SoundBase 570: The ZVOX SoundBase 570 speaker system is designed
to sit beneath your flat-panel TV so you can have surround sound without adding
a lot of clutter to your room. It requires no additional speakers, subwoofer, or
speaker wires. The SoundBase 570 reproduces TV shows, music, and movie
soundtracks with lifelike accuracy, including crystal-clear vocals and big bass.
The ZVOX SoundBase 570 is the perfect solution for people who want great sound
from their flat-panel TV without the clutter and complexity of a conventional
home theater system.
Note: You can place the ZVOX SoundBase 570 directly
beneath most 37"-55" flat-panel TVs weighing up to 110 lbs with a pedestal base
which does not exceed 26.625" in width or 13" in depth. The SoundBase
570 has a height of only 3.5". You can also place the SoundBase 570 on a shelf under most table-top or wall-mount flat-panel
Advanced Speaker Design: The ZVOX SoundBase 570 speaker system
incorporates high-quality speakers, built-in sub, a highly efficient amplifier,
and digital signal processing for high-fidelity sound. And its all packed inside one slim,
- 5 Speaker Array w/ Built-in Subwoofer: The ZVOX SoundBase 570
speaker system includes five front-firing 2" full-range drivers and one
down-firing 5.25" subwoofer. The
2" full-range drivers use a long-throw design to create a remarkably wide
range, accurate sound. The 5.25" subwoofer uses a high-mass long-throw
design and is coupled with a rear-firing port for deep, accurate bass.
- Class D Amplifier w/ DSP: The ZVOX SoundBase 570
employs a highly efficient 65W Class D amplifier that includes digital
signal processing (DSP) for superb frequency response. The result is a very
warm, natural, smooth, and accurate sound.
- MDF Cabinet: The 570 features a hand-built cabinet of heavy MDF. The
speaker cabinet is robustly constructed using fully-braced MDF (medium density
fiberboard), not molded plastic that is found any many lesser expensive soundbar
speaker systems. MDF is the preferred construction material for high-performance
PhaseCue II Virtual Surround Sound: The SoundBase 570 uses
ZVOX's proprietary PhaseCue II virtual surround processing to give you rich,
three-dimensional sound with movies or music. PhaseCue II, as its name implies,
manipulates the phase of the separate channels to "fool the ear" into believing
that sound is coming from a variety of sources throughout the room. The benefits
of PhaseCue II 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, virtually
surrounding the listener.
- 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.
- Movies: When listening to a good movie, the soundtrack
will envelop you - putting you in the middle of the action.
- Levels: You can adjust the level of PhaseCue II virtual
surround processing effect. You can select from Surround One (low effect),
Surround Two (moderate effect), Surround Three (strong effect).
Note: AccuVoice cannot be used in conjunction with a
PhaseCure Virtual Surround Sound mode.
Audio Enhancement: The ZVOX SoundBase 570 offers a variety
of audio adjustment to enhance your listening experience.
- AccuVoice: The SoundBase 570 includes the ZVOX
AccuVoice feature, which uses hearing aid technology to create
super-clear voice reproduction. When you push the "ACCU" button on the remote
control you engage a circuit that mimics the functions of a hearing aid. The
frequencies used by human voices are dynamically emphasized, while other
frequencies are minimized.
- Output Leveling: The SoundBase 570's Output Leveling feature
automatically turns down loud commercials, while boosting audio levels from DVD
and Blu-ray movies that are not loud enough. Simply press the "OL" button on the
included remote and a sophisticated 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.
- Tone Control: The SoundBase 570 has independent bass and treble
controls. Each has a range from -4 to 4, and can be adjusted using the
remote control only.
Note: AccuVoice and Output Leveling can be activated simultaneously.
Wired & Wireless Connectivity: The ZVOX SoundBase 570 offers
wired and wireless connectivity; including digital and analog inputs, Bluetooth
audio streaming, and a subwoofer output.
- Digital & Analog Inputs: The SoundBase 570 has two optical (toslink)
digital inputs and one coaxial digital input, plus two analog stereo RCA audio
inputs on the rear-panel. Plus, there is a front panel analog stereo minijack
(3.5mm) input for convenient connection of a portable audio device. The three
digital inputs will support both 2ch PCM and Dolby Digital 5.1ch audio. The
analog inputs only support 2ch PCM.
- Bluetooth Wireless Audio + aptX: The ZVOX
SoundBase 570 supports Bluetooth A2DP which allows you to wirelessly stream
audio from your Bluetooth-enabled Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad, Android
smartphone/tablet, Blackberry, laptop/computer, etc.. You'll be able to
stream stored music or music apps from your Bluetooth-enabled device to the
SoundBase speaker system. The SoundBase 570 even employs AptX audio coding
technology for lossless, CD-quality streaming with compatible
AptX-compatible phones (like some Androids OS 4.0+). You will continue to
use your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device for music navigation and to view
- Subwoofer Output: An optional powered subwoofer can be
connected using the full-range mono-RCA Sub Output on the back panel for
even bigger bass. There is no low-pass crossover built-in to the sub out, so
you will need to set the low-pass crossover of your powered subwoofer
Hidden Display: The ZVOX SoundBase 570 features a four-digit display
located behind the speaker grille that shows the current setting for volume,
bass, treble, and PhaseCue II (virtual surround); plus 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
Remote Control: The ZVOX SoundBase 570 comes with an IR
remote control for wireless operation of the system. The included wireless
remote has controls for power, input select, mute, volume, PhaseCue II effect
level, bass & treble level, and DE/OL functions. The SoundBase 570 can also be
programmed to respond to your TV or satellite/cable remote control. Once
programmed, you can control volume, mute, input, and power with your TV or
Note: Many newer TVs are coming with RF remotes and don't
offer IR functionality. In this case, you would not be able to program the
soundbar and TV remote to work together.
Auto On/Off: The ZVOX SoundBase 570 will automatically turn on if it
senses a volume adjustment or power command from your programmed remote control
or the included remote control. The SoundBase 570 will also automatically turn
off if the selected input is silent for longer than approximately 30 minutes.
