ZVOX Z-Base 550 Surround Speaker System

5 January 2009
  • Conclusion: For the right situation, this may be an effective solution to achieve much higher sound quality than typical built in display speakers. While the unit generated an impressive sound stage, it never produced surround effects that made me think I was sitting in my 7.1 theater (I don't think that is what ZVOX is shooting for with this product). Nor was it capable of producing room-shaking volume and bass.
  • Pros: Surprisingly wide sound stage, Virtual surround solution for rooms where a 5.1 system is not possible, Accurate, detailed and clear sound
  • Cons: Limited to 2 inputs, Limits size of display if used as a base, Lacks punch, PhaseCue effect can cause a hollow effect when listening to music, PhaseCue needs frequent adjusting, Dual analogue inputs are always active
