Hey guys,

Its not like I need a 5.1 system right now, but I was just looking around and found an ad on classified for Logitech Z5500 ( USED one of course ). The price asked was 150 USD. I have only heard good things about Z5500 in past 10 years. But as this has been decade old system now, is it still worth it to buy at this price?
I have owned the Z5500 since 2009, and I use them every day. YES it is still worth it and $150 is an absolute steal. They are built like tanks, and everything works...the amp, the lights, etc. When used with a home theatre these babies will shake the walls with crystal clear sound.

I still have two pairs. One I got for $25 off Craigslist around 10 years ago (in use as I type this) that I upgraded the speakers to small Infinity's and another that died last year I'm pondering having repaired. I think I paid $100 for the second pair just before I bought the $25 ones. I still think they're the best computer speakers ever sold. I've flipped several pairs over the years locally and on Ebay too.

What difference does it make how old the thread is? What's the difference?

Possibly because this thread was started by a guy 2 years and 4 months ago asking if it was worth buying them, chance is he came to a decision way back then, the whole point in contributing to a thread is to offer advice to the member seeking it, if the thread was a "Z5500 owners club" then it would still be relevant of course.
