Jamo S 809 HCS (5.0) or Klipsch R-820F (pair)

Hi guys,

I'm in doubt of buying Jamo S 809 HCS (5.0) or Klipsch R-820F (pair). What would you choose between these two and why? I'm not strict with surround or stereo, everything is an option and the speakers' purpose would be for movies, Spotify and Audio Technica AT-LP120 turntable. Also, I would like to buy Denon AVR-X2500H. Please tell me your opinion, is Denon AVR-X2500H good in combination with one of these two speakers? My budget for the speakers is 880$. If something else comes to your mind, please, feel free to recommend different speakers or AVR.

I'd avoid the Klipsh R series and go for an RP series tower like the Klipsch Reference Premiere RP-5000F

The Jamo system is pretty good for the price. Where are you located? Can you visit any Best Buys or other Audio store to try anything out?

If you want a killer pair of towers and a great price may I suggest the Polk LSiM 705 . $350 each after $100 slickdeals rebate. It is one of their top of the line towers.

Those are great recommendations, huge thanks. It would be nice though if the price is a bit lower, maybe 50$ at least, for Klipsch Premiere and Polk. I'm from Serbia and prices for Polk and Klipsch in Europe generally are circling around 420-450$. I'll try to find some good audio store to try something live. Those Jamo speakers are definitely looking good and there are many positive reviews but I'm not sure if they are really that high-quality to go side by side with Klipsch and Polk.

Jamo is owned by Klipsch. Klipsch is known to have ear piercing treble on their lower model lines. They've have been reported to be much less fatiguing with the latest version. What else do you have available to you?

Kef LS50,Q200C, Q100, SVS SB-2000, Denon AVR-X3400H, NAD 216, Panasonic 50" Plasma, Xbox One.
Bedroom: JBL Loft 50 , Loft 20, Bic F-12, Denon AVR-S710W, PS3, 32" Insigna LED.
