Jamo S 426 HCS 3 Home Theater System
Jamo’s long-standing reputation for great value for money in high-performance, highly affordable loudspeaker systems is well-deserved and confirmed once again by the Jamo S 426 HCS 3 surround system. The Jamo secret is simple: thanks to a carefully coordinated and balanced engineering effort, the Jamo S 426 HCS 3 loudspeaker system delivers room-friendly good looks and sound quality that is extremely rare at the modest asking price.
The S 426 floorstanding speakers feature dual 5 ½” bass/midrange drive units in a reflex-optimized enclosure and a low resonance 1” tweeter mounted in a Jamo Waveguide. The result is a punchy, yet refined, and detailed sound that will make your movies and music more enjoyable.
In order to generate a believable three dimensional soundscape to enhance both movies and music, the S 420 CEN center channel and S 420 SUR surround employ the exact same Waveguide mounted tweeter as the S 426 and a 3 ½” version of the S 426 bass/mid unit to achieve consistent, seamless sound from every direction.
To complete the Jamo S 426 HCS 3 system, you can choose a subwoofer from Jamo’s broad range to match your room size, budget and personal preferences. The S 420 SUR and horizontal S 420 CEN include wall brackets for flexible placement and effortless integration with any room.

Speakers have arrived and wow they are heavy. The picture makes them look grey, but they are actually near black with a brownish grain to them. I think they look way better than the picture makes them look. If you have doubts about how the quality seems, don't. Speakers seem really well made (did I mention heavy again), the finish is perfect, and the sound is quite good.
Audio from these speakers seems very clear to me. I previously had a set of onkyo speakers and these are by far superior to those. I have a friend who has a set of polk audio towers as well as mirage surrounds with a $250 klipsch center channel (so around $600 total). I can't say I can hear any difference between his setup and mine other than the fact that I need a sub. You hear all the pitches you want to hear crisply and this is before I have even used my yamaha's speaker configure utility. I recommend making sure you have a subwoofer with these though.

The bottom line is, if you are looking to build a nice theater system, you will not be disappointed with these as long as your equipment is configured properly. I was really surprised to see people trashing these speakers. I would recommend these to anyone as long as they have a basic understanding of how these components work.
The Sound: they don't handle bass all that well, of course, a subwoofer would be an absolute necessity. They do however sound crisp in the mids and highs. Dialogue is a bit tinny, but so it would be with just about any small center channel.
Features: really well packaged. Has banana plug connections which is nice for the price. (check Monoprice.com for plugs).
Synopsis, decent sound for a budget system. Let's be honest, you aren't going to buy these if you are an audiophile, or even a part-time enthusiast, but for the masses, it's really a good deal. If you are looking at these there is only one reason, to find a cheap system that has floorstanding speakers. At the price, you will not go wrong. They are Perfect for the casual movie watcher.
Downs: The speakers are really inefficient, so they need quite a bit of power to get them performing. Some speakers you'll never turn more than 3/4 the way up, these you will. They will get loud, just not "too loud". Best in a room of less than 200sqft. The bass is underwhelming.
Ups: banana plug connections, good looking, wall mountable center and surrounds, removable grills, floorstanding speakers have feet. crisp sound in the midrange and highs, back of the van pricing.
The sound is crisp, and I'd recommend purchasing a decent subwoofer to go along with this set of speakers. I have my Jamo speakers paired with a very nice Definitive Technology Pro Sub 100 subwoofer that I bought on Craigslist.
For $169.99 (and that includes shipping), these speakers are a steal. The same speakers in black ash run $329.95 on Amazon, and I think the Wenge finish is superior to the black ash finish. The speakers were packed very well. and arrived right on schedule.
