AccuVoice TV Speaker: The AccuVoice TV Speaker (AV200) is specifically
designed to produce room-filling sound, while rendering crystal clear dialog. It
uses three high-performance speakers, an acoustically stable aluminum cabinet,
and a 30-watt Class D digital amplifier to create warm, natural, realistic
sound. Aluminum allows ZVOX to make the speaker very small, but still
acoustically correct, because the metal is strong and has very low resonance.
Built-in Hearing-Aid Technology: This tiny TV speaker utilizes
ZVOX's proprietary (patent-pending) AccuVoice technology to solve the dialog
clarity problem with many of today's flat-panel TVs. AccuVoice mimics the
function of a hearing aid by isolating voice frequencies and lifting them out of
background sounds. ZVOX's advanced digital processor analyzes TV programs and
movie soundtracks, and when it detects voices it instantly activates computer
algorithms that bring voices forward. The frequencies used by human voices are
dynamically emphasized, while other frequencies are minimized. You'll hear crystal-clear dialogue, even
at lower volumes.
PhaseCue Virtual Surround Sound: The AccuVoice TV Speaker
(AV200) uses ZVOX's proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround processing to give you
rich, three-dimensional sound with movies or music. PhaseCue, 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.
You choose from 3 PhaseCue Virtual Surround Sound modes.
- Surround 1: Low virtual surround effect and strong
vocals for enhanced vocal clarity.
- Surround 2: Moderate virtual surround effect and
moderate vocals for most program material.
- Surround 3: Strong virtual surround effect and moderate
vocals for movies.
Note: AccuVoice cannot be used in conjunction with a PhaseCure Virtual
Surround Sound mode.
Output Leveling: 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 Output Leveling (OL). 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.
Note: AccuVoice and Output Leveling can be activated simultaneously.
Bass & Treble: The ZVOX AV200 speaker has independent bass &
treble controls. Each has a range from -4 to 4, and can be adjusted using the
remote control only.
Digital & Analog Inputs: The ZVOX AccuVoice TV Speaker has
one optical (toslink) digital input and one analog stereo minijack (3.5mm) input.
The digital input will support 2ch PCM and 5.1ch Dolby Digital.
Sub Output: The The ZVOX AV200 speaker features a minijack (3.5mm)
subwoofer output for connecting a powered subwoofer if you want more bass out of
the system. The powered sub should have a line-level input and a built-in low
Remote Control: The ZVOX AV200 comes with an IR remote
control for wireless operation of the speaker. The included wireless remote has
controls for power, input select, mute, volume, surround effect level, bass &
treble, as well as AccuVoice and Output Leveling functions. The AV200 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
satellite/cable remote. There are also Power, Volume, and Input control buttons
on one end of the soundbar speaker.
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.
Hidden Display: The AccuVoice TV Speaker (AV200) features a
four-digit display located behind the speaker grille that shows the current
setting for volume, bass, treble, and PhaseCue (virtual surround); plus shows
when you have engaged the Mute, Output Leveling or AccuVoice features. A few
seconds after you stop using your remote (or side-panel) controls, the display
Mounting Options: The ZVOX AccuVoice TV Speaker measures only
17.0625" (w) x 3.0" (h) x 3.3125" (d), and can fit almost anywhere. The speaker
can be placed on a table top or wall-mounted using its integrated keyhole
