Logitech Z Cinema Home Theater Speaker Review

Logitech Z Cinema

It used to be that computers would be used for little more than text documents and spreadsheets, but more and more people are turning to their PCs for entertainment value as well. The trouble is that the speakers that are built into a laptop or come bundled with a desktop are usually pretty crappy. They get the sound out, but not in the same kind of fashion that you’d be able to enjoy through a proper home theatre system.

While a 5.1 speaker system is nice and all, not all of us want to deal with the messy wires and cables that would be involved in managing six speakers. Providing us with surround sound without the need for rear speakers is the Logitech Z Cinema Advanced Surround Sound System. It may look like your regular run-of-the-mill 2.1 speaker system, but those two satellites are actually capable of producing virtual surround sound via SRS TruSurround HD technology.
