I need to run them in some more, I think it will only get better. I'm very happy with this purchase because I have listened to and own much more expensive speakers that don't stand up to these.
Yeah, that intial brightness only lasts for an hour or two........at the most.
They really smooth out quickly and a slight touch (very slight) of warmth settles in. They also start to develope a hard to describe organic, musical timbre. The instruments will start sounding so melodic and beautiful.
I don't know what other gear you have in the chain, but you're very likely to discover that the C607 will quickly charm you with their very musical presentation.
I suppose it's possible that I'm getting that with my C607 because of the gear feeding them the music. But you may, too.
In my experience with the C607 I've found that 18 inches to 24 inches from the backwall (depending on your room acoustics and setup), is ideal for beautiful bass response. But even 12 inches sounds pretty damn good, if you ask me.
The bass is absolutely great on the C607. But remember, as with all speakers, once you get them setup and their placement correct; they will only deliver the bass that's on the recordings. And as we all know, there are plenty of recordings where the bass was recorded fat, wooly and/or boomy. Because that's what the artists wanted for their bass sound.
No speaker or gear will change a fat, wooly....or boomy bass recording into something else. I think sometimes people in this hobby forget that.
Rustdust, are you toeing in the C607? If so, how much of a toe-in?
I've found that not only the Jamo C607, but the Jamo C807 sound their best with only a very tiny amount of toe-in; or no toe in at all.
But the no toe-in at all truely depends on how far spread apart you have them, how far your seating position is from them and the width and depth of your room. Remember, ideally they should be at least eight feet apart (between the left and right C607) and if at all possible your seating position should be equal to the distance they are spread apart.
Eight feet the distance between your C607, then eight feet the distance of your seating position.
Nine feet the distance between your C607, then nine feet the distance of your seating position.
Ten feet the distance between your C607, then ten feet the distance of your seating position. I think you get the point

I've been saying this for at least six months. These C607 are a very impressive speaker design and an exceptional value. I've put them up against a pair of $2,800.00 speakers and not only I, but both my friends (a male and female) that were with me; felt the C607 was the hands-down better speaker. All three of us love the C607.
Please do keep us updated on your musical fun with the C607
