"The Raumfeld Connector is the perfect partner for systems lacking their own network functionality."
audiovision 08/2013
"[...] This little box gives existing music systems that are not network enabled the ability to stream music and access Internet radio. In addition, it has an optical digital output as well as an analog stereo cinch connection and a line input with a sensitivity that can be regulated per software (app), a LAN interface, and USB port. [...] The on and off switch is located in an easy-to-reach position on the top  [...].

Setup and operation of the Raumfeld Connector can be executed via an optional remote control (Raumfeld Controller) or free app for mobile operating systems Android and iOS.

[...] As soon  [...] as the setup assistant is finished, it’s easy to play music from USB storage devices and DLNA servers, accessible computers, and music services like TuneIn, Napster, Simfy, or Last.fm. The current firmware can even handle extremely large music libraries (150,000 files) on network drives and USB devices. As one would expect from a high-end network player, high resolution audio files and gapless playback is supported.

Conclusion
The Raumfeld Connector is the perfect partner for systems lacking their own network functionality. The setup is quickly mastered, operating the device is simple, and the sound impressive."

    "Devices with similar qualities [...] can only be found in a higher price class."
    Fidelity 26.01.2016
    "With the Raumfeld Connector², the Berliners have a network audio player in their product portfolio […] that unites two worlds: The worlds of hi-fi systems and that of music from the internet.”

    "Due to the use of a Cirrus Logic D/A converter chip, the quality of the analog output is very satisfactory. The bass that is delivered to the amplifier is rich and the treble thoroughly nuanced, the stereo image is detailed and is a lot of fun to listen to.”

    "Raumfeld systems offer a well-executed introduction to the world of multi-room streaming. [T]he Berliners offer a good system that can be effortlessly extended and which can continue to be enjoyed in the future. Devices with similar qualities [...] can only be found in a higher price class. Ever the Raumfeld Connector²‘s sound is a winner."

    “It’s fast, easy to operate, sounds good, and is inexpensive to boot."
    Hifi Digital 03/2013
    Testbericht - Hifi Digital - Raumfeld Connector Exzellent
    “Teufel sells its miniature network player for a mere 200 Euros. In exchange, one gets an astonishing array of music possibilities as well as an alluring and extensive introduction into the world of Raumfeld. One namely has the ability to use the Connector 2 in combination with other network players from this manufacturer to build a multiroom connection [...] At first glance, the newcomer appears to be hardly different from its predecessor. The enclosure, however, is compacter. The reason for this is quickly ascertained: The WLAN antenna which was located on the back of the original Connector has been discreetly relocated in the interior of the enclosure. This change earns the new model high marks for style.”

    “The basic structure of the network player hasn’t been changed by Teufel: The streamer plays music from UPnP or DLNA certified network servers along with NAS drives as well as the music library from any PC with Windows. It’s even capable of supporting sound formats [...] from USB storage devices connected to the back. Those who require more can tune in to tens of thousands of internet radio stations via the TuneIn service or can log in to his simfy or Napster account or make use of the analogue input. Should one possess more than one Raumfeld device, these signals can be streamed into other rooms. Unlike that first Connector, the new model can process a full 192 kilohertz.”

    Conclusion

    “It’s fast, easy to operate, sounds good and is inexpensive to boot. With the new Connector 2, Raumfeld gains ground on its main competitors.”

    "Flexible to use and strong on sound – the ultra compact Connector2 delivers on all counts."
    Area DVD 07.06.2013
    Testbericht Logo - iTeufel Air
     "The Connector2 can be integrated into networks with or without a cable. The cable connection is very simple. One simply inserts the appropriate network cable into the corresponding interface on the device and the Connector will be connected to the home network. [...]
    If the Connector is connected to the Wi-Fi, it must be added as a ‘new room.’ For the setup, an Ethernet cable must be attached to the Connector, following which the Raumfeld App can be added. The router password must also be entered. The automated configuration for the Wi-Fi will follow, after which the LAN cable can be disconnected and the Connector2 will be wirelessly connected to the network.”

    "The Connector plays MP3, WMA, WAV, AAC, FLAC, OGG and Apple Lossless. A 192 kHz sampling rate is supported which makes the Connector2 compatible with high-resolution audio files. [...] The Connector creates an impressive-sounding playback with 192 kHz FLAC pieces such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s violin concert (SL Recording) in D minor. The details, clarity, and dimensionality are highly pronounced. The violins as the primary carriers of the song sound brilliant without having too sharp a tone. Even the complex piece ‘La Mer’ by Claude Debussy was captured in a very multifaceted way, including the many small dynamic differences which were accurately produced. The 96 kHz FLAC piece ‘Stop This World’ by Diana Krall has a lively, emphatic quality with a taut bass that is well differentiated in the listening room. Dianas’ voice has a smokey undertone, giving it a charismatic quality.

    Depending on how good the D/A converter in one’s amplifier/receiver is, it’s possible to access the digital connection if this is available. In any case, we recommend a listening test before deciding on an analog or digital connection. Especially with older or inexpensive amplifiers/receivers, the use of the Connector’s very good D/A converter can be the better option. Even when bitstreams are transmitted from Internet radio platforms (TuneIn), the Connector ensures a lively, dimensionally rich sound with a high degree of clarity. The reliability of the transmission is very high. It doesn’t matter whether it’s connected to a LAN or Wi-Fi – interruptions are almost never discerned. This is true for the reproduction of Internet music streams as well as sound files from PCs or servers.”

    Conclusion

    "All told, Teufel offers a highly polished solution that can make hifi systems and older surround receivers fit for the era of modern media. With the exception of Spotify, all relevant music services are integrated and it’s easy to add music resources from PCs, servers, and USB storage devices. Playlists are quickly set up and can then be easily accessed. A free app enables simple handling so that even less experienced users can quickly and easily figure it out. The Connector2 can be connected to the network either with a cable or wirelessly. No Wi-Fi antenna intrudes upon the compact enclosure. The sound that the very compact and therefore easily accommodated Connector makes available is excellent and corresponds with Raumfeld’s claim to offer first-class streaming quality.

    Flexible to use and strong on sound – the ultra compact Connector2 delivers on all counts."

  • Smart Homes
    "Those who are not just looking at comfort when it comes to multiroom, but maximum sound quality as well should take a closer look at Raumfeld."
    Smart Homes 06/2013
    "Raumfeld - the name already sounds superior. [...] Three different stereo speaker systems, a one speaker solution and – last, but not least – the Raumfeld Connector for connecting an existing hi-fi system combine to create a product range that just about satisfies every requirement. All components communicate with each other via accessible WLAN through which they also have access to music libraries available in the network [...]. In addition, Raumfeld naturally has command of Internet radio and various streaming services [...].”

    Conclusion

    "Those who are not just looking at comfort when it comes to multiroom, but maximum sound quality as well should take a closer look at Raumfeld. The system plays nearly all file formats, including many lossless and high resolution varieties, and therefore guarantees maximum music enjoyment with minimum cabling effort.”

    Einsnull 03/2013
    "The Connector [...] plays just about every standard format (MP3, WAC, FLAC, Ogg Vorbis, ASF, WMA, M4A, AAC and Apply Lossless) in all possible sampling rates. It quickly becomes apparent how well thought-out and, above all, universal the Raumfeld system is.”

    "All this is contained within an attractive synthetic enclosure the size of a paperback. The device has two analog outputs as well as an optical digital output and a USB terminal for USB storage devices. With the current version of the Connector, 192 kHz and 24 bit are not a problem.”

    "If you get tired of your own music, you can always make use of a pre-installed and thereby quickly accessible music service. [...] Thanks to a serious Cirrus Logic converter, the Connector produces an acoustic result that is simply outstanding [...]. A device in this or higher price class should try to beat it. One this is for sure: The Raumfeld system is and remains about the most stable and flexible solution for network streaming.”

    Conclusion
    "Whoever’s considering streaming but afraid to commit has run out of excuses. The Raumfeld Connector2 is easy to set up and has a sound so rewarding that anyone will be instantly and over the long run happy with it.”

  • Logo - The HB project
    "I really love the way all kinds of info and settings are accessible from the main screen."
    The HB Project 09/2015
    Setting up

    "Setup is really easy: start up the Raumfeld app and follow the instructions on screen. When that routine is finished you add one or more network shares that hold your music. You just select from a list of (possible) sources. Shown are computers that hold shared volumes or DLNA services."

    The app

    "Pressing the play button next to her name starts playing all her albums but you can also select one album or one track. Along the top of this window you can choose for sorting on album, genres, favorites, composers, recently added, by folder and on track. Tapping the left top corner of the album art shows the playlist, tap the center and the technical data of the music file are showed. Under the transport functions music zones can be activated, grouped and deactivated. The volume knob in the lower right corner also has a fold out menu for tone and balance control. Other sources are selected in the top row, where TuneIn offers plenty internet radio stations and subscription services as Tidal, WIMP, Spotify and Napster by Rhapsody. You can select the line input on any Raumfeld device in your system and play it on the same or any other Raumfeld device. I once said that any remote app for music players works just as fine, you just have to get used to it. The Raumfeld app proved me wrong. I really love the way all kinds of info and settings are accessible from the main screen. And that's even more than I have described here. The app isn’t as solidly robust as that of Sonos or Bluesound, it for instance jumps back to the home screen after short connection losses that occur from time to time. That doesn’t stop me from calling it my personal favorite but please do notice the word personal, for judging user interfaces always is a personal matter."
     
    To sum up
     
    "Comparison with the Squeezebox might seem odd, but it’s still popular despite being out of production for years and there still is an active second hand market. Replacing it with the Connector 2 might be interesting if you have a large music collection or if you want to play 24 bit 192 kHz files. The Logitech Media Server that provides Logitech devices with music is rather slow with large music collections, which is not the case with the Connector. Compared to the Sonos Connect it offers far more memory for storing the music catalogue and 24 bit 192 kHz playback at half the price. So if you have a stereo at or below the quality of my Set 3, the Teufel Raumfeld Connector 2 offers decent quality at a very low price."

    "Inside are the innovations of the connector 2. A faster, more powerful Armada' processor. This will allow for significantly more power for scanning and searching the released media on computers, NAS or external hard drives. The Connector expands along with the converter chip from Cirrus Logic the resolution limit of 96 kHz/24 Bit to a full 192/24.
    This mutates the Connector 2 into a perfect starter kit for all multiroom systems.

  • Logo - Hi-Fi Choice
    "With some really useful functionality, this little German streamer certainly lives up to its name"
    HiFi Choice 2018
    From the electronics wing of German company Teufel, the Connector exists as a standalone source that allows an existing hi-fi setup to be integrated into a wider Raumfeld ecosystem. Like the other products here, it works perfectly well as an add-on streamer in its own right and has some useful functionality.

    The Connector handles all lossless formats - bar DSD - at sample rates up to 24-bit/192kHz. Wired and wireless connectivity is supported and there's an analogue loop-through, which allows it to share an input with an existing source component, while the optical digital output allows you to use it with an external DAC.

    The Connector is supplied with a dedicated app (iOS and Android), which is a slick and effective piece of software. Like others here, it renders the library on the controlling device, which takes longer to compile but is stable once complete. As well as your music library, there is Spotify Connect support and Tidal integration. There's no Bluetooth or AirPlay, but you do get Chromecast support built-in.

    Having completed the simple setup and let the album library compile, the Raumfeld demonstrates more sonic character than some of the other streamers here and whether or not you like the effects of this will play a big part in how you get on with it. Adagio for Tron is presented with a small but appreciable life to the upper mid and treble. This helps the sense of separation and perception of individual instruments, so as the piece builds it can feel a little sharper and harder than some of the other players.

    With the tonally darker recording of Dissolved Girl, the balance achieved is much more satisfying. There is a life and energy to the vocals that keeps them more defined and distinct from the electronics accompaniment that underpins them. Bass isn't the deepest here, but there is a speed and sense of agility to it that creates engagement with the listener. This also ensures the distinctive timing of Sinner in the Sea is delivered with assurance while highlighting the vocals and supporting instruments in a subtle but highly effective way.

    That top-end lift is less effective with Mr Clean, though. Although a superb recording, the Raumfeld has the trumpet coming across as a little hard and sharp in comparison with some of the players here. The recording is presented with a good sense of space and three dimensionality, however. Moving on to hi-res material presents no playback issues, while the low-end agility is once again on hand to caputre the flow of Song of the Stars in a manner that consistently engages the listener. The Chromecast integartion is also effective, although rather more so with Android devices than it is with iOS ones where AirPlay is perhaps a more effective option.

    Testbericht - hifitest.de - Raumfeld Connector
    “The streaming division of Teufel Audio has been around for just three years. Their product range extends from streaming loudspeakers and small routers to NAS systems and controllers – in other words, the whole streaming program. The new Connector 2 extends the existing hi-fi range to include smart streaming abilities.”

    “The Berlin loudspeaker manufacturers and home cinema experts Teufel acquired a highly competent team with Raumfeld GmbH [...]. Since then, smart active speakers with integrated streaming and components that enable an expanded and user-friendly music network have been produced. One thing should be made clear: With respect to network stability, Raumfeld components are ahead of the pack.”

    “While many still shy away from networks, IPs, or UPnP servers, there’s no talk of that here. It doesn’t matter what network structure you have at home or where your music is stored. This little box is like an additional player for your system and can be attached via cinch cable or digital Toslink. The network connection is made via LAN or Wi-Fi. [...] Set up is child’s play. All connectors, Raumfeld streaming speakers, and UPnP devices in the network can be configured via the app and then made available to existing music archives.”

    “Thanks to the very best Cirrus Logic converter, the sound streamed by the connector is truly amazing. Every type of music is played clearly with fine resolution and solid, highly accurate dimensionality. Another device in this or an even higher price class has yet to reproduce this quality. One thing’s for sure: The Raumfeld system was and remains the most stable and flexible solution for network streaming out there.”

    Conclusion
    “Whoever’s considering streaming, but is afraid to commit no longer has an excuse. The Raumfeld Connector 2 is so simple to set up and sounds so good that anyone can expect to derive immediate and long-lasting enjoyment from it.”

If you're looking to add a quality wi-fi streaming device to an existing hi-fi system, the Teufel Connector is a great choice.
