$200 ZVOX Single-Box Home Theater Reports Enhanced Clarity Among Hearing Impaired  Print E-mail

The ZVOX Audio 315 single-box home-theater speaker, has found favor among hearing-impaired individuals who are able to enjoy watching television again because they can hear words and sound with enhanced clarity and definition.

ZVOX has received letters from customers about the surprising clarity of its 315 system, describing how hearing-impaired family members can understand the dialog on TV shows—in some cases, without the benefit of hearing aids. These listeners report a common thread regarding the ZVOX 315’s unique, single-source music and movie surround-sound reproduction.

The ZVOX 315 is a unique, single-component audio system that features three speakers, a subwoofer, built-in amplifiers, electronics, and patent-pending PhaseCue signal processing which yield spacious and natural surround-sound presentation from single compact unit, according to ZVOX. Typically placed on top of, or beneath a TV or computer monitor the ZVOX 315 can also be used with a DVD or portable music player, cable or satellite TV set-top boxes, or virtually any other audio source.

There are three design features found in the ZVOX 315 that are key to the system’s enhanced definition and intelligibility. First, PhaseCue processing creates a wide soundfield by incorporating out-of-phase information from recordings or broadcasts, for a live sound whose extended high frequencies enhance audio clarity. Next, the centered monaural dialog-channel speaker tends to anchor the sound, delivering intelligible voices and clear audio. Finally, the ZVOX 315’s speakers and amplifiers yield accurate, wide-range reproduction free of the substantial distortion common to many TV speakers for sound that is easier for listeners to hear and enjoy.

The ZVOX 315 is a loudspeaker system that produces quality surround sound from a cabinet 17 inches wide and 14 deep. Its simple design requires only one wire connection, and no additional controls or remotes.

Availability: The ZVOX 315 is available factory direct or can be found in selected Best Buy and specialty retailers nationwide. For more information, visit ZVOX at http://www.zvoxaudio.com or call toll-free, 1-866-FOR-ZVOX (1-866-367-9869).

Suggested Retail Price: $199.99 Matte Black or Silver finish
