CNET Review of the AB40 Soundbase

CNET Review of the Fluance AB40 Soundbase

"The highest compliment we can pay to any sound bar or base is that once we're involved watching a movie or listening to music we can forget we're listening to a sound bar or base. The Fluance AB40 is in that group."

I purchased my original unit in July 2018. I selected the AB40 due to room limitations. It sounded superb and exceeded my expectations. About a month or so ago it started shutting down after being on for only 20 minutes or so. It progressively got worse until it would shutoff after only 3 minutes of being on. Finally, I sent it back to Fluance for repairs as its warranty is a full 2 years which is great. The returned unit didn't work at all and that was returned for a brand new unit which works perfectly. I would like to thank Whitney in customer service for all her work expediting the whole process. It was much appreciated. I have recommended Fluance to all my friends and associates.

Je recherchais une barre de son simple et pas compliquer avec un son acceptable, des que j'ai recue le ab40, je l'installe la met en marche et voila que fut le son alors wow quel surprise , un son clair et nette pas besoin de sub, pour le prix wow une belle surprise.J'aurais aimé voire affiché le volume du son sur la base mais se nais pas le cas. Bravo Fluance belle réussite. moins pas de manuel en Français.

Great sound while it worked. Started randomly shutting down, now it quits every 45 seconds or less. Checked all wiring and remote settings, but it's toast.

Bill T March 23, 2019 Ohio, United States

Bought this for our RV because its difficult to hear the TV with the AC on and sound bars are even more expensive. We set it up in our Master bedroom to check it out until the weather breaks. Excellent sound including the base. It is going to be perfect in our RV.

Paul March 19, 2019 Washington, United States

Ive tried a few sondbars in the past, but the AB40 was the best overall soundbar that ive tried in that price range.

Michael S February 23, 2019 North Carolina, United States

The AB40 sound bar is awesome the sound is impeccable. Who needs surround sound? This lil gem has base and sound that fill my 20 x 16 room easily. Give this piece some serious consideration before spending $1000's

Joseph January 7, 2019 Pennsylvania, United States

Excellent sound base. Fully satisfied. I do not miss the sub woofer. My grand son and I watched the Polar Express and we could feel the rumbling of the train. It fills the room with warm sound and I'm completely satisfied.
Fluance offers excellent products at an excellent price.

Benjamin J. January 1, 2019 Pennsylvania, United States

Tremendous soundbar at a great price.

Colin G. December 27, 2018 Illinois, United States

I gifted this to my fiance for Christmas. I originally planned to purchase an entire home theater speaker system but due to the small size of the room, I decided to go with this soundbase only. Needless to say, she and I have both been incredibly impressed and happy with the product.

Highly recommend this to anybody who wants to improve their TV or gaming experience with fuller, deeper audio. The improved sound quality is immediately noticeable vs. the TV speaker alone.

We have also been loving the Bluetooth feature. While we mainly use this for TV and gaming, we have also used it to play music and it puts out an incredibly pleasing sound for music, too.

The build on this product is sturdy--it is made to sit beneath a large flat-screen TV after all--and it the black finish is visually pleasing as well. It looks great in our living room.

I'd highly recommend this product to anybody interested in a sound bar/sound base solution, especially at this price. It is a complete steal.

this is amazing sounds awesome i recommend this product

Bernie November 16, 2018 Alberta, Canada

Husband was happy with this got rid of all his other equipment since we downsized.

Jason C October 10, 2018 Georgia, United States

I was looking for a soundbar replacement and was planning on purchasing the Sonos system. I decided to see if fluance had soundbars since I had purchased from them previously and was very pleased. After brief online reviews I decided to purchase the AB40 and I can once again say I am not disappointed. It is clean, crisp and when bass boost or 3D sound is activated, I am blown by the overall dynamics of the system. For the price I think it would be practically impossible to find as comparable system.

Needs to have more treble options find it has two much bass

JTA October 12, 2017

Sounds great, perfect for my bedroom PC/TV. - Verified Store

Alan September 17, 2017

I purchased the AB40 to replace a Bose Solo. The AB40 is in a completely different league sonically. It is a true high fidelity system capable of delivering clean, undistorted sound across the audio spectrum without any obvious colouration. Bass response is solid without boominess or resonance. The system sounds great with music, TV, and movie sources alike, even at high volumes. Fluance have really raised the bar for sound bases with the AB40.
