Orbitsound announces M9 and M12 soundbars with Bluetooth connectivity and wireless subwoofer

Orbitsound announces M9 and M12 soundbars with Bluetooth connectivity and wireless subwoofer

UK-based audio clothing Orbitsound has actually simply revealed a new bluetooth-enabled variety of soundbars. You might remember the British company for its T14, T12– or even more recently– T9 offerings, however the latest line-up cuts the cable television, opening a host of brand-new audio sources. So, it’s out with the old 30-pin dock, but there’s still optical, AUX, video out, RCA and 3.5 mm jack hookups if you choose to keep things physically linked. It’s not just the sound source that’s on the loose either, as the friend active subwoofer uses a custom low-latency 2.4 GHz connection (claimed to be 0.01 seconds delay) too– no more hiding wires around the back. Other brand-new features consist of a new digital amplifier, a Bluetooth remote, and a settings memory to keep in mind your source, volume and EQ levels for next time. Not nearly enough? Exactly how about a “grab” function that instantaneously starts playing the last media from a paired phone or tabled? The company’s proprietary spatial sound? That, obviously, continues to be present. There are two designs to select from, the M9 for smaller sized TVs, and the M12 for the larger set in your front space. Expect to pay & pound; 299 (about $ 450) and & pound; 399 (about $ 600) respectively when they launch in March. UK retailer John Lewis will be getting them initially, but online orders and “select” individual stores ought to follow.

Libratone’s AirPlay-enabled soundbars want to cozy up with your iOS wares

Libratone Lounge
Been on the prowl for an audio solution with AirPlay to compliment your iDevice or Apple TV? Bid hello to Libratone’s ultra-chic Lounge and Live soundbars. Last year, the company introduced its eye-catching Beat wireless speaker system back at IFA; we were intrigued by its active drivers and carry handle, but mildly disappointed that cord-cutting required pesky proprietary adapters. Apple users will be happy to know AirPlay’s been fully embraced this time, along with the signature adornment of cashmere wool. First up, the Live appears to be an Airplay-enabled Beat with 50 extra watts of RMS power (150 total), and an updated — mini TOSlink accepting — 3.5mm input for hooking up non AirPlay-enabled gear. Next up, the sleek Lounge unit above sports a similar external design and digital 3.5mm jack, but it’s svelte in comparison for wall-mounting under a TV. Under its sheep fuzz, you’ll find two 1-inch ribbon tweeters, two 4-inch ceramic drivers, and one 8-inch inverted woofer, all of which are independently amplified for a combined output of 150 RMS watts.

Poised to please audio enthusiasts, both employ DSP and Libratone’s FullRoom for a “360 degree soundscape” controllable via an iOS app, while the Lounge’s volume can also be handled by a TV remote. The Lounge will be available through Apple’s online store this September priced at £1,099 to €,1199 (about $ 1,791 to $ 1,954), and the Live for £599 to £6,99 ($ 699) at Apple retail locations in the EU and US — both in various colorways. You’ll find details in the PR after the break while your next bout of Gear Acquisition Syndrome begins settling in.
