    Logitech announced the Z553, a 2.1-channel speaker system for desktops and TVs. Its design takes inspiration from cylinders, and feature a black+red color scheme. Its satellites measure 90 x 137 x 160 mm (HxDxW), and each use a pair of 52 mm drivers with output (per satellite) of 10W. Its cylindrical 168 x 175 x 381 mm sub-woofer packs a 178 mm driver with 20W output. The speakers support a frequency-response range of 55 - 17,000 Hz. A wired control pod gives you power, volume, and headset jacks. All cables are wired red to gel with the color scheme. Market availability is slated for October 26. It is expected to be priced around $150.

    Their highend speakers don't suck too much...:laugh:

    The Z5500's and Z906 are pretty good.

    Wouldn't it have been a idea if the cylinder design of the 2 speakers had a larger cylinder at the bottom-for a larger driver-and then a smaller cylinder on top-for a tweater?

    Seems a bit weird to have 2 drivers that are the same size without any tweater support on speakers like these.

    Logitech seem to lack that a lot, hence my choice of getting older Creative speakers to replace the flat Logitech X530

    Why would you compare their speakers to the audiophile world in the first place? :wtf: The price and quality ranges are both worlds apart...

    Depending on the initial responses, there is a chance that we should not bother Frederik with a piece of junk.

    kinda pointless since the speakers aren't even recessed into the cylinder to focus the sound, its PURELY look, and by the looks of it not an improvement at all....

    i need new speakers
