Orb Audio People's Choice home theatre system

 

These spherical satellite speakers have startling sound quality

Excellent clarity, great quality mid-bass from subwoofer, super-modern looks

Only suitable for small and medium rooms, competent amplifier required, no banana plug connectors

If you're looking for a compact home theatre system that has great sound quality, Orb Audio's People's Choice home theatre system is one of the most competent we've heard. Available for a surprisingly reasonable price, the system is stylish and well...

Orb Audio Mod1

 

The Orb Audio Mod1 stereo speakers sound incredible when paired with the company's companion Super Eight subwoofer, but on their own, they're not quite full-range.

Attractive design. Transparent, neutral sound. Plenty of volume. Airy highs, even despite the lack of a dedicated tweeter.

Virtually no bass punch by themselves.

Performance and Conclusions I tested the Mod1 pair with the Orb Audio Booster , the company's diminutive, 20-watt-per-channel desktop amplifier, both with and without the Super Eight powered subwoofer attached. The Mod1 delivers stellar sound—just not...

Review: Orb Audio Home Theater System

 

Quick — what's the secret to building a versatile surround sound system? Finely calibrated speakers, receivers, and subwoofers? Wrong! The correct answer is balls. Specifically,...

Awesome clarity for both music and hi def movies. Easy to assemble. Surprisingly solid craftsmanship. Hardly any distortion at high volumes. Satisfyingly heavy and durable speaker stands. Metal rods on HOSS stands have been hollowed to hide speaker...

Not the broadest sound field we’ve encountered. Want ear-level speakers? Extra speaker stands are going to cost you at 9 a pair. Center channel speaker stand kept coming loose. Speaker wire can be tricky to secure due to enclosed clamps

Orb Audio Mod4 Speakers Review

 

Orb Audio has presented a refreshingly contemporary speaker system that somewhat miraculously couples big, expansive sound with a relatively small form factor. The system is almost infinitely expandable and, with the exception of a few ergonomic...

Attractive speakers ; Big sound ; Excellent tactile bass response

Sub aesthetically mismatched ; Confusing, complex mounting options ; Difficult assembly when using HOSS stands

Orb Audio Mod2 Speakers Review

 

Not all of us have the luxury or the ability to spend thousands of dollars on high priced, high performing, extremely accurate but outrageously ugly speaker systems. And those of us that have that

Excellent Sound Quality ; Super high WAF (small and cute) ; Better than expected low end range ; Very cool ; Modular

Distorts at higher volumes ; Unusual wire connection points (bare wire only) ; May not be suitable for larger rooms

Orb Audio People’s Choice Speaker System

 

Spherical loudspeakers are perhaps too easily dismissed: “Oh look, it's round. Cute gimmick. Next…” That box speakers are easy to build certainly doesn't guarantee sound quality. In fact, designers of quality speakers are constantly rebelling against...

With the People’s Choice package, Orb Audio stakes a claim to high-end performance in the sat/sub category. While it’s subject to the limits of compact sat/sub sets in general—mainly midbass integration—it also has tremendous appeal thanks to its high...

Orb Audio People’s Choice Speaker System

 

We last considered Orb Audio with a review of its Mod1 speaker system in 2005 that was briefly updated online three years later. Since then, the company's product line has expanded to include several surround systems based on varying combinations of...
