Logitech today unveiled the next-generation Logitech Z506 Surround 5.1 Sound Speaker System, allowing users to connect nearly any entertainment device, including a PC, PLAYSTATION3 (PS3), Xbox 360, Wii, iPod or a DVD player.
The Logitech Z506 Surround Sound Speakers are easy to setup; all of the cables are colour coded and the system includes an accessory cable for sound cards and music players.
For gamers, one can connect the Logitech Z506 Surround Sound Speakers directly to the game console’s existing RCA cable. In addition, the Logitech Z506 Surround Sound Speakers also support two devices connected simultaneously — for example, a game console and a digital music player.
“After listening to our customers extensively, it was clear that they wanted a speaker system designed for the living room,” said Romain Cholat, VP Large Markets, Logitech Europe. “The Z506 speaker can support nearly any home-entertainment configuration. Now, getting into whatever entertainment you love is a snap, thanks to the bold sound of the Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z506.”
Featuring 3D Stereo surround sound, the Logitech Z506 Surround Sound Speaker System can convert two-channel stereo into an immersive surround sound experience — enveloping users in the action of their favourite movies or delivering a competitive advantage in games in which one need to hear the enemy sneaking from behind.
Offering 75 watts (RMS) of power, Logitech Z506 Surround Sound Speakers can fill the room with sound — and even rattle a few windows. The ported, down-firing subwoofer delivers deep bass that brings your music, movies and games to life.
In addition, Logitech Z506 Surround Sound Speakers also features dedicated bass control, and include a headphone jack for private or late-night listening.
The Logitech Z506 surround speakers can support nearly any home-entertainment configuration, letting users quickly connect to a game console using an RCA connection, a PC through its sound card, or a digital music player using the 3.5mm input.
