LOGITECH X-530 5.1 Speaker System £39.49 back on at Currys

cynic-alcynic-al

This deal (prev 733 degrees!) has been resurrected, albeit briefly - ends midnight Monday I think.

1.5% quidco (50p!)...I hope it's good as I've ordered one...enjoy!

I should say I am a fan of logitech stuff, seems solid and good sound. I looked at the successor (Z506) and while both were getting good ratings, the satellites on the Z506 are 2-way speakers (rather than 2 x the same driver) but they don't have mounting brackets built in (although the central speaker has a really clever bracket to clip to the top of your TV). Otherwise it appears they are more or less the same (70W v 75W).

I think the cables on this set-up are a little short but the spec is not on the Logitech site and I CBA looking through the older threads!

Delivery only it seems....

    By sheer luck I bought the same item about 4 yrs ago for same price in a curry's clearout deal. have enjoyed it since then. can confirm it is very good. there might be some issues with connecting wires as you may not be able to use all the 5 outputs on the pc as it has only 3 input wires

    Yeah I think it's not proper 5.1 but I'm plugging it into my telly so IDGAS!

    EDIT - apparently it will do 5.1, see below.

    Comet have it at £69.99 on THIS PAGE, so don't know where you are getting your Comet price.

    It is proper 5.1, you have three cables going into the pc - one is front left and right, one is rear left and right, and the last is centre and sub, same as any PC based 5.1 system.

    Obviously you need a proper 5.1 sound card or 7.1 soundcard.

    fair enough, I don't understand all that, I'm still on stereo! :D

    Are these for a PC or can they be used with a tv/blu-ray set up?

    Im looking for some cheap but decent surround sound speakers for my TV in conservatory. Would anyone recommend these for the job and would they do what im looking for? Thanks.

    Hey guys I was wondering if I could connect this up to my tv as my speakers are terrible :(

    They do output full 5.1. Only if you have a sound card/other device with orange, black, and green 3.5mm jack outputs. For TV/Console etc you will need to use the phono to jack adapter (that is included) - of course this isnt true 5.1. These are designed for PC so as far as i know the only way to output true 5.1 is this way.

    I bought myself a pair of these from Comet for £39 on Friday when they had them at that price for a limited time.

    5 stars from me, ace pair of speakers! Especially considering the price. You wont get better @ this price range.

    They're for a PC. Using them with a TV won't get you proper surround sound, you need an AV receiver for that.

    Had my pair arrive recently via the last offer direct from Logitech. Found that when volume turned low and no sound being output by device. They were picking up Russia AM broadcasts. They are now in the process of being returned for a refund.

    I had that on the 2.1 version I had a few years ago. Rather scary !!! I'm happy using my turtle beach x41's for now. Still these are good value for money !

    These are great for the price, logitech do the best budget speakers by a long way.

    Would these work with a Panasonic blu ray player by chance ? I bought my dad the one from amazon when we got all the blu rays free and ended up with the player for free , thanks

    As TheVoice said, they are designed for PC use (which has 6 individual channel outputs), HOWEVER (as with the setup I have in a bedroom) you can connect them to a dvd or bluray player with a built in decoder (such as the old Samsung BD-P1400 or Panasonic DMP-BD55) and get 5.1 channel surround. Not that many units have them, but the outputs you'd be looking for are individual phono jacks for front l/r, rear l/r, center and subwoofer. If connected to a two channel input, it will also still mix the signal so that you get a pseudo surround effect (but obviously not true 5.1 channel).

    can anyone confirm if this comes with the ps3 adapter? thanks
