Jamo Studio7 Speaker Range Marks Company Rebirth

Jamo’s Studio7 loudspeaker range features a 7° time alignment tilt and timeless Scandi styling.

The Jamo Studio7 series is the company’s new range of passive loudspeakers and marks what it calls a “rebirth” for the brand, which was acquired by Klipsch in 2005 and saw the launch of the R909 a year later. EISA recognised that open-backed speaker design as the European High-End Loudspeaker of The Year 2006-2007.

Jamo’s Studio7 series features two sizes of floor-standing speakers (S7-27F, S7-25F), two types of bookshelf speakers (S7-17B, S7-15B) and two centre channel speakers options (S7-25C, S7-43C).

Beneath the minimalist aesthetic were are told that the Studio7 series is “brimming with technical innovation” - most strikingly is the new range’s 7° tilt. This is designed to ensure a coherent sound stage and time-align the acoustic centres of the drive units. This has been achieved by tilting the cabinet back and mounting it on a plinth that houses the speaker crossover. Jamo states that this implementation helps minimise the timing anomalies in a more traditional enclosure.

Next, an all-new 1-inch tweeter that features a copper faraday ring to increase sensitivity and reduce non-linear distortion is employed for high-frequency duties.

The company says that the tweeter and surround are made from fabric and promise excellent distortion characteristics and wide bandwidth for a non-fatiguing yet detailed sound. Additionally, we are informed that the high-frequency waveguide was optimised using Jamo’s exclusive COMSOL software model.

Meanwhile, the bass drivers feature embossed paper cones, high strength motor assemblies incorporating aluminium inductance shorting rings that are said to enhance power handling and lower distortion.

Jamo says that the aluminium shorting ring lowers distortion for clean, dynamic bass and increases power handling as the aluminium ring acts as a heat sink. It also adds that the embossed paper cone with “Thor’s Hammer” detailing increases the rigidity to improve the transient response for that snappy yet natural bass.

The Jamo Studio7 speaker cabinet features 15 mm MDF walls with an 18 mm front baffle and are apparently “critically braced to ensure a low degree of self-noise”. The brand boasts that this design allows you to hear more low-level detail and increases resolution when playing at any output level compared to competing products in their class.

Knitting the drivers together is a crossover that sits in a sealed plinth to mitigate interaction between the large bass driver magnet and the crossover inductors. The Studio7 also features Mylar and non-polarised electrolytic capacitors, along with iron and air core inductors and 25 W resistors.

Finally, Jamo’s Studio7 is finished in colours from the “chromatic palette of Scandinavian landscapes”. The result is a choice of Blue Fjord and Grey Cloud.

The Jamo Studio7 range is expected to be available from late October/ early November. Australian pricing has not yet been confirmed.

    applause awards

    Each time StereoNET reviews a product, it is considered for an Applause Award. Winning one marks it out as a design of great quality and distinction – a special product in its class, on the grounds of either performance, value for money, or usually both.

    Applause Awards are personally issued by StereoNET’s global Editor-in-Chief, David Price – who has over three decades of experience reviewing hi-fi products at the highest level – after consulting with our senior editorial team. They are not automatically given with all reviews, nor can manufacturers purchase them.

    The StereoNET editorial team includes some of the world’s most experienced and respected hi-fi journalists with a vast wealth of knowledge. Some have edited popular English language hi-fi magazines, and others have been senior contributors to famous audio journals stretching back to the late 1970s. And we also employ professional IT and home theatre specialists who work at the cutting edge of today’s technology.

    We believe that no other online hi-fi and home cinema resource offers such expert knowledge, so when StereoNET gives an Applause Award, it is a trustworthy hallmark of quality. Receiving such an award is the prerequisite to becoming eligible for our annual Product of the Year awards, awarded only to the finest designs in their respective categories. Buyers of hi-fi, home cinema, and headphones can be sure that a StereoNET Applause Award winner is worthy of your most serious attention.
