Orbitsound SB60 airSOUND BASE Sound Base, Piano Black

Product information

The SB60 airSOUND BASE is a compact, high gloss TV sound system that delivers a rich and immersive sound without needing satellite speakers or even a separate subwoofer. Ideal anywhere that space is at a premium, the 200W output is still powerful enough to fill larger spaces.

Key benefits:

  • The SB60 is easy to set up, and delivers a fantastic TV sound experience. It includes an optical cable to get the best sound from your TV. With an airSOUND BASE, you can enjoy your TV, movies and games with a truly amazing soundtrack.

  • Because the airSOUND BASE sits under your TV, it fits seamlessly and attractively into your home, taking almost no more space than a stand mounted TV. It comes with 2 interchangeable panels (black and silver) that can change the look of the unit in seconds.

  • Orbitsound believe that wood is the best material for making speakers. This is why the SB60 is constructed from wood gloss to give a deeper acoustic performance.

  • The main sound is provided from two centrally mounted speakers that are proximity mounted to optimise dialogue clarity. The panorama of sound is rounded out by 2x2-inch side firing airSOUND speakers.

  • A 5-inch down-firing subwoofer is specially designed and optimised bass enclosure. The five driver system works in perfect harmony to give a complete listening experience from a single super low profile box.

  • Includes a remote control, power supply, analogue audio cable, optical cable, fascias and protection pads.

About Orbitsound

Orbitsound began making a name for itself back in the 1960s when its founder started designing and building bespoke recording equipment from a London based studio. Over the years, Ted Fletcher built equipment for famous faces including Jethro Tull and The Who. He then moved into the telecoms industry to develop some of the very first hands-free in-car systems and noise cancelling telecoms systems for bank traders in the 80’s.

But perhaps the most impressive audio tech to date is airSOUND, which was created in 2005. The small team of British musicians, audio engineers and Ted Fletcher, even believe that this is the best way to enjoy good music. Which is why they bring airSOUND to your home in the simplest way possible, in a home cinema system.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb Sound Quality and 200 Watts! The Orbit sound bar for me has been a fantastic purchase. Just bought a budget 40" TV with everything but sound quality, this bar has it! I use a wheelchair and installed the device in about 5 minutes lining it up with my other items below for gaming and boy is it loud via an Optical lead from bar to TV and works via adjusting xbox1 settings. Not much more to add you also get a choice of facia be it silver or black either is sleek. It looks right, under my TV and not obtrusive and punches out the sound to your desired level with the bars remote (batteries included) I was wanting the old skool tall boy speakers but bought this and glad I did on Staff recommendation. Thank you. 10 November 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Just gone faulty We bought the Orbitsound system 28th November, 2014. Just today we noticed the sound not quite right with our TV and found the base at the bottom of the system is not working. Found our receipt so will be taking it back to the Cardiff store. We did notice the sound was different straight away. We haven't had any problems with it until today, but the very small remote control did start to rattle a few months after we bought it. 06 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solved the problem for us. This product was recommended to us by the staff and it has solved a problem of bad sound from the TV. Moved recently to an apartment with a lounge that has very high ceilings and an alcove for the TV where the sound seemed to be going, because the speakers were at the rear of the TV. This product has managed to throw the sound forwards and to the sides without having to install extra speakers. 01 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Orbitsound SB60 airSOUND BASE Sound Base I did not like the sound produced by the TV but did not want to purchase a Soundbar due to size restrictions. I was show this Sound Base by the Orbit Sound person who took the time to explain the benefits of using this type of system in my situation. After hearing the quality of the sound I was amazed at how good it sounded and purchased one. The orbit Sound person also informed me that I need not spend any money on cables because they were included, another bonus. 08 August 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Looks good If only I am able to connect it to my Recorder And DVD player recorder I will be over the moon,I will just keep trying Fingers crossed I may have to get somebody to do it for me. I think that will be the answer. 03 March 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Orbitsound SB60 Soundbase Ordering & Click & Collect worked quickly & smoothly - apart from having to remember my Password ! There could have been an issue on collection if I'd insisted on my Bus Pass (an official Photo ID) being accepted as equivalent to the Driving Licence ID option. I was intending to - and did - rely on my Credit Card anyway but Waitrose need to address this as it is discriminatory. As for the product, it meets my expectations: the on/off indicator lights are arguably larger/brighter than necessary but, unlike some reviewers, I haven't found this distracting. Beats me though why Orbitsound haven't included Bluetooth connectivity which is more or less standard nowadays on products of this type. On the other hand it did come with necessary cables and setting up was a doddle: only needed to get the wife to lift the TV up while I slotted the box underneath and connect the power and optical leads (the latter at the second attempt after learning I needed to remove the protective end caps !) 06 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Overcomes a common problem Sound is a massive improvement on the "tinny" sound from our flat screen TV. easy to install. 15 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Sound Quality Excellent product with great sound quality. Some might find the base overpowering however this is easily rectified by balancing up the sound using the remote, which is easy to do. This is a big unit, so care needs to be taken to measure up before you buy. Very easy to install with a choice of either fibre optic or hard wire connectors. 27 May 2014
