Logitech has announced a new interactive 2.0 speaker system that has a built-in Media display and touch sensitive controls.
Logitech Z-10 Interactive 2.0 Speaker System Has Built-In Media Display, Touch-Sensitive Controls.
Called the Logitech Z-10 Interactive 2.0 Speaker System, the new interactive speaker system shows digital-music track information, a clock, volume and more.
“Until now, PC speakers have simply delivered sound”, said Jef Holove, Logitech´s vice president of product marketing for audio. “The Z-10 speakers aim to incite more of the senses — sight, touch and sound — with their media display, touch-sensitive controls and premium audio.”
By putting touch-sensitive controls on the face of the Z-10 speakers, Logitech says that it "has eliminated the need for people to toggle between applications to control their music on their computer monitor".
Users will also be able to use integrated speaker controls to adjust volume, treble and bass, and navigate music tracks with play, pause, skip forward and back buttons just as they would with a portable music player or a traditional stereo system.
The Logitech Z-10 speakers also have four Internet radio preset buttons located on the speakers' touch sensitive panel.
The 9.7-inches tall, 4.5-inches wide and 4.7-inches deep speakers feature an integrated 1-inch tweeters and 3-inch woofers on each satellite as well as a built-in amplifier.
The Logitech Z-10 Interactive 2.0 Speaker System will be available in the US and Europe beginning in September. Its suggested retail price in the US is $149.99. No price has yet been set for the UK.
