Overall, the Teufel System 5 THX home cinema system is a pretty good performer.
I liked its performance with movies, and this is where the system really comes into its own. A detailed sound, excellent surround sound placement and room-shaking bass are what you can expect from a 5.1 system which really works 'as-one' to produce an exciting sound for movies.
It will easily handle all the low-rumblings of your favourite action-packed blockbuster, plus has enough detail to do justice to a more subtle soundtrack with atmospheric soundscapes or acoustic-based music.
If music performance is an important consideration for you, then you may need to consider what other options you have at this price point. That's not to say the System 5 can't handle music relatively well - but if you are an audiophile then you may need something with a little more smoothness and refinement. It depends on the type of music you play and your listening habits really.
The good news for those interested in this Teufel system (or any Teufel system for that matter) is that you don't have to take my word for it.
As a retailer that operates direct from the factory, Teufel offer an impressive 8 week risk-free home trial. You can order the speaker system from their website and once you have it delivered to your home, you can trial the system for 8 weeks. If you decide against keeping the speakers, you can return the system and you will receive a refund of the amount you paid, minus the shipping cost to send it back.
It's a tempting offer, as there is no substitute for hearing a speaker system in the exact room that you will be using. Your room acoustics can make a big difference to the sound of an audio setup - and at least you will know before you buy the thing!
Not only that, but Teufel offer a whopping 12-year guarantee on the housing, chassis and diplexers of the loudspeaker boxes - and a 2 year warranty on the electronic equipment, components and parts.
If, like me, you've never heard any Teufel speakers before, then they are a manufacturer that are worth considering if you are looking for the best speaker system for your home.
