The Jamo AVR 693 is one tool for those who are indeed interested in the best sound and picture quality one of the world's leading names is capable of offering. It is a top-notch AV amplifier that embeds some of the most advanced technologies from Jamo and at the same time offers a fair balance between price and the quality of the output.
There is quite a lot more than raw power to the Jamo AVR 693: even if we would be talking about power alone, this very nifty piece of technology is able to deliver a truly blasting 120W RMS per channel.
And even further, if we were to speak about channels, the Jamo AVR 693 sports 6-channel sound, fit for the latest video and audio formats and allowing the user to experience immersive sound and acoustic accuracy rarely met in similarly-priced gear. Indeed, the Jamo AVR 693 is one of the coolest 5.1 amplifiers you can set your hands on for this particular price point.
The Jamo AVR 693 can handle Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS, DTS-ES and DTS Neo:6; if this is not enough (hilariously) rest assured - your DVD-Audio and SACD media will go with it as well. Even active loudspeakers do not pose real problems as the Jamo AVR 693 sports multi-channel outputs.
All the immediately necessary commands are placed on the front panel for easy and instant access, including transport controls and the very handy jog wheel. The LED display is highly visible in both darkness and strong light conditions and you will have no trouble finding the needed information.
The display of the Jamo AVR 693 shows the selected format, the number of channels available (e.g. 2-channel stereo) and in which format and to which speakers the signal is sent (e.g.Dolby Pro Logic IIx in all six speakers + subwoofer).
The Jamo AVR 693 sells for prices running around $750.
