Empty the ring, folks: with good speakers the game is all inside the ears. And from all sides. 14 loudspeaker systems, ranging from 40 to 450 euro in our test. And in the 5.1 system with decoder the Concept E 200 Digital from Teufel decisively took all the points. It delivers a good sound quality and doesn’t show any weaknesses.

The Teufel set comes with an excellent remote control and a separate Dolby Digital decoder. That makes possible the direct connection of the loudspeakers with the Xbox 360 game console and Playstation 3. The sound playback is equally as homogeneous: room-free sound with the best details. And that at high volumes too, with enormous bass and deep bass dynamics.

• Best sound playback in the test
• Very high volume levels without distortion
• Dolby Digital decoder
• Wireless remote control

Decoderstation 5

This clever high-tech tool transforms an active 5.1 speaker ensemble into a complete multimedia centre. Thanks to the Decoderstation 5, a purely PC-based set is converted to a universal system to use anywhere.

Connect 8 devices
Up to eight external devices can be used with the Decoderstation 5 via a Teufel multichannel speaker set – without shifting the plugs around – simply by pressing a button on the decoder itself or using the infrared remote control.


Full surround quality

The integrated Dolby/dts decoders of the Decoderstation 5 enable an original 5.1 playback in full surround quality. A 32-character display keeps you informed about current function status; the supplied remote control permits you to conveniently control all functions from your listening location.

A Teufel cable with a 1.0 mm² cross sectional area is recommend for multimedia systems and less expensive home cinema systems where only short distances need to be covered.

CCA Wires

The wires within this cable are made from copper-clad aluminium. CCA cables have the same electric conductivity as full copper wires but weigh less, making them easier to work with.

More wire strands per cable

The loudspeaker cable contains an especially high number of strands for extra flexibility and conductivity.

Robust jacket

The extremely robust yet flexible outer jacket protects the high-quality cable inside. The positive pole is indicated.

Connection

The loudspeaker cables can be connected directly to the amplifier/loudspeaker or by means of a banana plug.

Delivery

One loudspeaker cable plus cable ties with Velcro is delivered in separate packaging.

Stereo cinch cable for connecting devices such as amplifier/AV receivers to a CD or record player etc.

    CE 10 FCR vorne mit Abdeckung/Standfuß

    Satellite Speaker CE 10 FCR

    The CE 10 FCR micro satellite delivers unbelievable performance despite its compact size.
    Thanks to a high-performance driver with an 80 mm diameter and a subwoofer with active filtering, it can powerfully play back the complete frequency range between mid-tone and treble without breaks or distortion. The curved front ensures better sound radiation than previous conventional constructions.

    The acoustically transparent cover of the 9 x 9 centimetre sound marvel can be removed for “open” operation, but normally has a “floating” mounting: Benefits: Minimisation of edge reflections. A curved front provides improved sound radiation compared to previous constructions.

    The supplied matching table stand ensures optimal placement options on a desk or shelf. An optional Shortlock bracket can be used to fasten and then horizontally/vertically swivel the cube. The separately available M 60 P base is an alternative stand placement option.

    CE 200 SW vorne

    5.1 Subwoofer CE 200 SW

    The Concept E 200 SW marks the mid-point in the Concept E series segment. But we’re not talking about mediocrity here, but rather excellent technical properties: With a maximum of 300 watts on six channels, the Concept E 200 is numbered among the absolute top class of multimedia subwoofers – worldwide!
    This opulent performance can be finely adjusted using the level controller of the three switches on the front after the connections from its rear 5.1 cinch connectors have been made to surround sound cards or other stereo sources.

    The standard side-mounted bass speaker for the new Concept E models measures an imposing 250 mm, and produces the round, sonorous output of this master of bass. No wonder – the lower limit frequency is a fabulous 36 Hz (at -3 dB). Many other home cinema woofers will pale in comparison! The bass reflex calibration together with the generously dimensioned casing contributes to the successful overall impression.

    The Concept E 200 SW is only available as part of a Concept E 200 set.

    "If you're in the market for a capable 5.1 speaker system, then the Concept E 200 warrants consideration."
    PC Utilities 06/2009

    Teufel is a new company to the UK, but it's certainly looking to make a name for itself with products like the Concept E-200. This 5.1 speaker system really looks the business. All the speakers sport a tough matt black plastic finish, with a more eye-catching glossy black finish on the front of the central unit. The 200W subwoofer and amplifier is a large and heavy beast, though the five 100W satellite speakers are pleasantly compact and discreet.

    The subwoofer puts a weighty thump behind games, intense movies and music, while the satellite speakers pack ini more punch than you'd expect given their size.

    Overall sound quality was very crisp, and certainly left us nothing to complain about. If you're in the market for a capable 5.1 speaker system, then the Concept E-200 warrants consideration.

    "We were greatly impressed"
    Computer Shopper 04/2010
    "Novices will appreciate the comprehensive, illustrated manual which aids set up. Each of the satellites is interchangeable as there's no dedicated centre speaker. Unlike most PC surround sound sets, the satellites connect to the subwoofer using speaker wire instead of phono or 3.5 mm stereo cables.

    The subwoofer has phono audio inputs, so you'll need a phono-to-3.5 mm audio adaptor to connect most computers. The volume, bass and treble controls are located on the front of the subwoofer and are conveniently illuminated making them easier to find and adjust under a desk or in a darkened living room.

    We were greatly impressed with the sound quality of the Concept E 200 when playing movies. The full, rumbling, room-shaking bass make explosions and other dramatic audio effects sound deep and vibrant. Less dramatic sound effects and conversations sound well-balanced so that fine, subtle details and intonations that lesser speakers fail to reproduce clearly are readily apparent here ... Music also sounded equally pleasing. All genres benefited from the Concept E 200's clear, warm, rich and detailed sound.

    Verdict:
    If you have the budget and the room these speakers are a great buy: 4/5."

    "Teufel Decoderstation 5 with 5.1 Active LS system Concept E 300."
    Area DVD 03/2009
    Sound
    Sound Dolby Pro Logic II: CD "Dream Dance Vol. 50, CD 1": what a step ahead – acoustically this combination of the Decoderstation 5 and Concept E 300 in comparison to the older Decoderstation 3 and the Concept E Magnum Digital are hardly in the same ball park. The January, 2008 tested products were still cheaper, but the in-total 448 euro for the brand-new Teufel combination is an excellent investment. With Paffendorfs "Self Control" the attractive subwoofer really impresses. All power amplifiers are located in its housing, which gives pleasure during performance and a surprising depth. With increased volumes the Concept E 400 remains sovereign and provides a precise, room-filling sound with excellent differences between vocal and instrumental elements. The subwoofer not only delivers tremendous sound pressure – as shows with "I kissed a Girl" or "Real Booty Babes" – but is quick on the uptake and immediately implements bass impulses. In each individual you get amazing results in an astoundingly constructive way. The bass is hefty and quick, the highs and midranges are homogeneous and played forward without-error.

    Conclusion
    Well thought-out, optically gorgeous, strong sound – this price-conscious combination of the Concept E 300 and the Decoderstation 5 is for beginners or old hands that need an inexpensive second solution…for example, playing PC multimedia files…a perfect choice. Volume level strength is excellent for such a system. The connection possibilities fort he Decoderstation 5 are also something to praise as well as its balanced and clean worksmanship. This is our summary: you'll hardly find more sound, quality and equipment for 450 euro anywhere else around.

    Pros:
    • Astoundingly dynamic sound
    • Excellently harmonic sound picture
    • For the performance area excellent volume control
    • Subwoofer with nimble speed and a good volume
    • Decoderstation 5 with impeccable ports
    • Good finish to all components
