      Best Logitech Speakers

      Now that I share an office with my wife, 5.1 on my PC isn't really practical anymore. So I opted to go with a 2.1 system with a nice sub (aesthetic and overall perceived sound). I have owned two other Logitech 5.1 systems in the past. The older Logitech 5.1 system I have is the Z506 , and it has to be close to 4 or 5 years old. It still sounds pretty good (3.5/5). Before I bought the Z533 I purchased the store brand Insignia 2.1 that is/was $35. While the satellites sounded great to a certain volume, the bass was seriously lacking. The sub box looked nice, but it was weak. To compare, my roomba was running right near me and I could barely hear the bass on the Insignia. The Z533 has plenty of bass! When sitting at my disk I have it set to 1/3 max bass. I also really like the way the sub box looks with the Z533. I'm glad that it didn't have the copper colored Logitech badge on it that the store floor model had. The positioning with these speakers definitely matters. Make sure you have your sound set up properly as well (e.g. Spotify supports 24bit 48k Hz studio, don't have your speakers behind things, etc). Some games will only support 16bit 48k, etc. The only big issue(s) that I've really turned my head at with the Z533 after a solid day's use (on lots of different music, movies, and games) was once during a song with pretty distorted bass notes. The satellites just couldn't handle it and sounded pretty weird, thankfully I didn't have them very loud! The speakers do his, but it doesn't really bother me that much, when something is playing they sound great. They lose a star mainly because they just aren't 5-star speakers. I would say that these are 4.5 (Great) but not 5.0 (Excellent). I know if I cranked these speakers up they were tear themselves up pretty quickly, I'm sure there would be plenty of clipping. I was originally set on the Z323 (based on reviews and online appearance) when I first went in to exchange the Insignia set, however, while the satellites did look decent the sub was hilariously small, I swear it probably had a two or three inch cone in it. If you enjoy a good amount of bass, skip the cheaper sets with the tiny subs, you'll be glad that you did.

      Good sound for the price!

      These speakers have pretty good sound for the price. I've owned Logitech speakers for 15 years! My oldest set that I still use is the Logitech Z-2300. The Z-2300 is a system that needs to be heard in person to be appreciated, its audio quality is unlike any 2.1 system that's on the market today. Its bass response and clarity are just incredible even by todays standards.......soooo this Z533 has allot to live up to haha. While the Z533 isn't anywhere close to the Z-2300's performance, it does however sound pretty good. The satellite speakers could afford to have a bit less high end kick to them and a bit more mid range. The sub however is great, its not boomy sounding at all, in fact its perfect for me. It just puts out good bass. Just the right amount without being too much. Its not all perfect though, the control pod needs to have more resistance for the volume and bass controls. I feel they're too easy to move (the controls do have resistance to them but it needs more). The control pod on my Z-2300 system is great in this area to, it has enough resistance to move smoothly but not so much that its tough to move. I also don't like the fact that the control pod is hardwired to the sub, this is something that was a disappointment. It made setup a bit more difficult then it needed to be, setup took less then a few minutes but reaching down behind my desk to get the pod was a pain to do. So overall compared to the other options on the market the Z533 is a great product, its not too big and bulky and its not terrible sounding or to too bass heavy like so many other computer speakers are today. As I mentioned before the satellite speakers could do with less high end and more mid range, this is something I can fix in the equalizer, but its something to make note of if your heavy into music. For movies and games though it doesn't seem to be an issue for me.

      Excellent Computer / TV sound system

      I use a Logitech z2300 2.1 system (obsolete) with my main computer, an HP z620 with an ASUS Essence STX sound card, which prompted me to try other Logitech speaker / amplifier systems. The Logitech z533 replaces a Logitech z313 2.1 speaker system for a Samsung 4K 40" TV run by by an HP z420 workstation having a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card. The X-Fi to z533 amplifier connection is by good quality A/V RCA interconnects. The improvement was noticeable. The sound quality is very good, a substantial upgrade from the z313 and the wired remote (on/off, volume/ bass) is perfect for this use. The z313 developed a slight, permanent amplifier hum- even when not running- while the z533 is very quiet. The z533 is still compact enough for limited spaces. I place the satellite speakers on their sides under the Samsung monitor. A couple of small complaints: the large diameter volume control is too easy to accidentally adjust- it should have more friction and actually a separate on/off like the z313 is better- or have a mute button. Without a separate on/off, when muted for a phone call, I end up turning it off. The box for this heavy system needs to be heavier duty even when sent in an outer box. My first z533 (not from Best Buy) was damaged in shipping. The important z533 fault in my view is that the wiring for the z533 remote unit - as for the z313- is about 2' too short and permanently wired so as to make extension difficult. But, only the short remote wiring affects the use. I strongly recommend a good soundcard and reasonable interconnects to do justice to the z533. The z533 is highly recommended.

      Good sound for the price

      I am an OTR truck driver, i have a little flat screen tv with a dvd player & when you combine the noise of the air running, other drivers parking & the APU running, you cant hear jack from the tv speakers, even at maximum volume. I was looking for something that would overpower the other sounds & still sound decent so i gave this set a try. I was very surprised at the sound level & quality this little set has on my movies. Surprisingly it gives out a small theater like sound. The two satellite speakers are crisp & clear, even at high volumes & the sub responds to frequencies across the bored. Bass sounds clean, not distorted, even at high volumes. The three of them together sound really good, definitely a high quality sound at a decent price. Big stereo sound for a compact space. Im not saying its the best out there, ive heard better & have had better but for the price range I definitely recommend trying this set up before spending top dollar on a big name system.

      Excellent Speaker For The Price

      I have used these speakers for 3-4 months and I am quite satisifed with them. The fact that a (quality) subwoofer was included, as well as the 2 stereo speakers was a great value for the price. The volume knob was also a very nice addition! My only harp about the volume knob and the power cable is that they are not removable, which can cause some issues at times, and create some difficulty, but nothing really major. Overall, these are actually quite excellent quality for the price here, and these would definitely be the PC speakers to get (if you're not looking to spend $400 on speakers). The speakers sound amazing, have an adjustable base knob, and again, are a great value for the money. I had an issue with the left speaker being quite quieter than the right, is I was able to get in contact with Logitech, and I was able to get a full replacement without even having to send back the old one... very helpful customer support. I was considering leaving a 4 star review for the issues, but I gave it a 5 since I was able to easily get a replacement and work everything out. If you're looking for good PC speakers and you aren't looking to spend nearly $400, this is what you gotta get.

      Top notch for the price

      This is the third set of speakers from Logitech that I've owned. The first set I had were the X230's. They were pretty good for the price but lacked clarity and oomph. I bought another set of Z523 to replace those as they had "360 surround sound" and more power. I was very let down by that set. Constant problems, and weak sound. I decided to give Logitech another chance and replaced those with a set of these speakers. I am so glad I did. The sound from these is 10x better than the Z523 set and they're the same price. Go figure? For 100 bucks you'd be hard pressed to find a better set of speakers. The connections on this system are also miles better than their previous sets. Also, the bass settings on this are much better than previous sets where turning the bass past 10-15% made the sound rubbish. You get good bass from the satellites as opposed to just the sub. I would absolutely suggest these to anyone in market for new speakers. I plan on buying a second set for my TV as the sound from these blows away the sound of sound bars that cost $150+ Kudo's Logitech, good set of speakers.

      For a C-Note, Hard to Beat

      I hesitated on these speakers as they were to replace a Creative Labs set that cost almost twice as much 5 years ago. The Creatives had died, however, and my setup practically requires a control "pod" like this set has. My concerns were unfounded. Pulled the Creatives and set these in their place and boom! sound at least as good as the old ones. All while being better looking, taking up less space, and weighing less. Plus, the control pod not only has the volume control on it, but the bass, which on the old set required crawling under the desk to change. One small complaint: the control pod is permanently wired to the subwoofer, making routing it through all the cables under, behind, and on top of my desk more demanding than it needed to be. At a higher price I'd rate them a 4, but for a sub-$100 set, these are a five. Can't address reliability as I've had them running for less than a day. Time will tell.

      Even before I read the specs and reviews, I had already made up my mind that I was going to purchase the Logitech Z533 speakers based on its looks. After the initial purchase and receiving the item, I was amazed by the fast shipment and how well package it was. Got my speakers, plugged it in, turned it gradually up little by little and all I can say is, No Regrets. My roommates individually came out to tell me they were loud and how much was it haha. And well a week later, 2 of them bought a set of their own. Also wanted to thank best buy for the price adjustment, I originally ordered it for $107.99 total, told a friend about it 2 days later. He told me they were $80 online now, called up best buy real quick and they were able to refund me my $20 back. So yeah, I can say this purchase was worth every penny
