The Z-10's are one of the largest desktop speaker systems I have seen at almost 10-inches high and 4.5-inches wide. Each satellite is powered by 3" high-excursion driver with a 1" dome. The satellites have a very nice black glossy finish to them. This will really make them look good on your desk and you can see why Logitech included the cleaning cloth.
On the right satellite are the controls and graphic LCD. The controls on the Z-10's are just like the ones we saw on Logitech's AudioStation. They are touch-sensitive, which is very cool and stylish. The controls include display, back, forward, play/pause, mute, level, up, down, and power. There are also 4 hot keys that you can set to your favorite songs so they are 1 touch away when you want to hear them.
Each satellite sits at an angle so sound is projected up to you. The satellites sit on sturdy bases with rubber grips on them so they are easy to place on your desk and stay put.
On the back of the satellite with the LCD on it are your connections. There is the power cord, USB connection and a standard audio jack. The USB cable will send information to the LCD as well as your music to the speakers. If you do not want to use USB there is the audio jack. You can also hook things like you iPod up to the speakers via the audio jack.
