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.

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.

Is anyone of you using Jamo speakers in a home theater environment together with in ceiling speakers? I currently have the Jamo D600 as a 7.2 setup and for implementing Dokby Atmos I have to add 4 in ceiling speakers. Choice is between KEF (about which I found a lot) and the Jamo IC610 about which couldn't find anything├č, Can anybody give me sone advice?

I never see the larger S35 on sale, only the smaller s25 which can be found for around $150.

Be warned, these speakers have a very low sensitivity (80db) so it'll take more power to drive them loud. Also they don't play much below 200hz so you really good a good subwoofer that anything below 200hz and not be boomy.

Review of the S35 system
http://www.soundandvision.com/conten...speaker-system

Maybe you can make an offer with http://www.acousticsounddesign.com/. The sell a package with a Bic PL200 sub and Harman Kardon 1610 for $699.

Just did a live chat and you can get the S35 5.0 speakers for $299. The sub goes for about $300 by itself so that package with the HK 1610 is a really good deal.

Or maybe look at buying 5 of the Boston Soundware 4.5 speakers for $250 and adding a subwoofer if you don't have one. The Bostons will play lower than the S35 spheres.

Does anybody have the Jamo IC 610 (or other in ceiling speaker) in operation. I want to add them maybe as Dolby Atmos speaker to my existing D600 setup!

Decided to move back to Home Theater after a few years with Hifi/stereo gear. Tube amps, horns from JBL, soft and metal domes from PMC and Spendor etc. Bought accidently a set white gloss Jamo D500 5.2 THX wallspeakers. Consisting of 3 x LCR, 2 x SUR and 2 x SUB 550 (12 inches). I still got my simple vinyl rig and is amazed by how good it sounds. The LCR's and the subs play so well in synergi I almost can't believe it. Not typical HiFi-correct, but damn.. yet so fun and entusastic and smooth for mye a little bit sensitive ears.

And movies and series are where this setup really is brilliant! So dynamic and all channels are in amazing synergi. Good bass from the subs, tight and realistic. They don't go as deep as the bigger models from SVS I've own but are much better with music so I can live with this compromise. In my little crib the big Klipsch setup I had for some years ago would'nt stand a chance.

Surprisingly, I don't miss traditonal speakers! Off course I lost something in the weight of the sound and offcourse som detail and crisp in the top but I can live with this set for a long time.

I move to a even smaller place in the beginning of November so this placement is very temporary. They will of course be mounted.

I just get my first Jamo speaker: A 804 that is taking place in my HT system as a center channel.
Design is beautiful (black with leather).
The weight is heavy for a center channel.


Driven by a Yamaha A700 the sound is crystalline with a very good definition of the voices.
Small sound details and percussions are dynamic.
The only bad side is that the tweeter is emiting some 'S' sound on bad broadcast TV channel.
Solution: -0.5 dB adjustment of the highest frequencies.


Good surprise: the sound is not directional thanks to the design (open bass reflex port at each end).
Bad surprise: there is no fixation to maintain the A 804 on a flat surface.


Now I need to wait a few hundreds of hours to evaluate the full potential of the A 804.
But it is already a very enjoyable speaker.
