Excerpt: We haven’t auditioned many cheap speaker systems lately. Why? Well, let’s just say we don’t enjoy subjecting our ears to the sonic equivalent of waterboarding. But Logitech has a knack for packing big sound into inexpensive boxes, so we agreed to review its new two-channel Z520 system.
Pros: Great sound for the money; very wide soundstage; attractive industrial design.
Cons: Not enough bass punch for games or movies; hard-wired cables.

Pros: Clear treble, accurate mid-range, decent power levels
