The Z-5500 has been, for quite a long time now, Logitech's flagship surround sound system, but it seems that the time has finally come for them to be decommissioned, the company introducing their proud successor, namely the Z906.
Without a doubt, the Z906 is a worthy successor to the acclaimed Z-5500, starting with the awesome audio power it can deliver, namely up to 500 watts (RMS), which means that, when pushed to the max, the Z906 will really provide music with a serious bang.
Plus, the new speaker system
from Logitech is also THX Certified, meaning that it will be able to create a very impressive home theater audio experience.
Similar to its predecessor, the Z906 audio system includes five satellite speakers accompanied by a ported subwoofer, capable of delivering a booming 165 watts of power, that will certainly get your walls shaking when the volume is pushed to the maximum.
Moreover, it's accompanied by a speaker connection wire, a 6-foot six-channel direct cable and a stackable control console, whose functions are, nevertheless, doubled by the wireless remote control also included in the sales package.
And since we're on the topic of conductivity, it's interesting to mention that the Z906 supports the simultaneous connection of multiple (well, up to six) audio devices, including here TVs, gaming consoles, Blu-ray players and set-top boxes, etc. (not to mention computers, of course).
The new audio systems also delivers onboard 5.1 digital decoding, that will particularly come in handy when the playback of Dolby digital or DTS encoded tracks is required.
Last, but certainly not least, we'll have to mention that Logitech's Surround Sound Speakers Z906 is actually a very affordable product, given the features it provides, since it will retail for US$349.99 (or the equivalent in Euro) across the US and European markets, starting from March 2011.
