    Well, I have the Logitech Z-680 set (which preceded the Z-5500) and I'm quite happy with it. They were certainly among the best 5.1 PC speakers around at the time and I would suspect the Z-5500 would be even better.

    Two small caveats with regard to the Z-680, though (which might also apply to the Z-5500). The speakers produce a slight hiss which some people might find annoying. And the bass is pretty hefty - depending on where you live, you may wish to take your neighbours into consideration!

    I have the Z560's hooked up to my PC. These came before the Z5500's but offer very impressive sound indeed (certainly for a PC).

    A hiss is clearly audible at any semblence of volume, but I believe in my case that this may just be the PC sound card (SoundBlaster Live 5.1).

    Will agree with previous comment about bass, I have mine turned down before the signal is output from the PC otherwise it is just too much.

    The only point which I would make is that these speakers I am guessing may only have inputs for a PC, so you will possibly need to invest in some inexpensive adapter plugs to enable you to connect up your AV equipment.
