Logitech today introduces the world's first 5.1 speaker system that meets the THX standard and incorporates wireless rear speakers - the Z-5450. These digital speakers are ideal for living rooms or offices as their installation does not involve the transmission of many wires. This is the first step on the way to eliminating the need for cables and moving to clean environments. Each of the rear and wireless speakers contains its own amplifier and receiver and all that is needed to operate them is a power source in their installation area. Speaker power - 315 watts RMS and they include 7 different types of connections (can and are intended to be used as speakers for the Home Cinema system and not just as computer speakers) and support for Dolby Digital, DTS, and DTS 96/24 standards.
