Orbitsound M12 Wireless Wooden Cabinet Soundbar : Good quality sound, good price.

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.

“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.

    We have a ‘snug’ lounge but the sound is perfect, not too overpowering. We have a ‘snug’ lounge but the sound is perfect, not too overpowering, however, the settings are very manageable enabling you to get the sound balanced perfectly for your room size.
    • Although the sound quality of this is very, very good and the wireless sub woofer is a nice touch and the bluetooth works well, i wouldn’t describe it as ‘room filling’. Ok i have a large room but at max volume, i still feel as if i am missing a true cinema experience. The spatial aspect also doesn’t really give much. My real gripe was that after hardly any use, i had to pay £20 for a new remote as the small shiny one supplied had packed up and it was out of guarantee. It was pretty useless anyway as other reviewers have pointed out. Make sure you get the slightly curved, matt black remote when you buy one. It did however save me a lot of grief from my wife about the 6 speakers and massive amplifier i had on the original sound system.

    Not impressed – read before you buy – you need to listen to the quality before purchase. I had to leave a review because i am puzzled how i cannot agree with all of the excellent reviews on this site regarding the orbitsound m12 soundbar. I am slightly disappointed in the product and so want to make people intending to purchase this unit consider their purchase a bit more carefully. I got the orbitsound m12 soundbar to improve the audio output on a television purchased for around £399. The quality of sound coming from the television is better than the sound from the orbitsound m12 soundbar by a noticable degree. The television, whilst flatter, is also clearer. The sound from the orbitsound m12 soundbar is richer but less clear with a slight bit of distortion. Also the subwoofer has a hum coming from it that makes it a little bit irritating. I’ll fit a ferrite and see if the hum dissipates. I will probably remove the orbitsound m12 soundbar and continue to use the television.
    • Redecorated our lounge & didn’t want the all round system we had with all the wires. Decided on the wireless orb soundbar. It gives out a great sound from the television & also music from my phone. The sound from the soundbar more than compensates for the surround system we had. Excellent bit of kit & reasonably priced, which is a bonus.
