first_imgOrb has been making some waves lately trying to undercut rivals like Sonos in the competitive streaming media market, mostly with affordable yet impressively featured gadgets like the Orb TV and Orb MP-1.We loved those two gadgets, but strangely, we’re even more excited about Orb’s latest product, even though it’s not really a gadget at all.
