"Compact elegance and enormous acoustic performance – that's the motto that the Teufel Motiv 10 operates under."
hdworld-mag.de 05/2009

Tonally neutral, enormously dynamic, elegant yet compact: the Teufel Motiv 10 is full of contradictions, and that at a fair price. The interplay between the satellites and subwoofer works for a dynamic, room-filling surround sound with a homogenous, consistent sound: Teufel delivers a equally solid sound performance and visual aesthetic with this compact 5.1 set of speakers.

    A 1000 SW vorne Schwarz

    Subwoofer A 1000 SW

    Although the A 1000 SW subwoofer has borrowed its basic design from its predecessor, the A 100 SW, it is unparalleled in every other aspect.

    The amplifier features 250 Watts RMS power (as opposed to 100 Watts), its volume was increased to 37 litres, and the diaphragm surface expanded to twice its previous size. The change in quality is remarkable. The A 1000 SW reproduces sounds louder, better and with more depth. The trapezoidal shape remained so the woofer can elegantly take its place in a corner of the room. The positive side effect of this placement means higher sound pressure levels!

    Satellite Speaker MO 10 FCR

    This miniature satellite speaker, with its mere 1.9-litre volume, is the main player in the Motiv 10 series. It can be used as front, centre and rear loudspeaker, linearly reproducing all frequencies between 110 and 22,000 Hz. Each speaker can still achieve a maximum sound pressure of 97 dB (at a distance of 1 m).

    The entirely new chassis with 80 mm aluminium diaphragms driven by extremely powerful and high-energy density neodymium magnets makes it possible to create this extremely high dynamic range. The cooled voice coils capable of handling high loads provide the woofer with this tremendous range. A 25 mm silk dome with a neodymium magnet faithfully and purely reproduces the highest of frequencies.

    The extremely durable aluminium cabinet of the speaker features a connection panel with gold-plated and shielded terminals to prevent short circuits. In this manner the speaker fulfils the high requirements of the CE standards.

    Dipole Speaker MO 10 D

    The full range MO 10 D dipole speakers are designed for the rear channels of the Motiv 10 Cinema Set. These ultra-compact rear effects speakers work together with the above-mentioned 80 mm woofers and 25 mm tweeters as a pair: two chassis are on the front and rear of each speaker. In this manner the miniature dipole speakers can even be placed directly next to the wall and still achieve an extremely compelling home theatre sound experience that users of conventional direct-radiating speakers could only dream of.

    The new, CE-conformant connection panel accepts cables up to 2.5 mm² in diameter, and the supplied wall mount provides this marvellous compact speaker with the means for excellent positioning on the wall.

    Area DVD 03/2009

    Sound
    With the new sound formats DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD: with Baraka (DTS-HD Master Audio, 5.1) the Motiv 10 places you right in scene (Chapter 2, running time 3:33). Acoustically the tone result is very balanced and there’s no distortion in the sound picture. The active subwoofer offers enormous power at any point, but doesn't push itself to the front. It's fascinating to listen in the space that the Motiv 10 creates.

    In the third chapter (running time 6:23) the Motiv 10 scores with enormous acoustic detail. Fine musical details in the background are well integrated into the overall acoustic picture. The vocal elements and the powerful woofer range presents an intensive overall experience, which is supported by the natural space around the room. Celine Dion's Las Vegas concert Blu-ray "A New Day" impresses with the excellent Dolby TrueHD tone – we were curious if the Motiv 10 could clearly utilise this uncompressed format. In the title song it worked very well – very clear, always exactly defined design and the charismatic vocal playback clearly displayed the benefits of TrueHD as well as the handling of the less dynamic differences.

    During Celine Dion's interpretation of "The Power of Love", the Motiv 10 displayed the proper mix of sensitivity and emphasis of its task: to present a realistic and captivating sound. The active subwoofer does a very good job and impresses with its quick pulse conversion.

    Conclusion
    Teufel has, with the Motiv 10, an equally powerful-sounding as optically aesthetic and compact 5.1 loudspeaker system in their program…that through its neutral tone, excellent dynamics and enormous homogeneity amazes. The two M 10 D dipoles deliver in the surround sound area a wide, deep and lively backdrop. Through the mature, differenced interpretation the powerful levelled ensemble also gets points in the critical stereo area. The elegant optics and the very good worksmanship only expands our impressive thoughts. Only the deep ranges of the A 1000 SW could be more pronounced.

    Pro:
    • Accurate output levels
    • Very balanced and exact tone
    • Practically unnoticed transfer between the satellites and the subwoofer
    • An intensive surround sound backdrop
    • Homogenous, encapsulated sound
    • Fine dynamics are absolutely amazing
    • For 1200 @ the Motiv 10 handles the requirements of the HD format excellently
    • Impeccable finish

    "A high achiever of the upper class."
    Heimkino 12/2008+01/2009

    Sound
    We're amazed that the super compact housing volume of the small Motiv 10 boxes play this big – as we experienced with the movie "i, Robot". The tunnel scene of the robot army against Will Smith was brought right into our test cinema. Here, before everything else, the homogeneity of the surround sound performance and the precise bass support from the subwoofers catapult us directly into the experience.

    Conclusion
    The Teufel Motiv 10 turns out to be both sound- and optic-wise an intelligently combined multichannel system. The flexible installations and integration possibilities as well as the extremely fair price/performance ratio makes the Berlin group a high achiever in the upper class.

    Pros:
    • Seamless surround sound
    • Potent subwoofer
    • Many possibilities
    • Upper class

    Test results: excellent (1,0)

    Tonally neutral, enormously dynamic, elegant and compact. The Teufel Motiv 10 handles its apparent contradictions admirably, and that at an extremely fair price.

Teufel delivers an equally sound and visually aesthetic performance with the compact Motiv 10 5.1-speaker set.

    Subwoofer:
    The bass box (subwoofer) is the largest loudspeaker in this Teufel set, but is planned for installation in a corner somewhere. This both saves space and is inconspicuous. Outside of that you can also hide the subwoofer behind some plants or behind a curtain, without damaging the sound quality.

    Sound quality
    In spite of the really quite small measurements of the Motiv Cinema 5.1, it plays with an enormous sound. The subwoofer goes deep and presents extreme film explosions without problem, without any distortion to worry about. The sound in the room was super. Tone effects could be easily followed, and films sound totally realistic.

    Conclusion:
    The Teufel Motiv 10 Cinema 5.1 impresses not only by its looks. The Teufel developers have succeeded in drawing balanced sound out of chic small boxes. That the subwoofer is somewhat bigger doesn't matter – just stick it in the corner.

    Pros:
    • Good sound
    • Less required space
    • Subwoofer for corner placement
    • Wall attachments included

    • Sound quality: 2,30

    T-Klasse stereoplay highlight

    Our reviewers were amazed at the balanced response of this system, even during multi-channel playback. Live concerts such as Paolo Conte's "Nel Cuore del Amsterdam..." were so much more expressive, authentic and nuanced than one would expect from a system in this price category. In addition to the mighty subwoofers, this was due in no small part to the dipole speakers that created an impressive sense of space.

    The conclusion is obvious. When it comes to visually appealing systems for less than 1000 euro, the Teufel Motiv 10 has set a new standard for future speaker sets.

    Rating
    Elegant aluminium surround sound set with dipole speakers. Balanced, open frequency response with impressive sub-bass and fantastic spatiality. Very affordable.

    • Sound: Top of class

    • Price/performance: Outstanding
