When we set about to develop the R 909, our mission was to establish new standards for craftsmanship and performance in the high end speaker category. Our quest led us to an open dipolar principlemdash; a design that has sound from the front of the speaker mirrored by the sound coming from the back. The result was an award-winning speaker that has garnered praise from audiophiles and sound professionals the world over.

Our flagship Jamo Reference R 909 audio speaker not only offers a truly lifelike listening experience, it reflects Danish design at its best. With its unique open back and black finish, this is one speaker that is as much a feast for the eyes as for the ears. The open design also allows you to see the quality components that make the Jamo R 909 so remarkable: two massive 15-inch woofers, the Hard Conical Cone midrange driver and the premium textile dome tweeter. From deep, precise bass to startlingly concert-like vocals, we've spared no expense to deliver sound in its purest form.

This remarkable floor-standing loudspeaker is not designed for everyone; it's for those who demand true high end audio performance as well as the ultimate in stylish, contemporary appearance. The Jamo R 909 has been created for the increasing number of people who prefer a two-channel solution for music and a separate surround sound system for those times when they want to watch a movie.

R909 - Medium 1
Dipolar loudspeakers have existed for many years; most of them have been electrostatic designs. However, electrostatic technology has one significant drawback: bass frequency reproduction is often compromised. They simply aren't able to produce the characteristic physical bass "thwack" you feel in your midriff. The Jamo Reference R 909 audio tower uses electrodynamic speakers instead of electrostatics, and the results are amazing. The exceptionally firm, deep bass and concert-like high end dynamics put you in the middle of the soundstage.

The revolutionary Jamo R 909 floor-standing dipolar loudspeaker is packed with high-performance features:

Two massive 15-inch woofers,
A Seas magnesium midrange driver
A customized Scan Speak Revelator tweeter
A beautiful high-gloss, 1.7-inch thick baffle, with unique multi-ply construction

No other high end loudspeaker sounds or looks quite like it.

The R 909 is the perfect match for the highest quality amplifiers on the market. However, with 89dB sensitivity and very stable load at 4 ohms, it doesn't need huge power to drive it'although it will handle more than 800 watts of peak power, if you choose! The open design and drivers reproduce wonderfully transparent vocals and a response so dynamic that it's hard to believe you're listening to a speaker. The exceptionally firm bass provides excellent transient speed, precision and fluidity throughout the frequency range with no coloration or reverberation. The Jamo Reference R 909 fully captures the heart of the musical experience.

Professional Reviews
And the Jamos are very room-friendly: we had our largest room earmarked for them, but we were encouraged to try them in a smaller space, where they worked just fine on the end of our Naim/Krell reference system. Whatever youve heard about the problems of room interaction with dipole speakers like these, the R 909s just get on with the job, provided they have a metre or so of space behind them and a gentle toe-in toward the listening position. While these speakers can indubitably do big, with a rich, powerful and well-defined bass, their main characteristics is subtlety, whether with the finer details of voices or the way in which they reveal the recorded acoustic. "They slam, they deliver the rush of a full orchestra, they let you hear each breath a singer takes and, above all, theyre special." "Verdict: The new Jamos are as accomplished as they are daring, with a sound that more than lives up to their price: lovely!"

The Jamos have glorious, full yet precise and extended bass, a bass undreamed of by any but truly enormous electrostatics. They are also free of the middle-bass hole that afflicts so many point source speakers. And as the symphony proceeded, the Jamos turned out to have a dynamic capacity beyond electrostatic realms. I was tempted to subtitle this review the electrostatic perfected. And while that might have been a bit mean-spirited it would not have been inappropriate, for the Jamos do have the same kind of low distortion, transparency, coherence, and smoothness stats have, but with a power and fullness that electrostatics can only dream of. The Jamo is not just superb at reproducing large-scale music. With its cost-no-object midrange and tweeter it does superbly well with the small-scaled music, too. The Water Lily recording of Arturo Delmoni playing solo violin was right on the mark as to tone, while the reverberant acoustics of the church where the recording was made were revealed naturally, with clarity but no exaggeration.

Key sonic features of R909 include a very spacious (almost natural-sized) soundstage, and a fantastically deep and powerful bass which at the same time sounds absolutely true to life. Beyond any doubt, such an impeccable performance is an extremely rare treat even in the world of top-quality audio. The new Danish speakers scale up a musical event without distorting the delicately balanced proportions between the sound image elements. They create a vast soundstage with natural ambience and softly outlined borders, and enhance listeners emotional perception of music to a great extent. R909s reproduction of symphonic and organ music is amazingly close to the original performance in a real concert hall or a gothic cathedral. The new Jamo speakers reveal the full potential of classical stereo reproduction. Their sound reproduction opportunities are really impressive and spacious. R909 is able to draw listeners attention to little-known music, and to cast fresh light on familiar records endowing them with surprising new quality.

LOUDSPEAKER OF THE YEAR OVER $ 2,500 The revolutionary Jamo R909 Reference Loudspeaker has just taken out two major awards, back to back. Hot on the heals of coveted European Title Best High-End Loudspeaker, the R909 is back on stage again, this time receiving Australian Loudspeaker of the Year over $ 2,500.

The R 909 might usefully be combined with a very high-end cabinet bass-speaker (subwoofer). However, the most impressive aspect of the performance of these speakers is their incredible impact. We are miles away from the sensations delivered by even the best cabinet bass-speakers of conventional design. There is no perceptible ghosting, and the speakers delivers a clean, crisp and spirited clarity of attack. Likewise, there is not the slightest coloration of the sound output. Transparency and naturalness of restitution of this quality are rarely achieved. The tonal balance is perfect, and the total absence of ghosting lends a striking relief to the sound. In conclusion With the R 909, Jamo have tackled the challenge of the open baffle, much beloved of audiophiles. By considering each of the problems raised by this technology and delivering appropriate solutions based upon new design concepts, this manufacturer has produced a remarkable speaker with and impressive performance, providing and unforgettable experience for the listener whose primary concern is to enjoy an unconstrained sound space, with impressive levels of realism. Some ungenerous souls might find fault with the lack of weight in the extreme bass register, but is it really natural to hear a double bass snorting like a compressor on a building site?

These speakers sound almost like no other speakers we have encountered. Their effortless and natural way of playing possesses such an obvious authority that almost everything else sounds boxed-in, smeared out and slow. With Jamo you are again reminded how absolutely spellbinding "trivial" stereo listening actually can be. The bass is firm and majestic in a way that now and then almost cancels the law of gravitation. Despite its natural and realistic way of playing, it is perhaps the unmovable and firm musical grip through the entire frequency range that is the most distinct Jamo characteristic, the ever sought for feeling of actually being there, to put it simply.
In short, this is a speaker with personality. What you get here is an enormous sense of scale, far exceeding conventional speakers, even big ones like B&W´s larger 800 Series models. And yet somehow Jamo has conspired to deliver this scale without any obvious sins of overhang or boom. The sense of drama, of the physical presence of musical performers right there in the listening room, appears to be intrinsic, where more conventional speakers with a similar balance often sound overblown. From one point of view, the big easy and relaxed sound of this speaker is one of its greatest strengths, especially as it is achieved without loss of detail, and without sounding blowsy or out of control. And this is exactly what the R 909 does achieve. Sure, it is perceptibly warm, but the bass is unusually tuneful and well proportioned in its own right. Orchestral entries are well timed, with the kind of balance and weight you might well be looking for when seated, say, one third to one half of the way to the back of many concert halls; the kind of balance that allows a rich, yet complex sound from the cellos and double basses. Conclusion An individual take on the high-end loudspeaker, the R 909 is relatively easy to integrate into real world systems and rooms, and its proportions look just right (not a given at this end of the market), the shallow depth being especially striking. Editors choice Overall score: 89%.
Treble (which I didn't expect problems with) is very correct, not aggressive nor too soft. The ScanSpeak unit used provides a very clean standard of reproduction. Same with midrange, which is in perfect harmony with the treble but with the necessary strength to give body to even to the most difficult instruments. The bass is of, quite honestly, spectacular quality. I really didn't think that a cabinet like this Jamo design could generate such a result. I'm stunned. Conclusion: The Jamo's R 909 are much more than a letter of intent. Their design removes several barriers to good listening and renews our faith in a loudspeaker concept that we always admired. There are no real caveats here and I can't imagine the R 909s failing to satisfy. I fervently recommend listening to them. And if you do not feel satisfied, think instead about different partnering equipment, perhaps a bigger power amplifier or a larger listening rooms. One thing's for sure it won't be the Jamo R 909s that are at fault Verdict: 6 of 5 stars! Download review

What really frightened me after listening to these speakers is the thought that were it not for Henrik Mortensen's dedication and persistence, Jamo's R909s may never have seen light of day, which would have meant that the world would have missed out on a truly great loudspeaker, one that I predict will achieve immortality in the same way as Quad's original electrostatic.
Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award '07, US
This remarkable speaker, which uses dynamic drivers in an open baffle, offers the openness and resistance to room problems of a dipole planar combined with a power, solidity, and bass extension that few planers can even dream of. Coherent, dynamic, extended in the bass (to 27Hz), very low in distortion, and tonally well balanced, and the R 909 does a positively spectacular job of reproducing the scope and power of large-scale music.
