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 principle—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 high gloss black and red finishes, 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.
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.
