Summary: everything sounds great except the sub, u put too much on it and u can smell the coils heating up. i had mine bypassed to a home theatre jbl sub rated at 300watts and sounded soo much better. other than that it's all good. i love it, loud and crisp and clear to the max.
Good Sound but Lacking in Features and Little Touches

Summary: Seven or eight years ago, I bought the predecessor to this system, the Z-5500, and it turned out to be one of the great bargains of my tech buying life. Everything else in my life has changed, but there sits the Z-5500 on my wife's desk pumping out decent surround sound and experience enhancing subwoofs.
Excerpt: after having owned both the 4500 and the 5500 systems all i can say is im very dissapointed with the z-906, dont get me wrong here its still a very good system and its the best currently on the market, but if you can get your hands on a 5500.. get it!, the 906 simply cannot compete with the overall quality of the previous models personally i blame this on the new 8" sub, it just cannot move as much air as the old 10's thus making the sound a lil too "flat", its hard to...
Summary: After having these speakers for a month I am not too impressed. I paid far too much for the quality I got, but then again what else should I expect from Logitech. Compared to the 5500's they have about the same audio quality and are a bit cheaper. I only use them when my head gets tired of wearing headphones.
Excerpt: But as others have said the 5500's are better so I won't be upgrading. The only things the 5500 needs is a crossover adjustment dial, extra optical inputs and maybe floor spikes. It's a real shame that sub cannot be adjusted in terms of Hz cut off. Release this with these features, upgrade some of the cables and components and that will be a cracking system to upgrade.
Excerpt: Have had the z-5500 speakers for several years now and had been looking for my step up. As happy as I had been with said set, I thought this so called step up would blow me away as the z-5500 did the first time I used it but to my dismay it didn't. I unplugged it and took it to the yard sale pile and took my z-5500 out of the sale pile and back in my game room. What a disappointment.
Excerpt: I've waited ages to purchase the next version of the AMAZING Logitech z-5500. Imagine my surprise to discover that the only new feature is a second optical input. But wait! Not only did they dumb down the control panel, remote control and wiring significantly - but price was also increased by $100 MSRP.
Speaker brackets that should have come with the Z906

Summary: The 5.1 surround sound Z906 by Logitech is a mighty fine piece of kit but where to put the speakers for optimized surround sound experience? Wall mounted using the brackets under review. I cannot understand why these were not included but since they weren't I purchased them separately from an independent source through Amazon. At first appearance I was underwhelmed at just how small these brackets are. They feel fragile and are fiddely to affix to the speakers..
