CNET Review of the Fluance AB40 Soundbase
"The highest compliment we can pay to any sound bar or base is that once we're involved watching a movie or listening to music we can forget we're listening to a sound bar or base. The Fluance AB40 is in that group."Read the Full Review

Best Buy Reviews the AB40
"if you are using this as it should be intended, as an enhanced audio system for your TV, you are going enjoy every minute."
Outstanding sound and value. This is the best speaker I have owned, so happy I made the purchase. Perfect for my apartment.
Outstanding sound for the price. The best speaker I've owned. The sound quality is on par with other speakers in the $500-600 range. It is simple to setup and lasts forever.
I have been using the Fluance for about six months now. and it is the best i have heard out of the 6 i own. with the bass boost on this unite can rattle windows and vibrate the walls i never heard a unite with built in bass the could produce these kinda lows. once you break in the speakers everything is perfect the highs mids and lows. Cant say enough good things about this soundbase. but i will say this, with the bass boost turned off on the AB40 "default" the bass is still 3/4 times deeper then most of the of company's that provide built in bass on their
soundbar/bases. You get what you pay for. in this case that's true i highly recommend the Fluance AB40
This thing is an absolute beast. Plays extremely loud without distortion.
One suggestion- make sure your TV sound is set to PCM or will not hear any sound. Auto may be your TV's default as mine was.
I stream music from Amazon and it sounds absolutely wonderful. Can't say enough about it. Go ahead and buy it!
I have had this soundbase for 10 months now and still can't believe my ears! This has been the best purchase of 2017.! Along side of the sx6's and the sxbp's. Fluance..finding the needle in the haystack!
Stunning sound, the bass is breathtaking for such a compact unit. It is a serious piece of equipment for any audiophile. I will be purchasing another one without doubt.
Sounds great, perfect for my bedroom PC/TV. - Verified Store
I purchased the AB40 to replace a Bose Solo. The AB40 is in a completely different league sonically. It is a true high fidelity system capable of delivering clean, undistorted sound across the audio spectrum without any obvious colouration. Bass response is solid without boominess or resonance. The system sounds great with music, TV, and movie sources alike, even at high volumes. Fluance have really raised the bar for sound bases with the AB40.
This is a must buy. The difference between this and standard tv speakers is insane. I have a Sony 930D 65in and its fit is just perfect. I can hear the dialog! And dang that bass is sweet!Best $250 you will spend - Verified Store
The AB40 overall is a great piece of equipment - I am really enjoying it ! I haven't experienced any problems to date. The only thing that I don't like that much is the remote control - a little sluggish turning the sound base on at times. - Verified Store
This is a winner. The sound is incredible.So glad we bought it.And Fluence tech suport is knowledgeable and responsive - Verified Store
I LOVE THIS SYSTEM!!! THERE IS ONE THING I HATE ABOUT IT.. WHEN U TURN IT UP IT DISTORTS REALLY BAD! BUT OHTER THEN THAT ITS AN AMAZING PRODUCT I AM SO PROUD TO HAVE IT IN MY HOME
First the tremendous good - the sound. Luxurious and clear. This would be my first choice for sound quality.But...I had to use the aux analog input and had a huge hum at any volume. Its looks like a ground loop even though its on the same power strip.No problem w iPhone on aux input.No problem outputting the TV to Yamaha monitors.Returning it.Green light would have been staring me in the face and driven me crazy in the bedroom at night.Digital input not an option, and I would not be willing to have a second remote just for volume.However if your using the digital input and don't mind a second remote for volume, I highly recommend it for the sound quality. - Verified Store
Far exceeded my expectations, the sound is incredible. Only 1 point off for because the bluetooth reception is very spotty; you get a lot of dropped music gaps unless your phone has an absolute clear line of sight to the unit and you do not move around much. This is annoying when using the speaker while dancing with your phone in your hand. If you move behind your couch or into another room, forget it; your bluetooth music will stop. - Verified Store
Good sound base for the money. Bass response in the Bass Boost mode is significantly boosted. I was surprised there are so much perceived low end response from drivers as small as the ones used. 3D mode works. I would not say it's close to a full 5.1 or 7.1 HT setup. But it does a decent job trying to mimic 3D effects compared to regular stereo mode. Sound quality is good. I stream music to it via Bluetooth. Sound was clear and decent even though it's playing a lossy source. In my subjective opinion, there are some minor sibilence and the mids can sound slightly harsh depending on the particular song. I also think stereo imaging and separation is more concentrated in the middle vs. a typical stereo speaker set up that is properly distanced and toe'd in. But sound perception is very subjective. It may just be me so others may not 'imagine' such an effect in their heads.I would say it's a good sound base for the $200 bucks I'd paid for it. - Verified StoreSee all reviews
