Orb Audio: Do These Small Speakers Measure Up?

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 07:00 AM


Product Category: Home Theatre Speaker System
Manufacturer: Orb Audio
Where to Buy: Orb Audio
Price: starts at $549 USD for two-channel system with sub-woofer (the Mod2 configuration reviewed here, without stands, is $1289 USD)
System Requirements: An amp to power the speakers, and hopefully a nice big TV to go with them.
Specifications: See the Orb Audio specifications page.

Pros:
  • The great-looking satellite speakers sound incredible, with crisp, punchy audio;
  • Both the 8" and 10" sub-woofers are extremely powerful, yet deliver smooth, distortion-free bass;
  • Reasonable price for the quality of the speakers when compared to retail prices;
  • Many options for custom order configuration and speaker finish.
Cons:
  • Mail-order means you probably can't hear them before you buy them;
  • If you need them for your setup, the beautiful hand-crafted HOSS speaker stands put a big bite into your budget at $299 per pair.

Summary:
You've probably never heard of Orb Audio before, or their speakers, but if you're looking for small, powerful home-theatre speakers that are surprisingly affordable for the quality you get, this is one company you should pay attention to. Read more...
