Bottom Line:   
Before considering the Jamo Omega A310 speaker pack (or any other speakers), I would like to point out, that it really depends on four factors:

(1) the size of the room.

(2) The positioning of the speakers, relative to the listener.

(3) the quality of the speaker cable.

(4) the quality of the amplifier being used to drive the speakers.

In my case the room was approximately 20 square metres. With about 3 metres from the front and centre speaker. And about 2 metres from the rear speakers.

I tested this speaker package with an Onkyo TX-SR600(E). This is a high current amplifier, with discrete channel amplification. D.I.N continious power output at 115W at 6-ohm.

I found running these speakers at their
suggested 6-Ohm Rating to be necessary for
attaining clear tweeter and woofer sound.

I found setting amplifier speaker settings to small and Bass Cut-off extremely benefical.

I found running the satellites speakers with two SW1008 sub-woofers, marginally better than one for movie effects in DD 5.1 and DTS modes. Again, position was important.

I felt the gap between the satellites and sub-woofer to be most noticable while listening to music in either 2.1 channel stereo, DTS NEO 6 and Dolby Pro Logic II mode.

I recommend that you try before you buy.

Bring a mixture of your favourite music to
the retailer and listen for yourself.

Get them to connect several amplifiers to
the speakers. Larger retailers should be
able to help.

Invest in a high current, discrete channel
amplifier, if you can afford one.

Bottom Line:   
Reasonably good for stereo setup, when watching a movie they seem to be 'mumbling' at times.

The gap between the sub and the sats. is to big in my opinion.

Once the subwoofer is adjusted it sounds good, but it needs very precise adjustments.I think the sub works well for watching movies, but laks refinement needed for music.

Bottom Line:   
The vocals are clear, high range levels are delivered very well, as well as the bass. However, mid bass did not come out that good, which is not too obvious if you use it for watching movies.

Another thing that Jamo is lacking of: sound staging, if compared to the Bose Acoustimass. especially for the vocals if you use it for music. But I still think that this problem could have occured from disorganized stuff in my room. =)

Don't forget, you can somewhat handle this using a DSP receiver (I use Yamaha RXV-520) which could shift the sound to the center speaker. The combined DSP receiver could also further fill my room with all the 5 speakers on.

Even if I could have bought the 5.1 speaker system for $800, I still think that the Jamo Apollo is a good bargain.

Go ahead and experience one.
