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).

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

Q
How do I connect these to a preamp with RCA plugs?
[ Michael  Oct 30, 2020 ]
1 answer
A
These speakers are passive and require a amplifier wit at least 60W output per spec. I doubt your pre-amp can drive them directly. There are a a number of Class D amplifiers with RCA inputs that output 60W that you can buy on Amazon for under $100. Then you can connect the speaker terminals to the output terminals of the amplifier with plain old 2-conductor speaker wire. If you absolutely must connect to your pre-amp, the easiest way is to buy a RCA/RCA cable and clip off the RCA connectors on one end. Then you can expose the copper wires on the clipped side and insert into the speaker terminals directly or use banana plugs and insert into speaker terminals! Good Luck!

Q
Can I connect two of them to digital piano Yamaha P125?
[ Artikm  Jul 31, 2020 ]
2 answers
A
These are passive speakers. You will a small amp to drive them to produce any volume. Check the YAMAHA user manual to see if it can drive passive speakers.
[ BHARAT  Aug 01, 2020 ]
A
If your digital piano has an internal amp with speaker outputs yes.
[ CHRISTOPHER  Aug 01, 2020 ]
Q
What connectors come in the box?
[ Curious G  Jul 16, 2020 ]
4 answers
A
If you mean connectors to be attached to the speaker wires, it does not bring anything. The speaker connection is binding post to connect bare end or banana plug. I hope this will help you. Enjoy it...
[ VICTOR  Jul 17, 2020 ]
A
Nothing. You have to buy your own connectors.
[ Marvin  Jul 16, 2020 ]
A
None, they have standard combo banana plug/binding posts
[ Robert  Jul 16, 2020 ]
A
Only the dual-option connectors built into the back (for wire or plug) as seen in the close-up pics at the Crutchfield website.
[ John A.  Jul 16, 2020 ]
Q
is it bluetooth?
[ Madison  Mar 10, 2020 ]
4 answers
A
No, just wires.
[ Keith  Mar 10, 2020 ]
A
Nope, they're passive speakers, so you'll need an amplifier to use them.
[ Chase  Mar 10, 2020 ]
A
No.

A
No
[ James R.  Mar 10, 2020 ]

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.
