Awesome Logitech discount...time to upgrade

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, looking for a 5.1 speaker set to replace my wimpy audio setup as it is. Just got a 50% off any Logitech item coupon, so this is probably the best time to go about purchasing. I looked at the Z906s, which are about $175 after coupon. Good choice?

Also, would a sound card be absolutely necessary?

Thanks,
crazyap7

You're better off buying a webcam or mouse than speakers from Logitech. Get yaself a high-end gaming mouse tbh.

Webcam I don't need, and I have a Logitech G9x as my mouse coupled with a Logitech G15 as my keyboard. I kinda like Logitech.

I've been stuck with an iPod dock (yep, you read that right) as my whole speaker system for the past year...it has a line in at the back. It auto shuts off if the volume gets too high, and distorts pretty often. This is going to be a pretty big upgrade.

For a small room, even the older X540 5.1's would be good in my opinion. I'm not an audiophile, so i don't need the best of the best. I've been scoping the x540's on ebay for a while.

I'm also like you with the whole "I like logitech" thing. I have a G510, used to have a G15, a 2.1 Speaker system from Logitech, and their G35 headset lol. Only my mouse is Razer.

Eh, I've been meaning and saving to buy a good surround system, and this coupon lets me save money, why not? Plus my rig isn't just for gaming, I use it for all my movies, music, etc.

Yea, I'm not much for brand fanboyism, but Logitech really does make some quality products.

I have a X-540 setup currently, they get the job done. But I been clammering to change it out for the Z906 setup they got. It's that or modding my 12" Kicker Comp sub from my car with a bridged 500W Kicker amp and replacing the sub that came with the x-540 set.

I would say get the Z906 setup personally, if it's anything like the X-540 was when it was their top product, then you won't regret it.

They no longer produce the X-540, and the new equivalent product, the Z506, produces less power (75W) than my 2.1 Philips Speaker system (100W)
I too have gotten one of these codes, and don't want to waste it, but I don't know what to get.......

Already have a webcam, G9x mouse and G110 Keyboard. help!

A quality headset? A joystick and get into flight sims?

It'd be a shame to throw away those 50%.

I already have a Turtle Beach Ear Force HPA2 HS, and to me it would be a shame to use a logitech HS, as it would bypass my dedicated soundcard, unless they sound really good. i wouldn't mind having a Joystick or steering wheel, but i dont play those games often and i would want the high end ones, which even with the 50$ off are too much for me right now.......

The only thing i can think of is maybe a High-Def webcam, but i dont have the bandwidth to use it, or a G510 kb, but then i would be left with another keyboard lying around.

I guess i could try one of those headsets, but that would depend on how well you guys like them.......
