I have the logitech z5500. How would these compare in sound quality?.
$600 gets you a passable 5.1 receiver and the pioneer Andrew Jones speakers & a decent sub. Am I missing something here? Coming from someone who owned and loved a Logitech z5300 setup.

Hold up, that's a fantastic speaker combo, but it doesn't nearly get close to the power this set has . I originally was gonna get the SP-PK52FS set, an upgrade from my Log z623 setup?

Please explain. I am unable to locate any distinction between peak/RMS wattage on this set for the sake of comparision.
Here's my on the spot comp setup, but there's plenty of wiggle room in the $600 price to swap some things in and out: Yamaha RX-V383BL or Denon AVRS530BT - Amazon - $230 now, but you can find better/cheaper if you wait Harman Infinity Reference Sub - $170 2x pairs of the AJ - $60 each, regularly from Fry's Andrew Jones center - $20 - $80 depending on when/where you get it Speaker Wire - $20
A few more $ or more patience will land you 2x of the Andrew Jones towers for your fronts, if desired.
Absolutely love mine! received the two sets I purchased ahead of time and they are amazing! I may buy another set on e it drops again.
The speaker do fall into this odd category of too big to mount with keyhole articulating mounts and too small to fit side gripping articulating mounts...
What do other owners use to mount them?
The keyhole mount to the wall feels like leaved very little room for the wires, and would rattle without bottom rubber bumpers at least.
Can anyone that has purchased this drop in the past chime in with how long it took you to receive the product after it shipped? I am in the US.
Trying to gauge whether the transit time will be a week or 4 weeks.
Thank You :)

I got this shipped to me in 4 days from when the drop was scheduled to ship. Yes it works on 110 volt version 2017 model.
The system needs a little setup and works best using the analog inputs so that games split the output for center and surround properly. Otherwise you can use the optical toslink cable for DTS decoding etc. I had to turn up bass which affects the L/R speakers only and this ended up correcting a shallow sound out of the box uncorrected. Subwoofer level might even be best turned down a couple notches for some music. It hits hard!
Thanks!! It was supposed to ship the 10th it actually shipped the 4th (from TX) and will be arriving in Seattle on the 11th!! Can’t wait!!
Can I use this in Korea also? I mean this set support 220V.
PeterYoo
I need this answered for the opposite reason. When I looked up clearer images of the back of the unit they all show a 220v rating. Will this need a transformer to run on 110?
Sandalwood
This was a 110 volt version so no conversion unless running 220v system.
the cooling fins on rear is puny, on mine they fill top to bottom

Digital amps do not need a massive heatsink like an analog amp of old. While listening at moderate volume levels (40 on the control which seems less than half), I can put my hand on the puny heatsink, and it is warm only.
Correction the max volume level is 60 on the controller so this does not get as hot as you might think. I cranked it up by accident to test and ouch my ears. (Note this is my replacement computer setup as I had a Logitech 4.1 system for over a decade).
SWEEEEEET!
The grand irony of things lol Missed the last drop by 1 person, and now I have a need to purchase 2 of these sets lol... Lets go! Let's get this party started! :D
Where were all these requesters a few days ago? lol Hope this drop comes back pretty soon! :)

Its back!
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Thanks! I ordered 2 :) Really appreciate the quick comeback for this drop! <3
Well that sucked.. :( First drop I ever participate in and it doesn‘t even get 3 purchases... It was actually to be a birthday gift to me from my wife..
While I can appreciate systems like this for gaming, I have a 5.1 setup myself, I would suggest there are better ways. Generally you'll want to use HDMI out for audio through a 4k receiver (I'm running a Denon AVR2300 myself) which then drives a display and your speakers. The only limitation in that case would be the requirement for HDMI over Displayport and a limit of 60hz at 4k. The advantage would be support for HD audio formats and likely better sound quality overall depending on your choice of speakers.
Where this system would make sense is if you are running a single high refresh display where an AV Receiver would not work.

HDMI can pass higher resolution audio (ie Blu-Ray HD audio formats) where Toslink cannot. This isn't really an issue if you are just playing games where the OS generally does the separation of channels directly (ie not sending bitstream out).
SantiagoDraco
Gotch'a, thanks! I use HDMI on my home theater but toslink on my computer. I'm only using 3.1 out of the 5.1 setup for my computer though, and haven't noticed any issues.
What happens if we don’t get 3 people to join the drop?
Sandalwood
Thanks! I was looking for this but my search didn't turn it up Hmmmm. Thats unfortunate. I have shared it with some friends hoping at least 1 more would pick it up lol.
dammmn
Send to Canada, i will BUY right NOW!
Last 2 times you did this one it was between paychecks in a way I wasnt able to buy :(

We've all had times where we're tight between a couple of checks... it's no big deal. Maybe he just made a big payment on his house or car or other loan to get it paid off and couldn't justify dropping 6 bills on a speaker set. If he's scrounging between every check, that's one thing... but from what he said it doesn't sound like that's the case.

True true, Im not naver so I don't know his life.
Would this work as the main sound system for my girlfriend's TV? I've been meaning to get her a proper sound system and hook it up. Is it easy to hook up?
In terms of sound quality for music purposes, how do these compare to studio monitors such as the JBL LSR30x?
Corinth
Well, it's going to be a more "colored" sound. Things like the JBL LSR's and Yamaha HE series are not really for sitting and enjoying your music or movies, they're studio monitors. As opposed to bass you basically get this feeling that "bass was played, and it sounded like this", it gives you a pretty flat response curve, and a very narrow stereo field, so you've gotta position yourself in the sweet spot for decent audio.
This is going to be closer to a home theater system, but you're still better off building a quality 2.1 system for less money, in my opinion. The only exception being if you plan to use this for watching movies, in which case you're going to want a real AV receiver that can handle formats other than DTS.
Anyone is Canada that want the speakers without the Sub let me know. I'm selling them for a measley 200$ CAD. For 5 speakers including the center speaker. I could also ship to the US no biggie.
Thujan
In Canada and I might be interested, how do you want to figure this out?

As a former Z5500 and current S760D owner, since May of this year, I strongly suggest to anyone considering this same transition to absolutely go ahead and pull the trigger! This 5.1 system is in another league compared to the Z5500, trust me! I did expect a difference, but damn... the S760D honestly exceeded my expectations. This system sound very neutral and much MUCH cleaner than the Logitech, the biggest difference is in the mids and highs. Compared to the tweeterless Z5500 satellites, details you didn't know were there can be easily heard, the bass is even thicker and more "robust" so to say, while not overpowering the rest of the range, it's very nicely balanced. Only issue is the oddly shaped remote, which is very elongated and wobbles when pressing buttons on a flat surface. Also the market for used Z5500's is pretty much still alive, so you could easily sell them off. Believe me, you won't regret this purchase :)

How much did it cost on here? I've got a Z5500 which I enjoy but I keep hearing about how good the Edifier is.
Eldestructo
I bought my S760D system locally (I'm in Europe) for around $650 an year ago. Sold the Z5500 for $220 ish, couldn't be happier with the system :)
Does anyone know what the ideal subwoofer crossover frequency is for this system?
Is anyone having popping issues? I have run latencyMon and its coming up clean. I wasn't have this issue with my old speakers and no driver settings have changed.

Yes, mine pop randomly whether they have an audio source or not while powered on.

I contacted Edifier about the issue in my country and they shipped me a new subwoofer no questions asked. Must be a common issue.
I just don't see the value at $599.99 when one could buy a Denon S510BT and a set of Energy Take Classic 5.1 speakers for 529.99 with free two-day shipping. I guess for those with ONLY analog outs and space concerns would prefer something like the edifiers but personally I prefer my PC hooked to a receiver/speakers.
I bought the 2.1 edition of these in 2014 from NXIC for $299.79 without tax and free shipping. Before those, I purchased the Telex EV SonicXS 2.1. I looked at many options before finding the EV's on sale at CompUSA on a sale isle (Yes CompUSA...old school). I used them for about 6 years as over the top computer speakers until one day they died.Those speakers BANGED so I couldn't look back when replacing them. In fact, I looked hard for those exact speakers, but they were way past their life cycle. In my search, I saw the Edifier S730, which is the same as the S760D, just a 2.1 system. I have this system connected to my everyday recreation PC. I watch Youtube music videos, listen to music (way too loud) and monitor any sounds that come from my pc. With these, the basslines and kick drums are deep. When I fire up music, they do not disappoint. In fact, I use these more like a main stereo unit than just computer speakers. With so many streaming services, music sources are endless. The only con is I find the speakers to be very flat out of the box. Easy fix though: EQ. I brightened these up by raising the 8k and 16k frequencies; punched the bass and tuned the mids. Now these sound like bad ass computer speakers! I crank these without getting distortion. Also the bass stays tight, even at high levels. Sometimes woofers get "loose" and "muddy" as you raise the volume. Not these. Unfortunately these are older than the bluetooth craze, so no wireless connection, but there is an aux input so you can add any device with a line out. If you use them with a connected device, like with a PC, you won't even care. By the way, did I mention bass? Yeah.....apartment dwellers expect a knock from neighbors often if you crank these

That's the ugliest subwoofer I've ever seen. I wouldn't want that anywhere I could see it.
inmytaxi
neat
Does anyone know what type of cable can be used to extend the control pod unit? I tried a VGA extension cable and that did not work.
mst3kld
Not sure if it will work but try a rs232 extension https://www.amazon.com/Your-Cable-Store-25-DB9/dp/B001SIPBH0
What is the weight and dimension of the full package?
Trounces the Logitech Z5500 set?? Wow.. I love my Z5500 set so much I had to jump on this.! I just checked this same set out on Amazon and it's selling for 899$ usd. What a buy!

My Z5500 is also still running perfectly fine, I bought them in 2006.
Peachy
Yup. Exactly. Some day I'll get these...
Is there an option on these to upmix a stereo signal option on the controller like there is on the Logitechs?
Mr Jones next door is gonna be pissed.
*whistle. This is a heck of a deal, maybe the best on here lol.
I'm more of a headphone guy, out of necessity. But if I had the space and sound freedom I would get a set like this and never worry about audio again.
