Logitech Speaker System Z520 review

 

The Logitech Z520 speaker system is the flagship product of the company's four most recent PC speakers and the first of which to include "360-degree sound." In noncorporate jargon, that means each speaker has two tweeters mounted on the front and back...

Rear-facing tweeters provide pseudo surround sound; generous two-year warranty.

Pricey; hardwired cord; lacks RCA audio input, no bass or treble controls.

We'd have a much easier time recommending the Logitech Z520's average sound quality and lack of features if it didn't cost $130. We'd rather point you toward the Logitech Z523 system that offers best-in-class sound quality (and a subwoofer to boot) at...

Logitech Speaker System Z520

 

Logitech has emerged as a leader in the production of affordable, excellent-sounding PC and iPod speaker systems and docks. The latest stereo PC set from the company, the $129.99 Speaker System Z520, doesn't deliver pristine bass at high volumes like...

Clear, crisp audio output. Upward-angled for desktop listening. Dual direction drivers send sound to multiple areas of the room. Aux input auto-disables PC input when it's in use

Can't handle deep bass at high volumes without distortion. No remote control or Mute button. Speaker and audio cables are hardwired to unit

You might expect better bass at high volumes for $130, but Logitech's no-frills Speaker System Z520 does make a good office speaker set, offering crisp output at moderate volume levels.

Logitech Z-5 review

 

A couple of years ago Logitech brought out the Z-10s , an interesting set of PC speakers that featured USB connectivity and a digital readout on the front of one of the speakers. They looked good, sounded decent, and were cutting edge in their nod to...

Logitech's Z-5 PC speakers offer decent sound for a reasonable price; omnidirectional acoustics; USB connectivity obviates need for bulky power adapter; compatible with Mac and Windows PCs; included remote allows you to control playback of music from...

Little light on the bass; no volume control on speakers themselves.

While we weren't blown away by their sound, the Logitech Z-5s' combination of a simple, clean design, USB connectivity, and some basic remote operation make them a decent value in the sub-$100 PC speaker space.

Logitech Z-5

 

The bargain-priced Logitech Z-5 speaker set delivers crisp highs and comes with a remote that lets you control your music library. Just don't expect deep bass.

Quality audio performance for price. Extra drivers add space to stereo field. Remote controls iTunes and Windows Media Player.

Not a lot of bass response. Grilles attract dust and smudges.

Logitech Speaker System Z520

 

We haven't auditioned many cheap speaker systems lately. Why? Well, let's just say we don't enjoy subjecting our ears to the sonic equivalent of waterboarding. But Logitech has a knack for packing big sound into inexpensive boxes, so we agreed to...

Great sound for the money; very wide soundstage; attractive industrial design

Not enough bass punch for games or movies; hard-wired cables

The Z520’s integrated amp produces just 26 watts per channel, so don’t expect it to fill a large room with sound, especially if you’re throwing a party. With the volume control knob turned about three-quarters full, however, it did manage to fill our...

Logitech Z520 Desktop Computer Speakers

 

Most of the time, as general consumers, we like to think that the lower the price, the more attractive a product is. In the speaker world, things tend to be a different. As audiophiles, we often like to think that the higher the price, the more...

Review: Logitech Speaker System Z520

 

Logitech's latest two-piece computer speaker system offers convenient features and a unique design for listening from anywhere in the room.

The speakers' plastic cabinets sport a matte, dark-gray finish in back and on the sides, with a glossy-black front. Silver accents around the speaker drivers are visible only if you remove the system's black, metal grilles. Behind each grille sit a...

Review: Logitech Z-5 USB speakers look as good as they sound

 

Choosing the right PC speakers has always been about balancing price and size with sound quality. Most people start off with cheap 2.0 systems (that's two speakers and no subwoofer) but then they want better sound and move to 2.1 or 4.1 kits. These can...
