Hands on: Logitech Speaker System Z323

Posted in Review by Conner Flynn on September 21st, 2009

Hands on: Logitech Speaker System Z323Good speaker systems are hard to find. Especially if you want a small form, with big sound. And bass is usually disappointing in these small systems. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been disappointed with speakers that don’t deliver. So I decided to give Logitech’s Z323 a try.

These speakers are acoustically engineered to project audio evenly in all directions, not just one. The idea is that you hear the full range of sound throughout a room. Another interesting feature is the down-firing woofer designed to deliver rich, deep bass. The two satellite speakers claim to produce warm mid-range tones and crisp high notes. You can plug in your Logitech Squeezebox, gaming console, iPod or DVD player. So what did we think of the Z323? Read on.

Plug & Play: wireless speaker system

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2008

Plug & Play: wireless speaker system
The idea behind this PLUG + PLAY wireless speaker system is that it would make all of your music available, regardless if it is stored on cell phones, PCs or MP3 players. That would be pretty damn convenient. The transparent speakers deliver high sound quality and also blend into most interiors at the same time. Audio files would be transmitted from a device and PLAY via the small PLUG elements. The plugs would be compatible with many different mp3 players, computers, cell phones and other devices. The end result is a system of speakers with a bluetooth receiver, and plugs as well as a bluetooth sender. Charging would be via the plug dock on the side of the speaker.

There is also a transparent LCD-display in the glass, that gives you the usual information about song title, equalizer, etc. This is a pretty fascinating concept, even though we won’t be seeing it anytime soon.
