Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Mix and match

The overall balance of the system is a bit bass heavy straight out of the box, but you can calm this down a bit by adjusting the volume level of the subwoofer. But while music is generally punchy and detailed, it lacks some of the mid-range finesse that you get on more expensive home cinema kit. Overall, though, for the price, this system puts in a sterling performance.

Logitech Z906

Sound choice for gamers

Verdict

It’s a shame the controls aren’t more immediate and that it lacks features such as a HDMI input, but for those looking for a system to use primarily with a PC or a games console, the Z906 is still a good bet. ®
