Logitech Debuts Z623 2.1 Channel PC Speaker System

In need of new speakers? Logitech has you covered. Whether you're looking for new PC speakers, new TV speakers, or a new set for your studio apartment in general, the new Z623 system could fit the bill. It's a mid-sized 2.1 setup, complete with a small pair of satellites and a robust ported subwoofer. Together, the kit offers 200 watts (RMS) of power, which is plenty for the back to school kid in your life or the bedroom you've needed to fill with sound.

These speakers are pretty simple. Logitech designed them to be plug-and-play in nature, so you won't find too many knobs, bells or whistles. Just a headphone jack, a 3.5mm input and an RCA input, along with dedicated volume and bass knobs on one of the satellites. It's also a wired system, so you can kiss the wireless dreams goodbye, but they do include THX certification for whatever it's worth.

The Z623 system will ship in the U.S. and Europe next month for $149.99, which doesn't seem too lofty given Logitech's history of great PC speakers.

With this 2.1 system, you’ll hear and feel immersive audio from 200 watts (RMS) of power whether you’re connecting the speakers to a PC or a TV.

    “Whether you’re listening to rock music, watching a Steven Spielberg flick, or playing your favorite video game, the experience is always richer when you get engrossed in the audio”

“Whether you’re listening to rock music, watching a Steven Spielberg flick, or playing your favorite video game, the experience is always richer when you get engrossed in the audio,” said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s audio business unit. “That’s why we built the Logitech Speaker System Z623 – so you can lose yourself in whatever you’re into. For DVD aficionados, music enthusiasts and hardcore gamers, the Z623 system delivers powerful audio for your room. And with THX certification, you know you’re getting the best.”

So you can set up the system the way you want, Logitech includes all the inputs and cables you need to get great sound from up to three audio devices. With the RCA and 3.5 mm inputs, in addition to the built-in headphone jack, you can be set up in minutes to enjoy great sound from your computer, game console, digital music players, TV or DVD player. And to put you in command, the integrated controls on the right speaker satellite let you dial the volume and bass up or down to customize your listening experience.

Logitech and THX – Delivering Pure Performance

To get you totally immersed in your audio, the Logitech Z623 speakers are THX Certified and professionally engineered to recreate the tonal balance of whatever you’re listening to. To qualify for THX certification, the two-satellite-and-subwoofer Z623 speaker system has to meet strict performance standards. Logitech engineers have worked closely with THX, conducting more than 400 acoustic and electrical bench tests covering frequency response, power output, distortion, noise and overall performance. For the Logitech Z623 speakers, the result is front speakers that deliver dialogue and ambient sounds so clear it’s like you’re on the set of your favorite film. And you’ll hear powerful, deep bass from your subwoofer as it recreates the roar of a jet engine or the sound of a collapsing bridge.

The Logitech Speaker System Z623 is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe in September for a suggested retail price of $149.99 (U.S.).
