Kickstarter introductory campaign exceeds 1100% of goal., Massachusetts – August 4, 2017,  ZVOX, one of the world’s most innovative audio companies, is proud to announce that its groundbreaking SB380 sound bar is now available for purchase. ZVOX breaks the sound/value barrier in home theater audio with the SB380 -- its first-ever advanced sound bar system with AccuVoice dialogue-boosting technology for under $300. The SB380 (SRP $299.99) is an aluminum-cabinet sound bar enclosing three high-performance speakers and a built-in powered subwoofer – no external sub is required. Similar to ZVOX’s popular SB400, the SB380 achieves its significantly more affordable price point by featuring a smaller digital amplifier, one less input, as well as cutting back on non-essential features such as Bluetooth streaming. One feature that has NOT been eliminated is ZVOX’s revolutionary AccuVoice dialogue boost, which uses hearing aid technology to make voices crystal-clear.
“While looking for ways to cut costs on our critically acclaimed Sound Bar system without negatively impacting performance, we surveyed our customers and found that Bluetooth has become an unnecessary feature for most home theater users,” says ZVOX CEO Tom Hannaher. “With Spotify and Pandora apps built into many TVs, streaming devices and Blu-ray players, there is no longer a demand for music streaming from phones to TV sound systems. By eliminating Bluetooth and using a smaller but highly efficient digital amp, we were able to curb our costs.” Introductory Campaign. ZVOX introduced the SB380 sound bar via a Kickstarter campaign in June, 2017. Funds raised will be used to promote the new sound bar as part of a direct-to-consumer marketing campaign. The Kickstarter campaign was so successful it exceeded its target goal by over 1100%. The SB380 is now available direct from the web site as well as through Consumers buying through either web site are allowed to use ZVOX’s 60-day home trial to evaluate the product – and can return it for a refund if not satisfied.
