Logitech Z506 Surround Sound Speakers/Surround Sound System, Amazing speakers for such a low price!

Excellent sound quality at an affordable price. After a lot of looking around online, and reading other people’s reviews of the logitech z506 surround sound speakers and logitech z-906 5. 1 surround sound speakers, i opted for the z506. For £60 they are a brilliant set of speakers and i very happy with my decision. First of all, amazon’s service is 2nd to none, and the speakers arrived promptly a couple of days after ordering. I had also ordered a ross phsmj1-rs 1m rca to 3. 5mm stereo jack lead to use the stereo input with my iphone. The red/white stereo input on the subwoofer actually mimics 5. 1 surround sound using a 3d sound effect. However, it is very good and the quality is truly excellent.

Center speaker and right speaker and it has been working great with me via my usb sound card. I bought this with the intention of using it for 5. 1 surround sound, however my room did not support the layout and windows 7 had trouble recognizing the speakers in 5. 1 so i settled with just using the subwoofer, left speaker, center speaker and right speaker and it has been working great with me via my usb sound card. Awesome bass and sound quality.

“An extremely decent set of speakers at a very fair price: Logitech Z506 speakers review, 5.1 on the cheap, My Logitech Z506 Review!”

Excellent sound quality at an affordable price. After a lot of looking around online, and reading other people’s reviews of the logitech z506 surround sound speakers and logitech z-906 5. 1 surround sound speakers, i opted for the z506. For £60 they are a brilliant set of speakers and i very happy with my decision. First of all, amazon’s service is 2nd to none, and the speakers arrived promptly a couple of days after ordering. I had also ordered a ross phsmj1-rs 1m rca to 3. 5mm stereo jack lead to use the stereo input with my iphone. The red/white stereo input on the subwoofer actually mimics 5. 1 surround sound using a 3d sound effect. However, it is very good and the quality is truly excellent.

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. , 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 bassnow 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 ->soundthen go down to (speakers high definition device) ->right click then ‘configure speakers’. 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.

I also own the x540 which is the predecessor of this system so it was good to compare new with old. 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. 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 highly recommend these speakers. 1 surround sound speakers but i was surprised that you can set as 7. I was playing metallica’s for whom the bell tolls and just cranked up the volume just a notch so that the volume marker pointed towards the led light on speaker and also turned up the bass on subwoofer and boy did the floor rumble. I highly recommend these speakers. Ps make sure the mrs’ and kids aren’t home when playing on high volume.

Finaly a decent 5. 1 system. I bought these after purchasing a very dodgy set of creative inspire t6160 for my ps3. I very quickly realised i’d been miss informed about this products compatibilty and performance in relation to games console. So after some extensive research on the internet i came across the logitech z506 speakers. After reading a lot of comments from your usual ‘audiophials’saying how you just couldnt get 5. 1 3d sound from anything under £250, i put it to them to buy a set of these and hook them to a console through an analogue cable and hear the results for themselves. I set them up with a little trepidation after my previous experience but i need’nt of worried. I tested them with the game skyrim first, wow.The drums playing on the start up screen were immense, i actualy felt the ‘whoomph’ of air come from the sound tube on the subwoofer, delivering a deep throaty bass tone.

Ok until randomly starts being tempremental. . After 4 months, for no apparent reason, the rear connectors on the sub for front, and sub, have become tempramental, even though the unit has sat undisturbed all this time. Wiggle cables about a bit, find the spot, works again. So some soldering inside is duff. Sound quality is ok, for a small room with a single pc it is good enough for music or films. Don’t expect home-cinema hi-fi quality. These are small and basic speakerssub is ok, not as heavy as i would like, ok at low volume for films. Just don’t expect to blam out those tunes.

First off i would like to say that this speaker system is a bargain. At just shy of £70 it is easily the best value for money speaker set i could find. Only took about 15 minutes to set up. Packaging was great, very safe. Bass is aswesome, very deep and very rich. I would thoroughly recommend buying these for any wanting to fill a room with sound and get plenty of bass for those cinema moments. Playing battlefield 3 on these is just incredible.

Cracking set of speakers for the price. Bought these to use with my desktop pc, they replaced a set of creatives that had developed a continuous buzz that persisted for months after several years of problem free service. Despite thorough investigations the creative buzzing issue could not be resolved and they were ditched. Love these speakers, great sound and tone, haven’t had the volume control past the halfway point as yet and they’re more than adequate for purpose and size of room they’re in. I will say that i do miss the remote that my creatives had (even though it was only a wired remote) i miss not just being able to move my fingers a few inches to instantly adjust the volume and now either have to open up the pc volume control settings, use the keyboard controls or stand up (god forbid) to adjust the dial on the front right speaker. What i don’t miss are flimsy speaker stands, these don’t have stands, except the centre speaker, which has some flip-out stand located in the base which appears as though it’s for mounting the speaker onto a tv/monitor if desired. I find the the all in one design of these speakers much more sturdy and stable than having the speakers mounted on what are often flimsy and awkward stands. I have also noticed the speakers are available to purchase seperately, should i accidentially drop and break one for example. I did have to spend a few quid on a couple of extension cables for the rear speakers, as with most sets similar to these, the ones supplied are always too short to position the rear speakers suitably.

Best value for money item i’ve bought on amazon. . I bought these with lightning deal at £44. 99 so i’m extra extra happy. They’re definitely worth more for the quality there offering. I don’t use the speakers for movies as they’re connected to my pc, not tv, however a friend uses them mainly for movies and that’s where i was first impressed by them. I personally use it for music and gaming. I like the clear, strong and adjustable bass in these. It’s so pleasant to listen to my favourite songs. They work fine on battlefield 4. I can hear the sound moving from one speaker to another when i’m turning around.

An extremely decent set of speakers at a very fair price: logitech z506 speakers review. >overviewthe 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. >specificsthe 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. 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.

Very good but not amazing. . Bought to replace a 10 year old set of dell speakers that wouldn’t stop buzzing. Easy to set up (although there weren’t any instructions anywhere in the box) and sounds good. I use it in my study (a small 10ft x 9ft) and i was still limited with placement of the speakers given the length of the speaker cables. I’ll buy extensions but slightly annoying. The sound is good/very good but not amazing. You couldn’t ask for better clarity but i was looking to buy another set for the living room if they were impressive but they just aren’t loud enough. The other really annoying thing about them is they don’t work immediately once you hit play on an itunes track. There is a delay of anything from 10 to 30 seconds before they all of a sudden come on. This doesn’t happen every time and once they’re on, they stay on but it does bug you.

The best speakers for the price. For this price range, these are truly the best speakers you can get. Perfect for music listening or making movies come alive. It’s loud, very loud with 75 watts of power, i never really needed to use more than 30-40% of its total volume. Sometimes when the bass is too overpowering you can easily turn it down via a knob found on the woofer. The right speaker has an easy access volume knob so you don’t have to constantly be messing around with the volume settings on the computer. As well as a headphone port. The sound quality is very good, no distortion even at very high volume. You can also buy the bluetooth audio adapter from logitech to make these speakers wireless, having this eliminates the need to have the aux connected from the woofer to your media device. The long aux cable is supplied in the box, but if you care about your cable management going wireless is the best option.

Sexy sounds from the people at logitech. If you’ve read my previous reviews about audio technology, you’ll understand that i’m a huge critic when it comes to sound quality. Keep this in mind as you read this. First off, the build quality is extremely good. The speakers are light for what they are, but they are very strong and well-built, especially when i ‘pump up the volume’ and want to live my inner bass god. There’s no rattle and all speakers have a mesh over them to protect them from dust and other annoyances. Secondly, the sound quality was completely beyond what i expected for something that cost around £50. Obviously it took a little bit of fiddling to get everything absolutely perfect (remember i desire perfection with audio) but out of the box there really wasn’t anything to complain about. Thirdly, the expansion capabilities.

Amazing speakers for such a low price. Love the speakers, love the price. Bought as a warehouse deal, but they were pretty much brand new. The 2 rear speakers and the center one were actually wrapped up in a factory packaging and no marks/scuffs or any of the other speakers/sub. There was 3mm to 3mm cable missing, but that is not a massive issue as you want to connect these as a multi channel anyway. Speakers are very punchy and the bass needs to be toned down for a clearer sound. I’d say they play back all the ranges nicely and the digital surround option is amazing for movies and games. Not happy with the driver though, he left a big box just on my doorstep for anyone to just take it as they wish and it says ‘signed by customer’ as a delivery note , what the hell.

Great performance for the price. . Excellent value for money with good quality sound. Enough punch at 75watts for my computer room. The only irksome quirk is that the on/off and volume control is on the right hand speaker. This makes it a bit restrictive for placement of the speakers, as it needs to be within easy reach. It would have been better to have the volume controls on the centre speaker which you usually have closest to the computer and screen. No complaints otherwise, very happy with the performance. Got a problem with the back rear left speaker screaming like a very loud buzz saw every time there is a sound output through it.

Sound cuts out after 2 hours of use everytime. . I have now had these speakers for a few weeks and everytime i have used these these speakers and even on the same day that i got them, the speakers just cut out after 2 hours. I don’t know if this might be a power safety mechanism or what, but i just have to keep getting after every 2 hours to turn it off and on again to get the sound back. Rear speakers are ok, but its the front, left and right speakers that are great for sound.

I also own the x540 which is the predecessor of this system so it was good to compare new with old. 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.

Sound quality is good, speakers are nice and stylish. They may look small but pack quite a power. Bass is pretty good for the small woofer. Pros:-cheap (when i bought it)-stylish-excellent sound quality, even at high volume-easy to install and configure-front speaker can clip to lcd monitors easy-excellent for gaming and moviescons:- the matrix that forces stereo on all 5 speakers does not like integrated sound cards. That means you will most likely have bad output on the rear speakers (distorted sound, lower volume). Don’t fear they are not broken. Easy fix, get a octone y-jack 2 x 3. 5mm stereo splitter – headphone splitter jack for 1 pound and do this to force good stereo on all 5 speakers: the green and black lines go into the splitter, the splitter goes into the green jack of the audio card, and the center yellow wire goes into the yellow/black jack of your audio card (for me the yellow jack does not work but the black ones does the job)-as said, needs separated (good quality) sound card to have it working perfectly.

Even my neighbours who love the sound of hardcore drum and bass at 3. Still going strong providing music to the masses. Even my neighbours who love the sound of hardcore drum and bass at 3 in the morning love them. They even bang along to the beat on the walls although they cant keep time very wellsound quality is great and bass is booming if you want it to be.
