Jamo's Sexy Dipoles

Walking through the Las Vegas Convention Center, Jon Iverson, Stephen Mejias, and I were stopped in our tracks by a set of sleek, colorful, sexy loudspeakers, Jamo's new dipole Reference R909s ($14,999/pair). I was struck by how nicely Jamo has covered the backs of the speakers with a handsome grille-cloth shroud, only to have Chris Otte tell me that "of course, very few customers will want to cover them up." I'm not so sure—I suspect most folks can do without the sight of the two woofers' nether regions.

The speakers boast cast-iron frames and bases, Scanspeak Revelator tweeters, SEAS hard conical cone (HCC) 5.5" midrange drivers, and twin 15" woofers. They are said to go down to 25Hz and can tolerate up to 800W. I'll take two—don't call me in the morning.

Paul Messenger writes more the new Jamos in the about-to-be-available Febraury 2006 issue of the paper Stereophile.

I concur. Superb coverage. It's also great the Stereophile editors maintain a presence on the forums and blogs. Kudos.
