Logitech Z Cinema Home Theater Speaker Review

thetechzone.com
14 January 2009
  • Summary: I’m normally a pretty big fan of what Logitech has to offer. I like their computer mice, webcams, and other peripherals. They’ve also done a reasonably good job with budget speakers, but I feel that they dropped the ball on this premium virtual surround sound home theater speaker system. It might sound like a lot to spend $300 on what is really a 2.1 speaker system, but if the sound quality is stellar, I’d be able to justify that price point.
  • Pros: Bass is crisp and clean, Very attractive looking unit with hidden amber display, Full digital sound that bypasses sound card, Media Center controls
  • Cons: Way too expensive for what it is, Virtual surround sound is less than spectacular, Audio quality is not where it should be, No physical controls on speakers themselves

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: These speakers produce some solid low end and work well with Windows Media Center via the included, option-heavy remote. But controlling software remotely is not always intuitive.
  • Pros: Strong audio performance. Remote has a ton of features. Works with Windows Media Center. Integrates iTunes and other media libraries. Powerful, but not boomy, subwoofer.
  • Cons: Complicated remote. Software can feel intrusive. Controlling Windows Media Player and iTunes remotely can be tricky. Subwoofer is large.

Logitech Z Cinéma Surround Sound System

OverClock Intelligence Agency
11 June 2008
  • Summary: The Logitech Z Cinéma Advanced Surround Sound System is a high quality amplified 2.1 speaker set that is a great match for multimedia center computers. The SRS TruSurround HD mimics a true surround system without the need for extra speakers, although no virtualization, no matter how good, is quite like the sound actually coming from behind you, the Z Cinéma does a decent job of it.

Everything USB
17 April 2008
  • Summary: The USB speakers are an excellent option when surround sound is desired but space is not available. While sound quality is exceptional, true audiophiles will find the Z Cinema inadequate to appease their appetites for a full surround system.
  • Pros: Excellent audio clarity, Surround sound with only 2 Speakers, Stylish design, MCE-compliant remote control bundled, 3.5mm headphone and line-in jacks
  • Cons: Somewhat pricey, Bulky, Virtual surround available only on PC, Lack of high volume, Remote not backlit, Requires Windows XP MCE or better

Logitech Z Cinema Review

Digitaltrends
26 February 2008
  • Conclusion: The Z Cinema is an interesting approach to integrating a home theater PC remote with a set of better-than-average speakers. Overall the package accomplishes most of the goals it set out to achieve, making it somewhat easy to control a wide range of media from the comfort of your couch. Of course, we did have a few difficulties, and must also point out that you must have Vista Home Premium or Ultimate, or XP Media Center Edition to fully utilize the software.
  • Pros: Decent sound quality; remote works very well; easy installation
  • Cons: Expensive; a few interface issues; "surround" sound is so-so

Logitech Z-Cinema Speakers

8 February 2008
  • Excerpt: We’ve been around long enough to never say “never.” That’s why we decided to take a look at Logitech’s new Z-Cinema speakers. They tap your PC’s audio through its USB port, and they rely on digital signal processing trickery to deliver a good audio experience—two of our biggest pet peeves with “multimedia” speakers. But we like ‘em anyway. We first encountered these speakers at a Logitech editors’ day prior to CES.
  • Pros: Enough power to fill a moderate-sized media room; terrific remote control; delivers effective surround sound from two speakers.
  • Cons: Hard-wired speakers; too many LEDs on the satellites; not for audiophiles.
