Jamo Speakers Add Omnipolar Technology

LAS VEGAS – Jamo, the Klipsch-owned brand known for Danish design and direct-radiating speakers, is adopting a variation of Mirage’s omnipolar dispersion technology to produce small spherical-shaped speakers.

Mirage, formerly a stand-alone speaker brand within the Klipsch Group but now a series in the Jamo franchise, uses Omniguide omnipolar technology to disperse midrange and high frequencies in a 360-degree dispersion pattern. Jamo’s variation, called Omnisphere, is a more compact version, enabling Jamo to offer 360-degree dispersion in two small spherical speakers in the M360 series.

The series also includes a compact 40-inch-tall floorstanding speaker that uses the Omnisphere technology and, from the sides, features a design reminiscent of a nautilus.

A center-channel speaker without Omnisphere technology is also included in the series along with two powered subs.

The series enables Jamo to fill a niche for speakers focused on specific lifestyle applications, said Klipsch Group product development VP Mark Casavant.

The spherical speakers are the S25 at $149 each and S35 at $199 each. The C35 center channel is $299 each, and F45 floorstanding speaker is $1199/pair. The subs are $399 and $499.

The spherical speakers offer hidden binding posts and an aluminum base assembly that rotates for wall mount applications.
