[Press Release] Logitech announces new Z906 surround sound speakers
Logitech has just announced a long awaited successor to perhaps the most successful surround speaker system in PC history, the Z-5500. Z-5500 held the mantle of the best when it came to surround sound for games and movies on a computer or console.
So you can hear every detail in your movies, games and music, today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled the Logitech® Surround Sound Speakers Z906. Delivering 500 watts (RMS) of power, the Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906 are THX® Certified, creating a theater-quality audio experience in your living room.
“We’re delighted to offer consumers a successor to the highly acclaimed Logitech® Z-5500 Digital 5.1 Speaker System,” said Mark Schneider, vice president and general manager of Logitech’s audio business unit. “The Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906 are the logical evolution of surround sound speakers, and we’re confident they will become an indispensable part of the living room.”
Powerful Audio — 500 Watt, THX-Certified Speakers
The Logitech Surround Sound Speakers offer 500 watts (RMS) of power, delivering thunderous audio that can shake your house. Logitech’s newest speakers have met strict performance standards to achieve THX certification — so you can be sure that your entertainment will sound the way it was meant to.
For your Dolby® digital or DTS TM encoded soundtracks, onboard 5.1 digital decoding enables detailed surround sound — from the roar of the crowd to the footsteps right behind you.

And with its easy-to-read display and easy-to-stack design, the control console looks good with your home-entertainment system.
