Teufel’s Cinebar 52 THX – A soundbar with certified home cinema-grade sound


thx soundbar
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.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
