Excellent floor standing speakers. Warm sound with nice clarity and oomph. Beautiful to look at as well. Can't find better floor standing speakers in this price range.

In overall, i am very satisfied with my purchase. I havent done scientific comparison but i compared my feeling with Kef q550 tower vs reference 3way. First i am very disappointed with kef customer support and that was the reason i switched to another brand. Kef Uni-q has engineering issue and exploded during time. back to fluance, based on what you pay sound is good, clear, sub woofer is a good addition, design is nice and white speakers are beautiful, speaker abit big and heavy and box is not really sexy. improvements that i suggest is reduce weight and do better finishing on the box, and probably move subs on sides instead of down firing.

I live in Malaysia, bought it after watching so many videos and forums from audiophile groups. The sound is fantastic after 10 hours of listening. Looks elegance and expensive...heavy too. I take the cover out when listening as it looks very sexy. I need to spend sometime now to get the soundstage. Am happy with my speakers.

Amazon Customer June 1, 2021

One speaker was in a box without a picture and Fluance labeled. When connected top woofer was resonating and making electrostatic noise. Could not believe it at first as these looked nice. But then I recall white van speakers' story when people would buy good-looking staff with bad sound. Return looks like a pain too

I bought the predecessor to these speakers in 2013 (nearly identical) and I still get childishly excited to listen to them, they are insanely great speakers, Really...

Find a Class A or AB amp and you won't regret a thing.

J'aui reçu mes enceintes Fluance xl8 mardi dernier. Livré rapidement! J'ai aussi en ma possession la version précédente soit xl7. Je dois dire que la nouvelle version xl8 est une belle amélioration de la précédente version. Tous les hauts parleurs ont été changés ainsi que le crossovers. L'étagement entre les trois voix est mieux construit que sur la version xl7 donc une très bonne balance entre grave, medium et aigus. Après les avoir fait jouer pendant 12 heures le son s'est ouvert avec une réponse bien équilibrée. Une autre belle amélioration est la présence de deux évents à l'arrière qui permettent aux basses fréquences de descendre jusqu'à 35 herz. Après avoir fait des tests avec plusieurs styles de musique je suis très satisfait de mon achat. Très bon rapport qualité prix. Je les recommande sans hésitation.

Simply brilliant . I never wanted to replace my Bose 901 speakers I have enjoyed for over 15 years . Since redoing my mancave over the winter , my son indicated the Bose simply did not suit the room . He was right . I went to Amazon to research tower speakers . I was born and raised Canadian but proudly live in Buffalo , Ny for over 35 years . We are located 35 minutes from Niagara Falls , Canada . Fluance are manufactured there . I received them the next day after ordering...WOW . I tested the new speakers with a great variety of music . I was blown away by the sound on all levels . They are beautifully built inside and out . I consider myself an audiophile since the 70's . I have been through many speakers over the years and these are fantastic . The Fluance speakers are an absolute steal for the money . Good day , eh .

All other high rated reviews cover everything nicely. Flew these in to Australia off the back of Andrew Robinson’s YouTube video. As the title says “Just Brilliant”

These speakers are awesome. They sound incredible and the value is excellent. I would have thought the speakers cost a lot more. I haven't turned on my subwoofers since I received them. I would definitely recommend them.

David K March 28, 2021 British Columbia, Canada

I was growing bored with my 5.1 system (another brand) and wanted to go back to a pure 2 channel system. Partly because of where I live and current restrictions, I was not able to go to shops and audition speakers so I bought these speakers based on reviews and spec's... I am not disappointed! I have them paired up with a high end Yamaha amplifier (connected with heavy bi-wired cable and banana plugs) and an RT-85 turntable complete with record weight. My taste in music is all over the map...classical, blues, rock, folk, jazz... these play them all well. A few things to keep in mind: 1-due to their low sensitivity, they need to be pushed, 2-they really need time to break in...more than the 10 hours suggested and 3-like most speakers, positioning is critical...I spent a lot of time playing with angles, distances and location to get the soundstage just right... well worth the effort and time...they sound and look amazing!

Darrald L March 11, 2021

Great all-round speaker. The sound seems to be natural and transparent and the floor firing sub woofers are not over whelming, but well balanced to where the bass is defined but it doesn't take over or over or interfere with the mid or the high range response .

Baregrass March 5, 2021

These are very good speakers and don't cost a fortune. Very clear and with a surprising amount of bass, excellent midrange and the tweeters project well.
