5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with my purchase, August 23, 2007
This review is from: Logitech X-540 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System with Subwoofer (Personal Computers)
I am very happy with these speakers.

I replaced a cheap 2.1 set of speakers, and this sub-woofer is much better sounding than what I had before. Of course you could get even better sound by spending a lot more money, but I believe these are a very good value.

Remember you might need to reconfigure Windows and/or your BIOS and/or your Sound Card for a 5.1 speaker setup. When you are properly setup, you do NOT need to turn on the "Matrix" feature. That is only needed when you connect it to a simple stereo source like a video game console. Your computer will "upgrade" your stereo music to a 5.1 signal when configured correctly, so like I said, you can leave the Matrix button turned off when connected to your computer.

The only negative, as others have shared, is the CABLES ARE SHORT. Add $15 to the price to include a trip to Radio Shack for some RCA extension cables.

I am stilling giving this a 5-start rating, since I knew about the cable length issue before I bought it.

So, should I buy the cable extensions which Amazon says are "frequently bought together"?

I didn't have to buy any other cables. The cables were plenty long for regular computer setup...in fact, they're quite long. The speakers are awesome and have great sound! Good luck and enjoy!
