The Logitech Z-5500 speaker system is a 505 watt 5.1 surround sound speaker set intended for use with a PC computer. They offer a great audio experience when watching movies or playing games on your computer, but they can also be used as speakers for your home theatre. When they are connected to a TV, you can get a similar surround sound experience as when connected to your computer with analogue and digital connection setups. An analogue set-up will give you stereo or Dolby Pro Logic sound, while a digital set-up will give you full DTS or Dolby Digital sound.
