Just moved into a new house and current surrounds won't work. I have had a couple of different AV companies in to give bids on mounting some in ceiling rear surrounds and either in wall LCR or bookshelf LCR.
Problem I have is that I currently have the Jamo D8 cen and love it. Some installers are saying that I absolutely need to replace the center channel speaker and some are saying that I can keep it and be fine.
Any thoughts on what would best timbre match my current Jamo D8 CEN?
Thanks!

2 more D8's centers or D870 towers or D830 bookshelf speakers are the best match. I don't know how difficult those are to find though.

Are you in the USA?

Yes, in the US.
I found a pair of used D830's for sale. I just need to decide if I have the space in the entertainment center for those speakers.
Primary use is going to be for home theater, so I may look at replacing the whole thing and starting fresh.

Hi guys, i write from Chile and i saw most page about jamo speakers in this thread, i hope someone can help .

I own a Jamo S606 ( 2 front , 1 center and 2 rear ) 2 years ago and i like it the sound, it´s awesome to see movies and play games, not perfect for music but much better than another trademarks.
I have a doubt:
I have the opportunity to change my s606 front speaker to Jamo C605 ( without pay bucks and is a part of family).

In some forums i readed about quality of Concert series is superior in comparison to Studio Series (in this case C605 and S606 ) . Can you help me to confirm that information ?

I listen 50% music and 50% videos so , i don´t have preferences, i just want the better speaker between those.

PD: Sorry for my english , i hope you can understand what a wrote.

amplifier is very important in Music
Amplifier model please?
afrogt's Avatar afrogt 06:48 PM 07-01-2014
C605 is definitely a much better speaker than the S606.

So you don't have to pay extra for the C605? If not, this is an incredible deal. Buy them!

You need a powerful amplifier, for example a yamaha RX-A1030 for have a keep bass and fast reaction on the affects

Wow Thanks, amazing receiver i hope one day i can buy ( when i finish my career).
The Yamaha Rx v-465 was part of a promo here ( long time ago ) was a good opportunity to buy a first setup ( Speakers are very expensive in my country ). Sure my next upgrade will be a receiver ! i am grateful for the answer .

I agree that the rx-v465 is not the most powerful receiver out there, but it should be plenty for the S606's (and the C605's) for them to sound good, unless you are listening to them at very loud levels. I don't want to have the debate here, but I would recommend doing some reading in the audio forums about amplifier power before spending money on expensive electronics.

Does anyone know why Jamo has such crappy distribution in the US? I might be in the market for some new speakers eventually.Looking around various online retailers Jamo has not a whole lot for selection.

Klipsch owns Jamo now don't they? Is it by intent to strangle this brand in the states?Most people I know that love music aren't very familiar with the brand.

Mainly I'm thinking out loud and was curious.I just wish Jamo would get a better push.

Thoughts?

Yes...jamo was bought by klipsch then klipsch was bought by audiovox. I believe they are phasing out jamo. A good example of this was when they started selling the jamo 426 towers rebranded as energy ef500 towers. Its unfortunate because jamo made some great speakers.

Jamo did make some great speakers. I have a pair of 809's that I loved, but can't use anymore because I went with a bigger screen and the Jamo's don't fit. I kept them hoping to be able to use them elsewhere in my house, but it won't work. I do love the way they sound though.

Do you mean a bigger TV? Was wondering what you meant by the 809s didn't fit. What color are the speakers?

I have a projector, had a 92 inch screen and changed to a 104 inch. Speakers were on the side of the screen, between the screen and the walls. Went with a bigger screen and the speakers blocked part of the screen, so I had to make a change. The C809's are black ash and I also have the c80 center also black ash. They are great speakers just don't have the room for them anymore.

Jamo never had much of a presence in the USA even before Klipsch bought them. I think Klipsch acquired them for their distribution channels overseas. Haven't seen any quality Jamos introduced since the acquisition, just cheap budget speakers.

Nice upgrade in screen!! Didn't know if my message made it to you, but what are you going to do with the 809's'

I'm going to sell the 809's, bad thing is, I didn't keep the boxes, so shipping is out of the question. I had someone here interested in them a few years ago, but that fell through.

I have a complete (5.0) Jamo system with the same speakers up front. They really are wonderful speakers and do everything well. Normally, I am tempted every few years to replace/upgrade my speakers but not so with my Jamo Concert series. Just can't imagine anything better even at twice the money. It really is a shame that distribution for Jamo is so poor in North America. I'm hoping I never have a driver go bad as I am afraid I won't be able to find a replacement.

Hi Jamo fans, I'm looking for a pair of 803 or 805 or 807s or 809s if I can afford that. They're hard to find, and I've been waiting for some to come up on ebay for a reasonable price. Can anyone recommend where I may find some for sale new or used. Anywhere that takes paypal is a plus.
Thanks!

I have the Jamo S606 HCS3 with an Yamaha RX-A2010.

Im very happy with the sound, but i wanted to try out the C60 center so i bought one, as it was only 2 available on any internet store here in Norway and i dont wanna miss the chance to get a better Center.

However i havent tried it out yet, but im also thinking of buying the C60 Surround's.

Will it be any sound matching problems here? Even tough the S60 CEN sounded OK, i felt i wanted some more, hoping the C60 will provide a better sound on movies.

Hi guys,
I have a pair of Jamo R907 and would like to get a center speaker for Home Theater setup. I could not locate Jamo R900 CEN anywhere as it has been discontinued. Just wondering if anyone know what is the next best matching center speaker might be? Other than buying a pair of new R907 and use one of them as Center

I have the S60 and C60 center and the C60 is the better of the two. If you have it now what are you waiting for? Try it out! You've got nothing to lose but a little time to set it up.
