Orbitsound M9 Compact TV Soundbar Coming to MMA!

Orbitsound M9

We have had the guys from Orbitsound in store today to show off their £200 M9 soundbar, which upon firing up delivered a impressive room-filling sound from such a tiny package.

Make no mistake, unlike rivals such as Bose, the M9 delivers a big sound but with genuine clarity and detail!

Key to its success is Airsound, to deliver a sound that is very spatial and engulfs the listener in sound. It presents a soundstage that is akin to a hybrid mix of stereo and mono but with height! Great for music over Bluetooth, but also very clear and distinct for dialogue for everyday TV viewing!

For the price it is really rather remarkable and is certain to please those who do not want a bulky or really wide soundbar to bolster their TVs audio performance.

A demo unit will be in store soon, so pop in to have a listen or get your order in here at MMA!!

Oppo Sonica Wireless Speaker launches in US.

OPPO Sonica

Considering the (rightly deserved) reputation OPPO have earned for reference quality Bluray players, it was a bit of a surprise when they entered the headphone and DAC market a couple of years ago.

That surprise carried over to the performance: the HA Series of DACs and PM Series of headphones have been a revelation!!

Now, in the USA at least for the moment, OPPO are entering the heavily contested Wireless Speaker market with the Sonica!

The design of the Sonica was handled by Igor Levitsky, who was also behind Oppo’s PM series of planar magnetic headphones, so anticipation of how well the Sonica performs is high!

The Sonica features two 15-watt amplifiers powering two 3.5-inch woofers and a pair of 3-inch bass radiators. The speaker features two additional 10-watt amplifiers powering two wide-range drivers. Two Sonica units can be paired for wider stereo as well.

Unlike headphones, speakers are affected by the room acoustics they are placed within, so the Sonica features built-in presets to adapt the sound to different room types, speaker positions, and listening preferences. All of these are controlled using an official app, available for iOS and Android (again currently US-only).

The Sonica offers Bluetooth connectivity and Wi-Fi, including AirPlay support.

The Sonica can handle high-resolution 2ch music files up to 24-bit / 192 kHz in FLAC, WAV, plus Apple Lossless formats. Music can come from a number of different sources, including USB sticks, DLNA servers, or NAS drives, with multiple built-in aerials and MIMO technology for the solid wireless signal stability.

There is no news on support for Streaming services as of yet, but undoubtedly this is being looked at before it makes it's way officially to the UK (probably the end of the year).

 

As soon as we get more info we'll let you know!!

Get Your Music Fix Out In The Sun – No Strings Attached!

Sennheiser Momentum 2_0 Wireless

With thoughts turning to Spring/Summer breaks (and wanting to capitalising on the few days of sunshine), many of us want get out, enjoy it, and take our music with us.

Convention headphones on are fantastic, but sometimes the tangle of wires or poor sound of most wireless models, means that many leave their music behind....well with the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless headphones you can have wireless convenience AND hifi performance!

The Momentum 2.0 Wireless combines the performance of their highly regarded Momentum Over Ear wired headphones (£269.99) with the convenience of Bluetooth wireless and Active Noise Cancelling for only £379.99!

It's one of the most stable and reliable Bluetooth implementations we have come across, and it's up-to-date profile support ensures great compatibility with current and older generations of smartphones/music players. Even more surprising is that compared to running the headphones with a conventional cable, the performance over Bluetooth is VERY close to wired.

The Active Noise Cancelling is also remarkably efficient, providing excellent isolation without ruining sound quality, unlike many other designs on the market.

A premium price for a premium product that gives a premium performance.....sorted!
