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.
