Design

The cabinet is made of aluminum, so it is very light and rigid acoustically-wise. It has extremely thin walls (nevertheless, the construction remains durable) and it allows getting loud volume without any noise.

This model has a display (behind the grille, but you can clearly read the values). This display informs about the value for volume, virtual surround and the bass. It also informs whether you use various enhancement features. The numbers fade away completely after several seconds so nothing distracts you.

The right panel has buttons which are quite big and you can easily reach them. The left panel has a port required for the subwoofer to make the sound deeper.

It has a panel with all the ports you need – it has two optical digital input ports and stereo RCA.

This model can be placed on a table or you can wall-mount it. The dimensions of this model are 5.7x 35.5x3.3 in, and the weight is 9.8 pounds.

Features

The ZVOX SB380 specs show that it is built to assure the best audio quality possible. It uses the proprietary technology of ZVOX – AccuVoice. This technology enhances the voices and the dialogues are super clear even if the source is poor. The speakers’ placement and materials used create the perfectly embracing 3D sound. It can be achieved with the PhaseCue technology.

This model has a digitally controlled amplifier installed. It uses various complex algorithms to make the output sound properly-balanced and clear.

Another great technology used by this model is the Output Level feature. It adjusts the volume level for different frequencies to make the output sound “softer” – it can be extremely helpful if you are tired of extremely loud commercials. This technology is also great for “quiet” DVD or Blu Ray players.

It comes with an ergonomic remote controller – it has all the necessary buttons (control the volume level, turn various features on and off).

Unfortunately, this model does not have the ports which allow connecting an extra subwoofer.

This solution does not have any wireless modules and it does not support the voice controlling feature. However, it is quite powerful and various technologies help to output loud and crystal-clear sound.
