Jamo launches S 801 PM active speakers

Small footprint - big Hi-Fi

by Andy Bassett
With its Scandinavian roots and Klipsch affiliation, Jamo offers contemporary style and high-value audio and launches its latest pair of active bookshelf speakers for its popular Studio 8 series.
Despite their compact stature, the S 801 PM aims to output a full, balanced sound and starts by using the original Jamo S 801 passive speaker design as its base. Housed in each of the MDF cabinets, is a 1-inch soft dome tweeter with WaveGuide technology for a dynamic, powerful sound performance, plus an aluminised polyfibre woofer. The cabinets also feature rear-firing reflex ports to help control the bass elements.

Since active speakers have an integrated amplifier, they are a boon to those who don’t necessarily have the space for a separate amp or are perhaps not yet ready to get a bit more ‘nuts and bolts’ with separate components, they are therefore ideal in smaller rooms or as secondary audio systems.

Boasting an array of inputs including Bluetooth for streaming from compatible devices such as smartphones, optical for digital sources, USB to accommodate Laptops/PCs and stereo RCA inputs for more traditional analogue sources, the S 801 PM sees itself as a Hi-Fi system built into a pair of speakers.

Coming with a magnetic, woven grille and remote control and available in two matte vinyl finishes (black or white) with wood-grain accents around the tweeter and base, the S 801 PM are available for £289. The black finish is available now with the white version following later in the autumn.
