Why we love this product

“It couldn’t be more complete”

"From zero to 60: With the Varion range, Teufel once again pulled a series from up its sleeve capable of transforming the occasional movie watcher to a home cinema enthusiast within a short period of time. With the Blu-ray complete system, the Varion Impaq Streaming, as the flagship combination, there’s a bundle that not only offers fun with movies, but also an easy introduction to the exciting world of multi-room streaming. Sound good? It is! But that’s not all…”

“Since we already tested the Impaq 8000 Blu-ray receiver with the Cubycon ensemble, we got our hands on the same Blu-ray action film we used then, “John Wick” [...].”

"… when it comes to movie sound, it’s not just about making a lot of noise, but rather the creation of a realistic soundstage.”

"This is unquestionably what we experience with the Varion ensemble [...] The short bits of dialogue are crystal clear and the individual sonic details are even more precisely placed. For example, a gun hit out of a hand in a somewhat quiet setting can be acoustically localized exactly there where one would expect it based on the path of flight. Very precise work from both the contract killer on the screen as from the Teufel development team.”

"The oft-employed concept of listening pleasure is not adequate to the agile and passionate way with which the Varion speakers go about their business. All about us, the wheels seem to screech, paint is being scratched and shots fired. Muffled crashes are intermixed with grating collisions that are always precisely embedded in the voluminous soundstage. At the very latest, it becomes clear with the onset of rain at the showdown that the slender Varion speakers have no problem simulating a storm and that only a sprinkler system is missing in order to complete the illusion.”

“When it comes to music, the Varion naturally also shows what it’s made of […].”

"Above all, the 3-dimensional presentation is immediately apparent. In spite of the fact that the speakers are placed relatively close together, the front speakers open up a broad stage right away and supply [...] a great deal of space for the sound to develop.”

Conclusion:


"Versatile, attractive and talented [...]. Teufel sets a high standard with these diverse Varion combinations and succeeds in applying merciless pressure on the competition.”

Note: This test report refers to the Varion Impaq.

Teufel bass: Powerful, punchy and stylishly packaged

This subwoofer is the worthy companion of the speakers. It’s compact, easy-placed form belies truly astonishing power. Equipped with two bass reflex vents, the sub delivers a respectable 43 Hz low end (-3 dB). 106 dB maximum sound pressure levels pushes the bass into the room with plenty of grip and power.

The subwoofer is equipped with an automatic on/off switch as well as volume and phase regulators. This makes it possible to adjust the sound to suit one’s room and personal tastes. Rubberized feet are naturally included.

    The subwoofer US 2106/1 SW knows how to makes its present felt, but it can also show amazing restraint and blend into a supporting role. A 43 Hz low end frequency limit (-3 dB) and a maximum sound level of 106 dB creates an impressive bass experience, yet the enclosure takes up only a small amount of floor space  - just 28 x 28 cm.

    "It’s barely possible to fault the sound produced by the slender speakers."
    Area DVD 29.06.2016
    Testbericht Logo - iTeufel Air
    Music: "The Sun Always Shines on TV“

    "The voices separated themselves well from the centre speaker and had clear contours. Once the song really got going, the clear, well-defined sound was impressive. The Varion set doesn’t produce a cheap “fun sound,” but rather plays in a manner that is serious and complete. The treble range has an impressive 3-dimensionality, comes across as truly free and transparent and is well-integrated with the midrange. The separation of voices and instruments also hardly offer any points for criticism. The synthesizer, the drums as well as the electric guitars are charismatically presented. Morten’s voice is successfully emphasized without pushing the instruments into the background. The US 2106/ delivers a precise and credible bass that isn’t artificially "pumped up.“

    "The focus on the vocal elements is successfully achieved in a masterful manner and yet the instrumental sections are not subordinated. The spatial depth is convincing, the processing of details as well as the definition is excellent for such a set.”

    Film: "Batman, The Dark Knight“ in Dolby TrueHD

    "The shots in the bank’s spacious service area are very forceful, the echoes, conditioned by their environment, are convincingly produced. The opening of the door to the vault and the use of the special drill on the massive vault door are wonderfully accentuated.”

    "The front-surround transitions are cleanly balanced, a very good 3-dimensional expansiveness and a precise localization of small as well as larger effects and effect combinations confirmed the following for us: The Varion 5.1 set can be recommended for challenging tasks like the highly differentiated playback of movie sound at high volumes.”

    “Even in movie sequences in which suspense is built up but in which larger effects are missing, the test ensemble maintained a sensitive, atmospheric and well executed soundstage.”

    2.1 Mode: "California Dreamin‘“ by Diana Krall:

    "And we’ve concluded that the collaboration with the US 2016/1 works very well, even in 2.1 mode. We liked the well-rounded and at the same time clear and direct soundstage. The resolution is immaculate for such a set […].“

    "It’s surprising how good the voices separated from the speakers and distributed themselves in the listening room. We really liked the Varion speakers’ and the active subwoofer’s free, unforced playback.”

    Conclusion:

    "Chic and powerful loudspeakers with flexible placement options, perfect for the present day. It’s barely possible to fault the sound produced by the slender speakers. With very good definition, excellent speech intelligibility and flawless power handling, it’s possible to enjoy music and movies even at high volumes at an astonishingly dynamic and cultivated level. The exceptionally good quality is not only evident in multi-channel playback, used as a 2.1 system, the presentation of stereo material is always comprehensive. That the Varion is offered in many sets, including complete, plug-&-play bundles, is to be praised as this makes it possible for everyone to find the perfect system. From a 2.1 set to 5.1 streaming ensembles with the Raumfeld Connector and Impaq Blu-ray receiver, everything is on offer. The prices are completely reasonable […].“

    Note: The test report corresponds to the Varion 5.1 set.

    "...extremely lively and complex"

    Testbericht - LowBeats - Varion 06/2016
    Television:

    "The TV presenter Jens Riwa was perfectly understandable, and even documentaries with only limited Hi-Fi sound sounded extremely lively and complex."

    Musik:

    "It revealed fine details in recordings and reproduced the voice of Metallica frontman James Hetfield with just the right amount of grain. The Teufel set also had another positive feature when playing the Metallica tracks: the levels are really well balanced."

    Conclusion:

    "We didn't find any real flaws in the Teufel Varion."

    "They were created to improve the quality of television sound for a good price. This is really impressive. The bright sound of the set is not ideal for classical music, but is absolutely ideal for the probable range of use. Thanks to its design, the system is also good for use not only in living rooms and bedrooms, but also in shops. The variability (2.1 or 5.1) is just as great as the practical and robust design. A range of matching accessories makes the Varion package even more flexible and attractive."

Positively surprised and absolutely convinced
For space reasons I had to part with my medium-sized stereo floorstanding loudspeakers. I was looking for a passive 2.1 system, which doesn't consist of two small cubes for the upper frequency range and a subwoofer, then I'm not convinced of it both sonic and optical. I also wanted to continue using my CD receiver, which excluded sound bar systems. The Varion "2.1-Set" had aroused my interest and I really wanted to test it in my own four walls at my conditions, which is why I ordered it spontaneously and got it delivered two days later. I am impressed and super satisfied. For a system of this price class it sounds excellent. Especially for my listening habits (household with small children: either background music, mixed with a lot of background noise, or watching movies in the evening slightly above room volume) the system is absolutely sufficient. Fresh and present sound, clear voices, good basic range, soft and deep bass. Plays pleasantly in the background, without missing the deep tones, but also sufficiently intense if necessary. The subwoofer is located in a corner in the immediate vicinity of the loudspeakers, which hang directly next to the TV set on the wall in an approx. 35m² large living room with a hard floor, many glass surfaces and quite high reverberation time. The discreet appearance and the surprisingly good sound don't make me regret this purchase. It's just a pity that the VESA mounting system for the "flying" mounting of the speakers to the TV is quite price-intensive. Otherwise, I'd have ordered that too.
