New Mod-series, two new subwoofers added to line
Boutique high fidelity home theater and stereo speaker systems manufacturer Orb Audio today announced the launch of a new line of speaker systems to mark the company's 10th anniversary. These systems feature newly-designed Mod1X, Mod2X and Mod4X speakers and two new compact subwoofer models, the subMINI and subONE. These are the first new speakers released by Orb Audio since the company began selling audio systems in 2003.
Audiophiles can customize each speaker to consist of one, two or four Orbs (Mod1X, Mod2X and Mod4X), depending on budget and sound requirements, and the system can be reconfigured at any time. Customers moving the system to a bigger room can simply add an additional Orb to some or all of the installed speakers for more output. Likewise, customers on a tight budget can start with an affordable audiophile system and build it up over time.
Orb Audio is also introducing two completely redesigned subwoofer models: subONE and subMINI. The new subONE features a new 200-watt amplifier and delivers improved low bass performance and accuracy. This high-performance sound is packed into a cabinet smaller than 12 inches on each side, and is available in a furniture-quality walnut finish for the first time. The subONE also features new anti-clipping and thermal overload circuits, as well as auto-voltage sensing technology for worldwide use.
The subMINI is an all-new ultra-compact subwoofer ideal for customers who want to fill a smaller living space with deep, full sound, whether from a television, computer or mobile device. The budget- and decor-friendly subwoofer features a 100-watt amplifier in a nine-inch cabinet that the company says can bring impressive bass to even the most limited spaces. The subMINI also features a dual-port design for a balance of bass performance and output volume. Both the subONE and subMINI are available with wireless options.
Featuring updated technology and improved audio performance, a 5.1 channel home theater system featuring the new speakers and subwoofers starts at $889. Redesigned stereo speaker and mini amplifier packages are also available and range from $249 up to $488. The new systems are available now online.
