Orbitsound SB60LX 200W Soundbar – A good quality, solidly made unit without the frills of more expensive alternatives.

Not what it states on the tin. The actual product is wonderful, would of supplied it 5 stars but for the description of it, which states its bluetooth and its not.

It was a minimal larger than i was. It was a small greater than i was expecting but it feels like a high quality bit of package. It was quite effortless to established up, even with lack of a first rate consumer manual. The audio that it presents is amazing. However, when i noticed this on amazon advertised as a soundbar with bluetooth i imagined it was a excellent selection to acquire this single unit somewhat than a television audio system and a bluetooth speaker program for streaming music from my ipod. Following a few unsuccessful makes an attempt to join by way of bluetooth i resorted to the orbitsound web page only to discover that bluetooth is only supported by way of the aux input using a bluetooth receiver which is not provided. This was a significant disappointment as it signifies it won’t deal with my full wants. The solution is good but i will be getting in contact with amazon about the description of the product (which evidently states it is a ‘wireless soundbar with bluetooth.

So considerably extremely pleased with the soundbar it has improved the range of sound from our television and the speech is substantially clearer.

  • I think the unit is great. It was a little bigger than I was
  • If you want a reasonably priced soundbar that simply connects to a TV and don’t require Bluetooth this soundbar could fit the bi
  • SB60LX does not have bluetooth
  • Improved my listening experience
  • Awesome bit of kit
  • A good quality, solidly made unit without the frills of more expensive alternatives.

I failed to like this at very first, not having owned a soundbar of any description just before, as the programme i was looking at when i first set it up experienced a great deal of adult males conversing, and this was producing a hideous sum of reverb, even with the television set sound off and almost everything plugged in properly on a flat table with nothing at all about the sides. On the other hand i tried using a few of other programmes / films, and by modifying the treble up and the bass down i acquired it so it wasn’t reverberating nastily. Now i am quite delighted with the treble / bass amount and i can say that the orbitsound sb60lx does make a very first rate enhancement on the otherwise ample audio from my four yr aged sony bravia. My dwelling space is huge (33 foot and double-top) and the orbitsound seriously does fill the place nicely, and you get that influence exactly where if you go away the room and one thing violent arrives on when you happen to be somewhere else in the home you quickly question if someone’s in fact staying attacked in your dwelling place (i. Past time i knowledgeable that it was with total keep an eye on speakers and a audio mixing-desk plugged into the telly. I would consider there are much better soundbars on the marketplace probably but at £139. ninety nine as it was on amazon two times later 🙁 i would say it’s worth the funds. Other reviewers have commented on the dimension of the box – it is rather significant but in iteself that is not a issue beneath the telly. However the dazzling blue light on the entrance, now that is irritating and that’s why i give it four stars not five. You cannot switch it off when in use and you cannot hinder it devoid of avoiding the distant from working. This blue light-weight then stares you in the eye non-cease, and attracts notice to the hugeness of the box which is all v.

I chose this since it was an all in 1 program with an integrated sub woofer. The audio it provides, especially tunes is amazing for a little cupboard. It is a incredibly good system at a competitive cost.

I bought 1 of these for my lover who had no speakers other than the television set kinds and he cherished it. It was so excellent i then bought myself one. Extremely easy to install, excellent obvious seem, designed the dialogue so much less difficult to listen to. Great bass if which you can turn up or down based on what you like. We viewed a sifi film the other night time and experienced it up loud and i could feel the vibration on the explosions and many others. It presents great separation of sound, like you get with household cinema several speakers but all in a person box which is tidy and basic to set up. It can be quite huge and heavy, worth checking the dimensions will perform for your room. It demands to sit directly under your television with room at the sides as well as the front. At initially we put it in the shelf opening in the television unit (a wood box design and style just one) but there was only a few of inches possibly side of it which affected the speakers on the sides so we moved it to directly less than the television which produced the tv set a pair of inches better but seem was much better.

Very small info on volume control on rear of device.

    Excellent piece of kit, with a great sound. Every now and then the sound disappears and i struggle to get it back easily but i think this has to do with the tv rather than the orbitsound system (teenagers fiddling with settings and denying it) tv sound is enhanced and films / movies sound excellent. All in, i’d recommend this item.

    Excellent sound and much improved dialogue on dramas & documentary. Great sound box, especially for the price. The only downside is the remote. Looks cheap but then the whole set was cheap so can’t complain. I did think there was the choice in the box of either silver or black front but only a black front was in there. Not sure if this was a mistake but we wanted black so no problem.
      • What a difference a sounbox makes. We have a samsung 3d tv and have always been thrilled with it. Its only downside was the sound was sometimes not as clear as we would have wished – especially when people are whispering in films or there is a lot of background noise over the speech. Then one day we were in currys and saw a demo of a soundbox. My goodness what a difference. So i came home and researched all the boxes on amazon. Based on the reviews i ordered this one and we are really thrilled with it. Its quite a substantial box – made of wood and painted black. For best results your tv sits on the soundbox so make sure your tv base will fit onto it. You get the best results this way as the soundbox has 5 speakers and should not be inside a cupboard or enclosed tv unit to get the full effect of the sound system.

    A good quality, solidly made unit without the frills of more expensive alternatives. . A neat and clean looking sound bar which considerably improves the quality compared to the comparatively ‘thin’ sound from the television set loudspeakers. It is of solid construction, and happily supports a 36″ panasonic plasma television. The black loudspeaker grill on the front may be swapped for a silver grill, which is supplied with the unit. The orbitsound accepts both optical and audio inputs. The remote control seems to be for a more complicated unit as there are some buttons that do nothing. The orbitsound does not have built-in bluetooth capability, but seems well suited as a no-frills audio extension unit. The default audio level may be set by a control on the back of the unit, but it seems that the other settings, such as bass, treble and ‘source’ input (optical, av connector or phono connector) are lost when the unit is switched off (not on standby). When switching on again, the source input must be re-selected, as well as the bass and treble settings if the default settings are not suitable. There is no visual indication of the bass, treble and source settings as the only visual display is a single blue (on) or red (standby) indicator, which flashes to show that the unit is accepting commands from the remote control.
    • So far very pleased with the soundbar it has improved the range of sound from our tv and the speech is much clearer.

    Highly recommended as a great value sound improvement system for your tv. . I got the sb60 (the black glossy piano finish one available for £199 from john lewis) yesterday and am pleased to say it works for me and my aging hearing. It is very simple to connect with either optical (if your tv has one) connection or headphone output. The sound is a vast improvement on my new sony bravia speakers and has more power than i suspect you will need. Volume on mine is turned down low so other family members are not annoyed and i can still hear speech very clearly and benefit from from a huge range from low bass on some music tracks to high treble while maintaining clarity in mid range. I highly recommend the sb60 for anyone wishing to improve the disappointing sound of many modern flat screen tv’s. I run this with a humax fox t2 pvr and haven’t encountered any problems with set up or connections. I am very pleased that i won’t be needing a hearing aid or headphones to watch tv for some time yet.
