Bottom Line:   
After auditioning many loudspeakers... for the sound quality and money these were by far the most impressive and suited my listening preferences.
Also incredible aesthetics with cherry.
Downwards firing sub, works well, but speaker needs to be around 50-70cm from wall. Will show up flaws in your recordings and amplification, but is exceptional with DVD-A and good amplification and matching cables.

Initially:
Marantz sr8000
Marantz dv7000
Monster Digital Interconnect
Monster Z1 Speaker Cable

Finally:
Marantz SR8000
Panasonic DVDRA71 DVD Audio Player
QED silver Anniversary Speaker cable(tweeter)
Marantz MA6010 Mono blocks x2(driving tweeter)
Monster Z1 Speaker Cable (driving mid and bass)
Monster interlink 400 for 5.1 out on DVD-A

BIG DIFFERENCE!

Bottom Line:   
These are not the best sounding speakers I have listend to, but for the price they are amazing. I have read that some think the mid and highs are tiresome and harsh, but what really makes these speakers compare to Vandersteens, and Kef Reference 2 and below is the equipment. Amps that are low in power and current do not give these speakers justice. I am using a Parasound HCA 3500 Amp to drive these speakers. With Pioneer Elite PD 65 CD Transport and Camelot D/A convertor. I am also using Kimber Cable PBJ inner-connects and KCAG speaker cables. By wire these speakers, this will allow your amp to control this speaker better. You will hear a big difference in sound clarity and precision with an Amp like the HCA 3500. Lessor quality amps will work, but you will not be able to turn up the speakers without hearing the flaws in your equipment. By the way the speakers are just beatiful, but need constant cleaning to maintain the nice rosewood finish.

I used to own a pair of Kef Reference 3's and loved them and they do sound better than the Jamo 7.6, but remember that they also cost about 3 to 4 times the amount. For the price they are unbeatable, but you must (absolutely a must) have a strong amp with lots of power and current to truely hear what these 7.6's can do.

Last but not least to great equipment is placement in the room.

Bottom Line:   
wonderful looks, very accurate and open mid range.
good bass for movies and music.
all around good speaker, can't be compare to big player like
sonus faber, audio physics, top lines of B&W between others, but will blow away many speakers in the same price range. I am currently using a yamaha rxv 795 receiver which matches well with the speakers.
other equipment in the system:
Kenwwod turn table
sony ES cd player
sony 3000 dvd player
phillips cd recorder
rca satelite receiver
sony web tv receiver
monster cable wires and cables
Thanks to audio advisors and their great customer service and great prices.

Bottom Line:   
This is the best looking and best sounding speakers I ever had. No wonder it won the Australian award for the best speaker in year 2000. The detail at the top is stunning and I can not descibe it better than "SOUND and IMAGE" of AUS
"Performance across the midrange and into the high frequencies was simply superb. We could not have wished for superior performance. Singers both male and female were renderd to perfection, their every subtle vocal nuance clearly audible."..."at even higher frequencies the tweeter returned a clear balanced performance..yet transparent without any sign of being forced" Of the bass they said "bass performance was very good...maintaining a pure even tone quality with ...good impact" I like the bass tightness and slam with fast demanding music like in FOURPLAY,s Jazz music..This is truly and exciting speaker for music. I only added the Jamo sub 3015 (also the award winner for the best sub in year 2000 in AUS)for hometheater which fills in the final low octave below 40HZ. Highly recomended for all types of music and hometheater.

Why does 7.1 sound better than 6.1?

I know it's a silly question, and I can sort of hear the difference myself, but there really is no logical explanation, is there? After all in a 7.1 setup, the rear speakers are just a matrixed mono signal of the 6th channel, right? So what's going on with the sound between these two speakers that i ... Read More »

6.1 vs 7.1

Hi, just working on my basement home theater construction now and was wondering if 7.1 is worthwhile. Currently running 6.1 with Rotel 1067 receiver, I have the power and the processing but not so sure I want to hang another speaker on the wall. Enough is enough..Or is it?Read More »

6.1 Speakers on 7.1 Receiver?

Maybe this is a dumb newbie question, but can one run 6.1 on a 7.1 receiver? I'm thinking specifically about the Yamaha 657, if that makes a difference. I'm thinking about getting the Yammy and also thinking I may want a set of matched speakers (I currently have Cambridge Model 6 fronts and Yammy ... Read More »

Harman Kardon AVR 235 7.1 Receiver and 6.1 system

I am thinking of pairing the Harman Kardon AVR 235 7.1 with the Hsu Research VT-12 6.1 system (you buy the sub separetly). Will the receiver "do" a 6.1 speaker setup even though it is a 7.1 one? I am a newbie and have just spent a lot of time online so any input is appreciated very much.Read More »

What exactly is the point of 6.1 & 7.1 systems ?

From what I can gather, almost all DVD's are available for current movies on 5.1 surround sound. They are not recorded for 6.1. or 7.1 sound. What then is the pount of a 6.1 or 7.1 receiver other than to justify increasing prices on receivers? I think I just saw a 9.1 system listed somewhere. Can so ... Read More »
