Hi all,I,m considering the purchase of the KAS-200SM1 keyboard system which comprises two satellite speakers and a sub-woofer unit to go with my KN7000,as reviewed in December 2003 techplus mag.I was wondering if anyone had first hand knowlege of this system.The original rrp was 699 but now has been reduced to an enticing 499.
Apparently it sounds superb and really enhances the KN's sound.Anyway,would be interesting to hear anyone's opinion.
Cheers,David.

Not familiar with the one you mentioned.

I would take a look in th e General Arranger section of Synthzone, and type in Logitech z2200 and you'll see a lot of people are using theses for at home and playing out.

This particular model is a 2.1, 200 watts RMS and sells for around $100 US. Don't know about prices in England.

Hi there - the Logitech Z2200 retails at List Price 149.99 in the UK.

I have just purchased these from Pixmania, France - including tax and delivery - Total to pay 81.70 118,29 Euros. Prices seem to vary on a daily basis.

I use them purely for home use and I am very pleased with them. So far I have only had the volume up to 40% which is ample in a home environment.

I have not heard the KAS-200SM1 speakers but comparing the price against the Logitech Z2200 I would certainly expect the the KAS to be far superior - BUT who knows! Joan

I use the Z2200 system also. What a difference in the low end. I use them at home and gigs at a big hall,and have plenty of power. I put the satellites on modified music stands and raise them about 4 ft. to get more throw. They are the most bang for the buck out there.

I also use the Z2200 with my 2600 and 7000. Do not think they can be beat for the money. I paid $108. but they have been as low as $80. in the states. Give E-Buy a try.

Many thanks for your replies re speaker systems for keyboards,it seems logitech have made a very good impression on several of you,are they really that much of an improvement on the KN7K's on board sound system?Several posts on the general forum mention too much bass response!Anyway,I'll check them out an maybe save myself a few hundred quid,cheers again,David.

Re Logitech Z2200 speakers. What a difference in price from the UK and the States.

What I omitted to say in my first post was that I have not got them hooked up to the KN7! - I have them attached to my PC - listen to CDs with them.

Joan - KN7 - UK.

This system compliments the KN7000 and was developed and produced especially for it all be it a little expensive.
I use the same MJ Ref 100 sub woofer minus the satellites because I have my own actives.
This kit is ideal for playing out.
The subwoofer alone will set you back 300
