    Hi
    I wasn't particularly on the look out for a sub, but when i passed my local Supa Electronics store, i noticed they had the Jamo SW200 (ex display) for £50 and was wondering if it was any good?
    I've had a look around, and i can only find a review of the SW400 (a very poor review).

    My current set up is: Pioneer 808 Receiver, Mission One Cinema pack speakers (though i've replaced the fronts with a pair of 701's). I've never owned a sub before.

    My room is approx 12' x 11' x 9'

    So any thoughts on the SW200?

    Cheers.

    Mark. :)

    Whilst I have not seen (or heard) this particular sub, I have owned two JAMO subs from their E range and wasn't impressed with either. Whilst the specifications often look good on paper, in my experience they don't 'deliver' in use. Most hi-fi shops I know aren't keen on their subs either, suggest you would be better off purchasing something a little better second hand: have a look in the classifieds.
