Jamo DVR-50 Discontinued ????????


Active Member
Phoned Unbeatable yesterday to arrange to return my faulty DVR-50 and they said that it had been discontinued so my only option was to get my money back!

Does anyone know if this is true?

I really wanted a replacement the same, but looks like I will have to get something else! Can anyone recomend anything as good for the same price?

If you cans tump up a few extra quid look at Av-Sales for the Jamo.

I bought mine from them and recommend them.

I was returning my DVR50 to JL for a replacement due to a noisy internal fan.

Was to pick up the replacement this weekend, just been phoned by JL and told that they have just been instructed by head office to take the DVR50 from the shelves.

I am now getting a refund instead.

Pity as apart from the noisy fan, the unit was excellent, but I don't want to source from elsewhere if they are having problems that requires all the stock to be pulled.

Pretty strange. You'd think if it was a serious problem, like catching on fire or something, they would contact us and withdraw them properly?

Maybe Jamo have just reaslied they can make more money selling speakers, and the developement costs for a DVD player werent worthwhile.

But surely they'd have to carry on selling them to recover the developement costs?

I hadn't thought it could be something as serious as them catching fire! Always thought it was just because of a few bugs!

Wonder if they'll make anymore firmware updates for them.

If I remember (nto very likely) I'll ring Jamo tonight and find out for sure.

I think they did quite a bit of work on it! Designed a new front end, new menu system, prog-scan, much better sound than a Kiss unit etc. I know what you mean tho, it wouldn't have cost anywhere near as much to develope as a brand new machine!

Just got this e-mail in from Jamo.

Dear Mr Saunders,

The rumours you heard are NOT true. The DVR50 is a huge success and there are not plans to discontinue it.
