British audio brand Orbitsound has announced a new addition to its range in the shape of the compact T9.

For those short on space, the T9 acts both as a compact soundbar for boosting the sound on smaller TVs, as well as a speaker dock for your iPod or iPhone. At just 30cm long, its size also aims it squarely at secondary TVs in bedrooms and kitchens.

The T9 is also a good choice if you're looking to upgrade the sound on your set without a complicated set up - it involves the T9 unit itself and a small subwoofer to ensure your bass packs some punch.

As for sound quality, between the dock and the subwoofer, you'll get a room-filling 140 watts of audio. Orbitsound's patented spatial sound technology also means that no matter where you're sat in the room, you'll get the same audio experience.

The T9 will be available in black or white lacquered wood from mid-July with a price tag of £199.99
