Orb Audio Speakers

Orb Audio Speakers Bring Design, Scalibility

Looking to get some new speakers for the home entertainment center? Maybe you want something in your computer room. Something with performance and something that looks good. That is where Orb Audio comes in. Orb Audio is a modular speaker system that can give you simple or complex sound in your home. You can choose 2 speakers, or get the full 5.1 surround system for high definition movies and TV. Designed in the US, these speakers are no bigger than a softball – yet there is nothing soft about them. Connecting to a receiver, these speakers put out some sound.
