Bought this along with the RT81 turntable for my husband for Christmas. The sound quality is great and he loved putting it together. Will definitely check out more of Fluance's products.

If you're looking for a budget speaker these are the ones to try out . I was surprised on how much bass comes out them considering there small size, so far very happy with the purchase

I love these speakers. I got them used (like new) and couldn't be happier. They're pretty soft sounding and the bass isn't aggressive at all.I live in an apartment and I can easily get them to sound good without being loud, which is great when you don't want to bother your neighbors.This doesn't mean they can't be loud though; they get pretty intense when I go over 10% volume on my old Technics Class F+ reciever. I just like the fact that they sound good even when they've at low volume.I think it's a good pair if you want big sounding speakers that can also be soft and relaxed when turned down.

I’d never heard of Fluance even thought they have been going for 20 years until I decided to change from my Cambridge Satellite speakers to bookshelf speakers I looked at the usual Polk Yamaha Klipsch Bose on internet in Electronic Shops that when I noticed Fluance the first thing to catch my eye was how good they looked the second was the price now don’t get me wrong the price wasn’t the reason I eventually got them in my 68 years I’ve been stung before by buying cheap but after checking numerous web site and review on YouTube you will always get at least a couple of bad ones no matter what you look for but since there was only a few not so good one’s but plenty of great reviews I decided to get them they look good and are well built I bought 5 speakers after hooking them up and turning on my system I had to turn it down from my usual listen volume they are so powerful and clear I was surprised and after listening to them for awhile I decided to keep them as you get a 30 day Free Return and am going to order 2 more to finish of my 7.1 system I have been that happy with Fluance I decided to buy the RT85 turntable but that’s for another review I would recommend them to everyone and you have nothing to lose since there’s a 30 day Free Return Policy.

Dope, sound great and haven't had a single issue with these new bad boys. Bigger than I was expecting but not a problem for the current setup.I live in a tiny studio and my setup is pretty modest but I can't tell that these speakers would be able to stretch their legs if I had the space to let them.Not gonna bore everyone with jargon, certainly a bang for your buck I'd say.Only gripe is I wish fluance didn't slap their logo/name on everything, your logo/name is ugly and kills what could be a great minimalist look. Even google only puts a G on their devices. Is this not design 101 in 2020?

Jim October 16, 2020

tied in with a Fluance turntable, and still in the break in periodsound great at lower volumes, but needs more bass with certain albumsI run them with a second set, of pioneer that always sounded muffled. now I have the crisp highs and midrange with the bass from the pioneer. After a lot of research, I am very happy with purchase
