Earphones give kicks to audiophiles. But true happiness is when a surround sound system shakes up a home’s walls and disturbs the neighbors’ sleep (no pun intended).
The bass that is a part of the home theatre system delivers real joy for a seasoned audiophile.
If you’re planning to purchase the infamous Logitech Z906 speaker system, you might be concerned about the size. How big is it?
Logitech Z906 subwoofer has a height of 11.5″ X 11″ Width with a diameter of 12.5 inches. It weighs 19.8 pounds and you get to enjoy deep distortion-free bass. The remote control measures 4.37″H X 1.69W with a depth of 0.74 inches. The weight comes at 2.36 oz (with the battery).
Logitech Z906 home theatre meets the bill for satisfying the aforementioned requirements. Logitech Z906 is the new flagship speaker set by Logitech. It meets the end-to-end entertainment center requirements at your home.
The Logitech Z906 may be used while watching TV, watching videos, playing video games, or listening to music. The speaker set is not just a home theater, but also a desktop speaker set.

The top features of Z906 include a Class-D amplifier, DTS decoding, Dolby Digital 5.1, an 8-inch side-firing subwoofer, and 500 watts (RMS) of power. This yields the thunderous bass that all audiophiles expect from Logitech.

If we strictly consider the numbers only, we will find that Z906 is possessed with each of the makings of a robust 5.1 setup. This will yield the finest results for the PC room, game room, or living room.
The capabilities of Z906 span to deliver 500 watts (RMS) of power. The power is divided among the main speaker and satellite, and 165-watts go to the side-firing, 8-inch subwoofer. The sub-woofer is not too large as such but is large enough to meet the home-theatre requirements for most people.
The best part about Logitech Z906 is easily discernible. There is a great way in which it blends into an entertainment center. The control console is stackable and is characterized by its compactness. Similarly, Z906 also comes with a wireless remote. Satellites look nice and sleek.
Below each peripheral, rubber strips are provided and the peripherals are all easy to place, close to each other for an attractive arrangement. The sound quality, of course, is great.
How much effect does the subwoofer have over the sound quality?
While the review process was underway, we attempted to watch movies using DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD. This could never happen. We were unable to accomplish the aforementioned.
But, still, positional audio was reasonably accurate. In the action sequences, we discovered a reasonable bit of punch. The speech produced by the central speaker was reasonably clear. The satellites and subwoofers were producing some sounds all the time. But they could never drown the center speaker entirely.
We came to discover that upon turning up the rear satellites, the best possible effect was produced for the surround sound.
The role of the subwoofer, we came to discover, here, was to create bass-heavy sounds. At normal volumes, the sub-woofer is going to create bass-heavy sounds. If the bass-heavy sounds fail to amuse, then, the right way to go about it is to lower the subwoofer volume. Lowering its volume slightly should suffice.
Let us now take a holistic perspective. The sound quality is reasonably good. Even if your living room is larger than what it generally is, Z906 will still fill up your living room with sound.
But if it is a home-cinema setup that you are aiming at, then, you need to get a still hotter set of speakers. Logitech Z906 may not suffice for meeting this requirement.

- Powerful 1000 watts peak power
