Good bang for your buck!

Pros:Easy setup.
Separate volume and power switch on a speaker that a pod.
Solid speaker construction.

Cons:Left front speaker code is a bit short.
No registration required. Might be bad for warranty.

The Bottom Line: Best bang/price (MSRP $100) for your buck. 



I looked everywhere for a replacement 5.1 computer speakers.  The speakers I was replacing was the Creative Labs Inspire 5.1 5300.  I bought them ten years ago.  The power/volume pod (switch) finally shorted out.  I searched everywhere for a replacement switch without any luck.  I did some research on the Internet about 5.1 computer speakers with the idea of, what is the best bang for my buck and that speakers should last more than five years.  It came down to either the Creative Labs Inspire T6160 (MSRP $70) or the Logitech Z506 (MSRP $100).    After reading and watching reviews, I purchased the Logitech.  For an extra $30, you get a lot better speaker system.  The one thing that I liked about the Logitech over the Creative Labs is the Logitech has a separate volume and power switch located on front right speaker.  This is a lot better than having them on a pod as the Creative Labs does.  The pod was the main reason I had to replace the speakers.
Setup was very easy, every cord is color coded. Although I found that the front left speaker cord is a bit short.  The input wires could have been a bit longer and they could have been combined together as one cable with three inputs.
The sound is amazingly clear and the subwoofer has a good kick to it.  Even though the subwoofer is off the floor!
Most sound card will have a sound manager for setting up and testing speakers.  Check the manufactures website for an updated driver and/or manager.  A good test for any 5.1 speakers, are finding THX or Dolby surround sound files on the Internet.  Some files are for testing bass and others are for testing the surround sound feature.   
One thing I did notice, that 5.1 speaker systems are becoming more difficult to find.  Most stores, local and the large box stores, only carry one or two systems and they are usually not setup as a demo.
