In the established Jamo tradition, these speakers out-perform virtually every competitor in this price range. Thanks to a carefully balanced engineering effort, these speakers offer both good looks and sound quality rarely heard from speakers in this class. The Jamo S 426 has dual woofers in a reflex-optimized enclosure and a low-resonance tweeter with a Jamo Waveguide. The result is a punchy, yet refined and detailed sound that will make movies and music enjoyable. Adding the Jamo S 420 Center and the Jamo S 420 Surround will create a first-rate surround system and, thanks to the terrific versatility in terms of placement (both comes with wall bracket), these speakers will not clutter the living room. With our exclusive stylish, contemporary industrial design, these speakers easily blend into modern living rooms.
From the Manufacturer
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.

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.
Comparing them both, the BIC's (though more expensive) have a much better upper range (from 500Hz up) than the Jamo's. Their tweeters are very good, while the Jamo's use regular dome tweeters, and sound just like that.
However the BIC's are too bright. Also the bics suck in the low end; where the Jamo's are much better.
Both Jamo and BIC have about the same power range input (~10-150W), the BIC's are 8Ohms, the Jamo's 6Ohms.
The Jamo's are perhaps a bit less loud, but overall are not a bad purchase.
They are easily paired with a sub woofer; and so far, I've only been able to test their floor standing speakers, and their center speaker, not the satellite speakers yet.
The center speaker could be a bit louder for movies.
So, the sound is overall good, and acceptable. Paired with a sub for the home theater, it's well worth it's money.
These Jamo's shine in their looks. Just like about anyone says on here, these speakers look awesome. The grain looks better than on the pictures, a rich dark wooden grain; that looks very expensive.
These are definitely worth their money, and I doubt you'll find similar speakers anytime soon for the price!
Looks: 9,5/10 (Great lookers!!)
Sound quality speakers: 7/10
Volume levels speakers: 7/10
Power handling: 10-100W just fine
Just make sure your amp can handle 6Ohms speakers!
Buy & enjoy!!!
All in all this is an incredible system if you have a budget or are just a college student looking for great sound for cheap!
I hope this review was helpful to you.
I would have given these speakers a 5 star rating, but have downgraded 1 star based on the packaging. The speakers arrived on my doorstep in a box so damaged that it appeared to have been carried on the back of an Afghani refugee, he obviously used the box as a shield against numerous IED blasts since the box had numerous holes in it and the foam packing had been rendered into popcorn. Miraculously the speakers were not damaged in any way. However Jamo should double box these speakers to insure that they always arrive in undamaged condition. Packing heavy speakers in light cardboard is not the way to insure intact delivery I just happened to luck out with no damage to the speakers..
