About the Product
Logitech Z-5500 Speaker System Logitech has taken everything that made their speaker systems special and made it even better. How did they go about this? The answer is simple: by improving everything from the subwoofer to the satellites and braving new innovative territory such as real-time digital sound equalization. The result of their hard work is the Logitech Z-5500 Digital speaker system. This THX-certified, 505-watt 5.1 surround sound speaker system offers anything and everything you could possibly want out of your sound, plus a few things you didn't even know you needed. Once you plug in your PC, DVD player, music player, or video game console, you'll be interpreting sound in a whole new way!
Five-speaker systems are great for home theater—but they’re not so sensible for your laptop or PC entertainment. That’s why we developed Companion® 5 speakers. They’re designed for 5.1-encoded music, games and movies, using just two desktop speakers and a hideaway Acoustimass module . You’ll hear multichannel sound in a way that seems to surround you—without the clutter of five speakers. And setup is easy, with a single USB connection to your computer.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Logitech Z-5500 THX-Certified 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Speaker System
  • As I was unpacking the box, I was very impressed by the quality of the speakers and the size of the sub.
  • The included speaker wire is sufficient to place the speakers anywhere in a medium-size room.
  • The size of these and the sounds they produce are perfect.
  • It's perfect for most mid size rooms and computer systems.
  • I use this system in my living room as a compact sound system.
  • You might have a hard time finding a place for that beast to be.
Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System – Graphite/Silver
  • This sound system, especially for the size, is unbelievably fantastic.
  • The sound that comes from these small stylish speakers is wonderful for the size and they look incredible.
  • The speakers have a nice weight to them but are not at all bulky.
  • Bass is excellent for its size(enough for the system considering that its only 2 speakers)
  • The weighted control pod with a non-slip material on the bottom provides great tactile feel and ease of control.
  • The amount of metal and weight to them proved misleading, sadly.

What customers say about "Audio"
Logitech Z-5500 THX-Certified 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Speaker System
  • The sound is clean (distortion free), especially in the lower frequencies.
  • The bass is very full and deep which I love and all other frequencies are very clear.
  • The sound quality is excelent through the full frequency range.
  • This clarity is most notable in the mid to high frequency range.
  • I only wanted it for movie/music audio and this system has almost nothing in the mid frequency range.
Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System – Graphite/Silver
  • Coming to higher frequencies, the speakers are relatively OK.
  • I can hear every single snare and bass frequency.
  • Subwoofer provides excellent very low frequency sounds.
  • The audio imaging is remarkable, with separation of vocals, strings, woodwind, percussion, etc.
  • The ultra high frequency response is way too loud for me.
  • The volume adjustment is a little too sensitive as well, so be careful with it.

What customers say about "Features"
Logitech Z-5500 THX-Certified 5.1 Digital Surround Sound Speaker System
  • Its more than powerful enough for a average size home theater.
  • The amp has plenty of power, even at lower volumes.
  • I particularly like having a lighted power button, a really nice way to quickly turn the speakers on and off without having to search for the right button or menu option.
  • Sound quality for movie is not that demanding so this system with the powerful subwoofer can deliver enough theatre experience.
  • Subwoofer with enough power to flatten a building.
Bose Companion 5 Multimedia Speaker System – Graphite/Silver
  • These are defintely some powerful speakers.
  • The sound is bright and colorful with a lot of power behind it.
  • Awesome clarity, powerful enough for a party!!
  • The wired remote feature is rather useful as well and easy to get use to.
  • Wish there were more inputs for the 3.5mm jack, but I've bought a 3.5mm jack splitter so I can add additional sources.
