These were purchased to replace a set of far more expensive non working Klipsch powered bookshelf speakers and I couldn't be happier. I had my sights on the Ai40's but they were unavailable in the finish (Bamboo/White) I wanted and I am glad I upgraded. Unfortunately for Fluance, I don't need to purchase a sub woofer now as the base response in the Ai60's is excellent. I have them hooked up a custom built PC via the included RCA cable. A tiny complaint was that the hoped for Optical cable wasn't included. Other than that, big thumbs up!

The speakers are definitely not conventional when it comes to setting them up in regards to older speakers to a receiver, but once I figured out the best layout for my personal needs, it was a breeze. The bass is fantastic and the sound quality that these small speakers produce is incredible, especially putting them on opposite sides of my room. Overall, the speakers work incredibly well and as introductory speakers and my first purchase from fluance, I have to say that they are one of the best sets of speakers I’ve ever used.

Tanner,D August 20, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 6 Years Kansas, United States

These are a great replacement for a soundbar or a standard 2.X passive setup. I wanted to simply my media setup but still get good sound for music, games, movies, etc. I current setup is:

Optical for TV
RCA for turntable
USB for raspberry pi with Spotify client running

Pros:
-Sound: Great amount of bass. I live in an apartment so it's the perfect amount that you can hear but doesn't shake the walls, although you could easily add a sub if you'd like. Where you will really see the differences between these and a soundbar is in the mid-bass / mid frequencies. I actually had a soundbar side by side with the ai60s and the lack of sound in the bar/sub crossover region was obvious.
-Nice variety of inputs
-Hits a solid price point between lower end speakers (Edifier) and upper end (Kanto).

Cons:
-Dialogue can be harder to hear at lower volumes (result of DSP I believe). Wish there was more tuning the end user could do on the DSP/equalizer part.
-No auto on/off. This might not be a problem for some people but this is one of those nice features that other speakers and soundbars often have. It'd be nice not having to pick up the remote as much.

Neutrals (extra thoughts):
-Wish there was a solid white colorway

I was not able to update my previous review regarding a tweeter issue, so wanted to post another review. Fluance reached out via email after my speakers had a tweeter issue out of the box. We did some initial troubleshooting, and it was determined they needed to be shipped back. Long story short, I had an easy return process and a new pair of speakers arrived less than a week after the return. Great customer service! I have the new pair set up and they sound fantastic. If you are a spotify user, there are some great playlists for "speaker test tracks" and I tried a few different tracks to get them dialed in. I have the bass set at the halfway mark (+5) and the treble setting a bit higher (+6) and found this to be my favorite for my environment. The bass is very punchy. Guitar and vocals are excellent. Very heavy and well-made, they look great in my listening room! I think they'll get even better with more playing time. The remote is great. Wish there was a dial or indicator for bass and treble as you have to count light blinks to know your settings. I was so excited to use these speakers, I am glad my initial issue was resolved and I can enjoy these. Great value for the $.

Love these powered speakers! I have them in cabinets since they are enclosed so they can be hidden. Using these speakers for my tv and a lot of music listening with Bluetooth and turntable.

I use these hooked up to my TV for movies and spotify, and they work beautifully. For my two bedroom apartment, they really fill the space.Easy setup, beautiful product.

These speakers are good but I definitely get odd variances in volume - good for casual listening, but I would get a seperate amp and speaker for hifi

I was so excited for these as they had (almost) everything I wanted and looked great to boot. I read a lot of reviews and watched some videos and decided they would work for my setup (small living room, wishing to connect a turntable but also have bluetooth connectivity from my phone). For reference, my other listening setups are a pair of self-powered Equator D5 studio monitors (for mixing music, but I've also used them just for listening) and a 30-year-old pair of passive Bose 301s (no Bose haters, please -- if you're moving around a room and not sitting front and center, they can be quite nice).The good:- I thought the treble was fairly well-balanced- they look GREAT- easy connectivity- not too bigThe bad:- With bluetooth connected, the mid-bass was so prominent it gave me a headache after a few minutes, even at modest volumes. It sounds like the DSP was designed by a bass player who thought they needed to be turned up in every song. Even with the bass control turned completely down, it was overdone. Was this to please people who don't have a subwoofer? It didn't work. The bass is flubby and annoying, not tight like I'd expect from a closed speaker without ports. I tried isolating the speakers on stands and pads, moving them away from walls, moving them low and high...it's bass: it gets around. No luck. STRANGELY, this is less of a problem with the RCA input that I was driving from my turntable, though still there. Anyway, these have to go back. :(- Smaller issue: you can't switch which speaker is left vs. right, which was unfortunate for my listening setup and locations of my outlets (the right speaker plugs into the outlet) but not a deal-breaker.Overall: I'm assuming these were made for people to enjoy with movies? I don't understand why the bass is so prominent. Upon reading some more in-depth reviews of the frequency response, I see that the bass is, indeed, overstated at lower volumes. Sorry, Fluance, I can't listen at 10 all the time. I really, really wanted these to work, but the bass headaches will win out.

Excellent bass - very smooth, very tight. Compliments my rt81 turntable.

Crystal, P July 22, 2020 Novice Listener - 5 Years California, United States

RT80 Turntable and Ai60 powered bookshelf speakers work great together. Sound quality too a smooth and the price point is very affordable. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase.

Ron C July 12, 2020

These speakers are a great value for the money. The sound quality is crisp & clear. Spaced evenly in the room, the balance from L to R is well balanced.

MGR July 11, 2020

Bought these on Amazon used from Fluance. They looked brand new and they sound awesomebothj through bluetooth for music and with my TV using the optical port. Well worth the money and I am now looking into getting a set of 7.1 speakers for my home theater.

Ivan S July 10, 2020

My new Zoom crew demands that I work out of my kitchen nook, as it has the most neutral-looking wall space behind me. Read lots of online reviews before landing on the A140 and A160 BT speakers for above my kitchen cabinets. At about $200 for A160 refurbs (about the price of the A140's new), the 6" Fluances were exactly the price point I needed to replace my Samson BT3's which were fine, until you cranked them a bit louder then, it was distortion for days....I gave them to my gf for her bedroom, which is a win-win for us both.When they arrived direct from the factory, they sat on my butcher block facing me for a few days as I worked filling the room with clear mids and solid tight bass. They sound like my digital stereo and just about as good as my 12" Cerwin Vegas at about a 6-8 foot distance from my seat, which was a BIG surprise. There is a definite difference in the RCA jack connected sound in the highs vs. bluetooth from my laptop esp. in the highs, where the cymbals seem a bit less defined, but not really muddled, but just a little. I expected this as Bluetooth 5.0 spec really doesn't have the quality yet of wired. Where it DOES have the quality is in the pre-amp and power amp stages where there is little audible hiss, even when cranked high.I let the speakers "burn in" with Weather Report's Black Market album on FLAC for a few days before moving them off the counter and nearer to the ceiling, but honestly liked the presence and frequency response better when on axis. But it's that bass, you just can't ignore it, even when playing at lower volumes. It comes off as natural and effortless will definitely make you think differently about the smaller woofer sizes for a sealed enclosure.The remote is a nice addition to my pile of black remotes all claiming +Vol- <x (mute) and other sound changing controls, but it works well and feels good in the hand.No complaints at all, even the pairing process was pretty seamless. Well done, Fluance!

Chad G. July 9, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 4 Years North Carolina, United States

I was very excited to try out this speaker after looking at several online reviews, but after getting it in the mail, I really hope it was a bad unit and not indicative of Fluance in general.

My use case:
* I Live in a studio apartment, so I wanted an all-in-one speaker to handle USB, optical, RCA and wireless inputs for music and gaming. Needed to get enough low-end to avoid needing a sub, and would be used as near-fields as they were on my desk.

Pros:
* A plethora of connectivity. Everything I wanted for my use case.
* Powered so you don't have to deal with amp pairings, etc.
* Looks great. It's nice to see speakers with visual variety.
* Price was right. Shipping was free.

Cons:
* My unit came with a defective optical port so I couldn't get it to hold a cable.
* USB audio was unusable. Playing music with any amount of bass would cause the highs to quiet when those bass-heavy sections started. It's hard to explain. It honestly sounded like hearing the sound when your head is under water. Confirmed with several cables and two different computers that it wasn't the source audio.
* Customer service was slow. When I tried to get a return I had to follow-up twice to get the return label.

Summary:
* When you are dealing with international shipping, you don't want to have to deal with QC issues. Hopefully it was a fluke, but buyer beware.
