten Sie günstig im Fachhandel. Erkundigen Sie sich bitte auch direkt bei ihrem Kabelanbieter zum Stand der Umstellung.

Mehr Informationen erhalten Sie hier:  https://support.teufel.de/hc/de/articles/360001491759
Wie kann der UKW-Radioempfang meiner Stereo-Anlage Kombo 42/42 BT verbessert werden?
Die Stereo-Anlage Teufel Kombo 42/42 BT wird mit einer ansteckbaren Wurfantenne ausgeliefert. Um UKW-Radio zu hören, stecken Sie die Wurfantenne an der Rückseite des Gerätes an den entsprechenden Antennen-Anschluss und bewegen Sie die Antenne an verschiedene Positionen, um den Empfang eines UKW-Radiosenders einzustellen.

Hinweis: Die Wurfantenne ist lediglich eine Behelfsantenne. In Gegenden mit schwachem Radioempfang oder bei ungünstigen Wohnlagen empfehlen wir den Einsatz einer leistungsstärkeren Antenne oder den Anschluss an die Hausantenne (Kabel).
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.
No sound with high sample rates (Connector 2)
The Raumfeld Connector allows playback of music files with very high sample rates (up to 192 kBit). By connecting it to your stereo receiver you are able to enjoy high resoultion music files on your stereo set.

Unfortunately not all stereo receivers can process high sample rates on the optical input. If the Connector sends a signal with a higher sample rate than your stereo receiver is able to process it will not play the signal. Hence there is no sound.

In order to solve this problem the Connector offers the configuration option "Maximum sample rate on optical output". You will find it under Settings > Room Configuration > (Room name of Connector) > Connector.

This option allows you to set the maximum sample rate your stereo receiver is able to process. The Connector will then down-sample material with a higher sample rate to the denoted maximum sample rate.
I have a Connector connected to my system via a digital optical cable and sometimes experience drops in the music stream. What can I do to ensure even playback?
You can adjust the maximum sampling rate in the Connector’s configuration menu within the Raumfeld App. Try reducing this rate until your streams of music play without drops. If this does not help, activate the “fixed clock” option by checking the box. You’ll find the Connector’s configuration menu in the Raumfeld App under Settings>Room Configuration>Your Rooms(Select Connector) > Room Details(Select Connector again).
My devices' wireless signal is permanently low or breaks down frequently
To gain an overview over the signal strength of each Raumfeld devices in your network, open Settings > Network > Network Analysis.

A Loss of WLAN Signal

The constant loss of a device's Wlan signal even at high signal strength is due to interferences with other wireless networks. By changing the Wlan channel, you eliminate this interference and can fix this issue. Should your system contain a Raumfeld Base simply try out different channels as described in the online manual (Modifying of the Channel Setting (Raumfeld Base)) and see if the signal strength becomes steady. Access points from other manufacturers usually offer an according configuration option in their administration interface. 

Alternatively you may contact our service team, which is happy to assist you with the detection of the best channel available.

B Constant Low Signal Strength


If the signal strength of individual wireless devices is constantly beneath 50%, steps should be taken to upgrade the Wlan reception of the device and therewith the music playback reliability. In most cases it is sufficient to reduce the distance or the number of obstacles between your Raumfeld Base and your playback device. Simply check out if the reception increases when positioning the devices at different places.

In general, the less walls and ceilings between the devices, the better the reception is. Thick walls made from concrete or clay brick will especially abate the signal. Often a relocation of a few centimeters is enough to bypass any problems.

Mind the following advice that accounts for both, systems with Raumfeld Base or systems that are run with an access point from another manufacturer:

  • Position the Raumfeld Base or the third party access point you utilise rather high up, on a cupboard for example. Make sure there's some space towards the wall. Do not position the device on the floor or in a corner.
  • If you make use of a wireless phone there may be interferences with the wlan signal. Therefore, do not position the Base or the third party access point you utilise right next to the phone's base station.
  • Set up the devices in a way that ensures there are a minimum amount of obstacles inbetween your access point and the playback device. Avoid setting up the Raumfeld devices in alcoves or behind prominent corners.
  • Make sure there are no large-scale metal bodies between the access point and playback devices (e.g. radiators or fridges)
  • Large plants may also block the signal due to their moisture content and should not be between the access point and playback devices.
 If the reception does not increase after a repositioning we suggest using a standard Wlan repeater or to connect single components of your Raumfeld system with your existing wireless access point (see Connecting of your Raumfeld devices with your personal access point in the online manual). Please contact our service team to find the perfect solution for you.
I’m only able to access the Raumfeld Zones under “available devices“ in my Spotify App. How can I control the individual rooms?
Deactivate the Multiroom Mode for Spotify in the Raumfeld App by switching to the "off“ setting. You will then be able to individually control each device in the Spotify App.
The individual titles of my compilations are each displayed as their own album
Compilations or soundtracks are normally composed of various artists. In order to display them as a complete album, the tracks of a compilation must be grouped.

There are many different methods of accomplishing this, assuming that the same album name, or Album Tag, is assigned to all tracks. 
  • Assign the name of the compilation's producer to the tag Album Artist. Use "Various Artists" if the producer's name is unknown.
  • If you use iTunes, you may select for every song that they are Part of a Compilation under Get Info > Info.
  • As long as the album is stored locally on the Raumfeld Base, a network drive or USB storage, it is sufficient to simply save the music files in the same folder. Make sure, however, that only music files pertaining to the compilation are stored within this folder.
In order to edit your music collection's tags, we recommend the following programs:

Media Players
  • iTunes (Windows, Mac OS; only supports MP3, AAC, M4A, Apple Lossless)
  • Windows Media Player (Windows; only supports MP3, WMA)
  • Winamp (Windows; supports the same formats as Raumfeld except for WMA, WAV)
Special Tag-Editors
  • MP3-Tag (Windows; supports the same formats as Raumfeld except for WAV)
  • MusicBrainz Picard (Windows, Mac OS, Linux; supports the same formats as Raumfeld except for WAV)
Teufel Streaming (Raumfeld) basics
Would you like to get a comprehensive overview about the possibilities of Teufel Streaming systems? Our Teufel Streaming manual informs you about the basics, operation and integration of music resources. Find out more in the Teufel Streaming handbook: https://manual.teufel.de
I have no more access to the internet radio directory TuneIn in my Teufel Raumfeld app. What could be the reason?
For the further use of the radio service TuneIn, a software update may be required. The update is free of charge and only takes a few minutes. The software can easily be checked and updated:
  1. Start up all devices and opening the Teufel Raumfeld App.
  2. The main menu can now be called up on the app screen by briefly swiping to the right.
  3. First select "Settings" in the main menu, then menu item "System maintenance" and finally "Updates". By simply tapping on the "Check for updates" button, the device will automatically start to search for and download the latest version.
  4. After the download is complete, the update can be re-started by pressing the button again. This takes a maximum of about 3-5 minutes. Afterwards, TuneIn can be used again as usual.
I copied new music to a network share. Why isn't it displayed under My Music?
When you copy new music to a network share you have to manually initiate a rescan in order to see the music on your Controller or in the Raumfeld App, respectively.

In order to do so, go to My Music > Recently Added and tap the button "Update music index" on bottom of the list. Alternatively, visit Settings > Music Resources and activate a scan for new music on the music resource you've copied the music to.

Under Settings > Music Resources there is also an option to make your Raumfeld System check for new music every day. A manual scan is then not necessarily required.
Can different music (Multicast) be played in different rooms?
Multicast (different music in different rooms) is possible with Spotify, but not simultaneously. Due to certain restrictions stipulated by the provider, simultaneous multicast is not possible at the present time.
I use a version 6.0 Android device and am trying to set up my Wi-Fi streaming system. The setup assistant, however, does not continue after the initial screen. How can I proceed?
Make sure that your smart device is signed in to your home WiFi – the same WiFi network you plan to use with your Wi-Fi streaming system. If you are already signed in to your WiFi network, deactivate your smart device’s access to mobile internet for the duration of the setup.
I use an Android device version 6.0 or higher. The music I stream directly from this device drops after a short time. What could be the reason for this?
One reason could be that your smart device is going into standby mode and dropping the connection.

Solution: Add the Teufel Raumfeld app to your standby exception list, also known as your device’s “whitelist.” To do this, go to “Settings” in your Android menu and then “Apps,” “Advanced,” “Battery optimization,” “All apps” and “Raumfeld.”
I can find settings for my subwoofer in the Teufel Raumfeld app. What are these for?
The menu items "subwoofer volume" and "subwoofer crossover frequency" are only stored in the app menu under "room settings" if a Teufel Streaming soundbar is operated over the same Wi-Fi connection. With a soundbar/subwoofer combination, the sound signal is "distributed" to the devices, i.e. the sounbar outputs the higher frequencies and the subwoofer, the lower ones. This signal distribution is defined under the menu item "subwoofer crossover frequency". Installation tips:
  • Leave the crossover frequency on the default setting if you are satisfied with the sound or if the Teufel Streaming subwoofer is located close to the soundbar (recommended).
  • If the subwoofer is placed at the side or at the back of the room, it is possible that the overall sound may no longer be harmonious. In this case, try changing the crossover frequency in the app until you are satisfied with the sound.
  • If, for example, the sound image of the soundbar is too thin, reduce the crossover frequency. If the bass sounds too flat, increase the crossover frequency.
  • You can also adjust the subwoofer volume separately.
Kann ich die Teufel Raumfeld App auch ohne Konto bei Google downloaden und nutzen?
Falls Sie Teufel Streaming über die Teufel Raumfeld App auf einem Android Handy steuern möchten, aber kein Google Account eingerichtet haben, um die App kostenfrei aus dem Play Store zu beziehen, so können Sie das APK (Android-Programmpaket) zur Installation der Teufel Raumfeld App auf Anfrage beim Support zugesendet bekommen.

Bitte beachten Sie aber, dass eine auf diesem Weg installierte App von zukünftigen Updates ausgeschlossen ist. Ferner kann die vollumfängliche Nutzung aller Features nicht gewährt werden.

Die Einrichtung eines Google Accounts ist übrigens kostenlos.
Can I use my home cinema with the Teufel Streaming system?
In order to use your home cinema system with your Teufel Streaming system you require a Connector:
  • Connect the analogue or digital output of the Connector to an appropriate input of your home cinema amplifier
  • Connect an analogue output of your amplifier to the analogue input of the Connector
This will allow you:
  • to listen to music from your Teufel Streaming system via your home cinema system
  • to stream the audio signal of TV series or movies into other rooms of your house
Please note that there will be a short delay between video and audio signal when you stream it into other rooms. If you choose to play the audio signal via your home cinema system only, audio playback is of course in perfect sync with the video signal.

Do I need to be experienced with technology (Wi-Fi, SSID, WEP, computers, Internet, programming)?
Knowledge about wireless networks or computer technology is not necessary for setting up or using the Teufel Streaming systems. New devices are added to the system simply at the touch of a button.
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.
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.
The Teufel Raumfeld app setup wizard does not find a device after pressing the setup key on the back of the device. The display shows "Searching for device..." or "No device found". What can I do?
There are many reasons why a Teufel Streaming device may not be found during setup, i.e. when the app displays the notifications "Searching for device“ or "Not found”. The following will cover the most likely causes as well as possible solutions.

1) It’s possible that your home Wi-Fi is unable to recognise the device due to certain settings on your Wi-Fi router.

Solution: You can enable your Wi-Fi to recognise the device by directly connecting the Teufel Streaming device to your router via Ethernet cable and repeating the setup process.

2) Other active network devices may prevent your Wi-Fi router from recognising the device. Solution: Deactivate all devices (such as smart TVs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, AV receivers, media servers) that use your LAN or Wi-Fi network for the duration of the Teufel Streaming setup process. Before beginning a new setup process, be sure to restart your Wi-Fi router and complete the setup using a single smartphone.

3) The use of switches, repeaters and additional access points within your home Wi-Fi network can hinder device recognition. Solution: Either restart all additional network devices or turn off these devices for the duration of the setup process.

4) If you use a cordless phone over a landline (DECT) and have this phone in the vicinity of your router or Teufel Streaming device, it may be disrupting your Wi-Fi signal. This is because both DECT and Wi-Fi use the same 2.4 GHz signal.

Solution: Relocate your DECT base station or switch off your DECT telephone for the duration of the setup process.
The Teufel Raumfeld app indicates an error after selecting the Wi-Fi and entering the network key (Wi-Fi password). What could be the reason for this?
If you're using a smart device with the Android operating system version 5.X (Lollipop), the problem could caused by two possible smart device settings:

1) The setting "Smart network change" switches the smart device to the mobile network whenever the WiFi signal becomes too weak. Since Teufel Streaming requires a continuous Wi-Fi connection, this setting cannot be used.

2) The "Auto IP Support" function determines when the home Wi-Fi network does not support DHCP (the automatic assignation of a network address). Although a very useful feature, Auto IP Support cannot be used with the Teufel Streaming system. This is because Teufel Streaming devices need to be assigned an IP from the router in order to independently communicate with the home network and internet.

Solution: The Android functions "Smart network change" and "Auto IP Support" should be deactivated. Next, ensure that your router allows for DHCP and then repeat the setup process.
Die Teufel Raumfeld App zeigt einen "Hoppla"-Hinweis unmittelbar nach der Raumnamen-Vergabe. Im Display steht "Gerät wird konfiguriert". Woran kann dies liegen?
Other devices in your WiFi network may be preventing the Setup Assistant from completing the setup process.

Solution: Deactivate all devices (such as smart TVs, laptops, smartphones, tablets, AV receivers, media servers) that use your LAN or WiFi network for the duration of the setup process. Before beginning a new setup process, be sure to restart your WiFi router and complete the setup using a single smartphone.

Please note that the processes carried out during the notification "Configuring device..." may take a few minutes to complete. We therefore ask for patience in order to ensure that the setup is indeed experiencing difficulty completing and that your smartphone does not go into standby mode.
Während der Einrichtung muss das WLAN-Passwort eingeben werden, damit Ihre Geräte im Heimnetzwerk angemeldet werden können. Was kann ich machen?
Check that the password you entered is still current. Make sure that you are not using the password for your SIM card, Google account, music service or other account. Teufel Streaming requires the password for your home WiFi. This is sometimes also called the "network key".

Tip I: You'll often find your WiFi password / network key on the back of your WiFi router. As long as this password has not been changed, it should still be valid.

Tip II: The auto correct function in your smart device may be changing the characters you enter. We therefore recommend switching off this auto correct function.
During setup, the Wi-Fi network via which the system is to be integrated in the future must be selected in the app. However, my home network is not listed in the selection list. What could be the reason?
The following are a few reasons why your Wi-Fi network may not appear in the list presented in the app:

1) If the signal strength of your Wi-Fi network is only 30% or less where you are holding your phone, it will not appear. Since the system requires a signal strength greater than 30% in order to function without drops in playback, only networks that offer this minimum signal strength will be displayed.

Solution: Increase the signal strength of your Wi-Fi signal and/or find a better place for your device.

2) It’s technically possible to hide a Wi-Fi network. This option is usually offered in a Wi-Fi router’s settings. If you’ve selected this setting option, your home network will not be displayed within the app.

Solution: Make sure that the Wi-Fi is set to "visible“.
Während der Einrichtung zeigt die App die Meldung "Router inkompatibel" an. Woran kann das liegen?
There can be many reasons for the notification "Wi-Fi router is incompatible”. The most common reasons for this notification have to do with router configurations affecting your home WiFi which can be changed. The following are the most common WiFi settings that may be the cause:

1) The function DHCP (the automatic assignment of a network address) is not switched on. This prevents the Raumefld device from registering with the home WiFi network.

Solution: Activate the DHCP function in your home WiFi router’s settings. Tip: Some manufacturers list DHCP as a feature with names like “Reject unknown devices”. Contact the manufacturer of your router if you are unsure what this feature is called.

2) A so-called Mac filter is switched on in your router. This filter prevents the registration of unknown devices which includes all devices not already using the WiFi network.

Solution: Deactivate the Mac filter for the duration of the setup process or add your device to the router’s list of known devices. Note: Some manufacturers refer to the Mac filter with names like "Only allow known devices.“ Contact the manufacturer of your router if you are unsure what this feature is called.

3) The router is blocking direct communication (the exchange of data) between two or more devices connected to the same WiFi network. Known as “client isolation,” this setting is often preconfigured, especially with guest network access.

It requires direct communication in order to receive information (such as when you press "play“) from your smartphone. The client isolation setting is often overlooked as it does not prevent a device from accessing the internet.

Solution: Do not use a guest WiFi access for your device; deactivate the client isolation feature.

Note: Some manufacturers refer to client isolation under different names. It may also be a preconfigured part of a security level you have chosen for your WiFi network. Contact the manufacturer of your router for more information.
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 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.
How can I install software updates?
All Raumfeld devices regularly connect to the Raumfeld update service to look for updated software versions. If updates are available you can easily install them at the push of a button.

Hence your components keep up to date and you can benefit from advancements in the latest software releases.

Since Raumfeld software version 1.3 it is also possible to install updates via a USB stick. This enables you to apply updates without an internet connection.


Of course we also provide continuous updates of the Raumfeld App for your smartphone. These updates are distributed via your smartphone's app store.
My USB storage is not recognised
Connected to the Raumfeld Base
When USB storage is attached to the Base your Raumfeld system will automatically begin to scan for new music. You can follow the scan progress under Settings > Music Resources. The following are possible causes as to why your USB storage may not be automatically found:

A) The file system of the disk may not be compatible. We support the following formats:

  • FAT16 / FAT32
  • NTFS
  • HFS / HFS+
  • EXT2 / EXT3 / EXT4

B) We seldomly have had reports of issues with USB 1.0 devices. We therefore recommend using devices that support USB 2.0.

Connected to a Raumfeld Speaker or Connector (System without Raumfeld Base)
USB storage that has been connected to a Raumfeld Speaker or Connector can only be used for playback in the Raumfeld system if the device is configured as the Raumfeld Host (see Network in the online manual).

Please also note that for first-generation Speakers and Connectors, apart from USB sticks only USB 2.0 storage with its own power supply or USB sticks are supported. These constraints do not apply to second-generation devices, e.g. Connector 2.
Can I control the Raumfeld System from an iPod Touch or iPhone?
The Raumfeld Controller App turns your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a full controller for your Raumfeld multi room audio system. It is available free in the app store.
What is the difference between active and passive speakers?
An active speaker contains the amplifiers for the pair of speakers. You can easily recognise it as it also holds the power connector and the Wi-Fi antenna. The passive speaker is connected to the active speaker via a speaker cable.
Is it possible to combine several pairs of speakers in larger rooms?
If you want to provide a particularly large room with music, you can easily set up several Teufel Streaming speakers in one room. The Room Configuration settings allow you to assign multiple devices to a single room so that you can easily control music selection and volume.
 
Which Spotify subscription plan do I need in order to stream music (on a single device or in a multiroom setup) from Spotify to my Raumfeld device?
In order to listen to Spotify with your Raumfeld speakers, you need to subscribe to Spotify Premium. Due to certain restricitons stipulated by the provider, the free account is not sufficient to stream with the system. You can learn more about Spotify Premium here
I activated my iPhone/iPad as a resource in Raumfeld. However, it frequently is displayed as being “offline” even though it’s logged in to the Wi-Fi. What causes this to happen?
This can occur when multiple mobile devices are used with Raumfeld at the same time. The iPhone/iPad goes offline after 10 minutes if not in use. This conserves the battery on the iPhone/iPad.

Solution: If the resources are offline, simply open the Teufel Reumfeld app on the device from which you would like to stream digital content.
Welches Netzwerk-Protokoll (SMB) muss ich einstellen, wenn Teufel Streaming auf Musik, gespeichert auf Netzlaufwerken oder in Ordnerfreigaben zugreifen soll?
With network protocol SMB1 Teufel Streaming recognises music files on network drives or folder sharing the best. Set the SMB1 protocol in the properties of your computer or /NAS to listen to music via Teufel Streaming.
