One of the finest products on the market. Their customer service is honestly the best I’ve ever dealt with. Absolutely fantastic employees, especially Julie. She followed up on her fantastic service to make sure all is good. Very impressive.

Yan C November 10, 2021 Quebec, Canada

Extremely impressed and satisfied with the quality of this product (build/design and sound quality). Highly recommended by someone who normally buys Paradigm. Well done Fluance!

Edward I October 13, 2021 California, United States

My experience is very similar to Jason G's review. During playback there is highly noticeable audio compression happening. To elaborate, as soon as a song gets to a quiet point, the volume slightly increases and then during a very high point, the volume suddenly adjusts itself lower. Why is this happening? I can only suspect that the controller inside these speakers is very poorly designed and is drastically compressing the dynamic range before playback.

I wasn't going to post a review, but I think this piece of information is really important for future buyers: BE PATIENT.

At first I was really disappointed because the speakers had very little bass (I even thought they were broken at one point) but I decided to keep trying them for a few more days and oh boy was that a good call. They say the break-in period is 10-12 hours but from my experience it was more like 20+ (I guess it depends on how loud you put your music). After that break-in period though the sound is simply amazing! Also other random things: the Bluetooth works perfectly (never fails to connect, isn't disturbed by a microwave running and has really high quality), the remote is really good and the speakers look really cool (I took the ones that were all black). Very happy about my purchase and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for speakers in this price range - I now notice instruments and percussions that I previously didn't in songs.

Outstanding pair of speakers! Added the Fluance powered subwoofer (10 inch) DB10, and the sound is incredible. Good highs, midrange, and lows. Well worth the cost.

Excellent all the way around.

Real B September 23, 2021

This is the second set of fluance speakers I own. The last pair were passive speakers and the quality from them was also excellent. I was looking for an active pair of speakers that had multiple inputs and these fit my needs perfectly. I haven't used the USB input, but the Bluetooth, optical, and RCA inputs work great. Glad they included BT5.0.I'm not used to having DSP built in, but from what I can tell, the DSP really enhaces the speakers. The DSP filters almost all of the bass out when you plug in a sub. Somewhere around 110hz. Also, the sub out only sends 110hz and below. Definitely a plus. They do sound great even the sub unplugged, just don't expect them to add more bass if you have a sub that's lacking in performance. Big rooms need big subwoofers.***Edit: I just watched a movie and the surround sound system hooked up to it had some of those like 4" full range speakers that mount on the ceiling.... Let me tell you.... They just don't cut it compared to these fluance bookshelf speakers. You won't believe how awful everything sounds with generic speakers, sound bars, and TV integrated speakers. If you enjoy good audio whether from a movie or from music, buy fluance. Either passive or active. Get a subwoofer too. You'll be amazed how much better everything sounds when you let the subwoofer handle the sub frequencies, the midwoofer handle the mids, and the tweeter handle the highs.***

I had the i40, which I really loved for the ease of bluetooth and quality of sound, but wanted a bit more on the low end so purchased the 60. I absolutely love these! They sound amazing with vinyl and the bluetooth connection is incredible. Sound is top notch, couldn't be happier!

Franchement, si vous avez un petit salon comme le mien et que vous êtes à la recherche de bonnes, très bonnes, voir excellentes enceintes sans fil, ces Ai61 devraient être sur votre liste.Les aiguës, médiums et basses sont tout simplement bluffant venant d’un paire d’enceintes à ce prix. Branchez un Subwoofer dessus et c’est un pur bonheur. Elles offrent un bon réalisme de l’image sonore, une construction très robuste, une connectique complète, et la cerise sur le gâteau, une télécommande de bonne qualité. La connexion bluetooth est rapide et sans défaut. Je connecte mon Fiio M11 sans aucun problème. Honnêtement, je ne regrette pas mon achat. Je ne me considère pas comme un audiophile, mais j'ai une bonne oreille. Mon dernier achat était des LS50 branchées sur un ampli Rega.

John R August 21, 2021 Indiana, United States

Bought these to replace my long gone and out of production Bose Companion Series 5, which also had a USB connection. I cannot recall the Bose ever sounding close to these Beauties. Simply the BEST I've ever heard!

Excelente speakers muy buena definicion del sonido y material de muy buena calidad

Amazon Customer August 15, 2021

I ordered these speakers and they arrived in three days. They were well packed and protected in the shipping carton. They are extremely solid and the set up took all of about five minutes. I have them in a living room/dining room combo area about 35’ X 20’ and if I turn them to full volume they absolutely fill the room with sound. Functionality is great. Bluetooth is seamless. The bass is great. Just a great product for the price. I am not an audio expert but I’ve had some nice systems in the past (large Marantz speakers pushed by a good size amp) and these Fluance speakers more than measure right up to them. Highly recommend especially for the price. My next purchase will be a Fluance turntable so I can dig out the old vinyl. Can’t wait to hear what they sound like on these speakers. And no, I was not paid by anyone for this review.

Build Quality- ExcellentAppearance- ExcellentEase of Use - ExcellentValue - Seriously, you would have to be delusional to think that you should expect more than these speakers deliver for the price. You could not have bought this quality 20 years ago for 3X the price. Perfect? Of course not. This world is full of products that cost 20X this that are not perfect. Absolutely excellent compromise is the result of this product, and from our friends and neighbors to the north is a beautiful bonus and what sealed the deal for me.

Lyle August 11, 2021

I've been trying out different bluetooth speakers while reading reviews for several months. And nothing I tried came close to the Fluance speakers clarity, depth, and build quality!I've only had them 2 days so the speakers haven't had time to break into their fullness, even so they are amazing book shelf speakers, they built them right!Will definitely purchase more of their amazing products!!!

Anthony M August 9, 2021

These speaker are much larger than I expected. The selling price made me wonder if they would be any good but it turns out they are way undervalued in my opinion. They really look nice and the wood finish is exquisite. I sat them up on a desk next to my painting easel and connected with my iPad via Bluetooth in less than a minute. I cranked up my favorite rap artist, Tom MacDonald, and it sounded nearly as good as my set of LS50s, at about a tenth of the price. I would never consider putting those in the area where I paint and tend to gent paint on everything but it would not freak me out if a little paint were to get splattered on these. There is nothing more than an on/off and volume knob on the right speaker but it has a nice remote that even allows attenuation of bass and treble, which is a nice feature that if often missing from even much more expensive models. The overall feel of these speakers screams quality from the very nice speaker wire terminals to the cloth maple leaf flag attached to the rear panel note the country of manufacture. This is certainly a nice setup for an office, bedroom, workshop, or anywhere you want to listen while you work, or play. I certainly recommend it and again you will get more than you pay for.
