Logitech products appear to fit into two separate categories, especially when it comes to speakers. We've seen – and heard – £200 5.1 setups that have blown everything else clean out of the water, but on the other hand, you can also pick up a set of stereo speakers for £15 that sound like they should have cost no more than a fiver. At £120 the Z623 certainly doesn't come cheap, but does it sound like it's worth all that extra money? The answer is a resounding yes. The sound is deep and rich, and the most 'three-dimensional' we've ever heard from a 2.1 system. Even coming from a laptop's dubious-quality in-built sound card, the sounds of gunfire in our favourite FPS seemed to come from all around us. How soothing. The bass and treble are perfectly tuned out of the box, but if you want to add more bass there's a dedicated rotary dial on the right-hand speaker. Despite the slightly 'Day of the Tentacle' design of the speakers, they're well built too. The subwoofer is one of the smaller ones we've seen, but it did just as good a job of bass reproduction as ones the size of a small fridge. The satellites compliment it perfectly, being adequately weighted in terms of both construction and sound.
In the age of the ubiquitous iPod speaker dock, it seems few manufacturers are still making quality speaker systems designed for computers. So it's refreshing (and a little surprising) to see one of the leaders of the pack, Logitech, step up with one of the best-sounding 2.1-channel PC speaker sets we've tested in a while. At $149.99 (direct), the Logitech Speaker System Z623 doesn't quite qualify as a steal, but it delivers excellent audio performance and surprising power for its price range. The THX certification will attract some movie buffs (more on that later), but the Z623 is equally appropriate for music, with a thunderous subwoofer that can be dialed up for the party's sake, or scaled back for more refined settings. Logitech gets the details right with the Z623, and earns our Editors' Choice with this well-executed 2.1 system. Unlike, say, the Harman Kardon SoundSticks II ($169.99, ) another excellent 2.1-channel set - the Logitech Speaker System Z623 will take up a significant amount of space. The 7.8 by 5.6 by 5.4-inch stereo speakers (HWD), which are angled upward for proper desktop listening, are shorter and wider than most desktop speakers. The right speaker's front panel houses three knobs - for Power, Volume, and Bass level - under the 2.5-inch driver.
Logitech astounds us on a regular basis with their ability to produce dirt-cheap yet solid-sounding speakers. We can only imagine how thin their profit margins must be; heck, that’s probably why there are so few other players in this segment. But the quality of their latest offering, the Speaker System Z623, barely passes muster. It also leaves us wondering what value THX certification really holds for the consumer at this price point. The Z623 is a 2.1-channel system equipped with a 200-watt amplifier that delivers 35 watts to each of the satellite speakers and 130 watts to the sub. The satellites have a single driver each--a 2.5-inch dome with an aluminum phase plug--while the subwoofer utilizes a seven-inch pressure driver with a bass port in its cabinet. As is typical in this category, the satellites have hard-wired cables that plug into the sub, where the amp is located. Logitech's Z623 is a 2.1-channel system with a generously sized subwoofer. Logitech offers plenty of analog inputs: The subwoofer cabinet has both stereo RCA inputs and a stereo 1/8-inch jack, and there’s a second stereo 1/8-inch jack on the right-hand speaker cabinet.
