Logitech's new Z Cinéma 180-watt desktop speaker system with subwoofer take a discrete 5.1 digital input signal and apply SRS TruSurround to make it all surroundy without needing the center channel or extra speakers. These could even be good enough for a bedroom HDTV, not just a PC. Sure, some audiophiles say that this is no way to enjoy real cinema sound, but this virtual-surround fad is just not going away. The Z Cinéma connects with USB for 24-bit sound, has a convenient headphone jack and comes with a Media Center remote. Total price: $300.
