Apart from that, however, it's hard to really tell from the review whether they're any good. The only comment about comparative sound quality seems to be "it isnít as loud as my home stereo" which isn't particularly helpful, since we have no idea what your home stereo is, and "loud" is hardly that important in this day and age.

Include more comparisons like that, perhaps?

It was said to be a system good for laptops, but there are three conector plugs and I have only one on the back of my desktop and one on my laptop for a speaker system to plug into. And I was always readjusting the volume and bass knobs on the remote, which was a good satellite control unit, perhapsthe best thing about the whole system besides the black color.
I have two old satellite speakers which produce bass and they sound much better, they have better quallity sound than the x-540!
I'm boxing the x-540 and never use it again.
Besides, my 15-year-old speaker system, similar to the x-540 with only 2 small satallies, which I have always used with desktop computers, does much, much better than the x-540.
I'll keep and use my two old satellite speakers with my laptop and appreciate them more now than ever! I'll not buy Logitech again
m8 u r silly, you can change the level of bass, my sattelites work fine, and only the green sound plug from the sub is supposed to go in to the comp you goob, i give the x-540 a 10/10, i put chronicals of riddick on and i am in the movie! and my next door neighbour is getting pissed off lol, the sound quality on them is far better than my friends speakers which cost his parents £200, he wants to swap but i said no, if you actually read the manual you will seee how to ajust the sound perception, i found a great mix that sounds perfect on all pc, xbox 360, ps2 and music, up ur iq n there is no point replying to me coz this is the only time im going to come on the site

Default Digital

Not knowing much - i'm about to get a Creative SB Extreme X-FI Audio Card PCI-Express - peeps around the place reckon you need a digital speaker set to get the most from the soundcard?

I don't see anything written about these speakers whether or not they are able to directly receive digital input?

Your thoughts?

I only see analog inputs on mine. BTW I'm using onboard audio from my 965P Gigabyte board and I couldn't be happier

The Z5500s are over three times that of the X-540. Thats like me recommending a Corvette over a Civic. No shit it's a better car, it's three times the price.

Stupid....

I just bought this system on ebay cost me 60$ taxes and shipping included.

Afte reading all the comments I think i did a good move.

Hopefully I have a good motherboard with the HD audio 2.1/5.1/7.1 dolby option and all the plug in the back.

And for the one ho are asking if they can have de 5.1 on there x-box or on there computer ho dont have the plugs. I dont think so. But there is an option to arrange that , its not like the real one do

I play CSS and love to listen music, i was checking for a system of this kind for a long time, but being a student don't have a lot of money. The price is just perfect for me.

I just got a set of these today. I'm mightily impressed. They replace my old worn out passive JBL speakers which on my new soundcard were a bit flat.

They sound great, sure they're not the throbbing kilowatt multi-amp system I have in the car to generate spl with, but they're amazingly flat across the whole spectrum, except maybe they tend not to extend down past about 50-60htz easily with the sub enabled. The sattelites are clean and reproduce from about 150htz all the way up really nicely. The top end isn't too brittle or ear-piercing, which is a big bonus.

The sub can tend to get a bit woolly when given waaay too much juice. Basically as you turn the system up, bring the sub down a bit so it's driving a slightly reduced linear signal. It sounds great at all volumes with that in mind.

For $107 Australian it's a great little set for a small room. It doesn't have the spread of my home theatre or the ball-busting, kidney-failing, eardrum tearing volume of my car system but they stand up and are nice and flat and clean.

9/10 from me.

Glad you are happy with your purchase. Most everyone who has used them, that I have talked to, has enjoyed them thoroughly.
