Logitech does 5.1 surround sound on a budget with $100 Z506 speakers

By July 17, 2010 Highlights

Logitech’s boxed speaker sets have always gone over quite well with reviewers, and now it’s offering a 5.1 system that may just be priced at a point that’s too good to refuse. You know, if you holdouts were considering sticking with that 2.0 setup for another score or so. Launched today, the Surround Sound Speakers Z506 are designed to play nice with PCs, game consoles, PMPs and DVD / Blu-ray players. Pretty much anything that sends out an audio signal can be hooked up to these, and Logi even threw in color coded connectors to prevent you from getting overly confused and eventually doing something awfully regrettable with the satellites. There’s 75 watts of RMS power, which should be plenty to fill your moderately sized gaming cave — head on past the break for a promo vid, if you’re into that type of thing.
