Teufel launches Columa range, THX Ultra 2 soon

Teufel has unveiled a host of new speakers and also confirmed that it is working on what it suggests are the smallest THX Ultra 2 speakers around.

The German direct sale company – who are pushing hard for a place in the UK market showed TechRadar their new Columa range; the £1,074 Columa 700 5.1 speaker package, the 700 R (£1,209) with an integrated amplifier and the high end Columa 900.

The Columa 900 'comprises…four column speakers with a depth of just 8.3cm and a D'Apollito array of tweeter and mid-range drivers which is also mirrored in the centre speaker, offering a homogeneous sound that can only be achieved through identical drivers.'

Soundbar and THX

Interestingly, Teufel also told Home Cinema Choice that it was working on both a soundbar and more THX certified products.

"The Cineba 50 soundbar is a two channel design, with a separate subwoofer featuring a 10in driver and integrated 150w amp, and Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 decoding," confirmed Teufel's Florian Szigat.

THX products – which are certified by George Lucas' sound company – have always sold well for Teufel, so it is no surprise that they are working on new speakers, but Teufel's Managing Engineer Christoph Winklmeier admitted that they are hoping for a landmark product.

"We think this will be the smallest Ultra 2 THX system," he told TechRadar. "Certainly the subwoofer will be the smallest but we haven't compared the other speakers yet."
