Orb Audio Home Theater Systems

April 9th, 2012 Comments off

With the cost of going to the movies over $20 for two people, home theater systems are popular as a viable alternative. People are staying home and enjoying their favorite sports, television and movies from the comfort of their armchairs. Especially true for young families with children, these systems are growing in demand. While every brand name in the TV manufacturing field offers their own home theater system, several brands are making a name for themselves by offering unique products.

It’s all about the sound. The true home theater experience centers around a sound system that can deliver the movie quality sound. For years Bose has been a leader in this segment. The Bose sound system was unique, innovative, and the most popular upgrade in this field. However, there is another company that is making a big splash in this arena.
Orb-Audio is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the home theater field.

Orb-Audio features a superb sound with a small, attractive design. Using the Bose idea that small design can produce big sound, Orb-Audio takes this concept and markets their products in a unique fashion. Their products are all marketed direct to the public through the internet. With a 30-day money back guarantee and plenty of options on product, this combination has proven quite successful in recent years.

Orb-Audio offers quality parts and service and the reviews on this product line are out-performing standard front runners like B & W, Mission and Bose. The real kicker is the price. In many cases, the price is 30 to 50 % less than many of the well-known names sold in retail stores. This product also can be purchased piece by piece so the consumer can pay over a protracted period of time. Orb-Audio products are also compatible with most TV’s and DVD players.

For a great budget-minded alternative that does not require the consumer to sacrifice quality or performance, these small round speakers are a wonderful alternative.
