13 June 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. If you're the type who watches movies on the computer, again, these would be just right for you.
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
Excerpt: Logitech has taken its award-winning Z-680 speaker system and made it even better. How? By improving everything from the subwoofer to the satellites and adding new innovations like real-time digital sound equalization. The result is the Logitech Z-5500 Digital, a THX-certified, 500-watt 5.1 surround sound speaker system that offers everything you could possibly want... and some things you didn't even know you needed.
