Logitech z623 2.1 Speaker Review
The subwoofer weighs 7KG of the 9KG package weight, so we were thrilled to see that Logitech have packaged it in a cardboard cradle with robust handles. Infinitely easier to remove from the packaging than merely placing it in there. We can't be the only people who have found unboxing certain things to be a two or three person job, so having the ability to lift it out on your own is definitely worthy of a grateful nod in Logitech's direction.
The speakers are both hard-wired. The left speaker has a standard speaker connection, whilst the right hand one contains the controls and is run off a very firm cable with a VGA style adaptor on the end.
There is no denying that the design is all about the speaker, with no fabric cover to hide them from your gaze. We like the looks a lot as they mix soft curves with a sturdy aesthetic thanks to the all-metal speaker protector and visible bolt heads.
The right hand speaker has the controls with a power button, volume dial and bass dial all within easy reach. As we'll get to in our conclusion though, you might not want to fiddle with them too much.
Subwoofers by their very nature are boxy things, but when you contrast it to the gorgeous curves of the satellites it's a jarring juxtaposition. If you have tucked the subwoofer away you'll be pleased with the headphone jack and input jacks appearing on the side of the right hand satellite, nicely within easy reach.
Look at the size of the speaker in the subwoofer. Big speaker, big grill, hopefully big bass.
A bass box would be nothing without a shiny port somewhere in it and on the z623 it is all present and correct.
Round the business end we have a 'eight' power cable input, the two very different outputs for the speakers, as well as AUX and 3.5mm input jacks.
