I purchased these Logitech Z906 speakers for around £300 from a local electrical store, however looking online now it can be bought for a slightly lower price of £261.23 from Amazon. Although the price tag is quite high, me and my partner were craving a new sound system to attach to our TV, so from our positive past experiences with the Logitech brand we decided to go ahead with the purchase and it's a decision we have not regretted.

The Logitech 5 logitech speakers come with all required cables, subwoofer, batteries, and remote. All which were packaged in a fairly big sized box securely and neatly.
The speakers are all have a nice black glossy finish, which matches well with the black central system and remote. I specifically chose black coloured speakers as our TV is also black, meaning the speakers could almost camouflage into the background without being noticed much. The speakers are also good compact size meaning it was easy to find a place for them to sit as they don't take up too much room. The speakers are a little on the heavy side, which is mainly due to the durable and sturdy cosmetic build of the speakers. The wires include two long length wires, and 3 short length wires, and the wires allowed the speakers to be positioned a good distance from our TV in our medium sized living room.
These Logitech speakers are easy to install and setup, all that is required is for the five speakers to be positioned in the desired spots along with the central system, the subwoofer and then connect all the cables. It took around 15 minutes to get it all connected to our TV, which is not long at all as the instructions were easy to follow and well...its basically just about connecting the wires and then your ready to go, nothing complicated. These speakers can be connected to wide range of devices, such as iPods, PC, Mac computers, DVD players, DVR, TV, Playstation 3, Xbox, Wii.
The speakers have integrated wall mounts meaning they can be fixed onto the wall easily and effortlessly. We positioned two on the wall and the others on our TV stand, as the best results usually come from spreading the speakers out a little so you can experience real surround sound. The remote control is wireless so all aspects of the speakers can be controlled effortlessly, such volume control for specific speakers as well as other setting controls.
After spending £300 on these speakers, I was more than happy with the sound quality. The sound output is amazing, the bass was also incredible and was able to balance the sounds really well. Even at very high volumes there was no distortion in sound, every sound effect from the movies felt like the action was happening in the same room. Music, video games etc all played with the same high quality sound that really made the atmosphere in the room that much more vibrant and alive.

I honestly can say that the price reflects the quality in this case, and I thankfully do not regret spending £300 on these speakers. These are great quality speakers that produce amazing quality of sound, and as a result get a full 5/5 rating from me.

Logitech Z906 (5.1 Surround Sound System)
Since the recession, like many people I have had to make many cut backs and have been a lot more careful with how much money I spend and what it goes on! Which is why it took a lot of if's and maybe's before I parted with my hard earned money for the Logitech surround system.
I had been after a surround kit for a while purely just to listen to music at a decent volume downstairs and to improve the film experience and although having searched the web and looking around local electrical outlets I hadn't quite come across something like the Z906 package!
It was only after going to a party at a friends house one night I was curious to what speakers where producing such a crisp sound with such a high quality of bass.. He then showed me these "small" surround speakers.. I really just couldn't get over the sound that was been produced from such small units!!!
Following this I decided I had searched long enough and went and purchased my own set online from amazon. The initial shocker was the price tag coming in at just short of £300! And then the weight of the box on delivery, again knowing that the speakers weren't very big and I hadn't anticipated the package to be just short of 20kg!
Once removed from packaging the setup was a 5minute process, simply a case of positioning the 5 satellites around the room and the sub central, all cables, power leads and even batteries for the remote were included.
The system operates as 5.1 sound which clearly devides the output across 5 monitoring speakers and bass is produced through the single sub-woofer providing an impressive 500 Watts output!
...which I must add delivers a very nice touch to those creepy moments in the latest horror!
One thing I really love about the unit its the versatility, how you can connect your laptop, I-phone, Blackberry, I-Pod, XBox, DVD Player, TV, and practically anything which delivers audio via a Phono, Mini-Jack (RCA). The unit also features a digital coaxial line for optimal high definition quality.
Overall sound quality can not be compared in my view, I am a person who really likes loud volumes and can really notice the difference between a poor and good output. Even when operated towards the maximum volume there is no distortion or lack in quality.
I would really recommend the purchase of this system if you are willing to spend that bit extra for the overall quality.
Thanks for reading.
I have never been a owner of a surround sound before so i have never set up speakers and didn't know how to deal with all the wires and cables but overall i found it pretty straight forward to set up, The difficult part was trying to imagine where they would go in the room so i could evenly space them. The digital optical cable you need to attach the speakers to the TV isn't included and the electric cord coming from the subwoofer you need to plug into the wall isn't that long so placing the speakers is more complicated than i first thought.
But overall once it is finally set up the sound coming out is amazing. It's like being in a theater the subwoofer was making my TV cabinet vibrate ! I only use them for short periods of time so i cant comment on how they handle longer periods of time for long parties etc and so far mine have been amazing so i fully recommend buying these if you like your music loud and clear !
This is a review for the Logitech Z 906 5.1 speaker system. I got this after having witnessed its sheer volume and amazing sound from a friends house. It litrally will blow you away the immense sound that comes out of each and every speaker. I managed to get this for around £210 which is not cheap but nor is it expensive for what you get. The only downside would be that it is hard to arrange the speakers for the perfect sound so I would suggest that you get someone who knows what they are doing before you start trying to set this up. It comes with a handy remote controll. This works wonders in any sized room but is better suited for the larger rooms such as main living room. Buy this and watch your best DVD/Blue rays and you will wonder why you never purchased it months ago. I have previously owned two 5.1 speaker systems and this is a clear winner. The only other option for better quality would be to spend the extra few hundreds on the equivalent bose system that would probably cost you three times the price.
I'll start by saying that these speakers are incredible. These are 5.1 speakers, which if you didn't know means that there are 5 speakers usually accompanied by a bass. A the bass that comes with these speakers is incredible. When watching movies, listening to music, or playing games the bass will shake the house. Explosions sounds amazing as do bullets flying past. On unboxing the speakers you will immediately notice how heavy the speakers are which just shows how good their build quality is. There are 4 speakers which are all the same which are the front and back 2 speakers, the front speaker and the bass. Also included in the box is 5 wires, 3 short and 2 longer wires to spread the speakers out in your room. The wires won't be long enough for some rooms but it's easy just to join it to some other wire you can buy cheaply. The box also included a cable to connect your speakers to one audio device through a 3.5mm audio jack.
The speakers also have a huge range of connectivity. This includes 2 Digital optical inputs, 1 Digital coaxial input, Six-channel direct input, RCA input and 3.5 mm input. I currently have mine connected to my PC, TV and Xbox.
The sound of these speakers is just incredible, but that should be expected for the price. The sound is deep and the bass doesn't distort even had higher volumes. If you want maximum sound from your PC, like I do, then you might want to consider investing in a sound card.
You also have the option to wall mount the speakers if you want. The actual bass which all cables connect to is huge, so if you have a small room that might be a problem. There is a control pod, with a remote, which allows you to change inputs, increase the volume of everything or by certain speakers at a time. You can also change between 5.1, 4.1 or 2.1.
If you're into downloading music then you might have a few songs that have the bitrate of 128kbps. Personally I think this is too low quality to listen too on these speakers, I'd recommend atleast 320kbps to get the full effect of the speakers.
Now to the price, ~£300 is a lot of money, so be sure that you really want these. With that being said, they are worth it and will last years. On the off chance they do break, Logitech customer service is second to none providing incredible support if any problem were to arise.
These speakers are a great set of music playing devices, they come with 5 normal speakers and 1 massive sub which really lets off the sound of bass and lets you know that its there. you can really get a feeling that your in a nightclub if you switch it up to full blast! ive been looking for some good speakers for some time now and thats really what i needed to do with my money
i think that these speakers would be perfect for someone who needs to play loud music while they watch a film to make them really feel like there in the movie!
these speakers are easy to setup and dont need you to mess about with them, perfect for someone who aint a computer or technical whiz kid. its as simple as plug and play!
You can find these in most technology stores and you dont have to mess about as the box will fit simply into your car and you can get it home with ease.. i wouldnt recommend trying to get them on the bus though cause its rather bulky!
The Logitech z-906s are the best 5.1 surround sound computer speakers that I have ever owned. The sound it produces is incredible and powerful. This speaker system comes with Lucas Arts "THX" certification, which basically means audio of a high standard. While watching my favorite movies, the speakers made action scenes seem like I was there. I could hear bullets flying by my head, cars racing by, explosions tearing up the gravel. It made me appreciate the quality of the surround sound especially the systems 5.1 surround sound. The system comes with a whopping 500 watts of total power including 165 watts of subwoofer noise. With soo much power coming from these speakers I almost forgot these were still computer speakers. They sound more like quality home cinema speakers that cost 3 times as much.
The Logitech z-906 has a plethora of inputs; one optical, one coax digital and four stereo inputs so that it can accept both digital and analog signals. It can also decode the Dolby Digital and DTS sound formats as well as 3D stereo. The z-906 can be connected to a game console, dvd player or to your computer via (2 optical digital inputs, 1 digital coaxial input, 1 six-channel direct input, 1 - 3.5 mm input, and 1 RCA input) If you're connecting them to a computer, I would recommend having them hooked up to a high end sound card, but if you dont have one you can still appreciate the sounds that come from the system. In fact the sound is so good that you could even use this in a home theater setup. Included with the system is a remote control which allows you to easily switch inputs on the unit. Very convenient if you have it hooked up to a home theater setup in your home.
The sounds produced by the z-906s are simply awesome. The mids, highs and low tones coming from the system are crystal clear. The sub woofer produces bone shattering, thunderous bass, that you could hear a neighbors house away. These have to be the best computer speakers on the market today, if there not I would be shocked!
I recently purchased these Logitech speakers with the expectation of connecting my laptop to them in the hope of hearing a crisp and clear sound and these definitely met and exceeded my expectations. Although they were a little on the pricey side but they are well worth paying that extra bit of money for. These were my first set of surround sound speakers and I was a bit apprehensive in spending such a large chunk of money on them but I have never looked back.
Most of my other previous speakers used to crackle at high volumes and the bass would sound tinny but these Logitech Z 906's were amazing and can easily handle the excessive noise levels. The speakers themselves are all interconnected by wires and they are very easy to assemble and the pack comes with a guide for the best sound quality in terms of positioning as they do provide a theater atmosphere of surround sound.
Everything that you may need is provided in the set and the remote control is a great addition to my life especially when entertaining guests. The infrared feature allows me to actually change songs while still sat in the comfort of my chair and adjust the volume etc. The treble, bass and general sound can be adjusted on the main speaker depending on the general output you wish to achieve.
I have purchased many Logitech products over time and they are durable and these speakers fit the bill in that department. The aesthetics of the speakers are immense as well with the actual main speaker itself vibrating and pulsating to the beat.
Logitech Z 906
"Power for the price you pay"
As the title suggests these speakers have characteristics that are simply awesome but I would argue for a price of around £300, depending where you purchase them from you can expect that!
I purchased these recently at the end of a long month battling with my previously rather poor and inexpensive surround sound speakers... I personally enjoy my films, my games and my drama series; sad maybe but there is nothing worse than watching TV or playing on the Xbox and listening to the high definition sound effects through ineffective, poor quality speakers.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~So how do these compare the challenge? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The sound quality on these speakers is remarkable. The depth of the sound and the overall calibre is exceptional. It really showed the difference a set of speakers can make, and boy was I excited I immediately tested them by playing music through them, games, movies and whatever I threw at them they handled without any problem at all. One could say they played to the sound of music... No muffling of sounds, no distortion - pure clarity of perfect sound! Hmmm I like!
£300 - hmm! A bit speechless really, it is shocking I chose to spend that much on a set of speakers when they don't move, they don't take me from A to B and quite frankly they don't save my life. But they are a bit of luxury that will last (important to note that they do come with a 2year warranty which should cover the consumer for the most part) and though I have not 'warn them in hugely so far I have not had one problem with them! 5 star for reliability...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Compared to others~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have not got a massive experience with surround sound or speakers however I would argue I have had some of the cheapest alternatives that are literally a round thing with mesh over, and compared to these the difference is unimaginable! The only advice I could provide is when looking for speakers do not look at aesthetics unless you can afford to pay over the £400 mark as only over this mark will you find perfect sound quality and sensational aesthetics. However saying this the Logitech Z series are a rather meaty/ beastly looking set of speakers!
An absolutely cracking set of speakers, I have pondered recently on whether they are worth the high price tag and more positives outweigh the negatives. These speakers offer exceptional sound at a competitive to high price. One thing I do know is Logitech have not wasted a penny of the money you pay for them, quality is brimming, music is pounding and though my wallet is far emptier than it was - it is happy!
