"Impressive system - with an extra surprise"4.5 starson by sinx
Pros: Crisp, loud, simple, good surround sound
Cons: Sub almost too powerful
Summary: Just bought the z-5500's, had resigned myself to the hard wired speaker option. I would have got the 680's (as they used exposed wire connections) but I wanted the most recent speakers.
Imagine my surprise when I opened the box and discovered that the wiring for speakers now uses exposed wire, not the RCA hardwired option that is still in the specs and has been mentioned previously here.
I'm in Australia and rang Logitech tech support to see what they knew. They said they'd heard about it but hadn't actually seen any of the upgraded sets. They hadn't even heard anything from Logitech head office about it.
Anyway, very happy with this surprise!
Oh, and the speakers themselves are extremely impressive. No regrets about making this purchase!!
The sub is almost too strong (can always reduce lower the strength), I've got a solid timber desk and I'm worried about the bass rumbling it apart (seriously)!
