Excerpt: When I hooked this system up, I could not believe the quality of the low-end. For $140 retail (I actually paid 115 plus tax) the purchase of this system is a no-brainer. If I had to really nit-pick, I would say that the Z623s lack a certain amount of midrange presence, but currently my EQ is flat for these, and I haven't toyed around with it. For the money, you will get a lot of fidelity from your MP3s and movies!
Excerpt: For the money, I can't imagine finding a better sounding speaker setup. I use these on my computer, but have considered moving them to the living room for the TV. I have heard $300 - $400 speaker systems that don't sound this good. The bass is very powerful and the mids and highs really keep up well. As with most speakers, I use equalizer settings to tune to my preference.
Excerpt: My main set of speakers at home Mc Intosh so I have spent 113.00 on speaker wire! Although these speakers may not be true "High- Fi", the THX Certification really makes a difference in the bass response. These are the least expensive speakers I've ever bought and I actually like them! If anyone knows of a better set for less money, I'd be surprised to hear it!!! Buy Them!!!<br /> P.S. Everything I buy from Logitech, I like. Great Company.
Summary: I listen to a lot of electronic music. Dubstep, drumstep, drum and bass, etc. With tons of bass and crystal clear highs these speakers far out weighed my expectations when I hooked them up. After I first ordered them I gave a lot of thought into just upgrading to a 6 channel external sound card and buying a 5.1 system. I'll just stick with these :) they are worth every penny.
Excerpt: Before I purchased these speakers, I purchased Bose Companion 3, which does sound slightly better, but I kept having problems with the satellite speakers. Long story short, I went through three sets of Bose's and all of them developed some problem within a few days (so much for quality!). Now, this set of speakers is way bigger, but they deliver great sounds and the base is just amazing. The price was right and the quality seems to be pretty solid.
Excerpt: Superb speakers. Have these simultaneously hooked up to a computer, Xbox 360, BD player, and a PS3. The sub will shake your walls, for certain. I've never had this higher than 1/3 volume, and still managed to annoy the neighbors more than a few times. Gaming and movies sound great, music even better. Connections seem to be to hard for some to understand, which is probably why these didn't get 5 of 5 stars from everyone else.
