    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."

    Bought this for our RV because its difficult to hear the TV with the AC on and sound bars are even more expensive. We set it up in our Master bedroom to check it out until the weather breaks. Excellent sound including the base. It is going to be perfect in our RV.

    Ive tried a few sondbars in the past, but the AB40 was the best overall soundbar that ive tried in that price range.

    Michael S February 23, 2019 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years North Carolina, United States

    The AB40 sound bar is awesome the sound is impeccable. Who needs surround sound? This lil gem has base and sound that fill my 20 x 16 room easily. Give this piece some serious consideration before spending $1000's

    Excellent sound base. Fully satisfied. I do not miss the sub woofer. My grand son and I watched the Polar Express and we could feel the rumbling of the train. It fills the room with warm sound and I'm completely satisfied.
    Fluance offers excellent products at an excellent price.

    Tremendous soundbar at a great price.

    I gifted this to my fiance for Christmas. I originally planned to purchase an entire home theater speaker system but due to the small size of the room, I decided to go with this soundbase only. Needless to say, she and I have both been incredibly impressed and happy with the product.

    Highly recommend this to anybody who wants to improve their TV or gaming experience with fuller, deeper audio. The improved sound quality is immediately noticeable vs. the TV speaker alone.

    We have also been loving the Bluetooth feature. While we mainly use this for TV and gaming, we have also used it to play music and it puts out an incredibly pleasing sound for music, too.

    The build on this product is sturdy--it is made to sit beneath a large flat-screen TV after all--and it the black finish is visually pleasing as well. It looks great in our living room.

    I'd highly recommend this product to anybody interested in a sound bar/sound base solution, especially at this price. It is a complete steal.

    this is amazing sounds awesome i recommend this product

    Bernie November 16, 2018 Intermediate Listener - 1 Year Alberta, Canada

    Husband was happy with this got rid of all his other equipment since we downsized.

    Jason C October 10, 2018 Advanced Listener - 10 Years Georgia, United States

    I was looking for a soundbar replacement and was planning on purchasing the Sonos system. I decided to see if fluance had soundbars since I had purchased from them previously and was very pleased. After brief online reviews I decided to purchase the AB40 and I can once again say I am not disappointed. It is clean, crisp and when bass boost or 3D sound is activated, I am blown by the overall dynamics of the system. For the price I think it would be practically impossible to find as comparable system.

    Jamie E September 21, 2018 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Alberta, Canada

    The only thing. I wish there was indication somewhere in the gas or the remote that displays that bass boost or 3 D sound was selected... it can be difficult to determine depending if it’s TV, movie or music

    Greg Burleigh j September 7, 2018 Intermediate Listener - 20+ Years Ontario, Canada

    Needs to have more treble options find it has two much bass

    Kim D August 12, 2018 Washington, United States

    I bought this for my son for his B-day. I have not heard it myself but according to him comment "it sounds amazing!" I knew it would as I personally own Fluance Tower speakers which have been amazing. I will always look to Fluance for amazing sound!

    Mike M August 3, 2018 New Jersey, United States

    Perfect. Well constructed, solid wood. Simple setup easy to use. I listen to music on it everyday. Looking forward to adding a RT81 to complement it. Thanks Sean for the follow up call

    Steven D. Eib October 22, 2017 Virginia, United States

    I am hearing impaired. My days of rock and roll are behind me but I do enjoy good movies. The problem is NOT volume, it is clarity. I wear high quality hearing aids but they are an imperfect fix. Standard TV speakers are absolutely worthless, so subtitles were my only option. The Fluance AB40 has solved the problem. I now can watch movies/TV and understand the dialog. My wife (normal hearing) loves it too. No high volume, just clear voices. The AB40 should be sold by the same people that sell hearing aids. They both connect me to the outside world.
