Zvox's 430 HSD costs more, but sounds better
CNET reviews the Zvox 430 HSD, finding it bigger and more expensive than most sound bars, but delivers impressively large sound for movies.
The market for affordable sound bars has exploded over the last two years, but Zvox has been in the game since 2004. The Zvox 430 HSD is one of the more conventional-looking sound bars in the company's line, although it's bigger and boxier than what you'll find made by mainstream competitors. The upside of this bulk is that it allows the 430 HSD to deliver big sound for movies, which is what you're paying for with its relatively high $450 price tag.
In all, we thinkare a better choice for most buyers, but if their pedestal design won't work in your home theater and you want the Zvox sound, the 430 HSD is a solid alternative.
