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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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
