ZVOX ZBASE 555 Surround Soundbar Sweepstakes

Register to win a ZVOX ZBASE 555 Surround Soundbar (MSRP $399.99) we are giving away.

According to ZVOX:

Unlike conventional home theater systems or "sound bars," the ZVOX 555 creates room-filling three-dimensional sound from a single low-profile cabinet. No external speakers or subwoofers. No speaker wires. Just place your flat panel TV on top of the ZVOX system, plug in one connecting wire -- and you're ready to go.

The 555 uses 5 full-range speakers, a 5.25" powered subwoofer, a 70-watt amplifier and ZVOX's proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround technology. It includes revolutionary a Dialog Emphasis circuit to create super-clear voice reproduction. And you can program the 555 to work with virtually any remote control.

Would make a great gift for my grandpa who has trouble hearing dialogue from his tv speakers

jraya's picture

I've been in need of the ZBASE 555 for quite some time now, but I just can't afford it due to the struggling economy. It would certainly brighten my day and be put to use immediately if I were chosen!

cgeeplatonique's picture

I've always been wanting to experiment with soundbars, but after hearing from acquaintances who've tried Zvox products & have been impressed, it makes perfect sense to jump into the bandwagon. This little beast should look good under my 26" LCD TV.

katanadude's picture

Could use it!

hiptech's picture

I seem to recollect a conversation between Scott and Leo where Leo said to avoid soundbars as they were pretty useless, was I wrong?

johnmotex's picture

Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!

von Krag's picture

I could see this as a solution to good sound on my iMac.

lazyrivr's picture

My parents' TV has pretty poor sound, and I think they'd enjoy better sound if they actually heard it!

Toscalovich's picture

Can't tell you how long I've looked to enable my parents to enjoy clear, full sound with a prospective HDTV we want to get. The TV I'm thinking about has a clearance of about 1.5 inches. So that means I have to get a 2-inch-high soundbar (along with its commensurate tinny sound) or get a riser to put the TV on so the soundbar won't obscure the IR receptor on the bottom bezel.

ZVOX is to be lauded for finding a niche and filling it. Although I'd love to see what they could do with some tweeters added to their complement of bigger drivers, I've read the clarity of this speaker is very high.

Good job, ZVOX, and thank you for mitigating the incidence of SAF encountered before installing the TV and its soundbar.

derekht's picture

I've never had a soundbar, but I bet it would sound good.

Mister Leadfoot's picture

I would totally gift this to my dad.

mweston's picture

I would be perfect for the chest location with plasma tv on top. Plus the sound would be better than the internal tv speakers and no hassle to install ceiling speakers.

biaubill's picture

Perfect gift for someone whose like a second mother to me!! Please let me win something for once!

Rhys's picture

Getting a new TV very soon, and this would be a great addition, thanks.

At least not by chance. If I'm in control of the outcome, like a game of "Settlers of Catan" than I win.
