Many of the speaker reviews for this site have been multimedia speakers meant for a desktop computer. This time, we're going to be looking at a different class of speakers which are meant for a slightly different purpose. The Audioengine 5 is a speaker system meant for listening to music from an iPod music player.

Having taken a look at many of the audio products in Logitech's multimedia speaker line, Logitech has again introduced another multimedia speaker set for gamers on a budget. It is called the X-530.

Although Logitech currently has other 5.1 multimedia speakers available, this speaker set is different than the others because it contains the newly introduced FDD2 satellite technology designed by Logitech to bring bigger and better sound.
Let's find out how well this speaker set sounds compared to Logitech's higher end models such as the Z-5300.
