PC Mag Reviews the Ai60 Bookshelf Speakers

"The Ai60 speakers can get exceptionally loud, and on tracks with intense sub-bass content... the drivers deliver powerful bass response."

MikeH July 28, 2020 Advanced Listener - 15 Years Ohio, United States

I recently converted my dining area into a two channel listening room. While deciding what to purchase, I decided to try a pair of AI60s based on all the positive reviews. I ordered and they arrived less than a week later. I unboxed the excellent/secure packaging, and was very impressed with the build quality. The speakers look very nice. I selected the black fronts with the dark wood case. These speakers are heavy, and they are larger than you might expect...but perfect for my intended use. I paired with bluetooth and that worked instantly. I played a few songs via Spotify that I had downloaded in their highest quality, and sat back and played with the bass and treble settings, as well as positioning. My first impression was very positive, but as I sat and listened, I felt they were unbalanced. Something was not right. I played with a few settings and everything checked out. Upon close inspection, I found the tweeter in the right speaker (the amp side speaker) had no audio from the tweeter. Well, that explained why my brain thought something was out of balanced...a dead tweeter.

I opened a ticket with Fluance on 7/23 and it's now 7/28 with no response. I tried calling the toll free number and the message said the office was closed at 4:30 PM EST on a Tuesday. I read a lot of reviews that said the speakers sounded muddy or bass-heavy, or that something was out of balance. I suggest you put your ear up to the tweeters and see if both are playing.

I'll update this review once I have some sort of resolution to my still-open trouble ticket.

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

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.

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.

These go seamlessly with the Fluance turntable I bought several months ago. Easy to set up, love that they're bluetooth because I can also use them with my desktop or phone with ease! also come with a remote which I didn't realize!

Amazing sound. Bluetooth is super easy. Need to get the preamp for my Rega RP1

Bill M June 30, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years California, United States

Simplicity of design and use is big in the electronics field. So many products are over-designed with needless features, but not the Ai60 powered speakers for Fluance. Like its little brother the Ai40 these come with user-friendly remote allowing customization of the sound as well as quick muting or changing from Bluetooth to Aux mode. Room-filling sound, functionality to spare, usb and subwoofer capability! Homerun these lovely units for sure!

Sang L. June 30, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 3 Years New Jersey, United States

These are my first powered bookshelf speakers, and I'm blown away at the quality all-around. Here's what I love about my Ai60s:

- The setup was super easy
- The sound is full, rich, and balanced, and would alone justify the price. Especially love listening to live recordings/albums.
- Functional and versatile as hell. RCA, optical, bluetooth, and USB options; subwoofer input; the intuitive LED light signals; and of course, the remote control.
- Handsome and elegant, goes perfectly with my RT81's

Only gripes are: the volume level is not always consistent and will sometimes shift suddenly (depending on the track and its mixing/layering), and sometimes it just feels too bass-heavy. (I have to keep the bass at -6, as far down as it will go.) Still, it is an incredible value all-around. If you're on the fence, I would 100% give 'em a shot.

I am super happy with these speakers. Sound is incredibly crisp. I would totally buy these if I were you. Very good sound in small to medium sized rooms.

Jordan K June 27, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 2 Years Minnesota, United States

Amazing. Sounds natural and flat, while still delivering tight bass and crisp highs. Paired with an RT82, these speakers are truly phenomenal.

Tim H June 27, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Texas, United States

Overall very nice sounding speakers. Well balanced: clean highs, clear midrange, and deep punchy bass.
Impressive, well-finished cabinets and quality drivers. Very happy with the purchase, exceeded my expectations

Ryan W June 26, 2020 Intermediate Listener - 15 Years Michigan, United States

Amazing sound quality from these speakers. They are built very well and look great next to my turntable. The best bookshelf speakers I have ever had. The remote is a great accessory, sub woofer input, Bluetooth, RCA, Optical, USB compatibilities all work flawlessly. Highly recommend the Ai60 speakers. Awesome class D amp built in with a 100 watts of Total power.

The sound is clean but lacks the richness and character I was hoping for when using with a turntable. I also found the bass to be generally underwhelming.

Kevin N June 18, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years North Carolina, United States

Back in the late 60's and early 70's we had some "Classic" gear and in the late 70's I got married and let go of everything.
We knew what full, rich sound was reflective of the vinyl of the days.
After retiring and spotting out an empty bedroom I saw the opportunity for a music room.
I knew my biggest restriction was the 12 x 15 room size so all thoughts of a Marantz amp and JBL speakers were not a fit. I started to study things out and took the risk of a powered speaker setup and the high-end Fluance table with the 2M Ortophone cartridge. The YouTube reviewer was dead on!
I have to tell you all my expectations were met and I'm sold on Fluance!
Don't hesitate with these well tuned, engineered speakers that fit my room size. The sound is almost like a flashback to the early 70's!

Mitchell Conway June 18, 2020 Advanced Listener - 20+ Years Massachusetts, United States

Speakers have a very fun sound and a lot of bass. They definitely have a very very loud hiss at higher volumes, so do not get these if you plan on blasting anything or else you will be in trouble.
