Sound Decision: Logitech Rolls Out a Space Saving Multimedia Speaker System

Paul Lilly

The PC speaker market is still alive, folks!

Speaker makers don't pay as much attention to the PC market as they once did, though they haven't completely abandoned the sector, either. Proof positive of this is Logitech's introduction of the Z213, a brand spanking new set of compact 2.1 multimedia speakers designed for Windows and Mac computer systems, along with tablets, smartphones, and dedicated MP3 players.

"The Logitech Multimedia Speakers Z213 are for people who want great sound quality without breaking their budget," said Philippe Depallens, vice president of speaker products at Logitech. "With this 2.1 speaker system, you also get a setup that doesn’t compromise valuable space on your desktop or in your living room."

Logitech's Z213 sports a down-firing subwoofer with a 4W four-inch driver and a knob on the back for adjusting the bass level. There are two 1.5W (RMS) satellite speakers plus a wired control pod with a 3.5mm audio jack. It's also compatible with Logitech's Bluetooth Audio Adapter , a $40 accessory that costs more than the speaker set itself.

The Logitech Z213 is available to pre-order for $30; shipping is expected sometime this month.
