Hi,

For anyone who owns or has owned in the past a JAMO D 8Cen, how would you say it compared to modern 3 way center speakers, and how much did the 8Cen originally cost?

Thanks.

Upgrade itch is starting to hit me. I currently have 4x Jamo c607’s with a c60 center in my home theater. Does anyone know if the c807 or c97’s are big step up from the c607’s? Thanks in advance for any input.

Man, the S803s are really something else for their price point. I bought a pair on a whim and they've replaced my C93s as my fronts in my 70/30 HT/music system. Fantastic speakers that are flying under the radar.

Wow, does that mean you feel the S803s are better than the C93s?

Just for kicks, I ordered a pair of the S803s from Crutchfield yesterday. Don't have any real use for them, but curious...

For me yes, the 803s are preferred over the C93s due to the better detail, less 'sizzly' treble, and more natural overall sound in my space. The 93s have a more substantial low end, dig a bit deeper, are easier to drive, and have notably-better construction (though the 803s are fine in this area) so it really comes down to preference and what a listener values. The 93s are still great speakers in their own right.

Very interested in your thoughts when your 803s come in.

Very interesting!

Mine should arrive tomorrow. I'll then play with them in 2.0 and 2.1 contexts over the next couple weeks. I'm using NHT SB2 in my 2.1 system, so I'm curious as to how these Jamo will compare.

5.1 and 2.0 ch: Marantz AV7704/Emotiva DC-1/Rotel RB-1582 MKII/Audiosource Amp Three x 2/Polk LS90, CS400i, FX500i/Outlaw X-12, LFM-1/JVD DLA-HD250/Da-Lite 100" HCCV/Sony ES BDP/Sonos Connect. DC-1/RB-1582 MKII/Sonos Connect also feed Polk 7C in garage and Dayton IO655 on patio. 2.1 ch: Denon AVR-2807/Klipsch Forte I or NHT SB2/JBL SUB 550P x 2. 2.0 ch: Outlaw 975/Outlaw M2200 x 2/Klipsch RF-7 III/Sony ES BDP/LG 65" LED. 2.0 ch: Klipsch Powergate/NHT SB3. Kitchen: Sonos Play5.

Hey all. I recently purchased a Jamo S 810 subwoofer and it worked great for about a week, then it started doing a “heart beat” sound with no line plugged in. So, I got an exchange and the new one worked great for another week and it just started happening again. I am planning on returning this one as well, not sure what I will get now.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Jamo and Klipsch subs (same parent company) aren't known for reliable amps. It might be better for you anyway, as the S810 looks to be a poor performing sub. Assuming you paid the current sale price of $230, there are a few good options that would most likely be an improvement. The Bic RTR-EV1200 (slight variation of the F12) is currently $205 at Amazon.

I don’t mind spending a bit extra, can you make any recommendations that have a white option available? I ended up getting the white Jamo as the WAF was a factor.

I am interested in Jamo speakers.

C97
C9 sur
C9 cen
J112 sub

How these speakers sound?

Is Onkyo TX-NR686 or Denon AVR-2500H good enough to drive them?


Are Klipsch 8000F much better choice?


Thanks.

Yes, either of those receivers will be fine. That said, the C97s may benefit from a little more power from, say, a standalone amp if you plan on really cranking it. I'd also suggest the C 10 center if you have the space and budget for it, as IME it has a bigger sound.

Thank you for the info.


The C9 cen costs 270€ and C10 cen is 550€ so it's a big difference in price.



Is it worth it?

Yeah, that's a big price difference. I am very picky about my center channel, particularly the low-mids where the bugger drivers help, and prefer the C10. I am actually running it in my current setup so that little extra 'oomph' is worth it for me but may not be for you.

You're right. Center speaker is a very important speaker, so I will buy the C10 version.


C97
C10 cen
C9 sur
J112 x2


This is it then. 5.2 system


The J112 reminds me of Klipsch R-112SW. Same specs only with silver color not golden.

Dose anyone run the Jamo SS838 I was able to get a set. I'm using them as celling Atmos speakers. I haven't found a lot of information about them.

Hi guys, a few years ago I could listen to a pair of c607 speakers and I loved them, particulary the amazing bass slam they had and the great and strong mids with soft highs...now it is quite imposible to buy them so I wonder if the c97 are still sounding the same or did they changed their sound "signature"??...I cant find any decent and detailed comparision between both models.

Thanks!

I have the old C807s that I bought about 5-6 yrs ago. I really like those. I still have an old Klipsch center speaker that is heavier than heck, but I still like it.i think I bought it about 10 years ago. That’s about all the help I can offer. I did look at the C607, which I really liked. I just got a great deal on the C807s

Many thanks for the info mate, c807 are out of my scope tbh, and im looking for a faster punchy sound so I guess the 607s would better fit my needs...the problem is I cant find them anywhere, and I mean ANYWHERE here in europe so Im really sad...I love the sound of the jamos e850 that a friend of mine owns so I guess the c607 would sound as warm, musical, and punchy as hell as these e850 are right?(or even more)...well supossing Im able to find a pair lol

I have not heard a bad thing about them. Always very positive reviews. The C series is an older series, so probably hard to find. I don’t know how they would sound against the e850s. I just happened to come across my C series and haven’t heard any of the new lines since, unfortunately.

I own 4 jamo c607, 2 jamo c603 and 2 c60 cen. I can’t comment on the c807 as I’ve never heard them, but there was one prominent American poster that compared them and said that the c80 series is more resolving.

I can’t tell you how they compare to the c97 or c109 as no one has made those comparisons in the last few years I’ve been searching.

I can tell you my impression of the c607’s before you try to buy them. They’re a very musical and forgiving speaker, but lack the detail of higher end ones ex. planar. They have a laid back sound, but they can also sound congested if there’s a lot going on. My solution to this was upconverting to surround audio via Kodi. In this roll they sound amazing.

My only grievance is that they aren’t as mid forward as I’d like, so some recordings, mostly jpop for me, don’t sound all that great. A c60 cen helps a lot to solve this problem.

The speakers have excellent bass and if you don’t watch movies or play games a sub is almost unnecessary. The best complement to them is a sub that can go really low like 10-20hz. Otherwise you won’t notice much of a difference.

Thanks a lot for your help man!!!, btw, do you live in europe?, maybe you could sell me a pair+e60 cen??...Im about to surrender, there is one unit in amazon but it's at 400E and just ONE so...

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??

thanks again!!

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??

thanks again!!
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.

Great to read that, so I can safely say the C607 provide some solid rocking bass (mid bass really), as much as the E870/E875...Yeah, I have researched every single part in the world (including second hand which in fact would be my best option to save some money) I could looking for a pair of these c607 but sadly they are either very far from Spain or there is only one available (amazon) at crazy price so not much I can do...I would LOVE to get c607+c60+c601 but looks like it is just impossible right now ...man this makes me so sad!, Im running out of ideas now, waiting for someone to sell one set and constantly sweep the whole internet every day to "possibly" find them seems quite overwhelming so unless you guys can help me with this Im afraid I will have to deal with it...
