Logitech has a history of pumping out better-than-average PC speakers at below-average prices, and the outfit's at it once more with the Z623 system. This simplistic setup is a 2.1 rig, complete with a pair of mobile satellites and a ported subwoofer. Logi's marketing this as the perfect setup for PC users and bedroom home theaters, and it's including RCA / 3.5mm input sockets along with an inbuilt headphone jack. All told, you're getting 200 watts (RMS) of power, and we're guessing that prominent THX logo factors into the $149.99 asking price. If that's still lower than you were expecting, you can fetch these for your own flat this September in the US and Europe. Oh, and there's a promo video just past the break... you know, if you're into that type of thing.

"Whether you're listening to rock music, watching a Steven Spielberg flick, or playing your favorite video game, the experience is always richer when you get engrossed in the audio," said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech's audio business unit. "That's why we built the Logitech Speaker System Z623 – so you can lose yourself in whatever you're into. For DVD aficionados, music enthusiasts and hardcore gamers, the Z623 system delivers powerful audio for your room. And with THX certification, you know you're getting the best."

And to put you in command, the integrated controls on the right speaker satellite let you dial the volume and bass up or down to customize your listening experience.

Logitech and THX – Delivering Pure Performance

To get you totally immersed in your audio, the Logitech Z623 speakers are THX Certified and professionally engineered to recreate the tonal balance of whatever you're listening to. To qualify for THX certification, the two-satellite-and-subwoofer Z623 speaker system has to meet strict performance standards. Logitech engineers have worked closely with THX, conducting more than 400 acoustic and electrical bench tests covering frequency response, power output, distortion, noise and overall performance. For the Logitech Z623 speakers, the result is front speakers that deliver dialogue and ambient sounds so clear it's like you're on the set of your favorite film. And you'll hear powerful, deep bass from your subwoofer as it recreates the roar of a jet engine or the sound of a collapsing bridge.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech Speaker System Z623 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in September for a suggested retail price of $149.99 (U.S.).
