The Logitech G51 Surround Sound speaker system should not be passed up if you are in the market for a new groove. As I mentioned earlier in the review, the system has two matrix's - a gaming and music matrix. I was forced to use them when I first installed Vista on my computer, because I was having problems with the drivers for my sound card and could only get two channel sound out of it. Although it was not as great at true 5.1 surround sound, the matrix's did work flawlessly and trick the ears into believing it was 5.1.
I also mentioned that the speakers can change skins - the satellite speakers have a clear plastic cover on them, which can be removed and a skin can be placed underneath. You can download the program to create the skins from Logitechs website.
I have always liked the fact that Logitech speakers as of late have utilized a control module, as it stops you from having to look for the speaker that has the volume control and it saves your head from getting banged around when adjusting the volume on your subwoofer. The fact that the center speaker can be mounted on your LCD monitor is also a tremendous plus. There is no need to hang an extra shelf to clear up desk space and you won’t get in trouble for putting more holes in the walls.
