Fremont, Calif. - Logitech has added four new PC speaker
systems that feature omni-directional acoustics to create a larger sweet spot.

Unlike standard PC speakers that use forward-firing drivers, the
new systems feature drivers that face forward and Logitech’s three-piece Z523 is a 2.1-channel system with a down-firing subwoofer.backward in each satellite.
This "360-degree sound" helps project audio evenly in all directions, according
to the company.

Logitech's Z520 system, shipping this month, puts out 26 watts of
RMS power, with a frequency response of 70 Hz to 20 kHz, from two 2-inch dome
drivers.

It has 3.5 mm auxiliary input and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

frequency response.

It has a dual RCA jack, 3.5mm primary input, 3.5mm aux input and
a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The satellites have on-speaker volume controls. They measure 5.2 by
3.4 by 7.7 inches and the sub is 9.5 by 9 by 10 inches.
