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.

Q & As

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
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
Rated 4 out of 5 by A vast improvement on TV speakers I would recommend this to anyone. I bought this as I didn't want a separate sub woofer. The Orbitsound is easy to setup, delivers great sound quality, and doesn't look out of place below a 32 inch tv. Only gripe is the remote control is tiny and we keep losing it! Would have been good to have some hidden controls on the soundbar itself. 07 March 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Orbitsound SB60 Sound Bar I regret to write that I had to return the item to John Lewis after about a week because I found there was no significant improvement in the quality of sound from my television. 18 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by absolutely brilliant We bought this after I read a review in a magazine. My husband is profoundly deaf and has a cochlear implant and a hearing aid so listening to speech particularly has always been very difficult especially if there was background noise or loud music. He has been able to watch so much more without having the subtitles on permanently, this has also made it more enjoyable for me as I am able to concentrate on the action on TV without being occupied reading the subtitles! It has been the best piece of equipment we have ever bought, just wish we had bought it sooner. 14 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good piece of equipment The airSound Base does a good job and I am very pleased with my purchase. I positioned it immediately below the TV on the black shelf of the stand where it is almost invisible and connection to the optical digital audio output was the work of a moment. The quality of the sound is a great improvement over that provided by the TV which is itself rated as above average for sound. Not surprisingly, the difference is most striking when listening to music where the experience is greatly enriched, but it also adds to the enjoyment of films and other programmes. The one point of criticism is the remote control which is flimsy and the functions of the narrow bars with which it is operated are labelled in letters about 1mm high. Anyone who does not have good eyesight and agile fingers may have difficulty with it. 13 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amazing sound We bought this sound bar for our Sony Bravia having heard a friend's sound bar and it's worth every penny! it fits well under our TV and can really hear the difference when we test it against the television's muffled sound. took 10 seconds to set up and is definitely worth the money 09 January 2014
