The Logitech Z506 speaker set is the best set of speakers I have owned, especially at this price point. Whilst it is often (in my opinion) incorrectly graded as "entry level", its sound quality makes it perfect for music lovers, the loudness makes it a blast for parties and celebrations, and the subwoofer and surround sound makes films come to life.
The inputs are all analogue. There is no digital optical fibre "Toslink" S/PDIF input. For true surround sound, the only input is a six channel input (green, orange and black 3.5mm jacks). There is also an RCA input (red and white). The green input from the six channel input is also used for most PCs and is likely the only port you will need to be concerned with. The speakers have 75 watts of RMS power, and 150 watts of peak power. This essentially means you can enjoy constant 75 watts of power over long periods of time.
> Sound Quality
The sound quality of these speakers is excellent. Sound does not seem to distort at louder volumes, thanks to the 75 RMS watt power.
The Logitech Z323 seem to be a rather popular set of 2.1 speakers at the moment. I had to opportunity to listen to those speakers, and they too sound rather good and loud, and adequate for house parties. In comparison, those speakers reach 30 RMS watt power (according to the Logitech Website). The Z506 speakers set, however, reach 75 RMS! I thought 30 was sufficient, and I have never needed to go beyond a 1/5th on my computers volume for loudness with these speakers.

I have recently done a garage conversion and the room is being used as a TV/Cinema room. I purchased these speakers to connect directly to my Panasonic BD80 using the analogue audio out connections on the player. With the correct leads this provides `true` 5.1 audio for the room.
I also connect the other aux stereo input to the audio out of my tv via phono connectors. These speaker use a propriety `3d sound` process which gives very good simulated surround sound on this input. This is comparable with the X540 `matrix` mode but cannot be switched off however. Not really a problem though as it is really very good.
I have connected to the TV the following: HD DVD player, Sky HD, , PS2, Wii, and as mentioned a Panasonic Blu-ray player. The reason I am providing all this detail is to let you know you can have a good sound system in your room for around the 80 quid mark when wired up in this manner. In this respect these speakers fit the bill perfectly.
Soundwise they are fine , with nice high end and plenty of bass (adjustable via knob on sub). Power wise they are also adequate for an average size room, definitely loud enough to annoy neighbours.
I also extended the cables for the rear speakers easily by cutting the cable and adding a longer length to both.
I would say they are a step up from the X540 due to the additional stereo input which gives far more flexibility. Soundwise there is not much to choose between them.
I would recommend these to someone on a tight budget and as they are made by Logitech they should last a good while.
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.Read more ›
