Love the fluance sound. Clean,crisp, plenty of power.

robert s August 3, 2019 Illinois, United States

Love these. Great sound and great price. I wish there was a sub out as there is in the Ai60. They sound great without a sub but it would be a welcome option for some. I also own bipolar speakers and everyone compliments the sound.

Roman G August 1, 2019 California, United States

Built a small entry system for my daughter with these, a classic Technics Turntable and Pro-Ject pre-amp. Sounds great and takes up small amount of space.

Chris July 28, 2019 British Columbia, Canada

I love these, but there are couple of things that are bugging me. First thing is the high whining noise coming out of the speakers, and I was able to fix that by adding a ground noise isolator to get rid of the noise.

Now my speaker has this distorted buzzing (like a static buzz) coming out of it when playing music from time to time. I have heard that this is being fix by the new batch of power supply. I have hope that I did not get one of the old stocks.

I am strongly considering to exchange this for the ai60, I want to give the brand a try again since I heard great things about it. I do love the sound and the quality the speakers has, only reason it doesn't get a five stars is because the issues I been having.

Chris July 22, 2019 British Columbia, Canada

Love them, they look nice and very nice built. Sound very decent and powerful for my desktop uses. The only down side is that mine does have a hissing noise when they are idle, it is not loud, but i can hear them especially when no sounds are playing.

Julien July 17, 2019 Quebec, Canada

Very happy with these speakers ! I use them with an RT-80 turntable. They sound great and they are well built. I didn't know that brand a few weeks ago. I will definitely trust them for my future audio purchases.

I started as a vinyl liver 5 years ago. It was time to upgrade to a better experience and Fluance provided it.

Dani M June 27, 2019 Minnesota, United States

I'm kind of an audio snob, I've spent hundreds of dollars on trying to find the perfect high quality IEMs, but you can't keep them in your ears all the time! I've been wanting a pair of powered bookshelf speakers for a couple years now and after really exhaustive research I decided on the Ai40s.

I honestly can't believe how good they are. They work seamlessly with every Bluetooth device I've thrown at them (Samsung Note 8, Tablet S3, and Tablet A2, and an MSI laptop with built in Bluetooth). They sound amazing, there's no lag when watching video. I don't even have them that far apart and the stereo separation is A+. I was worried the bass would be anemic for relatively small woofers but nope! More bass than I thought was possible out of this size.

I really cannot recommend these enough. They're made like tanks, extremely stable in that they're not top heavy or prone to tipping. You really can't go wrong,

Just buy it!

PhilipB June 25, 2019 Maryland, United States

Using with 26 inch tv mainly, and adds some bass to programs that don’t have any with TVs internal speakers, a lot of sound in a small package. Two main complants: speaker wire isn’t long enough, 8ft is what I measured and the speakers are next to the tv, I bought a 50ft 16awg roll of speaker wire, I cut it to 20ft; also the speakers don’t have grills on the front and I have had 2 times I have had the cables (headphone) from my tv touching the center dome or the cone of the woofer. I also use the Bluetooth function with an IPad and pandora good sound. Otherwise a good set of speaker.

Peter W June 25, 2019 Ontario, Canada

These are really enjoyable. I was using higher end computer speakers at my computer, realized that I actually listen to quite a bit of music there and prefer not to use headphones. The i40's are a substantial upgrade, audiophile-grade sound and I have the flexibility to use them elsewhere as bluetooth speakers.

Tim D June 25, 2019 Ohio, United States

I use these speakers for movies and for PC gaming and they are perfect for both. For movie watching I have them hooked up to my Apple TV via Bluetooth. Dialogue during movies is crystal clear and environmental sounds are engrossing. I have the speakers connected via wire to my PC for games. Using the remote, it takes just one push of a button to switch between the two. Games sound excellent with very rich and realistic sounds. The highs and mids on these speakers is spot on. The lows aren’t as punchy as I like but they are more than adequate.

Bryan S. June 23, 2019 California, United States

Love it, great sound, and easy set up. Keep up the good work, Fluance!

Bradley G June 22, 2019 Illinois, United States

Amazing bookshelf speakers. Easy pair with Bluetooth. Great value for the money.

Anton E June 20, 2019 Virginia, United States

Great speakers for family room. TV speaker replacement and Bluetooth music use.
