Hear Every Detail: Logitech Unveils Theater-Quality Surround Sound Speakers

So you can hear every detail in your movies, games and music, today Logitech unveiled the Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906. Delivering 500 watts (RMS) of power, the Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906 are THX Certified, creating a theater-quality audio experience in your living room.

“We’re delighted to offer consumers a successor to the highly acclaimed Logitech Z-5500 Digital 5.1 Speaker System,” said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s audio business unit. “The Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906 are the logical evolution of surround sound speakers, and we’re confident they will become an indispensable part of the living room.”
Powerful Audio — 500 Watt, THX-Certified Speakers
The Logitech Surround Sound Speakers offer 500 watts (RMS) of power, delivering thunderous audio that can shake your house. Logitech’s newest speakers have met strict performance standards to achieve THX certification — so you can be sure that your entertainment will sound the way it was meant to.

For your Dolby digital or DTS encoded soundtracks, onboard 5.1 digital decoding enables detailed surround sound — from the roar of the crowd to the footsteps right behind you. If you love house-shaking bass, the ported, side-firing subwoofer delivers 165 watts of pure, distortion-free bass. And the Logitech Surround Sound Speakers convert two-channel stereo into an immersive surround sound experience.

Designed for the Living Room — Connect Up to Six Audio Devices
The Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906 not only sound good, they are designed to fit into your existing living room setup. You can connect up to six audio devices simultaneously — including your TV, DVD, DVR, Blu-Ray player, Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, Wii, iPod and even your PC or Mac laptop. And with its easy-to-read display and easy-to-stack design, the control console looks good with your home-entertainment system.

For your convenience, a wireless remote lets you control your listening experience without ever getting off the couch. And, wall-mountable satellites turn any room into a home theater.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906 are expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in March 2011 for a suggested retail price of $349.99 (U.S.). Visit www.logitech.com or our blog for more information.

Well.. the thing is that this caters to a specific market.
The vast majority of PC users have no need for, or even an idea about, true audio fidelity as such, nor does it really matter.
When comparing apples to apples, Logitech has done quite a good job for what's on offer.
Of course home Hi-Fi will be better, but at what price point do you wish to compare?
A friend of mine in the USA spend HUGE amounts of money on getting the best he could get at the time, including speakers with a nearly linear response from 20-20000Hz.
Things is.. those speakers alone cost him US$250K each.. (yes.. he's a rich bastard!).
However.. his system clarity was defeated by a $250 Technics amp, mated to a $500 pair of Beyerdynamic headphones.
It's horses for courses really ;)

EDIT: Mussels: JB HiFi sells some of these Onkyo setups. More specialised audio places can probably give you a better range of these products ;)
LOL @ your friend no offense but because the price is sky high don't mean it's better. But obviously he don't know what he is buying and just goes by a price tag nor did any research in what he is buying..

IF i had that kind of money i would not spend that much there is no need and secondly i be able to venture out to test more hardware and speakers to see if there to my liking as there is so many different sound quality's out there which match different types of music\usages.

And as for Technics like what the hell there a great brand but still they make different sounding amps and i have had ones in the past that were more forceful were the sound is forced to you which in turn is bad for music by Bob Marley say then i have more of a ladeback sound from there stuff too which work better with said music.
