Orb Audio Announces New Mini-T Amp

 
Orb audio announced today a new and improved version of their Mini-T amplifier for computers, mobile devices, and TVs.
 
The original Mini-T was an innovative micro-sized Class T amplifier designed for use with a variety of devices like the ones mentioned above. The new Mini-T is even smaller than the original and features a new glossy black design, and a dedicated subwoofer output, the only amp of its size available with such a feature.
 
The Mini-T allows consumers to use high fidelity home speakers as opposed to cheaply designed self-powered speakers. The Mini-T is compatible with speakers already found in your home, or can be used with Orb Audio’s Mod1 and Mod2 speakers.

The new Mini-T features incredibly low harmonic distortion (just .04%) and high quality, crystal clear output. For 2013, Orb Audio has upgraded to “gold pin” Tripath amplifier chips and completely redesigned the signal path to reduce noise to the lowest levels yet achieved in a Mini-T design. The addition of a subwoofer output also means that consumers can now enjoy deep, powerful bass without resorting to a full size and expensive home theater receiver.
 
The original Mini-T has been extremely popular since the day we launched it, because it solves the problem of getting home speakers to work with computers, TVs, mobile devices and tablets,” said Ethan Siegel, co-founder and CEO of Orb Audio. “Of course, we always look to improve our products and the new Mini-T both sounds better and looks better, and is also significantly smaller than our first model. It can now also easily be used with powered subwoofers to achieve room-filling bass. The best part is that the new Mini-T is only $69, which is more than 20% lower than the price of the original Mini-T when it was launched in 2011.
 
The Mini-T is retailing for $69 as a standalone product, or in a bundle with two Orb Mod1 speakers for $299. For more info, go to www.orbaudio.com.
