Bought these from amazon at 179 and immediately shipped them back. I was sorely disappointed with them, despite all the positive reviews. Maybe the 600 series jamos sound better, but the 426s sounded like crinkled tissue paper to my ears.
I got these for $129 from Frys as well. At that price they were an absolute steal. Talking about the audio quality, paired with a Denon 1612 these were much detailed and crisp than my Polk Monitor 40s. Hearing to the same music I'm used to revealed details that were not perceptible in the muddled up Polks. Even at $249 it is an okay deal for a surround speaker system with floorstanders
Thanks SlickDeals. I saved hundreds of dollars in purchasing stuff which I never needed in first place !
Total garbage. Not even worth $130. The worst speakers I've ever heard. Anyone that thinks these are better than Polks is on dope.
Have you ever compared the Jamo 426 with Polk Monitor 40 side by side ? I own both of these and have switched between them many times before deciding to get rid of the Polks. The Jamo's are a bit low on bass but aside from that they sound better than the Polks. Which receiver are you using to drive those and what exactly was wrong with your Jamos ?
In the end it could be just your personal preference. As some one said "Audio is subjective. If we were to be objective in selecting speakers everyone with the same budget will end up with the same pair of speakers" . But calling someone being on dope is going a bit too far.
some amps/receivers sound better with certain speakers as well. Denon and Klipsch were always my choice, Yamaha and Boston Acoustics were a good choice, Def Tech was good with both, and Mirage could go either way.
I never sold Boston Acoustics w/Denon, nor Klipsch w/Yamaha as they didn't sound good to me, nor the customers.
This could be the case w/Jamo and another brand other than Denon from one one poster mentioned.
It could be a matter of how efficient the speakers are, as well as the actual power from the amp.
