Surely for less than £30 more the above would be an even better investment. And that's just buying the set up from currys I've seen better options elsewhere but I'm pricewatching AV kit at the moment for a good bargain and had that link to hand. And for under £200 there are a range of 5.1 systems available with an AV receiver with more ports than you can shake a stick at.

Onkyo ports, I think you will agree are certainly more varied and future proof for any future devices you may want to hook up to 5.1.

The above is also without even trying to beat this price as I've seen a pioneer AV set up for £199.99 in the last few days with similar features to the onkyo less a few HDMI ports.

As you have not bothered to read the post, that is one of the models I am watching, if you are spending £200 on surround sound I sure as hell want to be sure I can connect everything I own to get the most of out the 5.1 outputs. As you cant be bothered to read then I will spell it out for you with items in and around the same price range

Because the Okyo is way more than 40% a better deal than the Logitech. That said £75 is quite a jump.

I have a predecessor Logitech, it's very tired and a bit buggy now but still doing service in a second living room. I was very pleased with it in the years I had it as an AV system but it was getting dated with few inputs, especially no HDMI and, IIRC, it would turn itself off when the signal changed from Dolby Digital to Prologic. When Logitech announced the Z906 lot's of people like me were excited and hoped it would be a major update. But it wasn't, it seems to be almost exactly the same system in a revamped case and vastly overpriced. In the end I bought an Onkyo AXV-690 system for £280 and it is a huge step up in functionality, and quality, compared to the Logitech. The only significant advantage of the Logitech was that it was much more compact and could hidden away with just the small head-unit showing. Other than that I would say the Onkyo is at least 100% better.
Would highly recommend the Yamaha YHT196 over this! (as per Astec123 link)

richersounds.com/pro…196

I was in the market for my first surround sound / amplifier set and almost bought this Logitech. Thankfully at the last minute I found the Yamaha on Richersound.

Even if you are intending on connecting a computer to Logitech, you would be much better getting the Yamaha and using optical in / HDMI to connect it up.

I did READ your post, no where in it do you link to richersounds website or mention the yamaha one for £10 less. you ONLY mention the onkyo and pioneer.

I don't know how you get the i didn't read your post from pointing out the 2 you mention ARE more expensive than the logitech z906, plus this deal is for THIS particular product not a general av kit deal. thus the hot/cold SHOULD be based on the prices of THIS particular product at other etailers/retailers.

I have the z5500, got it connected to my pc and ps3. i was planning on getting a new tv and connecting it up to that but the plan for the tv has been put on hold.

Fine go waste your money. I don't care but it seems you are in the minority with your opinion about this. Clearly you have not used google shopping and looked around at alternatives. As I said it is available for a mere £30 more but of course you want me to spell it out on a plate and give you all my research for you in an instant, sorry I'm not your personal slave.

^has the Onkyo got a pc input for 5.1
Z-906s are a downgrade from Z-5500s in all areas. Wouldn't pay anything for them, especially considering the Z-5500s were found on here for about £130 a year or so ago.

You mean a 6 channel input?

Yes it has, you would just use the HDMI out on your graphics card or motherboard.

It hasn't got a proper discrete analogue 6 channel input, but why would you want one? You would only use that if you had some high end equipment, you definately wouldn't if you're buying a receiver that cheap.

The Z906s have it out of nessecity....Not choice, it doesn't have HDMI so it's kinda the only thing it could have for surround sound apart from DD Live or DTS Connect, which doesn't sound too bad on my Z-5500s to be honest.

where did I ask you to be my slave? don't know what you're reading but it sure as hell not what I'm posting. also I'm not looking at buying ay av kit at the moment so would be buying the logitech z906.

Yeah I mean green/ orange/ black/ 6 channel input and the onkyo won't work like that with audigy 2 zs platinum or X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty

I have Gigaworks s750 7.1 and Logitech z 5450 and z 5500's and comparing this deal for equipment which is predominately for PC use/ with some other AV equipment connectivity thrown in to the Onkyo is not a realistic comparison. They share certain aspects but are not designed for the same customers or exact needs of those customers.

Well obviously being of ancient design it's going to be more useful than modern era kit for connecting obsolete input sources

Lol: Oldish soundcards maybe but Quality compared to X onboard and many modern variants
I personally don't see this as a good deal - if you're going to use the 5.1 output from your PC, then the built in digital decoders on this are superfluous - money down the drain - you might as well buy a more basic 5.1 system, or you could even just buy 3 sets of 2.1 speakers.

If you need a digital decoder, a separates AV amp will blow this out of the water, the decoder will be AT LEAST as good as the logitech one and probably significantly better, you can choose whatever spekers you want and it will support more devices. Most importantly, as a package it'll probably sound better as well.

Re: onkyo and PC

optical digital out (X-Fi etc) ---> optical digital in (AV gear)
