Hello,

So while shopping at my town's local thrift store for weird electronics like I typically do, I encountered a strange-looking device and bought it on the cheap. Turns out it's the control pod to a Logitech Z680 system (and in hindsight I should have looked for some speakers to go with it).

So now I have a Z680 control pod with no speakers to go with it. How difficult would it be to rig up an adapter to have it control a set of amplified speakers (so basically the opposite of creating a headless Z680 setup)? All I'm seeing in the thread so far is for headless speaker setups, while I'm looking for a speakerless head setup.

I'd imagine that the control pod is outputting signals for each channel, plus receiving power and maybe sending some other data (that's what it looks like from this pinout description here). The problem is that the preceding pinout doesn't mention anything about power, but would the colors correlate to the same (or similar) purposes in the Z680 and Z5500?

If all else fails, it sounds like these control pods are in short supply, so I guess I could sell it off.

Default Z-5300

I noticed there was some question on getting the Z-5300 working without the remote pod in this thread. I got it working (sort of), but had to bypass the pre-amp section to achieve it. Volume levels and crossover will need to be done at the source. My Asus motherboard does this properly.

Hello everyone.

I have recently been having some issues with my z5500 system and figured I would see if anyone here could offer up some advice to what may be causing my issue. Sometimes the system will start working perfectly on any input, and then randomly it starts to make a very loud popping noise out of the speakers. The popping noise will continue regardless if I turn the volume down or change input. Finally I lose all audio completely. Sometimes I can get the audio to return if I cycle through the inputs, but many times there will be no audio or the display will say 'Detecting...' even on inputs that aren't plugged in. Sometimes it will just shut off on and return to standby mode while this is all going on.

The PID on my set is R510. I would be willing to perform electrical tests and soldering to fix this issue if needed. I just don't know what to start.

Thanks in advance for any help offered up.
