Advantages: Surround sound without having to put up with wires everywhere
Disadvantages: Has some annoying functionality issues
I bought the Orbitsound T12 because I liked the idea of surround sound but I didn't wires all over my living room and from that perspective, it's perfect. The depth of the sound is very impressive, a very good alternative to a traditional surround sound system at a very reasonable price. The iPod dock is a great feature, just place your iPod in the top and you can play all your music and charge at the same time.
But despite all the positives, my Orbitsound spends most of the time switched off and used as an oversized iPhone charger. The thing I found most annoying was that placing an iPhone in the dock automatically switches the sound source to the iPhone, so if you're watching something you lose the sound until you use the remote control to switch back to tv. I realise that this doesn't sound a huge problem, but it's one of those things that gets very annoying- particularly if you're like me and can never find where you've put the remote. Also, the remote isn't sensitive enough and you have to point it exactly at the right place to get it to work.
I think it comes down to your budget- this gives good quality sound for a very reasonable price and is great value for money. But if your budget is less restrictive, it might be worth paying a little extra for improved functionality.
Summary: Good value for money
