It's Danish and it's pronounced yamo. Don't disrespect my culture.
How does "apple" sound?
That's hard to say. Klipsch owns Jamo, but they have their own separate sound. Klipsch supposedly have a very bright sound while Jamo is more neutral. Again, this is just what I learned from a cursory glance at AV forums. There are different lines of Klipsch and Jamo speakers so it's hard to make a direct comparison which is better. Klipsch will almost always come with a price premium because of its reputation, while Jamo is not as well known. FWIW, people have been saying good things about Jamo speakers. They seem like solid values but not high end.

I bought Jamo speakers this week from previous deal and Yamaha costco receiver on sale. Is this receiver better than Yamaha costco? Should I get this instead? This combination seems to be cheaper than Yamaha costco!

Pretty solid deal IMO. I got the walnut Jamo set up last year for $400. And it only had two speakers in the towers. I also had to buy a receiver w/atmos and a sub after the speakers alone. Seems like you save money with this in the end for sure. All you need next is some speaker wire and you are good to go. The atmos speakers to put on top of the tower speakers are pretty nice too if you can find them!

How does Jamo compare to Klipsh? Are Klipsh worth the extra money?

I was really hoping this was a deal for a pair of S809. Guess I'll have to keep waiting, and hoping another sub-$300 deal pops.

It could be my bad experiences, but I will never buy an Onkyo receiver again. I picked up a TX-NR609 in 2012 and the HDMI board fried twice (under warranty) and now it's on the fritz again.

The first time they offered to "upgrade" the device to a slightly newer model for like $180 instead of repairing. It was still a refub unit and I looked on SD and Amazon and they were charging me full refurb price and I lost the original receiver.

Again, maybe a really bad model since it had a lot of other people reporting HDMI board burn-out issues. At this point, it's used for my workstation for music and light gaming since the optical works fine.

I concur about this. Klipsch is very sharp I'd say or bright. Sometimes too much and someone mentioned ear faitgue which can be true if watching back to back movies. Having said that only my center channel is Klipsch and I do love the fact how clear it is.

I bought these speakers set(without receiver) for $549 deal last time. I really liked them a lot, especially when watching Marvel action movies with these speakers is absolutely stunning. Also, I bought Yamaha RX-V685BL receiver based on SD users input, and few of my friends recommended too. Get these pair of speakers, I'm not sure about Onkyo receivers so cannot comment on that but seems like decent one

Klipsch is more into making very efficient reference speakers. That means any frequency input should output the same volume. Some claim they sound bright, but for something like a surround that can be useful since the lower frequencies aren't directional. Room placement can also influence the sound, and I suspect a lot of the complaints stem from that.

As for Jamo, they started as a Danish company. Instead of making reference, they tweak their sound signature to be pleasing to the ears. Elevated highs and lows, which is easier and cheaper to make. To accomplish that, they fall off quickly on the low end. Like a low note will sound fine, then the next note lower might sound half as loud. I haven't heard these towers, but the rest in the kit would do well paired with a good sub. A BIC PL-200 II (currently ~$260 on Amazon) would cover all of your home theater needs, and give those towers some breathing room so they can cover their intended range rather than fighting to dip low.

No and no. The Yamaha TSR-700 will run circles around this. If you need confirmation, look to YouTube for the dyno testing.
