XL7F High Performance Three-Way Floorstanding Loudspeakers - Black Ash
Purchased the Fluance XL7F speakers after many hours of research. It was hard to reconcile the price with the many rave reviews, but judging by the previous feedback, I had the impression these were quite the deal. And they are! I've owned them for a year and the sound still exceeds my expectations - as others have noted, the Fluance Speakers add a new dimension of listening pleasure to your music collection. I have these connected to my Denon AVR-S900W AV receiver, which I use to play vinyl and my iTunes library (via WIFI/Bluetooth connection) and my music does sound so much better. The vinyl I had listened to for years on my budget stereo speakers now sound almost like new recordings of my old favourites - it's true, I have heard new instruments and subtle musical additions that I had never heard on previous systems/speakers. Based on the many rave reviews I didn't add a Sub Woofer, the bass is superb and I doubt (for my listening requirements) there would be any noticeable benefit. But, judging by the huge contrast in sound I have been enjoying for the past 12 months - I'm still considering it... As you would expect I am a converted Fluance Fan and if I didn't already have 3 turntables I would have already purchased the RT81 High Fidelity Vinyl Turntable Record Player. If you're looking for new speakers - you're in the right place.
