    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."

    This sound base is another fantastic looking and sounding system by Fluance. I have multiple systems from Fluance and they all look and sound great.

    Wow! You won’t find a better product in this category for the money. I own a couple of other manufacturers similar products and the don’t come close to the sound, the base and the stage size. And I have tried ones at more than twice the price!

    I’ve had this unit for just over two years. About 6 or so months ago the unit stopped responding to the remote (even though the remote’s IR emitter still was functioning). A couple months ago, the unit stopped even powering on.

    Prior to this I’d say it produced solid quality audio for the price, was compact, but the remote was cheap and fiddly. I’ve bought another Fluance product before and was pretty pleased, but this one was definitely a disappointment in terms of shelf life.

    Looks better than expected, very solid sound. The only thing we do not like is that there is no visual for volume control. Overall great product.

    This is an amazing product especially for the price. Setup was easy with me enjoying spectacular sound within minutes. Bass is incredible particularly for movies and TV. Music performance is also excellent although even without bass boost enabled it can be slightly heavy for some tracks.

    Build quality and design are evident right away. This will certainly motivate me to acquire more Fluance products in the future. Keep up the great work Fluance!

    Perfect one piece solution to improving tv sound. Also a great bluetooth speaker for music. If you are looking at a Bose soundbar you might want to try this instead. Better price and fuller richer sound.

    I just received my soundbar and it is amazing in every way! I have a 5.1 Fluance speaker system that is just as amazing so when I decided to purchase a soundbar I knew where to look. You can't go wrong with this speaker.

    Great sound in our 1100+ sq. ft. condo. Thankfully, we have really thick concrete walls so there have been no complaints from the neighours.

    Purchased in Dec. 2017 after reading a review in CNET.com I believe.It replaced our sound system which was good but was a lot of clutter with all the speakers, sub-woofer, receiver and wiring.

    The sound is so good we have never even bothered to use the BASS BOOST.

    Ok so first I will mention we bought both the AB40 and the Ai60’s over Christmas, both on sale at a fabulous price range.
    The AB40 is in the bedroom optically hooked up to a 40” Sony Tv , great for sports and movies after properly connecting it to the satellite receiver and the Apple TV kit ( both required Dolby off setting).
    I have also tested out the Bluetooth option for music through my iPad and iphone, great sound with deep rich bass and high end.
    Quite happy with the unit and will likely never use it to its complete potential in its present setting but maybe one day when moved to a rec room setting for full exposure. All this quality for a bargain price of 150 $ CAD delivered to the door. Awesome!
    Now to the Ai60’s, presently in the living room, mainly for music listening but hooked up to a 58” Samsung tv for sports and movies.
    Again adjustments had to be made to the satellite receiver and the smart tv set( both Dolby off settings). Once done they worked perfectly. Sound again is deep and crisp at low to moderate levels, soundstage is noticeable and instruments can be picked out easily and clearly.
    In the present setting I see no need for a subwoofer hookup as the sound is deep and low when needed, maybe like the AB40 if ever used in a home environment( we are in an apartment setting), they could be properly tested out for volume loads, but for our usage we are quite happy to have them both filling our place with premium sound at a super price. The Ai60’s came to the door at 300$CAD all in.
    So for these prices they cannot be beat.
    Over the years I have had audiophile equipment, bulky and sound worthy but now space requirements( and great audio research) has led me to these powered units with an internal DAC unit to eliminate all that equipment and bluetoothed or rca connected to my MacBook Air with a great sound card to reproduce any format superbly.
    All told great stuff and I look forward to more options in the future, maybe the Ai40’s for the sailboat when at the marina.
    Thanks for another great Canadian product!
    Salut!
