It's sad to say, but the market for affordably priced decent quality tower speaker system is quickly shrinking.
The average "A/V" enthusiast will choose smaller package options instead of Tower systems. For the average Joe, a soundbar with a base module will do.
For those who are seeking entry level speaker systems, a Sub & Satellites system is the ticket to save the marriage or the lease in the apartment.
Jamo, and their competition in this price range of tower systems are truly in a jam.

You can’t be serious with your assessment of what people other than yourself can afford, because you don’t know what funds people have access to. Just because politicians say “we’re all in this together” doesn’t mean everyone is broke a$$. Your “opinion” is just that …an opinion! And I for one disagree. I’ve never owned any kind of sound bar, and never will.

I consider myself an “Average AV Enthusiast” and I’ve just ordered a tower package to replace my ageing tower package. Soundbar shmoundbar, you Comedian, you.
