The Omega Junior 8XRS. A more compact and affordable version of the Super 8XRS.
I felt rather than make a monitor version of the 8, I would do a smaller tower, saving the need for and cost of stands. Another plus is larger cabinet volume than a monitor, yet a very space friendly, elegant, compact tower. Like their big brother, they will compliment your solid state integrated, and will grace your $20,000 SET monoblocs. 2 watts of flea power SET will light them up like few speakers on the market. The new 8″ driver is an improvement over the very popular 8″ driver of the past. The sound is like the RS5 on steroids. Very fast and dynamic, and able to handle complex music. Another true classic from Omega.
THE XRS CONCEPT
XRS stands for Xtended Room Speaker. What is extended?
The all important midrange, the width and depth of the soundstage, the bottom end, and the “hugeness” of the presentation from a compact speaker. The wide baffles on these models enhance the midrange, giving a wide open unboxed sound and tremendous imaging.
