LOGITECH DEBUTS FIRST
GAMING SPEAKER WITH SMART RGB LIGHTS
Logitech G has released its first gaming speaker with intuitive RGB lights and sound. The G560 PC Gaming Speaker ($279.95) joins the new G512 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard ($179.95), which also features ‘LIGHTSYNC’ RGB.
Logitech G claims the products are “purposebuilt” for gamers, synchronising RGB lights and sound to gameplay via LIGHTSYNC™.
The speaker’s LIGHTSYNC tech also supports nongaming video and music for added versatility.
Ujesh Desai, Logitech Gaming VP and GM, asserts products are designed to compliment Logitech’s ‘G502’ gaming mouse, for a fully immersive gaming experience.
Mr Desai affirms LIGHTSYNC technology offers “real intelligence” to RGB lighting, synchronising audio and lighting to on-screen gameplay.
As such, the new G560 aims to be Logitech G’s most immersive PC gaming speaker system yet.
The G560 delivers 240 Watts Peak/120 Watts RMS power for robust 3D audio with DTS:X® Ultra 1.0 for in-game positional audio.
With multiple connection points – e.g. Bluetooth, 3.5mm and USB – the G560 offers customisation across 16.8 million colours and four lighting zones.
Users can switch through connected devices (e.g. PC and smartphone) via Logitech’s Easy-Switch technology.
The new G512 claims to take Logitech’s award-winning keyboards to the ‘next level’, with new LIGHTSYNC support.
The keyboard is available in two Romer-G mechanical key switch versions – Romer-G Tactile and Romer-G Linea.
Logitech claims the G512 actuates 25% faster than leading competitors (low-force 45g actuation) coupled with an anodised and brushed aircraft-grade 5052 aluminum top.
