You're absolutely right, why didn't I think of that?

They are real speakers. Most probably, they have full-range drivers.

I assumed they were, but it's kind of creepy at the same time.

My S 506 HCS3 System comes today.

Looking forward to comparing the S 506 to my E 680's.

Very nice set-up. With a sub, the E660's would be great for HT use. What are your thoughts on the center? I managed to find one on eBay, but it was a different finish than the rest of my speakers so I passed. I also thought it would be a little underpowered (and it was a little over-priced imo).
I woudl have preferred the center to be the same watt range as the florstanding speaker. but they didn't have any other models and at the time i couldn't find any other jamo center speakers with the same enclosures to match as well as good prices. So i went with it.

It seems to be fine to me, but then i am not the best with audio either so i wouldn't know if its good or not compared to other speakers.

Well the E6CEN.5 is the center that was designed for the E-6 series, so it will be the best match for the 660's. Besides using a 660 as your center of course.

Jwilly, I personally like the looks of the 5 series better, but let me ask you which has the better sound?

PS, yes they are Danish.

Any Jamo owners on this thread has heard that mix of E 660 and S 60 CEN?

Thank you, I really liked the look of the rounded cabinets on the E 6 series. The Dark Apple finish looks really good too.

Thanks again. The S 506's do not have a woofer on the side, but the S 606 does. From what I was able to find on the internet, the S 506 package that I have is the European equivalent to the S 606 package offered in the US. With the sole exception of the added woofer to the S 606.

They are great speakers and yes, they are Danish. And unless I am mistaken, they are the number one speaker manufacturer in Europe. In addition to Energy and Jamo, Klipsch also owns Mirage.

I like the look of the E series a little more as they aren't your typical, rectangular cabinet. Plus, I'm not a big fan of the reflective/shiny (can't think of the proper term right now) surface of the S series.

Sound wise though they are pretty similar. Both are warm sounding (as are all Jamo speakers), I've listened to both towers for hours with music with no fatigue. I've yet to really crank the S series yet as my fronts though. The dual 8" woofers of the E 680 produce more bass than the S 506, but I think the bass is tighter with the 506. I also was using floor spikes with the S series, so that might have played a part in it too.

I'll try to get a movie in tomorrow with the 506's up front and I'll let you know more afterward.

I have the S 500CEN, which according to a spec sheet I tracked down (as well as the manual that came with it) is identical to the S 60CEN. If there is a timbre difference between the two, I can't hear it. They sound very good together.

Also, wwstereo can order E 680's in Dark Apple. They take about two weeks to come in, but it is a beautiful finish. They can (or at least used to be able to) get the S 60CEN in Dark Apple too.

There has been one or two E 6CEN.5's that have came up on eBay in the last month, but they seemed overpriced to me. Plus, with only 50 watts, it seems kind of underpowered to me as well. Here are the specs for it. I do like the look of the E 6CEN.5 more than the S 60CEN though.

See my quick review above for my thoughts on using the S 60CEN with the E series.
