My Logitech Z506 Review!
on 10 November 2014
First of all, for a budget 5.1 Surround system, these babies are amazing!, the sound is crystal!, the bass can go super high, there's a volume knob on the front right speaker, mines usually only half way and that's loud enough for me, and trust me... its loud..., i tried turning it up to full, there's fortunately no distortion, no crackling, just crystal clear sound!,
The design is sturdy, solid, and goes perfectly with my black desk gaming setup!, you can feel the pumping air blasting out of the sub woofer, even at a pretty low bass!
Now there's always the pros and cons, and there the pros,
Now the cons......
As soon as i got these speakers, i did come across a couple of problems, but iv'e fixed them now!, sort of!, the first problem is, well when i got everything plugged in into the right ports, i noticed there was no sound coming out of the rear speakers, i did a test on the speakers and every single one bleeped, which means it wasn't the speakers! filled with disappointment i did my research, and apparently its a common problem with these speakers, i simply fixed this by first going to
-control panel -> sound
Then go down to (Speakers High definition Device) ->Right Click then "Configure Speakers".
Make sure you choose 7.1, then just go next until it says finish, then click on finish. THEN, again right click on High definition Audio device > Properties > Enhancements > select speaker fill. then your done, now if you experience echo on your rear speakers when playing mp3s etc, that probably means that either the mp3 or the movie file isn't configured for 5.1 Dolby digital surround, so unfortunately you'll just have to find a song that does, or a movie that does, usually an ac3 codex movie.
Another slight problem, which isn't exactly a problem, is the wight of the front left and right, and rear speakers are pretty darn light, and then can fall over if you knock them , but that not a problem for me!
I hope i helped!
