Logitech Z-5500 Review

Digitaltrends
3 December 2007
  • Conclusion: The Logitech Z-5500 is the best all-around PC speaker system we have used to date. The sound quality is first-rate, the system looks stylish and the added features/decoders are merely frosting on the cake.
  • Pros: Excellent sound; Plenty of power; THX certified; several processing modes
  • Cons: Lacks TrueHD and HDMI passthrough; minor design foibles

Logitech Z-5500 5.1 Channel Digital Speakers Review

HCW
4 March 2007
  • Conclusion: First of all, you have to consider the scenario these speakers will be used in. For a computer setup, where space is limited, I think you can't do much better than the Z-5500. Just sit in front of them, and listen to a stereo source. The imaging is absolutely stunning.
  • Pros: Supports up to 6 inputs; 2 digital, Decodes Dolby Digital and DTS, and supports Pro Logic II, All the power you need for a PC; sounds great in such an environment, You won't do better than this at $300
  • Cons: Sound quality is lacking outside its element (PC desks), LCD display cannot be disabled or dimmed

  • Summary: Ill keep this short and sweet. I've had mine for four years and it has done every duty in the book that a set of speakers can do. Its been moved back and forth from dorm to dorm, apartment to apartment - all the while ensuring Im kicked out as soon as I arrive. These things rock!
  • Pros: everything
  • Cons: it doesnt make coffee

  • Summary: Hey the bang for your buck ratio is great for these. I got them years ago for $500. I've been using them to replace the little tin box in my TV for years. The satellite surrounds are ignored/not installed for me most of the time as I just don't watch much surround sound.
  • Pros: Strong bottom end. Not high and shrieky like others in the same price range
  • Cons: Bottom end over-bearing. Crossover point poor. Imaging? NO.

  • Cons: sub can be a little droney, mid range sound slightly lacking

  • Summary: I'll put a proper review up later when i have more time. Very quick notes for now, The reasons behind me buying this were simple, We had just moved back to my parents and thus 99% of my Hi-Fi had to go into storage.
  • Pros: Fantastic for small spaces. Phenomenal Bass. Punchy controlled sound as well as having the ability to sweep nice and low! V.Loud if required!
  • Cons: Cable is not the best. Control Pod cable can NOT be extended by using a vga cable. No control over EQ. No line out.

  • Summary: When I decided to replace my crappy Creative Inspire P7800 7.1 Surround Speakers System with something a lot better, I was not after high-end surround sound for audio production or crazy audiophile home theater–I only wanted something that sounded fairly good and has a good sub-bass extension, so I...

  • Pros: Great sound options
  • Cons: Large Sub
