Logitech Z906 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System Review
Logitech Z906 5.1 is for serious gamers that want the full immersive experience. It outputs a massive power. This means that you could use it for your console game play as well as your PC. This is the top of the line Logitech 5.1 range and definitely qualifies for the best 5.1 computer speakers’ category – and the best budget home theatre speakers on the market in 2017.
You get 6 speakers, a sub-woofer, a control centre and a remote control. They are all solid, heavy and well-built so can handle the volume that you can push through them. Like all 5.1 systems, setting up the Logitech Z906 5.1 takes a little time and planning. You need to lead wires from the control unit to the location of the speakers in the back corners of the room. It is always wise to take your time and lay these wires securely so that no one trips over them and hurts themselves or damages your system. The front and rear speakers are best placed at around 3 – 4 ft off the ground (about ear height when sitting). The sub-woofer should be front and centre – middle of your desk (or your TV if you are using it as a home theatre set) and at least 6” from the wall.
To get connected you plug devices into the appropriate connectors at the back of the module. There are 3.5mm jacks, RCA, six channel direct, digital coaxial and optical inputs which allow you to connect up to 6 devices simultaneously.
The control console allows you to set the volume individually for the front speakers, centre speaker, rear speaker and subwoofer. This helps you to define the soundstage for your room and get the sound just right for your sitting position. The console also makes it easy to switch between up to 6 connected devices at the touch of a button on the remote control. Go from gaming on your console to watching TV to chilling with Netflix all on the same sound system. The console also allows you to switch between 5.1 (3D) sound, 4.1 and 2.1 settings. The 2.1 setting is useful when your music just does not sound right on surround sound and you’d prefer a standard stereo output.
