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 T12v3 review


Not to be confused with the upcoming T14 soundbar with separate iPod dock and wireless subwoofer, which Orbitsound debuted at CES in January 2010, the Orbitsound T12v3 is the third version of the maker's T12 model. Boasting the same spatial sound...

Easy to use, excellent audio, good iPod usability, compact

No wireless connectivity on subwoofer, slightly plasticky finish on soundbar, no HDMI support, no on-screen prompts

A great product that's easy to use and offers excellent audio, which outweighs niggles such as the lack of HDMI support

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 T12 soundbar speakers review


If you don't like speakers cluttering up your room then a new UK company thinks it has the answer as it battles against Denon, Yamaha and others in the new soundbar category. So is it music to the ears? We get listening to find out. According to the...

Small, simple

Basic, no HDMI support, no visual feedback

If you are looking for a compact speaker system because you don't want to fill your living room with boxes this is certainly worth checking out

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

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...
