I found out recently how overwhelming it can be to try to find the right speaker system that is able to pack a punch at a half way decent price. I was looking for computer speakers which would provide me with the state-of-the-art sound for hearing movies, music, and playing games. For most of the higher end systems, I found the prices were astronomical and I wasn’t even sure if I liked the way they sounded. It wasn’t until I took a look at the Logitech Z-5500 system that I changed my tune about buying computer speakers.
I have always liked Logitech products but I heard that their speaker systems were basically the standard conventional type that you usually see paired with PC setups. What I didn’t realize was that Logitech has changed this perception with their new Z series speaker systems. Well, if you are looking for a thunderous sound at an affordable price, the Logitech Z-5500 is the answer to your dilemma. Here is my Logitech Z-5500 review to show you why:
Mind-Blowing Features I Discovered
When I first looked at the Logitech Z-5500 price I said to myself, “This has to be a cheesy to intermediate system at most.” Much to my surprise I found out that I was terribly wrong. First, I found out that the Logitech Z-5500 earned the THX seal of approval which is usually earned only by a few select home theatre systems. THX is a specific standard of high-fidelity sound reproduction that certifies the sound system as accurately recreating the sound experience equal to a movie theatre. If that wasn’t enough, I also discovered:
- Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 Surround Sound: Wow! I couldn���t believe for the price that this system contained surround sound with Dolby digital quality so I had to hear it for myself. I was blown away by how the speakers delivered what was promised and surrounded me with true 5.1 surround sound with a whopping 550 watts of power. What’s more, the system also has Dolby Pro Logic II which is capable of transforming 2-channel stereo movies, music, and computer games into complete surround sound. Awesome!
- Logitech Z-5500 Subwoofer: When I saw this feature I said, “You have got to be kidding!” Logitech went above and beyond with a long-throw 10-inch subwoofer that provides a deeper bass with a thunderous sound for your movies, music, and games. It certainly made things a lot more exciting and surprised me with the innate clarity of sound.
- Multiple Audio Inputs: There are an impressive number of audio inputs for plugging in multiple devices not to mention the built-in receiver that allows you to plug in your DVD player or any other device directly into the speakers. With all of the audio inputs that are available you can literally have 3 5.1 cables connected from the sound card to the system while simultaneously having digital out going from the soundcard into the system for watching 5.1 DVD movies from your PC.
- Satellite Speakers on Rotating Pedestals: The nifty satellite speakers are versatile enough to change the look, use the rotating pedestals, or mount them on the wall. They also contain phase-plug satellites which are unmatched to the conventional two-way designs and provide you with clear high-end and mid-range tones.
How is that for Logitech Z-5500 specs? This speaker system is an upgrade from the award winning Z-680 and contains new improvements in just about everything plus new innovations such as real-time sound equalization and a Digital SoundTouch control center. I plugged it into my video games and now I do not want to listen to any other speaker system. The Logitech Z-5500 has everything you could possibly want for a price that is ridiculously low for everything you are getting. I found a fantastic deal on this state-of-the-art system here
