Article Publish Date:
I always thought (still do) that being a hardcore gamer ment having a very good, if not the best graphics card around, a large TFT screen, a very good soundcard and a very good set of speakers. With this in mind i got my first 5.1 surround system tailored for my PC back in 1998 when the first DVD players got released as well. Now after 12 years i have used a total of 7 surround sound systems two of which were all-in-one sets manufactured by legendary companies in the field such as Creative Labs (Digital 5700) and Logitech (Z-5500). Today we will be taking a look at such a surround system which as the title clearly states is the latest Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906.
Logitech was founded in 1981 at Apples, Switzerland and the first device they conjured was the mouse which provided a more intuitive way of interacting with computers. Since those early days they have expanded their expertise in product design beyond the computer mouse, with a broad portfolio of interface devices that are the “last inch” between you and your computer or your console game, digital music or home-entertainment system. With products sold in almost every country in the world, Logitech’s leadership in innovation now encompasses a wide variety of personal peripherals (both cordless and corded), with special emphasis on products for PC navigation, gaming, Internet communications, digital music and home-entertainment control. For each of their product categories they study how our customers use their digital devices and their our designers and engineers set their sights on how they can create a better experience with those devices – richer, more comfortable, more fun, more productive, more convenient, more delightful. Focused on innovation and quality, Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world.
The Z-5500 5.1 surround system by Logitech has been around for over 6 years during which not only did it win countless awards around the globe but it also became the best-selling unit of its kind and so it was quite natural for Logitech to announce its successor. This was expected by many people around the world for the past 2 years and finally a few months ago Logitech announced the availability of the Z906 surround speaker system. Much like its predecessor the Z906 system features a massive total of 500RMS of power, THX certification and 6 audio outputs for you to connect all your devices on. However compared to the Z-5500 the Z906 set does come with a smaller subwoofer and somewhat less impressive materials used. But let's take a closer look to see exactly what i mean.
