"What would you prefer? A powerful subwoofer or satellite speakers which deliver good sound? With Teufel's Motiv 5 you get both and don't have to miss out! Listening to music on this system is really fun, which isn't a given considering the compact size of the satellite speakers used in this Teufel system (...)."
"This sound system from Berlin-based loudspeaker forge Teufel is vastly superior to its competition: home cinema fans will hardly find a better product in this price range. Everything about the system comes together perfectly. Its successful calibration in particular can't be praised enough. We recommend buying this set without reservation. We could have shortened our review by simply writing: "good, good, good and, again... good." Thanks, Teufel!"

    "An excellent and stylish 5.1 speaker system"
    How it works 02/2010
    "In terms of sound quality, the Motiv 5 impressed greatly, delivering rich and dynamic sound across all frequencies. Bass was distortion and compression free, delivering powerful audio reproduction of explosions and the like, while the satellites handled mid- and high-range frequencies almost perfectly, with depth and subtlety when replicating quieter moments or environmental or ambient sounds."

    "Sales Tip"
    Playblu 12/2009
    "When it comes to first-class loudspeakers in a reasonable price range, Teufel is always the best place to start looking. With 350 watts overall power, the operational area of this surround-sound set isn't limited to small rooms. Even when the Motiv 5 is turned to higher volumes it doesn't suffer from distortion, droning or interference. Its (also separately available) decoderstation handles Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Pro Logic2. The decoderstation's remote control makes it possible to both compensate for delay times between the rear speakers and apply separate volumes to the center speakers, subwoofer and rear speakers. With one coaxial, two optical, and three stereo-cinch terminals, even those using multiple consoles are in good hands with this set."

    • Excellent sound for the price
    • Includes decoderstation

    "For the discriminating listener... an unbeatable price-to-performance value."

    Overall evaluation: Very good (92%)

    "The right mix."
    HardwareLuxx 06/2009

    Teufel has spared no effort to triumphantly ascend the PC speaker system throne with the Motiv 5. The doubt's gone even after a few moments of listening: all their efforts have been worthwhile.

    No other sets offer such a free and natural tweeter as the Teufel sets do. They also manage to find the perfect mix of precise and audiophile moderation as well as pure joy in playing to really awaken the emotions. And listeners, which have favourite songs which you won’t miss anymore, at least not with the Motiv 5.

    "The sound quality totally convinced us."
    Allround-PC.de 12/2008
    Motiv 5 Allround-PC Dezember 2008

    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.

    Sound
    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.

    Conclusion:
    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.

    Allround PC results:
    Pros:
    • Very modern design
    • Excellent worksmanship
    • Elaborate operating instructions
    • Clear highs
    • High performance

  • "The best surround sound system for PCs."
    Casemodding Palace 09/2008
    Casemodding Palace Gold Award

    The Sound
    The subwoofer surprises with really powerful, hard bass and the satellites align the crystal clear sound picture throughout without perceptible distortion or shilly-shallying. The system works together precisely, consistent in play regardless of the application you set it to. Every individual channel is adjustable – from light and easy to bringing the walls down! For me, sound-wise, it's the best surround system in the PC area, as well as the best system I've heard to date!

    Conclusion
    The new Motiv 5 from Teufel definitely doesn't need to hide its light under a bushel! The new version of the Motiv 2 surround sound is a very posh and clear-sounding 5.1 system. The Motiv 5 surprises through clean worksmanship and extremely elegant lacquer. The Motiv 5 trounces the competition in the PC arena just from the technical data, but you can really see the pure power performance in play, as well. By high loud volumes and strong bass the Motiv 5 hits the highs and lows cleanly without straining in the slightest – and also plays beautifully when in a normal sized sitting room with a clear honest sound.

    Pros:
    • Great visuals thanks to the lacquer finish
    • Modern and pleasing design
    • Clear sound picture through the satellites
    • Extreme high performance subwoofer
    • Excellent worksmanship
    • Remote control included
    • Long guarantee period

    Gamezoom Sound Award
    Gamezoom Design Award

    Conclusion
    After nearly two weeks of testing, we've made up our minds about the compact Motiv 5 loudspeaker system: Once again, Teufel has done a great job. The system's elegant subwoofer transforms into a howling monster within seconds, and the five satellite speakers score well with their high SPL capacities and harmonious sound reproduction. Even loudspeaker systems above and beyond the € 800 mark have a difficult time holding their own with this audio gem from the Berlin company. The Motiv 5 produces the right sound for every situation – regardless of whether you’re just gaming, listening to music, or watching an exciting movie.

    Simply put, the Motiv 5 is wicked fun!

    "A small arrangement that has it all."
    Digital Tested 06/2008

    "When we did the test, we were astounded. The stereo sound speakers sound pleasantly round and handle the spatial structures of the room very well. The subwoofer plays a very nice role with regards to the bass sounds and properly dampens the lower regions which would limit the small speakers, otherwise.

    The Teufel set also plays astonishingly well with multi-channel power. The subwoofer power amplifier connection ensures that loud scenes can be played using this compact set without a problem. For enjoying a film within your own four walls the Teufel set can be played in volume regions which far exceed a conventional PC Speaker system. Clear space and defined bass makes every film an experience. But only with the AV Receiver do the small satellites show what's in them. And these clearly win with their sharp dynamics and authority. Thanks to a compact form and closed design the speakers have a good pulse duration, which is noticeable especially with the loud action sequences.

    Teufel offers the right accessories for those who either have no player at home with analogue outputs or no AV Receiver. You can replace the AV Receiver with the Decoderstation 3. This small box offers three analogue stereo inputs, two optical digital inputs and a coaxial input as well. Four DSP-Modi and an integrated Dolby-Digital or DTS Decoder competes the package. This additional model can be purchased alongside the Motiv 5. Given the compact structure and the integrated subwoofer it’s certainly worth your consideration."

    Conclusion
    "It's one small arrangement that really delivers. The Motiv 5 is tailoured and intended to work within the PC area. The integrated amplifier in the subwoofer invigorates multi-channel sound when gaming equally as well as in the home theatre.

    Through the optional Decoderstation 3, the arrangement can be extended to a digital multi-channel system that only requires those who want to play along. The full size sound, powerful support of the subwoofer and the uncomplicated configuration should not only catapult computer enthusiasts into new worlds of sound but also home theatre enthusiasts who consider getting started in the multi-channel world."

  • "A system that will be a benchmark for all future test candidates."
    Hardware Luxx 05/2008
    HardwareLuxx Excellent Hardware

    "Just like its 2-channel sibling, the Motiv 5 immediately won us over with a very transparent and engaging sound. Every note was in place and reproduced with exacting precision.

    This precision was never lost, even when the volume was raised. The system sounded just as relaxed, airy, and unobtrusive as before. In fact, the Motiv 5 is miles ahead of all the surround sound loudspeaker systems we've previously tested."

    "A good pick."
    VIDEO 03/2008

    Conclusion
    "There is no doubt that the 5.1 version of the Teufel Motiv series is a good pick, and not only for people who want to 'pimp' their computer setup. These speakers are as much fun playing back music as they are reproducing full-bodied theatre sound, and it can get pretty loud too. Add a Teufel Decoderstation 3 to the Motiv system for another € 130, and you'll see how your TV's audio output – no matter how feeble – will turn into an awesome AV experience."

Perfect
Perfect Pc speaker system very good low bass but also in contrast to e.g. Logitech good mids and good highs Unfortunately the Teufel can also be paid very well. Because 500€ standard price for a PC loudspeaker system bursts so make a frame. Nevertheless 5 stars for a perfect PC loudspeaker system with higher power reserves that still looks 1A ( high gloss black ) and quasie has no concurrence.
