  1. Hello, Iam confused between Samsung HW-B67E/XL, ZEBRONICS Juke BAR 9750 PRO and this Obage CA-1 Model.
    I always wanted an Actual surround sound system but was upset that nowadays its mostly Soundbars that is available. Iam Really happy that Obage has offered Actual 5.1 system. My only concern is – does it really provide Actual 5.1 effect? does it give all minute nuances of sound or does it misses something as it is not Dolby supportive? does it really produce 5.1 actual audio or it digitally makes the audio 5.1?

    My Living room is a 225 Sqft open Hall with a Slant ceiling, which one of these home theaters do you suggest me?

    Please do reply, Iam really very confused between these systems and don’t want to regret my purchase.

  2. Hello VM One Team,

    You guys are doing an amazing job. Keep it up.

    It may sound a stupid question but can this Obage CA 1 be compared with JBL Bar 9.1 or atleast JBL Bar 5.1? I need an honest opinion.

    I want to buy a home theatre system mainly for watching movies. Hence looking for opinion.

    Do you guys provide consulting services as well? Please let me know.

    1. Obage sound systems are good for under Rs 25000. However, the JBL sound system is just next level.
      No, we don’t provide consulting services.

  3. Sir, I am trying to order this system from Amazon but it says it can’t be delivered to my city. How can I get it? Please help me.

  4. need a sound bar for music and gaming
