A recent very noisy event at an iconic London institution had me see a range of audio items one such was this soundbar from Orbitsound and if you delve through the Gadgetspeak archives you will find other such reviews from them.

This recent offering has Airsound and Airamp technology. Airsound means wherever you place the unit in the room you get surround sound. Airamp is an active amplifier which increases clarity and reduces distortion.

You can connect to it by Wi-Fi or Bluetooth the setup for these is via an iOS or Android App. The third choice is via optical and the required lead is supplied in the box. There is also an option to listen via Aux input.

Listen to something on your TV and then connect the Orbitsound One, you can even reduce the TV sound to zero and use the supplied Orbitsound remote to get first the volume level you require and then set both the base and treble level to suit. No more guessing at what these modern program actors are saying or even worse films of the last twenty or so years, clear sound plenty of bass and even help in the upper register so you can now hear the output without having to rush to the remote to turn it down when the adverts come on at full volume.

The unit can be used either on its back or flipped through 90 degrees, it can also be wall mounted. It is 70cm long, 8cm across and 17cm deep, the last figures can be transposed according to orientation. The weight is a tad over 5kilos.

Next I tried Bluetooth and this gave tunes on my phone new life and even better than the output from good quality headphones.

Wi-Fi will give you output from sources further away with the same sound quality.

This unit is also supported by Spotify and even Tune In Radio found on most recent phones so clear sharp sound whatever the source.

I use a range of tracks from all Genres of music and speech, these are stored on an old MP3 player so out with it and connect via the supplied Aux lead, while my own personal choice is some classical music mainly solo piano but my main musical choice is jazz predominately small groups but some big bands. However while I dislike opera I know others do so some samples make it onto my MP3 as well as popular music including other things like country and more. For me with my normal age related loss of hearing the upper register from a range of female voice is often hard to clarify. All Genres of music and voice passed with clarity.

A few soundbars are sub £100, most decent offerings are high hundreds and into four figures, this offering from Orbitsound bridges the two groups at £399.

A nice well built British designed unit that good a good sound over the whole range it switches seamlessly from optical, through Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to Aux input using the supplied remote. At 5 kilos it is easy to move around and all you need is an electricity connection.

At the time of publication the Orbitsound One P70W v2 is is available from Amazon for £329, including delivery
