It seems that I spend more time in front of my computer these days than I do in my home theater. As a result, I listen to music, play games, and watch video at my desk almost every day. The idea of a true 5.1 channel surround system has never appealed to me mainly because of the logistics involved with the rear speakers. In both my office and my home computer setups, there is no good way to conceal speaker wires running to the rear surrounds. With the introduction of the Z-5450 Digital multimedia speaker system, Logitech has solved this problem. Suddenly it makes sense to invest in a quality speaker system that would be a great fit for a small office, den, or dorm room.
What makes the Logitech Z-5450 system unique is the controller, that acts as a basic processor to which you can connect your computer, a gaming console, a DVD player, iPod, or just about any source you think of. The possibilities this creates will have you re-thinking your office or dorm setup. I consider this a true convergence product as you can eliminate the expense of a full speaker/sub/receiver setup, without having to skimp on true THX-certified Dolby Digital or DTS performance. Rather than set up a system for your TV/gaming, and another system for your computer, you will find more than enough inputs here to keep all of your gear connected in one place.
