Orbitsound SB60 Airsound Base review

 

Modern day televisions are getting thinner and thinner. And so, therefore, is their inherent sound quality. That's an issue that the Orbitsound SB60 Airsound Base looks to rectify.

Unobtrusive design underneath TV, takes plenty of weight on top, considerably boosts typically thin TV sound, enough bass, doesn't disrupt image, easy setup

No on-screen menus to simplify source and EQ controls, not on par with a surround system and separate sub, no Bluetooth, stereo only, "crunchy" top-end

Get used to the Orbitsound SB60 Airsound Base and you’ll quickly forget just how bad standard TV audio so often is. For the price the SB60 delivers plenty of audio thump and the adjustable EQ and built-in down-firing sub see that quality remains high.

The Orbitsound SB60 stands out from the crowd somewhat as a soundbase speaker with a glossy finish. This runs the risk of incurring scuff marks or scratches and adds to the cost. Handled with care though, it does look the part. For added interior...

An ideal speaker for anyone lacking the space for a sound bar, but it's not perfect

Expert review by:

Orbitsound SB60 airSOUND Base

 

Not a soundbar fan? Here's a neat and tidy speaker to buy instead.

Elegant, space-saving design ; Dynamic sound with wide sweet spot ; Simple to set up

Slightly brash sound ; Bluetooth not built-in ; Plasticky remote

Unusually, there are no EQ sound modes or virtual surround processing, such is Orbitsound’s confidence in the quality of airSOUND stereo. However, you can adjust the bass and treble levels to taste.

Orbitsound SB60 airSound Base review

 

Orbitsound's latest soundbar is the SB60 airSound Base.

The SB60 airSound Base goes a long way to achieving its goal. It's an affordable and simple way of improving the sound you get from your TV but will more beneficial for those watching films rather than regular TV shows.

Orbitsound SB60 AirSound

 

A powerful, punchy and detailed sound is let down by a lack of subtlety and frustrating operation

Big, loud, spacious sound ; Strong, clear sound with good weight and energy ; Deep, rich bass ; Better than TV sound

Could be more subtle and articulate ; Build quality could be better ; Remote is frustrating to use ; No display ; No Bluetooth

So where does that leave the Orbitsound SB60 soundbase? If we were judging it on sound quality alone, this would be a strong four-star performance.
