    Wake me up when they have a good 5.1 system like Logitech G51. Been using it for almost 8 or 9 years now with no problem . For my 3by3 room is more than I need

    Last month my Z-5500 had its 10th anniversary! Ok, the backlight stopped working a few years ago, but the rest is still completely fine! And if I compare it with my Yamaha HS8 they really sound quite nice for a PC-Speakersystem that had the pricetag of only one HS8! a kind of Z-7700 would be very cooool.... ;-)

    Used a Creative T20 II system for almost 7 years before it gave up. Best speakers I've owned! Great sound, build in bass (no sub) and played pretty loud. Nowadays it's gotta be RGB and gimmicks...sigh! The other Creative T range products has build in power saving (in EU) which cannot be turned off, absolutely terrible.

    I've been using an onkyo 7.1 av receiver and full range sony speakers and a sub for the past 15 years. They sound fantastic. The new stuff I speculate are for the new folk or older folk with broken gear. The older era speakers and amps are just fantastic and upgrades unlike a gpu or cpu cannot be justified for audio. Sound has reached its maximum progress.

    How did you manage the placement of 8 speakers? :) I remembered having a 5.1 system and although I had a corner table at that time, the left front/rear were not that far from each other :)

    So, basically a retry of the Philips AMBX range?

    I'd imagine most people wall mount them. I had my Z5500's wall mounted - typically you don't want speakers close to the wall due to SBIR but computer speakers aren't exactly amazing performers to begin with. I do miss my Z5500's though.

    I really have to laugh. Ive been waiting for a replacement for my Z-2300 2.1 sound system that I bought 2003, 200 watts, and 8" subwoofer and speakers so good, they cant even make them anymore. A used Z-2300 goes for 199.00. The only thing I don't have are the lights to distract me and cause some glare whilst I am playing PubG or CSGO. Oh well, we cant have everything.

    That's too expensive, here where i live i could get the Z906/Z-5500 with that money. I actually bought a Z906 last year for just 149,99 euro.

    EDIT: After a quick look i could find the Z2300 for 45 euro and one for 65 euro.

    More stupid lights!

    This is my favorite bit- "This combined with built-in Logitech Easy-Switch™ technology, enables you to switch seamlessly between any four connected devices such as a PC, smartphone and tablet, so you can listen to your favorite playlist off your phone while playing a PC game.". Because we can't leave a music player running in the background while playing a PC game lol.
    Anyway, the feature itself is nice. I wouldn't have minded BT connectivity on my z623 if I could use it to connect it to my PS4. I hate my TV's speakers :p

    240W, I do not think this adheres to DIN. I would believe that it is 240W PMPO (Power at which it burns).

    Yes, this is what I need from my speakers to produce ambient light. :D

    Wasn't this idea already tried on some TVs? I believe it was Sony or something who tried that and it was a giant failure on TV market.

    The biggest question is will I be able to sync that with my toiler RGB lighting?

    To say the truth , RGB is not distracting but it is a ... gimmick . I for one don't need it ! F it am a 35 year old person I DON'T CARE for lights , but I think the little ones will like all this S***. An all RGB computer :))
