Orbitsound P70w V2 Launched
Orbitsound, has launched its ONE P70W V2 wireless speaker and, again, we were there to experience it first-hand.
We were at the launch of Orbitsound's stunningly flexible, stylish and high-performance wireless speaker.
Following the impressive Air D1, naturally, the ONE P70W V2 is packed with innovative proprietary technologies developed by Orbitsound's British team of audio designers.
ONE P70W V2 Tech
The V2 is obviously an update on the previous ONE P70W, but loaded with the very latest Orbitsound tech – 'Transconductance Amplification'.
Transconductance works by the amplifier monitoring and adapting in real-time to the behaviour of the speaker drivers. This resolves incompatibilities between the amplifier and speaker and is the same tech you'll find behind Orbitsound's flagship Air D1 speaker costing £12,000.
You also get Orbitsound's unique and innovative Airsound technology. Airsound works by ingeniously splitting the central and non-central information in the stereo image to create a highly spatialised stereo-like sound from a single speaker. The added bonus to this is that no matter where you stand, you still get a great stereo sound.
The ONE P70W V2 contains top- and front-firing 2-inch Orbitsound MK4 drivers, as well as two identical side-firing drivers that channel the Airsound audio information.
A low-profile 5.25-inch integrated subwoofer is also present to fortify low-end performance.
Of course, we have spent some time with the new speaker and can vouch for both its clarity and the clever tech taking away the need for a sweet spot.
The 700 x 173 x 77mm (WxDxH) ONE P70W V2 can be used as a wireless music speaker as well as a soundbar; it even has two separate wall-mounting orientations depending on whether you want to mount it high or low on the wall. Furthermore, the logo badge can also be rotated for those of us that get twitchy when things don't look quite right.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity are both present, as is an optical connection for your TV and a 3.5mm AUX socket for other wired connections.
Additionally, you can access Spotify Connect and Apple Music via the app, along with Tunein Radio.
Price and availability
The ONE P70W V2 is available now for £399 in two finishes – Black and Bamboo.
