Logitech Speaker System Z523

 

Harnessing the power of deep bass, without spoiling the sound with distortion has always been one of Logitech's strengths—in its more expensive speaker sets, that is. In the company's lower-priced options, however, like the $99.99 (direct) Z523 2.1 PC...

Multi-directional speakers fill a room with sound. Three inputs. Powerful subwoofer. Adjustable bass level

Speakers can sound a bit too bright, and occasionally tinny. Cables are hard-wired, can't be replaced without repair. No remote control

The $100 Logitech Z523 is a well-designed high-quality 2.1 PC speaker set that can fill a room with sound, and comes with the convenience of multiple inputs.

Have you ever wondered why more audio companies aren't building PC speakers these days? Listen to Logitech's Z523 speaker system and you'll ask a second question that handily explains the first: How in the world can any company manufacture powered...

Excellent sound ; Great bass output ; Inputs for three stereo sources ; Attractive ; Strong price/performance ratio

Hard-wired cables ; Harsh highs nearing full volume ; Plastic satellite cabinets ; Won’t fill a large room

We never expected speakers this cheap—okay, inexpensive—to sound this good.

Logitech's Z523 Speaker system is one of four models in the company's 2009-2010 PC-speaker line that features a separate subwoofer. Though the Z523 carries a list price of $99, it sells online for $79, which makes it quite affordable--and a relatively...

Good sound for the money; strong bass; good connectivity options; volume and bass controls.

Though its sound quality doesn't eclipse more expensive PC speakers, the Logitech Z523 is one of the best speaker-plus-subwoofer systems in its price class.

While it won't blow you away with its sound quality, if you're looking for an affordable PC speaker-plus-subwoofer system, the Z523 is one of the best speaker systems in its price class.

Best computer speakers under $100

 

The Logitech Z523 comes more highly recommended than any other under-$100 PC speaker system. The 5.25-inch subwoofer impresses testers with distortion-free bass at all but the loudest volume. The curvy piano-black satellite speakers can sound a little...

Powerful bass, affordable price, multi-directional speakers, lots of connection options

High ranges can sound harsh or tinny, no remote, permanently attached speaker wires

Logitech Z523 review

 

The Logitech Z523 is a nicely designed 2.1 PC speaker system. The build quality of the speaker is not top notch but just above average. The system has a claimed frequency response of 35Hz to 20KHz. The total system output is rated at 40 watts RMS with...

Good looking set of 2.1 PC speaker with multiple inputs and nice design but the Logitech Z523's mediocre sound does not justify its price tag.

Logitech Speaker System Z523 review

 

While the Logitech Speaker System Z523 won't blow you away with its sound quality, it's a fairly affordable speakers-plus-subwoofer system, and one of the best in its price range

Good sound quality for the money ; Strong bass performance ; Plenty of connectivity options ; Handy volume and bass controls

Audio could be more detailed and clear

In terms of shortcomings, the Speaker System Z523 just doesn't offer all that much in the way of audio detail and clarity. This little system sounds good for the money and delivers ample bass, but don't expect high-end acoustics

Logitech Speaker System Z523 review

 

Most speakers sound best when you're directly in front of them.

Logitech's Z523 speakers sound great but they're only worth the expense in certain situations.

Logitech Z523

 

The Logitech Z523's satellites, with their unique speaker design, promised to bring 360 degree sound! But just how good are they?

Good looks ; Multiple audio inputs ; Easy to use

Poor sound quality ; Satellites glossy finish attracts fingerprints ; Expensive

Good looking set of 2.1 PC speaker with multiple inputs and nice design but its mediocre sound does not justify its price tag.

Logitech Z523 2.1 speakers review

 

A small set of no nonsense speakers that keep costs down by providing you with the basics

This review might carry an overly pessimistic tone which belies the worth of this system. Any of the above issues aren’t uncommon in this price bracket, and there are far worse 2.1 systems available for the same money.

Good looks and unique speaker design for 360-degree sound.

Attractive design, convenient placement of volume controls, good connectivity options, decent performance while gaming

Lack of clarity from satellite speakers, weak treble, speakers on the back are wasted, boomy bass, bit expensive
