    Hi All,

    pretty hacked off now. ordered some A102s from Zebra Computers last week, assured they were in stock, chap rings up saying the last two sets (1 was mine) were pinched by an amazon order. he reckons that nobody will have any until the 18th Feb.....

    I have an Onkyo 605 sitting here now without any mates.....!!

    Can anyone suggest and alternative for around the same price or perhaps up to £250 ? that are just as good, and in black ?

    Fed up now...

    Im sure im not the only one !

    Join the club mate. Haha perhaps we can all sulk here together. Perhaps call the thread "moaning/bitter Jamo hunters" or something :rotfl:.

    Anyway back to business... :rolleyes:

    If your budget is max £250 you will struggle to find anything that really surpasses or matches the Jamos. Perhaps the Cantons at a similar price point in the power buy thread... You could check there.

    Apart from that, it's all down to how patient you are I guess. If you can wait it out I'm sure you'll be happy with the Jamos. But then who's to say Jamo won't delay another month? :suicide:

    Tough call. I'm giving it till midweek before I go the Canton route.

    :hiya:

    The chap reckoned that BBG (Jamo distributors) told him that since the magazine reviews came out they all sold out within the week...


    Out of interest which Cantons are you thinking of getting ?

    I have seen plenty of people ordering them but nobody commenting on how good they are yet.....Unchartered waters I think...

    Regards

    I'm considering CD102's my budget is £300. I haven't really heard any negative comments from Canton owners on these forums.

    The Jamo`s can be had for £250 in any Sony shop.

    I walked into mine the other day and walked out with a set of them under my arm there and then.

    Well worth the money. :)

    I to have been waiting since November, so I saw on amazon yesterday that they had 5 in stock, so I thought sod it and ordered them, they arrived at 10:30am today (need to replace kettle lead for uk plug), I paid a bit more but who knows when they would have arrived? I have checked amazon today, they have 3 silver in stock but no black. They cost a bit more but I was fed up of waiting, they were around £245 with next day delivery.

    Your not the only one Jules. Had my 605 sat waiting since Jan 2nd. Waiting is THE worse thing!!!

    Been waiting for the Cantons myself since Jan 2nd :( Check stock levels if time is of the essence but can understand the looking elsewhere part.

    Thanks very much! That is an absolute steal. I'm putting my name down for those today. I think you're spot on about the distributor, so I've no qualms in ordering a set.

    Cheers! :smashin:

    None in stock. Just called. They were expecting 20 in today but have been told none will be available for about 4 weeks. They have 18 preorders waiting for stock.

    Well and truly fed up with waiting for the Jamos.

    Have ordered a set of Canton CD102s from the powerbuy thread. £290 but aparently around the same standard as the KEF 2005 range.


    Good luck all.

    Hi,

    I spoke to Jake (powerbuy thread) and In his opinion the CD102 was comparable to the KEF2005. Of course this is only his opinion

    I ordered them at 1030 yesterday and recieved them at 0820 this morning ! FREE delivery.

    I have opened the box and and am amazed at the quality of these speakers. They are matt black brushed aluminium and are very heavy. The speaker connections are very precise and sturdy. They also come with swivel brackets to hang them to the wall.

    The Sub is guranteed for 2 years and the rest 5 years.

    I am a fan of german build quality and reliabiliy (Hence the owning of a VW Golf and Transporter van) and these Beauties typify german quality !

    I will set them up tomorrow and post a report on how they perform...

    Vorsprung derk Teknic......(or something like that :smashin:)

    Heh, I had an Onkyo before xmas and had to wait about 3 weeks to get my Jamo's, everywhere was out of stock! But that was okay, xmas at the parents took away one week. I got mine from Lambda tek for £186 delivered, pretty good service too. They have an e-mail notification for when they're in stock (can't pre-order)

    I did phone up AVSL at the time, it was roughly the same price give or take £10. In the end I went with Lambda tek because I'd heard of them and not AVSL. They don't really have a strong internet precense when I was looking for the speakers...
