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.

Logitech Z523

 

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 Speaker System Z523

 

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

"Satellites and sub-woofer do not match."

 

I bought these for my daughter's PC. I really like Logitech hardware (I'm using their keyboards, mice, controllers like joystickes, gamepads and steering wheel) so I was expecting something that would sound as good as (or better than) the Creative...

Attractive. Easy setup.

Bass way to loud, combination missing a whole spectrum of frequencies, satellites sound like cheap dollar store speakers.

Good for Gaming and Music.

 

Got these for $100 Australian and I wasn't even planning on buying speakers, they just blew me away. Great bass, good mid for the price and very loud in medium sized rooms. Not sure about the 360 degree speakers but mine are up against the wall so I...

Good bass for music and games, especially first person shooters, plenty of strong explosions etc ; Great volume control ; Good Looking and very tidy with Velcro wire wraps which come in handy

Took a while to break them in, slightly tinny in the mid range

Teriffic sound, great bass, easy to handle

 

In all, great THX sound, fair price, just what I was looking for.

volume control within reach, bass adjustable, fair price

needs a small pedestal to accompany my screen on same height

Consumer review by:

Very good bass, but I didn't like the speakers.

 

This system proves the fact the if you decide to buy speakers, even if you hear a 100 good opinions, its all the same if you personally don't like it. I decided to upgrade from my Creative T20 Gigaworks which, are 2.0 and have almost no bass, but cost...

The Bass is not only power but quality as well, bass is not large at all, smooth volume control, no bright lights, whole system is indeed loud

Stereo speakers sound like your in a can or or in the next room, cables are hard-wired, the system is just a tad overpriced in my opinion
