Logitech Announces Budget-Priced Surround Speakers

Logitech today announced the Logitech® X-540 speaker system, an affordable
surround-sound system designed for gamers, which solves two distinct
problems: The X-540 system enables people to enjoy the experience of
surround sound even with two-channel audio sources, by including matrix
surround-sound technology. And for those playing games using a flat-panel
display with no convenient place to set a center-channel speaker,
Logitech’s patent-pending integrated center-channel clip gracefully and
securely attaches the speaker atop the monitor, saving desk space.
With a dedicated center channel and acoustically matched front and rear

satellites, the Logitech X-540 system produces balanced surround sound. The

X-540 speakers use Logitech’s Frequency Directed Dual Driver™ technology.

This technology helps the speaker system produce richer sounds by having

two drivers in each satellite speaker. It also overcomes high-frequency

overlap that leads to uneven sound.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech X-540 speaker system is expected to be available in the U.S.

and Europe beginning in November. Its suggested retail price in the U.S. is

$99.99.
