Excerpt: Had this Jamo speaker setup for 2 years now & its going great. For a complete 5.1 setup that retails under $1000, I havent heard anything in that price range to rival its build or sound quality. The amp is great, with volume, phase & 1 other control. Plenty of low & mid range oomph. Crank your amp way up and they wont distort. Jamo are European, originally making tweeters & speaker cones for other big speaker brands, till they started making their own.
