Now you can get room-filling home?theatre?sound – without a room full of speakers and wires. The?ZVOX?Z-Base 580 is a complete surround sound system – including dual powered?subwoofers?- all in one cabinet. Just place the 580 on a piece of furniture, place your flat-panel TV on top of the?ZVOX?system, connect one wire…you’ve installed a high-performance home?theatre?system in under 10 minutes. The sound quality?of the?ZVOX?580 is comparable to that of much more expensive multi-speaker systems.

“For a single-box system, this thing really packs a wallop!”?Home Theater Magazine

It includes five high-performance speakers and dual 6.5″ powered subwoofers for window-rattling bass. The ZVOX PhaseCue II virtual surround sound system creates a three-dimensional sound without the need for multiple speakers throughout the room. Movies come to life with vibrant, realistic, high-impact sound. Music sounds accurate and natural. And vocals on TV shows come through with incredible clarity. The 580 uses a highly advanced processor to digitally tailor the sound for excellent frequency response. The result is a very smooth, very accurate sound. This Z-Base system doesn’t sound like a “soundbar,” it sounds like an audiophile quality speaker system.

Great Sound.?The most important feature for any home theatre system is high-quality sound. The 580 uses a new amplifier design with extremely accurate frequency response and a warm, natural sound and surprisingly powerful bass. It uses dual 6.5″ powered subwoofers in a spacious cabinet (equal in interior volume to a 14″ x 14″ x 14″ subwoofer box). The result is accurate, window-rattling bass down to 34Hz. No other all-in-one home theatre system even comes close.

PhaseCue? II Virtual Surround Sound.?The 580 uses?ZVOX’s?proprietary?PhaseCue?II virtual surround processing to give you rich, three-dimensional sound with movies or music. With music,?PhaseCue?II 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. While no virtual surround system – including ours – will give you the surround effects of a good 5.1 system, the?ZVOX?580 does a remarkable job.?Sound & Vision?magazine calls our?PhaseCue?system “remarkably ingenious.”

Green Design.?The 580 uses a highly-efficient Class D digital amplifier. Even playing at quite loud volumes, it usually uses less than 10 watts of total power. And standby power usage tends to hover around 0.1 watts – making it one of the “greenest” audio systems ever made.

Setting A New Standard For Vocal Clarity.?ZVOX?systems are known for their remarkable vocal clarity. The 580 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. The frequencies used by human voices are emphasized and compressed, while other frequencies are minimized. We don’t know of any other speaker system that provides such an easy-to-use and effective method for improving the intelligibility of television dialog.

Uses?Your?Remote Control.?The new Z-Base system 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?Levelling?(OL) feature on the?ZVOX?580. Just push the OL button and a sophisticated compression processor takes over, making soft sounds louder and loud sounds softer, so there are fewer jarring moments when switching channels or when commercials come on. This system also helps by boosting the audio levels from a DVD or Blu Ray player that is not loud enough.

Disappearing Display.?The 580 features a four-digit display located behind the speaker grille that shows the current setting for volume, bass, treble and?PhaseCue?II? (virtual surround) – and also shows when you have engaged the Mute, Output?Levelling?(OL) or Dialog Emphasis (DE) features. A few seconds after you stop using your remote (or front panel) controls, the display disappears completely.

Multiple Inputs, front-panel connection for iPod? and other devices, Dolby Digital decoder.?The 580 has two analogue audio inputs, one optical (Toslink) digital input, one coaxial digital input – plus a front panel 3.5mm analogue stereo input for convenient connection of your iPod or another portable audio device. Any specific input can be selected using either the remote control or the slim-line module below the speaker grille. The two digital inputs work with a built-in Dolby Digital decoder, which can improve virtual surround performance and allow for simplified connections to a wide variety of TVs, cable boxes and disc players.

Wood (MDF) Cabinet With Hand-Lacquered Side Panels.?The 580 features a hand-built cabinet of MDF (medium-density fibreboard) with beautiful hand-lacquered high-gloss end panels. Its low-profile design blends perfectly with flat-panel TVs. Most people don’t even notice the ZVOX 580…until they hear it.
