Logitech z 680
Strengths: Fantastic sound Quality Professional Audio Looks Strong Bass Excellent Features
Weakness: None considering the fact that these are a set of multimedia speakers and not professional audio setup
These are one of the best set of speakers i have ever used. I own the latest Logitech Z5500 Digital and also owned the Klipsch. These speakers have excellent highs, mid range and the lower frequencies. The Control Pod is large but then consider the fact that it holds Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Prologic2 so i wouldnt really mind the size of the control pod when it has all the three formats, its...

These are one of the best set of speakers i have ever used. I own the latest Logitech Z5500 Digital and also owned the Klipsch.
These speakers have excellent highs, mid range and the lower frequencies. The Control Pod is large but then consider the fact that it holds Dolby Digital, DTS and Dolby Prologic2 so i wouldnt really mind the size of the control pod when it has all the three formats, its just matter of which format dvd you throw at it and it is ready to take it.
The Logitech Z 680 are just amazing for music. It is really clear and crisp for music reproduction.
For gaming these speakers just rock you apart, as it houses an 8" subwoofer, so you always feel in the middle of the action with all the rumbling and the bullets passing by your head.
Its in the movie department that these speakers really shine. I tried Gladiator, The Matrix, King Kong. I was amazed at the sound quality while watching a few scenes from these movies. If you have the right ambience in your room while watching movies you wont need any other speakers besides these....and trust me you would never need to go to a movie theater.
Finally i would say these are the speakers that you need to take your pc to the next the level. It just depends whether you want to spend the money into buying these babies or not. But if budget is not your concern then believe these are the only speakers you will ever need.
Finally "Hear it to Believe It"

To people that said .....IT hITS...
Strengths: good all around
Weakness: the amp in the back seem to rattle when at high bass. If you put pressure on the spot that is rattling you wont be able to here the rattle poor craftmanship ):
To people that said .....IT hITS to hhaaard. turn it around face the tunnle to the wall and it wont hit so hard.

I will never purchase another...
Strengths: fairly nice sound
Weakness: control pod broke and can't be fixed or replacement purchased
I will never purchase another Logitech product. I wasted much time with customer service in California, incurring long distance charges. Logitech's customer service is the worst I've encountered anywhere. Why would anyone want to buy a product that doesn't include service? My advice, DON'T BUY THESE OR ANY LOGITECH PRODUCT, PERIOD.

Strengths: Outstanding - one of the best speaker systems I've heard at ANY price.
Add my voice to the chorus... this is an outstanding speaker system, and absolutely the best bargain to be found. I have it hooked directly to the DVD with an optical input... the imaging is superb. It beats home theater systems I've heard costing 10X more. Logitech has a winner here... the only thing I've thought of that could make it even better would be on-screen display for use with the...
