Jamo has updated its popular Concert E 8 Series of loudspeakers with new cosmetics and innovative audio technologies adapted from its high-end lines. The result is the elegant new Jamo C 60 Series, a range of affordable speakers that perform far above their price points.
Designed to deliver both high-impact home cinema and genuine musical reproduction, the C 60 Series includes eight models — two floorstanding speakers, two bookshelf models, a center channel, a dipolar surround speaker and two active subwoofers.
The C 60 Series benefits cosmetically from a redesigned grille/top-plate, a new diamond-cut aluminium logo, as well as the attractive Dark Apple and Black Ash finishes.
Common features throughout the range include:
*Decoupled Tweeter Technology (DTT) — fully de-coupled silk-dome tweeters for better high frequency reproduction.
*Waveguide — a unique tweeter faceplate that enables even sonic dispersion.
*Hard Conical Cones — a distinctive woofer cone design that doesn’t suffer audible breakup at working frequencies.
C 607 and C 605 Speakers
The C 607 is a powerful 3-way floorstanding bass-reflex loudspeaker equipped with a 1-inch tweeter, 6-inch midrange and a pair of 6-inch woofers. High-quality satin-chrome bi-wirable terminals are located on the rear of the cabinet and stabilization spikes are the same as used in Jamo’s flagship R 909 loudspeaker.
The C 605 is similar to the C 607 but without the midrange driver, making the C 605 a 2½-way speaker housed in a shorter cabinet. Low frequency response extends to a generous 37Hz.
C 603 and C 601 Bookshelf Speakers
The C 603 is the larger of two bookshelf models with a 2-way bass-reflex design. It may be wall-mounted with the supplied bracket. A single 5.5-inch mid/bass driver joins a 1-inch DTT tweeter.
The C 601 is a compact bookshelf speaker designed to squeeze into tight spaces. Perfect as a front or surround satellite, the C 601 features a 1-inch tweeter and a 4-inch mid/bass driver.
C 60 CEN Center Channel
A slim-line, 2-way bass-reflex center-channel speaker, the C 60 CEN features a pair of 4-inch woofers and a 1-inch tweeter. The drive units are timbre-matched with the other C 60 models.
C 60 SUR Dipolar Speaker
The C 60 SUR, a dipolar speaker designed for rear-channel home cinema surround sound, distributes sound evenly. Dipolar speakers often lack bass, but the C 60 SUR’s Midrange Phase Diffusion (MPD) incorporates a solution with a midrange driver wired in opposite phase to the driver on the other side of the speaker.
SUB 650/SUB 550
The SUB 650 and 550 active subwoofers deliver low-frequency enhancement when partnered with the C 603/C 601 bookshelf speakers. The sealed-box SUB 650 is the heaviest-hitting option, with a front-firing 12-inch long-throw woofer. With 650W of peak power, the SUB 650 reproduces low frequencies down to a 24Hz.
The SUB 550 subwoofer is perfect for lighter applications. It sports a 10-inch woofer in a slotted port cabinet and is driven by a 550W amplifier. A front-mounted control allows quick and easy volume adjustment without having to reach around to the back of the subwoofer cabinet.
