A really good surprise. Quality speaker with great peaks.
About the speaker
The Fi50 is a two-way speaker framework manufactured from MDF to stifle bureau resonances that can bring about twisting. The bureau comes wrapped in your decision of three wood lacquers: walnut, bamboo, or dark fiery debris. My unique audit test came in walnut, however it had clearly been around the survey hinder a couple times. There were a few scratches, some restorative harm, and it had a blown right woofer. The substitution Fluance sent included the dark powder complete, so now I know direct that those two completions are of high caliber and they look incredible. I assume the bamboo complete looks similarly as great.
Fluance gives both elastic feet or top notch metal spikes that you can string into attachments on the base of the bureau. The spikes will likely do the better occupation of keeping vibrations from exchanging from the speaker cupboard to the surface the speaker is laying on, yet they will effortlessly stamp a wooden floor or tabletop. I’d recommend utilizing them just on hard surfaces, for example, stone, marble, tile, or glass.
The Fi50 gives you your decision of great elastic feet or spikes.
A couple of 3/5-inch coaxially mounted, ferrofluid-cooled silk delicate arch tweeters handle the upper end of the sound range, while double 5.0-inch woven glass fiber composite convey liberal measures of bass. These are supported by a couple of bass reflex ports in the back of the bureau. Everything is driven by a 40-watt enhancer, conveying a noteworthy recurrence reaction of 40Hz to 20kHz—an uncommon spec at this value point.
The Fi50’s Bluetooth radio backings the aptX sound codec for close CD-quality sound proliferation, and there’s a 3.5mm aux contribution for playing from other sources.You’ll just profit by aptX if the playback gadget additionally underpins, and when I matched the speaker with a Pioneer XDB-100R high-determination advanced sound player, it promptly showed a message that it had perceived the Fi50 as an aptX speaker.
The Fi50 incorporates great spikes that join to the base of the speaker.
Try not to be tricked by the USB port on the back, in any case; it isn’t fit for playing music from your cell phone. Rather, it serves as a convenient charging port so you can charge your cell phone or tablet while playing music.
You’ll utilize four touch-delicate surface controls on the highest point of the bureau to deal with the front screen’s brilliance (counting turning it off), bass and treble, and volume. The very much utilized harmed survey unit demonstrated to me that these stickers won’t not face the trial of time; a few them had somewhat worn off. I didn’t see any issues with the fresher unit, yet it’s something to know about.
When you first start up the Fi50, you’ll see that it sounds more like a couple of good bookshelf speakers than a Bluetooth speaker. I was instantly taken by the Fi50’s nearness in my room. It tosses a huge soundstage for its size. For instance Lady Gaga’s vocals on the MQA form of “Lavish Life” from Cheek to Cheek with Tony Bennett were far bigger than the speaker’s fenced in area. The going with piano was additionally full bodied. This melody flaunted the advantages of speaker’s recurrence reaction contrasted with the opposition.

The Fi50 is voiced to the hotter side of unbiased, with a delicately moved off top end. The sound of the unit’s fenced in area comes through on occasion, showing itself in a marginally square shaped and syrupy midrange that shaded vocals and affected how a portion of the flow went over. For instance, on the MQA adaptation of Tom Petty’s “Here Comes My Girl,” Petty’s vocals were somewhat level and excessively casual, recessed behind the music. Percussion were great, however not the best in this value extend. The drums on this track were cleaner, with more snap and mid-section hitting pound through the much littler Riva S—yet at a more restricted recurrence reaction.
All, taking all things together, the Fluance Fi50 made an excellent showing with regards to of pumping out the tunes—at room-filling, ear-penetrating volume—without displaying strain. It ought to do fine whether you are utilizing it as ambient sounds as a part of the kitchen or pumping up the jams at a gathering.
