It plays almost everything, that’s how Lautsprecher Teufel GmbH advertises the new Teufel MUSICSTATION, which presents itself as a compact, elegant, but above all a powerful all-in-one system. Music from CD is just as possible here as radio and music streaming.
Especially when it comes to streaming and thus multiroom audio, it is easy to consume music wherever you want it in the house. The range of corresponding solutions on the market is versatile, so that the right product can be found for almost every task. In addition, there are Bluetooth speakers, also a huge market segment, which also offers the possibility to consume music anywhere in the house in the easiest way.
As there, the smartphone is first and foremost the source or at least the central control element. You can access not only your own content, but also dozens and dozens of online services and thus millions of music titles directly. One would think that all eventualities are covered…
But it is interesting to note that those solutions that are not limited to streaming alone are also highly sought after by consumers, solutions that offer even more possibilities, such as some classic radio or CD playback. The Berlin company Lautsprecher Teufel GmbH now wants to offer exactly such a solution in the form of the new Teufel MUSICSTATION.
The new Teufel MUSICSTATION plays terrestrially received radio via FM as well as DAB+, but can also play audio CDs and of course mobile devices such as smartphones can be integrated as a source via Bluetooth. In addition to this, streaming is possible, with access to services such as Spotify including Spotify Connect, Amazon Music as well as Internet Radio. Voice control via Amazon Alexa is supported for particularly intuitive operation.
So that the new Teufel MUSICSTATION can be placed anywhere in the house without any problems, the Berlin-based company promises an elegant all-rounder. The Teufel MUSICSTATION is intended to be distinguished by its slim design, with three installation variants available: angled or upright, for example on a table or sideboard, or directly with the adapter plate included in the scope of delivery and thus wall mounting. This is not only intended to provide flexibility in terms of set-up, but also to ensure the best possible sound at all times, as it allows you to ensure optimum radiation.
As already mentioned, the new Teufel MUSICSTATION can play CDs, not only audio CDs but also CD-ROMs with MP3 data, for example. Via USB, corresponding storage media can also be connected directly, which means that MP3s as well as AAC, WMA, WAV and FLAC files can be played. The radio offers both FM and DAB+, with the best possible reception guaranteed via an antenna connection. Analogue sources can be connected via an AUX input.
With Bluetooth you can rely on Bluetooth 5.0 and can use the codec AAC for Apple iOS, and the codec aptX for Google Android as an alternative to the lossy SBC.
The integration into the network is done via WLAN, so that one can directly access Spotify including Spotify Connect, Amazon Music and Internet Radio. The control is done via mobile devices, whereby the Teufel Remote App is available for Apple iOS as well as for Google Android. But of course all relevant parameters can also be set directly on the device, with a dimmable display showing all essential information. In addition, a matching infrared remote control is included in the scope of delivery. By the way, 30 memory locations per reception path allow direct access to favourite content.
A further form of convenient control is available with the integration of voice control. For example, the new Teufel MUSICSTATION is designated as Works with Alexa and integration in Google Home is also to be guaranteed.
In this case it goes without saying that the new Teufel MUSICSTATION can also be used as a radio alarm clock in the most modern form. Two alarm times and a sleep timer are available and in standby mode the display shows the time.
For rich sound, the Teufel MUSICSTATION is designed as a two-way bass reflex system. A total of six drivers are to be used here, which feature Teufel Dynamore Ultra technology. Specifically, these are two full-range drivers and two woofers, which are directed forward, plus two mid-range drivers, which radiate from the side and, in conjunction with the aforementioned Teufel Dynamore Ultra technology, are intended to provide a particularly wide stereo panorama. The drivers are driven by a Class D amplifier module with six channels, providing a total of 100 watts. The frequency response, which is reproduced with the Teufel MUSICSTATION, can be found in the data sheet at 56 Hz to 20 kHz.
Lautsprecher Teufel GmbH refers to this as a CD Internet radio of the HiFi class with extensive streaming functions and offers it optionally in white or black. It is available immediately from the Berlin company in their webshop, at a price of € 499.99.
