Excellent speakers. The bass is amazing and the sound quality is great. The addition of a aux port on one of the speakers is also incredibly convenient. Only not so good side would be that the subwoofer is incredibly large. But given that these came out so long ago, I suppose that's to be expected.
Quality Sound, lots of power
For 2.1 sound out of the PC, these speakers are worth considering. I purchased these last summer and they are fantastic. Love the sound quality. More output power than you need for a PC as well.
I have also used this product as stand alone speakers for my DVD player.
As these speakers only have an analogue input, I used an HDMI Audio Extractor. A low cost item available on E-Bay.
Would highly recommend these speakers however you must shop around. They differ in price here downunder by approx $40AUD.
Great speakers for money
I purchased these speakers to upgrade from old Logitech computer speakers with static noise. I am really happy with them, bass is great, speakers have great sound quality. To be honest i was not expected them to be this good seeing I only paid $130.00.
I purchased them from Officeworks tax time onsale for a bargain. Crank them up and turn up the bass with no distortion. Great for PC games or music.

Subwoofer great, satellite speakers bad
The bottom line of this speaker system is the subwoofer alone at the price would be good value for money. The problem is you can't use the subwoofer with anything other than the satellite speakers as it uses a fixed non-modifiable wiring system meaning that you're stuck with what you buy, unless you're willing to deconstruct the satellite speakers and rewire them to decent speakers, and even if you did this, the crossover to the subwoofer maybe too high and is unadjustable. When listening to the satellite speakers alone, they sound like an aver...age set of Notebook computer speakers, however they are much louder. The middle upper too high range is not so bad but they lack terribly in the mid to mid lower range, meaning that they don't bridge the gap between speaker and subwoofer. This is not that unusual in this style of satellite/subwoofer speaker system and is really disappointing, because if they did, they would sound spectacular for the money. There is one advantage in that, because the speakers are relatively small they will fit quite nicely on a computer desktop. As far as what's available as computer speakers in this size and price range, there honestly isn't anything that's likely to do much better, and if you're just after a wicked base you'll be happy. The speaker system is designed mainly for computers, I bought them to listen to music. It will probably sound good when listening to movies on a computer, especially those like the Pacific Rim that have a lot of low rumbling base effects. There's also plenty of volume, so much so that you could easily annoy your neighbours. If you're not musically fussy like I am (if I had the money I would buy a $50,000 audiofile system) you'll probably be happy with this system. It stills meets the Logitech, good value for money criteria. If you're into any kind of music that fits into the doof doof profile of music, don't buy them, however you'll have to spend a lot more money!

Excellent system for the price
I got my system from umart online and it is a wicked system. I absolutely enjoy it. The treble is not as crisp as it should be but that's due to not having any dedicated tweeters which I think would make this system the BEST system under $350 or more. The bass is punchy and deep and is not at all hollow. It produces really deep and powerful bass and looks amazing. The only thing I would like to see with this unit is tweeters. Speaker cables need to be a lot longer too. I bought this to use in the lounge room and there's not enough speaker cable...to even be able to put the speakers to either side of my entertainment unit. If you get yours and the bass does not sound right, try putting the subwoofer in another spot as this can affect the sound the sub puts out but that's the same with any setup. This is my second set of Logitech speakers. My first were a pair of Z3 speakers and they were amazing too. Remember that you do get what you pay for. Getting a pair of Logitech 2.1 speakers for $70 are not going to sound the same as these speakers. Remember price reflects research and development. Don't cheap out for the lesser models because they will have lesser sound quality. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is because of the lack of crispness when it comes to treble and lack of cable length. Bass: 5/5 Mid: 5/5 Treble: 4/5 Quality: 5/5 Ease: 5/5 Cable length: 3/5 Total: 27/30
I recently purchased a set of these speakers as a replacement for a set which were not quite loud enough.
What a revelation the Logitech speakers have been to me.
The volume can be turned up enough so that the sound fills the entire home with little or no distortion, the base is powerful and the speakers are easy to set up and simple to use when adjusting bass, treble and volume.
Anyone seeking a great sounding set of computer speakers with easy to use controls at a reasonable price would be well advised to give these a try.
Thumping bass. Mids and highs not as loud as I hoped
This is not a good upgrade from X-530 or X-540 5.1 speakers if you're after volume. There's a bit more bass if you want that but the highs and mids are actually less loud. It was a bit of a disappointment. It's also heavier and larger, but there are less wires to set up. Finally you get the odd bit of a brief crackle/pop in the highs at times when they're up loud. These are okay if you get them at a discount but I'm not thrilled with them

Beefy sound combined with clarity and stylish looks
Old 15W stereo speakers finally died. Looked at Logitech range and found the Z623 looked good and once was set up and plugged in sounded great. Set up was easy. The bass speaker box is bulky (roughly 30 x 30 x 30cm), housing the bass speaker and power connection, but found a spot for it on the top shelf of our narrow computer desk. The system has THX certification which is an unknown phenomenon to me. A quick search found youtube clips to test the system including the range of the bass. The system has a true Cinematic sound, although only stereo, but MUCH MORE than i expected for the price. Great for watching movies, Netflix and mp3 tracks. I highly recommend.
Absolutely love the system
I have Had my system for a couple of years, and i am constantly telling my friends how good they are.
I also run my TV through the system and nevet felt the need for a sound bar, much more expensive, As well as my computer being my music centre. Truly quality sounds.
The best in its class !!
Budget people like me never got such an amazing deal !! I think and choose "budget", not because I can't afford it but I think its not worth of spending hundreds of dollars on Pc/laptop speakers. This product Z623 really changed my view on desktop speakers. Worth every penny !! Buy it in A$120-A$150 range and you won't regret. As a customer, I think we need to support the design and production of such quality speaker systems.
Don't look any further. These speakers pack a massive punch without producing a tinny noise at high volume, not much to say very happy. The bass produces a very clear sound at all levels of volume. Very easy to setup, 5 mins at most. I see complaints about the cord between left and right speaker being to short but i haven't found this an issue. They sit either side of my monitor perfectly,
Boon for BASS Lovers
This speaker houses a powerful BASS system.
If you love bass, just go for it blindly. This speaker can shake your windows.
And there might be lot of complaints from your neighbors. :)
And it is THX certified, so that it is ideal for watching action packed movies.

Centrecom Logitech Speakers Bargain
Centrecom emailed me their latest special prices on a range of products, as usual. I noticed they had a great price on: Logitech Z623 2.1 THX Speakers. So I snapped them up. They arrived within a couple of days and my son plugged them in to my main PC for me on the weekend. I must say they are Fantastic. The Bass response is incredible and even when you crank up the volume they don't distort the music. If you appreciate great sound reproduction, buy a set of these speakers for your Desktop PC.
Fantastic speakers !
Perfect set of speakers for anyone wanting to buy a sub-$200 set. They really bring the roof down with their loudness and clarity at any volume. I've tried them on the THX test site... Perfect! Bought at Officeworks for the standard price of $137. Other outlets are trying to sell them for $150+
Look no further
Best speakers I've ever owned. Was the closest I could get to high quality speakers without spending too much money. If there are any cons it would be just the fact that it would not be suitable for small desk spaces. The subwoofer takes up quite abit of space and can be awkward to position if you have limited space. The cords are really stiff but aren't huge problems compared to the pros of the sound quality!!
Questions & Answers
Just purchased these speakers. The volume control only lowers sound can not totally turn volume down is this normal?
I have Kawai ES 100 digital piano with 2 x 6 watt inbuilt speakers and 2 x 3.5 mm headphone sockets. The inbuilt speakers are not powerful enough for a large room. My question is , would the Z623 system be suitable for playing in a small hall say 15 to 20 people?.
Would appreciate your help,
Many thanks BarrieV
I would think they would be suitable if you are only playing to an audience of 15 to 20 people (I was a professional musician for many years). Though I am not sure they would have the dynamic range you would be after with a digital piano. However, for a small performance on a budget, you should be fine.
