    "For an all-in-one system that clearly aims at surround sound, the front speakers showed real stamina in the stereo mode."
    video 03/2014
    "The Berliners integrated two subwoofers […] in the two floorstanding speakers – the meaning behind the slogan, "Hear two subwoofers but see none.“ […]

    The flexible design of Teufel’s exceptional Teufel H 600 allows for two different operating modes: The user can connect the passive mid and upper ranges to a receiver and the bass via the subwoofer […] outputs. […] The owner can also decide to operate both front systems with a loudspeaker cable for each channel just like a normal speaker set. […] It’s a very practical. 

    The H 600 C centre has the same driver construction as the H 600 F's midrange.  […] Like the centre, the compact surround speakers are designed as 2-way systems in sealed enclosures. […]

    Listening test: Solid performance


    The extraordinarily broad dispersion and lively sound ideally suits its larger sound image and the rich, clean bass. […] For an all-in-one system that clearly aims at surround sound, the front speakers showed real stamina in the stereo mode. […] With [the surround sound speakers], the sound grew in all directions along with the stability of the sound image while the tonality and clarity remained unchanged. To top it off, the speech intelligibility was top for this price class.

    Conclusion


    [A] perfectly tuned 5.2 set that delivers a powerful and dynamic impression with an astonishing degree of neutrality in every discipline.”

    "The Teufel set presents music on an imaginary stage that is sophisticated and precisely dimensioned. There is not much to criticize."
    trenddokument 03/2014
    What one sees at first glance: These loudspeakers mean business when it comes to cinema sound at home. Two full-sized floorstanding speakers with large sideways-radiating woofers. An equally seriously dimensioned centre speaker and two serious surround speakers form the basis for commanding cinema sound within one’s own four walls.

    When one sees: [...] that a powerful amplifier slumbers in each column. Slumbers? Only until needed. Each amplifier produces an actual 150 watts which mobilizes the attached fully 25 cm large bass drivers to a respectable performance. [...] The Berlin developers invested a similar amount of precision work in the midrange and tweeters. Offset bass drivers in the enclosures ensure that a more balanced propagation time reaches the listening position and therefore a faultless sound stage. This is more than just grey theory: It works extremely well. The dipoles for the surround sound also render an acoustic ideal with a diffuse sound that perfects the three-dimensional impression.

    Elegantly packaged

    [...] The elegant, matte white enclosures make the just 1.15 m tall columns inconspicuous. Magnetic grilles mean that no ugly holes disrupt the visual impression when the grilles are removed. This allows one to realize cinema in the living room without compromise [...]

    [...] The Teufel speakers knock out a bass that is a true joy. [...] The Teufel set presents music on an imaginary stage that is sophisticated and precisely dimensioned. There is not much to criticize.

    Conclusion


    [...] Extremely high performance, cleverly designed, and yet easy to integrate into living spaces: It fulfills three wishes at once. [...] With a set price of just € 1,700, a true recommendation.

    "The frequency range does not fall precipitously and evinces levels in the bass that bass reflex enclosures cannot match."
    audiovision 02/2014
    Testbericht audiovision Heimkino-Lautsprecher Theater 6 sehr gut
    Testbericht - audiovision - Highlight*

    Technology


    The hybrid construction has several advantages: The bass driver not only reacts with great sensitivity to the connected amplifier and its damping factor, the wiring is not unimportant as its length impairs the damping effect and therefore the amplifier’s control over the movements of the bass driver. In addition, one can do away with voice coils that sit in the crossover of passive loudspeakers and worsen the damping effect. Last but not least, the developer can use the electronics in the speaker to adjust the frequency response of the bass drivers with an active filter in order to achieve the desired result. [...]

    A switch allows for the conversion of the deep bass section into a subwoofer that gets its signals via the cinch input from the A/V receiver. The low-pass frequency then needs to be set on the receiver. Thanks to sideways-radiating bass drivers, the front speakers can be given a narrow form. [...]


    Surround sound quality


    [...]
    At first glimpse, the bass section disappoints with a low end of just 50 Hertz. A second look, however, reveals an effect typical of sealed enclosures: The frequency range does not fall precipitously and evinces levels in the bass that bass reflex enclosures cannot match. The set delivers the proof for this phenomenon when it vigorously gives the “minefield” scene from “Ice Age : The Meltdown” its best. The steam geyser explosions sound bone dry, the debris from part of the collapsing glacier rumble in the walls of the stomach – this is what makes home cinema fun. And it continues with the perfect reproduction of finer details and dimensionality with Teufel’s Theater 6 Hybrid: [...] Instruments and voices are, of course, present in the room. One never needs to strain in order to hear what’s being said. The Theater 6 Hybrid is also a set that really draws one into the action.

    Stereo sound quality

    The main Teufel speakers expertly and seamlessly take over where the excellent home cinema experience left off: Whether celebrating the layered vocals of [...] Little River Band’s “Lonesome Loser” or Bette Midler in “Wind Beneath My Wings,” pure emotion is the result. It was incredibly enjoyable to listen to music with these loudspeakers. The unhindered dynamic and the immensely musical playback along with a fantastic sound image are truly addictive.

    "[…]Teufel delivers a thoroughly successful system with the Theater 6 Hybrid, which delivers natural and pleasant playback with movies and music"
    Audio Test 01/2014
    Testbericht Audio 6 5.2-Heimkino
    " […] With the Theater 6 Hybrid, Teufel again makes use of integrated subwoofers and expands the system with dipole speakers.  […]

    The most obviously unusual feature of Teufel’s hybrid series is the fusion of an active subwoofer with the front speaker, which makes this system partially active. This way of doing things has multiple advantages. Obviously, this eliminates the need for a separate place for an often space intensive subwoofer. The integration of the technology with the living space is thereby markedly improved. […]

    The adjustable high-pass filter is unusual. This doesn’t determine the crossover frequency for the subwoofer, but rather the lower separation frequency. With a choice between 20 and 50 hertz, the bass reproduction can be adjusted to the room conditions or to sensibilities of one’s own or the neighbor’s ears.  […]

    In terms of workmanship, the set scores points, especially with the enclosure. Teufel allowed for no untidiness in this regard. The matte white lacquer makes a sleek and high-end impression. Only the loudspeaker terminals could perhaps be improved. The contacts are solid and gold-plated, yet the caps on the clamps are made from a synthetic. These are also compatible with banana plugs. Cable clips are excluded.

    The loudspeaker’s gentle, balanced character impressed during the listening test. No part of the frequency range experienced big spikes up or down. […] There is a slight emphasis on the upper ranges which creates a soundstage with a relaxed and airy quality. Certain percussive elements are also slightly, but not unpleasantly emphasized. […] Both bass drivers deliver a solid foundation that only lets up in the absolute deepest ranges.

     […] Otherwise, Teufel delivers a thoroughly successful system with the Theater 6 Hybrid, which delivers natural and pleasant playback with movies and music while the system’s integrated subwoofer expands the lower range. Keep it up!”

    "A range of instruments and elements were accurately reproduced and it was consistently possible to locate their relative positions in the front."
    blulife 03/2013
    “With the Theater 6 Hybrid ‘5.2 Set,’ the company Teufel from the capital city has brought a 5.2 home cinema set with two integrated active subwoofers to the market, […] which allows for the inclusion of a home cinema set in even smaller rooms since no space is required for separate bass drivers. This set is, however, also recommended for larger rooms up to 50 m².

    Features

    The ensemble consists of two floorstanding front speakers, each with a 250 mm bass driver and a 150 watt amplifier for use with the subwoofer, which, according to internal company specifications, reaches all the way down to 38 Hz. […] What’s a little out-of-the-ordinary: The absence of bass reflex vents. The efficiency thereby lost is compensated for by a larger internal volume and supplemented by a DSP. […] For the back channels, the company Teufel offers a pair of dipole speakers, the same that were already used for the Theater 4 Hybrid Set (note: previous model/d.Red.).  […] In this way, a nicely diffuse soundstage is created in the back which gives the impression of being in the cinema […]
    In terms of aesthetics, the set has a few things to offer. The front speakers were attractively lacquered. The enclosure itself was made from MDF, but is very solid and evinces faultless workmanship. […]

    In general, the sound of this surround set is very natural and neutrally rendered. […] A range of instruments and elements were accurately reproduced and it was consistently possible to locate their relative positions in the front. […]

    Conclusion

    The Teufel Theater 6 Hybrid '5.2 Set‘ is an excellent alternative to a multichannel loudspeaker set that dispenses with the need for separate subwoofers, yet delivers extremely powerful bass. It’s suitable for smaller as well as larger rooms and the Berliners managed a sound reproduction that is consistently harmonic and natural in surround as well as stereo mode and accurately renders an extensive dynamic. ”

    Testbericht Heimkino Heimkino-Lautsprecher Theater 6
    “Although Teufel Audio is a proven expert in the manufacture of active subwoofers, the Berliner’s have this time refrained from including an external active subwoofer. [...] The trick? The Berlin technicians included a subwoofer driver in each of the slender loudspeaker columns which are powered by an integrated amplifier.”

    “Very good workmanship, polished enclosures with lacquered fronts, ornamental driver rings made from real metal and magnetic loudspeaker grilles accompany all loudspeakers in the Theater 6 Hybrid series.”

    “The recessed tweeter compensates for the time lapse with the midrange driver so that all tones reach the listener’s ear at the same time. The moulded waveguide and the shape of the bass/midrange driver membranes optimize the dispersion […]. All loudspeaker drivers in Teufel’s Theater 6 Hybrid are technically and acoustically identical which positively influences a homogenous dispersion behaviour.”

    “The main loudspeakers deliver a deep bass in a stereo setup with a great deal of precision. The transition to the midrange is perfect. No gaps can could be noticed.“

    “The Theater 6 Hybrid imparts an exquisitely lively sound image and perfectly transports the enthralling atmosphere of cinema blockbusters like ‘Iron Man 3‘ to the home cinema. The speech intelligibility is excellent even at very high volumes. The diffuse sound image created by the dipole speakers seems to expand the borders of the listening area. Homogenous tuning means that the Theater 6 Hybrid can be recommended without hesitation for the playback of multichannel music.”

    Conclusion
    “With the brand new Theater 6 Hybrid, Teufel presents an extraordinarily exciting product that will appeal equally to music and home cinema fans. The loudspeakers are eye-candy for any living room and will win you over with their harmonious and dynamic sound.”

I've been looking for white speakers for a long time and found this product with Teufel. These fit harmoniously into our furniture. The flat center under our 55" TV looks great. I operate the surround speakers with a Denon avr-x1200w. The sound, whether in movies or music, is excellent. The two subwoofers in the stand loudspeakers lay a bass carpet in our living-dining room that gives you goose bumps. Excellent work by Teufel. I can only recommend the system.

Outstanding product - service that can be optimised
To start with: The product exceeded my expectations by far and would certainly have earned 5 stars. There was a deduction for the service! The product: Top-class sound quality, especially for the two active floorstanding loudspeakers. A superb spatial sound reproduction, even in stereo mode. For all who are looking for a full hybrid system for home cinema and music enjoyment a very good choice. 5.2. sound, without any additional space requirement for the subs, is also an optical and spatial statement. The rears in the form of dipoles are also convincing, the spaciousness is enormous. All in all, a full sound backdrop is created that cannot be ignored and that one likes to listen to for a long time. Cinema can't do this any better. The service: One of the two floorstanding loudspeakers had a defect in the automatic switch-off. No big deal, after a phone call, an exchange was initiated. The only problem was that the shipping company in question had delivery time windows within the working hours, so you had to stay at home. Unfortunately twice, because the driver had no order to take the old goods with it during his first visit. Reason: Communication problem, because Teufel leaves it to the customer to address the appointment and then to report again to pass this on so that an exchange can be arranged. Therefore three working days should lie between date arrangement and actual date, which one had not told me however. Unfortunately, I was then also left with the further communication with the deliverer - so I had a mediating role between Teufel and service partner. But that's not all: The forwarding agency Jentsch, partner of Teufel, is also unreliable, unfriendly and difficult to reach, so that the action cost me a lot of time and nerves. For a product not traceable for this price. Please look for another forwarding agency and simplify the procedure for the customer, otherwise we will buy elsewhere soon.

Power armor with finesse
As a stereo system, these speakers have been able to play for a week now and have had to deal with classical baroque to modern to synth pop. These speakers can handle these styles of music and what lies in between effortlessly. I would like to mention that they did not perform optimally in my opinion for the first few days. I couldn't shake off the impression that there was a hole/valley in the sub-layer. Recalibrating several times and changing the position of the left and right speaker (sub beam direction) didn't solve the problem until I came up with the idea to connect the satellite parts in the opposite phase. This sounded perfect, sub and sattelites now connect seamlessly with each other, I suppose it had something to do with the phase. It is my first introduction to a closed subwoofer system and I can only praise it. The basses are tight, without reverberation and I think they go deeper than the indicated 38 hz. In short, ideal for classical music, very good for listening music and you will be blown off your socks at house and relatives :-) What I notice in the foreground is the enormous detail in the tweeter section, without sounding tinny or mood, these units provide fantastic details. In short, the soundstage that this system delivers is of exceptional quality. As a cinema system extremely satisfied. The dipole (behind speakers) emitters perform it to an excellent spatial feeling in movie tracks to put down. The center speaker gives voices with the necessary detail display, this supplemented with the front speakers/sub stands and you wonder why you have not previously considered / purchased such a system. The only downside I would like to mention is that the carrier should have sent a message with a delivery date, luckily I was at home when they delivered.
Very good
You should only know that you need an extra chinch cable for each sub.
