About the Jamo S 805

One of the best tower values around

Looking for a pair of modestly priced tower speakers for your stereo or home theater system? The Jamo S 805s are an excellent option to consider. Each one sports a 5" woofer and 1" soft dome tweeter for clear, natural sound with music and movie soundtracks. I especially like how these floor-standers look with their magnetic grilles removed — their tasteful wood accents give them a fresh, modern look.

Expectations Exceeded

As a hobbyist audiophile (aka audiophile with a marginal budget), I'm constantly looking for ways to improve my listening experience (without breaking the bank). I currently have a Technics 5100 turntable, Sansui G5700 receiver and use a Mica OriGen G2 USB DAC when streaming music from my laptop (via Tidal). My speakers for the past year have been the Fluance Signature Series bookshelf speakers. For the money (~$200), they have met most of my music listening needs - but have always felt like they were missing something (mainly more punch at the low end). So enter the Jamo S 805's. I recently received some recognition awards at work - which I was able to convert to Crutchfield gift cards. These were burning a hole in my pocket....so, I started to evaluate some speaker options. After much thought, I decided to give the Jamo's a try. I figured if they did not meet my music listening needs - I could easily add them to my home theater setup and go back to my Fluance bookshelfs. Well...first impressions...WOW! These are a ton of fun to listen to. They meet my music listening needs/wants and provide that 'something extra' the Fluance bookshelf's lacked. These have a small footprint - but produce big sound with enough low end that a sub-woofer is not needed. The highs get close to being too harsh - but they are not difficult to listen to. I'm excited to hear how they continue to sound as I continue to put them through their paces. These are a great

Pros: -Dynamic Sound -Plenty of low-end punch -Great looking speaker -Small footprint -Great value

Cons: -Not many at this price point -Highs can get close to being a bit harsh

These are the first floor-standing speakers I've owned and I couldn't be happier. Great range of sound. Doesn't hurt that they look super sleek. Definitely recommend, especially as a first pair of "real" speakers.

Jamo S 805

Crutchfield customer from Griffith, IN on 12/19/2018

The Jamo S805 is the "best speaker" I have ever had. Right out of the box it outperformed my other speakers costing in the $4,000 range. The bass, midrange and treble "blend" excellently with each other. Every instrument is crystal clear with nice separation. There is also a very warm tone. I have been doing audio for 40 years, and have a keen ear for sound. Go Jamo ! What a great company !

Pros: Everything in the soundstage is excellent.

Cons: Only an average looking speaker as far as wood-grain quality.

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 Floorstanding Loudspeaker: The S 805 floorstanding speaker features a 1" soft-dome tweeter for smooth, refined high frequencies, and a 5" aluminized polyfiber woofer for balanced, musical low end. The integrated WaveGuide focuses the high frequency sound for dynamic, true-to-life reproduction, while the front-firing slot port allows for better low frequency extension and flexible placement.

Compact Enclosure w/ Wood Accents: The S 805 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 805 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 floorstanding 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 805 floorstanding 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 805 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. 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.
  • Mounting Options: Each floorstanding speaker comes with four mounting feet which will need to screwed into the bottom of the loudspeaker's enclosure. There are indentions on the bottom of the cabinet to indicate where the feet mount, but there are no pre-drilled holes. Self-tapping screws are included to secure the feet to the speakers. Each mounting foot consists of a metal plate and rubber pad to protect your floors.
Note: Do not use the speakers without the feet installed. The feet add greater stability and aid in higher quality sound reproduction. Spike feet are not included.
