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

Sonic Emotion™ Absolute 3D technology

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

Soundbase Cinebase Teufel Sonic Emotion

The highlights of Sonic Emotion™ Absolute 3D

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

Advantages compared to similar 5.1 systems

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

Soundbase Cinebase Teufel Sonic Emotion
① Standard 5.1 system

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

② With Sonic Emotion 3D

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

Easy installation

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

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

    Two jet subwoofers for powerful Teufel sound

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

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

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

      "Sonic Emotion Absolute 3D is a technology from the professional audio sector that steers the six fullrange drivers in front and sides on the Cinebase in such a way that a 3-dimensional sonic impression is created. The depths and even the highs in the soundstage are utterly impressive.”

      Conclusion
      "Teufel’s Cinebase helps those with a flatscreen television and equally flat sound achieve a compelling sound with authentic bass action. It impresses with exceptional wave field synthesis and six fullrange drivers as well as a realistic surround sound!

      "Reviewing the Cinebase was a lot of fun from the word go. After all, the well-equipped Teufel loudspeaker offers plenty of possibilities for it.”

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

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

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

      "In the listening test, Teufel’s Cinebar showed what it’s made of and reproduced content powerfully and forcefully. There was a good foundation in the bass range. While it didn’t venture into the furthest depths, it was very well defined for a soundbase. Especially growling bass benefits from the distortion-free playback and bass drums are endowed with a noticeable punch.”

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

      "The flabby three transforms into a high-powered eight cylinder, blasts out the sound in a big way from the start and keeps it going whenever the action heats up on the screen. [...] Without changing anything in the basic settings or activating the surround sound function, the Cinebase elevates the sound quality from the premier leagues to the Bundesliga.”

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


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

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

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

      Conclusion

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

      Teufel Cinebase: Well equipped


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

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

      Setup


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

      Sound Quality


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

    Sound wonders
    Another Teufel product that gets a 5 star rating from me because the sound is simply convincing. Crystal clear highs, spatial sound and the convincing bass of the Cinebase definitely enhance my new OLED TV. No question, I am absolutely glad to have bought this little sound miracle. What also convinces me is the very good price-performance ratio. As the proud owner of Teufel Theater 6 Hybrid 5.2 speakers, which are used in the home cinema room, I was afraid to be disappointed by the Cinebase. One thing is clear: the fear was unfounded! The Cinebase is a clear recommendation to buy!

    Best price/quality on the market
    During my search for a soundbar/plate that can play music and replace my TV-speaker, both for TV and movies, I tested different models : both from Q-Accoustics (disappointing), Cambridge Audio (very good but not enough power) and Samsung (insufficient for playing music). Then about 6 weeks ago I happened to come across an offer from Teufel... I thought "it doesn't benefit, then it doesn't hurt"... This soundplate fits perfectly under your 55" TV and connecting it is a piece of cake, the remote control is clear, and this soundplate does more than great as a replacement for your TV-speaker. There are different DSP settings on the remote control (music/movie/speech), and they do an excellent job of getting the sound to the listener in the best possible way. The soundboard can reproduce subdued and clear conversations (talk show, news), but it will also overwhelm you with sound effects (during Joker's bluray, for example). It is also suitable for music, with all the ease of use that goes with it (connect a single mobile phone via BT and stream mp3 or Spotify). Although this quality can't replace your more expensive stereo (e.g. bluetooth and edited via DSP), you shouldn't expect that for a device that only costs a fraction of that stereo. Given the lack of retail sales and the few reviews, this beastie was a gamble to get, but I haven't complained for a moment :-)
    Mega quality
    We are completely satisfied with the really cool sound and the basses knock you out. Top product again and again with pleasure

    Good sound
    I am very satisfied with the Cinebase. Rich sound and very good bass. It's a pity that you can't adjust the sound individually, but price performance is top.
