Jim wants speakers. Real speakers. A 5-channel home theater with full, robust sound.
Jane (Jim’s wife) reluctantly agrees to a surround sound system in the living room under two conditions: small speakers and small price.
Jim’s dreams die a sad death.
Or do they? They’re not a JBL Synthesis arrangement, but the Concert Series from Danish speaker company Jamo is a compromise between full-size speaker an tiny satellites with a cherry finish that should keep Jim’s interior decorator happy ... Jane that is.
With Vann’s current pricing and free shipping, these little gems will please Jim’s accountant as well ... that’s also Jane.
Jamo C401 4” Bookshelf Speakers - $79/pair
Jamo C400SUR Surround Speakers - $79/pair
Jamo C400CEN Center-channel Speaker - $99/each
Keeping the wife, financier, and decorator happy in one fail swoop ... leave it to the Danes. Also available in black, but you must not know Jane.
