I currently have The Z-5500s. Totally great for using to listen to music off my laptop on the desk.

My question is I want to move them (maybe- seeking your input) and using them as a home theatre setup. I really don't want to spend a whole lot of money on a higher end setup.

I could see myself spending money on a decent 2.1 setup with a subwoofer, but not an all out 7.1 setup. So I guess the question is will these be preferred to a 2.1 setup???
Will I be totally disapointed in these for home theatre use, and gaming? I don't need ultra high end, but just something decent or above average.

While the Z-5500 does a great job on your desk, as you mention, they are going to be seriously lacking if they become a dedicated home theater solution. You are taking a product that was designed to play well in a few square feet and then attempting to introduce them into a vastly larger playing space...it's not going to work out that great.

You'd be best off buying a decent 2.1 setup, or bying a starter 5.1 setup, like the Polk RM6750 or the Energy Take 5.0 system. You'd get much fuller sound than you'd get out of the Z-5500 in a HT setting.

Thanks for the input! I also need a BR player as well. Would you recommend something like this?

Or would something like
http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-HT-S5300...0649045&sr=1-1

Be much better suited? The second option costs more money (Obviously I'd have to buy a BR player as well).

The second option is a much better decision than the Panasonic HTiB. The home theater in a box comes with crappy speakers, a crappy receiver, and the inability to upgrade in the future, as everything is running at odd impedance levels and has proprietary connections, meaning you cant ever change the speakers or use the speakers with a new receiver.

Both systems do support the newest audio codecs (Dolby TrueHD, DTS-MA...etc...) which is nice.

Do you really need 7.1 though? Only about 5% of new Blu-ray's are encoded in 7.1 at this point, and if you don't have a big enough room, 7.1 is going to be a waste. It would be a better recommendation to buy a better 5.1 system.

How much are you looking to spend overall?

I bought the Sammy BR Player off Woot today... So that problem is solved.

And yes, I'd probably agree: I don't need 7.1.

Honestly I don't want to spend a whole lot- I just want something that sounds decent, good quality. It doesn't have to be exceptional, just better than the Home Theatre in a Box cheapo systems, if you get my drift.

Edit, And I probably want a receiver that has 3-4 HDMI inputs and an output... That way all my devices go straight to the receiver so it can output proper 5.1, and the TV still gets the HDMI signal. Monoprice has a great $50 solution for this but it's been out of stock for a couple months.

Edit 2, I should probably note floorstanding speakers are probably out of the question. Lack of places to put them, mainly. I'll try to get a sketch of the room.

The Pioneer VSX-520 has 3 HDMI, the 820 has 4 -

Then you could do the Polk RM 6750 -
http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-Cha...0653682&sr=1-1

And you're only spending about $450, and you've got yourself an amazing starter 5.1 system that would blow HTiB out of the water.

Little satellite speakers like that will do OK? I just figured you guys would suggest bigger. But these would fill a room OK? That subwoofer deliver enough bass and all that (I know my Z-5500 has a 10", this one is just an 8")? Not really second guessing you, I just need to be sold on the idea

Here's the general layout. Measurements are all made up but they are rough. Should help give you an idea though. It also demonstrates why floor speakers won't work. They'd have to sit in FRONT of the TV and on the fireplace (the one on the fireplace would obviously be higher).

I used to use the RM6750 back in college and I know they can fill a small/med room quite well - I only suggest them because I don't know your budget! If you give a price point, it's easier to suggest thing that could work better for you.

The Polk's are larger drivers and also have independent tweeters, which allow them to handle more power, and also have better range through the audio spectrum.

The 5500 is also limited out to the use of its own device selector - a receiver is much more powerful and versitile.

If you have the logitech z-5500 and are happy with it I would continue to use if and save your money until you can spend more money.

I purchased my stuff when I was on a Budget of $450. Sony STR-DH700 and Polk RM6750. My living room is 13.5' x 14.75' which opens up on one side to my kitchen and I don't really need to crank the audio at all and I only keep the sub volume at halfway.

So could I use these speakers and just buy a receiver??? Would that be fairly decent?
How would the sub be powered then? It connects via a serial port of sorts to the little controller.

See, if I'm getting something, I'd probably lean more in that direction... Something under $500.
My main requirement for the receiver is getting something with 3-4 HDMI inputs though and one output.

You can't really connect the 5500 to a real receiver - I've read about some jerry-rigged ways of doing it in the past...all have yielded subpar results and don't really work very well.

Rob gave some good ideas...the Onkyo and Denon setups are very good for the money, and also give you the flexibility you desire with HDMI and the ability to upgrade the speakers in the future.

The Jamo suggestion is also very good, along with the RM6750. All of these would keep you in the $500 ballpark.

What about a receiver if doing the Jamo or Polk setups? And between the two of those- what would you suggest?

And out of all of Rob's suggestions, which would be preferred?

I've never heard the Jamo setup, but many people say it's a great setup. I just know from my experience that the Polk is really good.

You can't go wrong with the Pioneer's either for the receiver...any of the receivers listed in the thread are gonig to serve you quite well.

I personally choose the Polk's over Jamo cause Polk is a well known name in home audio and has been for awhile. Also the Polks are more sensitive so they take less power to drive and to get the same sound of

Also I plan to update my system to a 7.1 set-up and I'll upgrade the front speakers. In my sound testing/demoing there was no other 5.1 system that sounded better for the price


As for reciever something like the Sony STR-DH700, STR-DH800, or Pioneer VSX-519/520 or VSX-819/820 would be great first reicevers. You might beable to find a refurbished Onkyo RC-160 or refurbished Denon AVR-590

and Denon AVR1610

For $549

Thoughts? I think I might jump on it.

I wonder if the nay-sayers have actually heard this little system?

I got a Z-5500 a few years ago and put it in a make-shift theater at my old duplex. The room was 14' wide by 13' deep and the sound was good enough to keep me from feeling an immediate need to upgrade, letting me focus on other equipment. Actually it was far better than I expected.

I'm now using it in a temporary theater that is about 16' deep by 12' wide in my new house and it still fills the room with sound. Might not be as "full" as some people would like but I have no complaints. I'm picky about the sound in my music/mixing room and while I never assumed the Z-5500 would be top-notch in a theater, it was better than I expected and I've been content with it.

For mine I run HDMI to the PJ for video and optical to the Z-5500's mini receiver.

The only reason I'm finally planning on upgrading is because I want the receiver to switch HDMI, I want decoding for HD audio, and I want 7.1. Still, I'm in no hurry as the new addition/theater is still in the planning stages and this little Logitech system is still working just fine.

It was good enough to get another and put it in my folks' living room, they are also very happy with it.

I am going to VETO that set-up due to the Klipsch HD500. I found that set-up extremely over priced for what it was and lacked the power needed to fill a 14 x 14 listening room that I demo'd them in

If possible try and sound test speakers

Having previously owned the Z-680 (which in someways is the ancestor to the 5500) and seeing my brother own the 5500, I can say that I've heard this system numerous times.

And I know I can say for certian that I know that the system can't fill a room all that well. Small drivers coupled with no tweeters (I know they talk about their phase plug thingy, but a dedicated tweeter would be better) leads to not being able to pump out a lot of sound to fill a room. Like I first said, the system is great in small quarters, but once you get into a halfway decent sized room like the OP is discussing, they are going to sound dead and lifeless compared to some of the things being suggested.

Well it's basically buy the speakers and get the receiver free... Kindof might offset the "overprice" argument?

Plus my TV will be 9-10' away, and speakers width wise will be about 12' or so (see my diagram)

Well if you think Logitech speakers are "totally great" for listening to music, I can't imagine that you'd find any faults with them on movies either, lol.

That said, I'd imagine they are probably as good as some HTIBs out there, sure, so if you'd be getting a low-end HTIB anyway you might as well try out the Logitechs first.

Totally great IN THE OFFICE... I haven't tried them in a big room.
Regardless I jumped on the Klipsch and Denon deal at Amazon. The room isn't very big so they should work well. I even think I might mount the speakers a couple foot closer to the seating area anyway.

Hi guys, new to the thread, but with a lot of questions regarding z-5500 setup.

I wanted to find out what will happen if I hook the z-5500 speakers to my TV (TC-P50G15) using the "optical audio output" in the back.

I have many devices connected to this TV using a variety of inputs (3x HDMI, 1xCOMP)

Does this mean the TV will automatically determine which source to output onto its “optical audio output connector” which will then be connected to the z-5500 to get 5.1 surround sound?

Well it depends on the TV. Some older TVs will only output from that when they are receiving a DTV broadcast via the internal ATSC tuner. Newer TVs can parallel the input from an HDMI source (i.e. output the digital audio input from HDMI to the optical connector), but some will only parallel PCM and Dolby Digital (i.e. not DTS). Some won't do that though it all depends on your particular model--check the owner's manual.

I could be mistaken but I don't think any TV will output audio that was input via an analog connection--it only works for HDMI (and again not on all TVs).

Some won't do that though it all depends on your particular model--check the owner's manual.

I could be mistaken but I don't think any TV will output audio that was input via an analog connection--it only works for HDMI (and again not on all TVs).


No TV will pass through anything but 2.0 stereo from any source but the cable feed. HDMI, component, etc...everything gets reverted to 2.0 stereo. Only your direct feed from cable/sat/etc will get you 5.1 surround.

i really like using pc speaker for home theater because they're pretty compact, cheap, and you don't need a receiver. i use a klipsch 2.1 promedia for my samsung tv. it's connected via the headphone jack so i can still control the volume with my remote. it sounds fabulous in my mid size bedroom. i love it!

Thoughts? I think I might jump on it.
