Great sound, little annoyances, then died in 11 months

Summary: I purchased a refurbished unit, and the subwoofer was dead. I sent it back for an exchange, and included the control unit just in case. They replaced the control unit as well, and the new one could not be paired with the wireless speakers.
Impressive room-filling sound PLUS wireless satellites

Summary: So far I am happy with the sound thumping from the Logitech Z-5450 speaker system attached to my aging computer system. A new Mac purchase will include digital audio output. For now I am listening to stereo iTunes music enhanced by the Dolby Pro Logic II Music feature effect with "Panorama" enabled.
Summary: They have fabulous sound for such small speakers. The only problem I had was once I installed Vista I could no longer get sound our of the wireless rear speakers unless I used the PLII effect. I think it's a logitech driver issue that logitech hasn't come up with a solution as of yet.
Summary: in Few words Great crisp clear sound using my creative X-Fi Extreme Card (not using creative software plus they have not released for Vista as yet anyway). Not So Good: You really need to bump up rear volume to to get a good feel of rears in 5.1 surround sound mode which is non Dolby/DTS 5.1 The...
Great speakers, but a caution for wireless network users

Summary: These speakers feature a control console, a HUGE woofer, a medium size center speaker, and 4 satellite speakers. The 2 surround speakers are wireless. Yes, they have an AC plug that is on a wire used to supply power to the speaker, but no signal wires going back to the amplifier.
Summary: For 34% of retail price, I dont think I am allowed to complain (given that people called it a good price when it was much higher.) But I don't have anything to complain about anyways. In terms of sound quality, the speakers are great.
Summary: Although the rear speakers need a power plug, this system solved my problem of being unable to run a signal wire to the back speakers from the front. The sound is OK, not awesome, but not bad. Better than the TV speakers by a long shot. They can also be nicely controlled with my Harmony remote.
Summary: If you shop around, you should be able to get this item (including shipping) for under $300. At that price, it's not a bad deal. For every $50 above $300, knock a star from my review. Why? That sound isn't really all that special. I do not mean to say that these sound bad, by any stretch.
Compromised sound quality for features and compact size.

Summary: I give high score to this system. Maybe not for audiophiles but it is well balanced for most consumers. Sound quality is impressive consider the compact size and wireless speakers. The wireless signal to satellite speakers is down convert to 48khz; but it still creates surround effects nicely.
Summary: I saw these speakers on sale and bought these speakers with a lot of reservations. I'm very sceptical about little speakers systems that can defy the law of physics: They usually can't be played loud or create accurate sounds. After setting up, and put them through some of my favorites DVD's.
