An integrated display shows everything about the soundbar state. Wall mounting is simple with recessed connectors, vibration damping rubber mounting pads and a mounting kit is included, along with optical and AUX cables. The high quality remote control allows full control of all the soundbar features. For even more convenient remote control of volume, the Orbitsound BAR A70 has the ability to learn your TV remote for easy volume adjustment.

Audio Technology

The Orbitsound BAR A70 features all new loudspeaker drivers, optimised to deliver an incredible audio experience. The front speaker array blends the latest digital amplification with an analogue audiophile-grade Hi-Fi crossover featuring precision components. This is coupled to two high performance 2" loudspeaker drivers and a high definition tweeter that together deliver fantastic detail and depth in sound. Connecting wirelessly is a custom designed subwoofer that delivers a smooth bass response down to a floor-quaking 45Hz. Side firing speakers and special signal processing add the airSOUND™ layer – allowing all listeners to experience width and spatial detail from everywhere in the room.

S3 Wireless Subwoofer

The wireless Orbitsound type 'S3' subwoofer is compact and slimline, allowing a number of convenient placement options. The wireless connection is extremely low latency for in-time sound, and the Mass loaded 6.25" loudspeaker provides powerfully smooth bass. Whilst the sub-bass is incredible for movies, games and TV, there are times when you will want to adjust the amount of bass being delivered. You can adjust the subwoofer level between -20dB and +10dB, making it perfect for everything from quiet night time TV viewing to the liveliest of parties. All of this can be adjusted from the remote control, and the current level is clearly displayed on the soundbar's display.

Display

The full feature display is clearly visible for all soundbar features. Invisible unless lit up, the display clearly shows you what input is being used, as well as a host of other useful information, including the subwoofer connection state, bass and treble levels, volume, remote learning process and the Bluetooth status.

Remote Control Learning

The included Orbitsound remote is stylish and easy to use, but for even more convenient control of volume, the Orbitsound BAR A70 has the ability to learn Vol+ and Vol- from your TV remote*. This means you can control the soundbar volume without putting down your normal remote.

Remote learning procedure:

  1. Press and hold [LRN] on the Orbitsound BAR A70 front panel for 3 seconds
  2. The Orbitsound BAR A70 will light up a green [LRN] light and request volume up
  3. Press volume up on your TV remote once
  4. The Orbitsound BAR A70 will request volume up again
  5. Repeat the steps 3 and 4, but with volume down
  6. All the lights will flash to show remote learning has worked.

Note, to prevent your TV remote adjusting the volume of your TV, we recommend disabling your TV speakers in the setup menus, so the Orbitsound BAR A70 becomes the only audio device affected by your TV remote.

* The volume learning feature is compatible with most IR remote controls, but not all. Please contact us to find out if your TV is compatible.

Android Magazine

The sound that the A70 produced was top quality, rich, clear, and with a thudding low bass.

BBC Music Magazine

Given the tight dimensions of the cabinet, the A70 delivers a considerable dynamic range, helped by the addition of a sonically weighty, yet small-sized wireless subwoofer.

Trusted Reviews

The A70 is more expensive than your average soundbar but justifies the price with an accomplished performance, elegant design and luxurious build quality. If you've got this sort of cash to splash on a soundbar then the A70 is a great choice.

Orbitsound has found its design swing with the A70 airSOUND Bar, producing not only an aesthetic ace but a top-sounding soundbar and subwoofer combination.

T3

The sound bar's 300W output provided some serious wallop, and managed to do so without any notable distortion, while Orbitsound's much talked- about airSOUND technology afforded a relatively immersive experience. I say relatively because it didn't quite match-up to a true 5.1 surround-sound set-up but was certainly better than other soundbars I've heard.

iCreate Magazine

It does a great job of filling a room with audio, giving the impression of full surround thanks to the side-firing speakers, while the subwoofer does a great job of making the floor beneath your feet feel like it is stress-testing against earthquake
