What HiFi

This complete home cinema speaker package gives you more box for your buck (thanks to the full complement of surround speakers) but for less money. Admittedly, this is just a speaker system rather than an all-in-one, but it's still an impressively modest price tag for what you're getting.

Chunky fronts come packing subs
And this is no ordinary 5.1 system. The Teufel Theatre 3 Hybrid offers a centre channel and two rear speakers alongside two floorstanding front speakers that come packing integrated active subwoofers – making a 5.2 system of sorts.

If by some rather large oversight you had managed not to notice the make-up of this system, rest assured the penny will drop when you lift up the front speakers: standing 94cms tall, the Teufel M320F floorstanders weigh in at a very hefty 18.5kg, incorporating as they do a 150 Watt amplifier to drive that 20cm sub.

The rear and centre channels follow more traditional lines, and the system as a whole looks smart and nicely finished – as we've said, it's a lot of kit for the cash.

Detailed, fast and cohesive sound
Given a few days to run in, the Teufel produces a detailed, fast and cohesive sound. Watching the Blu-ray of Iron Man, special effects sound crisp and open, while the centre channel delivers clear dialogue. [...]

The Teufel Theatre 3 Hybrid is a substantial and stylish system with enough speed, cohesion and excitement to warrant consideration.

Pros:
• Speakers carry their bulk well
• Integrated sub design is neat
• Fast and cohesive
• Good insight

Specifications

  • M 320 F vorne mit Abdeckung Wenge

    Hybrid Speaker M 320 F

    The slender M 320 F may look like a conventional column speaker, but it offers so much more. An active/passive hybrid design with an integrated subwoofer amplifier, this compact column speaker functions as both an active subwoofer and a passive stereo speaker at the same time.

    The 130 mm fibreglass woofer and 25 mm neodymium tweeter are responsible for the stereo sound. With the help of a side-mounted 200 mm subwoofer, the M 320 F has a full-range frequency response with powerful sub-bass.

    The remarkable bass response of this speaker is made possible by a separate 150 W amplifier intended solely for the subwoofer channel. The tweeter/mid-range driver module is passively decoupled for frequencies above 120 Hz. An acoustic partition in the cabinet prevents the drivers from interfering with each other.

    By using two of these column speakers, Theater 3 Hybrid owners benefit from having two subwoofers in one system.

    The universal design of the integrated active subwoofer allows it to be connected to the ‘Sub Out’ of your AV receiver or the speaker terminals of your stereo amplifier. In any case, this relieves your amplifier/receiver from bass duties and frees it up to concentrate more on the other frequency ranges. With a pair of M 320 F speakers, you will dramatically improve the quality of the bass response in your stereo system.

    These two column speakers provide Theater 3 Hybrid owners with the advantage of having two subwoofers in one system. A three-stage volume selector switch allows you to select how much bass is split between the subwoofer and tweeter/mid-range drivers and thus match the system to your listening environment.

    M 320 C vorne mit Abdeckung Wenge

    Centre Speaker M 320 C

    This centre channel speaker is the ideal addition to the M 320 F front speakers.

    This speaker – equipped with two 130 mm fibreglass woofers, a metal phase plug and one 25 mm neodymium tweeter – provides wide dispersion of dialogues and speech. This is an essential aspect for listeners not situated in the ideal ‘sweet spot’.

    With its maximum power rating of 160 W, this centre channel speaker can be used at high volumes.

    M 320 R Ausbauset Wenge

    Pair Rear Speaker M 320 R

    The rear channels in the Theater 3 Hybrid system are handled by the M 320 R speakers. This speaker – available as a classic bookshelf unit with a universally compatible impedance of 4 to 8 ohms – contributes to the rear of the sound field.

    By using the same drivers as the three front speakers – 130 mm fibreglass woofer and 25 mm fabric dome tweeter – the surround sound of this system is highly balanced.

    With a maximum power rating of 80 W, this system has sufficient reserve capacity to be operated in rooms of up to 35 m2.

    Great for your ears... and your wallet!
    Area DVD 06/2009

    The Theater 3 almost completely overwhelms with a natural tone, room space, precise bass, punctilious high ranges and stability levels. Total overall score for sound in relation to the price class – perfect.

    Overall conclusion
    No one should wonder why Teufel has such a prominent position in the German loudspeaker market after listening to the Theater 3.5.2 Hybrid system. Such a natural tone, large and small, precise dynamics absolutely spot on, enormous stability levels and commanding sound…there's so little that's critical to say.

    Your ear and your wallet can be thrilled, because for your money you get a complete full sound ensemble which doesn't shrink to render complex music playback – rather, it successfully lets it loose without difficulty. Thanks to a dynamic surround sound connection and the strong but never artificially overplayed bass tones, your film enjoyment is also an exceptional experience.

    The practical equipment is a joy as well. Thanks to its compact size, then Theater 3 can also easily be situated and installed in smaller sitting rooms.

    • Large as well as fine dynamics astounding for this price class
    • Natural tonality
    • Clear and astounding multi-faceted high ranges
    • Assertive, sound and accurate bass playback
    • Wonderful connections of the mid-range areas
    • High stability levels
    • Exceptionally affordable price


    A first class 5.2 loudspeaker set with low space requirements!

    "Price / Performance ratio 10 / 10 stars plus an extra star for outstanding quality at a very affordable price."

    Theater 3 Hybrid, a surprisingly affordable 5.2 speaker system with a 150W subwoofer amplifier built into each of the floor-standing M 320 F front speakers, allowing each column to act as a passive stereo speaker and active sub simultaneously.

    "The excellent craftsmanship of the Theater 3 Hybrid is just as impressive as its top-notch sound. It's difficult to imagine another system offering this much performance with a size this compact and a price tag this low. Most of all, it’s the intense, distortion-free bass at high SPLs and the nuanced details that leave us astounded."

    Conclusion:
    The Theater 3 Hybrid is indisputably an impressive product launch from Teufel. In the 2.2 scenario, this technically sophisticated system makes music listening a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Add to that the centre and rear speakers and you get a fully cinematic home theatre system that can soar to the highest levels (neighbours permitting!) – without ever neglecting the quieter moments. Of course we don’t want to go overboard with our praise, but this certainly is a system that will provide ongoing listening pleasure. And it's available for a very fair price.
