    "The Fluance XL7F is an incredible value that’s worth every cent of $499.99/pair -- and far more. In fact, Fluance could easily raise the speaker’s price by quite a bit and still be offering the deal of the year. (But if you don’t tell them, I won’t.)"

    I have had these speakers for over a month now. They have performed above beyond expectations. I have not found a single piece of audio that they have not been able to play well. I am very pleased with their performance and highly recommend them. Thanks Sean

    Brian L February 25, 2018 Washington, United States

    Outstanding, paired with a subwoofer and HD music. (AIFF, FLAC etc) The imaging, tonal quality is mind blowing.

    James Michael September 29, 2017

    Bought a pair of Classic Elites a couple years ago and was really impressed. i did require a sub woofer for them but they were outstanding. when i saw the XL7F's and after seeing reviews from professionals i knew i had to have em. Ordered them on a Friday received them on Monday! Three weeks later i have no regrets!

    Thanks Fluance

    Not a bad buy for the price. I've been using these towers for a month now. They look great. There is a lot of sound missing. Not sure if it's the crossover or the midrange woofers? It's killing my music play. - Verified Store

    Bangsong July 23, 2017

    Had these speakers for four months now, was hoping for better results music wise, anything heavier than queen through these becomes a distorted mess,ht sounds good which is the only reason i didnt give 1star. - Verified Store

    They sound better after break in didnt much care for them in the begining. Build quality however is real good. Speakers are subjective however and they were replacing some pretty high end speakers from the 1990's - Verified Store

    I bought these speakers simply by reading through the customer reviews and had high hopes for them. Unfortunately, for my own personal tastes, I found the sound of these speakers to be very muddy and lacking a certain crispness, especially with music. For instance, when playing 'Something' by the Beatles through these speakers, it was very difficult to hear Ringo's cymbals as well as the subtleties of George Harrison's guitar.I had these hooked up to a Denon x3300w, not a top end receiver but no slouch either. Even after tinkering with all the options on the receiver, and moving the speakers around, I could not the speakers to produce a clearer, more desirable sound. Alas, I am now trying to sell these speakers as I have bought the Q Acoustics 3050.If your budget allows for you to spend $699, I highly recommend the Q speakers over Fluance XL7F. The Q's are on entirely different level when it comes to sound quality. Unlike the Fluance speakers, the Q's were very pure, unadulterated, and crisp (also, no treble fatigue), and the bass was so smooth and almost had a groove type feel to it.Below are some of the pros and cons of the Fluance XL7F. Please note, these are only my opinions and these speakers may be great for you. Do yourself a favor though and listen to them before you purchase them.Pros:Build quality seems goodEasy on the eyes, they look very goodCan be bi-amped or bi-wiredFantastic quality speaker terminalsNot the worst budget speaker on the market, for most non-audiophile people, these will work just fineCons:Muddy soundingUnusual crossover point at 800 hz (maybe that influences the sound quality)Very power hungry, it takes a lot of power to get a decent sound from these speakersFeels bass heavy at times, difficult to hear midsNot suited for listening to music other than genres like electronica - Verified Store

    These speakers are dazzling. I couldn't be happier. If you really want to hear what they can do, pop in the movie 'John Wick' and they will 'bad ass' all over your space! - Verified Store

    Chuck's G April 18, 2017

    These speakers sound good. I'm using a 1970's Sansui 120 watt per channel receiver to power them in my living room. They definitely won't handle all the power a vintage monster receiver like this has to offer but they're plenty loud, and have nice tight bass response that I'd often found lacking in similar modern tower speakers. I like them a lot. They sound great & they're beautiful furniture. They compliment my living room well. Best $500 I've spent in a while. - Verified Store

    James T March 30, 2017

    These speaker are the most bang you will get for your $$, the built in subs do a fair job at the low end as well. I actually bought two pair of these and run them in parallel. :) Rock on!! - Verified Store

    Dennis Carmean March 29, 2017

    Ordered my pair of Fluance xl7f speakers on Sunday,March the 26th and received them today,Wednesday,March the 29th.Took a vacation day from work just to make sure I was home when the speakers arrived.Thank you Fluance for the double box and ample packing material as the boxes arrived in less than good shape.There was a gash on one box about half way down the box on the corner that penetrated both boxes exposing the white packing foam Inside,but there was no Impact to the speaker Inside,again,thank you for the great packing job.Bi-wired the xl7f's to my Outlaw rr2150 receiver with 14 awg knukonceptz wire with nakamichi wave plugs(nice fit)Powered up the receiver and chose to play every song I have on my Ipod 5th gen video from the Police,which comes to almost 2hrs of music and now I'm listening to Peter Gabriel(love the wolfson dac in the Ipod)My first Impression of the xl7f's was very good,given the break in period.At first the highs seemed recessed and the mids and bass sounded tight and dry.After 3hrs with the volume control between the 10:30-11:00 position the highs have really opened up and become more forward.The bass and mids have definitely become more natural sounding,and this is just 3hrs into the 10hr break in period.I have always had the dilemma in choosing between new speakers and vintage speakers based on the sound I was looking for.Newer speakers always left me wanting more.I love vintage speakers,but with vintage comes repairs to make them sound as they should,which I didn't mind when I was younger.The xl7f's have not only solved my speaker problems,but has done It with a big smile on my face.Thank you Fluance,I will be watching your future products.
