Gamers have known this for years: There are loads of different surround sound gaming speaker kits, but Logitech’s Z-series have always been awesome. Of course, this will still probably pale in comparison to their older $400, 505-Watt Z-5500 set, but the Z506 is being offered as a more flexible set that can take any entertainment device, including portables, set-top boxes and game consoles aside from a PC—all for a cent under $100.
It’s still your typical set (if you consider a 5.1 surround sound set “typical”), with 75W of power across five satellites and a ‘woofer. As for the “flexibility” it touts, you get an RCA input connection as extra (for connecting set top boxes and consoles) besides the usual 3.5mm jack.
Now, 75W may not look like that big a number, but it should bring enough power to rock a regular-sized room. Certainly more than good enough for a 6-channel kit that costs $100. Something to look forward to if you’re in the market for an affordable do-it-all surround sound kit. It’s due out by August.
