Jamo unveils new multimedia -savvy DVDplayer/receiver and new compact home cinema speaker systems

The new Jamo DMR 60 Digital Media Receiver / DVD player matched with the new Jamo A 102 speakers creates the most versatile compact home theater system.

Success breeds success or so the saying goes. Having won a hatful of awards and "Best Buys" for its ground -breaking DVR 50 DVD receiver - the world's first DivX -compatible device of its kind - Jamo is proud to announce the launch of a new Digital Media Receiver… the DMR 60.

Ultra -slim in appearance, this black and silver finished receiver offers DVD/CD replay, FM/AM listening and Dolby Digital5.1/DTS 5.1/Dolby Pro -Logic II output. With 5 x 60w of power on tap there's more than enough power to reproduce dynamic movie soundtracks.

But, as you might guess from the product's title, there's much more to it than that. This is a device designed for the multimedia age so you'll also find a USB (V1.1) socket for compatible memory card peripherals.

Plus, for even easier replay of MP3/WMA/MPEG -4/JPEG files there's a built -in 4 -in -1 flash card reader. Just download your files onto the card from your computer or camera, then pop it into the DMR 60.

A few moments of navigation through the easy to use onscreen menu system and you'll soon be watching/listening to your content - if there's no DVD in the tray it will actually automatically start playing audio files from a connected USB memory stick / MP3 player or a flash card.

Users will also note that the remote is equally as simple to use - it's been tailored by Jamo specifically for this product in order to make it as easy to use as possible.

That ease of use extends to the range of types of disc you can play in this device: DVD+/ -R/RW, CD -R/RW, Xvid and DivX (3.11 -5.xx) can all be played.

Connectivity…as you'd expect is of a high standard. Component video output (with Progressive Scan) is available, as well as, RGB (via Scart) and S -Video. A subwoofer output allows enhanced bass reproduction and a pair of digital inputs (one co -axial/one optical) adds further flexibility. The DMR 60 is currently available. Manufacturers Suggested Retail Price is $499 ea.

To complement the DMR 60, Jamo is also launching a new line of Aesthetic -series compact home theater speakers… the A 10 series.

This three -model range is comprised of the A 102 satellites, A 10CEN centre -channel speaker and SUB 200 subwoofer. Available finishes include Black, Silver and White (June 2006)

The compact A 102 satellites are weighty, magnetically shielded boxes that pack a mighty punch, due in no small part to the 90mm (3in) co -axial driver that's fitted. Finished in high -gloss black and silver these are intended for placement on the wall (a wall bracket is supplied as standard).

Naturally the centre speaker sports a similar drive unit configuration for optimal timbre matching.

And then there's the new subwoofer, the SUB 200. Equipped with a 200 Watt amplifier and an 8 inch downfiring woofer this is a bass -reflex design with both line -level and high -level inputs, automatic on/off switching and controls for level, cut -off and phase.

You can purchase the A 10 series as a 5.1 speaker system only (Model # H 102 HCS 5 - MSRP: $399/sys) or as a complete home theater system with the DMR 60 (Model # H 102 HCS 10 - MSRP: $799/sys). Systems with the Black and Silver speakers will be available for retail starting March 2006. A White speaker system (Model # H 102 HCS 5) will be available in June 2006.
