Why THX?

Created by George Lucas, THX is a standard for cinemas and home theatre systems that guarantees thrilling sound with movies and music. With THX, you’ll experience playback as the director and sound engineer envisioned -- without compromise.
THX loudspeakers guarantee:
  • Minimum distortion at high levels for a consistently clean, detailed sound
  • Broad sound dispersion for the same experience no matter where you sit in the room
  • A linear frequency response for playback free from colouration
  • High levels capable of filling even larger rooms
The new Cinebar 52 THX fulfils all of these THX requirements, making it the only soundbar in the world to earn the THX Speaker Bar certification.

250-Watt THX subwoofer

The subwoofer also blends in well thanks to its restrained design and well thought out details such as rounded corners, integrated stand feet, and robust metal grilles that protect the drivers.

Surround sound from a single enclosure

Specially patented components from Dolby allow the listener to experience a dimensionality that comes close to that of a 5.1 surround sound system from a single enclosure. Dolby Virtual Speaker creates the impression of sound sources all around the listener for a convincing virtual surround effect. The system offers two basic modes: “Reference” for realistic surround sound and “wide” for an extremely wide stereo panorama with gaming and movies. Of course, Dolby Virtual speaker can also be deactivated.

Supports all formats

Director’s Cut

  • A 2-way system with a total of 6 drivers renders dynamic, nuanced, and distortion-free playback with film soundtracks, games, and music.
  • Two 25 mm aluminium tweeter emit a clear and powerful upper range with a maximum load capacity.
  • Four high-excursion 100 mm midrange drivers produce a warm midrange and a high degree of speech intelligibility even at low volumes.
  • A 250 mm bass driver in the bass reflex subwoofer enclosure with double reflex vents produces deep, thundering bass without wind noise even at high volumes.
  • A 300 watt class D emplifier in the soundbar + a 250 watt class D amplifier in the subwoofer ensures high levels, extremely low noise and minimal power consumption.

The advantage of HDMI

Thanks to HDMI CEC (Consumer Electronic Control) you can regulate the volume and switch between input sources on the Cinebar with your television remote. With HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel), Blu-ray players, gaming consoles as well as televisions can be easily connected directly to the Cinebar for less wires running to your TV.

Easy living room integration

The Cinebar’s timeless, premium design looks great in any living room. The subwoofer also blends in well thanks to its restrained design and well thought out details such as rounded corners, integrated stand feet, and robust metal grilles that protect the drivers.

    "Of all the conventional soundbars that make use of psychoacoustics in order engender a surround sound, the Teufel Cinema 52 THX has, without a doubt, the best sound."
    Area DVD 16.01.2015

    Testbericht - iTeufel Magnum
    "If you turn it on and up, it delivers 2 x 100 watts and 2 x 150 watts of maximum power output. The efficient class D amplifiers are capable of producing the required effect in even a larger listening room.”

    "It quickly becomes apparent that it’s not for nothing that the Cinebar discharges with such strength. It disperses a sound experience that markedly exceeds what one normally associates with the word 'soundbar.' Whether in terms of level stability, volume, 3-dimensionality or overall dynamics, the Cinebar 52 delivers excellent results. This is also attributable to the powerful active subwoofer [...].“

    "Voices are very successfully worked into the whole - even with parallel events - and can be easily understood.“

    "The musical score is also very well presented and convincingly transports the suspense contained in the plot. The resolution of various effects – splittering glass, collapsing house walls – is exceptional. The result is a truly gripping sound that makes the right cinematic feeling possible with just a single component.”

    "The interaction between the soundbar and the subwoofer is exceptional. No disruptive sound gaps could be discerned with even musical material.“

    "Of all the conventional soundbars that make use of psychoacoustics in order engender a surround sound, the Teufel Cinema 52 THX has, without a doubt, the best sound. Playing with incredibly high performance with excellent dynamics, dense spatiality and even surprisingly rich details, it’s even possible to enjoy classical music in excellent quality. These features allow the Cinebar 52 THX to occupy a completely exceptional position. Premium workmanship and excellent quality of the materials distinguish the soundbbar and included remote.”

    “The Cinebar 52 THX from Teufel is an allround worry-free package for those who want maximum sound quality with minimum space requirements.”

    “During the listening test, the Teufel loudspeaker combination made it clear what class it aspires to from the very first minute. For a soundbar, the sound is surprisingly powerful and extensive  [...]. The subwoofer unrelentingly pushed vollies of air pressure so far into the listening room with controlled dynamics that film effects were conveyed with very good authenticity. Thanks to THX certification, the Teufel Duo doesn’t run out of breath very quickly when it comes to level stability either so that the sound remains consistently clean and clear at even high volume levels. In this way, dialogue and vocals are reproduced expressively and with a high degree of understandability [...]. The Cinebar 52 THX doesn’t hold back with even musical material. Whether Celine Dion, R. Kelly or Megadeth, the new Teufel combination evinces a thoroughly convincing acoustic performance.”

    Conclusion:

    “Teufel proves that living room friendly, compact audio solutions can offer powerful sound. Thanks to a potent subwoofer and sophisticated technology, the Cinebar 52 THX is the perfect companion for all movie and music fans looking for an easy-to-use, visually restrained and high performance sound solution.”

    "It quickly becomes clear when setting up the cinema bar that one has a device of the highest quality in one’s hands.“

    "In the sound check, the Cinebar benefitted from a low end supported by the 250 watt strong wireless subwoofer. Especially in action-packed scenes, this underscored explosions and machine gun fire with an impressive underpinning of bass that guaranteed an authentic cinema experience. It’s not for nothing that the Cinebar 52 was awarded the coveted THX seal in the product description. Aside from the bass that can be easily regulated with a control dial on the subwoofer for unadulterated music playback, the soundbar exhibited a captivating penchant for details and a crystal clear reproduction of vocals [...]."

    "A good meter wide, the soundbar from Teufel is a truly large exemplar of its type and therefore fits well under even larger screens; yet the Cinebar 52 is thoroughly manageable and elegat sound system. This makes it all the more amazing that the Cinebar 52 is able to bring across the over 100 dBs of sound pressure required by THX.“

    "[It was] designed with four high-performance 100 mm midrange drivers that together with two 25 mm tweeters take care of dynamic playback above 120 Hz in the Cinebar 52.  A 2-channel digital amplifier with 150 watts per channel in the slender subwoofer ensures sufficient power.“

    Test:
    "In the acoustic laboratory, the Cinebar 52 THX’s subwoofer delivered an enormous amount of sound pressure and shone with a low end of about 35 Hz. With a balanced frequency response and extremely minimal distoration, the soundbar itself also made its presence felt.“

    Conclusion
    "Whoever wants to enjoy authentic cinema sound at home makes a good choice with the THX certified loudspeaker: With its elegant and slender soundbar, the Cinebar 52 THX is the perfect match for larger flatscreens and is therefore truly to be recommended for those who enjoy dynamic cinema sound.“

    "Within the well-constructed enclosure made from extruded aluminium there lies [...] a surround decoder capable of processing Dolby Digital, DTS and Prologic II sound signals that is also - with the aid of “Dolby Virtual Speaker“ - able to process a quasi surround sound for playback from the Cinebar 52 THX’s stereo loudspeakers. An active subwoofer that comes with the system is responsible for a THX conform and home cinema grade deep bass which, thanks to a 250 mm woofer within a bass reflex enclosure and a 150 watt digital amplifier, is able to supply sufficient depth.”

    Test
    "In the listening test, the Cinebar 52 THX emphatically proved that it rightfully earned itsTHX license: The slender soundbar delivered a full cinema sound with powerful and unstoppable dynamics capable of leaving certain smaller 5.1 systems in the dust. Crystal clear dialogue, thrilling bass and a respectable surround sound effect thanks to "Dolby Virtual Speaker“ acoustically barely let on that one is dealing with a compact soundbar and subwoofer with the Cinebar 52 THX.”

It’s good that there’s a compact sound system with the coveted THX approval in the form of the Cinebar 52 THX.

    Testbericht audiovision Soundbar Cinebar 52 THX sehr gut
    "With its black brushed aluminium enclosure, the nine kilo, one meter wide soundbar makes an elegant appearance. The flat remote has a solid feel thanks to its high weight and metal surface on the back.”

    "The elbow adapters that come with the system are a neat detail: They make it easier to plug in the cable and reduce the amount of space needed in the back by about 12 centimetres. The matrix control panel displays easily readable information regarding the source, volume and sound mode and thereby simplifying operation. If no commands are received, the control panel blacks out so as not to disturb nocturnal film viewings.”

    "The THX virtues, so beloved among home cinema fans, can be discerned at high levels. Where less expensive models like to start droning and distorting the sound, the Cinebar 52 remains calm with its 2 x 100 watts of amplification for the soundbar and 150 watts for the subwoofer.”

    "The four 10 centimetre large long-throw midbass drivers reproduce dialogue that is sonorous and understandable even at high volumes without slipping into cutting or rumbling sounds. If one mistreats the Teufel combination with test signals like bass sounds and 400 Hertz tones, it becomes apparent that barely any interference, distortion or vibrations are apparent which explains the relaxed, commanding sound.”

    Conclusion:
    “Teufel’s THX soundbar [...] spoils the user [...] with an enormously dynamic film sound. It only gets better with a full-fledged 5.1 set.”

Convincing
Super sound, very good bass, I would not have thought that, It's just fun.
(automatisch übersetzt *)
Connectivität
All in all ok, but sometimes it takes quite a long time until the subwoofer starts, so it gets a recognizable signal. I imagined the room/sound experience to be a little more impressive.
(automatisch übersetzt *)
Super sound, especially THX
Very good design and great sound
(automatisch übersetzt *)
absolutely top
Are absolutely thrilled with the look and performance! Thanks a lot for this cool part!
(automatisch übersetzt *)
If there is not enough room
One thing you have to be aware of with this system, it does not replace a full-fledged sorround system. The simulated sounds that should sound coming from behind are hardly present. But !!!! If you don't have more space or want to/must save on the wiring and don't want to do without a tidy and tidy sound system, the Cinebar 52 THX is the perfect choice. Even if the sound of course only comes from the front, you will be happy about a correspondingly balanced and really powerful system. I personally wanted to change to a big THX system from Teufel, but on the whole this sound experience is enough for me and since I want to save the space and the wiring, I leave it with the Cinebar 52 THX. The handling or the behaviour of the remote control takes some getting used to, but it shouldn't be overrated. I only equipped the whole system with optical cables - it's easy to install and perfect that way !!! The price for this sound and power is more than justified and will probably be hard to beat in the price-performance ratio. If someone wants a soundbar for similar reasons as described above, this system will serve it very well. I can only recommend it highly. Won't be my last Teufel product.
Almost as expected
Great design, great bass, great speech intelligibility for film dialogues. Listening to music is also great. Trigger for the low range of the FB and the problematic ARC( device does not always switch the signal through, sometimes it has to be switched on 3 times until everything works).
Super Soundbar
This is an absolutely great soundbar. Quickly connected, set up and a super sound.
(automatisch übersetzt *)
Great system
With the various connections a super system. The sound is absolutely world class.
(automatisch übersetzt *)
Super successful Soundbar
At first I was sceptical - whether it would reproduce the sound of surround like a 5.1 system. Now I can fully confirm this
(automatisch übersetzt *)
Top Soundbar
Haven't heard anything better so far and I'm Mukker, so I've heard a little bit already. Easy installation and top hotline for questions. You know what you are doing.
