Review: Orb Audio home theater speaker system [U]

updated 03:45 am EST, Sat November 19, 2011

Tiny speakers claim to rival larger competitors

(Update: fixed link) Home theater enthusiasts for many years have drawn a close association between speaker size and sound quality, however many companies, such as Orb Audio, have worked to prove that big does not always mean better. Electronista took the opportunity to try out Orb's modular speaker system, which features an eight-inch standalone subwoofer and an array of seemingly tiny drivers contained in four-inch spheres. In our full review, we will determine if the Orb system is worthy of its premium price tag.

    Small speakers

    Great sounding small speakers is a contradiction. The laws of physics must apply. So speaker manufacturers turn to ad gimmicks and even exorbitant pricing to convince you small is better. It is not.
