Overview

Our take on the Jamo S 8 ATM

Jamo has pulled off something pretty slick with the S 8 ATMs. These compact Dolby Atmos® enabled speakers attach to the top of compatible Jamo bookshelf and floor-standing speakers, and provide upward-firing special effects for movie soundtracks.

Easy to achieve overhead sound effects

Jamo has pulled off something pretty slick with the S 8 ATMs. These compact Dolby Atmos® enabled speakers attach to the top of compatible Jamo bookshelf and floor-standing speakers, and provide upward-firing special effects for movie soundtracks.

Each speaker has customized connectors on the bottom that plug directly into the matching speaker below. (The matching "base" speaker has an extra set of input terminals for your receiver's Atmos channel.) Sound effects bounce off the ceiling and down to your ears, putting you right in the thick of the action. Pretty cool, right?

SNAP IN SPEAKERS

Bob from Visalia, CA on 5/29/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The pictures in the ad did not show the back of the speakers, and it wasn't until I received them, that I found out, they are meant to be snapped into certain floor speakers. There are no posts on the back to insert or screw down any speaker wires. I called Crutchfield and asked for return labels (I bought 2 sets), and they sent them to me. But I did speak to someone in Support, who told me I can still use these by wrapping the speaker wires around the metal posts (that snap into a floor speaker), so that's what I did, along with throwing some black tape around them to keep the wires in place. As for how they sound, they are great. One set was an open box sale and the other set was a scratch and dent sale, so they saved me some money, but both sets were in perfect condition. They are not the best looking speakers out there, and they are a little bigger than most, but I like them. But to be honest with you, had I seen the back of the speaker without any way to connect the wires, I wouldn't have bought them.

Pros: Good price. Excellent sound. Good quality material.

Cons: They should have been listed (in bold letters), SNAP ON SPEAKERS

They look great and were very easy to add to my system. They do what they are designed to do. I'm looking forward to more movies and shows coming out in Dolby Atmos.

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).

Dolby Atmos Elevation Speakers: Recreate the incredible cinematic experience of Dolby Atmos with the S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker, which reflects Dolby Atmos height effects off the ceiling down to the listener, to create a truly stunning, 3-dimensional surround sound experience.

  • 4" Polyfiber Woofer: The Jamo S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is outfitted with a top-firing 4" Polyfiber woofer with rubber surround.
  • Sealed MDF Cabinet: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker features an acoustic suspension (sealed) MDF cabinet wrapped in a black vinyl with wood accents, and comes with a woven linen cloth grille.

Compatibility: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is only compatible with Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers. It does not offer any standard type of speaker terminal connector to be used with other loudspeaker systems.

Discrete Connections: Elegant metal fasteners atop the cabinet of Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers provide a chic, modern industrial look, but also serve as a connection point for the Jamo 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.

Note: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is only compatible with Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers. It does not offer any standard type of speaker terminal connector to be used with other loudspeaker systems.

Dolby Atmos Certified: Dolby Atmos takes surround sound to a completely new level, by adding the third dimension of height to the two dimensional front/back left/right 5.1 or 7.1 sound mix. In Dolby Atmos, the floor speakers create the sound "bed" and the Dolby Atmos Enabled elevation speakers are fed a separate, discrete signal to move "sound objects" around the room with pinpoint accuracy. The effect is totally convincing, and really elevates the home cinema experience to new heights.
