Some guys want their Bluetooth speaker setup to blend in with the rest of the space. Others like it better when their audio gear stands out. The Fluance Fi70 definitely fits that second category of listeners.
The outfit’s largest speakers to date at 29.5 x 11 x 36 inches, it comes in a blocky wooden cabinet with rounded corners and a large rectangular hole at the center. Basically, it’s a giant square donut. You can set it down on a table if you want (a shelf is probably out of the question), although it comes with an accompanying pedestal for taking up floor space and getting even more prominent placement in a room.
The Fluance Fi70 is a three-way speaker with two 5-inch glass fiber drivers, two 8-inch high-excursion subwoofers, and two 1-inch soft dome neodymium tweeters. Paired with the integrated 280-watt amp, it boasts accurate sound recreation, high-impact bass, and crystal clear details, whether you’re spending the time listening to classic jazz, 90s rock, or modern EDM. It boasts a frequency response of 30 Hz to 20 kHz with a crossover frequency of 150 Hz to 2.5 kHz, making for some serious sonic room-filling potential that, according to the company, capably replaces your existing home stereo system with “concert-rivaling performance.” Features include touch controls on top for settings adjustment, Bluetooth with aptX, a 3.5mm jack, an optical input for using with your TV, and a USB port for keeping your phone charged while it streams tunes to the speaker.
Available in bamboo, black ash, and walnut finishes, the Fluance Fi70 is priced at $499.99.
