And you get all that, plus a built-in iPod dock, for £200.</p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/tv-and-hi-fi/news-nugget/orbitsounds-compact-t9-soundbar-is-the-size-of-a-subway-sandwich </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/orbitsound/orbitsounds-compact-t9-soundbar-size-subway-sandwich/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/orbitsound/orbitsounds-compact-t9-soundbar-size-subway-sandwich/news#comments Orbitsound T9 Thu, 14 Jun 2012 15:37:57 +0000 Luke Edwards 421573 at http://www.stuff.tv Orbitsound T12v3 http://www.stuff.tv/orbitsound-t12v3/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Subtle it ain’t, but it solves two problems affordably and effectively </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="478" height="500" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/orbitsound-t12v3-main_0_2.jpg?1364298577" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="478" height="500" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/orbitsound-t12v3-2_2.jpg?1364298577" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>This is the third incarnation of the Orbitsound T12. Sporting superior components inside the speaker and an upgraded subwoofer, the system aims to improve the sound from your TV and comes with the added bonus of an iPod dock.</p> <p>The USP is spatial sound, and there are three modes designed to spread sound around the room to varying degrees and eliminate the traditional sweetspot.</p> <p>There are both analogue (stereo/ 3.5mm) and digital (optical/coaxial) audio inputs, plus composite video outs for watching iPod videos on TV. No HDMI connections, though.</p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £300.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">8 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Orbitsound T12v3: seriously loud </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Sonically it’s a blast. It’s capable of going seriously loud and delivering staggering bass weight. We prefer the ‘normal’ sound mode – ‘wide’ swamps the room – but find it hard not to enjoy the party. TV dialogue has authority and clarity, and plenty of that heft, too.</p> <p>The sub could be better integrated –wireless would be handy to improve placement options – but for the money it’s hard to argue if you like it loud and proud.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Subtle it ain’t, but it solves two problems affordably and effectively</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /review/orbitsound-t12v3 </div> </div> </div> http://www.stuff.tv/orbitsound-t12v3/review#comments Orbitsound T12v3 Thu, 09 Feb 2012 12:32:41 +0000 Tony Horgan 421087 at http://www.stuff.tv
