Switzerland-based peripheral manufacturer Logitech International S.A. released the Logitech Z-5500 in 2004 as a 5.1-channel speaker system that can be used with electronic products such as personal computers, televisions, and CD, DVD and portable digital multimedia players. At its release, Logitech gave the Z-5500 a manufacturer's suggested retail price of £259.90. In March 2011, Logitech released the Logitech Surround Sound Speakers Z906, effectively ending production of the Z-5500. However, customers can still purchase the Z-5500 at certain retail outlets.
