Despite what Apple and others tell you, those built-in speakers on your MacBook really aren’t too great. The iMac? Forget about it. If you’re after really booming sound, you need to invest in a new pair of speakers for your setup.
Logitech has long made some of our favorite desktop audio accessories and today it has unveiled its newest creation. The Z537 Powerful Sound with Bluetooth is a wired and wireless 2.1-channel stereo system that promises to do both, and do it well.
There are a number of reasons to invest in a desktop stereo system. Trending products like Amazon Echo and Google Home offer smart functionality, but the audio quality on each leaves something to be desired. Having a true 2.1-channel system really is the way to go. Sure, you’re missing out on dedicated skills from Alexa, but we’re ultimately talking about two different product categories here and both can exist in the same home.
Logitech’s new Z537 system addresses your audio woes in a couple of different ways. Gone are the days of a wired setup fitting the bill. Bluetooth is a requirement for most users these days, as having the ability to wireless beam music to your setup is an expectation.
You’ll be able to connect to Logitech’s new speaker setup via 3.5mm and RCA inputs, as well. Ideally, you’re jamming out on a Mac, then switch over to your iPhone’s Bluetooth connection and easily play music without any required unplugging of the AUX cord.
That’s why we’ve created the new Logitech Z537 Powerful Sound With Bluetooth. With the new Logitech Z537 Powerful Sound with Bluetooth speakers, you have the flexibility of playing music from multiple devices and multiple platforms, and you don’t have to swap cables or re-route wires to do it. You can just pair your device using Bluetooth, and start streaming.
The speakers themselves deliver 120W of peak power, with the 30W subwoofer handling the low-end of your favorite tunes. Logitech includes its popular volume control knob, which is a nice touch for those that like a bit more control over audio levels than a keyboard might offer. This is also where wireless connectivity is handled, with a small button and light signifying if everything is up and running. The subwoofer has its own dedicated control settings on the back.
Based on this Amazon listing, Logitech is expected to sell its latest speaker system for $130. This puts it squarely within range of popular computer speaker systems from Mackie and others, many of which do not include a dedicated subwoofer.
