Logitech has revealed its latest PC speaker system. The G560 PC Gaming Speakers feature LIGHTSYNC technology to create an added sense of immersion during gameplay.
The 2.1 audio system is rated for 240 Watts Peak (120 Watts RMS) and incudes a down-firing subwoofer and two satellite speakers with lightweight, high-strength metallic drivers.

Likewise, the effects can be customized across four zones with both front and rear light projection and around 16.8 million colors. And outside of gaming, the G560 offers an Audio Visualizer for lighting effects during music as well, including a soft breathing effect for low volume playback and pulsing lights for high volume playback.
