Pros: everything

Cons: it doesnt make coffee

Ill keep this short and sweet. I've had mine for four years and it has done every duty in the book that a set of speakers can do. Its been moved back and forth from dorm to dorm, apartment to apartment - all the while ensuring Im kicked out as soon as I arrive. These things rock!


The small speakers do tend to be outclassed by the bass driver. They get loud, but the dont project very well. This set is best suited for near-field use to medium sized bedrooms. Also, this set is perfectly acceptable as a bedroom surround system, its simply fantastic. I would buy again if this were to die.


how does it work?
THX is simply a certification that an audio/visual component can designate if it passes a set of qualifications. The speakers in question meet or exceed these qualifications. If it is Dolby Digital or DTS that you re referring to, that is achieved by hooking up a digital source via S/PDIF Coaxial or Optical cable. This unit will accept either.
$1.298 is totally a scam. When they first came out they were $399 so why the 300% jump in price. I think Amazon just like to jack prices even if the product isn't worth the price there asking..
It's not Amazon, it's a third party reseller, and it's because the item has been discontinued so you can't really find these anywhere anymore.
Your saying the price is jacked for the Logitech Z-5500 is because you can't find them anymore. Well that is so far from the truth you can find new units still on E-bay and kijiji in Canada plus i deal with a local computer store in my 1 horse town and they have a connection if i wanted 5 units id have them in 3 days. 13 months ago i bought mine new for $450.00 these third party resellers you talk about are scam artists and i know if i want 3 or a half dozen units they would find them real them its all about profit
