Hi Im new to the whole home theatre thing...but I found these "Logitech Z-5500"

You can check it out here http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/products/details/US/EN,CRID=2,CONTENTID=9486

But my question is how do I make them work on my TV and my Xbox 360 and stuff? And what cables or things would I need thanks!

z5500 takes 6.1 direct analog in or coaxial digital in or optical digital in, as well as side input (aux)

the 6.1 direct analog in can also be changes via a switch to 3x stereo inputs.


to connect from tv to it, you will need to use two of RCA->3.5mm mono plug from TV's monitor audio out to one of the 3 sterep inputs on z5500 (remember to change from 6.1 direct analog to 3x stereos)


to connect xbox/xbox360/ps2, you can use optical input (if xbox has high-def/advance AV adapter with optical out), or from xbox360/ps2 (i am not sure if xbox 360 has optical out built in or not).

IF you don't have the option to use optical output on xbox/xbox360. you can use the similar set up with TV (as mentioned above) PLUS an adapter to connect the xbox/xbox360's audio plug to the 2x RCA->3.5mm mono's RCA plug. the adapter you need is the RCA socket->RCA socket.



Hope this help.

(p/s: do you have z5500? or are you getting one? there's a new one z5450 with wireless surround speakers (rear). looks good for me, and powerful enough for a small-medium room size set up. I'm debating between z5500 and z5450, but inclining toward z5450 because of less wires/cable to go around room)
