I just ordered the Orb Mod 2 yesterday..... So it may arrive next week. I'm so excited about FINALLY being able to add sound to my home theater room.
My wife was adamant about a "small form factor"..... in her eyes, the smaller the better, and I didn't want the Bose ( though I am not a Bose hater ), so I went with the Orbs. My plan is to get the Mod 2 set up, and then order more speakers as needed, and it most surely will need a little more. The room is 700+ square feet - my entire attic, minus a closet and bathroom.
Tell me, assure me, that for my $1000, or under budget, I did the right thing. It kills me to have bought speakers without listening to them first, but then again, I have bough speakers before based on what I heard in the showroom, and been disappointed when they got home.
Yes, I did exceed my $1000 budget by $98..... I told my wife to call it a Christmas present!
