Our take on the TEAC LS-H265

by Kristen Schaub

Why choose bookshelf speakers?

Bookshelf speakers may be small in size, but they can deliver surprisingly big sound. Some ultra-compact models even fit on a desktop. Most are right at home in tight spaces like shelves, so they're usually good choices for your home theater's rear channels. For the best performance, try placing bookshelf speakers on solid speaker stands to help the sound really "open up." If you want full bass impact, add a powered subwoofer and enjoy punchy sound that's as deeply satisfying as that of floor-standing speakers.

TEAC's compact LS-H265 bookshelf speakers make a great addition to any hi-fi TEAC home audio receiver. Each speaker features a 3/4" dome tweeter and a 5-1/4" woofer that combine to reproduce a wide frequency range. You'll here sparkling highs and clear, defined mids that help bring your favorite tunes to life — from Radiohead to Rachmaninoff.

A rear-firing port also helps these speakers reach deeper into the bass frequencies. Top it all off with the solid, acoustically inert cabinets finished in a stylish high gloss black, and you've got a stunning hi-fi system that'll rock your socks off.

Driver Technology

2-Way Speaker System: The TEAC LS-H265 bookshelf loudspeakers features a two-way design that employs a single 5.25" mid-woofer paired with a single 0.75" dome tweeter. The result is an extremely accurate sound with excellent imaging characteristics.

5.25" Woofer: Each LS-H265 bookshelf speaker employs a 5.25" paper cone woofer with rubber surround for accurate, detailed midbass.

0.75" Tweeter: Each TEAC LS-H265 bookshelf loudspeaker is equipped with a 0.75" dome tweeter for crisp, clear highs.

Waveguide: The TEAC LS-H265's tweeters utilize an acoustical waveguide to deliver more even high frequency response, no matter what part of the room you're in.

Enclosure Design

Bass Reflex Cabinet: The TEAC LS-H265 bookshelf loudspeakers employ a bass reflex cabinet with a rear-firing port for greater efficiency and bigger bass response.

High Gloss Finish: The TEAC LS-H265 features a high-gloss black lacquer finish.

Detachable Grille: The TEAC bookshelf loudspeakers come with detachable black cloth grilles.


Binding Posts: The binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 12-gauge), pin connectors, spade connectors, and banana plugs (single only).

Note: The binding posts are spaced to far apart to accommodate dual banana plugs.

Color-Coded: The speaker's binding posts are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

Speaker Wire: Two 6.5' lengths of 20-gauge speaker are supplied.

Mounting Options

Rubber Feet: Each bookshelf loudspeaker features four integrated self-adhesive rubber feet to safely and securely place the speakers on floor-stands or other AV furniture.

Wall Mounting: The optional PinPoint heavy duty side-grip wall-mounting bracket (121AM40B, sold separately) can be used to wall mount the speakers.

Note: The speakers do not include any type of wall-mount bracket or keyhole slots.

TEAC speakers

Written By Jerry, Anchorage, alaska on Friday, January 24, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The TEAC speakers which I purchased are a wonderful compliment to the receiver (also TEAC) that I received for a gift. The range and brilliance is amazing!! Just what I wanted for my price range. Also I wish to comment on the free shipping. Living in Alaska we see often "free shipping" on websites, upon reading the fine print or speaking to customer service I find that this does not apply to Alaska. One can imagine the expense of shipping "up there". Crutchfield is true to their word! Free means just that. Thank you very much! I have purchased several items from you and have always had exceptional quality and service.

TEAC LSH-265 Speakers

Written By Ted C, Marlton NJ on Saturday, March 03, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
A great sounding speaker that requires little space but delivers big sound. I was surprised by the fullness of the sound from these compact speakers. They really deliver. To make a good thing even better, the piano clack finish adds real class to the room they occupy. Great job TEAC!
Great sound
