Natural sound and a solid value

Looking for a pair of inexpensive bookshelf speakers for your stereo or home theater system? The Jamo S 801s' 4" woofer and 1" soft dome tweeter offer clear, natural sound that's easy on your wallet. I especially like how these compact speakers look with their magnetic grilles removed — their tasteful wood accents give them a fresh, modern look.

Features

Jamo Studio 8 Series: The new Jamo Studio 8 series of loudspeakers has been engineered and designed to complement and seamlessly blend in today's modern environments and fashionable living spaces. Contemporary material and finish choices accentuate the clean, minimalist lines of this European design, while the compact cabinet architecture is an ideal solution for today's urban living environments.

Note: The Jamo Studio 8 series consists of Floorstanding loudspeakers (S805/S807/S809), bookshelf loudspeakers (S801/S803), center channel speakers (S81C/S83C), Dolby Atmos elevation speaker (S8ATM), and powered subwoofer (S808SW/S810SW).

Two-Way Bookshelf Loudspeaker: The S 801 bookshelf speaker features a 1" soft-dome tweeter for smooth, refined high frequencies, and a 4" aluminized polyfiber woofer for balanced, musical low end. The integrated WaveGuide focuses the high frequency sound for dynamic, true-to-life reproduction, while the rear-firing slot port allows for better low frequency extension.

Compact Enclosure w/ Wood Accents: The S 801 is specifically designed and engineered to provide exceptional output and balanced, full sound in almost any application despite it's small cabinet size. Wood accents give the speaker cabinet a handcrafted, natural look.

Magnetic Grille: The S 801 comes with fully magnetic grilles (no mounting holes or push pins) for a clean, minimalistic front-baffle design, while the large woven linen grille cloth features a heavy texture which finishes off the loudspeaker's modern look.

Binding Post Terminals: Each bookshelf loudspeaker is equipped with a set of binding-post speaker terminals. These binding-post terminals will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana plugs (single only).

Applications: The Jamo Studio 8 Series S 801 bookshelf loudspeakers can be used for the front or rear channels in a home theater system, or standing alone in a strictly two-channel stereo system.

  • Placement Options: As front channels in a home theater setup or as a 2ch speaker system, the S 801 should be positioned so the loudspeakers create an equidistant triangle between the speakers and your main listening position. They should be positioned no less than 6' apart and at ear level in your seated listening position. As rear speakers in a home theater setup, the speakers should be positioned directly to the left and right of your main listening position, or just behind the main listening position at a 20° angle, plus placed approximately 6' above the floor (measuring from the top of the cabinet).
  • Mounting Options: The compact cabinet of the S 801 allows for extremely versatile mounting options on a table-top, shelf, or stand. Four integrated rubber feet provide a non-slip surface. The bookshelf speakers do not provide any hardware to wall-mount the speaker, but can be wall-mounted using side-clamping wall-mount brackets (sold separately - see Accessories Tab).

Inexpensive; to replace a set of 30 year old speakers to a tuner that still works great. One of the old speakers has a blown cone...time to replace. [ Howard  Jan 02, 2019 ]

Q
Would these work for an audio technica turntable?
[ Sydney  Nov 04, 2019 ]
2 answers
A
Yes. I don't see why they wouldn't. But I have not tried them with a tyrntable Gary
[ Gary M.  Nov 22, 2019 ]
A
Yes those would sound nice with vinyl. They are passive speakers though so you would need a receiver (with a phono input) to power them.
[ Cosmo  Nov 12, 2019 ]  Staff
Q
Do these speakers work wireless with Sony STR-DN1080?
[ genefeldt  Oct 26, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
No. These are conventional passive bookshelf speakers so, they will need to be connected to a receiver/amplifier with speaker wire. For additional assistance and personalized recommendations, feel free to contact us directly by phoen or through our online chat service: https://www.crutchfield.com/support/ContactUs.aspx

Do these speaker have good midrange I'm looking for a book shelf that has great midrange punch?
[ RTMoore  Jul 07, 2019 ]

They are fair at midrange so I also added a pair of Minx Mini's to have full sound.
