OK.............first things first.
I emailed Andy at Fluance at least three times asking questions about the Fi70.
He responded within 12 hours each time and explained everything I was concerned about. He was a lot of help.
I am not using this as a blue tooth speaker. I have the Fi70 plugged into the pre-out on my home receiver.
That way I can use that for access to CD's, tapes, phono etc. We listen to classical music and slow jazz.
OK.............second things second.
Just got it up and running 30 minutes ago. It sounds great.
Crisp clear highs and excellent bass with a nice midrange
and they say it will sound better after the speakers break in.
It looks good. Unusual, but my wife and I really like it.
Third things, well, third.
I am 75 years old.
If anyone out there my age wants to buy one, hire a forklift and two professional wrestlers.
This thing is heavy. It's a bit larger than I pictured and built solidly.
Using alternative methods of lifting my wife and I got it up on it's pedestal
with not much extra effort. We just had to be careful and take our time.
We live on the west coast and it took one week to get here. I am happy with that.
It was packed very well. Double boxed and lots of foam to protect it.
It arrived in perfect condition.
So.........we are very happy with this system.
Andy was extremely patient and helpful with my inquiries.
And WOW............it sounds great.
Simplicity. One if the biggest initial take away from the Fluance Fi70 is that if you chose to one can literally pull it out of the box place it onto the floor (it has small rubber feet on the bottom) plug the power cable into the back Bluetooth your phone & play music within 2 minutes of it ticking the floor. It is probably the most idiot proof piece of amazing sounding HiFi I've ever dealt with. The must difficult thing is program FM stations into it which is still easy if you can read a sentence....
First songs? Bassnectar sounds fantastic! - Verified Store
POUNDS SO GOOD !!! - Verified Store

Fi70b bad boy. Thanks guys - Verified Store
I paired this speaker with an iPad mini through bluetooth and an Akai Professional BT500 turntable through the AUX input (https://www.amazon.com/Akai-Professional-BT500-Belt-Drive-Walnut/dp/B01BYIP4L6/ref=sr_1_1?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1517853979&sr=1-1&keywords=akai+professional+bt500). The iPad mini fits perfectly in the opening on a stand and the turntable rests on top of the speaker. Altogether this makes for a fantastic setup! Only complaint I have is the USB charging port requires that the speaker/amplifier be on as well. I would prefer the USB be powered at all times without keeping the speaker powered. - Verified Store
I have reviewed a great many bluetooth speakers in the ultra-portable (Bose Soundlink Mini Bang and Olufsen A1) semi-portable (Klipsch KMC-3 Aiwa Exos 9 Cambridge Audio Minx Air 200) and tabletop (Klipsch The Three Polk Woodbourne) ranges. What you expect them to be able to do is proportional to their size portability and ostensible use cases. I have tried a good many of each size/form factor and so although I wouldn't claim to have an audiophile's ear I do appreciate good sound - all the time everywhere headphones home work car. And trying enough different ones lets me at least claim to give a reasonable degree of input with A/B testing.
I ordered this at the same time as the Fi50. I received the Fi50 first tested it and regurgitated it along with panning it in an unapologetically negative review that somehow never saw the light of day after I submitted it. It arrived today and I unboxed it with some trepidation worried about wrestling it back into the packaging if it underperformed as much as the Fi50 did.
First impression: it's big. I don't mean a tabletop bluetooth speaker I mean it's BIG. I knew it was 8' 3-ways but it's still bigger than I expected it by a few inches in every dimension. I mean this is the honkin' big mamma jamma bluetooth speaker. My first thought was: when my wife sees this she's going to say 'What the bleep is that?!' My first thought turned out to be an exact precisely correct prediction. She said are you building a space ship in here? Then she said: oh that's a speaker. Then she told the 5-year-old that the way it works is you light the outside on fire then small trained circus animals like cats and rabbits leap through the ring in the center. So there's the aesthetic: it's well made very neat so big that your wife - and probably visitors as well - will say 'What the bleep is that?!'. Oh and it's heavy. It's over 80 pounds... plus the pedestal accessories and packaging. I also didn't expect to nearly break my back picking it off the porch but I nearly did so there's that too.
There is no battery. The touch controls on top work very precisely crisply as they did on the Fi50 - very well implemented controls. The remote control works very well. Everything is well executed. The grille snaps into place with magnets precisely and accurately. It has an AM/FM antenna optical and analog line in a clock and apparently an alarm. I'm not sure I'd use this as an alarm clock on my nightstand but maybe other people have much much larger nightstands than I do. Or giant trolls... golems... stone giants could use it as an alarm clock?
So far so good. It's a very big very heavy very well-executed object.
The next worry: sound performance. If I have to spend the next month icing my back in order to get it positioned under the TV is it worth it?
The title of my review says it all: more is just more. It's a LOT of kit. A lot of drivers big ones with a lot of power. The bass is undefeatable - it claims usable frequency response down to 30Hz and it sounds exactly right. Initially I thought the bass was while deep and tight understated compared to especially midrange. Then... the remote control has bass and treble buttons! I cranked up the bass - and there you go - it has bass. The soundstage is great the treble is sparkling and while it seems the response curve isn't completely even it does sound really nice - big wide musical.
Now this isn't the most boosted inky bass you'll hear. But it's deep and pronounced. What IS spectacular about it is the bass scales up right to 100% volume. The Fi50 distorted horribly at high volumes. This one goes to 100% volume on the speaker and the phone and it is indeed using all 280 watts RMS loud enough to be rude to the neighbors with all of our doors and windows closed and all of their doors and windows closed... two doors down. And the bass is absolutely smooth and controlled even while it's rattling your windows and shaking nails out of the rafters in the roof. That's what a well-tuned ported 8' enclosure can do for you.
Where's the 5th star? This speaker sat on it. You can get comparable power with comparably controlled but window-rattling bass out of a Klipsch The Three Aiwa Exos-9 Polk Woodbourne Marhsall Woburn or Peachtree Audio Deepblue. Each sporting a single long-excursion bass driver in the 5.5' to 6.5' range. This is a very good speaker seems to be done well but you don't need something this big to make sound this big. So it's good - but you have other options. Much smaller ones that make crazy big controlled boom with a quarter of the size.
Happy listening! - Verified Store
Speaker just died 7 months after receiving it. Only got used a handful of times. Fluance customer service really sucked but Amazon let me return it for a reduced refund. - Verified Store
this is the best Bluetooth speaker sounding i ever heard the design is an eye catcher i will definitely recommend the fi70 to anyone who want to experience a true audio sound
Sound quality is mediocre at best. Everytime you power it down it loses its settings (bass and treble). My bluetooth is faulty and cuts out. Now to return it I have to pay the shipping to get a repaired speaker back. There are much better speakers out there for the money. I would not purchase another Fluance product.
I wasn't sure if it was going to sound as good as the reviews said. But I was completely amazed!!It shakes the whole house. It's very loud and clear at max volume. - Verified Store
Bought this speaker based on reviews in January and I am very happy with it. Sound is sensational, pairing is easy, touch controls are sensitive enough, size is according to quality sounds and design very modern. Only thing is a wish you could pair your phone or Bluetooth device to two or more simultaneously. - Verified Store
I had to downsize from a full 5.1 system when I moved into an apartment. Honestly I don't even miss the 5.1. Some people say the size is awkward, but it's probably the best arrangement for the amount of floor space it actually takes up. The eq is pretty simplistic, but the response is fantastic. The only negative is the curve on the cabinet and the curve on the face don't line up perfectly.I've bought probably 5 sound bars and other fiber optic tv devices in the past - wish I could just go back and buy this and be done with it. The Fluance Fi70 is the best bang for the buck in home audio I've ever purchased. - Verified Store
Great sound quality. An awesome bluetooth speaker; probably the best one out there. Probably would not work as well for surround sound or home theater applications but it is perfect for music. Very sturdy construction and it is VERY heavy. This thing is like a piece of furniture. - Verified Store
Beats my $500 Marshall speaker. Also sounds better than my beats speaker too. - Verified Store
Stop reading the reviews and buy it now! This is the absolute best speaker that I've heard and I consider myself an audiophile. I challenge anyone to produce a better sounding bluetooth speaker. Incredible highs and great bass which is perfect for both my preferred genres of hip hop and R&B. I absolutely love this thing and wish I could add another to give me full stereo from two speakers. Great product Fluance... 5 stars from me. - Verified StoreSee all reviews
