    Are these THX certified? They look very familiar.

      Doesn't really matter, as they all sound the same. Gotta hate that dull and boring "Logitech sound" with the muddy, boomy bass and absolutely no treble.

        muddy, boomy bass and absolutely no treble.

        Woah, I thought that only my pair of Logitech speakers was like that! Is it common (not commond to me!) knowledge that all Logitech speakers are like that?

          They’re just cheap. Five speakers and a sub for that price is fantastic when you think about it. I had a set of these when I was younger and they’re great value, but that’s about all.

        Heyy… Some of us enjoy the boomy bass every now and then. Comes in handy when you want to annoy the neighbours. 😂

        Can you get around this to a large extent with creating a custom EQ profile?

      You'd need to look at the Z906 for THX - but that's about 5x the price.

      That sad, I'm still rocking my ~15 year old Logitech Z-5500 THX system here… one of the best purchases I've ever made.

      •  

        I'm still running my Z-5400s from yonks back. Went from being my bedroom desk speakers to make-do living room surround speakers after moving out.
        These look somewhat improved as they have tweeters; visually at least.

        Long live the Z-5500!

        Ah the Z-5500, I loved it so much but sadly my control pod died last year. Moved onto headphones which sounds better for music, but still missing the surround sound when I play movies.

        • +1 vote

          Can't you find the control pod on ebay or not worth it?

          •  

            @CVonC: There were conflicting opinions as to whether control pods needed to match the PID or else it didnt work and I didn't want to experiment on my system. Besides, I find ebay a tad sketchy so I typically use it for purchases below $50. Although I've been looking into AV receivers recently and contemplating getting one as they will give me the ability to upgrade to better speakers later on.

      •  

        Love my 5500! I rue the day they decide to cark it. The surround sound is so good. They cost me $150 10 years ago at auction. Soooooooo worth it!

      •  

        Z5500 owner here too, bought a set 4 years ago on Gumtree for 150. Then bought another set for 100, replaced the PID. Recently just bought a USB sound card so now I can hook it up with just a single Optical cable. So so good.

      I can only speak for the z5500. Is it the best speaker out there? No. But I picked it up for around $400 15 years ago - which at the time represented exceptional bang for buck. I'll definitely upgrade to something better when they die, but until then, they're doing just fine.

      I love audiosnobs - you all sound so damned boring and no one cares that you care that much about audio. Some people don't want to spend thousands of dollars on audio equipment, bruv.

    Bought the Creative SBS X Kratos S5 in the previous CA 20% deal, coupled with the 10% off eBay vouchers.

    Pretty decent speakers.

    Anyone have any speaker recommendations for a TV? Not something that’s super amazing and expensive, just something decent though

    seeing a lot of complaints here, but there is a difference with a budget set of speakers and top of the line speakers. you cant expect a Ferrari with a skateboard budget. you pay for what you get.

    • +6 votes

      It's even worse than that. It's more like some rich old man driving past a park in his Ferrari and telling the kids on bicycles about how much better his wheels are than theirs and that they wasted their money on an inferior solution.

      For $63 you should be pretty stoked with these.

  •  

    Good deal even though i bought these for same price over 5 years ago. Anyone know how to convert these into 5.1 dolby?

  •  

    i am very happy with mine.

    I can't believe they were only $79 at full price. I've always liked Logitech.

    Good price for a decent quality basic set. I've been happy with petty much all the Logitech devices I've owned over the decades. Good all round value.

    my logitech only stopped working because the mouse teared the wires apart :(

    Those still using the Z-5500, how are you getting Dolby Digital Plus from Netflix? As the Z-5500 it's only compatible with the old Dolby Digital codec, which has much lower codec (up to 10 times lower than DD+ in fact).

    I loved mine to bits after getting it second hand a few years ago but have since replaced it with a 5.1 Sony setup to get the most out of Netflix soundtrack. I love Sony's wireless subwoofer and rear surrounds, Dolby Atmos compatibility, ARC and 4k pass-through, and the built-in Chromecast Audio connectivity, but the THX-certified Logitech had a certain X-factor to the sound that I haven't heard even from a modern $1000-$1500 all-in-one audio system.

    So, if there is some sort of a hack to take full advantage of these great speakers in a modern setup, I may be able to find some use for it yet. Otherwise, I'm inclined to clear out the space it's taking up in my garage.

      You can't get DD+ with z5500.

      I have mine hooked up to a projector in my bedroom, connected on Analogue (3 cables) to the external USB sound card to my laptop and find that the sound quality is better compared to using just the Optical cable. Even with Dolby Digital Live turned on, it doesn't seem to be as good. Still very happy with the sound quality overall.

      On an unrelated note, I do find that with my Samsung N950 soundbar on Netflix's Dolby Atmos there's quite a bit more clarity and the sound bouncing around the room is really quite special. Just wish the subwoofer had a bit more depth like the z5500.

      •  

        Thanks for that. Analog will always sound better than optical for surround, as optical is only capable of Dolby Digital maximum - i.e. the 320 kbps bitrate is shared across all 6 channels, i.e. highly compressed.

        Just wish the subwoofer had a bit more depth like the z5500

        I know what you mean - I'm also very happy with my Dolby Atmos Sony 5.1 setup (HT-Z9RF), which is also surprisingly great for music. But it still lacks that oomph of the 5500. I did get the upfiring Sony CT-HT790 for the bedroom as well, with the optional wireless surrounds, to replace the 5500, as I have no interest of using a laptop + external soundcard to drive my setup.

        Sounds like I may have to put up the 5500 for the next hard rubbish collection.
