Symphony 440 Design Group shares immense pleasure in being associated with Jamo, a high-tech audio collaboration presently based in China, famously known worldwide for their home theater setups in studio 8 series and atmos speakers. Being in the league for about 50 years, Jamo focuses on delivering speakers of contemporary style with high performance sound.
In 1966, carpenter Preben Jacobsen began the eternal journey of building Jamo speakers in his hen house at Glyngore, Denmark. In 1968, Preben’s brother-in-law Julius Mortensen joined him on his venture, thence naming the company Jamo, derived from the founder’s surname. By 1978, Jamo speakers had become a worldwide sensation and produced around one million loudspeakers. By 1994, Jamo speakers had marked its territory in history by becoming Europe’s largest speaker manufacturer. By 1998, Jamo achieved greater heights as to have been produced and sold more than 11.5 million units.
Since 2004, following the resignation of the director, Anders Hoiris, Jamo’s headquarters and production has been based at China. In 2005, Klipsch Audio technologies took over Jamo to accelerate global growth with multiple brands.
In 2018, Jamo speakers earned the prestigious EISA Best Product 2018-2019 award for its studio speakers, fondly used in major home theater setups. The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) is a collaboration between, currently, 55 of the most respected international specialist CE magazines. The association celebrates new products that combine the most advanced technology and desirable features with class-leading performance.
Jamo Speakers patented technological features:
Active Impedance Correction: Active Impedance Correction (AIC) is an innovative augmentation of former known ways of minimizing distortion in electrodynamic loudspeaker drivers. The effect of AIC is a clearer midrange with a markedly reduced roughness, especially during voice reproduction, an essential feature for speakers in home theater setup. Numerically, this amounts to a reduction of third order harmonic distortion in the order of 6dB (50% reduction).
BASH® amplifier: The subwoofers feature the highly coherent BASH® amplifier technology, which integrates the musical quality of class A/B amplifiers with the efficiency of class D amplifiers. BASH® technology translates into more efficient, yet more powerful amplification without any heat as those associated with conventional amplifiers.
Boundary Gain Compensation filter: Since any room amplifies at the lowest frequencies, the Boundary Gain Compensation filter compensates for the influence caused by the room at such low frequencies. The magnitude of amplification from the room depends on the room dimensions and the perceiver’s position in the room. Normally, amplification increases with closeness towards the wall, which increases the bass levels. The Boundary Gain Compensation ensures a linear in-room bass response with considerable flexibility to the position of the listener.
Unique shape of A7 cabinet minimizes standing waves: Minimizing standing waves is a major feature of any speaker to impart premium quality of sound. The A7 cabinet has been specifically developed to diminish the reflection of sound waves back and forth inside the cabinet. The multi-curved, multi-angled cabinet, hence, restricts the production of colored and unclear sound.
Down-firing woofer: This extraordinary feature minimizes one of the major barriers to good sound reproduction. To avoid resonating bass reproduction, loudspeakers must normally be placed away from the wall, often impractical in living rooms. When a woofer fires downwards, it couples with the floor making placement less critical. In other words, this speaker can be placed close to the wall.
DTT: DTT (Decoupled Tweeter Technology) is a mounting system specially developed by Jamo. One of the biggest hurdle in designing speakers is the prevention of unwanted cabinet vibrations from clouding or coloring. High frequencies are particularly susceptible. The ingenious Jamo DTT puts a pleasant end to this complication. By decoupling the tweeter from the rest of the loudspeaker, vibrations transmitted from the front baffle to the tweeter are reduced by more than 20dB, resulting in an uncommonly detailed and realistic reproduction of high frequencies.
Dual concentric diaphragm: The Jamo tweeter features a clamped dual-concentric diaphragm and a ventilated magnet system which extends the frequency range to as low as 1 kHz, allowing a smooth and seamless transition with the midrange. The voice coil is of copper-plated aluminium wire, combining the low weight of aluminium with the superior conducting qualities of copper.
Front baffle: The 1.7in/43mm thick front baffle is made from seven layers of MDF (Medium Density Fibre) board glued together under high pressure. The round shape provides for optimum working conditions for the drivers as it prevents diffraction and improves rigidity. The baffle is attached to a 57lb/26kg cast-iron base, housing the cross-over network and the bi-wiring XL binding posts which connects directly to the crossover network placed inside the base, thereby securing the best possible signal path. A solid double 5x60mm stainless steel brace with a special damper ensures a rock solid connection between the baffle and the base.
HCC (Hard conical Cone): The HCC technology (Hard Conical Cone) enables the driver to reach far beyond midrange frequencies before any significant cone break-ups occur. The material’s rigidity and the cone’s conical shape ensures clear and detailed sound with very less distortion, even at high sound pressures. In addition to this, the natural rubber suspension effectively prevents vibrations from travelling back to the diaphragm. Due to these features, a very well-controlled diaphragm is made which operates without any break down up to 4 kHz, well beyond its working range.
Lowloss x-over: Each of the Jamo speakers are designed with utmost tenderness with immense significance to each detailing. Hence, care has to be taken to limit the number of components in the filter to reduce its power consumption. The advantage of lowloss x-overs is clearer sound reproduction with lower distortion and higher sensitivity.
Mylar tweeter: The Mylar tweeter features great sonic qualities and is even moisture-resistant, making the speakers ideal for installation in any surrounding.
XBR (eXtended Bass Response): With the unique Jamo XBR (eXtended Bass Response) feature, the surround loudspeaker functions as a dipole in the treble and midrange, and as a bipole in the lowest bass, providing the diffuse surround reproduction of traditional dipole loudspeakers, but with full bass reproduction. This mechanism is greatly helpful in home theater setups for realistic sound reproduction.
LDS (Long Displacement Surround) design: The all-new Long Displacement Surround (LDS) design for woofers and midrange drivers deliver improved low-frequency response, leading to a more natural, open sound.
