Saying that all Logitech speakers are bad period is obviously an uninformed conclusion, because comparing these speakers to any other 2.1 setup is not even close. No static noise, clear highs, boomy lows, great crossover, the sub even has a beefy radiator mount on it. They are THX certified as well, but it is just a label.
I'm disappointed that a moderator would make a direct insult to someone's purchase, especially if their entire reason is brand name.
@Patawic Thank you for your input, that's actually a very nice idea, though I worry that the speakers will be too high for my liking, I'll have to see how the audio reflects off the ceiling of my hutch, or maybe I can mount them to the sides of the hutch, since there's a descent 3" clearance for sound. Another thought is getting a new desk entirely so I can have more space and just put the speakers on the sides of the 3 monitors. +1 for unique input.
@Demented The problem I have is that the sides of my hutch almost block all sound from correctly leaving it. If I get a new desk then it'll be less of an issue, but then again, as stated above, I can just put my speakers on the sides of my monitors. I've already tested the acoustics with items sized relative to my 24" monitor and I hear a big difference. Since how I have my setup now, I aim the speakers so that the waves bounce off the sides of the hutch and they all channel into the "sweet spot" where I sit. So then all of the waves hit perpendicular to the monitors that will be in front of them, causing a lot of unnecessary bouncing inside basically a sealed area with small openings to channel audio out, which results in more muffling than a normal setup without a hutch.
You know what? Enjoy them then.
I would advise you to take a good honest read into PROPER reviews on them though, and realize them for the faults that they very clearly have. I hate on Logitech speakers for good reason.
To take your exact words:
No static noise = Any proper cabling will result in no noise.
clear highs = Sure...up to 8Khz. The human ear can generally hear up to 20kHz.
boomy lows = There are no lows. The "sub" stops at 45Hz.
great crossover = No, just no. The crossover is set at 250-300Hz. That's HORRIBLE.
the sub even has a beefy radiator mount on it = That's the heatsink for the amp...typical of any amp honestly.
They are THX certified as well, but it is just a label. = THX for multimedia speakers. Proper THX is a LOT more strict than this, its a common mis understanding.Edited by pioneerisloud - 2/4/12 at 1:45am
