Orbitsound M12 Bluetooth Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer, Bamboo

Special offer

    Bamboo - Exclusive to John Lewis

Product information

The Orbitsound M12 combines the best of sound bar and subwoofer technology to deliver an exceptional listening experience - despite being just 60cm wide. Whether watching movies, TV or just listening to music, the Orbitsound M12 uses a spatial array of nine speakers (eight in the soundbar, one in the subwoofer) to create immersive audio without a complicated setup.

Key benefits:

  • Orbitsound’s Spatial Sound Technology (SST) uses side firing speakers and special sound encoding to radiate sound throughout your sitting room. This means that everyone can enjoy being in the sweet spot, wherever they’re sitting.
  • The M12 also comes with a high power, down firing, wireless subwoofer. It’s the power of the subwoofer that enables such a high definition wide-band sound. The whole package is engineered to stay in sync. The volume of the subwoofer can also be independently set by a volume control on the subwoofer itself.
  • Stream to the M12 from any compatible Bluetooth device and enjoy simple wireless enjoyment of stored media. The M12 manages your Bluetooth connection cleverly. Simply press the Bluetooth button (or press play from the included remote control), and the M12 will ‘grab’ your device’s Bluetooth connection and continue playback. The remote control can also skip or rewind tracks on a connected device.
  • This combo is made of wood for superior acoustic resonance. The soundbar is deep high gloss and finished with a metal front grille that sits on damping mounts. The subwoofer is finished in a tough matt finish to prevent unwanted marking.
  • The M12 features digital amplifiers and wireless power control to save energy on standby or when it’s idle. The subwoofer also shuts down and resumes when it’s needed.
  • Easy connection to a TV is possible through the included optical cable. Other connections include mixing analogue inputs on RCA and jack, allowing connection to almost anything. And of course Bluetooth provides simple wireless connection.
  • Includes: M12 sound bar, down firing wireless subwoofer, remote control, User’s guide, quick start guide, TOSLINK digital optical cable, 3.5mm stereo jack cable, RCA audio/video cable, power cords.

Q & As

Orbitsound M12 Bluetooth Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer 4.2 5 14 14
Would Definitely Recommend! After looking at the various options we liked the Orbitsound M12 so we bought it and hooked it up to our TV. We were immediately blown away by how good it was. So far we've used it mainly for Game of Thrones and bluetoothing music but even on fims and normal daytime telly we switch it on and enjoy the brilliant sound that the bar produces. Initially we were put off by the extra remote but we quickly saw its value!! In short the M12 looks great, sounds great, and was great value for money. COULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT ENOUGH!!!!!!!!! 31 March 2014
Great sound and First Class Customer Support This is a great product broadcasting from the front, sides and a base box giving a fuller acoustic distribution; the quality of the product and the sounds it produces are first class. The customer support has also been brilliant. Buy British!! 19 February 2014
Great add on to TV Enjoying this product. Set up mystified us at first because of our old set, but found the answers on line. Would recommend. 18 February 2014
Not quite what I expected ! The M12 gives a good sound for its size but don't expect its acoustic performance to match a decent 5.1 system with separate speakers, it won't. The wireless subwoofer works well and has a reasonable range of adjustment to suit your "boom boom" preferences. The Bluetooth function works well for me - my smart phone connects immediately so I can listen to my favourite playlists. My main disappoinment is the time delay between the M12 receiving an optical signal and the actual sound produced by its speakers. There is an obvious "lip sync" delay and, unless the TV speakers are manually muted, there is an echo from the TV speakers. I live with what I bought but I would not recommend it if you expect the effects good 5.1 sound provides and poor lip sync annoys you! 09 February 2014
Good product A big improvement on the flat screen tv speakers, also the right size to fit on tv stand shelf without overhang. Had to change the wireless subwoofer channel a couple of times to stop drop out due to other equipment interference. Would be five stars if it had dolby decoder. 14 January 2014
Impressive sound.. I got orbitsound M12 as a present. I was very sceptical about sound bars to start with (as I was planning to buy 5.1 system instead). Boy I was totally surprised when I switched on this soundbar. My room is 16 x 15.4 and this soundbar fill the room with ease. Adequate bass and nice quality sound even when you listen to dialogues [If you are looking for surround sound soundbar is not for you] Pros: 1. Very less wire (one optical cable to connect to TV & 2 power cables) - My wife is very happy 2. Very easy to set up 3. Looks nice with my Samsung 3D TV 4. Bluetooth is a huge + 5. Adjustable sub woofer 6. John Lewis 2 Years warranty Cons: 1. Could have been tad cheaper 2. Not wall mountable 14 January 2014
Glad I bought this I bought the M12 for my Samsung TV after hearing several other soundbars in the shop. This one had the best sound for the price and I have not been disappointed with it since getting it home. The soundboard was very easy to set up out of the box and the only difficulty I had was that the remote control did not work. I e-mailed Orbit thinking that it might be a battery fault and they sent a battery immediately by post. However, the fault was with the whole remote. Again, I contacted orbit sound and they immediately replied and sent me a new remote. I was very impressed with their excellent customer service so would certainly recommend them. 04 January 2014
Simple to use, lovely rounded sound Very fast delivery with exceptional manufacturer packaging. Unit is so simple to install and set up. Play around with the location of the speaker & bass unit to get a better understanding of sound. Great for classical music as the settings can be played with in order to get the perfect mix of treble bass fade etc. TV is good too providing a nice challenge of differing genre. Sound quality was so vastly improved on cheaper competitors - even some of the big sound specialist brands were very disappointing in comparison. 03 December 2013
