Fancy a soundbar that's THX certified? Look no further than this impressive setup from Teufel.
Teufel Audio presents its successor to the multiple award-winning Cinebar 51 THX: The new Cinebar 52 THX. In addition to fulfilling the stringent criteria for THX certification for cinema sound, the new soundbar from the Berlin hi-fi manufacturer offers Dolby Virtual Speaker technology and multiple connections for audio and video sources. A more compact home cinema system at this level of quality is simply not available anywhere.
Regarding the Cinebar 52 THX’s many advantages over standard soundbars, product manager Alexander Paul explained:
“It allows you to enjoy the director’s cut every time. With the Cinebar 52’s THX certification, we guarantee that movies sound just like the director intended. In addition, the use of Dolby Virtual Speaker technology creates a realistic surround sound atmosphere from a single loudspeaker enclosure.”
The Cinebar 52 THX had big shoes to fill. Its predecessor, the Cinebar 51 THX was the world’s first soundbar with THX certification and was awarded no fewer than five reader’s choice awards along with many commendations from technical journals.
Putting the sound in soundbar
To achieve THX certification, the Cinebar 52 THX needed to pass THX’s demanding tests to ensure that the device is truly capable of cinema sound with a sound pressure level over 100 dB. A total of six high-end drivers in an authentic 2-way construction along with a precise 250 watt subwoofer for deep bass all the way down to 35 hertz tuned by Europe’s most experienced THX developer, Christoph Winklmeier, helped the Cinebar 52 pass these tests with flying colors.
Fully loaded feature set
The Cinebar 52 THX offers the following connections: 4 HDMI inputs and one output in the current 1.4b standard. Six additional digital and analogue audio inputs allow the device to accept signals from CD players, iPods, and game consoles.
Thanks to CEC and ARC functionality, compatible televisions and Blu-ray players can automatically control the soundbar as well. This is almost a shame considering that the soundbar comes with its own high-end remote made from attractive aluminum. The Cinebar 52 THX’s enclosure is likewise made from this vibration-resistant metal. A contemporary high-end design featuring brushed aluminum underscores the device’s high performance level and allows the Cinebar 52 to be easily integrated into any type of interior.
