Hey Logitech... Bass != Sound Quality!!

Summary: I'll start off by saying that even though my review of these speakers is pretty critical, I don't think they're awful, although they're not good either. If I had to do it over again, I would pass on these speakers. I didn't buy from Amazon and they're pretty heavy so I'd take such a hit returning them or ebaying them that I found a way to live with the faults.
Summary: First things first - users will have to make some significant tradeoffs in making the switch from standard analog computer speakers to the (supposed) conveniences of a USB based speaker setup. To give you some backstory I'm somewhat of a computer audio power-user. Oftentimes I will have several audio applications up and running simultaneously (eg - iTunes to manage my podcast subscriptions, Rhapsody to stream audio throughout my house, a seperate cd-ripping/management...
Summary: I ordered these after doing some research and it became a toss up between this or the z-2300 system. I already own a set of x-230 speakers also by Logitech and have had these for 5 years now (Only £40 back then!). I fancied an upgrade and figured that £115 would buy me some incredible sound. However, after getting them out of the box and testing them I was very disappointed.
Summary: Bon produit pour pc mais n'espérez surtout pas l'utiliser pour autre chose (iPod, tv et autres sources analogiques). L'entrée analogique mini jack offre un rendu catastrophique lorsque le volume sonore est faible (coupure et "réapparition" du son très désagréable, par exemple pendant une scène calme d'un film). C'est vraiment dommage d'autant plus que le son via l'entrée usb est très bon.
