ZVOX AccuVoice AV157 – True Hi-Fi TV Loudspeaker w/ Hearing Aid Technology

Whenever you’re watching movies or series on your TV screen, you might experience scenes during which you can’t properly hear the voices from different characters and understand what’s being said. This is essentially because flat screen TVs tend to have weak built-in speakers, which, due to their lower-end audio capabilities, can end up reproducing faint, muffled, and unclear audio, especially during scenes with background soundtracks that are louder than the actual dialogue. When experiencing such poor audio quality during dialogue, you might feel the need to rewind those scenes or have subtitles On just so you can hear or at least understand what’s being said. If that’s your case, then one of your best options is to get a TV loudspeaker. These devices are particularly designed to deliver a significantly better audio quality than that offered by the default speakers integrated within most flat screen TVs. Not only do TV loudspeakers support immersive audio formats like Dolby Digital, which allows them to deliver a more realistic sound that helps to create a more immersive listening experience, but some models also feature voice enhancing technologies which make dialogue clearer and easier to understand by raising specific sound frequencies from voices over other audio playing, even at low volumes. So, if you’re looking for a TV loudspeaker that can deliver a well-balanced audio and effectively make dialogue easier to hear and understand, then the ZVOX AccuVoice AV157 is an outstanding choice for you to go with.

The ZVOX Accuvoice AV157 is a true high-fidelity TV loudspeaker powered by three 2″ x 3” high-output full-range speakers with neodymium magnets and a 24 Watt Class D digital amplifier that make it capable of delivering an amazing Hi-Fi sound for a truly immersive listening experience. It leverages ZVOX’s proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround processing technology, which gives you a rich and room-filling three-dimensional sound for music, movies, and TV shows, while also boasting support for Dolby Digital decoding, allowing it to deliver a high-quality digital surround sound for movies and other video content. It also features 12 levels of voice boost that allow to tailor the sound to your hearing needs, for which it utilizes ZVOX’s patented AccuVoice hearing aid technology, which offers you 6 levels of voice boost that effectively separate the voices in your media from background noises and then enhance them so you hear them clearly, along with ZVOX’s SuperVoice dialogue-boosting technology, which offers you 6 stages of sound reduction for non-vocal background sounds to make dialogues even clearer. The AV157 also boasts an Output Leveling (OL) function that allows it to automatically control the current volume level to help prevent wide changes in volume by making faint sounds louder and loud sounds softer, which is great for times when you’re switching channels and also during commercials. It also integrates a four-digit alphanumeric display that shows the current setting for its volume, bass, treble and PhaseCue virtual surround sound, plus multiple connection ports, including an Optical Digital Toslink input, a 3.5mm Analog input, and a headphone/subwoofer output.

By using this true high-fidelity TV loudspeaker, you can get an incredibly clear voice reproduction for any sort of media, not only for when you want to listen to music, podcasts and audiobooks, but especially for watching videos, documentaries, TV shows and movies. With it, you can have a truly immersive listening experience for all of your listening needs.
