Is this in competition with ZVOX? Why should I, as a general consumer rather than an outlaw enthusiast, purchase this product? ZVOX has reported lower bass range and is cheaper, or am I missing something in the specs comparison?

ZVOX has no digital audio input just stereo analog and the review I read kinda skirted around whether it could process anything. It would seem that it just becomes an extension of your TV speakers. You may accomplish the same thing with a set of computer speakers with a sub for $50.

45 hz from a 4 inch subwoofer is a stretch. I would be surprised if it performed that well with actual measurements instead of just claims. The review I read on the OSB-1 actually measured it to 47 HZ.

Specs are a good starting point for your evaluation of which product to purchase but the acid test is how the unit sounds in your setup. Try them both and if there's not enough improvment in sound quality to justify the additional cost go with the less expensive equipment. I noticed ZVOX has a 30 day home trial, same as Outlaw, although you may be out the shipping cost of the unit you don't keep.

If you do the evaluation please post your impressions. I'd be interested in hearing them.

ZVOX 220 has coax and optical digital inputs.

HI Gang: Just wondering if anyone has bought and received their sound-bar and are going to offer up any suggestions. What I have read about the H-Pas technology has been very good-plus.

Remind me of what the attraction is supposed to be? I thought us outlaws were fledgling audiophile types. How are ya going to get those fancy BluRay soundtracks to work without an HDMI input?

Best,
