Logitech Launches Flexible 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker Set

The PC speaker market isn't as exciting as it once was -- remember when Logitech and Klipsch would duke it out with high-end speaker sets? -- but that doesn't mean it's dead entirely. To prove it, Logitech this weekend announced its Z506 Surround Sound Speakers.

According to Logitech, the Z506 is easily connected to just about any home entertainment device, and yes, that includes your PC. It also includes your PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, iPod, and DVD player.

"To ensure that the Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z506 are easy to set up, we color coded all the cables and included an accessory cable for soundcards and music players," Logitech states in a blog post . "And, if you're a gamer, you can connect the Z506 speakers directly to your game console's existing RCA cable."

In addition to multiple inputs, the Z506 delivers 75 watts (RMS) of power, dedicated bass control, and a ported, down-firing subwoofer.

The Z506 is available now for $100.
