SWAMPSCOTT, MA - 10/03/2018 (PRDistribution.com)
Swampscott, September 28, 2018 – ZVOX, the creator of the world’s first speaker with hearing aid technology, is proud to introduce its latest AccuVoice TV Speaker, the newly designed Model AV201 (SRP: $199). Like the original, hugely popular AV200 speaker, the AV201 uses advanced digital algorithms to clarify and lift voices out of a TV soundtrack – and uses of hearing aid technology to make the dialogue crystal clear.
Customize Your Listening Experience by Choosing Your Level of Powerful Dialogue Boost!
The AccuVoice AV201 Speaker uses the same speakers, sleek cabinet and advanced processor as the original AV200 – but takes crystal clear listening to the next level by offering users a choice of two separate settings of dialogue boost, making it ideal for TV viewers who suffer from mild hearing loss. ZVOX’s patented algorithms lift voices out of the soundtrack and manipulate the signals to make dialogue remarkably clear, without affecting the rest of the soundtrack. In addition, the system’s Output Leveling system automatically tames loud commercials. The AV201 delivers room-filling home theater, and with only one connecting wire and a one-page owner’s manual, it’s easy to hook up and easy to use.
ZVOX CEO, Tom Hannaher points out that “ZVOX is proud to be leading the way in bringing simple, effective TV listening solutions to consumers with mild to moderate hearing loss. With millions of Americans over the age of 50 suffering from minor hearing impairment, our AccuVoice TV speakers bring TV dialogue front and center once again, and the new AV201 lets users further customize their audio environment with two powerful levels of voice boost, so everyone can hear all the dialogue in all their favorite TV programming.”
New Remote Features Larger Print, Fewer Buttons
For total user simplicity, the AV201’s newly configured remote control features larger, intuitively arranged buttons with larger, easy-to-read print, plus a sturdy, water-resistant structure. Like all ZVOX sound systems, the AV201 can be easily programmed to respond to virtually any infrared remote control.
The AV201 AccuVoice Speaker uses the same sleek, strong aluminum cabinet as the AV200 and the company’s top of the line model AV203. Only 17” wide, the AV201 uses a computer processor that mimics the functionality of a hearing aid. It applies an advanced compression/equalization algorithm that lifts voices out of background sounds to create the clearest dialogue reproduction ever. This patented technology is activated only when voices are detected in a soundtrack. The AccuVoice AV201 TV speaker uses a digital amplifier and three high performance full-range speaker drivers with neodymium magnets to create realistic, room-filling sound.
