OFFICIAL ZVOX thread -- questions, reviews, etc.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey everybody,

So I've been diligently reading through all the major soundbar threads -- Davyo, Possumgirl and everyone else, you've been SO informative, thank you -- but I noticed that, with the exception of some scattered reviews and brief questions, there isn't a dedicated thread to ZVOX systems.

Normally I tend to gravitate towards audiophile tendencies, but if this system is a good compromise between quality, function and (dead-simple) ease-of-use, I'm game. For balance between aesthetics and performance, I think I'm leaning towards their newish Z-Base line, particularly the 420. I'm also interested in the Sony CT150, but something about ZVOX just calls to me.

I wanted to open a discussion about the current generation of boxes, their pros, cons, etc. Anything and everything people can share would be greatly appreciated.

js1182,

Perhaps one of the largest Zvox products threads on AVS Forum, including comparisons with other soundbars available at the time, is the one started by bron in 2009: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1109869/soundbar-type-solution-w-o-bouncing-sound/570. Granted, this is now a "historical" thread as the last posting was done in July 2011, but it does contain a significant number of posts (585) on various Zvox products that might be of interest to those looking for a soundbar.

Full disclosure - I did a review of the Zvox 550 for this thread. I still own the 550 and consider it an excellent speaker system for what I use it for and where I use it.

Hi,
I just purchase zvox 580 and I was wondering how everyone that own 580 is mounting their speaker? Reason I ask is because I have my tv mount over my fireplace and my mantel is only 8-9" long and the 580 is 16 1/2" long.

Thanks
