NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Orb Audio, a leading maker of high performance, decor-friendly audio products, announced today the launch of an all new Mini-T, the company's innovative micro-sized Class T amplifier designed for use with computers, televisions, iPods and most mobile devices.

The new Mini-T is even smaller than the original Mini-T and features a new glossy black cabinet, improved signal path design, and the first dedicated subwoofer output available at this price and size.  When paired with Orb Audio's compact speakers and subwoofers, consumers can achieve the highest quality output from the smallest possible package.

Like its predecessor, the new Mini-T allows consumers to use high-quality home speakers instead of resorting to cheaply designed self-powered speakers.  The new Mini-T can be paired with speakers already found in the consumer's home, or can also be combined with Orb Audio's award-winning Mod1 and Mod2 speakers.  Either way, the result is a simple, easy to use solution that brings high-quality audio performance to almost any device.

The new Mini-T is still based on the legendary T-Class amplifier technology.  It 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."

Available as a standalone product for $69, the Mini-T can also be purchased in a package with two Orb Mod1 speakers for $299.  For consumers who desire a more traditional surround sound setup, Orb Audio also offers complete home theater systems to fit most needs and budgets.

About Orb Audio

Orb Audio is committed to being different. From the beginning in 2002, it has been our intention to deliver speaker systems with the finest quality components, an attractive, upscale design and an affordable price. The only way to accomplish all of this was to be different from the other players in the industry, make our speakers in the United States, and to sell them to our clients directly to avoid substantial (and totally unnecessary) markups. Our satellite speakers are manufactured in the United States by craftspeople with years of experience in electronics assembly. We do not have to take mass market considerations into our design, so we can design our speakers for one thing -- performance.
