I got a great deal on the Jamo A 102 HCS 5 set (5.1 with powered Sub) a few weeks ago at brandsmart - $79! Perfect for my kids' playroom.


It's not a high-end setup, but gives a fantastic sound for such a small package. Handles a surprising amount of power also, without distortion.


In addition, each of the speakers, even tho tiny, is a two-way design, which was very surprising to me, since I had figured it to be a single driver when I bought it.


Question, does anyone know where I could buy two additional A 102 cubes speakers to make the 5.1 setup a 7.1 setup? I've seaqrched to no avail.


Hopefully there are some sets still left at the store, as it'll probably be cheaper just to buy another 5.1 set at that price rather than try to get two extra cubes.


Any thoughts?

I am not a fan of dynaudio and would never suggest them. Just not my cup of tea. The Monitor Audio's I have never listened to so I cannot give you a opinion on those.

I'd be very interested in your thought's on the D7's vs the Triads (say silvers) and if you'd heard the Klipsch Ultra II's

Jamo is (joke). In Europe they sell their best models under 800 Euros and

still nobody want's them. Same as a Bang & Olufsen products (winning design but awerage electronics).

I purchased the E855's a few weeks ago, and I am powering them with a tube amp, which outputs 30W in triode, and 65W in pentode mode.


I love these speakers, they sound fantastic. What a value for the money. I do not think that these speakers are a joke at all. Anyone who get a chance to listen to Jamo, you should, and decide for yourself.


Even with a tube amp connected people think that I have a sub somewhere in the room, that is how good the base response is, and no it is not that boomy horrible sounding bass, but clean, and tight base.


Acoustic, and vocals sound amazing, and they will play Hip Hop or any other type of music well. This is just my evaluation with an ipod as a source. I can't wait to connect a good quality CD player.

Well I just picked up two paris of E600. I got them at a really good sale price of 99$ for each pair. I had been wanting to get the Infinity 152s, for some time, but it proved to be a total hassle to get them into Canada for the price I was willing to pay.


I bought these to round out my 7.1. I couldn't find hardly any info online about them aside from retailers cut and paste info, so if they have the power I need, they will be my Center (R&L) and Rear (R&L). I have two large speakers up front along with an Infinity Primus 350 center.


I'll let you know how they sound!

I found a pair for $115, and had been debating whether or not to get them. I finally did tonight, and was very pleased. The bass was full and rich for such a small speaker, and the treble was smooth and clean, not harsh at all. I'm going back to get another pair!

Hi people:


Totally newbie myself, so excuse all of my ignorance.

Well, I bought a S 606 HCS 3 Jamo set (5 pieces, not sub) a couple of weeks ago.

Not LCD Set yet (waiting for Full HD sets prices to fall down).

So my main concern was music right now and, as regular Cds are stereo, I auditioned primarily the large front speakers of the Jamo set.

I must tell you something: they are fabulous and I think they are better of many most recognized brands (I auditioned these front speakers at the same time of some Infnity Primus, JBL Stage, and Klipchs sinergy F2 -paradoxically, the latter brand is now the owner of Jamo, but its extreme crispy sound is not my taste at all).

These Jamo S 606 have a side firing woofer that is plenty of bass, so I do not go for any subwoofer. I like a well-toned, firm, precise bass, but not the kind of "moves the earth".

So I can say I'm pretty happy with these beauties.


Now, my first concern. Maybe someone can help.


Explanation:

Onkyo TX-SR 605 has a function called Pure Audio. It means that all the innecesary electronic is shut down, stereo enter, stereo out. No compromise.

Sound is incredibly rich, voices from the large Jamo speakers feels like heaven, violins are violins, acoustic guitars come to life like the guitar player were in my room, and so. At this point you could think: "This guy is a classic music aholic". Well, not. I listen to heavy metal most of the time, a wide array of it, from american hard rock to european power metal with soprano and tenor voices, violins, citars, etc.

So here comes the end af this long explanation. When you listen to something like Anathema or Paradise Lost, mild atmospheric songs (or part of it) sound unbelievable and side firing woofer delivers a profound bass that feels warm and full. But when it comes the time to the whole bunch of long-haired axe men to attack the instruments with fury, the speakers tends to booms in excess. And I mean it: "excess".

I changed the Onkyo configuration to simply "stereo" (shut off Pure Audio, and all the Onkyo electronic take the scene). Bass get softer, the "booming" almost disappear, but you feel your are missing the "inmense" sound that the great combination of these Jamo speakers and Onkyo "Pure Audio" can deliver together. I think it could be because in Pure Audio, the full range goes to the front speakers, but when you swicht to "stereo", Onkyo delivers some of the deeper bass to the subwoofer (that in my case, it not exist at all), but I' am not sure of this conclusion. Maybe, the receiver just cut some frequencies, or maybe just reduce the bass in some way (youcan feel that everything gets milder, also the highs and the midrange, to tell the truth).


To sum up, some of you who have these Jamo can reduce the "booming" in some way?. Have you experience something similar?.


I read something in the Onkyo manual about select the frequencies sent to the speakers. I'm really a newbie, but will that mean that you are cutting off some of the bass frequencies sent to the speakers, am I right?


I like Onkyo's Pure Audio, I like the Jamos, but I don't like booming at all.


I've already sent a message to Jamo Denmark. I'm waiting some kind of answer.


Any idea will be welcome.


Thank you for just read this post.


Below are the details of the speakers:

The S 606 frontspeaker is fully equipped for optional bi-wiring and bi-amplification and comes with spikes.

Just picked up a Jamo A340 PDD.5 + 2 extra A340's on Ebay for a grand total (with shipping) of $520! Im guessing I was able to get this setup at this price because almost nobody in the US has heard of this company.


- All 7 speakers + sub connected to a Onkyo TXSR605 receiver

- Sharp BDP20U Blu Ray player connected via HDMI to the Onk

- Mits 1500 DLP HD projector connected via HDMI to the Onk

- 100" home-made 16x9 screen


The Sharp sends PCM to the Onk via HDMI out to the Jamo's. Unfortunately there are only a few Blu Ray movies out there with Uncompressed PCM 7.1 as an option (like Jet Li's "War").


The Onkyo/Jamo/Blu Ray combination rocks, I can hear details in movies that I didnt know existed. I upgraded from a Denon/Klipsch setup that only had DTS-ES as its best option & the difference is night & day. Hopefully more 7.1 movies will be released in the future...

Unfortunately KIZA, you don't know what you're talking about. Not only is Jamo a well respected speaker manufacturer, but for many years most of the VERY high end speakers produced in Europe used Jamo drivers -- because Jamo had the capability to manufacture the best drivers that most small speaker manufacturers simply couldn't! Jamo's own end-products had focused on sound reinforcement applications. At one point they decided to market their own consumer line of products since they already made all the parts. Their line in Europe runs from Circuit City class models (that you are likely most aware of) to the ultra-high end. Here in the US, only the high end is imported.


I have had a pair of Jamo Concert VII's for more than 15 years, and they still amaze me every day. They contain technological advances that many speaker manufacturers are only now touting as "new". When I purchased them I did side by side comparisons with many other high-end brands, and had no trouble realizing they were the best.

Would you happen to still have any documentation pertaining to those Speakers?



Thank you

Hmm..... probably some where
If there's something you'd like to know about them, just ask. If I can't find the docs, I still know a lot about them.

Very kind, thank you very much..


Well, I pretty much want to know everything I can dig up.

I have a pair of these. Well actually I have a pair of these enclosures... nothing more than that, no Drivers, no crossover networks, no binding poles, no "spikes", no front grills, nothing..

I was offered these enclosures..


And I have quite a like for them.. I was contemplating restoring them to their original state or if possible even better.


I was thinking of going all Seas on them..



What can you tell me?


Thank you very much....

My Jamo Concert 803 package (C803 bookshelves, C80 center and C80 dipoles) still impresses me, even after almost a year of owning them.
