The Good Outstanding audio quality; streamlined, efficient design; adapter for game consoles.

The Bad Upward-firing satellites not adjustable; hardwired cables.

The Bottom Line Logitech's Z-2300s have been on the market for more than half a decade, but these PC speakers still pack a sonic wallop.

Logitech Z-2300

Editors' Note: Due to competitive changes in the marketplace, we have lowered the rating on this product.

Although they weren't perfect, we liked Logitech's old Z-2200 speakers an awful lot. We were a bit annoyed by their use of hardwired speaker cables instead of quick-connect jacks (a feature that has not changed), but the overall performance of the set was spectacular. And while we admit we were skeptical about the attempt to mess with a classic, Logitech's new Z-2300 2.1 speakers improve upon the originals more than we thought possible.

A lot of the core specs remain the same between generations. The Z-2300 retains the Z-2200's THX certification and speaker-frequency response (35Hz to 20KHz) and the subwoofer's 120 watts of floor-rattling power. The remote still offers headphone access and the standard sub and volume controls. Design changes abound, however, and they're more than just cosmetic.
