Logitech X-540 Speakers

Music listeners and game players know that surround sound speakers are frequently underused; stereo sources effectively strip a 5.1 system of its advantages, and many spaces leave little room for the extra satellites. Logitech's announcement on Wednesday of its new X-540 speakers acknowledge this reality and present new options for the budget audiophile. A button on the main controller can toggle a matrix mode that simulates a 5.1 surround signal from any stereo output, putting the rear channels to better use. The satellites themselves are also more flexible than average and can be ceiling- or wall-mounted as well as stood upright. Logitech has also taken into consideration the common problem of placing the center speaker near an LCD display: a clip ships with the X-540 to mount the speaker on top of most flat-panel systems. Logitech says its new surround system delivers 70W of sustained power and should be available in November for $100. Click through for a photo of the clip mechanism.
