Great Sound

The most important feature for any home theater system is high quality sound. The 580 uses a new amplifier design with extremely accurate frequency response and a warm, natural sound with surprisingly powerful bass. It features dual 6.5" powered subwoofers in a spacious cabinet (equal in interior volume to a 14" x 14" x 14" subwoofer box). The result is accurate, window-rattling bass down to 34Hz. No other all-in-one home theater system even comes close.

PhaseCue Virtual Surround Sound

The 580 uses ZVOX's proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround system to give you rich, three-dimensional sound with movies or music. With music, PhaseCue creates a very wide soundstage--it literally sounds like you are listening to speakers eight feet apart from each other. When listening to a good movie, the soundtrack will envelop you, putting you in the middle of the action.

PhaseCue uses exclusive technology "fools the ear" into believing that sound is coming from a variety of sources throughout the room. The benefits of PhaseCue 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 to literally surround the listener. While no virtual surround system will give you the exact surround effects of a good 5.1 system, the ZVOX 580 does a remarkable job.

Green Design

The 580 uses a highly-efficient Class D digital amplifier. Even playing at quite loud volumes, it usually uses less than 10 watts of total power. And standby power usage tends to hover around 0.1 watts, making it one of the "greenest" audio systems ever made. The 580 is Energy Star qualified.

Setting A New Standard For Vocal Clarity

ZVOX systems are known for their remarkable vocal clarity--even during sports broadcasts where crowd noise drowns out the announcers, or movies where surround sound effect make voices hard to hear. the Dialog Emphasis (DE) feature mimics the functions of a hearing aid for incredibly clarity. No other speaker system provides such an easy-to-use and effective method for improving the intelligibility of television dialog.

Uses Your Remote Control

Our SoundBase systems can be programmed to respond to your remote control. The illuminated display walks you through a less-than-a-minute programming cycle. Then your TV remote...or cable box remote...or satellite receiver remote...or ANY remote...can control volume, mute, power and input functions of the ZVOX system.

Taming Loud Commercials

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 new Output Leveling (OL) feature on the ZVOX 580. 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.

Disappearing Display

The 580 features a four-digit display located behind the speaker grille that shows the current setting for volume, bass, treble and PhaseCue (virtual surround)--and also 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 disappears completely.

Connect Your iPod and Other Devices

The 580 has two analog audio inputs, one optical digital input, and one coaxial digital input, plus a front-panel 3.5mm analog stereo input for convenient connection of your iPod or other portable audio device. Any specific input can be selected using either the remote control or the slim-line module below the speaker grille.

Wood (MDF) Cabinet With Hand-Lacquered Side Panels

The 580 features a hand-built cabinet of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) with beautiful hand-lacquered high-gloss end panels. Its low-profile design blends perfectly with flat-panel TVs. Most people don't even notice the ZVOX 580 until they hear it.

What's in the Box?

ZVOX Z-base 580, 1 stereo RCA to stereo RCA connecting cable, multifunction remote control with programming instruction sheet, power cord, one-sheet safety instructions, operations manual, Quick Start guide.

  1. If a TV is connected to an off-air HDTV antenna or to an HD cable TV feed without a cable box, a sound system connected to the TV's digital audio output may require a Dolby Labs license. The analog audio output of a TV will always work, if present.
  2. These are guidelines. Confirm your TV base fits within the width and depth of the top of the ZVOX Audio system. It is not necessary to place a TV on top of a ZVOX Audio system. A ZVOX Audio system sounds excellent placed near a TV. Allow for a 1.75" space behind the ZVOX system for rear panel connections.
