Conclusion: Whenever I review speakers, I try to focus on the design, and features that make them unique. However, the bottom line is always this - do they sound good or not? All of these nifty features are meaningless if they sound like crap.
Excerpt: When it comes down to it, games and other multimedia feed on all of your senses-except for taste and smell, but I'm sure companies are working on that. Typically, if you want a fully immersive experience while playing games, watching movies, or listening to music, it requires more than fancy looking...
Conclusion: The Logitech® G51 Surround Sound Speaker System provides a PC with a high-value addition that gives gamers a full sonic experience at an affordable ($200) price. The system relies on a 6 channel sound card in the PC to get the full potential of 5.1 audio.
Conclusion: The G51 is a very attractive package for the money and leaves us very little to complain about. It provides better-than-average sound quality and power, and is reasonably affordable too, slotting in perfectly between the high-end Z-series speakers and the low-end X-series.
Pros: Plenty of power; sounds excellent; matrix surround works well; great controls
Cons: Wall mounting hardware not included (we had to find something wrong)
Summary: Making all of the necessary connections is very easy, since Logitech color-coded each plug. I will be testing the G51 system alongside my current audio system, the Z-2200 system, which is a 2.1 system. As you can see, the Z-2200 sub is a good bit larger than the G51's sub.
Excerpt: We’re consistently amazed by how companies such as Logitech can jam so many features into a set of speakers that sell for $200. And Logitech’s new G51 system is a good value if $200 is the absolute top of your budget and you must have a 5.1-channel system.
Pros: Best 5.1-channel surround system for the price; neat cutout "mod" option.
Summary: After using a set of Speakers like the Logitech Z-5500s for about a year it’s a little hard not to be judgmental. Keeping in mind that the G51 Speaker System was designed to provide 5.1-Channel Audio to 2-Channel sources we can appreciate the value of the G51s a little more.
