Design & Worksmanship
Teufel delivers with the Motiv 5 a perfectly finished product; a product with no flaws in its worksmanship. All loudspeakers including the subwoofer have a black mirror finish on the top and rounded corners, solidifying its impression as a very modern system. The mirror finish is a bit different than we expected, being relatively impervious to finger smudges, and is easily cleanable.
The playback of sound is, before all else, precise with the loudspeakers giving clear high tones, which sounds perfect, when in normal ranges as well as by high volumes. The subwoofer displays an excellent bass with regular volumes. If you let that Teufel woofer go, however, it bellows out and fills the entire room, scaring the neighbors too.
The design is quite posh and looks very modern, the worksmanship is absolutely perfect, the adapter and assembly of the loudspeakers is child's play (thanks to the excellent installation instructions), the remote control ensures your comfort when flipping and the most important point – the sound quality – totally astounded us.
