JmGo J1 Home Theater: Relax And Watch

Posted on Nov 16 2015 - 10:50am by Matt Holtzen

The JmGo J1 is a DLP projector with a DMD chip built into a circular aluminium magnesium alloy housing, with an amazingly small footprint 219 x 60-mm and just 1.55kg in weight. A power button sits in the center of the polished metal top, glowing blue when the projector is in operation and red in standby mode. The JmGO J1 also has a S/PDIF/headphone jack should you need to quieten things down.


A metal grille wraps around the device’s middle by hiding 4 5-W speakers with Dolby Digital Plus that are capable of producing stereo sound so loud your neighbors may complain. In standby mode Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity lets you take advantage of that stereo sound and operate the JmGO J1 as a Bluetooth speaker.

Annoyingly, you cannot use Bluetooth in projector mode to pair a wireless keyboard or mouse, even though there’s a remote control provided in the box and 2 USB ports 1x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0 that you could use to hook up a Bluetooth dongle and connect wireless peripherals this way.
