Wow, I can't believe the sound from this unit. I'm an audiophile from way back in the early 80's so yes I'm a bit of a snob. I own a small brewery here in new Brunswick and wanted an Ipod dock but at the same time I want very crisp, clean sound and this unit surpassed anything I was expecting. I've been ranting to everybody about this unit. Thanks Fluance, very, very well done.

Jay M November 20, 2015

Way too over priced. Nice quality, but when you can pick up Phillips DC91 with cool brushed aluminum case great styling, and also functions as a alarm clock radio and docking station with very respectable sound snd remote, it just doesn't make sense to pay over twice the price unless you're putting it in a large room. Wouldn't want the fluance on my night table!

At $150.00, I'd consider the purchase; otherwise, I'll pass for now.

Using in my office at work. Beautiful finish. Great sound using lossless music from iPod, even half-way through the break-in (10 hour) period. Worth the money over the $30-60 trash from retail stores.

This is my second FISDK500 iPod dock that I have purchased for the incredible price of $99.00. I was so impressed with the first one, not only did I decide to buy another, but had no problem getting two of my friends from work to buy as well. It really looks impressive, but the sound is spectacular. I guess my Klipsch iPod dock is destined to be listed on Ebay !!! Very happy !

This is a great product.

Jeff M November 20, 2015

This dock is amazing I still can;t believe the sound that comes out. This is a must buy! Getting another one for my bro for Christmas!

Shawn I November 20, 2015

Sound is crisp. Easy to set up. Base is less than I was expecting (although I had very very high expectations based on the reviews). I also think the max volume could be higher. I bought this as a gift for someone and compared it (side-by-side) to my no longer manufactured Apple iPod Hi Fi. Grant it the Apple product had a MSRP about $100 more, it sounds better and plays louder. One major plus for this speaker dock is the component lines so you can use it as your primary TV speaker. Overall, I think it is an above average speaker for the price.

Keith H November 20, 2015

OUTSTANDING product for the money! I actually got it for $99 during a promotional deal. Truly money well spent.

My Bose Sound dock I had for many years broke. I was searching and researched this product. Committed to purchasing it. Got it a few days ago. LOVE IT! I loved it right out of the box, but did the break in for 10 hours. I love the full rich sound. I don't even push it past the 20 volume it turns on with. Oh, I tested it to 40 and was blown away by the volume and clarity. The sound, in my opinion, surpasses the Bose.

Love it. Cool design, super well made, sounds great.

Ipad and Ipad 2 can have their piece of the cake.... and eat it too!
I´m a love fluance products, and when a fluance ipod-iphone dock was announced I quickly got excited!
When I got my set of speakers, I was impressed with the quality construction and sound quality is also superb.
However I wanted to use my ipad and this made me do a quick search for a "dock extender cable". (costs about 5 bucks)
It basically plugs to the top of the speaker and then you plug it into your ipad and voila!
FULL ipad control from your fluance speaker!!!!! EVEN CHARGING IS SUPPORTED!
highly recommended!

If you look on this site, you will see this is my third review of a Fluance product. I've owned the AVHTB+, the Fluance XL7F and now I won the Fisdk500 in a design competition. I just received this in the mail. I sold my AVHTB+ to fund my purchase of the XL7F. I love this company, they got me into sound, before I started reading about and hearing good audio I thought all speakers were basically the same. You plug something in, you get sound. End of story. Well I'm a fanboy now, because everytime they've delivered something it sounds and looks well beyond what I paid. This ipod dock puts out a surprising amount of bass too. But it's designed for nearfield listening, 6 -12 feet away I'd say (though I can hear it from several rooms away), so it does go pretty loud. The bass was kind of boomy the first time I plugged it in, but when I added the metal feet (and washes to prevent scratching the boom mostly went (I think I was getting a lot of reflections and distortion from the surface it was on), I've not broken it in the 10 hours recommended yet, but with my experience of the other two systems, I know Fluance products do benefit with a good break in.. get that butyl rubber surround a little more flexible. Anyway. I'm very happy with this. It's more substantial, heavy and it sounds better than the other ipod docks I've heard, in fact it was more of these things than I thought it would be. Will it be the life and soul of the party? When you want to crank the speakers till the cops roll up? No, it won't, but it's not designed for that... If you want the cops to roll by, get the XL7Fs. The cops will roll by, but they might let you off because they like the sound.
What this ipod dock delivers is really great nearfield listening with an attractive design. The sound is almost comparable to the AVHTB+.. But actually I'd say the towers in that system do sound a bit better than the dock.
This is what people want though... a self powered dock for their ipod and it delivers what it promises. I would say though if you really care about great music reproduction get the XL7Fs, a good amp and you will have sound your friends really envy, the XL7Fs stand head and shoulders above the other products I've heard from them. If you want something for your bedroom or the office go ahead and get this, it won't disappoint at all. It's a really nice looking and sounding unit. Thumbs up to Fluance once again. A really great company who focus on their products rather than marketing or other BS.

I gave as a Christmas gift to my son the FiSDK500 Dock Music System for his iphone. He loves it! Thank you for such an impressive product! He also loves the sleek black design of the unit.

Paul Beck November 20, 2015

I am not one to write reviews, however the FiSDK500 has just totally impressed me . Excellent sound, plenty of clear volume for parties, not a rattle, buzz or falter. For the price of this product it is a steal, is there a better deal ? I doubt it, well done Fluance!

Edward H November 20, 2015

I am a reseller for CWDLimited (Fluance) and have an E-Bay Store. From when I first listed the FiSDK500 in January, I must have sold at least 6. The FeedBack received for this product was amazing. All positive in every respect. I never had a product that had so many hits, page views and people watching in such a shot time. If you haven't seen it yet CNET has a Video Review which is excellent.
CNET Editors' Rating 4.0 stars.

Gave this to my granddaughter for Christmas. She loves it. She wanted big sound from her ipod and now thinks grandma is the greatest.

Doug H November 20, 2015

Fluance, you have a winner on your hands. Great product and sound. Worth every penny and more. keep turning out the great products.

Alan de Zilva November 20, 2015

Decent enough sound but misleading marketing, cheap and flimsy-looking 'adapters' and my order was dispatched via Canada Post while Fluance sent me an email with a tracking number and link to the UPS website.

First up - the legend 'for iPod and iPad' is very prominent . This is true ONLY as long as you have a 4th Gen Apple product. So if you bought yourself an iPod 5 Touch 11 whole months ago (11 months is an eternity in Consumer Electronics, Fluance) then you will be plugging your device into the 'AUX' slot in the back as your Lightning adapter will not work. Nor will the 'AUX' input charge your device or let you use the remote control for anything but power and volume.

I'm no lawyer but it seems to me that if you make a sweeping statement along the lines of 'FOR iPod and iPad' then you are stating that ANY iPod or iPad will work on this device so shouldn't you make damn sure you cover them all? Again, Fluance - 11 whole months since the Lightning adapter was introduced to the market and I believe Apple sold 9 million iPhone 5's in the first weekend after introducing it last week. Although these were US sales, none of them will work on your unit unless plugged into the 'AUX' slot. Nor will any of the iPods sold in Canada almost a year ago. Perhaps your legend should read 'FOR IPOD AND IPAD IF THEY ARE A YEAR OLD AT LAST'?

'ADAPTERS" - and this is what swung the sale for me in Fluance's favour, silly me. They say they have SIX adapters in the box so I figured just about any Apple device will work on this. In reality, these are but flimsy plastic BASES that your 4th Gen iPod or iPad will REST on while plugged into that 30-pin thingy, gadget, dinglehopper, whatchermaycallit - hang on, isn't that what an ADAPTER is?

And then there's the shipping SNAFU. I got a link to the UPS website a with tracking number but my order had been shipped through Canada Post. One-line apology from Customer Services. When I asked about using the unit with a 5th Gen iPod, again a one-liner asking me to plug into the 'AUX' at the back.

Lousy, overall.

Doug H November 20, 2015

Another great product from Fluance. For the money you can't beat the price. The sound is outstanding. No destortion when you crank it up. Fluance Team, you did it again. This is a winner.

Pranav November 20, 2015

Amazing sound! I was a bit skeptical as I had never heard the sound before and I totally based my purchase on review by Steve Guttenberg; the sound quality is amazing and definitely worth it. Pretty good sound for the size of the speakers. I am glad I purchased these speakers.

ALAN R November 20, 2015

Absolutely love this. The full rich sound is amazing. Love the look and finish of the speakers. I have it in my living room. Volume goes to 40 and that is loud. I find myself turning down from the 20 level volume it turns on with. I love having volume and purity of sound available when I want it. This sounds great at all volumes. Extremely Happy with this and will spend rest of my life selling this company to others. Thank You.
