Orbitsound T12v3 Review

 

Home entertainment can be difficult: do you invite dozens of speakers into your living room in the quest for perfect sound, or opt for a one- or two-box setup and maybe sacrifice some quality for simplicity? UK firm Orbitsound claims to have the...

Outfitting your lounge or home entertainment room for audio always comes with compromises. 5.1 or 7.1 speaker systems invariably offer a more involving sound, though demand you live with multiple often expensive boxes and all the cabling required to...

Orbitsound T12v3 review

 

Orbitsound is a relatively new company with only one thing on its mind – making speakers. Its product range runs to soundbars and iPod speakers. And that's it. With that in mind, you'd expect its T12v3 soundbar and sub combo to be more than a match for...

Orbitsound’s unique ‘spatial sound technology’ proves to be more than just PR twaddle. The internal alignment of the eight drivers results in a widely dispersed stereo image, with much less of a ‘sweet spot’ than I expect from a ‘bar. This gives it a...

Those with Blu-ray players will rue the lack of an HDMI input – Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD soundtracks are therefore a no go. You’ll have to make do with the optical and coaxial digital audio connections, and analogue stereo jacks ; The subwoofer doesn’t...

Orbitsound T12v3 review

 

A speaker dock that promises 'spatial sound without the extra speakers'. Does it measure up?

User-friendly, easy to set up ; Good quality for the money

Spatial effect not great ; Better-sounding rivals exist

OrbitSound T12v3 review

 

In a world where there are wireless speakers, surround sound speakers, iPod dock speakers and even garden speakers the OrbitSound T12 plans to wipe the slate clean, giving you a premium all-rounder. Can it live up to such claims?

Spacial Stereo Technology ; Simple design and setup ; Price

Cheap remote ; Fingerprint happy coating ; Lack of iPad functionality

Orbitsound T12 review

 

This soundbar-cum-iPod dock offers an average performance

Boosts your TV's sound ; Convenient iPod dock ; Compact design

Boomy passive subwoofer ; No digital audio inputs ; Under-powered

Definitely one for the iPod fanboys out there, otherwise there's little to distinguish this soundbar from the competition

Orbitsound Soundbar T12v3 review

 

The Orbitsound T12v3 is soundbar speaker for flatscreen TVs, with a dock to play from iPods and iPhones too.

The Orbitsound Soundbar T12v3 is a versatile speaker system for playing sound from flat-panel televisions and iPods, possessing the kind of sound quality to get you nodding to the music. It’s not hi-fi as we know it, but it makes a great sound that...

Orbitsound T12v3

 

Improves TV sound, iPod/iPhone dock, sounds big and loud, loads of bass

Sub is a little rowdy still, could be more flexible with positioning and connections

Subtle it ain’t, but it solves two problems affordably and effectively

Orbitsound T12v3

 

Orbitsound sets a new standard with its ‘spatial stereo' soundbar

Excellent sound quality ; Dashing design and high-quality construction ; Easy to install and operate

Sub not wireless ; Bass a tad boomy at times ; No HDMI inputs

The Orbitsound T12v3 is a sonic revelation. Not only is its fundamental sound quality of the highest order, but the spatial stereo tech also works a treat, giving you immersive, engaging audio no matter where it's placed in the room.
