You've always wanted to know what's behind the terms and designations of the audio world? Then take a look at our audio glossary. Here you will find a short and concise explanation of, for example, bi-amping, bi-wiring, impedance and ohms.
In stereo reproduction, at least two sound sources are reproduced in such a
way that the listener gets a spatial impression and a stage is built up in
front of the listener. To ensure that the sound reproduction of stereo
loudspeakers can be technically realised well, stereo recordings have also
been made in the studio for several decades. Two microphones record the
different signals for each channel. In the recording studio, the differences
in running time and the levels are then mixed and adjusted in such a way that
the sound source is no longer directly perceptible and the impression is
created that the sound originates halfway between the loudspeakers. Experts
speak here of the so-called phantom sound source. The result:
if the stereo speakers are set up correctly, you will experience the real
concert feeling in your home and if you close your eyes, you might think you
are standing right in front of the stage.
Whether you're a fan of large 3-way stereo loudspeakers or you're a fan of small, chic satellite speakers, we have a wide selection of
speaker sets and stereo speakers that will enhance your four private walls not
only visually but also in terms of sound because we put your sound first. Our
range includes variously powerful complete stereo systems for rooms of
different sizes. Starting at 10 m², over 25 m² up to 40 m². Depending on your
needs, we also offer complete stereo systems with a separate subwoofer or
record player. You will also find ready-to-play stereo systems with matching
integrated amplifiers. If you want something even more compact, our Teufel
streaming speakers, such as the STEREO L and STEREO M with integrated
amplifier and app function, are just the thing for you. Especially if you are
interested in expanding to a multi-room system. You can find more information
about this in our
For easy connection to the TV, we recommend our ULTIMA 40 AKTIV with HDMI
connection and expansion options to a 4.1 hi-fi system thanks to wireless
EFFEKT wireless speakers and the active subwoofers of our T series. For
convenient wireless music transmission, Bluetooth is also integrated into all
our active speakers.
If you like it powerful and massive, you will not get around
good floor-standing speakers for the TV or music corner. For
stereo sound, it is important that both speakers form a homogeneous sound
team, which is why floor-standing systems are best recommended for home use.
When both speakers are optimally arranged, the sound image results in a
coherent, clean sound regardless of the volume or the sound source. Music and
sound reproduction is particularly detailed and powerful with
3-way speakers, as these are capable of reproducing the entire frequency range. With
smaller speakers, such as bookshelf speakers, the speakers can reproduce low
tones, but do not reach subwoofer level. With small micro speakers, such as
our CONSONO or CUBYCON speakers, you even need an active subwoofer to
reproduce the complete sound spectrum. You can also distinguish between
active speakers. When
using passive speakers, you need a separate amplifier that supplies
the necessary power to operate your speaker boxes. How many watts of output
power the amplifier should have (measured in RMS or sine) depends on the
continuous power handling and the impedance (resistance measured in ohms) of
You will find these values with our speakers under the technical data or in
the operating instructions. Of course, we also offer
with amplifiers as a set.
of the KOMBO series, you have the additional advantage that the amplifier has
a headphone output and a phono input, so you can also use record players
without a preamplifier. Dual record players also offer models with an
integrated preamplifier, so that you can connect them directly to the AUX
input. We also offer smaller, coordinated loudspeaker systems ( compct systemsn) so that you don't have to do any tedious
research or pay attention to any
technical data. With active loudspeakers, in contrast to
passive loudspeakers, the amplifier is already integrated into the speaker and
therefore no additional device is necessary for the set-up. Another advantage
of our active speakers is the connection options. Each of our active speakers
has a separate AUX input and selected models, such as the ULTIMA 40 AKTIV,
also have an HDMI ARC connection for the TV, as well as a Toslink connection
for connecting your computer's sound card. In addition, Bluetooth is
integrated as standard in all our active stereo speakers, and for wireless
music streaming via WIFI you can use smart speakers such as the compact
HOLISTEN, which can be operated via an app on your smartphone or voice control
with Amazon Alexa. For stable Bluetooth connections, we have also made sure
that all Bluetooth speakers support at least the 4.0 standard.

Setting up stereo speakers correctly is relatively easy. All you have to do is
observe the so-called stereo triangle and, in the case of a
shelf or micro speakers, the set-up height. Of course, you don't have to pay
attention to the height of floor-standing or column speakers because they are
already at the perfect height. As a rule of thumb, the distance between the
front speakers and the seating position should be about the same. At best,
each angle in the stereo triangle should be 60 degrees. If you use smaller
speakers or bookshelf speakers, you should position them at a height of about
1.50 m or at ear level of your final seating position.
