Absolutely not the case. I run the website. So let me clear up some misunderstandings.

Two things:
1) The measurements are ran through a system that does not implement a crossover. In fact, if I wanted to, I would have to create a filter in text format and import that in to the system. I've never done that... not sure where I would start. Therefore, the measurements have no crossover implemented.

2) I didn't say the speakers *couldn't* get below 80Hz. I said the output below this was relatively low. That is thanks to the modertae-Q bump at 80Hz. This speaker was designed to have a "punchy" sound. But that is where it ends. Aside from that, the output level of these speakers is not sufficient at lower frequencies to negate the need for a subwoofer. This is due to the high compression/distortion artifacts.


This speaker sounds bad. This speaker measures bad. This speaker *is* bad. The manufacturer outright lies about the ±3dB frequency range (covered in the review). They also lie about the sensitivity (they state it is 90dB; it is more like 84dB at standard conditions). The tweeter response is about 5-6dB higher than the midrange response. The bass is boosted around 5dB from 80Hz to the midrange. There's a definite "V-curve" to these speakers that sounds annoying. I suppose if this is all you know then you don't know any better. My goal is to educate the consumer on what they are getting. And in the case of the Jamo S807, it isn't anything worthwhile. Don't be upset with me. Be upset with Jamo. If you own these speakers and are happy with them then great. But there are absolutely issues with these speakers that should keep a newcomer from purchasing them.

I don't post here much at all. Didn't know this thread existed until someone pointed me to it. So if you're going to try the bait method in to arguing subjective, you won't get anywhere with me. I measure and listen. I provide my opinion on the sound and the objective data. I don't argue with what people hear. I just tell them how a speaker performs and help understand what they are getting with their money.

I've had more time to listen to music on my S807 pair and while they sound much better with Yamaha's YPAO flat EQ, the high frequencies can sound very sharp at times. I've heard the S803 have a V-curve and I'm assuming the same applies to the S807. They're not bad for movies though.

Pretty much the same story for all HT speakers. If you listen to a lot of music then you really need to use speakers designed primarily for music.

Yeah, I agree. I bought a pair of the S807 a few weeks ago during the last deal. They are very, very bright, even hooked up to my vintage Sansui receiver (which tends to make things sound mellower). They tire my ears out quickly when listening to music. But as HT speakers hooked up to my modern Yamaha receiver they sound great for the money.

Wow... I thought that was each. They look extremely nice for that price point. I've never seen or heard these, so can't comment on the quality.

I have quite a collection of audio equipment. I've bought and sold a lot over the years. It would cost me close to the asking price just to ship something that size. I don't know how they do it. Must get big discounts on shipping.

I bought the Jamo 807 towers and I love them. I have them paired with an CB-5 energy center and Energy Micros in the rear and they sound awesome for movies and games. I would highly recommend a center with these rather than just a 2.0 setup since the vocals do get a little muffled. Also I have had zero need to use my subwoofer with these as the bass from the towers is excellent.

I bought a pair of S 807 on the last deal but I returned them. They are really not good at anything, highs are fatiguing, no mid bass and not exciting speakers at all. Compared them with the klipsch rp 500m and JBL studio 530. I would recommend to save a bit more a get a better speaker. I got the rp 500m for $250 on amazon warehouse deal in like new condition and $300 for Jbl 530 from the sales they often have.

Unfortunately I have to deal with people like yourself who can't find the modicum of reading comprehension needed to understand what words mean.

Atmos Ready Does not mean Atmos equipped.

Would it make sense to pair these with the Jamos Ceiling Speakers that were on the front page a few days ago? the 8.5CS ones.

I don't know this reviewer, but I'm not sure I agree with him completely. One thing that threw me off is he said that bass isn't heard below 80hz and that is not the case with my setup as I tested them down to 40hz which isn't great, but not nearly as bad as 80hz.
