The Concept E 400 Digital is nothing less than the mightiest multimedia complete set we know of: and that with all the typical benefits of the „All in One“ package. Everything’s there, everything fits: speakers, amplifier, controller, decoder, cables…because everything comes together at Teufel.

Fit for everything
This set gives you a fantastic sound from many different sources. Whether Playstation, Xbox, Wii, TV, Computer, MP3 player, DJ Mixer, CD Player, DVD player, Satellite receiver, it doesn’t matter – you can connect to all of it. And it’ll all sound good…

External connector for all devices
The Decoderstation 5 with its four digital inputs, three stereo analogue inputs plus a 5.1 input for the soundcard works as a central connector of the set. Use it directly on the device (there’s a 32 character display!) or via the remote control.

Dolby Digital/dts-technology
The integrated decoder allows an original 5.1 playback and values thanks to the Dolby Prologic stereo signals. You’ll enjoy an amazing surround sound that the five satellites and subwoofer ensure is a harmonious whole.

Exceptional sound
The five compact satellites and imposing subwoofer in the Concept E 400 are singularly responsible for the fantastic sound of this set. The satellites are delivered with table feet, so you’re able to stand them alone in the room or place them on the walls as you wish.

500 Watt maximal performance
The subwoofer-integrated 5.1 amplifier distributes this gigantic performance over two different fields at the same time. The first field is that 300 mm woofer in the slim bass reflex housing which delivers a full bodied, hefty bass up to 32 Hz. The second field are the fantastic five two-way satellites that, from only a 9 x 12,5 cm large housing with 80 mm midrange drivers and a 19 mm tweeter, produce extremely accurate, multifaceted and dynamic sound. For rooms of up to 30 m² the satellites and woofer handle the room admirably…with the addition of the included cable set AC 3015 WS you’re guaranteed powerful and strong performance through the room.

Crowning Glory
The Concept E 400 Digital takes the top position for the Teufel multimedia complete solution for all walks of life. For the home cinema, overkill at the office or as a universal multimedia station – you’ll have the set to impress both yourself and others with – the one that’ll give you real fun to play.

When we set out to build the Concept E 400, we set ourselves an ambitious goal. We decided to create the world's most impressive loudspeaker set for high-performance PC multimedia sound. The resulting system fulfills its promise and rounds out the upper-end of Teufel Concept E portfolio.

A 500 watt subwoofer
There's no way to look past the imposing CE 400 SW situated right at the center of this sound system. Its 500 watt amplifier supplies more than enough power to fill spaces up to 30 sqm with loud, clear sound.

300 mm bass driver
It's surprising, but the compact Concept E 400 puts a 300 mm bass driver at your disposal. Generally speaking, bass drivers of this size are reserved for home cinema systems costing 1,000 euros or more. Only Teufel delivers this level of material quality... for a third of the usual price!

The bass
From film effects, to gaming surprises and musical impulses... expect a level of bass capable of covering the entire spectrum. It drops below 32 Hz to ensure that you won't just hear the base, but that you'll also feel it!

The satellites
Five high-performance satellites constructed using two-way technology deliver a highly nuanced performance. An arched front piece ensures optimal directional characteristics, while a removable "floating" grille minimises corner reflections.

Consistently good
All five Concept E 400 satellite speakers are shielded and identically configured to ensure there are no distortions amongst channels. They are perfectly suited for placement on tables or shelves, wall-mounting or placement on speaker stands.

PC sound and beyond
Teufel's Concept E 400 is specifically designed to be connected with a PC. But it also delivers quality sound from other devices including DVD players, MP3 players, iPod docks, Sat receivers, gaming consoles and additional sources. Stereo sources sound great distributed over this 5.1 system thanks to built-in upmix technology!

Simply better
Concept E 400 guarantees peak-quality multimedia sound right at your PC.

Decoderstation 5

This clever high-tech tool transforms an active 5.1 speaker ensemble into a complete multimedia centre. Thanks to the Decoderstation 5, a purely PC-based set is converted to a universal system to use anywhere.

Connect 8 devices
Up to eight external devices can be used with the Decoderstation 5 via a Teufel multichannel speaker set – without shifting the plugs around – simply by pressing a button on the decoder itself or using the infrared remote control.

Full surround quality

The integrated Dolby/dts decoders of the Decoderstation 5 enable an original 5.1 playback in full surround quality. A 32-character display keeps you informed about current function status; the supplied remote control permits you to conveniently control all functions from your listening location.

A Teufel cable with a 1.0 mm² cross sectional area is recommend for multimedia systems and less expensive home cinema systems where only short distances need to be covered.

CCA Wires

The wires within this cable are made from copper-clad aluminium. CCA cables have the same electric conductivity as full copper wires but weigh less, making them easier to work with.

More wire strands per cable

The loudspeaker cable contains an especially high number of strands for extra flexibility and conductivity.

Robust jacket

The extremely robust yet flexible outer jacket protects the high-quality cable inside. The positive pole is indicated.


The loudspeaker cables can be connected directly to the amplifier/loudspeaker or by means of a banana plug.


One loudspeaker cable plus cable ties with Velcro is delivered in separate packaging.

Stereo cinch cable for connecting devices such as amplifier/AV receivers to a CD or record player etc.

    Concept E 400 - CE 400 SW vorne

    5.1 Subwoofer CE 400 SW

    The high performance of the Concept E 400 SW may redefine the field of multimedia subwoofers. Because there's no more to more.

    The 5.1 amplifier distributes the 500 watts maximum performance to six channels. And 225 watts of those are allocated just for the bass in the 63 litre reflex casing. This makes sense, because an imposing 300 mm chassis lays waiting for an ample power supply to allow it to mercilessly play out its advantages: 32 Hz lower limit frequency, 500 watts maximum level – while remaining clean, precise and free from noise.

    Three illuminated regulators on the front enable direct control of the total volume, bass proportion and the On/Standby operating mode. The power consumption in the standby mode here remains less than 1 watts.

    The Concept E 400 SW is only available as part of a Concept E 400 set.

    Lautsprecherkabel AC 1030 CS

    30 m Speaker Cable AC 1030 CS

    Two-wire standard loudspeaker cable with a larger diameter of 1.5 qmm. This cable is better used than the 0.75 qmm when there are increased demands on playback quality or a bridged length of over 5 meters long. The plus pole is marked.

    These are particularly useful for multimedia systems and price-conscious home cinema sets. Available in two lengths.

    Stereo-Cinchkabel AC 7015 CA

    1,5 m Stereo RCA Cable AC 7015 CA

    Good value stereo RCA cable for analogue connection of Teufel multimedia sets to signal sources or control units, e.g. DVD players, games consoles, TV sets, DVB-T boxes, video recorders or decoder stations.
    For a 2.1 speaker set you will need one of these cables; for a 5.1 speaker set you will usually need three of these cables.

    CE 20 FCR vorne mit Abdeckung

    Satellite Speaker CE 20 FCR

    The compact CE 20 FCR satellite represents the current highpoint in the development of powerful multimedia speakers at Teufel.

    Despite being small in size, the micro speaker plays back all medium and high frequencies comprehensively, clearly and powerfully. The 9 x 12.5 cm casing behind a removable, floating mounted grid has a full-grown two-way system with 80 mm mid-tone speaker and 19 mm tweeter; an extremely finely tuned frequency switch ensures the harmonic interplay of these components. The curved front provides better sound radiation than conventional constructions.

    An exceptionally linear frequency response is achieved in conjunction with the active filtering of the subwoofer’s multi-channel amplifier, marking new standards in the field of multimedia speakers.

    The CE 20 FCR includes a matching table stand, but it can also be attached to the wall and swivelled horizontally/vertically using the optional Shortlock wall bracket. Attaching the speaker to the separately available M 50 P stand allows it to be placed freely in the room.

The Teufel stays!
Since I've heard the Teufel system at my buddy's I was clear what I need for so little money to get so much sound experience. When I saw the offer of the Teufel plant Concept E 400 Digital 5.1 I had to simply grab it. Now to the essential comments true promising under the purchase so listen to yourself and make a picture of it! Now to my result Processing 1 Sound 1 Financial 1 Explanation to the structure and to the adjustment of the Sub was just as 1 worthy The package with the cables was perfectly sufficient for me. Now to the why I sounded super, financially super, processing easy to set only came to 4 and a half stars! Stupid is that the subwoofer can only be switched off by pressing a button on the sub and not like the decoder stadium5 with the remote control. Since the light disturbs who you want to crash. Another reason is that the decoder station5 unfortunately has no USB port which I personally think is a pity because you always have to turn on the TV. It'd be cool if you guys improved on that. Now to my conclusion conclusion we are all Christian in the house but we have now a Teufel in the house and he will not come away anymore he stays!!!! :) Just Mega the plant!!!!!!
Uhhhh yaaaaaaaaa!
Everything's great! Clear sound and deep basses! Exactly what I expect from the Teufel. Super cool.
(automatically translated *)
Hey. Hey. Hey, So far I can only run the set in 3.1 because my new 5.1 soundcard is still on the way, but I am completely satisfied so far, HAMMERSOUND The only thing that's a little annoying is that the 3 packages were delivered on 3 different days, but that's not a loss of quality. Many thanks to the Teufel now on the screen when it comes to sound
Just Geil
Just cool, more needs and you can not say to it!!! Is every Euro worth !!!
(automatically translated *)
Super plant
Great plant. Great sound. It took a while until I plugged everything in, but it was worth it. Would recommend this at any time.
(automatically translated *)
Genuine the Hammer
Really the hammer the thing!! Already when unpacking I had fun and then when switching on the Teufel went like Teufel simply ingenious the thing can only recommend to everyone !,, once Teufel always Teufel !,,,
Super Entertainer System
This system fully meets my expectations. The satellites are of high quality and sound excellent. They can be precisely aligned with the optional wall brackets. The active bass is so brutally strong that you have to lower it to get the best sound. Here it is recommended to order the level meter for an optimal tuning at the same time. Loudspeaker cable is included in sufficient length. Top Bundle
Very satisfied
Teufelo I am very satisfied with the product. The only criticism is that the Y-adapter cables could be included in the package (or other necessary cables for connecting) and you don't have to buy them separately. MfG
I'm thrilled.
Colleagues who had bought loudspeakers from Teufel raved to me about one. So I decided to create something new. All I can say is, I'm thrilled by the rich sound. I have now banished my 20-year-old loudspeakers to the basement.
Super ingenious
I have now for quite some time a Teufel ( Concept E 400 Digital 5.1 set ) and must say that it is simply brilliant my expectations are surpassed to the highest mas a clean sound on every level. I can only say that it was really worth every single cent I regret this decision not to have gotten me this sound system and can only recommend it to everyone.
