Features

5 Channel Speaker Package: The Jamo Studio 8 Series 5 Channel Speaker Package includes a pair of front bookshelf loudspeakers (S 803), a center channel loudspeaker (S 81 CEN), and a pair of rear bookshelf loudspeakers (S 801).

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.

Two-Way Driver Design: The Jamo Studio 8 Series loudspeakers utilize a two-way driver design, featuring soft-dome tweeters for smooth refined high frequencies and aluminized polyfiber woofers for balanced music low end sound. Each loudspeaker in the Jamo Studio 8 Series System is equipped with a 1" soft-dome tweeter featuring an integrated Waveguide that focuses the high frequency sound for dynamic, true-to-life reproduction,. The S 803 bookshelf loudspeakers feature a 5" woofer, while the S 801 bookshelf loudspeakers house a 4" woofer. The S 81 CEN center-channel loudspeaker employs two 4" woofers.

Bass Ports: The Jamo Studio 8 Series loudspeakers employ bass reflex (ported) enclosures for greater efficiency and better low frequency extension. The S 81 CEN center-channel speaker and the S 801 bookshelf loudspeakers utilize rear-firing ports, while the S 803 bookshelf speakers offer a front-firing port for more flexible placement options.

Compact Enclosure w/ Wood Accents: The Jamo Studio 8 Series loudspeakers are 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: Each Jamo Studio 8 Series loudspeaker comes with a fully magnetic grille (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 Jamo Studio 8 Series loudspeaker is equipped with binding-post speaker terminals. These binding-post terminals will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana plugs (single only). The S 803 front bookshelf loudspeakers are equipped with two sets of binding-post speaker terminals - one set for the S 803's tweeter & woofer, and the other set for when using the optional Dolby Atmos Elevation speakers from Jamo (sold separately). The terminals labeled "Main" will connect to your receiver's Front or Rear channel speaker outputs (depending on how you are using the bookshelf speakers). The terminal's labeled "Height" will connect to receiver's Height/Dolby Atmos channel speaker outputs (make sure you have your receiver's amplifier configured for Dolby Atmos).

Mounting & Placement Options: The compact cabinet of the Jamo Studio 8 Series loudspeakers allow 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 accessory list). This center-channel speaker is not designed or recommended for wall-mount installations.

  • Front Speaker Placement: The Jamo S 803be positioned so the bookshelf 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.
  • Center Speaker Placement: The Jamo S 81 CEN should be centered below or above your television, and centered with your main listening position. Ideally, it should be the same distance from the main listening position as your front speakers.
  • Rear Speaker Placement: The Jamo S 801 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).

Optional Dolby Atmos Elevation Speakers: Elegant metal fasteners atop the S 803 front bookshelf loudspeaker's cabinet provide a chic, modern industrial look, but also serve as a connection point for Jamo's S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos elevation speakers (sold separately). This patent-pending design allows for all of the wire connections on the back of the loudspeaker, avoiding unsightly and messy speaker wire going all the way up to the Atmos module - for cinematic, completely immersive Dolby Atmos sound while preserving the beautiful aesthetic of the Jamo Studio 8 Series.

Optional Powered Subwoofer: Add an optional powered subwoofer (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) for bigger bass response and a more immersive home theater experience from your movie soundtracks.
