Logitech shows its Z506 5.1 speakers

Written by Slobodan Simic

Quite good for $100

Logitech has announced a quite interesting 5.1 speaker system that will not hurt your wallet and should appeal to a wide population of budget minded consumers, the Z506 5.1. The new Z506 can be connected to wide variety of devices via 3.5mm input and RCA connection so consoles, computers and media/MP3 players are pretty much covered.

Despite its quite interesting US $100 price tag, the Z506 offers quite a punch with its 27W subwoofer, four 8W speakers and a 16W center speaker. All adds to 75W of RMS power and Logitech even added the support for 3D Stereo surround sound.

The Z506 should show up in retail sometime next month.

Looks a bit like the x-540's that they are likely replacing, which replaced the x-530 that are currently on my desk. Specs look pretty close too. I will say I've had these speakers since 2005 and I've been happy with them since. Not quite as much horsepower as the Creative speakers they replaced, but then again the Creative's died 2 weeks after the warranty ran out. Five years later these are still going strong.

Not even a wired remote anymore? They look pretty plain too.

cool, slightly higher watts than the X-540's slick design. I'm not super familiar with electronics but I think it would be better to have a mesh in front of the satellites.

And good thing there's no Wired control. Its a nuisance to have a another wire/dongle.
