Resurrected my Z-5500

Jett, Amazon

  • Summary: My Z-5500 died a few years ago and I attempted to have it fixed but I was told that the control pod was the issue. It was great to find that replacement pods are available. It works just like the original. Just plug it in the D-SUB connector and turn on the power. Advice to buyers - take important note of the PID of your current unit and make sure that it falls in the range of compatible PIDs stated in the product description.

What you need if your Z-5500 control pod is "Kaput!"

Cary L. Brown, Amazon

  • Summary: It was odd "reviewing" this... as it's a replacement part for a larger system, and thus it's sort of strange, trying to not review the top-level system along with the replacement component. So... let's do both. The Logitech Z-5500 speaker system is a TERRIFIC 5.1 speaker system, providing outstanding "computer-focused" surround sound for games and in-office-media-playback. However, it has a few design defects and quality issues.

I was surprised to find this available.

  • Summary: My original control unit for a Z5500 speaker let it's smoke out a few months ago and was dead after about 5 years service. Since the speakers are no longer produced I expected that I would have a hard time finding a replacement control unit. Doing an on-line search turned up a lot of used parts most of which were non-functional but also turned up this seller who apparently has a stock of new replacement control units for the Z5500. So I ordered one.

I LOVE these speakers

CtcPitt, CNET

  • Summary: I've had these speakers going on 6 years and they have been played/abused/blasted at least 3-4 times a week. I've never had a problem. I have a friend who bought these after I suggested them , and he loves them. My neighbors may have a different opinion, but these speakers ROCK! I'm not surprised that these speakers are fetching upwards of $500 STILL. I'm even seeing them for $900 on Amazon?!?!?!
  • Pros: Bass shakes my house
  • Cons: Bass shakes my house, LOL

Logitech Z5500 Theater Speakers

jeremymb162000, Ebay
9 March 2011
  • Summary: It is a great alternative to the worthy but expensive BOSE theater systems. Awesome for movies and especially for the PS3. For some reason the X-BOX 360 that I have is not powerful enough for this theater system, the PS3 however really shines when mated to the Z5500. You hear FLOOR SHAKING thunderous bass and the highs come thru with such clarity as well.In games like Call of Duty Black Ops, the Z5500 really tells you when someone is sneaking up on you and with pin point...

overall disappointing sound. good bass and loud, but cheap sounding

jimmyzen, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this system to replace a dead Gigaworks 7.1 surround sound system for my new gaming PC. It has a Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion card in it. I still have my old rig which has a Sound-Blaster Audigy 2 ZS I tried this speaker system with both computers and got the same result. I tried all the connection types from each PC to the control panel with this set- direct connect, s/pdif coax, and optical.

Good Quality Speakers at a Good Price

mkmarcos, Ebay

  • Summary: The LT Z-5500 have been not used as computer speakers, but rather as a surround system for my brother's room. When he has the THX certified sound enabled, blasting in his room while he watches a movie or plays a PS3 game, I feel it in my room next door and even downstairs. In addition, he can easily hook up his iPod to it for great bass and a high quality music system. Furthermore, it is easily moved from place to place.

You can pry my Z-5500 remote from my cold dead fingers.

  • Summary: Well that may be a bit dramatic, but you'll be amazed at the quality of these speakers. They bring games and movies/music/TV to life and will get the cops called on you with perfect clarity of sound quicker than you can say "I'm sorry I couldn't hear you knock over the music Officer." These speakers are like broadband internet access. You can never go back to dial up.
