Teufel System 5.jpgTeufel home cinema systems offer a lot of bang for your buck, but usually the amount of buck you’d need to nab one can get pretty pricey. Looking to offer a more affordable set of gear, Teufel are launching the System 5 home cinema surround package, which they are dubbing “the perfect equilibrium between uncompromising sound quality, ergonomics and economics”.

Based on the previously available System 5 THX Select 2 system, the System 5 features a a single S 5000 SW subwoofer with 300mm neodymium woofer in a down firing configuration, two rear S 50D dipole speakers and three THX-certified front satellite speakers.

“Many of our customers want the THX Select 2 experience, but their homes or budget can’t support the extra space required for these systems,” explains Teufel’s Florian Szigat. “At Teufel we don’t like to limit the experience our customers can have – in offering the System 5, users can have close to the full THX Select 2 experience without the added cost or space considerations of a second subwoofer.”

The Teufel System 5 is available now in two different configurations. The standard set will set you back £899, while the “Concert 5.1” version will cost £999, featuring S 500 FCR speakers for users who are unable to wall-mount dipole speakers in their living rooms.

Still perhaps a bit steep for most wallets, if you’re interested, check them out here.
