Orbitsound M9 Bluetooth Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer, Bamboo

Special offer

    Bamboo - Exclusive to John Lewis

Product information

The Orbitsound is a sound bar and subwoofer combo that delivers huge sound from a small package. Perfect for listening to music or TV sound from a second room or smaller TV set, the Orbitsound M9 powers out startling high definition sound from it’s incredibly small footprint. Along with easy-to-use Bluetooth streaming, it’s ready to add a whole new dimension to your media.

Key benefits:

  • Spatial Sound Technology (SST) uses side firing speakers and proprietary sound encoding to radiate sound throughout the room. The M9 creates a spatial sound environment that fills your space, so ALL listeners enjoy the soundscape wherever they are sitting.
  • The M9 comes with a high power, low profile, high-speed wireless digital subwoofer. The ultra-low latency 2.4GHz connection means that the sound is always in-sync with the sound bar, delivering a seamless sound, yet with the flexibility of wireless operation, and the high fidelity of a lossless digital connection. Extremely slimline, it can be positioned anywhere within eight metres of the sound bar (completely out of sight if required).
  • High quality Bluetooth streaming to the sound bar from any compatible Bluetooth device means simple wireless enjoyment of streamed or stored media. The M9 manages your Bluetooth connection cleverly. Simply press the Bluetooth button (or press play from the included remote control), and the M9 will ‘grab’ your device’s Bluetooth connection and continue playback.
  • 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 M9 features digital amplifiers and wireless power control to save energy on standby or when it’s idle. The M9 will wirelessly shut down the subwoofer and resume it when it is needed and minimise its own power needs as much as possible.
  • Easy connection to a TV is possible through the included optical cable that delivers digital clarity of whatever TV, film, game or music is being watched on the TV. Other connections include mixing analogue inputs on RCA and jack, allowing connection to almost anything. Bluetooth provides a wireless connection point.
  • Includes: M9 sound bar, low profile 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.


Don't forget...
If you want to connect the soundbar to the television, then you'll need a HDMI cable.

Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing Sound We purchased an M9 back in April this year and we have been thrilled with the results. The 42 inch Sony TV we had previously purchased had very poor sound quality but this tiny unit has transformed our TV enjoyment. Vocals are now clear and when watching films the small subwoofer packs an amazing punch.I did read some of the previous comments regarding problems with the Bluetooth connection and I can only say that so far it has worked perfectly with both my Samsung phone and Ipad. 08 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sound! Fantastic sound quality, easy set up, all round great product! Really pleased with it so glad I bought it! 29 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wow what an amazing sound for a little box I highly rate this sound bar (box), very rich sound at all levels of volume and styles of sound e.g. Sport or movies. The only reason I haven't rated it a 5 is the cost, which if a little more reasonable would be 5*. 08 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant soundbar! After an excellent demonstration, I bought the Orbitsound M9 to go with my new LED TV, and I am very glad that I did. The M9 is very powerful, especially considering the size of the unit - I barely notice it in front of my TV but I use it to fill my whole studio - and I really do get the same sound quality wherever I am. The bluetooth function is great and unlike some of the other reviewers on here, I have had no trouble with connectivity dropping between the bar, subwoofer or my phone. Above all else, speech sounds clear and the bass tones are good for films and my music. I would definitely this product. 18 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow We were very gently up-sold this, and haven't been disappointed. It is now the best sound system we have in the house - so provided the tv is off - we try and play all our music through it using the bluetooth feature. It also has the benefit of giving a very clear tv sound, without the sound escaping from the room - so no more children coming downstairs complaining about the tv volume. Thoroughly recommended. 16 June 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by sold a pup We bought an LG smart TV and were recommended this sound bar by a John Lewis member. The good news is that it has a great sound as demonstrated in the shop. The bad news is it is a complete waste of time and money at home. It did not talk to the television and therefore we could not control the sound from the television remote. The Bluetooth I gave up even trying to work and worst of all it buzzed when you turned it on. Load of rubbish with our television . John Lewis were happy to swap it but did waste two hours driving back to the local store. 08 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Gift for parents - Great Clarity Purchased the M9 for my parents as a gift. I already have the M12 in my house. For the size of the unit it really packs a punch. Purchased from the Kingston store- very helpful people. Considering; Size, Power and Price I would recommend. 16 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spot on Just moved back to the UK and did not know about sound bars until I went shopping in John Lewis. Looked at loads of ghastly plastic and metal things which are so long and would look stupid and ugly in front of my TV. Was shown the Orbitsound M9 and was quite staggered at the power but more importantly impressed with the explanation of the air sound technology which meant I didn't have to sit in only one spot to get the best quality sound. Great demo in store and really, really pleased with the product. I have noticed some reviews which I read after I bought this and they have been quite damming of the product. I had drop off and bluetooth problems myself , but it was apparently my broadband receiver sitting too close to it that interfered with the signal. I spoke to John Lewis who directed me to Orbitsound support and they told me about changing the channel on the back. This solved the problem and I cannot rate this highly enough. It is small and discreet which pleases me greatly and the sound is incredible for such a small unit. Granted, I don't have surround sound with bullets whizzing past my ears but I don't want speakers and cables around my room and the surround sound used to frighten my cats anyway! But the immersive sound is so good. Would highly recommend. Good to buy British too and something made from wood(!); too used to buying cheap rubbish overseas! Gutted I bought this before the Bamboo versions came out, but may treat myself to one for the conservatory if the 'Boss' agrees! 16 May 2014
