"The Ai60 speakers can get exceptionally loud, and on tracks with intense sub-bass content... the drivers deliver powerful bass response."

Simply amazing! Incredible range and bass even in my studio space with 11' ceilings! Crisp and detailed sound at any distance.

The Ai60's are my latest and 3rd Fluance product that I have purchased and as usual they shine just like the others! I am extremely satisfied with these powered speakers and I have them set up in my office.. If you are in the market for powered speakers then look no further and get a pair of the Ai60's

Good sounding speakers overall with good build quality, easy setup and use. Was very easy to setup the bluetooth and function is great.

These were purchased to replace a set of far more expensive non working Klipsch powered bookshelf speakers and I couldn't be happier. I had my sights on the Ai40's but they were unavailable in the finish (Bamboo/White) I wanted and I am glad I upgraded. Unfortunately for Fluance, I don't need to purchase a sub woofer now as the base response in the Ai60's is excellent. I have them hooked up a custom built PC via the included RCA cable. A tiny complaint was that the hoped for Optical cable wasn't included. Other than that, big thumbs up!

The speakers are definitely not conventional when it comes to setting them up in regards to older speakers to a receiver, but once I figured out the best layout for my personal needs, it was a breeze. The bass is fantastic and the sound quality that these small speakers produce is incredible, especially putting them on opposite sides of my room. Overall, the speakers work incredibly well and as introductory speakers and my first purchase from fluance, I have to say that they are one of the best sets of speakers I’ve ever used.

I am new to the powered speaker world and am super impressed and a convert!

Tanner,D August 20, 2020 Kansas, United States

These are a great replacement for a soundbar or a standard 2.X passive setup. I wanted to simply my media setup but still get good sound for music, games, movies, etc. I current setup is:

Optical for TV
RCA for turntable
USB for raspberry pi with Spotify client running

Pros:
-Sound: Great amount of bass. I live in an apartment so it's the perfect amount that you can hear but doesn't shake the walls, although you could easily add a sub if you'd like. Where you will really see the differences between these and a soundbar is in the mid-bass / mid frequencies. I actually had a soundbar side by side with the ai60s and the lack of sound in the bar/sub crossover region was obvious.
-Nice variety of inputs
-Hits a solid price point between lower end speakers (Edifier) and upper end (Kanto).

Cons:
-Dialogue can be harder to hear at lower volumes (result of DSP I believe). Wish there was more tuning the end user could do on the DSP/equalizer part.
-No auto on/off. This might not be a problem for some people but this is one of those nice features that other speakers and soundbars often have. It'd be nice not having to pick up the remote as much.

Neutrals (extra thoughts):
-Wish there was a solid white colorway

I was not able to update my previous review regarding a tweeter issue, so wanted to post another review. Fluance reached out via email after my speakers had a tweeter issue out of the box. We did some initial troubleshooting, and it was determined they needed to be shipped back. Long story short, I had an easy return process and a new pair of speakers arrived less than a week after the return. Great customer service! I have the new pair set up and they sound fantastic. If you are a spotify user, there are some great playlists for "speaker test tracks" and I tried a few different tracks to get them dialed in. I have the bass set at the halfway mark (+5) and the treble setting a bit higher (+6) and found this to be my favorite for my environment. The bass is very punchy. Guitar and vocals are excellent. Very heavy and well-made, they look great in my listening room! I think they'll get even better with more playing time. The remote is great. Wish there was a dial or indicator for bass and treble as you have to count light blinks to know your settings. I was so excited to use these speakers, I am glad my initial issue was resolved and I can enjoy these. Great value for the $.

Love these powered speakers! I have them in cabinets since they are enclosed so they can be hidden. Using these speakers for my tv and a lot of music listening with Bluetooth and turntable.

I use these hooked up to my TV for movies and spotify, and they work beautifully. For my two bedroom apartment, they really fill the space.Easy setup, beautiful product.

These speakers are good but I definitely get odd variances in volume - good for casual listening, but I would get a seperate amp and speaker for hifi

I was so excited for these as they had (almost) everything I wanted and looked great to boot. I read a lot of reviews and watched some videos and decided they would work for my setup (small living room, wishing to connect a turntable but also have bluetooth connectivity from my phone). For reference, my other listening setups are a pair of self-powered Equator D5 studio monitors (for mixing music, but I've also used them just for listening) and a 30-year-old pair of passive Bose 301s (no Bose haters, please -- if you're moving around a room and not sitting front and center, they can be quite nice).The good:- I thought the treble was fairly well-balanced- they look GREAT- easy connectivity- not too bigThe bad:- With bluetooth connected, the mid-bass was so prominent it gave me a headache after a few minutes, even at modest volumes. It sounds like the DSP was designed by a bass player who thought they needed to be turned up in every song. Even with the bass control turned completely down, it was overdone. Was this to please people who don't have a subwoofer? It didn't work. The bass is flubby and annoying, not tight like I'd expect from a closed speaker without ports. I tried isolating the speakers on stands and pads, moving them away from walls, moving them low and high...it's bass: it gets around. No luck. STRANGELY, this is less of a problem with the RCA input that I was driving from my turntable, though still there. Anyway, these have to go back. :(- Smaller issue: you can't switch which speaker is left vs. right, which was unfortunate for my listening setup and locations of my outlets (the right speaker plugs into the outlet) but not a deal-breaker.Overall: I'm assuming these were made for people to enjoy with movies? I don't understand why the bass is so prominent. Upon reading some more in-depth reviews of the frequency response, I see that the bass is, indeed, overstated at lower volumes. Sorry, Fluance, I can't listen at 10 all the time. I really, really wanted these to work, but the bass headaches will win out.

Excellent bass - very smooth, very tight. Compliments my rt81 turntable.

RT80 Turntable and Ai60 powered bookshelf speakers work great together. Sound quality too a smooth and the price point is very affordable. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

Ron C July 12, 2020

These speakers are a great value for the money. The sound quality is crisp & clear. Spaced evenly in the room, the balance from L to R is well balanced.
