Summary: These Orb speakers do not disappoint. My Orbs are used for the front channel on my Denon Receiver. These little guys produce some serious sound. You will definitely need a sub for the lows but that is expected with satellite speakers.
Beautifully Designed Speakers That Can Serve Multiple Purposes
18 March 2014
Summary: The Orb Mod 1 satellite speakers have a beautiful circular design breaking the mold of speakers in a rectangular box. The Orbs measure 4.25" in diameter. The 3" aluminum cone driver sets in a circular metal casing and has a rounded metal front grill. The Mod 1's have high quality custom gold plated brass binding posts and come with a metal desk stand.
Summary: The Orb Mini-T V2 along a pair of Orb Mod 1 speakers is a great way to create a tiny, good sounding audio system for a laptop or desktop computer setup. It really is the ideal package for a laptop audio setup since bookshelf speakers along with a mini amp would be way too large and cumbersome. The Mini-T along with the Mod 1's and a smartphone or tablet is an easy way to create a very small, good sounding audio system in a bedroom, garage, or kitchen.
Summary: I have been building an Orb system since 2010 with beautifully finished bronze speakers and HOSS hunk of solid steel stands. Had my system working perfectly and the soundstage (my measure of good sound - though bass and highs are fantastic too) is truly awesome - blowing away Bose, Mirage, and Polk - rivaling speakers that literally cost four times as much. I am not sure my friend's $20k Bang & Olufsen system sounds much better.
Summary: I bought these specifically for their total lack of any bass frequencies so I can focus on balances and ffects while mixing. I am very happy with the choice. I also picked them for their shape as they would cause almost no reflections from the main speakers when set on my console. They come with perfect little stands which can be secured with double sided tape or Velcro.
