I was really pumped about getting this system and when I finally did, it was like an early Christmas gift from myself to myself. So I tried it out for less than one day and I will admit, the sound quality is quite good. But I have one major caveat for anyone reading this and considering purchasing the Z-5500's. Do not under any circumstances, detach the speaker stand from the satellite. If you do, you will not be able to reattach the stand with the same screw and consequently the stand will be useless. I did this because I wanted to wall mount the stand and attach the speaker afterwards. Of course, the Logitech technical writer was too asinine to include the same warning in the documentation. And for any of you wiseacres who think I was dumb to remove the stand in the first place, I had the Z-680's, the predecessor, and I had no problems resecuring the speaker to the stand once it was wall-mounted. In case you didn't know it, the speaker table stand doubles as a wall mount bracket. As soon as I realized what had happened, I called Logitech the next morning and told them my story fully expecting they would placate my concerns by sending me a replacement speaker. WRONG! They told me, "Sorry there's nothing we can do, by removing the stand you damage the speaker and void the warranty."

I bought these instead of the Klipsch 5.1's and Im pretty happy with them. Treble is weak but can be pretty much corrected if you can use an equalizer, but not perfectly. If you can spend the money get the Klipsch model, they do have better sound if you care at all about audio quality. However I got these for about $150 less than the Klipschs' which makes the difference in quality not worth spending that much more. These can get pretty loud and stay clear but you should connect through digital (coax or optical) instead of the provided cable, especially for DVDs. Basically these are just as good as the Klipsch for a basic user but anyone who listens to loud music or watches DVDs and wants the best, I dont think these are it. But theyre good for $100+ less.

WOW!

by Scott on 11/3/2005

These speakers are INSANE! I got them for $230...cmon now...that is ridiculous! They are everything you've heard and more. I ordered these babies last Friday, it is now Thursday and have them already! They were shipped and delivered in one day?! Who's heard of that?! And on top of being my 21st birthday, I'm on cloud nine right now! They sound great with music and thx movies. That's all I've had the chance to look at, but I definately recommend these to anyone! I take that back, I wouldn't recommend these to people living in apartment complexes or people that have a lot of glass on shelves as it will get you into some SERIOUS trouble! I've had them for a half an hour and have already had management tell me to turn them down...I LOVE IT!
