Jamo has announced its new S 801 PM bookshelf speakers that join the stylishly Danish Studio 8 series.

The new Jamo S 801 PM speakers (£289.00 SRP) combine innovative contemporary design and advanced acoustic technologies, says the brand. Additionally, we are told to expect a balanced, natural sound performance with the absolute pinnacle of simplicity in set-up and operation.

The S 801 PM may be small, but it has been designed to provide exceptional output.

Using the Jamo S 801 passive speaker design as its base, it boasts a sturdy MDF construction that features rear-firing reflex ports for effective bass control.

The 1-inch soft-dome tweeters are augmented through WaveGuide technology for better dynamics and sound performance. Additionally,l the aluminised polyfibre woofers look the part and promise deep, accurate bass from a small footprint.

The S 801 PM's array of inputs and outputs make them ideal for those looking for a flexible active speaker but who are tight on space. Also, the new Jamos will likely suit those looking to build a first system or even a second room solution.

Naturally, the S 801 PM can accept wireless Bluetooth streaming, but they are equally happy through wired connections. The rear panel sports Optical, USB and stereo RCA inputs.

The S 801 PM are available in two high-quality matte vinyl finishes and feature wood-grain accents around the tweeter and at the base. For a premium feel, they also have no visible fixings and are supplied with magnetic woven grilles. They even come with a bundled remote control with batteries as well as USB cables.
