What a pity no one ever made a comparison between the c97 and c607 as I can find many good deals on some c97 but Im afraid they are "too different" to what Im looking for (the E855/E875 sound) so I can't get beyond the fence...btw, what do you mean with "they aren’t as mid forward as I’d like"? are they lacking mids?...what I remember about the E850/855 is that they have a really MASSIVE and beautiful mids/low mids which made them a very punchy speaker for rock, pop and such kind of music so you dont need to turn up the "bass" in the AVR as they have already A LOT of body and a very fuller sound...isnt that the case with the C607??
Sorry, I’m based out of Canada. Higher end Jamo stuff is fairly hard to find here, so I’ll probably be keeping my gear.
The mids on the c607’s are full and good, but for female vocals they lack the delivery that they can provide for male vocals, which is excellent. It’s not a huge problem IMO, but it is there. Eq could probably fix that, and to be fair since I’ve recently got in to headphones I am comparing it to headphones that cost a lot more than what these speakers cost.
What’s funny is that I think these speakers in 3.0 edge out some headphones in the just under $2k cdn range, ie focal clears. In 5.0 with 4x c607 they absolutely destroy the focal line up. Paired with really low reaching subs like my pair of Hsu ULS-15, home theater is all I could ever ask for. My wife often remarks how going to the cinemas has worst sound then our home setup.
If you’re going in to the c607’s for a purely 2 channel music set up, they may be lacking, but I’ve only ever used them with with an AVR so I don’t know if they scale better with higher end gear. I auditioned the Kef LS50 in two channel last month and they definitely have more detail, but of course lack the bass.
Have you tried looking used? I got almost all these speakers used for much less than their MSRP. My best purchase was a c60 for $40 cdn. I paid 8x that for a new one. I personally wouldn’t pay a premium for these speakers.
