Product Description

Product Description

Stylish compact Zune sound system complete with docking station for playing music videos and powering or charging Zune. Compatible with Microsoft Zune. Also capable of connecting to TV DVD and game consoles. Ships with 3 acoustic skins (black white and pink). Includes remote.

Amazon.com Product Description

Amazon.com Product Description Timed to coincide with the release of Microsoft's Zune media player, the Octavio 1 speaker system fills your home or office with pure, powerful music and movie sound. The Octavio's central feature is the built-in Zune cradle along the top, which both charges the media player and sends its audio and video signals to the amplifier for audible playback. The Octavio 1's video output, meanwhile, connects directly to a TV, so you can enjoy your Zune photos and videos on the big screen without running additional cables across the floor. And when you're not listening to or watching your Zune, you can connect the Octavio 1 to a DVD player, video game console, or other video source. In short, the Octavio 1 serves as an integrated, high-end entertainment system that makes everything from music to movies to games sound rich and robust.



The Octavio's built-in cradle holds and charges the Zune media player.
Audio-wise, the Octavio 1 sports 100 real watts of amplification, along with a large 8- inch bass driver, two 5.25-inch-long linear travel woofers with high-damping synthetic rubber roll surrounds, and two fluid-damped fabric dome tweeters. The woofers and tweeters also boast powerful magnetic motors and high-power voice coils, contributing to the elegant, crisp highs and powerful lows. And thanks to the electronic response equalization, listeners will enjoy a naturally accurate sound response from just under 40 Hz all the way up to 20 kHz. Other construction details include a first-grade medium- density fiberboard enclosure and a beautiful leather-style finish that damps unwanted cabinet resonance.


The Octavio owes its powerful sound to an 8-inch bass driver, two 5.25-inch linear travel woofers, and two fluid-damped fabric dome tweeters.

Controlling the Octavio 1 is also simple, with straightforward one-button operation. The button lets you switch elegantly between all your audio and video sources or adjust the volume in a snap (a remote control is also included). And just like the Zune itself--which initially comes in black, brown, and white--the Octavio 1 isn't restricted to one color only, with three patented acoustic skins providing a variety of looks. The powerful leather-style skin adds a touch of sleek sophistication to your decor, while the colorful skin will turn heads. VAF also included a seamless white skin that's perfect for sparse, modern designs.



Three patented acoustic skins provide a variety of looks for different decor schemes.
The Octavio 1 measures 23.6 by 10.2 by 4.3 inches (W x H x D) and weighs 23 pounds.

Verified Purchase
I really wanted this project to work for me. It had all the major features I was looking for (especially the line out for hooking to other systems). The sound was great, but after two weeks it shorted or otherwise stopped working (no sound, just clicks). I returned for an exchange with Amazon (which was easier than most store returns) and received the second one pretty quickly. However, that one arrived with a broken volume control. The volume control worked for the first few minutes, but then I suspect as the unit warmed up, it began to set the volume at random levels (high then low, then high again) as the knob was turned. The remote control volume still worked fine.

I figured that two tries were enough, especially given the price. Both of my units were in the first 500 shipped (based on serial number), so it might have been an early production problem, or maybe I just didn't have great luck.

I purchased this unit when the Zune 2 came out. I wanted to have a high quality speaker system for my home office and it seemed to foot the bill. It primarily bought the unit for the Zune dock integration on a nice unit, and I am very disappointed that it will not work with my Zune.

Pros: The unit is well made, and looks very nice. It has good sound, and is in a decent sized package for a side table or bookshelf. Overall I am happy with the sound.

Cons: The unit is not compatible with the Zune 2. I had to purchase a separate dock from Microsoft and plug it into the back to have dock functionality. So expect to pay an extra $100 if you want a dock on the unit. There is a Microsoft bulletin that states that the unit needs a firmware upgrade and a dock replacement and that it will work with the Zune 2, but I have been unable to find a way to get this upgrade.

I have attempted to contact VAF 6 times over the last few months to inquire about the upgrade. I have tried the support section of the website twice - and have not received a reply of any kind. Additionally I dug up phone numbers for the company on their website and on a forum, and neither one of them will connect.

If I were able to do it again I would buy a different system as the customer service is terrible and the unit does not function as I had hoped.

I am a pro music producer. For years, I have been frustrated. Why?
First I get something to sound great in the studio. Then I take it home and it sounds completely different. Then I take my track out to the car. It sounds different again. And NEVER EVER has anything sounded as wonderful as in the recording studio. Until now, that is.

I absolutely LOVE my Octavio! EVERYTHING sounds great on it; true and real and wonderful. Every track is just the way we put it together. I am astonished!!!

I also like the way it looks; neat and elegant, it makes sense to my eyes. No big, clunky speakers take over my home studio. No tiny little boxes look funny hung way up high. I love the black leather look. The grill covers are nice but I prefer it "au natural".

Being female, I do care about these things, I must admit. To me, size does matter. And the Octavio is a perfect size. But more importantly, the sound is awesome. I'm a very happy pro.

I bought this as a surprise gift for my wife. I had it all set up in her office when I got the phone call from her. She told me that this was the worst gift that she ever received. She said it was hideous and she wanted to know where I intended on putting it. I asked her if she tried it yet and she said "no". I replied, "turn it on and try it out". A few minutes later I received a call from her and she was elated. She could not believe the sound quality nor the amplification of the music. She said that she went outside of the house and could feel the bass by the pool! This is truly and unbelievable product for anyone serious about listening to music. Both my wife and I would highly recommend it.

The Octavio unit rocks! Incredible sound out of a relatively small unit. I played this unit at a party and noone knew that the music was not coming from my home entertainment system - this thing has serious volume!! Also, It has three colored covers to choose from but the raw leather speaker look is my favorite (No cover).

I took advantgae of the special on the Octavio speaker and the Zune bundle. I was somewhat amazed at the size of the speaker when I received it. But it actually fit nice with my other electronics in my home. I was pleasently suprised with the ease to hook up my new Zune player and my TV and DVD to this speaker. It has been truly one of my better experinces with buying electronics. I don't understand all of this electronic gagets very well, but I did this on my own and I'm so pleased with the performance of this package. The speaker fills my room with some great sound. I have had friends over and they are so impressed they are looking at buying the same package. This is truly a great deal and a great sounding system.

Thanks Amazon!
