Default ZVOX Unveils the Z-Base 550 All-in-one Home Theater

ZVOX is pleased to announce the Z-Base 550, a complete home theater system built conveniently into a base platform for stand-mounted flat-panel TV sets. Based on several design innovations from ZVOX, the Z-Base 550 sounds absolutely terrific–reproducing music and movie soundtracks with lifelike accuracy. But the entire system–speakers, amplifier, virtual surround technology and powered subwoofer–fits into a super-slim cabinet engineered to accommodate the heft of virtually any flat-panel TV.

“As the prices of flat-panel TV’s have come down, more and more people are buying them, however fewer and fewer mount them on walls,” explained ZVOX founder Tom Hannaher. “The Z-Base 550 has been designed specifically to address this trend in the marketplace—our extensive research indicates that the Z-Base 550 will accommodate almost all of the top-selling flat-panel TV’s between 32" and 47" in diagonal measurement,” Hannaher stated.

A large number of flat-panel TV models available today incorporate some high-gloss black finish in their designs. The Z-Base 550 seeks to complement that look, utilizing beautiful hand-lacquered high-gloss black end panels. The top of the Z-Base 550 is finished in rugged, scratch-resistant black vinyl that is less likely to be marred by objects such as the TV placed on its surface.

Set-up of the Z-Base 550 requires very few steps: Simply place the unit on a table, shelf or cabinet. Place your stand-mounted flat-panel TV on top of it. Plug in AC power, one connecting cord to the TV and you’re done! Sit back and enjoy big, realistic sound including thunderous bass from the built-in powered subwoofer. The Z-Base 550 uses the ZVOX PhaseCue™ virtual surround system to create wide, three-dimensional sound, as if you are listening to speakers eight feet apart from each other, with movie sound effects that literally surround you. You get a room full of sound without a roomful of speakers and wires! The ZVOX Z-Base 550 has an MSRP of $499.99 and will be shipping Nov. 1st, 2008.
