Frequently Asked Questions

General

Q: What does Orbitsound offer that other stereo speaker systems don’t?
A: Orbitsound combines innovative high quality audio products with its revolutionary spatial stereo technology, to deliver something other conventional speaker systems can’t – true stereo sound with depth and clarity from a single speaker, regardless of the position of the listener.

Q: What’s the current product line up?
A: We have an array of fantastic products now available. The T9 is the smaller sibling of our critically acclaimed T12v3 flagship model but will still pack a punch when it comes to sound quality. The neat T9 unit is made up of the unit itself, and a small subwoofer. Orbitsound has redesigned the subwoofer for the T9, to compliment the tonal character and smaller dimensions of the soundbar. The most recent additions to the Orbitsound family, are the M9 and M12 soundbar. The M9 is a soundbar and subwoofer that delivers the biggest sound from the smallest package of any system available today. It comes with a high power, low profile, high speed wireless digital subwoofer and with high quality Bluetooth streaming to the soundbar from any compatible Bluetooth device, means simple wireless enjoyment of streamed or stored media. The M12 is a larger version of the M9 and has a 300W output, larger than any of our other products. Both M products feature a new generation of digital amplifier, programmed to optimise the output from the system in all areas. The result is a louder, clearer and wider sound that is more engaging for the listener. Please visit our Product pages for more information.

Q: Why should people buy these products?
A: What we’re offering is a completely new way of listening to top quality stereo audio that’s great value and looks good too. Orbitsound’s spatial stereo technology has been critically acclaimed amongst the media and wider industry since it was first unveiled at CES 2008 in Las Vegas, and we believe this will only spark consumer appetite for our products.

Technology

Q: What’s different about the technology in Orbitsound?
A: Orbitsound’s pioneering technology makes our products unlike any other on the market and marks a huge leap forward in conventional sound reproduction. It lets people experience real stereo sound, without the clutter of multiple speakers, wires and complex configurations and with no compromise on sound quality.  Additionally, multi speaker systems suffer from the ‘sweet spot’ effect where a good balanced sound is heard in a limited space.  Our system generates an infinite sweet spot that means you hear brilliant stereo, everywhere via a single speaker unit and subwoofer which can be placed anywhere in the room. The T12 showcases a revolution in sound reproduction technology.

Q: How does Orbitsound compare to other conventional stereo systems?
A: With our technology you hear true stereo throughout the room, everywhere is the sweet spot. This is not the case with traditional two speaker stereo systems.  Even when these are set up correctly with the left and right speakers at the right distance apart, to create a single limited sweet spot, there is still subtle interaction between the speakers that compromises the stereo image. Move away from the spot, and the stereo image quickly fades, and the listener hears little more than mono.  Our spatial stereo technology eliminates this problem.  The positioning of the speaker is unimportant and the listener hears the same high quality stereo sound wherever they are in the room.

Q. Although the sound from DVDs and television is consistently stunning, from time to time some of my MP3 songs or downloaded music sound a bit strange played using Orbitsound products, why is that?
A: Some MP3 tracks are recorded at low bandwidth giving slightly lower quality and some MP3 methods do not record stereo information accurately, relying on normal stereo systems’ lack of ability to reproduce proper stereo. Orbitsound products offer unusually accurate high quality reproduction of what has been recorded, but on occasion you may hear imperfections due to poorly recorded tracks or low bandwith MP3 files. The answer to this problem is to always listen to 192Kb/s+ which is ‘the norm’ these days.
