Accessories and Entire System:
Included is a system controller, which allows you to adjust the speaker volume by channel, change matrix, mute the speakers, attach your headset and power the system on and off. The speaker to system cable is six feet long for ease of subwoofer placement.
The speaker casings are gold and black, which I felt was a good choice. Logitech has stayed with either pure black, or black and silver speakers for too long. These speakers also have an added feature - changeable skins, which will be addressed in the conclusion.
The hardest part of installing these speakers is trying to figure out where you are going to mount the rear speakers. The cords are about 15 feet long, so getting them behind you should not be a problem. All the speaker cables are color coded, so there is no problem trying to figure out which speaker goes where; I also like the fact that Logitech is using conventional colors for their RCA jacks. It was a great pain in the you-know-what to figure out where things went with my last speaker system, as the color coding was horrendous: blue for center, black for microphone, pink for front etc. Once installed, you will need to adjust the speakers to your liking. You will have two options. First, the speakers control center and then your sound card's software. Once you're done tweaking, your mission is complete.
