Orbitsound debuts T14 soundbar
If you want surround sound but you haven't got room for lots of speakers and wires then look no further than the new T14 soundbar, which was unveiled at the CES tech show in Las Vegas.
The innovative product builds on the success of the brand's previous model (the T12) and also sports the same groundbreaking spatial stereo technology that means that, unlike ordinary stereo, there is no need to be in the ‘sweet spot’ to get the full effect. The T14 also sports a studio-class amp that's been in development for eight years and which automatically adjusts itself to the room to offer the best sound.
The soundbar comes with a wireless subwoofer, while the device also uses a remote 'o-dock' for iPod and iPhone that broadcasts music directly to the speaker without the need for a transmitter or wires. The dock also sports an aux input for wirelessly connecting a TC, PC or laptop to the T14.
Packing 120W of speaker power, the T14 can be wall mounted and is also equipped with both 3.5mm stereo and RCA analogue jacks and inputs for hooking up the latest digital TVs, MP3/MP4 players, laptops, desktop computers and games consoles.
The product is the brand's first global launch and also marks its debut in the North American market and will be available later on in the year costing around $600 in the US and £400 in the UK.
Orbitsound's innovative audio wizardry is the brainchild of former musician and renowned audio electronics designer Ted Fletcher, who has previously worked with the likes of The Eagles, Elton John and legendary producer Joe Meek.
