$! SALE ZVOX SoundBase 570 Home Theater Sound System Review
Only 3.5" high, the ZVOX SoundBase® 570 home theater system can be placed beneath your flat-panel TV so you can have surround sound without adding a lot of clutter to your room. It requires no external speakers, subwoofer or speaker wires. The 570 reproduces TV shows, music and movie soundtracks with lifelike accuracy, including crystal-clear vocals and thunderous bass. And the ZVOX PhaseCue® virtual surround system delivers remarkable three-dimensional sound.
With aptX Bluetooth connectivity, you can stream music from your phone or tablet wirelessly. The entire sound bar system, including five full-range speakers, amplifier, virtual surround technology and powered subwoofer, fits into a single slim cabinet. With only one connecting cord and a one-page owner's manual, it is truly "plug and play." The cabinet is robustly constructed using fully-braced MDF (medium density fiberboard), not molded plastic. The 570 includes the ZVOX AccuVoice® feature, which uses hearing aid technology to create super-clear voice reproduction - no more turning up the sound to understand what's being said! And the Output Leveling feature automatically turns down loud commercials. You can also program the ZVOX system so that it works with your current remote control. A large, easy-to-read display is hidden under the front grille, and disappears when you're not using it.
The SoundBase 570 is an ideal home theater system for people who want great sound, great style and innovative features - without the clutter and complexity of conventional surround sound systems.Great Sound.
The most important feature for any home theater system is high quality sound. The 570 uses a new amplifier design with extremely accurate frequency response and creates a warm, natural sound and surprisingly powerful bass.PhaseCue® Virtual Surround Sound.
The 570 uses ZVOX's proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround processing to give you rich, three-dimensional sound with movies or music. With music, PhaseCue creates a very wide soundstage - it literally sounds like you are listening to speakers eight feet apart from each other. When listening to a good movie, the soundtrack will envelop you, putting you in the middle of the action. While no virtual surround system - including ours - will give you the surround effects of a good 5.1 system, the ZVOX 570 does a remarkable job. Sound Vision magazine calls our PhaseCue processing "remarkably ingenious."Built-In Bluetooth Wireless Audio
After a thorough search where we tested a large number of options, ZVOX chose the BlueGiga Bluetooth solution for our new SoundBase systems. Compared to the other systems we tested, the BlueGiga module provided much more reliable connectivity and better range. It also allows for superior audio quality with fully digital internal connections and the aptX software codec. We don't know of a Bluetooth solution that offers better connectivity, range and sound quality than BlueGiga. (Note: The Bluetooth connectivity offered by ZVOX Platinum Series systems is primarily designed to allow wireless streaming of music from iPods, phones and tablets. While some TV sets offer Bluetooth audio output, the TV manufacturers sometimes make it impossible for those signals to be received by audio systems from other brand names. Because of this we recommend that our customers connect their ZVOX systems to their TVs using digital or analog connecting cables, which are supplied in the box with your ZVOX system.)
