It’s very difficult to get excited about hi-fi quality speakers. Most are ugly boxes that sit on the floor. But if these sound half as good as they look we’ll be impressed. Rather than being housed in a big cabinet, the Jamo Reference R909s are mounted inside a slender piece of wood with a metal support. In theory this should mean less bass but those clever Danish folk reckon they’ve got round this problem with a new design that employs two 15inch woofers and huge bass drivers (the speakers also come with a 5.5inch mid-range and a customised 1inch tweeter). Costing £7,500 per pair the speakers aren’t the cheapest on the market, but they do look amazing. You can see more images on the next page.
