Sound quality compared to previous model, Z5500?

Exactly, I completely agree with stranded. Why isn't the system put into context with some competing products and its previous generation? These might just as well be the same thing with a face lift. The Z5500 seem a bit more stylish and living room friendlier to me though.

But if I use PowerDVD 14 through analog inputs, I can have decoded DTS-HD and Dolby Digital HD... right?

Is there any new model coming up in this range ?

I don't know whether Powerdvd could support Dolby Digital HD since I never used it before. Macgo could support this format.

I just wanted to wade into this review because I've now got both units side by side. The Masterpiece but poorly manufactured Z5500's and the new Z906 Logitech speaker sets. Sadly the downsizing of the subwoofer cabinet and subwoofer itself does it no favours.

The ZX5500's subwoofer reaches noticeably lower frequencies and NEVER EVER distorted, she just kept soldiering on with some epic excursion and teef smashing bass to boot.

The Z906's in comparison? The bass isn't anywhere near as strong down low and the over-simplification of the controls is absolutely abysmal. Long gone are the days of having a beautifully weighted volume control knob which was both a joy to use and to spin to maximum whenever the moment took you.

On both units I used the Asus Xonar DSX pci-e sound card and an optical connection to the speakers, so be fair on them both, the sound production environment was kept the same by using the same songs at the same volume levels... speaking of levels - I miss 'Music' mode on the Z5500's.

My Z5500's died after nearly 8 years usage.
I can't see the Z906's hanging on as long sadly...

Just to add my thoughts on this...

I got a set of the Z906 a few months ago.
I have been using altec Lansing ADA995 setup for a good 10 years or so now and they are flawless, I just wanted to go Digital.
The Z906 are abysmal junk.
They are not even in the same league as the Altec Lansings.
The Logitech are back in the box.

I am not one bit impressed by them.

I have tried them on a handful of my PCs, using a few varations of SoundCard.

Creative Recon3D, Z and ZxR
Asus Strix, D2X and Essence

I have also tried Analog, Digital AUX and Digital Optical, in 2 and 5.1 Audio and, as I said... Unimpressed.
