I great speaker system for your flat screen

jabridger, Ebay

  • Summary: This is an older model of Zvox's 555 current model. The main difference is the inputs. The 550 has only an RCA connection so if your set up uses an optical output, you will need an adapter. They cost about $30. No big deal. The unit works great!

Great speaker system

  • Summary: It has been a year since I purchased this ZVox speaker system. Apparently it has been replaced by newer models but I cannot say enough good things about this model and I'm sure it applies to all ZVox models. One advantage is the TV sits on top of it, it does not sit in front of the TV.

Zvox 550

  • Summary: Very happy with my Zvox 550. Easy to set up-only initial problem was my LG tv had no analogue rca output, like most new tv's these days. Started out by routing audio from TIVO which had RCA analogue output, but this was a bit fiddly so purchaced Toslink optical digital to RCA converter to connect...

After Sony

Jack Taylor, Amazon
24 September 2011
  • Summary: As another victim of what seems to be the universally bad sound of flat screen TVs, I gave in and bought a Sony HT-CT150 3D Sound Bar System. For me it was an overcomplicated mess that, even after tech assistance, made little difference in sound quality.

Sounds Good

C. Bryan, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm not going reinvent the wheel with my review. I agree with most reviews. From opening the box to putting in under my TV and hooking it up, it literally took 10 minutes. I sold a full Reference Tower speaker system with a Denon receiver, so i knew that this wasn't going to even come close.

quick, easy and surprisingly good quality

  • Summary: This was stupid easy to setup: one wire for power, one wire for sound from the TV. It even has an option to power off if there is no audio signal from the TV after a few minutes. Given the relatively low price and fact it's not a "true" surround system, the audio quality is quite amazing.

Really good for what it does...know its limitations

  • Summary: Heard about ZVOX on CNET. Never heard of them before that, and I'm somewhat of an audiophile (I have NHT speakers for my stereo, although I am holding out for a Bowers & Wilkins upgrade).

  • Summary: Zvox..simple, sounds very detailed and clean. Samsung R580 notebook via HDMI 1.4 to Samsung Ln46c650 to my Zvox 550.The TV sounds dam good as is, but its well worth it to use the Zvox 550, music not bad at all, but movies is were it shines.

Everything I expected

Don R. Womack, Amazon
12 March 2011
  • Summary: Delivery as estimated, very simple setup and product performed very satisfactorily. I would prefer some system of lights to indicate the sound settings as they are adjusted. Overall, an excellent system.
