3 out of 5 eggsDoesn't seem much better than z263

Pros: Great sound and build quality. Will probably last for years. More mid level volume than z263 but not by much.

Cons: Might take it back, I have owned z263 for 4 years now and they sound louder than the z906's. Even though there are three more satellites that put out 30watt rms more per satellite! Plus the sub is more powerful than my z263 130watt rms sub and it sounds a lot weaker.

No bass level control like on the z263?

Other Thoughts: The z263 are the best desktop speakers you can buy in my opinion. However, I was looking at the z906 for an apartment home theater set up but they are not very strong. I have it all the way up and it sounds as loud as my z263's at half volume.

Note: 263 are not a good tv speaker, the satellites are not strong enough to carry a big load throughout a room. I thought the extra satellite power would help but it doesn't.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Speakers

Pros: 500 Watt, THX-Certified 5.1 speaker system with a variety of both digital and analog inputs, a control console, and a remote control. Digital formats accepted are Dolby Digital Surround, DTS Digital Surround, and PCM (stereo).

Analog inputs include 6-channel direct (3 cable), RCA stereo in, and Aux-in (3.5 mm on the side of the control console. Digital inputs include 2 digital optical inputs, and 1 digital coax input. There is no limit as to the number of inputs that can be connected at once; the active input is selected either from the control console or the remote control.

Total RMS wattage of components: subwoofer is 165 watts, 6 ohms, at 10% THD. Satellites are total 335 watts RMS, 67 watts per channel, 4 ohms, at 10%THD. Frequency response is 35 Hz - 20 KHz.

The satellite speakers are small enough for a computer desk and weigh two pounds each. The subwoofer is on the large side (11.5 x 11.1 x 12.6 inches) and weighs 19.8 lbs.

Subjectively, these speakers deliver very clean sound. Volume will go higher than I can stay in the room for, with no apparent distortion. Unlike most "computer speakers," these have good mid-range response as well as bass and treble. Response is also good at normal volume; it doesn't require loud volume for these speakers to deliver good, balanced sound.

Cons: No real cons noted.

Other Thoughts: For these speakers to work as designed, you need to get the rear satellites behind you. This will not only improve the quality of movie and sound playback, it will also enable positional audio in the games that still support it.

5 out of 5 eggsI Like EM!

Pros: -loudest speakers i have ever heard for this price range
-great solution for output from a single (directly connected) device

Cons: -price dropped quickly after i bought these at release (should have been patient)

Other Thoughts: i dont have a very high amount of experience with audio quality. i am nowhere near most audiophiles and consider myself a layman when it comes to this type of technology.

that being said, i am very satisfied with the quality of this system. could it possibly be because i've never heard anything better? absolutely! overall i do love these speakers though and can verify they will rattle the house.

that being said i believe it is more important to most users to be educated on what these things are really meant for. cruising the internet, i saw a few cases where people were trying to integrate this system with a home theater system (A/V receiver and the like)

while this may be technically possible, its not a good idea. these speakers were made to be either the HUB for audio connection inputs, or the single audio output from a device (like a computer).

in short i wouldn't try and route audio through an A/V receiver to this system.

i purchased these for my computer originally, but then discovered i use headphones 99.9% of the time while on my PC. so, i decided to try and repurpose them by attaching them to my TV.

now i haven't purchased an AV reciever, but i was about to. in my scenario this was unnecessary. all i had to do was connect this system to the digital coax connection on my TV via the orange cable, and viola any device i connect to my TV via HDMI (chromecast, etc) will work with these speakers and output proper surround sound if the content being played supports it.

it is important to note i have an older LCD tv that has a digital coax connection. i dont see this coax connection being around much longer. the better solution now is an A/V receiver for a home theater setup and HDMI connections.

i was going to go this route but i think ill stick with my current setup until i get a new TV. its just not worth the investment for me to get an A/V receiver and all new speakers at this time.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's good and bad at the same time

Pros: It's a 5.1 system for your computer that works well with either analog or optical inputs. For use in a small room it can produce nice enough sound right out of the box with no tweaking needed unless you're a stickler for particular frequencies. It also comes with a proper sub woofer (more on this later) rather than a cheap and rattly plastic shoebox like other 5.1 PC bundles tend to come with. The control unit is easy to use, though it's not much of a control panel. It just adjusts the volume and can switch between 3 stereo virtualizations that are all pretty weak. It also comes with a remote, the I get the feeling that the 3 AAA batteries that go into it are probably worth more than the remote itself. It's happy meal tier cheap.

All in all, if you aren't an audiophile, this is probably a solid purchase for your machine. It delivers what it promises.

Cons: For the asking price, people are being robbed. This is not a $400 system. Something closer to $250 would be more fair. The satellite speakers are about what I expected. There's nothing special about them and the sounds aren't as full as they should be. The included wires made me cringe when I saw none of them were even copper, but whatever. The worst and most baffling aspect of this system though is that the receiver is built into the sub woofer.. This presents a whole host of problems ranging from never being able to use a better sub to never being able to use a better receiver. It's also lacking an HDMI port so you're stuck with analog or toslink. Not a terrible thing but for $400 this is kind of silly. The sub also lacks phase switches and frequency knobs so you're flat-out stuck with whatever frequency the manufacturer set the sub catch.

Also, this "165" watt sub is less powerful than my 85 watt Kenmore and my 100 watt Pioneer and produces a distinctly dirtier bass while the other two produce a velvet-like smooth and deep richness. Again, because the receiver is part of the sub, you can't just replace it. Very bizarre design choice, presumably to cut costs. The receiver should have been part of the control console. Alas, it is what it is and the likes of intelligent Cambridge Soundworks old designs are dead and gone.

Other Thoughts: I'm not displeased nor regretting this purchase but that's not going to stop me from having a problem with the many flaws of this design. It's fine for most people, I think, but some of us have more acute/sensitive hearing than other people. It's part of human trait dynamics. For us, we need something more refined and that's not our fault, it's just a genetic quirk. I see a lot of people disliking the reviews of such people for being critical of aspects of this system and I don't think it's fair, nor do I think people can appreciate that the reviews that are written are genuinely pointing out flaws that most people who aren't as audio sensitive can perceive.

That said, I doubt this system would disappoint many people and it's perfect for a small room setup like for a computer. At the same time, however, the unit is almost comically overpriced. If you can get it on sale then do so, but $400+ for this stuff is a bit of a ripoff.

Oh, and if you are using the realtek onboard audio, that's all fine and dandy. Perfectly functional... but you'll want something a bit more robust in digital audio capability with this system as the realtec hardware/codecs can only produce weak sound fidelity. Certainly not enough for this system to take advantage of.

1 out of 5 eggsPOOR CUSTOMER SERVICE

Pros: Worked nice for 6 months sound was very crisp and had good base response

Cons: After 6 months this unit stopped working. I have tried to contact the manufacture and after 2 weeks they send me a e-mail asking me if I had everything connected properly. I even tried to call them and never could get anyone to answer. After spending this kind of money you would think the manufacture would back his product. I have purchased $50.00 head sets and had response from the manufacture in 2 days

Other Thoughts: With the number of good quality speakers out there and the total lack of customer support from Logitech I would highly recommend spending your money with a different manufacture

4 out of 5 eggsGreat sound!

Pros: Excellent bass, pretty good detail in the Highs and the Mids are actually present. Easy connection options, good amount of inputs. DTS and Dolby sound pretty good with minimal speaker tweaking.

Cons: Takes quite a bit of option and speaker tweaking on the PC if you're connected via analog. Good sound card/onboard is a must.

Other Thoughts: I just upgraded from the Logitech Z5300e 5.1 system which was analog only and had just one main input. The overall sound is better on the z906 but setup was much easier on the old system. I think the main difference is that the old system was primarily intended for PC/analog consoles at the time and the z906 is intended for just about everything you can throw at it except HDMI. It is almost a receiver. Which makes sense as the analog connection isn't tuned for games out of the box. Digital seems fine though.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat speakers for the price

Pros: Incredibly clear details
long wires
really loud if you want it to be

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I own a Audio Technica ATH M50 and I will be honest, the sound quality between the 2 is at best very small, if not none. I have no idea why anyone would say the Z906 lacks detail.

5 out of 5 eggsBe Prepared For Bleeding Ear Drums

Pros: Great speaker system, clear and crisp sounds. Movies or gaming or music, you'll be set for some bleeding ear drums with a sense of hyper-realism when that bullet ricochets next to you. LOUD, powerful sub, heavy satellites. The control pod on the device is nice, switch between inputs on the fly.

Cons: Expensive (so?), no TOS link cable included (you're going to WANT to have that). Software support could be *better* but I'm not knocking an egg off because it's probably just because I'm running this on *nix

Other Thoughts: I've had countless Logitech products, this makes my 3rd speaker set from them. Look, if you want a speaker system that will have deaf people telling you to turn these down; look no further; half-power and I can hear them across a 1800sq ft house no problem. They're expensive, so what? These are most likely the greatest speakers you'll get for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate from 11/16/2011

Pros: After using this set for a while, my conclusion is if you use them as entertainment speakers by hooking them to your TV or BlueRay/DVD player. The sound is GREAT for listening to music. However, watching movies are another story. See con for more details.

Cons: I can only hear the sound of the movies not the dialogs, no matter how loud the volume is. In other words, I barely hear what they are saying in the movies.

Other Thoughts: Just like others have said, this set is not for home entertainment system. This is for PC entertainment system (need to have a good soundcard).

If you listen to the music more than watching movies, this set is as good as Bose is. You'd save few bucks.

Logitech, please make an improvement then YOU WILL BE THE BEST!
