These speakers are the first 5.1 speaker system i have bought. before, i had a stereo, and i connected to my PC, with PowerDVD and with Trusurround( a 5.1 simulation service with a 2.0 system), there were no complain at all, although i wanted to give it a try with true 5.1 system.

I was checking on Internet for a 5.1 system not too expensive, in fact creative speakers are cheap,but the bad reviews made me change my mind. so i dicided to go on Logitech.

i was about to buy the Logitech Z-640 6 Speaker Surround Sound System, the price is low (40 bucks!), but i checked the logitech web site, and there were new speakers, this speaker were just 10 more bucks than z-640, and the review i saw on: digitalreviews.net
that practically says that this speakers were comparable with the Logitech's higher end models such as the Z-5300 that cost more than 150 bucks, so i bought it.

i have just tested yesterday, connecting with a dvd player, that has dolby digital decode built-in, maybe this kinds of dvd player has no good quality decoding, but the sound i heard yesterday was amazing, especially the subwoofer, it's like the theater sound really.
Although the power is only 70 watts, and with peak of 140, the sound power were outstanding.

I tested with, Return of the king, Das Boot, The impire strikes back, kill bill vol 2, and it's like to see a new complete different movie!.

Imagine how it's gonna sound with my Audigy zs 2(thx certified), that i have just ordered from Amazon.

Speakers sound fantastic, up to a certain volume level, at which point they begin to show deficiencies in bass and mid-range response. They do a pretty good job filling a small room, but if you like your music loud, you'll find yourself maxing out all volume level controls, wishing you could go one notch higher. I have yet to watch a movie in 5.1 surround (remember, you'll need a sound card that supports a 5 speaker set-up), but I'm sure they'll handle quite well.

Certainly a good value, but if you are truly looking to upgrade to "the next level" like I was, you may consider spending a bit more money.

I seldom leave reviews for products, but after reading the first review, I felt as though I had to leave another that actually addresses the quality of the product in question. Logitech is a company that produces accessories (for lack of a better word) for computers. Naturally, as most computers have a 3.5mm headphone jack, all Logitech sound systems are designed and equipped with the appropriate 3.5mm plug. Logitech's speakers are very high quality and often THX certified. I feel the poor rating posted previously was given out of frustration because the rater was not well informed and he did not thoroughly research the speakers he was buying. There are copious amounts of adapters and converters that can be purchased (at very little cost) to suit his particular needs. As far as sound and quality are concerned, these speakers are 5 stars all the way, and if taken care of, will last a very long time. I still have my first set and they are going strong after 5 years. Research what you are buying before you click "buy"- there is nothing worse than opening a box of non-conforming goods and having to go through the laborious process of a return or having to run out and buy converters. I have shared the previous rater's frustration; however I do not feel as though his bias should negatively reflect the rating given.

This speaker system is designed to handle the audio specturm with high degree of professionalism. The handling of base is very excellent but guys unless u have a dolby 5.1 device or a adapter you wouldnt need all the speakers given. 3 speakers will simply sleep in the box. other than that i highly recommand this piece.

---Update--
I bought a 5.1 Dolby USB adapter to match this device's input requirement. Later I found another catch that the DVD player software which comes along with our laptop can only give a stereo output [Due to some license regards with Dolby systems]so even with this interface only 3 of the 6 speakers are producing sound and to make them [all 6] give 5.1 Dolby sound one needs to upgrade their DVD software. WinDVD 5 is my Sony Vaio's default DVD player software and i have orderd for its upgrade which costs some $12+shipping. So finaly to utilise this device to its full at a COMPUTER one needs to have

1.USB - 5.1 Dolby adapter device
2.DVD software that reproduces 5.1 Dolby [upgrade]
3 Most importantly Movie DVD with 5.1 Dolby sound track or a Player software that can simulate 5.1 dolby from ordinary stereo recordings.

The above will add a price tag $20+$15+Shipping minimum but they are worth the Music effect this device is capable of.

Another Update:
If you cant affort extra USB interface and a software, just use a "Y" male to female 3.5mm stereo adaptor to the green and black male pin and feed 4 speakers and the woofer [Not the center "two-eyed" speaker, its not going to make a difference for this idea]. Believe me by placing alike channel speakers [say "Left"] on your left side of your room/bed and the another channel ["right"] on the right side with the woofer facing you.
