“Surround sound system” and “affordable” aren’t words you often see together, but with the Z606 Logitech has put immersive audio within grasp of modest budgets. The Bluetooth-enabled 5.1 system delivers 160 watts of peak power and can pump out sound from TVs, computers, mobile devices, Blu-ray/DVD players, and video game consoles. It’s not audiophile quality—and for just $130 you wouldn’t expect it to be—but it’s a low-risk upgrade from your devices’ native speakers.
The satellite speakers measure 7.01 x 4.33 x 3.42 inches, and weigh a pound apiece. Each has a 2.5-inch driver and bass port. Visually, they’re identical save for the color and lengths of their attached speaker wires. The wires for the center and two front channel speakers are 7 feet long, while the rear-channel wires stretch 20 feet. All are color coded to indicate where they connect to the back of the subwoofer. Thought the satellites are designed to stand upright, they each have a hole in the back for wall mounting.
