Teufel M520 F
Before buying new hi‐fi equipment one should take the time to think about tuning the existing one. If the station is still good, but the sound experience is not, a new stereo‐system should help. The Teufel M520 F stereo tower speakers conjure up the sound of any station to outstanding results. Each of the two tower speakers is set up with two bass/midrange drivers, a tweeter and a lateral bass driver. The dimensions of the single components are gigantic, while front stays surprisingly slim. The bass/midrange driver has a diameter of 160 millimetres and is made of carbon fibre. The tweeter has a 25 millimetres diameter and provides a neodymium‐magnet. The lateral bass driver has got a huge diameter of 300 millimetres. With this data in mind, one can imagine how big and heavy these tower speakers are. Each weighs around 35kg. It should be taken care of a proper stand in any case. Besides, one should evaluate the existing space and indoor arrangements when it comes to this bulky size.
In the end, the bulky size turns out to be a big advantage of the Teufel M 520 F when reproducing the sound. The volume and corresponding dimensions produce deep and strong basses. Teufel is acting very smart concerning the bass driver, since this one is just being fed as separate subwoofer and has got its own 190 Watt final. Therefore, an additional subwoofer is redundant. The activation works optional via sub‐out or via speaker connectors of a stereo amplifier. The latter gets constant relieve by the bass driver’s integrated final.
In order to adapt the Teufel M520 F ideally to the individual room, they provide a peak regulating switch. Herewith, a different emphasis of bass driver and midrange tweeter is possible. So besides the room adaptation, your own music taste can benefit from this feature. Up to 30 Hz and 105 db/Meter can be generated like this. Teufel mentions a maximum room size of 50 square meters. It should be enough for most living rooms.
The Teufel M 520 F are perfectly suited to act as home‐cinema, too. The sound range being so wide, speech can be reproduced naturally. Apart from that, the home‐cinema inherits two subwoofers. Teufel is known for offering the finest technology at a small price (in this case for only 899.00 £). There is nothing comparable in this price class on the market. All tests from specialised press confirm a high‐quality technology on a solid basis. The stereo‐sound is simply thrilling and makes one hungry for more.
