As the title suggests I'm deciding between these three sound bars. There is a great woot.com deal for the klipsch. I wish I could LISTEN TO THESE PRODUCTS before buying. Has anyone tried them?
I have a HTPC that feeds 100% of content to my LG LED TV. I am 100% fed up by the TV sound. its shallow, i have trouble hearing dialogue...UGH
So I have a $500 budget: I like pedestals better but sound quality is more important.
I have it narrowed down to:
I am looking to buy a soundbar for my parents and am looking for advice between the Zvox 555 and the Polk IHT 5000. I have selected those models in part due to their size. Many soundbars are too wide for my TV stand and will stick out over the edges. I realize the Zvox has built in subs and the...
I'm looking for a pedestal sound bar for my parents and I've never heard any of these three:
Energy Power Base
My parents won't be interested in faux surround sound. They just want to hear dialogue easier and have a fuller, richer sound.
I don't have any...
I have tried a number of sound bars, however we are constantly making adjustments to get a better dialog. (Tried visio, jvc, etc)
We are presently using the Sony HT-CT150.
I have read that the zvox 555 dialog is much clearer - better than the Sony HT-CT150 ?
I have an Sony KDL 55ex 710 and zvox555 soundbar.
HDMI from att uverse cable box to tv
Toslink cable from tv to zvox
When I'm on high deff channels sound is great.
When i switch to a standred channel the sound goes way down.
Is this normal?
I'm not sure what audio out options my pioneer 500M monitor has other than basic stereo outs. I guess that means I'd need a soundbar that would take HDMI inputs, to go in between the source and the monitor, in order to get the full surround audio information?
I guess that rules out something...
...I'm sure this has probably been done to death but bear with me if you would. I have a rather simple setup and I'm looking for a Harmony to reduce clutter.
My system needs are as follows:
55' VT60 panel
Fios DVR box (connected to TV by HDMI)
Panasonic Bluray player (connected to TV by...
...I got the Z-VOX 555 pedestal soundbar today and hooked it up using the optical audio out jack under the HDMI inputs of the TV. Problem is I can't seem to find a setting that allows me to "tell" the TV that I'm using an external sound system and to disable the built-in speakers. I'm thinking...
just looking for some help in choosing between the bose solo or the yamaha yas101. novice here!
Its just going to be used to enhance the sound for general tv viewing and films etc. dont expect it to be 5.1 sound quality.
i saw the bose and thought it sounded very good for my needs but looking...
I have a 52" LCD HDTV which sites on a low-profile TV stand. I have a spot directly beneath the TV (approx 6 inches off the ground) that measures 6 inches tall by 22 inches wide for a Soundbar/all-in-one speakerbox. My living is fairly small (an apt in Boston).
I'm no audiophile, I just want...
This is my first post here, but I have been following this forum since August, first to select a TV, which I bought couple of months back, and now, to select a soundbar.
Basic background: Apartment living room, 12x14, an LG 42lv5500 tv (first HDTV).
Current viewing pattern*:
Here is my “review” of the ZVOX Z-Base 555:
I recently purchases a Sony 46HX909 (a great TV!) and I found the speakers to be terribly anemic. I decided I wanted to get a sound system to beef up the sound. I didn’t want anything too elaborate or loud; my living room is not large. My wife...
I noticed that ZVOX introduced 2 new models in June: Z-Base 555 and Z-Base 580. They say these units include, among other new features, Dialog Emphasis (DE) which engages "a circuit that mimics the functions of a hearing aid. The frequencies used by human voices are dynamically emphasized...
