Fluance aims to please budget audiophiles with the introduction of new table-top Bluetooth with aptX wireless speaker for $199. The new Fi50 is the second model in the Fi series which should improve upon last year’s Fi30, priced $50 less (see our Fluance Fi30 review). The company says the Fi50 boasts clean, undistorted bass, a clear midrange, and transparent natural highs and can handle the highest volume levels with outstanding clarity for room filling, concert-like sound.
The Fi50 merges dual full-range 5” woven woofers, coaxial tweeters and a powerful 40-watt amplifier, resulting in a broader dynamic range and extreme accuracy for well-defined sound reproduction. Additional premium features include two finely tuned bass ports to control low frequency and improve efficiency; an adjustable bass and treble equalizer; and sound isolation floor spikes to eliminate vibration and prevent music distortion.
The Fi50’s elegant and pleasing design also attributes to its premium sound. The hand-made wood cabinet suppresses resonance for accurate response, increased warmth and an overall more natural sound, allowing users to listen to music the way the artist intended.
To complement its high-caliber sound and design, the Fi50 features a sleek touch control panel which allows users to adjust the volume and equalizer settings. Its white illuminated display shows the volume, treble and bass levels. Users can easily pair smartphones, tablets, laptops and more to the Fi50 via Bluetooth technology to stream music effortlessly. It also has a 2.1A USB port for quick and easy charging of most USB-powered devices and a 3.5mm auxiliary input to play music from other non-Bluetooth devices.
