About.com Puts Four ZVOX Systems On List of Top Sound Bars

Posted by Tom Hannaher , Monday, December 6, 2010

Robert Silva, the Home Theater editor for the terrific web site About.com, recently released the list of his recommended sound bar systems -- and it included four ZVOX systems: the 575, 550, 425 and 325. And our top-of-the-line 575 system was the top-ranked amplified sound bar under $1,000. 
Robert also included the 575 on his list of recommended "home theater gift ideas for mom." Hard to argue with that. We have yet to meet a mom that didn't love a sound system with no speaker wires.

Tiny Digital-to-Analog Converter Works Great, Is Cheap As Chips

Posted by Tom Hannaher , Thursday, December 2, 2010

About four years ago some TV makers started removing a great feature -- simple analog audio output jacks. They replaced these jacks with digital outputs -- which only work with digital inputs. So a number of our early ZVOX models, which don't have digital inputs, would not work with these digital-out-only TVs. There have been little digital-to-analog converters around for a while now -- little boxes that convert the TV's digital signal into something any sound system can work with. But a new one from Monoprice is really cool because it works very well and it's just incredibly cheap. $25.60. We bought one and have been testing it for a week or so with no problems. Great little product.
