Orb Audio speakers come in all size packages and we all know size is important because this gives the consumer a lot more options. People are in need of options for better audio on their laptop, TV, game console or home computer. These Orb speakers have great sound and are convenient and decorative too. What more can you ask for?
Orb Audio Speakers Come in all Size Packages
Orb Audio built its reputation on a formula that says great sound can come in small packages. The company’s home theater system matches a subwoofer with an array of small spherical speakers that are done up in stylish finishes, like black gloss or antiqued copper, so they look and fit nicely on a shelf or mounted on a wall.
Orb’s ideal setup for a home theater uses a mix of speakers for front, rear and center channels, matched with a separate subwoofer, in a collection that starts at about $800.
Now Orb has expanded its product line to include lower-priced packages designed for a wider range of situations. The targets include computers, gaming consoles, digital audio players and secondary TVs, like the one you might have in a game room or bedroom.
The Orb Booster package starts with a mini amplifier and a pair of Mod 1 speakers for about $400. Upgrade options include Mod2 speakers (double Orbs), a subwoofer (Orb offers four models starting at $138) and a variety of speaker finishes, including one called Hammered Earth.
The booster amp is a no-frills black box that’s slightly larger than a paperback book. There’s an on-off switch, volume buttons and a small remote, but not much else, like tone or balance controls.
The amp’s best feature is its ability to handle multiple audio sources. The backside has four input jacks, two for standard red-and-white audio cables and two for stereo pin plugs. If you want to connect a TV, a computer, an Xbox and an iPod, the Orb’s got you covered.
And the sound? The little globes do their usual job of delivering higher frequencies with clarity and precision. That’s welcome help for compressed MP3 music files and the dialogue on movie soundtracks. The subwoofer will go to work in the basement on movies and games that have rich bass lines.
I tried the booster with a variety of inputs, including a tablet computer, iPod and a mobile phone and heard significantly better sound than what I get from a sound dock or amplified computer speakers.
The Orbs aren’t sold in stores, so the company lets you try them at home for 30 days if you pay the shipping cost. Details are on the Orb website (www.orbaudio.com).
Versatility is a big factor for these small speakers with the big sound. Because the Orb Audio speakers come in all size packages, they don’t crowd your stuff and they look good almost anywhere. Affordable, good looking with great sound. The Orb definitely has got you covered.
