Still enjoying my C803's C80cen and C400sur setup. If I move to a bigger place I would love to purchase a pair of C809 towers and move the C803s to surround duty. These Jamo C800 series speakers really are wonderful as long as give them some good clean power.

Default Jamo S 428 HCS3 & Marantz SR 5007

Hi Guys

Im new to this forum and need some advice on the Jamo S428 Speakers.
I Have a pretty good deal down here in SA for the speakers and AVR.

Previously I ran a Marantz SR 5004 AND B&W 309's Fronts with matching center and ASW 300 B&W SUB 300W.

I have sold my SR5004 AND 309'S and now plan on replacing them. Im not sure the sound of The Jamo's so please advise..

I mainly listen to Stereo 2.1 for music and love detail, clarity and strong vocals. So 60% Stereo & 40% HT
Also listening to music @ moderate to low volumes shouldn't compromise detail - have a baby in the house!

The AVR is specked @ 100w X 7 @ 8ohm and 180W @ 6ohm.

I prefer warm but detailed sound and captivating HT.
Will be using the B&W Center and Sub.

I have seen reviews for the S426 only, is the S428 its bigger brother with the extra woofer meaning better mid range and vocals?

Are the S428's fronts good floorstanders.

Thanks in advance

Nish..

Although its not etched in stone, but the general consensus is that your front sound stage should consist of identical speakers. This what they are timber matched. When your front sound stage is timber matched you will get seamless panning from left to right with clear emphasis on dialogue with an even blend of sound effects/ elements from your L/R speakers.

I say its not etched in stone because I have heard some amazing systems that were comprised of speakers from various manufacturers. The key in doing so is EQing them.

LOL. Serves me right for not checking more often.

I went with the Boston Acoustics CS series.

The Jamo S42x series is an entry level series. Would strongly recommend you audition them if at all possible. Not sure what availability is like where you are at, but see if you can do a compare against the S606s or S608s. I think you'd be pleasantly surprised.

Hello,

My name is Simon and I come from a small country in Europe - Slovenia )
I have a question concerning the Jamo speakers model D570 is ... I wonder if they caught the Onkyo TX-8050 amplifier? I listen to all the music, Trance and many also. electronic music. How could these guys worked out speakers? I am choosing somewhere between: Jamo D570, Jamo C605 and Triangle Celius 202 ........ For any advice I appreciate it.

Sincerely,
Simon

I'm still having a real hard time finding a pair of either C-807 or 809's to use as a foundation for my speaker upgrade .

Can you point a man in the right direction ?

I was able to purchase mine quite easily through Direct Buy a few years ago when my family still had a membership there. I did call Klipsch group around that time to ask about local distributors in the NY area and found a place called Precision Products if I remember correctly. Direct buy had a better price at the time so I went with them.

Got me a set of Jamo S 426 HCS 3 speakers at a bargain price and I must say I'm very satisfied. Granted, I doubt it's "audiophile" quality, but the construction is sturdy, there's no vibrations or other parasite sounds you have on cheap speakers in the same price range, and the speakers themself are in reality made by Klipsch.

I'm glad you are happy with your setup. I picked out a set of these for my cousin and paired with Klipsch RW-12d sub, his setup sounds great!

Paired mine with the Pioneer S-21W subwoofer I already owned, works just fine, maybe I'll get a Jamo subwoofer someday for the sake of uniformity, but for now that will do the job

So basically it's this:
http://www.jamo.com/search/?sku=S426HCS3
and
http://www.pioneer.eu/eur/products/4...-21W/page.html

And receiver: http://www.pioneer.eu/eur/products/4...22-K/page.html

All speakers set to small (including the towers), crossover at 100hz.

A nice little system that I use for computer audio and watching movies on the computer with a Toshiba TV.

I lightly used them and looking to selling the whole 7 speaker set but not sure on what I should price them for. they are in perfect conditions but I no longer have the shipping boxes.

Thought I'd revive this thread with some thoughts on the Series 8 speakers which seem to get some attention on audio forums and blogs for their performance/price point.

Although not their flagship (the sexy Series 9), these speakers have been getting serious street cred after receiving the prestigious EISA best in class Best Buy Home Theater Speaker System for 2018-2019 and high praise from various audio blogs over the years.

Andrew Robinson dedicated a review of them about a year ago, and was thoroughly impressed with their performance, which pushed me to explore the brand and series. I eventually bought a set a few months ago when they went on sale. Adorama had the S-809 towers, S-803 bookshelfs, and S-83 center on sale for the ridiculous price of $400 (they retail around $1400). I've since purchased the matching S-8 ATM elevation speakers and a Klipsch 12" sub to complete the package. After having this system for a while now I've become completely impressed with this package. It delivers in every aspect. The sound is rich and full with clear detail, forceful bass and impressive imaging. I've had other tower speakers (Polk, Infinity) and large floor speakers (JBL) and this set blows those others away in performance. Their design is uniquely wedge shaped with a narrower face, which creates an interesting visual illusion. For some reason, when you toe the speakers inwards, it doesn't seem as awkward looking. Maybe it's just me. Also, the grills are completely magnetic and can be shifted upwards if you opt for the ATM speakers, creating a seamless face. Because the grills are magnetic, there's no surface mounting hardware on the face of the speakers, so if you like the look of bare speakers without screens, it won't distract. They actually look quite impressive without screens, but the tweed fabric looks very nice too.

The other unique feature are the ATM elevation speakers that sit on top of the towers or bookshelf speakers.They have small metal pins on the bottoms that plug into the top of your main speakers. The main speakers have these discrete metal holes on the top to accept the optional ATM speakers. This eliminates ugly wiring running down the back of the speaker and allows connection at the base of the main speaker along with the main posts. The ATM speakers themselves have the same matching tapered, wedge box design as the other speakers so they integrate seamlessly.

I'm curious if anyone else have this speaker system and your reactions/impressions.
