Excerpt: Acceptable price compared to available z-550 optionsWhen my 12yo z-5500 got blown no option for repair could be acquired, central processor blown, and until that sad day it was a beautiful thingThis z906 is alright, it is ok, i like it, it is really, to my searching self, the only thing that can approach the satisfaction of my now moribund z-5500.
Pros: 51 Surround Sound, Bass is good, Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Intuitive Controls, It Is New And Supported, Looks Good Really Does, Pc Compatible, Really Does Sound Good, Very Adequate Sound
Cons: Cannotpush To The Extreme, Limited Volume, Not As Perfect As 5500, Not A Z-550
Liked the Z5500 better but this is a good replacement

Summary: Liked the Z5500 better but this is a good replacement, Adjusting the levels to the room is a bit trickier, but the sound quality is still there. A good deal, best home theater system you can buy for the $$.
Excerpt: awsome all in one pc/tv speakers. i use them to game and to watch movies and tv. great sound that make any inbuild speaker sound weak. one of the highest bang of the buck speakers. i hope logitech makes a 7.1 version of it.
Excerpt: These are great sounding surround speakers but plan on hanging them up in the front an back walls in the room you are installing them in. If you set them near the computer,in front of you, like conventional computer speakers they'll sound distorted. The woofer can be on the floor as well as the middle speaker but I would go with the room corners for the main 4 speakers.
Pros: Clear Sound, Interfaces Well With TV, Thundering Bass
Summary: This logitech is not going to replace a full blown AVR 5.1 system, but for a teenager or someone looking for something good to use as a complete sound system for the computer, XBox, Bluray, it sounds great. Lots of power, good base and clear directional sound for such small speakers. It also comes with long length of wires that can reach most typical rooms this system would fit in.
Excerpt: I have this system hooked up through the optical cable to my Mac Pro and it sounds great! The only reason that I can't give this 5 stars is that it doesn't come with any way to mount the satellite speakers to a wall (and nothing in any of the specs or reviews that I read prior to purchasing it indicated this). I had to go back out to buy third-party speaker mounts, which are rather costly and limiting in how you can mount the speakers.
Summary: great surround sound system in the $300 price range and would definatly recommend. only concern i have is that with the optical it would b nice if the system could create a virtual 5.1 setting with a stereo source as it does with the rca input. on optical input if the source is stereo it only comes out 2 front speakers and sub but that same stereo source comes out virtual 5.1 when going through basic red and white rca inputs
Excerpt: Overall, I have been impressed with this system. I used to have the Z323 before this and the Z906 is a great and very affordable system. Quite glad it works with a computer and iPhone and the sound quality is outstanding. However, I had to do tons of adjustments to to get the sound right but it's very, very good. I would criticize this product for it's drab design, sharp edged subwoofer, and build quality.
