When you go to pull the Z Cinema system out of the packaging, you'll see that the subwoofer is wrapped in plastic and gets added support from two black, molded-plastic pieces. The one on the right is just there for support, but the one on the left is where the two speakers are located, along with all the accessories.
When you pull the subwoofer out of the plastic wrap, you'll see how beautiful it really is and how elegant Logitech wanted the Z Cinema speaker system to look. The front has a glossy black paint job with a silver border. The bass port on the side of the subwoofer is very large and is painted black to match the rest of the box. On the rear of the subwoofer is where you plug in your speakers, as well as the power cord. The heatsink on the back of the subwoofer is very large, so you know that this speaker must be working hard.
Now let's take a look at what was in the black plastic mold that was protecting the subwoofer during the shipping process. When you open it up, you find the two speakers, as well as the remote control, instruction manual, USB cable, and included software.
The speakers are very elegant looking and match the subwoofer very well, which helps make the Logitech Z Cinema speaker system more desirable to consumers. The remote control has a bunch of buttons on it that you will need to review before claiming to be a pro at using the remote. The speakers do not have buttons or knobs on them; they are controlled only by the remote and the included software. Plugging in the speakers is the same as with any other three-speaker setup.
Enough with merely looking at the speakers, let's get the software installed and listen to these things in action!
