The Z-Base's design allows it to be placed under your TV's base which will help cut down on clutter, making it a good solution for smaller rooms tight on space. And don't be fooled by the Z-Base's small size, as the unit is able to provide a good, balanced soundstage that will be an improvement over any TV's built-in speaker set. One downside: the Z-Base doesn't have a lot of inputs, so you may not be able to connect all of your devices to it as easily as you can with more flexible soundbars.

The Zvox Z-Base 580 may be the easiest way to get better sound from your TV. And unlike the case with most soundbars, your TV remote can control it.

The Zvox Z-Base 580 has a nearly perfect sound-bar design and a solid feature set, but it won't please critical listeners and the smaller Z-Base 555 is a better value.

The Zvox SoundBase 555 is a great way to add sound power to your home theater, but it's not particularly flexible.

f you are a discerning audiophile the Zvox will not satisfy your ears in the quite the same way a traditional two or multi-channel setup would, but for the sake of convenience and clutter - the Zvox rocks.

For the right situation, this may be an effective solution to achieve much higher sound quality than typical built in display speakers.

The Z-base 550 is an easy-to-use system that delivers bigger sound than you would expect. If you already have a multi-channel surround sound system in your main room, the Z-base 550 is a great home theater solution for a second room.
