Review: Orbitsound A70 airSOUND Bar

Get crystal-clear audio from anywhere in the room



British company Orbitsound is rapidly building up a reputation as a provider of high quality speakers and its latest offering is the A70. This is a long, thin, sleek Soundbar that is designed to provide excellent sound wherever the listener is in the room.

Thanks to its airSOUND technology and side-firing speakers, it ensures that sound reaches both ears at exactly the right time for an immersive experience. This worked really well when we tested it and blocking one ear resulted in a noticeably different listening experience. It felt like we were listening in surround sound despite the fact we were in front of, or at an angle, to a single speaker.

Set up is really simple and takes less than ten minutes. Hooking the Soundbar up to the TV is a matter of plugging it in and altering a couple of settings, so there shouldn’t be much difficulty here.

The sound that the A70 produced was top quality, rich, clear and with a thudding low bass. It is designed primarily to replace your TV’s speakers, but it also utilises NFC and Bluetooth technology so it will also let you play your music through it via any of your Android devices.
