Jamo says that it has ‘re-imagined’ its Studio 8 speaker series, and the results were on show at the recent CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
The Jamo Studio 8 series includes three tower designs (S 809, S 807, S805), two monitors (S 803 and S 801), two centre-channels (S 83 CEN and S 81 CEN), two powered subwoofers (S 810 SUB and S 808 SUB), and a Dolby Atmos elevation speaker (S 8 ATM). The larger towers (S 809 and S 807) and the S 803 monitor have conductive metal fasteners on the top of their cabinets to attach and serve as terminals for the S 8 ATM elevation speaker.
The S 810 SUB and S 808 SUB subwoofers, which use 10-inch and 8-inch bass drivers respectively, are slimline units that can be placed vertically or horizontally against the wall and are slim enough to fit underneath many home furniture items.
All models in the new Studio 8 series are available in three furniture-grade finishes and are fitted with differently coloured magnetic grilles depending on the cabinet finish, with white cabinets having heather-grey grilles, and the walnut and black cabinets with charcoal grey grilles. ‘The Studio 8 Series has been a core Jamo line for decades, said Jill Escol of Klipsch Group, which owns Jamo. ‘This new Jamo Studio 8 series combines innovative contemporary designs, advanced acoustics, and balanced, natural sound at various price points and extra attention to detail has been paid to ensure this series has a clean, seamless appearance.’
