Nope. Lowest price from Amazon has been $325. $199 was from third party sellers and with who knows how much in shipping charges.

The white rarely is in stock for 199, black mostly, and for this price of whites and sold by Amazon I would bite the bullet. But I already own Blacks

I purchased this (white) in November for $239, 3rd party. Shipped and received within 4 days. I had been kind of watching for a while with no price variation.

For those wondering about the sound - excellent. I have used Daytons, Micca, Energy, Sony, and Polks. These are my overall favorites (some of that might be the looks and newness). I am 2/3 movie, 1/3 music. I am not going to pretend I know a lot a about speakers, but these fill the room and make movie watching super enjoyable.

They are very crisp with dialogue and have energized sound. My wife even commented on how excellent they sound (and look)….that was huge.

Someday I would like to upgrade to something like Paradigm's, but I am very pleased with this set and will keep them for a while.

Yep, white doesn't usually drop in price when the black does…

I have heard a lot of "value speakers" as well, and I agree with you. Now I have the large set that goes on sale for 399. The magnetic grills are a nice touch. Make sure you give a little break in time and these speakers are not fatiguing at all. Now I have the atmos speakers in the front and they submerge you in sound. After every 4k movie I always think to myself, "Why would I ever go to a theater again?"

Probably not. Likely a lateral move unless you damaged them but you need to mention the series? Lsim, etc

Probably depend on size of listening area and sub situation.

I bought them in white from this exact seller "Acoustic Sound Design" for $229 last year. No problems with the seller.

Having heard both, unless you can't/won't have the space for towers, the Adorama deal would give you better performance worth the extra cost IMO.

As a matter of fact if you can wait for the deal that doesn't include the sub for less would be even better, especially if you already have a sub.

Same boat here, I actually bought:
Jamo Studio Series S 803 in White (from this thread) off Amazon for $239
Jamo C 912 Subwoofer in White off Amazon for $219
Jamo S 8 ATM in White off eBay for $175

Now I've just learned the $239 Studio Series S 803 set comes with the S 81 center, whereas the $399 Adorama S 809 set comes with S 83 center ( https://slickdeals.net/f/15458212-jamo-speakers-jamo-s-809-pair-jamo-s-801-pair-jamo-s-83-black-399-free-s-h-at-adorama ).

The S 81 costs $89 vs. $114 for S 83 (difference $25).
The S 809 are floorstanding speakers and cost $359 vs $139 for S 803 (difference $220)

For $160 price difference, you get $245 worth of upgrades. If you have an Amex card you might also have an Amex offer for $25 back when you spend $250 at Adorama (which I do) so that brings my cost down another $25 to $135 additional for the upgrade.

I have now purchased the Adorama set as well; I plan to do a mix-match.

Living room:
S 809 Front Left/Right (Black) + S 8 ATM Atmos (White)
S 83 Center (Black)
C 912 Sub (White)
S 803 Surround Left/Right (White)
Onkyo TX-NR6050 Receiver

Master bedroom:
S 801 Front Left/Right (White)
S 81 Center (White)
S 801 Surround Left/Right (Black)
Existing Sub (Black)
Denon AVR-S530BT Receiver
