Logitech G51 Surround Sound Speaker for the Gamer in You

Logitech have expanded their G-series speakers with the G51 Surround Sound Speaker System. The G51 is a 5.1 speaker system featuring 360-degree surround sound with dual Matrix modes, that Logitech claims will give you a more immersive gaming experience. Logitech’s dual Matrix technology creates a 5.1 surround-sound experience from any common two-channel stereo source.

“The G51 delivers an immersive surround-sound experience, but it goes far beyond that for gamers,” said Jef Holove, general manager and vice president of Logitech’s audio business. “Surround sound is a competitive advantage in true 5.1 games, plus the system also offers two Matrix surround modes for classic stereo games or music. For online players, the G51 features headphone and microphone jacks with independent mute controls. And, the system was designed to allow modders to easily customize the satellite speakers with their favorite game art or to match their gear. In short, the G51 is authentic gaming equipment.”

Other features:
155 watts of total RMS
Frequency Directed Dual Driver (FDD2) technology
Control pod that includes both headphone and microphone jacks
Precision dual mute controls (mute the game audio, or mute only the microphone – or both)

The Logitech G51 Surround Sound Speaker System is expected to be available in October for a suggested retail price of $199.99
