Excellent product if you can get money off @ ideal home show. Bought this at the ideal home show 2014 where they were giving £50 off the £399. Having had a demo at the previous years show i couldn’t resist purchasing it esp as i had moved into a new place with a bigger living room. Overall i’d say the sound is extremely good with deep, room filling bass and clear high end. Cannot complain about the sound when connected via bluetooth to any device (use it quite a bit with my smartphone streaming music). And when connected to the tv the sound is also very good. However, my only comment is when i’m watching films. Yes the sound is a lot richer and broader with the bass but the sound levels can sometimes be a bit off with the bass being too loud and vocals not being totally clear. I don’t think this is the fault if the sound bar but might be an idea to put the sound source from the tv through an equaliser.
Good quality sound, good price. . I looked at a number of soundbars to improve the quality of sound i get from my tv. Previously i used my hifi to get good sound from blu-ray / dvd but couldn’t use it for tv sound. The orbitsound m12 is amazing value for the quality of sound available. Its simplicity itself to set up – just use the supplied optical link and everything works fine. I had a small problem in that my tv only has two hdmi connections and i was using them for apple tv and freesat which left no connection for my blu-ray player other than component video. This meant that the optical lead couldn’t supply sound from the blu-ray to the m12. It was easily solved by connecting a good quality l/r audio cable from the blu-ray to l/r audio input on the m12. I actually think the sound quality is improved by using this method of connection and i’d recommend doing this for a blu-ray or dvd connection instead of the optical link even if you have enough hdmi connections. It also gives good quality stereo sound listening to cd on the blu-ray.
A great british product at a great price. . This is the best soundbar i have listened to and as far as setup was concerned it was easy to carry out and worked first time. It is also easy to bluetooth connect to phone and computer.

Comments from buyers
“Good quality sound, good price., Sound Investment, Not impressed – read before you buy – you need to listen to the quality before purchase, Excellent product if you can get money off @ Ideal Home Show, A GREAT BRITISH PRODUCT AT A GREAT PRICE., We have a ‘snug’ lounge but the sound is perfect, not too overpowering”
Excellent sound quality from compact understated equipment. Setup was a ‘piece-of-cake’. This equipment has transformed my television viewing and, strangely, i have reduced the overall volume as the speech is so much clearer than from the tv speakers.
After trolling e-bay and currys for a soundbar that would fit under my tv but not dominate i chose the m12, its great full cimema sound tested it with an enigma cd lovely then harry potter fantastic. I ordered it on wednesday it arrived friday (standard post) thanks to the support team @ orbit for their promt responce to my query. Easy to set up just plug in connect up and away you go. A great product very impressed worth every penny.
After alot of research we went with this sound bar as can have multiple bluetooth users and sounds loverly.
