Logitech X 540
Advantages: Great Value
With my set of 2.1 Sony speakers going busy, I quickly found myself in the market for a new pair. The problem with something like Speakers is that if you are bothered about your sound quality and not very wealthy, like myself, then there are a number of competitively priced speakers, but no idea which is the right one to go for,
For me it came down to Logitech and Creative, they are both very good brands I had a choice between this x540 set and also the creative inspire t6100. From reading various reviews it was very close competition, but I settled for this set of speakers in the end.
This is a set of 5.1 speakers. For those of you who do understand this basically means there are five speakers and one subwoofer. Again for those of you who do not know what a subwoofer is, it is basically a big fat box that provides the bass. These are relatively cheap priced surround sound speakers at £60-70 from most high street retailers.
Everything is built and well and for the price you pay the sound quality is great as you would expect from Logitech. The bass is thunderous and of course dont go expecting Bose sounds as these arent Bose speakers, but you will definitely be more immersed into movies, games and enjoy music that extra bit more.
You can turn the base of each speaker to make them easier to wall mount, which is a pretty cool addition. I would advise getting these wall mounter as it is very simple and will add a greater surround sound effect. I can see myself sticking to this set for at least another year until I look for my next grade and hopefully eventually get to the point where I can afford a brand name that is so exclusive that no one will have heard of it.
This is my second set of Logitech speakers and a significant improvement on the 2.1 set that I had before. That was a £20 set that did its job and it was great to have a subwoofer for the first time, but now it is even better to be movng to 5.1.
To sum up if you are looking for surround sound affordable speakers, then definitely check these speakers out. There may be other brands that are better, however I am not aware of a better value for money set of speakers, and please let me know if you know of any. Thanks for reading.
Summary: All in all, a great set of speakers
