Zvox 550

botak44, Amazon
24 September 2011
  • 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
8 September 2011
  • 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

tha E, Amazon

  • 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

MarkInSoCal, Amazon

  • 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).

Good sound/low profile

Dieter, Amazon
8 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought the Zvox 550 as a low profile soundbar for a TV in my great room. I wanted good sound quality with a system that disappeared acoustically and visually. On both counts, the Zvox works well. It has a natural sound with a satisfying bass punch when watching action movies.

niche product, but excellent for it's price

isidro garcia, Amazon

  • Summary: Others have given detailed reviews like dsrussell and chris boylan and I generally agree with their assessment. It does give a lot of depth to the sound stage and it will make musical elements in a movie come alive. What it does not do is give you the rear surround element and huge bass.

ZVOX 550 Low-Profile Surround Sound System

M. D. Boyette, Amazon
7 February 2011
  • Summary: I needed a speaker system for my flat screen TV. I looked at a number of systems. They ran from a few hundred dollars to many thousands. What I liked about this system was its compact design. It was easy to install and gives a good sound quality.

Good alternative to a multi-speaker system

W. M. Melmoth, Amazon
25 January 2011
  • Summary: I could not find a way to cleanly run wires for a multi-speaker system in my den, also my wife did not want the look of speakers all over. I had tried several different "soundbar" systems, including Sony and wireless Vizio units.
