Logitech intros $350 Surround Sound Speakers Z906, Black Eyed Peas still capable of ruining them
It's not often we see a single product grace these pages and then remain "current" for half a dozen years, but the successor to Logitech's heralded Z-5500 speaker set is just now touching down. Logi's Surround Sound Speakers Z906 offer 5.1 channels of oomph, a 500-watt (RMS) amplifier, digital / analog inputs, yet another remote to add to your (prayerfully dwindling) collection and a dedicated control console. This particular set is both ready and willing to sync up with a cornucopia of sources -- everything from your TV to your game console should feel right at home. Head on past the break for the full specifications list, and if you're game, you can exchange $349.99 (or £329) for a set later this month.

Update: Turns out the MSRP on these is $399, not $349 as we were originally told.
