Original cost of the ZVOX 575HSD Incredibase Low-Profile High-Performance Single-Cabinet Surround Sound System was $750. This unit could use a two week break in period as this system was seldom used. The sound bar is in mint condition with no cosmetic or electronic problems whatsoever. It is built like a tank and uses quality components and was one of ZVOX's flagship components. Will sell this unit complete with power cable and remote for $315.

A Review(Excerpts)


The low-bass performance was remarkable given the unit's size and price. It's surprisingly deep, well controlled, harmonically complex, and free of mid bass boom. I'd guess that it went cleanly down to the upper 30-hertz region (see HT Labs Measures). Keep in mind that placement has a big effect on the final lower octave balance, so your results may vary. In my case, I had previously used a smaller ZVOX unit in that location and had gotten excellent mid bass. Unfortunately, you don't usually have a choice when it comes to sound bar placement. The speaker goes below wherever the HDTV goes.

The Z-Base 575 sounded very well organized rhythmically and harmonically, and the system could play quite loud without dynamic compression in my fairly large bedroom. I made all of these observations with PhaseCue set very low since it has a profound effect on tonal balance as well as on spatiality.

Surround Sound Movies

I ran a Panasonic Blu-ray player's analog outputs into the Z-Base 575 and watched some familiar scenes from DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. I listened for the general sound quality and PhaseCue's ability to produce sonic three-dimensionality.

Set correctly, and assuming you're sitting centered in front of the sound bar, you can obtain a soundstage that almost magically spreads way beyond the boundaries of the enclosure. You can also get some genuinely believable surround sound response with no appreciable loss of intelligibility or image solidity.

Conclusion

Broken in, and set up tastefully, ZVOX's Z-Base 575 offers a great deal of technology and performance in a single compact box at a ridiculously low price. It goes incredibly low, produces surprisingly wide dynamic swings, offers excellent dialogue clarity (as long as you don't overdo PhaseCue), and can create a satisfying three dimensional space. It's easy to recommend for a secondary bedroom system or for enthusiasts who dream big but budget small.
