Thanks for the feedback. There's a 1 to 2 week wait for delivery at the moment, but the best price they've been so far ;-)

Anyone know what range these have? Could I run them from pc which is upstairs down to the living room? Ive been looking at cinema surround sound systems too but have been put off by the number of wires that would need to go round the room. I suppose I would need a DVD player to run these from..... Hmmm food for thought.

im not too sure about the wireless ones but the Z5500's have liek a 4.5 metre cable for each speaker

Looks like a great set of speakers, although for the audio quality you'd get, you'd probably be spending only around £60 for these if they were wired wouldn't you?

I'm in no rush for a surround sound yet, and definitely don't want the hassle and potential ugliness of cables, so do you guys think waiting it out a little while to when it isn't just the latest thing on the market would be a wise idea?

Can anyone tell me what has to be plugged in? I want to use it with my laptop and I don't want wires or devices trailing from it. Just how wireless is it? And what is this system designed for? A home cinema set up or PC set up or both?

A lot of laptops won't have a 5.1 sound card so best check that before you purchase.

Welcome to HotUKDeals Sinecure and Thanks blizeH for the note on the soundcard spec required

You would need a 5.1 capable output from your laptop or computer. The usual 3.5 jack plug is for stereo only.

Another great deal, thanks ray! :thumbsup: Congrats on passing the 22,000 posts :w00t:


Welcome to the forums from me too Sinecure

Dont forget that the wiresless speakers on the z-5450 still have to be plugged into the mains.

Can I also give the wired version (z-5400) as an alternative.

I picked it up last week for only £130.90 from pixmania and can recommend it highly: ]http//ww…540]0.html

They connect wirelessly for the audio stream but still need power.

Good thing too Or batteries would cost a fortune ;-)

I have these and they sound great to me. It's correct the rear speakers need to be plugged in to power and so does the sub. The control unit runs of the subs power and the front and center speakers are also connected to the sub. I have this in my front room, in there I also have my bt home hub, a laptop, video/audio sender connected to my sky and an xbox 360 wifi adapter. I've yet to notice any interference with the other wireless devices which I know can sometimes be an issue.:roll:

Sounds rather useless to me; the whole appeal of this is to have a very neat setup, not for them to expect you to have four different plug sockets scattered around the room

Im interested in upgrading my compact hifi to something more powerful and was looking at 5.1 surround. I was just wondering if someone who had these could tell me whether they sound great for playing music from a computer?

Obviously they are seriously powerful bass wise for games and films which will be cool but do they produce a nice sound for music?

Cheers

I'm thinking of getting these:thinking: has any one got a set already ,who can give me their opinion:thumbsup:

Hi Fox2020,

I have these and I can't recommend them enough. They're not for everyone if people are worried about plug sockets etc but for me I have the perfect placement for them. As with most Amps everything is changable so u can increase/decrease the volume on sub/center/rear/front independently.

The Pixmania technical information sheet for the Z-5400 say "Connector Type 1 x digital 5.1 channel audio line-in, 1 x audio line-in" Is this a mistake? Should it not be 2X optical, 1X co-ax and analogue 5.1 or 3X stereo or does the 5400 have less connections than the 5450? Cheers.

Cheers Stealer:thumbsup:

It's got 2x Optical (one is plugged into my PS2 the other is waiting for an x360), one coax (connected to my PC) and 3 stereo (there is a switch to choose between three seperate stereo sources or a 5.1 sound card with 3 cables). Hope to help

Jon

My pleasure

Sorry to re-ask this if it has already been answered, but how do these fair up the specific home theatre kits for the same money, i.e. the ones that are solely for your tv not compatible with the PC as well?

They are about the same price as a set of tannoys that I have been looking at in richer sounds (minus the wireless, but not fussed about that), but just wondered how they faired in terms of sounds quality?

LOL - I've got a Sherwood amp from Richer Sounds too. Not had any trouble with mine, but am looking to upgrade to a DTS amp very shortly.
It's richer sounds that I would be comparing price/performance with as I'd seen a set of 5.1 tannoys for 150 in there.
Keep me updated with how the speakers are when you get them.
Cheers

One other question without trying to sound stupid. Is this setup OK to link direct to an amp and then have all my audio/video devices in the amp, i.e. one amp output to the speakers, and many amp inputs for all the devices if that makes sense? Is sounds straight forward in my head! :o)

Do agree that this is a good price, but as mentioned an earlier post, you do need mains sockets for the rear speakers, so if you are looking to reduce the wiring this does not do it. Also in some of the reviews I read some people
were experiencing interference on the rear speakers from other wireless devices.

So for me the solution was to go with the wired version Z5400 which was also mentioned earlier and at £130 including delivery from Pixmania (plus another 5% from Quidco), makes a saving off around £50 over the Z5450s:

pixmania.co.uk/uk/…tml

The speakers for the price are just spot on, sounds are crisp and clear, plus the sub is really powerful. All the input options also make these speakers work for me. Delivery from Pixmania was good, although if you did have a problem, sending back may be an issue.

The stands that come with the speakers make for difficult wall mounting, but bought two small wall brackets from Maplin:

maplin.co.uk/mod…5m2

The screw threads were slightly different, but was able to retap to the correct thread in the speakers. Can now adjust to my hearts content!

Hmmmm that kind of takes away the wireless aspect if you have to plug them in! I want something that i can put my 360, PS2, PC through but wireless rear speakers are preferable..

I ordered the wireless Z5450 system about a year ago from Amazon when the price had dropped to £145.71 for some reason. It was only this price for a couple of days then it went back up to about £250.

I have been really pleased with the system. I have several wireless devices in the house (WiFi, DECT phone, etc.) and get no interference. The power is very good, though it depends on the size of your room (mine is about 3.5x3.5 metres). I bought them based on price, connectivity (I had all the inputs in use at one stage!) and performance. For what i paid, i think it was a bargain and would buy them again.

Hi There

I am new to this site and wondered if you could give me some advice please.

I am interested in having a wireless suuround system cost no more than £200 - the Logitech Z5450 system seems to be ok from the reviews.

I need it to be wireless although I know the rear speakers must be plugged in - do you have any advice - i am concerned that I buy 1 and I cannot get it to work etc
I have a TV connected to sky box and also a dvd recorder - all the 2 scart ports on each device are being used.

Furthermore, many of the syetms that I have seen seem to have some sort of dvd player lokking device but this Logitech does not hav ethis - so does this mean one can play the dvd s through my own DVD recorder/player and it works the same - if so then it will be a bit more clutter free as no need for the big player

Hope you can advise me

many thanks again
