Hi, I'm trying to find out if there are owners of the Orbaudio sat speakers/sub in S'pore?  www.orbaudio.com

 

Saw a tread not too long ago that some are thinking of ordering it from US.

Would appreciate if can share the experience, especially the sound signature compared to AG (much more expensive) as well as usual box sat spkrs.

 

Thanks.

someone on here owns a set but he hardly ever posts anymore (maybe he might chime in if he sees this thread). Clarity was there - I heard it briefly after being just set up and not calibrated. but not after being broken in (Panasonic XR55 takes some time as well). IIRC, some people on AVS are using the same combo quite happily.

Bought one set in mar, MOD 2. one of them was faulty and they send the replacement immediately within 7 days. SQ close to AG, almost 90%, co-founder of AG. Nice setup for small space in HDB, WAF high, modern look, blend in with setting. ;D

So far the Orb sounds good to my ears. I was basically looking for a small size speakers that is acceptable to the missus and a bit like Bose size. So far very happy with sound (inexperienced listener). This is my first HT system and I must say for the price I think its worth it. ;D

an alternative is Morel speakers, saw a shop in Adelphi selling these.

the Soundspot LI-1 MK II or SL-1 MKII are quite similar in appearance to the Orb speakers.

not sure about the SQ, but I'm sure it's good. Had a chance to hold it, pretty heavy, sure sign of a good speaker.

Thanks guys for the inputs. Did you purchase the sub as well or you bought one locally? Which leads to my next qn: which sub is a good match?

 

I enquire from them about shipping cost on the complete People's Choice system and is quoted US$185. Still thinking as the shipping cost is not a small amount. Was considering just to get the sats and source for the sub locally... rational being sub is heavier and loaded with electronics, so any problems, shipment will be a hassle.

 

I'm looking at Definitive Tech Pro1000/800 as well, tho' looks/size wise can't beat the Orb. But at least can audition. Music is as important to me as HT, so the system neeeds to be musical.

I purchased the Orb with the Sub. Managed to save a lot on shipping as a friend was in states and he pick it up for me. US$9.00. The Subwoofer weight quite a lot in comparison to the speakers. The weight is enough to turn my friend off from buying anything resembling speakers for me again :( :(
