The Logitech Z Cinema Advanced Surround Sound System has several advantages over comparable home theater sound set ups. First, the Logitech Z system provides a surround sound home theater experience without the need for rear speakers. Second, the system needs only a single USB connection to your computer to operate and plugs into any standard home electrical outlet. The system will function on Windows XP MCE, Vista Home Premium, or Vista Ultimate editions and the satellite speaker allows you to plug in earphones or an MP3 music player directly. A remote control (included with the system) allows you to access Windows Media center on your computer and manage digital files without getting up.
The Logitech Z Cinema Advanced Surround Sound System is a good entry level system for people who are backing into home theater by streaming movies through a PC. For a retail price that averages right around $250, the Logitech Z system provides lots of sound option for not a lot of money.
