Jamo is enhancing the modern design of its premium Concert 9 speaker series, combining an updated design aesthetic with natural textiles and advanced acoustics. The result is a lineup of balanced, natural sounding speakers that complement a living space, says the firm.
The Jamo Concert 9 passive speaker line consists of two tower speakers, the C 97 II and C 95 II, two monitors (C 93 II and C 91 II), a centre channel (C 9 CEN II), and surround speakers (C 9 SUR II).
Jamo Concert 9 speakers are available in three premium, furniture-grade finishes (black ash, white and dark apple), designed to blend seamlessly with modern textures and décor. New, premium magnetic grilles come in two natural tweed fabric options - white speakers feature heather gray grilles, and the black and dark apple speakers come with charcoal gray grilles. Finishing off the design are satin painted MDF baffles, polished chrome logos, and stabilizer cast metal feet.
The audio technologies featured in the new Jamo Concert loudspeakers include Hybrid Composition Conical Cones (HCCC) that ensure the speakers withstand being driven hard, while delivering clean and clear midrange sound; Long Displacement Surround (LDS) design for woofers and midrange drivers that deliver a clean transition between highs and lows, creating a more natural, open sound; Anti-Diffraction WaveGuide (ADW) technology that produces more immersive and impactful listening, even outside of the sweet spot; and redesigned silk dome tweeter diaphragms with extra-large surround that lower distortion for smooth high-frequency and extension.
Pricing is US$825 ea. for the C 97 IIs, US$550 ea. for the C 95 IIs; US$700/pr. for the C 93 IIs and US$550/pr. For the C 91 IIs; $450 for the C 9 CEN II centre channel; and US$775/pr. For the C 9 SUR II surround speakers.
