Summary: I am very impressed by sound quality for such a low price.after hearing bose systems,i am pleased with logitech 540for its admirable audio quality.on movies,bass engulf whole room & satellite speakers offered great clarity.i wasn't expectin much for such a low-priced system but I was blown away .this proves you don't hav to pay out mega-bucks for quality sound.the matrix button was real neat-it created a simulated 5.1 sound that had depth.
Summary: I needed speakers for my computer so I could edit videos in 5.1 surround sound. I read a number of reviews online, and Logitech X540 speakers were constantly rated at the top in their price range. I found a good deal on E-Bay, so I bought them. I have not been disappointed. They're not going to shake the walls, but they're certainly good for the price and my purpose. And I like the wired remote control that lets you control the volume and bass.
Summary: Replaced my worn out Klipsch 5.1 system. Logitech has a sound... You either like it, or you don't. I like it, but know that it is far from audiofile sound. The system works great. the little dongle remote thing is odd, but puts volume where I need it. The speaks mout easily. I like the center mount front speak. The bass is woof woof, but nothing window shaking. It works and can easily overpower the speaks.
Summary: I researched these speakers before I bought them, and it was these that I was looking for specifically because I wanted the metal grates over the speakers and the "Matrix" function. The Best Buys around me stopped carrying the X540's and only had the Z506's which look more like desk speakers where I wanted wall mountable speakers, so onto Ebay I went. I was surprised to find this set for as cheap as I did.
Poor connections, broken less than 6 months after purchase

Summary: As with others, I was shipped an EU power connector. People, this is NOT the EU, ship with a PROPER POWER CABLE. Seriously, is it THAT hard to do? Talk about a total scam. Secondly, less than 6 months after the purchase, sub and center have disappeared. They just cease to function. This is just ridiculous, given that I paid close to $100 for this product It's amazing that this company is still in business, shipping horrible garbage like this.
Summary: I just got these and like other people they're apparently the European version. At first I was worried since although it did come with the outlet adapter that adapter said 250V on it. A google search found this, [...] and a post from a Logitech rep said to check the subwoofer near the cord and it would list the voltage. Mine said 110V 60Hz so I'm good. Now on to the speakers themselves.
Summary: I had a great 2.1 Harman/Kardon stereo desktop system with a large powered subwolfer for a long time. Last year, I added a creative 5.1 sound card to my PC build which allowed me to get the most out of my 2.1 system. This Fathers Day, my wife asked what I wanted and I knew it was time to upgrade to a 5.1 surround sound system. The Logitech X-540 system got great reviews, had the watts I wanted and was the right price.
It does not a 5.1 speakes, just are stereo whit a big bass.

Summary: I bought this 5.1 speakers, the only problems that I found were when I Increase the volume to max It has a little distortion, I mean the sound is lost, and you have to lose a little volume. Also it guess the speakers has to be 5.1 sorround system, but it is fake, are just simple stereo speakes that doesn&apos;t can split the channel sound.
Summary: I've used every type of sound system there is except 7.1, and I was not dissatisfied with this system. I've been studying for the best True 5.1 surround sound system for its price and here it is. The volume control is perfect for me because it lays to the left of my keyboard for me to adjust the sound quickly on the fly. Warning: depending on your speaker setup you'll spend a bit of time adjusting your individual speaker levels on your computer.
