"Great speaker system to complement HDTV"5.0 starson by cyjunkie
Pros: 1. Ease of use
2. No messy wires
3. Low Profile
4. Quality Audio: Sounds are crisp and the built-in woofer does a good job. Movies, TV, Sports, Music - all sound good, especially hearing dialog is no longer stressful! You dont need to up the volume!
Cons: 1. Definitely not for someone who wants awesomeness of a 5.1 / 7.2 home theater setup!
2. Can't think of anything else!
Summary: I spent a good 3-4 months looking for a complementing speaker system for my 42" TV. I live in an apartment and the TV is in the living room. I wasn't looking for a 5.1 system as it would have not received the all important wife-approval and for the fact that it might be a bit too loud for my neighbors. There were many soundbars I tested at local Frys and BB, the Sony 150, Polk 3000/6000, Bose, HK, JVC. I also posted on the avsforum to get some suggestions. Read all the good reviews abt Zvox and decided to give it a shot. Installation was a piece of cake - you need to check in advance what audio out your TV supports. Check Zvox website and keep the appropriate cables ready. The speaker comes with a cable but you still gotta check in advance if that is supported by your TV. Besides that, connect your speaker to the TV and you are all set! No need for a receiver at all. You can connect all device outputs to the TV and then one line to the Zvox. Else, it has two more input options (verify), so you can connect another device to the system. I also connect my iPod from the audio jack in front. Switching b.w inputs is a piece of cake. It has a nice LCD display hidden behind the grille. Also the TV sits comfortably on top. That's it! Enjoy the show :) I got my spkr five months back and these days I don't even notice it. It just blends well with the TV and makes listening enjoyable and consistent. Never had to fiddle around with settings to make it sound right, if you know what I mean!
Thanks for your submission!
