The OFFICIAL Jamo Speaker Owner's thread! - Page 6

post #151 of 5637
Hi Archnmez - Funny you should mention it, I just pulled the trigger on a pair of C805's for front duty and C803's for side-surrounds.
(I hope it works out ok, given that the C803's have 7" drivers, but the C805 only has 6"!)

I'll be driving the speakers with an Onkyo TX-SR875.
Do people think I need a separate power amp for these?

Either way, I will certainly let the forum know the results once I get them and trial them out....
Fairly excited, I've had Jamo Prestige 90's for the past 13 years, and I'm sticking with the same brand as I just love the SQ that they deliver!

Hi,
I'm looking to replace my front speakers with one soundbar, due to room changes by the wifey, and came across the Jamo A36, which combines the fronts and center in one sound bar. I can't find a dealer here in San Diego to listen to it, and wondered if anyone has seen this model. Haven't heard of Jamo's, but after reading this thread, sounds like they are worth checking out. These will be driven with a Denon 2808. I know it will be a trade off in channel seperation, but have to make some sacrifices! Anyone heard this speaker??
Thanks!

Glad to see other Jamo fans here in the states. Feel like an island in the ocean of klipsch lovers. Had my Jamo setup for about 5 years now and love it. A330 surround setup with sub. Bought a separate center at that time which I can no longer find any info for. It's and E7 but has 4 drivers and a silk tweeter. Sounds fantastic!!

Hi Guys,

I need some advice / suggestions for mounting my C803's via Speaker stands.

With 0 knowledge about this stuff - how are speakers in general usually mounted on speaker stands? Drilling through the base? Is that safe?

Can someone provide options for this type of speaker, given its size? Does the base-plate really need to be as big as the speaker itself?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Hi Guys,

Having some C803 in walls put in tomorrow, 3 for the fronts and doing some 631k4's for surrounds(4 of em). Also have a Sub300 from Jamo putting it down low. All driven by a Harmon Kardon AVR-354. Also considering the Denon 789 but my installer recommends the HK. Any advice before we get started?

Thanks!
Jimmie

I was thinking to buy jamo A-102 satellite speakers but they are rated 6 Ohm which is kinda strange for such small speakers so I wonder if they are compatible with 8 Ohm outputs. Does anyone know the real nominal impedance of them or are there any impedance curve graph of them on the internet? Thanks.

i have the a102hcs5 5.1 setup and they work fine with my sony dg820 which has 8ohm rated outs.

I just ordered the a340 hcs7 speakers and can't wait for them to come in. I hope they sound good because I was unable to listen to them.

Hi Jamo lovers

I am from India. I had been longing to buy my first HT system and like every potential HT owner i was considering 'Bose'. After reading some really negative reviews i did lot of research and auditioned Jamo A340.. I fell in Love and wasted no time to bring them home. I installed them yesterday and initial impression is very good. I am not an audiophile and i would like to know your opinios on these speakers . i will keep posting messages on this form to get the best out of my speakers. i have connected these to a Sherwood 6513.Thanks in advance
post #162 of 5637
My speakers came a few days ago and I have not had time to install them yet. I am still trying to figure out how to mount the surrounds. The surrounds will be on the wall on either side of the listening area but I dont know if I should put them in the corners and fire in toward the center of the room or mount them where they are firing directly at each other. Ahh!! decisions!!!

Hi

I also faced same dilemma..Temporarily i have placed on shelves behind where i sit and angled them towards my seat..Just got Starwars DVD to test my speaker set up.

So over the weekend I set up my C803's and C805's in my living area.

My first impression was "wow, thats bright!". The sound has a definate crispness to it, without being harsh, and thats very important.

I'm a little dissapointed with the base response of the C805's though - it doesn't have the punch I would like, which is probably due to the 6" drivers.

I find it a little strange that my side surround encosures are wider (as the 803 has 7") but I'll get used to it.

The build quality of the units are solid, the curved design is quite unique and a bit of a talking point.

---

off-topic, i've paired these speakers with an onkyo tx-sr875, and i'm experiencing dolby digital audio dropout. I've left a note on the 875 thread but no one has told me what could be the cause....do any of you experience even slight audio dropout when listening to DD tracks? Its my first 5.1 system
so I'm not sure if i should live with it or not.

The other thing is - its inconsistant - sometimes it happens all the time, other times its fine. Quite baffling!

Any comments / help / hints would be great...

That seems like a great deal. Anybody have these speakers? How do you like them?
post #166 of 5637
Hey guys came across a used Jamo E series 7.1 setup locally just wanted to know if it's a good price. It consist of

2 - E770's
4 - E700's
1 - E7CEN
1 - E7SUB
1 - AVR-793

They sound pretty good to me He wants 400.00 for everything. I was going to use this setup for my living room to replace a cheap 7.1 onkyo home theater in a box setup that I got for like 399.00 a couple of years ago at Circuit City.

Thanks,

Joe

If the C805 are anything like the C603, C607, C803 and C807 that I have, they'll mellow and smooth out very well for you. That initial "brightness" disappears after 20-30 hours of burn-in/play-in.

By 50 hours they'll be smooth, sweet, clear, with a slight touch of warmth and never harsh. Only if you feed them really badly recorded material with tons of reverb and high, edgie treble......will they sound bad. And that's just the bad recording.

The bass can be a little subdued for the first 20-30 hours, but the bass drivers will lossen up and pump the bass very well. But I'm not sure you'll ever get that in-your-face......punch to the nuts effect you're looking for.

These Jamo speakers can handle a lot of good, low bass. But they do it in a very composed, musical, dynamic manner. But they do lean just a slight bit to the polite side with it's overall dynamic presentation. They're not dynamically shy, but neither are they overly-intense, in your face.

One thing I can tell you, is this.......

The Jamo's really breathe and sing with good, quality juice/power. I don't know anything about your receiver, but the specs seem to indicate good power. I don't know how accurate those specs are, though. And I don't know how good the power supply is on that receiver.

Give them (the C805) time to burn-in and loosen up.

Another thing, how close to the back wall are your C805 placed?

Do you have any furniture between the C805?

The bass is much better if you place the speakers at lease 12-18 inches off the backwall. And make sure that the front baffles of the C805 are out in front of any furniture that may be between them, as to not interfere with the dispersion of the drivers.


I don't know why your Onkyo tx-sr875 has dolby digital audio dropouts, sorry.

Has anyone heard/tried the 827 LCR in-walls?
post #169 of 5637
I inherited some jamo 707i towers a few years ago, and I was hooked. since then I have built a 7.1 setup using the following:

Mains: Jamo 707i's
Center: Jamo Center 100i
Surrounds: Jamo Surround 200's
Rear: Klipsch Pro Media Satellite's

I am looking to change the Rear's with a set of Jamo speakers, but I cant find ones that look right. All the Jamo speakers I have now have rounded corners, or curved sides, but I can't find the Jamo speakers that match.

Can anyone help with some models numbers I can search for? I have seen them once on eBay, but they were white. And I can't remember the name. The have the Black Ash finish.

Thanks in advanced.

picked up a set on buy.com, thanks for the info, gonna use them as front speakers for my a102hcs5's, move my current fronts to work as surrounds for 7.1.
post #172 of 5637
Just pulled the trigger on the C 805's for $444 shipped for the pair (I had to do it!), you guys with the 805's chime in and give you impressions after a little burn-in time please. They are replacing the Energy RC-10's that are moving to the bedroom that sound fantastic for such a small speaker.
post #173 of 5637
got my e700's and i'm impressed. they're not huge, but they definitely make a difference over the tiny a102's i had before.
post #174 of 5637
Rust Dust where did you get the c805's for that low price?
post #175 of 5637
I was seaching around the net and stumbled across them at Pricegrabber.com (Was really looking for C803's), when I checked out last night they had 4, I bought 2. I checked a few min. ago and the site said it had 0, I hope it doesn't turn out to be a screw-up, I did get a confirmation email from the seller, it was probabally a auto generated one.

post #177 of 5637
Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum but I've visited it several times. I'm interested in buying a Jamo S606 HCS6 package plus 2 S506 Speakers for my living room. My major issues are:

1 - Does this package bring speaker cables? if yes how's the quality?

2 - Should I put the S606 next to the Subwoofer (SUB250) or put them as back speakers and the S506 as front speakers?

3 - Will these 7 speakers work well with a Onkyo TX-SR606?

Thanks for your help
post #178 of 5637
Well ordered the C 805 on 2/25 it's now 3/3, I called and there still sitting in the warehouse.....GRRRRR. Will anybody with the 805's chime in on impressions after break-in time.
