Sound Bars and Under TV Audio Systems are a very common TV-audio enhancement option available these days, but they had to start somewhere, and one of pioneers in both the sound bar and under-TV audio system concept is ZVOX Audio.

Through the years they have produced, and continue to produce in the face of growing competition, sound bar and under-TV audio systems that both perform well and are popular amongst consumers. As examples, read my reviews of past ZVOX Audio products including ZVOX 325, 550, 575, and 580 under-TV audio systems, and the ZVOX 425 Sound Bar

Now, for 2015, ZVOX has announced a new "Value Line" which is made up of two under-TV audio systems (SoundBases), the 350 and 450, that are designed to provide good performance, but with more reasonable price tags.

To start with, both the 350 and 450 provide the following core features:

- Full Range speakers for the upper bass, mid, and high frequencies, combined with a built-in subwoofer for low bass response.

- MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) cabinet construction.

- Built-in Wireless Bluetooth, which provides the ability to stream audio content directly from most smartphones, tablets, or other compatible portable devices.

Physical Connectivity:: 1 Digital Optical, 1 Digital Coaxial, and two Analog Stereo inputs.

- PhaseCue Virtual Surround processing.

- ZVOX AccuVoice (also referred to as Dialog Emphasis) technology improves vocal presence and clarity.

- Output Leveling (OL) smooths out unwanted volume spikes, such as from commercials - similar to what is often referred to as Dynamic Range Compression.

- Remote Controllable through most TV/Cable/Satellite and Universal Remote Controls (remote control also provided with the units).
