Chances are that you someone who has a nice computer but uses terrible speakers. You know, those cheap stereo speakers that come free with a purchase or you buy for $15 as an afterthought. Similarly, you probably know even more people who listen to their digital music through the speakers on their laptop. Some of these people don't care about their sound quality, others don't have the room for a speaker system, but too many of them simply think that they can't afford quality sound.
Logitech is trying to change all of this with their X-540 speakers. This kit retails for $99 but packs in a considerable amount of features and functionality. This kit is not for audiophiles, but if you want solid sound at a reasonable price Logitech may have the product for you.
Logitech smartly realized that people who want to spend under $100 on their audio equipment need something that will work under a number of circumstances. They took this into account when designed the X-540 and made sure it was compatible with PC/Mac, CD player, portable music devices, DVD players, and video games systems like Playstation and Xbox. With some playing around you can even get it to play the sound from your television. In order to get the most from all devices Logitech's Matrix mode allows the X-540 to create 5.1 surround sound from any 2-channel source.
