Logitech Z-10 Speakers

Computer keyboards often ship with media buttons to control basic music and video functions without having to switch to the program. This is not always useful: without track information, users still have to look at the program on their screens if they need to identify a song or control Internet radio. Logitech's new Z-10 speakers reduce that dependency by integrating a screen and touch-sensitive controls into one of the satellites. By connecting the speakers to the computer through USB and installing (currently Windows-only) software, listeners can see exactly see and control tracks played from a number of music jukebox programs, including iTunes, WinAmp, and Windows Media Player. The Z-10 speakers can also be cued to four Internet radio presets and displays general system information when not playing music. Auxiliary input and headphone jacks allow the Z-10 to accept more conventional audio as well. Logitech ships its new speakers in September for $150. See a full-sized photo after the jump.
