Logitech Z Cinema

PC Magazine
22 August 2008
  • 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 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.

  • Conclusion: Digitaalitekniikka on alkanut yleistyä tietokonekaiuttimissa huomattavasti. Kaiutinvalmistajat ovat oppineet viime aikoina hyödyntämään entistä enemmän myös usb-väylää, joka mahdollistaa suuret tiedonsiirtonopeudet digitaaliselle äänelle. Samalla voidaan ohittaa tietokoneiden äänentoiston yleisin pullonkaula, huonolaatuinen emolevylle integroitu äänipiiri.
  • Pros: helppokäyttöisyys, virtuaalinen SRS-tilaääni, miehekäs bassotoisto
  • Cons: ohjelmisto, vain auttava tuki muille käyttöjärjestelmille

Test: Logitech Z Cinéma

Gamereactor
15 August 2008
  • Conclusion: Logitechs Z Cinéma Advanced Surround Sound System, puha et langt navn, blev oprindeligt annonceret helt tilbage i januar til dette års CES, og endelig er det lykkedes os at få sættet forbi til en anmeldelse. Sættet består af de to satellitter, en ganske stor subwoofer på 8", og den specielle fjernbetjening. Hver højtaler kan spytte 35W ud, og Subwooferen 110W.
  • Pros: Rigtg god lydkvalitet, fjernbetjeningen, let at installere
  • Cons: Flad lyd uden SRS, kan ikke spille højt nok, meget dyrt
