Joe M October 2, 2019 Minnesota, United States

I'm pleasantly surprised by the clarity of and quality of these two small bookshelf speakers. The treble and mid-range on them is phenomenal and they provide enough audio power for multiple small, connected rooms.

Hooking them up to an audio technica turntable was straightforward and bluetooth pairing only takes seconds when guests want to share music. Overall, an incredibly versatile pair of speakers that are subtle and stylish.

I love this speakers

Steve G September 15, 2019 Quebec, Canada

This little bookshelf speaker is truly a wonder. This level of performance is astonishing in regards to its price. Never have I heard something so good for less than 300$. This small acoustic suspension has best of both worlds: articulate sound and real low bass extension. DSP is certainly a main magical component in the recipe here, but the drivers themselves must be quite exceptional also. Midrange and highs are just as good and quite balanced. Bravo Fluance ! I am impressed and I would recommend the Ai40.

YC September 13, 2019 Nova Scotia, Canada

There was so much hype around these speakers that they could not possibly live up to my expectations, and they didn't. They aren't bad speakers, but definitely a step down from my B&W speakers, which I moved into another room.

Dean O September 3, 2019 Wisconsin, United States

If you’re on the fence about purchasing the AI 40... it’s time to get off... lol. These are great performing speakers for the price. The Bluetooth works perfect and amplified speakers are the future, as the amp is tuned to the speakers, with ample power for a small to medium size room. My listening lounge is roughly 13x15 and the sound is perfect.

Treble: highs are clear, but not overly bright preventing listening fatigue, plus with the included remote you can adjust to your liking.

Mids: smooth and well balanced without being to forward.

Bass: Very right and punchy, but if you’re a bass head then the AI60’s (my buddy just bought a pair) is a better fit as you can add a subwoofer ( with that option was on the AI40’s, but considering the price point I get the omission.

Phantom center: (brief explanation; this is when you can hear the vocals in the center as intended depending on the recording). Perfect!!! I had to angle mine a bit towards my sitting sweet spot, which I recommend for critical listening.

Stereo Separation; Check our the song “Moving In Stereo” by The Cars and you won’t be disappointed. If you close your eyes, you can hear the vocals moving across and visualize where the instruments are... very cool and fun.

Overall these are a great value and worth the price. Nice work fluance. One final note; took them over to my buddies to jam in his sunroom... both of them were amazed as to how clean, detailed, and how tight the bass is. One of them bought the AI60’s within a week (probably to one up me... lol). Oh and one of my favorite features is these are banana clip friendly. Check out the cables by Mediabridge on Amazon (only need to buy one)... the sound clarity was noticeable from the thin 18gauge wire included. Mediabridge one I bought was 12guage.

The Ai40 have amazing sound quality I'm happy win how clear the records sound. The Bluetooth on the speakers a great added value

Michael M. August 30, 2019 New York, United States

I'm not sure if you can top the "bang for buck" factor with the AI40's. No fatigue, tight bass and really rich sound coming out of these pleasantly designed compact boxes. You don't want them to be anything but what they are: outstanding powered bookshelf speakers at an exceptional price.

Osborn, C August 29, 2019 British Columbia, Canada

Solid speakers, was looking for some speakers for my pc and was recommended fluance. New to audio setups and it was pretty easy to setup. If buying you should consider looking into getting some banana plugs though its not required.

Anthony H August 29, 2019 Ontario, Canada

Right out of the box this pair of speakers impress. They look great (bamboo) and deliver the sound you expect; crisp clear highs, and expansive midrange and surprisingly deep bass. Made in Canada matters to me and at the price you get a lot for the money.

Chris Y August 29, 2019 Nova Scotia, Canada

These speakers look and sound fantastic.

Yvon l August 27, 2019 Quebec, Canada

Excellent product sound is great the look an feel is impressive

Dean O. August 21, 2019 Wisconsin, United States

If you’re looking for an excellent affordable speaker for a small to midsize room... these fit the bill. Great soundstage, crisp highs, full balanced mids, with great base (considering their size. These are well worth the price.

Yousuf H August 20, 2019 Illinois, United States

Best speakers I have purchased so far since I have become a serious music listener. I can here different sounds and instruments that I have never heard before thanks to the clarity of these speakers. Highly Recommended.

JohnG August 19, 2019 Ohio, United States

Bought these mostly for patio TV use, but was shocked at how good these sound for music. These speakers have a surprisingly full and balanced sound for their size, very easy to listen to for long periods. You can buy speakers with more detail and imaging but I doubt anywhere close to this price. The aptX bluetooth has worked flawlessly, and again with surprisingly great sound. The remote has worked perfectly as well. The build quality is solid and really nice, and good looking too. I was so happy with these that I bought another pair after three weeks. Buy these speakers, they sound great, you won't be disappointed.

Brittany H August 16, 2019 North Carolina, United States

I have been very impressed with Fluance! This purchase is actually a gift for my dad to go with his Fluance turntable. Shipping was fast and came very well packaged. I will update on set up and sound later.
