Hands on with the Logitech Speaker System Z623
by Mark R
I believe that the Logitech’s Speaker System Z623 is designed for the desktop, but it could easily be made as a low-budget home theater alternative.
When I found that Logitech had sent me this product, I immediately decided to connect it to my television to see how well it works. It was good to have a THX certified system with 200 watts of power.
The entire setup comes with the 130 Watts Subwoofer, which has a 7-inch pressure driver. The two satellite speakers are each 25 Watts with 2.5 inch dome drivers and aluminum phase plugs.
Okay, that was the spec information, and, honestly, I don’t really know much about it. I’m not really a stereotypical stereo-type. I do know that once I had hooked it up to my television, I got some serious sound that was brash and loud, and it worked for my DVD and gaming system.
The right speaker had a certain 3.5mm jack located just below the headphones. You can plug your iPod into it and immediately have the 200 Watt power. I did it with my laptop had had the same effect. It is good for Hulu videos.
All in all, I am pretty pleased. I believe that the Logitech Speaker System Z623 is already shipping, at a MSRP of $149.99.
