I'm reviewing the Logitech X-530 speaker set, which is a 5.1 Surround Sound speaker set for your computer. The X-530 consists of a set of five small speakers, known as 'satellites', and subwoofer, which is the larger unit that produces the bass. This is where the term '5.1 Surround' comes from...

I bought these Logitech P.C theatre speakers a couple of months ago for my University room. You might think that is over the top but I totally love my music and couldn't help it. I bought the speakers from P.C world for only £36.00. How did I get them that cheap? Well I reserved the speakers...

“X-530”

Price/quality, look

sensitive to interference

, Most people aim at good quality sound in PC's. Often good sound card is not enough and better speakers must be bought. That means spending more money for good stuff, or less for cheaper brand. Not necessarily when considering Logitech X-530 5.1 speakers. First some esential tech data: Total pow...

“Fething 'uge Bass Speaker”

published 16/04/2007

Cheap and brilliant sound quality

Cables far too short, trouble with rear speakers

Logitech speakers, 5.1 surround. The name tells it all. They are the cream of speakers. Never experienced surround sound? Should be shot (Bit drastic actually). Never fear, Logitech to the rescue with this relatively cheap 5.1 system. Not the best on the market arguably, but it still serves its...

I bought this surround sound system from amazon.co.uk for £39.99. The X350 set includes 4 'satellite' speakers (each 7.4 Watts), a centre channel speaker (15.5 Watts) and the subwoofer (25 Watts) - these amount to a 70 watts RMS, with a maximum output power of 140 Watts. Being at University, I...

“Sounds Good To Me!”

Great sound quality, wall mountable

Too many wires

I am a very minimalistic person and I also love music. I absolutely hate having CD's, as I feel they take up far too much room, especially if I had every single album that I actually own. I got rid of all my CD's and my Hi-Fi a few years ago and decided to stick all my music on external storage...

I brought the Logitech X-530 speakers 7 months ago and do not regret it. They look nice, they look a lot more than £40 and come to think of it, they sound more than £40 pounds as well. When I was deciding whether to get these I thought they didn't look that powerful, but I was 100% wrong I lifted...

The speakers have an OK sound but nothing spectacular. The main problem I had was the bad design. The way it is set up, the volume and power controls are in the front right speaker, not a dongle which sits on the desk. The master speaker only has a 6 foot cord so the Front Right speaker has to be...

“some good things come small”

published 27/03/2006

very good budget system

no digital input

I currently have a Z5500 on my pc, while I have a X-530 on my TV set. Immediate concerns: no digital input; MUST have a 5.1 audio source for all speakers to play. Most DVD players have 5.1 audio output, but they are RCA connectors, and this system has 3 3.5mm headphone jacks for inputs...

“X 530 PC Speakers”

Good quality sound

Lots of wires for this one

I have owned these speakers now for a while and overall I am very pleased with them. The sound quality is very impressive and the bass is awesome. The only problem with these speakers is when by them they come ready for a surround sound system or for a computer with means it has different...

Amazing sound for a good price and easy set up

Minor difficulties in configuration

I bought these speakers to be used with my new computer a few months back now and have not ever had second thought. I use them mainly to play music but also heavy duties such as computer gaming. They were easy to set up with more that adequate instruction. It took me a while to configure them to...

Good

published 20/03/2008

These are great budget speakers, however the subwoofer's bare minimum volume is so high it annoys the neighbours. The rear speakers are very quiet unless you swap the two audio output connectors which when sound testing, leaves you with zig-zagging effects. Its also a shame the headphones outlet never worked on it.
