World's Smallest Home Theater System
Surround Sound Without Multiple Speakers & Wires
No External Subwoofer - Everything's Built-In
"Loud Commercial Control" Feature
Only 3.5" high and 17" wide, the ZVOX SoundBase 220 home theater system is about the same size as a DVD player. You can place it underneath many small TVs--or place it on a shelf below your TV. Either way you can have surround sound without adding a lot of clutter to your room. It requires no external speakers, subwoofer or speaker wires. The 220 reproduces TV shows, music and movie soundtracks with lifelike accuracy, including crystal-clear vocals and strong bass. And the ZVOX PhaseCue virtual surround system delivers remarkable three-dimensional sound. The entire sound bar system, including speakers, amplifier, virtual surround technology and powered subwoofer, fits into the super-slim cabinet. With only one connecting cord and a one-page owner's manual, it is truly "plug and play." The cabinet is robustly constructed using fully-braced MDF (medium density fiberboard), not molded plastic.
The most important feature for any home theater system is high quality sound. The 220 uses three high-performance full-range speakers, a built-in powered subwoofer and a gutsy 35-watt amplifier in a wood (MDF) cabinet. The system has been carefully "voiced" by the ZVOX design team to deliver natural, realistic, room-filling sound--including strong, accurate bass response.
PhaseCue Virtual Surround Sound
With ZVOX you don't need a room full of speakers for home theater sound. The 220 uses the proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround system to give you rich, three-dimensional sound with movies or music. With music, PhaseCue creates a very wide soundstage--it literally sounds like you are listening to speakers eight feet apart from each other. When listening to a good movie, the soundtrack will envelop you, putting you in the middle of the action.
The benefits of PhaseCue vary greatly based on program material. Live music and well-recorded modern movie soundtracks will deliver rich, three-dimensional sound, pulling the sound out from the speakers and into the room to literally surround the listener. While no virtual surround system will give you the exact surround effects of a good 5.1 system, the ZVOX 220 does a remarkable job.
Setting a New Standard For Vocal Clarity
ZVOX systems are known for their remarkable vocal clarity. The 220 adds a stunning new feature: Dialog Emphasis (DE). When you push the "DE" button on the remote control you engage a circuit that mimics the functions of a hearing aid. No other speaker system provides such an easy-to-use and effective method for improving the intelligibility of television dialog.
Uses Your Remote Control
ZVOX SoundBase systems can be programmed to respond to your remote control. The illuminated display walks you through a less-than-a-minute programming cycle. Then your TV remote...or cable box remote...or satellite receiver remote...or ANY remote...can control volume, mute, power and input functions of the ZVOX system.
Taming Commercials That Are Too Loud
If you've ever been blasted out of your chair by a too-loud commercial, or by a cable channel that's twice as loud as another channel, you'll love the new Output Leveling (OL) feature on the ZVOX 220. Just push the "OL" button and a sophisticated compression system takes over, making soft sounds louder and loud sounds softer, so there are fewer jarring moments when switching channels or when commercials come on.
The 220 features a four-digit display located behind the speaker grille that shows the current setting for volume, bass, treble and PhaseCue (virtual surround)--and also shows when you have engaged the Mute, Output Leveling (OL) or Dialog Emphasis (DE) features. A few seconds after you stop using your remote (or front panel) controls, the display disappears completely.
Connect Your iPod and Other Devices
The 220 has two analog audio inputs, one optical digital input, and one coaxial digital input, plus a front-panel 3.5mm analog stereo input for convenient connection of your iPod or other portable audio device. Any specific input can be selected using either the remote control or the slim-line module below the speaker grille.
Wood (MDF) Cabinet--Not Plastic
The 220 features a hand-built cabinet of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard)--the material used in many "audiophile quality" loudspeakers. Its low-profile design blends perfectly with flat-panel TVs.
