Here's our 18th giveaway, and one of our grand prize giveaways, courtesy of the generous people at Orb Audio
: one MOD1 PLUS Speaker System
, valued at $999 USD, will be given away. Right now I'm testing a slightly bigger system of theirs (same speakers, just a few more of them), the Mod2
, and words fail me: these speakers sound so incredibly good
. Punchy, bright, powerful - just superb. The sub-woofer is tight and shockingly powerful for an 8" sub - hell, for any sub. I've been watching too many movies and enjoying the sound instead of writing my review! Here's a bit about the configuration that they're giving away to one lucky winner:"The Best $999 Orb Audio Speaker System. The MOD1 PLUS speaker system is our solution for our customers on a tight $1,000 budget. It includes a 5.1 Mod1 system with Mod2 center channel upgrade, our BOSS Mod2 horizontal center speaker stand, 100 feet of speaker wire and a 12 foot subwoofer cable. It has great sound, an upgraded look and all the little things that you forget like speaker wire and a subwoofer cable. You can also choose to configure it as 3 Mod2 speakers if you do not plan on having rear speakers or if you already have them. There are no tricks here...while other systems are $999 BEFORE you add wire, cables and stands, this system is $999 INCLUDING all of that. If you don't need the add-ons, we suggest that you consider our People's Choice Home Theater Speaker System, which upgrades your front left and right speakers to Mod2 for about the same price. If you'd like the add-ons AND the upgraded front speakers (in a medium or large room or if you prefer louder output) that option is available as well. Either way, the MOD1 PLUS system is completely customizable to include 5, 6 or 7 speakers and you may also add any additional audio and video cables you might require for other components, to ensure you don't have to do any last minute shopping when your system arrives."Here's how to enter:
just post a message as a reply telling me about your home theatre setup - whether that's a 14" TV and no surround speakers, or a 72" plasma with an in-wall speaker system. Tell me how the Orb Audio speakers would improve your movie watching enjoyment. There's one post per person allowed, and one winners will be randomly chosen. The contest will stay open for entries until April 7th, 2008. Because of the physical size and weight of this prize, only people in the USA and Canada may enter this contest.
Special thanks to Orb Audio for their donation of this kick-ass speaker system!
