Digital Home Thoughts has reviewed some speakers I had never heard of before: the Orb audio Home Theater Speaker System that retails for $549 and up.
Here’s what they thought:
“When it’s all said and done, the bottom line is that the Orb Audio speakers impressed me so much that I’m going to purchase my own set of these speakers. There’s no higher recommendation I can give than to say that this is the product I personally want to use. The Orb Audio speakers are not only smaller than the Harman Kardon speakers I had before, they sound better, look better, and made me never want to set up the old system again. While the overall package can get a bit pricey if you need two pairs of their HOSS stands, if you’re looking for a quality system – or an upgrade from that horrendously bad Home Theatre In-A-Box system you might have – Orb Audio has a range of solutions at every price point that will allow you to enjoy movies, music, games in ways you never have before. And because their system is so modular, you can start with a minimal Mod1 system and as long as you get the right kind of stands or mounts, you can add more speakers to your system over time. That’s a powerful advantage that I haven’t seen in any retail speaker solution, and is the cherry on top of what is already a luscious mix of tasty audio.”
