Great Sound Great Looks!
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I previously had the smaller version with 4" woofers (81C) and it wasn't bad but I felt it was missing something, so I returned it and got this one instead. This version sounds much better. The tweeter plays the highs and the 2 woofers play mids and lows. The highs are not bright. The speaker has a neutral sound. The bigger 5" woofers give a natural sound to the vocals and the bass is not punchy. I personally don't like too much bass on my center so this speaker is perfect for natural sounding vocals. I let the subwoofer handle the lows but if you don't have a sub, this center channel will sound fine when playing sound effects like gunshots. The speaker is loud enough to the point where I lower the center channel volume so it doesn't overpower the sound from my towers. I like the effects and background music coming from my front channels to be heard so i tweak the volume to my liking. This speaker pairs very well with my Jamo S 807 towers (which I love!) but most of all they all look great in white and have a high level of WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor). Is it the best? No, but considering the price range and the looks, these sound great. I hear that the bookshelves Jamo S 803 sound amazing. This would pair great with those bookshelves. I will be getting them shortly and will use them as my surround channels although they make great front speakers. Jamo is not as popular in the US market yet but soon they will be a force to be reckoned with in the home theater arena.
Pros: Neutral Sound Great for vocals Beautiful vinyl finish Looks great w/ or w/o grille Magnetic grille
Cons: None so far
