Logitech Z200 Speaker

~~~~~~~ WHY BUY THESE SPEAKERS? ~~~~~~

Just after we moved into our new house the speakers we had had for over ten years decided they were too tired to continue working. This meant we needed to buy some new ones quite quickly as the computer is our music player as well. The previous speaker system was quite expensive and had a big sub woofer thing but we decided that maybe we would buy a more basic pair of speakers and see how we found those.

~~~~~~~ BUYING OUR SPEAKERS ~~~~~~~
These we ordered through Amazon and they cost £23.24 and postage is free. We paid slightly more around £27 but still less than £30 so pretty decent price provided they do the job.

The speakers arrived in a few days and were well packed in a box with bubble wrap etc. I unwrapped them and plugged them into the computer and into the electricity as they are powered by mains electricity not through the computer .In just a couple of minutes they were installed and working. It was extremely easy for anyone with a small amount of computer knowledge and basic brains.

Inside the box were the two speakers and a power supply plus some simple instructions which were pretty much unnecessary.

~~~~~ DESCRIPTION OF THESE SPEAKERS FROM AMAZON ~~~~~~

“With 10 watts of peak power and 2 drivers per satellite, these modern-looking multimedia speakers pump out enough volume to fill any room with rich, balanced stereo sound plus added deep bass.”

~~~~~~ HOW DO THEY SOUND? ~~~~~~
Remember our previous speakers can a big subwoofer so I was not expecting these to pack the same punch especially in the base. The volume can be controlled on the computer and on the speakers using a dial. You can also control the bass with a bass control wheel. They don’t sound quite like the previous speakers but in all truth they are pretty darn good. The room the computer is in is not that big but we can raise the volume to carry throughout the house and in the room itself we usually have them pretty low in volume.

There are two 2.5-inch drivers per speaker which are tuned for added base and they have 10 watts of peak power but I am sure we use less than half that!


The base treble balance is also quite decent and sounds good with a variety of different music We also use these speakers when watching catch up TV through the internet as our computer is connected through the TV so that the TV is also our monitor. We enjoy a variety of films and shows and have been more than happy with the sound from these speakers.

The speakers can not only be used on the computer but also they can be used with a tablet or mobile phone as they have two audio inputs. They are not that big so you can pretty easily remove them from the computer and use them in another room. At that price you could buy a second set to use with the tablet or phone.

You can in fact have the speakers attached to both the computer and a mobile phone at the same time as there is both a 3.5mm audio line in and auxiliary input and you can switch between the two gadgets.

~~~~~~ WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE? ~~~~~

We partly chose these because they looked pretty simple and plain and would not be so big that they might dominate the room.

They are black and silver. Black plastic rectangular with rounded corners with two silver circles for the actual speakers holes. They stand around a foot high and about five inches across and have a silver stand that comes out from the back. The dial for adjusting the volume and base is on one speaker.

~~~~~~ WHAT CAN I USE THESE SPEAKERS FOR? ~~~~~
They are compatible with computers and laptops using Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows 8 and windows 10 as well as Mac OS X, as well as Tablets, smart phones and MP3 players.

These speakers also have a headphone jack so you can listen through headphones instead of through the speakers if you choose.

~~~~~ WARRANTY AND MANUFACTURER SUPPORT ~~~~~~

This comes with a twelve month warranty but not a lot of manufacturer's support. I have not tried to get any but Imagine it would be pretty non existent. The instruction book was a bit of paper , not great but in reality you didn't need it.

RECOMMENDED?
Yes we have been happy with these. We find the sound for both movies and music to be good. They wouldn’t satisfy those who like their movies with base that makes your floor vibrate but it give s a good stereo sound. The same with music , if you like you music loud with thumping base that the neighbours across the road can share then give these a miss but for general listening to music at normal sound these are great.

Thanks for reading.
