Solid speakers that do what they are meant to

05/11/2013I looked for a while to replace my 5.1 Headset. I have my computer in a 10x10 or so room. Although I have a very nice 7.1 Home Theater Setup in my [large] living room, I wasn't looking for anything special for my computer; just something to provide 5.1 sound at decent volume and reasonable sound quality so I could hear my games. I didn't want to put the 2 rear satellites on anything. The rear speakers had to be wall mountable and the setup had to come with its own amplifier. I had hoped to spend about $100 - $150.
I looked at several setups, particularly Creative's Inspire t6160 and t6300 speakers. Such speakers appeared to have decent volume at a reasonable price. However, none of these systems had rear mountable speakers.
I stumbled across the Z906's on the web. At 500 watts and a $300 price tag, these speakers were more than I wanted. However, without spending a whole lot more, I couldn't find any other speakers. I jumped on these speakers and am glad I did. These sound very good and the system has great volume (it's 500 watts, it better...#.
The bass and midrange are pretty good. The bass won't shake the house apart but it's beyond sufficient. The treble maybe a bit weak though. Overall, the sound sounds slightly flat. It's only slightly; I have a really nice sound system in my living room I enjoy listening too and am comparing this unit to. Most people may not notice the sound at all and would consider it great. The 5.1 sound separation on this unit is very good.
The amplifier has DTS and Dolby Digital Decoding built-in and some basic features. It can take stereo input and make it sound almost 5.1 as an example. It has 5 inputs #multiple optical, analog, stereo, etc.# and an aux. What this means is you can hook a TV/Blu-Ray, computer, console and other items up at the same time. One hole in the inputs maybe a lack of HDMI but that's no biggy.
A nice remote comes with the system allowing volume change as well as changing the input source.
The overall build quality of this system is very good as well; everything appears to be well made and gives me the impression it will last a while.
The only complaints I have are relatively minor. One item has to deal with speaker levels. This setup has the ability to adjust volume levels of speakers relative to each other but not all individual speakers. You can adjust the back speakers relative to the other speakers, but you can't adjust each back speaker individually, as an example.
The second complaint comes with the ability to wall mount the speakers. All speakers in this setup are wall mountable, except the subwoofer of course, which is nice. However, no mounting hardware comes with the system. All you get is a center screw hole dead center on the back of each speaker. But what's worse still is the documentation doesn't tell you what size bolts will go inside the holes nor is the weight of the speakers mentioned so you can pick appropriate wall mounts #I think they are 3.3 lbs but not sure). I purchased a set of Pinpoint's AM-30 Universal wall mounts. Luckily, these had a bolt which would fit the Logitech Speakers. However, I was a bit worried as I guessed these mounts would work. Logitech should have provided the specs on the speakers when it comes to mounting them.
Ultimately, this speaker system is a pretty good unit with a decent feature set, well made components, more than ample volume, and good to great but not fantastic sound. These are far better than cheap $100 systems but are still inexpensive enough not to break the bank. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this unit a 9.
