For all those who still believe that a 2.1 speaker system cannot wreck havoc in your room and still offer an outstanding audio quality, the Z-2300 from Logitech is here to prove them wrong. Do not look with amused eyes at this fairly moderately-sized piece of audio technology, because you're about to be surprised: carrying on the awesome heritage of the initial Z-models, the Logitech Z-2300 boasts the same mind-blowing characteristics as its bigger siblings.
Building on exceptional engineering principles like pretty much all Logitech products, the first thing that will pop up in your eye is the Z-2300's THX certification. This means a very high quality standard as well and a technology-load that just isn't met everywhere, in case you are looking for some gear to place your serious trust upon, then the THX-certified equipment is the right way to go.
The Logitech Z-2300 will deliver a max of 200W continuous power in your room, with explosive 400W short-term peaks, offering quite a blasting experience with games, movies and music. The 8-inch subwoofer comes in a front-firing position, while it sports a side-firing flared bass-reflex port generating a thick rumble free from distortions and adding to the massive sound staging.
The satellites come with a 2-way architecture and their small woofers are loaded with polished aluminum phase plugs for a more frequency coherent response, enhancing the overall feeling of high-class audio. Each satellite blasts up to 40W while the subwoofer delivers 120W; the frequency response ranges between a 35 Hz rumble and shimmering 20 kHz highs, for a neat sound representation with articulate musicality.
The ultra-linear analog amplifier ensures a signal to noise ratio over 100 dB,for a high-quality acoustic experience. The Logitech Z-2300 comes with a wired remote with volume and subwoofer controls, a standby switch and headphone jack, for a more comfortable operation. This neat THX sound system retails for $149.
