Suited to enthusiasts who want to reconcile sound quality and spectacular output. Among our reservations are certain items missing from the Control Center and also the fact that the new version didn't choose to use two-way satellites. But as it stands this is a system we can ... recommend. quote

The Z-5500 is that rare breed of gadget that, even when an update does come down the pipeline, we would not have any regrets having purchased. As far as PC speaker setups go, you can’t do much better in terms of overall performance and feature set – go get you some.
