Definitely, Logitech Z-2300 is way better than Logitech Z-623. Just follow the posts below and you will know why.

Incredible review. I'm wondering would the Z2300 be able to run on 230V?

I will be going back to Singapore and hopefully i can bring it back without the need of a transformer.

Probaly the best PC speakers on the market. Another good set of speakers are the Harmon Kardon Sound Sticks 2

Lets face it.  The Z-5500's ain't so hot either.

They are ok for Games, but for Movies and espeically Music they are terrible.

The mail issue is Logitech's design decision to cross-over the Sub at 125hz instead of the typical 80hz.  This sends way too much information to the sub, causing the sub to be muddy and flabby.  125hz is high enough to have directional value, and it's entirely missing from the Z-5500's.

The only cure is to use an equalizer and drop the 125hz slider down 3-6db.  It's at least passable for music then, but they are still not musical speakers by any means.

I SO miss my Klipsch ProMedia 5.1's.  Yes, they had some engineering issues but Klipsch took care of everyone.  Sadly no one can expect them to replace a 6 year old set, which mine were when the amp finally went.

IMHO, there are no real good MUSICAL PC speakers since the Klipsch's were discontinued.  You are far better off spending your money on a nice, but moderate, 5.1 receiver, and a good set of 5.1 speakers.

Would it be possible to review computer speakers made by Altec Lansing? I'm looking at the Octane 7 and it looks nice, the sub is nice and powerful too, but I was wondering what MaxPC would think of it. The VS4121 is also interesting.

Altec Lansing speakers stink. Period.

I remember the first THX certified computer speakers, the Klipsch Promedia 4.1's.  They got a 10 Kick Ass rating from MaximumPC and we're the reigning Best of the Best champs for a good while if I'm not mistaken.  Well it turns out, after less than a month of owning these beauties, they started making crackling and popping noises.  Apparently, there was a defect in the product and Klipsch was offering replacements.  Klipsch sent me a new volume control panel to replace on one of the satelites.  All seemed to be well for about a month and then the crackling and popping noises started again.

So much for THX certification.. (and Kick Ass ratings for that matter)

Why do they keep releasing new 2.1s and underpowered 5.1 they released a while back?

I love logitech speakers, but they need to introduce a GOOD replacement for their z5500.

I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
