    "It’s worth every penny"
    MensHealth 12/2013
    “Teufel‘s ‘Motiv 2 Mk2‘ is the updated version of the first class ‘Motiv 2’ system and has already been showered with praise by technical journals. Even if you bear the 400 Euro price in mind, Teufel offers superb workmanship and excellent sound on top of an attractive look for the price. It’s worth every penny, especially when compared with those plastic loudspeakers with their tinny sound you once fished out of the rummage table at the electronics store.

    Both of the 2-way satellites in elegant aluminium frames which work according to a coaxial principle whereby the midrange driver is placed behind the tweeter are responsible – in spite of their tiny size – for producing a clear and detailed stereo panorama. Things really get heavy when the subwoofer with its 250 mm woofer kicks in. Whoever wishes to do so, can use the remote, by means of which the bass can also be regulated, to make the room shake.

    Great: Since Teufel only offers its products via direct order over the internet, you can test the system for up to eight weeks.


    Conclusion: Those who don’t require surround sound at their PC or game console or who simply don’t have the necessary space for it, get an outstanding complete 2.1 system with an impressive sound with the Motive 2 Mk2.

    “The Motiv 2 Mk2 from Teuel is an absolute highlight in the Berliner’s collection."
    Hifi Test 06/2013
    Testbericht - Hifi Test - Highlight
    Testbericht - Hifi Test - Motiv 2 Mk2 - sehr gut
    “Compared to its predecessor, the 2.1 system was designed with noticeably cleaner lines [...]. After all, the Teufel Motiv 2 Mk2 doesn't only want to please PC users, it was also designed to attract glances in the living room. Teufel’s engineers worked very hard and endowed the loudspeaker system with a wide-ranging feature package enabling the Motiv 2 Mk2 to be used just about anywhere. Thanks to various analogue and digital inputs, televisions, CD-players, game consoles or network players can be directly connected to the 2.1 system.”

    “The Motiv 2 Mk2 is a 2.2 system, but, unlike its predecessor, it’s equipped with 6 channel amplifier. This means that each driver in the system can be actively driven. Two channels are responsible for powering the satellites, each with a 100 mm midrange/bass driver and 25 mm tweeter actively filtered by a digital signal processer. [...] The biggest advantage of the midrange driver [...] is the satellites‘ coaxial construction comprised of a tweeter sitting at the centre of the midrange driver. Coaxial systems approach an ideal point source and minimize phase problem between the drivers. “

    “In our listening room, the Teufel set [...] didn’t let anything run it down and triumphed [...] with its dynamic playing range. The small system produces wonderfully balanced music and isn’t constrained to one particular genre. Once the correct levels are set, the system’s fine tuning is impressive: The Motiv 2 Mk2 is especially well adapted to highlight musical nuances without overdoing the analytics.”

    “The fully active 2.1 set puts its best foot forward in the lab. The subwoofer is really in its element at 35 Hz [...]. The small satellites [...] make a convincing show with their balanced frequency response. Even when heard outside of a 30 degree angle, the levels - supported by the impressive dispersion – barely drop off.”

    Conclusion

    “The Motiv 2 Mk2 from Teuel is an absolute highlight in the Berliner’s collection. It has a very restrained look, but when the first tones sound forth from the system, there’s no holding back. Its owner will be utterly spoiled by the direct, honest, and very dynamic sound that makes listening to music and films a joy and transforms PC games into a real experience.”

    "Phenomenal sound at a low price with an elegant look and excellent workmanship.”
    Area DVD 10/2013
    Testbericht - Area DVD - Preisklassen-Referenz
    “It has real power thanks to a 220 watt class D amplifier with bi-amping technology in a  voluminous subwoofer and can hold its own in even larger spaces. Not without reason has Teufel listed  the maximum room size as 30 square meters. Not only the bass, but also the satellites are impressive: each of the 2-way speakers are equipped with coaxial drivers consisting of a tweeter positioned in the centre of the midrange driver – the well known point source principle.”

    "The MT 20/3 [...] Subwoofer has a 250 mm bass driver with a membrane made from coated cellulose. The bass reflex woofer is situated in a solid MDF enclosure, the bass reflex vent is located on the underside of the subwoofer. The ample 22 litre enclosure volume would be enough to compliment a large multi-channel system."

    "The MO 2 F Mk2 satellites have can a continuous power capacity of 50 and a peak capacity of 80 watts. Teufel lists the sensitivity (2.83 V/1m) as 87 dB. A maximum sound pressure of 102 dB/1m can be achieved. The frequency range is from 130 to 22 Hz. The aluminium tweeters measure 25 mm, the midrange drivers 84 mm and have polypropylene membranes. The frequency response is completely linear thanks to waveguide technology.

    The satellite enclosures are made from white matte lacquered synthetic with aluminium elements. Two practical and high-quality stands are included with delivery enabling optimal alignment towards the listening position."

    "The look and feel of the satellites has a solid quality. [...] Teufel did a good job integrating the coaxial drivers, even from an aesthetic perspective – high tech you can see."

    "Acoustically, the Motiv 2 Mk2 really hits the mark. It easily achieves levels that many introductory stereo or surround receiver sets can’t reach and offers a consistently natural, pleasant, lively, and extremely powerful sound. One shouldn’t turn the bass up too high, because it has an enormous performance capacity. The Goldfrapp title ‘Rocket’ remixed by Tiesto evinced a scorching bass reproduction that impressed with its volume, power, depth. The advantages of the subwoofer’s extensive measurements are evident here.

    But even the satellites are impressive. The coaxial drivers give them an enormous impulse fidelity. In addition, they lack typical close-range monitor characteristics. On the contrary, they can be used in a living room without a problem. This gives the Motiv 2 Mk2 great flexibility in terms of possible acoustic uses."

    Conclusion


    "Unfortunately, Teufel did not incorporate a USB soundcard function into the Motiv 2 MK2. Bluetooth that would allow for the wireless communication with a PC or notebook is also missing. Otherwise, the 2.1 system from the Berlin sound experts shines without fail. The maximum is offered acoustically, but also in terms of the construction and aesthetic for € 400. The Motiv 2 Mk2 has a refined appearance and is acoustical capable of just about anything: Power on demand, dimensionality, and high levels along with a cultivated and detailed performance. These are qualities that one isn’t accustomed to in a 2.1 set in this price class. The Motiv 2 Mk2 offers a generally first class value for the money invested.

    What you get with Teufel: Phenomenal sound at a low price with an elegant look and excellent workmanship.”

    "With the first few beats [...] the set makes it clear that we’re dealing with a wolf in sheep’s clothing."
    audio.de 09/2013
    "The look of the subwoofer, which was also adopted by the satellites, is characterized by soft lines and rounded edges. The set is unified by an attractive design that can be easily integrated any modern interior. The subwoofer and satellites with their matte white lacquered cabinets are all complimented by refined aluminium trim.

    The active subwoofer conceals a substantial 25 cm bass driver in its robust wooden enclosure supported by a bass reflex vent on the bottom for a substantial amount of power in the lower frequencies. The subwoofer additionally serves as a  central command centre and powerhouse in one. Unlike the rest of its class, the class D amplifier not only supplies itself with efficient and flawless power, but the two coaxially constructed satellites as well. In these, the tweeter is positioned directly in front of the midrange driver allowing for a compact form as well as a closer approximation of an ideal point source. The aluminium wave guide in front of the tweeter not only looks good, it also prevents the formation of unlovely and sound-distorting reflections.

    As a special feature, Teufel Audio granted the design five amplification stages that guide individual areas via bi-amping technology. In this way, the tweeter and midrange drivers from either satellite have a total of 4 amplification channels at their disposal. According to the manufacturer, these distribute a maximal power capacity of 100 watts to both satellites. The subwoofer has a redoubtable 120 watts to itself. After all, it needs to achieve the 38 Hertz promised by Teufel. A digital DSP located inside the subwoofer takes care of filtering the signals.

    When it comes to connectivity, no limits are set to one’s imagination. From PC/Mac to smartphone, TV/MP3/DVD/Blu-ray players to Playstations, etc. - can all be accommodated. The Motiv 2 Mk2 is especially compelling when used with anaemic-sounding flatscreen TVs, but the sound will make even hardcore gamers sit up and take notice.

    Various connections are located on the back of the subwoofer for the satellites as well as a total of 4 connection possibilities for analogue or digital (optical / coaxial) players. There is even a headphone input and a USB port for smartphones. A switch allows the subwoofer to be accommodated in positions either directly against or away from walls." 

    "With the first few beats from the piece‚ ‘The Krockadile’ from the young London artist King Krule’s album ‘6 Feet Beneath the Moon,’ the set makes it clear that we’re dealing with a wolf in sheep’s clothing. With great authority in the lower frequencies, the subwoofer proves that realistic playback and a precise bass can summon the human apparatus of locomotion to action. The funky strumming from King Krule’s Telecaster comes forth bodily and in fine resolution from the satellites. King Krule’s distinctive and sonorous voice appears in a near life-size scale in the room with a vivid, completely natural and clear delineation.  The transparency in the pieces is especially impressive. Fine nuances seem tangible instead of being subsumed in an amorphous mass as with many cheap sound solutions. The relaxed unravelling of the pulsating bass in the background is equally notable."


    Conclusion

    "The Motiv 2 Mk2 set from Teufel Audio has an impressively fresh and astonishing dynamic with a strikingly robust, clear, and relaxed tone. In close proximity, it sounds agile and present at the same time. Capable of filling even larger rooms in the style of a classic, free standing 2.1 system.

    Markedly neutral without imprinting the source material with its own sound, the set maintains a very differentiated and clearly transparent performance even at low volumes. The Motiv 2 Mk2 doesn’t lose the plot at high volumes, either, remaining in control and free from distortion.

    An additional plus point along with a variety of connection possibilities is flexibility. The set could be used without hesitation for a garden or garage party. It can also be employed with superior equanimity to drive back the sound blast from local folk music festivals with a rousing offering of Panteras’ ‘Strength Beyond Strength’ (from ‘Far Beyond Driven’) for once and all time."

I'm having an incredible amount of fun.
I listen to a lot of music (jazz, rock, classical) and pay attention to high quality. So I wanted the music to sound good in my office, too. The previous loudspeakers of the company B., quite neat, did not meet my requirements anymore. Something new and better had to be done. My music is stored on the PC - all FLAC files, no MP3 - and the DAC is either Audioquest Dragonfly or FiiO X5. This ensures that good quality is also passed on well to the loudspeakers. I bought Teufels because of the many good recommendations, e.g. also from my son. I don't want to say anything more about the sound quality except: the consistently positive judgments are completely correct. A worthwhile purchase, which led to a broad grin on my face. Therefore, at this point only two additional remarks: First: Not only the quality of the loudspeakers is high, Teufel doesn't compromise even on the packaging. Second: A frequently misappropriated aspect is the operating manual. What horrible instructions are often expected of a buyer. Not at all here with Teufels. Even the operating instructions testify to the quality standards that Teufel obviously has. In short: I am completely satisfied and enthusiastic. Thank you. I'll take care of it.

Good service and very fast shipping. Great! To the product: very good, solid workmanship great sound enough power to wake up several neighbors - no connection cable - the speaker cables are a bit short (2x2 meter is not much),at the Concept C it's 15 meters My conclusion: not cheap but worth the money. I'll recommend it to others.

A good boxing purchase
The music, whether pop or classical, sounds convincingly good when the treble and bass are adjusted accordingly. The four connectors for different input sources (coax, optical, chinch etc.) are fully used by me. I have PC, Minidisk and Receiver firmly attached and depending upon input source is switched automatically. I enjoy the excellent sound of the speakers on all devices. I give the missing half star because there is no display when controlling the treble and bass. The standard wiring of the speakers of 2m is too tight depending on the installation location. Here one should offer the customer a longer wiring as standard. Conclusion: a box purchase that you can absolutely recommend!

Very good, sound is the hammer, delivery Top
The workmanship and the design is very good, the sound is really good for such a small 2.1 set, the cable to connect it to the PC is not included is also the remote control small fume cupboard because unfortunately you can always press the volume with a single press only loudly and quietly there would be a stepless press better this is only my feeling, also the function that the device turns off when not in use and if you want to use it again it turns on again. For the delivery round 20 Euro shipping costs sound a lot, but the packaging is once very good such a super packaging I've never had with a product there is nothing drann so damage excluded. So you can only thumbs up for the whole package.

Sensational!
I bought the MK2 for my small office for the PC. What this system does is "madness". Powerful, very balanced, beautiful sound ! Apart from the large dimensioned subwoofer (I knew from the measurements before, but had underestimated them) I wouldn't have any negative comments. And the Teufel can't do anything about that! Well, all in all a super system!!!

What a sound!!!
Granted, it's not the first Teufel speaker set for me. Nevertheless I had looked at the reviews of other customers and test reports before of course. The delivery was incredibly fast, the assembly and connection of the relatively heavy and valuable speakers to my PC was as fast... And what came next almost knocked me off my chair! A rich bass (here I had to adjust down to keep everything on the table in place) even at high volume clear reproduction of high and low sounds... All in all a fabulous sound. More than I'd expected from such a small facility. Clear buy recommendation to all, which were so far still somewhat uncertain. The Teufel Motiv 2.1 set also easily pockets larger systems from other manufacturers.

Bombastic
Forget about the eight-week return policy from the start: Once you get that thing home, you're not giving it back! Compact, super processed, chic design, and an absolutely bombastic sound. All the entrances you could wish for. Simple operation incl. remote control. If you just need a fat sound and no video or Bluetooth stories, this speaker system is perfect for you.

Excellent sound, operation takes getting used to.
I tested the Teufel Motiv® 2 Mk2-Set extensively for one week. Really convincing in sound. Even if you lower the subwoofer to the lowest level, you still have sound almost like in the cinema and at the same time no guilty conscience because of the neighbours. At this point a clear recommendation! But I don't like the range of the remote control. I must not be more than three meters away from my Teufel system, the range is even lower if you sit at an angle in front of the device. It feels a bit like my parents' first color TV 35 years ago, so you always had to aim very precisely to change the program. Besides, it'd be nice to get off the Teufel's back. system would also get an optical feedback if you set highs and lows. The volume and subwoofer control is well solved. Great praise to the customer service, which can also be reached on Sunday evenings. Bravo!
