ZVOX Z-Base 550 speaker

ZVOX on Wednesday announced the release of its Z-Base 550 home theater surround sound system, with all amplifiers, speakers and subwoofer as well as all sound processing hardware incorporated into one cabinet that doubles as the base for free-standing flat-panel TVs. The three-inch tall box contains five 2-inch speakers and a 5.25-inch subwoofer that reportedly deliver virtual surround sound thanks to ZVOX' PhaseCue software. Total system power is fixed at 60W, and users get an auto on and off circuit. The sole connection is a pair of analog stereo inputs.

ZVOX stresses the unit's easy setup as a selling feature, with connecting the power cable for the Energy Star-qualified power adapter as the only requirement as there is no need to run and hide speaker wires around the room as in traditional surround sound systems. The top of the Z-Base 550 is finished in a scratch-resistant black vinyl for durability and the cabinet will support TVs up to 90lbs, or most 47-inch sets.

The ZVOX Z-Base 550 is currently available, priced at nearly $500.
