Danish speaker company Jamo has enhanced the design details of its premium Concert 9 speaker series. The company says this next generation of the series combines an updated design aesthetic of “natural textiles and advanced acoustics” with the intended result of achieving a lineup of natural sounding speakers that will complement modern homes. Jamo has historically built up a reputation for sleek home-friendly designs, and is typically representative of the emphasis that several Scandinavian hi-fi companies put on eye-pleasing products.
The Jamo Concert 9 passive speaker line is clearly no exception and consists of two tower speakers, the C 97 II and C 95 II (MSRPs $825 and $550 ea), two monitors, C 93 II and C 91 II (MSRPs $700 and $550 per pair), a center channel, C 9 CEN II (MSRP $450 ea), and surround speakers, C 9 SUR II (MSRP $775 per pair).
Available in three furniture-grade finishes (black ash, white and dark apple), the speakers are designed to blend with modern home textures. Newly-developed magnetic grilles will be available in two tweed fabric options: white speakers featuring heather gray grilles, and black and dark apple speakers coming with charcoal gray grilles. The line also consists of satin-painted MDF baffles, polished chrome logos, and stabilizer cast metal feet to enhance both the visual and acoustical properties of the speakers.
The new loudspeakers include several proprietary technologies, including Hybrid Composition Conical Cones (HCCC) ensuring the speakers withstand being driven hard, Long Displacement Surround (LDS) for a more “open sound”, Anti-Diffraction WaveGuide (ADW) for impactful listening outside a sweet spot, and redesigned silk dome tweeters for lower distortion and better high-frequency extension.
Jamo Concert speakers are available now through select retailers and direct from Jamo.
