Bottom Line:   
My opinion for jamo classic 8,there are great speakers I got my first one when I was 16 years old kid didn't know much about it they seems good in stereo mode now I have 4 of them plus 4 jamo classic 4 and jamo centre 200 plus jamo 650 for sub driven by pioneer susano signal come from pioneer lx91 DVD and believe my the sound is brill,so just to lett you know I have use jamo classic for over 15 years and they never let me down very good dynamic sound the only difficult part is to set it up use it only bi wire with good cables at list 12£ per meter with good air loc banana plugs.
The only speakers I will consider is Jamo classic 10 very hard to buy this days so if anybody wants to sell pls let me know / nikaileen@yahoo.co.uk

Bottom Line:   
In comparison with Dali 505 I found that this speaker are to loud.
I have used the Jamo classic 8 for 12 years now and thought this are very good speakers
This speaker are very difficult to setup. When you change to other inputs you can setup everything again.
the mids and the bass sounds to hard on my Harman Kardon AV30. My opinion is that this speakers performs better on older 2 channel amplifiers from Yamaha or NAD

Bottom Line:   
These are very capable speakers... If you know how to treat them!
Problem is they do not cost much, so people who are not real audiophiles are buying them and expect to play well just by pressing Play!
Well, if you buy ten times more expensive speakers, you still need to treat acoustically your room, position speakers carefully, choose your CD, AMP and cables...
These speakers do have very large bass! And rear bass port, so it takes some time to position them correctly!
With B&W speakers you do get the plugs for bass ports, so they, no meter how expensive, have the same issue - big bass! So, it is certainly not a problem, just - this speakers are not for someone who does not know how to use quality Hi-Fi equipment.
So, read manual that you've got with them! That should be enough to learn how to position them. Maybe you could even make the foam plugs for bass ports, kind a B&W delivers with their speakers. It is not that this plug will solve a problem if you room is too small for this speaker, or it is of too strange shape, but it could help to tune the lowest frequencies a little bit down, to dampen and firm up the lowest of bass.

Sound... Well, I owned many brands, and for 12 years now - I am still listening to these ones! Many of my friends also have large speakers, and I still heaven't heard a better speakers below 3000$ than these!
Jamos have fine tweeters, silk-soft dome ones, they are very soft - natural. Most today speakers have metal tweeters and struggle to sound not too bright. Only from 3000$ up you can buy speakers with metal tweeter that sound natural... Maybe Monitor Audio Gold tweeters can do just fine below that price.
And those bass drivers are a real treat - technically, acoustically and esthetically! Mid range may be not too suitable for high pitch sounds, maybe it looses some clarity on transients, but is still the best you'll get up to 3000$!
