Orbitsound SB60

 

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...

Orbitsound SB60 Airsound Base review - Pocket-lint

 

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.

Orbitsound SB60 AirSound review

 

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

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

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

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 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

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.

REVIEW: Orbitsound airSOUND Base

 

Orbitsound's march into your living room continues with the SB60 airSOUND Base system, a speaker box designed to accompany your flat screen TV. Neither surround sound system nor sound bar, can this intriguing speaker find its niche among home cinema...

An unusual sound system then, the Orbitsound SB60 airSOUND Base is a viable alternative to a standard soundbar unit, offering neither dramatically better nor worse sound than rival accomplished home cinema speaker systems offer. It really then comes...

Orbitsound SB60 airSOUND Base Review

 

It's certainly a more powerful performer than one might expect and the one-box solution is bound to find favour with the aesthetes out there.

An extremely tidy solution ; Clean and dynamic audio ; Tight and agile bass ; Very easy to set up and use ; A reasonable sense of surround

Lightweight sub ; Lacks connections ; No Bluetooth as standard
