Jamo’s new Con­Cert

Sound + Image - - News -

best tech­nolo­gies and per­for­mance Jamo could muster, then led by Preben Ja­cob­sen.

Jamo is now un­der the Klip­sch Group of com­pa­nies, and has re-en­gi­neered the Con­cert con­cept in-house to cre­ate a range of speak­ers de­signed from the ground up.

The new speak­ers were con­cep­tu­alised by in­dus­trial de­signer Kieron Dunk, who crafted Dan­ish-style en­clo­sures, for which be­spoke high-per­for­mance drive units have been en­gi­neered by Klip­sch’s David Wilkes Jr. with the goal of a highly dy­namic, de­tailed and ex­pan­sive sound with deep low fre­quen­cies.

The Con­cert se­ries fea­tures two ranges: the range-top­ping C 10 and en­try-point C 9. Both ranges in­clude floor­stand­ing, stand­mount and cen­tre-chan­nel speak­ers, with the C 9 se­ries fea­tur­ing dipole sur­round speak­ers. Jamo of­fers a range of high qual­ity sub­woofers to match.

The speak­ers fea­ture curved baffles and hand-pol­ished gloss black, gloss white or wal­nut wood ve­neer en­clo­sures, with metal outrig­ger feet and pol­ished chrome lo­gos. Fit-and-fin­ish qual­ity are out­stand­ing, and the ar­range­ment on the lower range — with the curved baf­fle blend­ing with a tra­di­tional par­al­lel-sided box — is a lovely bit of de­sign.

As you can read in our write-up on p59, we au­di­tioned the C109 flag­ship and it de­liv­ered a sound­field gen­er­ous in both the lat­eral and depth per­spec­tives, while bass power and over­all dy­nam­ics were highly im­pres­sive.
