Right now I have a mismatch of speakers, Athena AF-2 fronts, Polk R60 rears, Klipsch KS-C1, and Audio source 12" sub


TIA!
I am a big fan of Jamo speakers having used them for the past 8 years and my opinion is that for $199 you cant go wrong. I do belive the SUB200 sells for almost that by itself. I used a similar size Jamo setup but just recently switched to floorstanding towers with it. My room is about 16 x 18 and it filled it no problem. Without getting into crazy specifics, suggesting other systems, etc, the simple answer is that for $199, you should be quite happy with it. Few people have bad things to say about Jamo speakers. Check out the owners thread if you want some more info. For the money, they make some of the best speakers without sinking in tons of cash.

Going from nice floorstanders or bookshelves you are downsizing in audio quality.

But you are looking at small Jamo bookshelf speakers?



They're are not floorstanding. Unless you just type that statement wrong?


Maybe I'm as mixed up as your are?

I was looking for something like the Jamo 406S which does not exist any longer...

So I was thinking about the 413 + a set of Jamo Floor standings (the athenas are GIANT)


406 Jamos: Floorstanding speakers (each): 8.4" W x 33.0" H x 9.4" D

Athena AF-2: 41-½" H x 15-½" D x 9-½" W

If you're looking for something smaller also give the Pioneer FS51, C21 and BS21 a look. They sell them at Best Buy. And you can listen to them yourself.

leaning towards this set up. whats the big difference between the BS41 and the 21? More than twice the price for the 41s

I have some s606 Jamo's. Am very very happy with them. All of the speakers I demo'd, I couldn't find anything that sounded even close for the $500 I paid for them. You should be very pleased with them.
