Sounds good

We wanted Dream Machine 09 to be connected exclusively to a home theatre system but realising that not everyone has a home theatre system, or might not want to connect this rig to their home theatre, we began searching for a quality speaker set.

After going through what felt like thousands of speaker options our attention was finally drawn towards Logitech and its fantastic Z Cinema Advanced Surround Sound System. These speakers drew our attention because despite being a 2.1 system, Logitech claims they can deliver a surround experience. After testing them we’re glad to say that we wholeheartedly agree.

These speakers manage to generate surround sound immersion thanks to SRS TruSurround HD technology. This helps the speakers create an immersive audio experience around you without the hassle of setting up a fully-fledged 5.1 or 7.1 speaker set. The speakers also offer razor sharp audio output because unlike most regular speakers which use analog connections, these connect to your PC via USB, which means they are able to receive pure 24-bit digital audio.

Beyond the technology the Z Cinema just sounds awesome and this is thanks to a high-quality digital crossover equaliser and some super strong power outputs. The subwoofer is capable of a massive 110-watts RMS of power output whilst the satellites offer 26-watts RMS from each midwoofer and 9-watts RMS from each tweeter. As a result these speakers can easily fill a large room with crystal clear, high-quality audio.

There’s convenience on offer too and in fitting with our thoughts of Dream Machine 09 being used in a living room, there’s a remote control that allows you to interact with the speakers as well as with the PC via Windows Media Player.
