Yes, I did.
I think I've mentioned that I have three systems in my house. Well, over the last few years I've also purchased several Jamo speakers (Jamo C809, C807, C803, C607 and C603) for the other systems.
After six years of living with the Opus 2, the Jamo C809 system have displaced my Wharfedale Opus 2. It was a tough call and I listened, thought about it and listened some more.
What it comes down to is this. The C809 have an overall better balance of sound and the bass is incredible. The Jamo's also have this overall seductive, very musical sound that just sounds so good with all kinds of music. Even moreso than the Opus 2.
It's the same with the Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Concert Grand, but moreso.
Overall balance is fanatastic. And again, there's this seductive warmth and musicality that surpasses the Opus 2 and C809. Yet, detail is wonderful. Very engaging speakers that draw you in and simply play the music so well.
And the synergy with my McIntosh MC252 amp and C220 Preamp....is out of this world.
Never fatiguing...never harsh.
They're just such a pleasant speaker to listen to. Can't fight it
