Whether you're into games or movies, you have to have great sound to totally immerse yourself into the experience and that's what you get from Logitech's X-540 speaker system. The FDD2(Frequency Directed Dual Driver) technology produces a uniform sound field anywhere in the room. A ported, down-firing sub-woofer moves massive amounts of air for a powerful bass response.

They also won't work on laptops. They won't work on any Mac computer (desktop or laptop) as Macs support digital optical for surround. They won't work with a PS3. They won't work on an XBOX 360. They won't work with DVD players Blu-Ray or otherwise. They won't work with Tivo or ReplayTV or AppleTV or Boxee or Roku or Popbox or any internet streaming media set top box.
They only work with desktop computers that have the old analog 3 port mini jack connectors. Yes they still sell some computer that have that type of old analog connection. These speakers have no internal surround sound decoding abilities. Most computers these days support digital optical audio out and these won't work with those.
1 star because not only is it misleading to sell surround speakers that only work with some computers but because it wouldn't have cost them too much to add digital surround decoding and because the description is not clear enough to non-tech people that these speakers are so limited in their application.
Update - Well, massive problems have arisen and I have dropped my rating down to one star. When the speakers work, they are great. However, I was sent European speakers with a simple adapter plug for US use (on the back of the sub-woofer it says 230 Volts, 50 Hz 250 mA). The plug is a two-prong smooth European type with a clip-on two blade adapter. The problems have been growing, with clipping, dropped sound, sound dropping when an appliance came on, etc. I did not realize the problem was due to the speakers being a European version (haven't used European electricity in a quarter of a century and assumed the power plug was some kind of universal mount and the provided adapter was all I needed). I have checked with Logitech and one of their representatives addressed this issue on their forums, as other people also have ended up with the European version of these speakers. The representative said, if the device is a 230 Volt version, you will need to purchase a step down transformer. I have sent in a complaint to the dealer through Amazon and will post whatever response I get. In the meantime, I strongly recommend you do NOT buy this product without ensuring you are getting the American version.
I have these. My bass speaker has a huge rip in it, but it still sounds fine. One of the speakers now makes questionable sounds, so I just don't use that one any more. And for my computer I only need the one input so there has always been a few extra wires.
So, why the great review?...
I bought these speakers for the release of Doom 3 in 2004. They were great. I could quite literally hear the creatures enter my area from wherever they came...behind, back right, etc. I know all speakers do this now and that is not why I am writing.
I am a professional artist, I was playing Doom in a leaking warehouse, where I lived and worked and conducted underground punk,/metal shows. Whenever I moved my office, I would carry these things by the wires, throw them around, yank them. Sometimes I had to go in my murky roofed, leaking office, in the dark, during art shows or punk shows, and I would accidentally kick these speakers all over the place...then get mad that I tripped over them...and kick them again... on purpose.
These speakers have been moved 20 times in the last 13 years, by the wires, stuffed in boxed, sitting in 200 degree temperatures and humidity. I still have them. Just today one started vibrating. and this is not because of the 2 year old cheeto that is lodged in the bass speaker cone. The cheeto had no effect. There is finally a significant rip in the bass speaker. I finally ripped it enough to effect it. My Yamahas for my underground venue have been repurchased more than 3 times. These keep going....These speakers SHOULD not be working after all the abuse.. for 13 years. They are. Get them.
I am here only because I was looking for some new speakers for my new computer for the New Doom that came out last year!!!
