Fi70 Three-Way Wireless High Fidelity Music System

Product Review (submitted on March 12, 2016):
I recently purchased a hunting farm with a little house and wanted to set up a simple one stop music system to sit in a corner of the living room. My music collection continues to live in my main house and transporting things back and forth would be a pain. I also listen to the BBC a lot over TuneIn Radio, so I decided that digitization and Bluetooth would be the way forward. As if at my command, out comes the Fluance Fi70. Given the good reviews of other Fluance products (too soon for proper reviews of the Fi70 I found) I decided it was worth a try. I couldn't be more glad that I did. It was a breeze to set up, looks striking (I have the bamboo with white) and is very nicely finished. My wife likes it with the baffle, I like it without, but with the magnetic attachment it's easy to pop it on and off.
After a couple of weeks break-in, the initially slightly tipped up treble is smoothing down nicely and the base is tight despite the less than ideal placement. The midrange is pleasing and the sound altogether well-integrated.
OK it's not as good as my $30K main stereo system, but it only cost one sixtieth as much! And there would be no room for a person in the sweet spot (if I could find one) if it were in this room. My biggest question is "How can so much goodness cost only $500?" If a UE Megaboom costs $300 (which it does, I have one and I think it's a great product), how come the Fi70 costs only 66% more, with all it's heft, good looks, amplification and six drivers? This is easily the best audio bargain I have ever bought and I started being interested in good value "hi-fi" when I went to college in England in 1973. My advice...get one before Fluance realizes what a fabulous bargain they're offering and raise the price. -Verified Store
