Consumers have two primary options for high-quality home audio: sound bars and surround sound speaker systems. Sound bars have their place, but tend to be television-centric with a highly directional design. Surround sound systems are the opposite, shedding the directional limitation by dispersing the audio across multiple speakers commonly placed on different sides of a room. One of the latest consumer-level sound systems to hit the market is Logitech’s Z337 Bold Sound with Bluetooth speaker system, but is it worthy of your entertainment (or computer) room?
Logitech’s new Bold Sound system has three components: two small right and left satellite speakers and a large subwoofer. Assembling the system takes three or four minutes — you’ll spend more time figuring out where to put the speakers — and simply involves plugging the two small speakers into the subwoofer. A 3.5mm audio cable connects your television or desktop computer to the subwoofer; you can also use an RCA cable for devices that require it.
