Loudspeakers Jamo S 608 + Center

In relation to the other box, the 608 by jamo is a thicker one. Well over one meter high, ranks the pillar in a size, which is typically reserved for much more expensive boxes made entirely in the far East.

Who now thinks, yuck, this part of the giant looks definitely cheap, is pleasantly surprised. The housings are mostly “only” foiled, but strikingly clean put together, the edges angled front even over a large area.

A hood trimmed mirror on the front of the boxes will bring even a touch of luxury in the game. Cantilevered metal feet enjoy mechanics conscious high-Ender in the base area. Remaining doubts as to the processing eliminate high resolution photos on the website of the manufacturer.

A higher usage of the material reveals in this field only the Nubert more Beefy acting level when approaching, although their gross volume only around 17 percent larger.

Its quite slim appearance owes the jamo a laterally bass drivers in the 10-inch professional format.

The bass side allows a more streamlined form

Midrange coupled equal three sounding the cooling metal tabs are present, Sound recording. With their grandiose level reserves (measured 110 decibels) flanked by a tweeter with brand-typical large-scale went away powerful to the point the jamo from the start. If necessary a crossroads of the title of the Yello-booklet CD with an authority that parts of the College from the grin and wonder no longer came out into the room, similar to volume in proof and power-obsessed as the Nubert, there pulste the 608.

That a constructive focus on coarse dynamic virtues has not only advantages, the comparison was with the monitor audio. The smaller, barely less highly resilient competitor sounded while bass less daunting, for it but more clearly and cultivated.

The corresponding Center: Jamo S 60 CEN

In the mode of “Phantom” (in the Speak management of the receiver to select), the multichannel decoder assigns the Center signal equally to the front speakers. The electric redirection works splendidly especially in newer receivers. She sounds minimal less dynamic and space exactly as a perfectly customized real Center. If it is however very different or sound verschlechternd is a furniture niche, then the electrically generated is often superior to the physical Center.

60 CEN by jamo has little chance against the brilliantly playing column only as a set with rear and front speakers (1400 euro) available S. The stand box operating with the exception of the tweeter with other baffle and chassis formats sounds worlds richer and stimulus than the comparatively small spirit-Center, although the only 40 cm wide bar with 105 decibels is actually quite level for its size.
