Fyne Audio Owners & Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Any views on Fyne Audio F501's or any of their range? I realise they aren't available in Australia yet but understand they aren't far away (Em Audio), and they are in New Zealand. Thanks

I’ve not heard of them before, but it looks like they have some interesting and well thought out products at reasonable prices.

 

I’m particularly fond of dual concentric drivers, so it will be interesting to see how the company goes.

Yes, the engineers are ex Tannoy.

 

I've heard, and had a play with a number of their 500 and 700 models during trials about 18 months ago.

 

I was seriously impressed by them, one of the best brands at their price point in terms of both sound and finish, actually awesome value at the price they were indicating at the time.

 

Sorry, I didn't take notes on individual models.

 

Cheers,

Jason.

Watch this brand. It's good, very good.

 

I've heard it Munich twice and Hong Kong once.

The entry level range was available first and I was asked by the MD to sit down and take a listen.

When finished, he asked me what I thought the price was. Needless to say, I was many thousands of dollars off! Good job I'm not responsible for pricing them!

 

I heard some higher end ones (not familiar with the model numbers) next and they just kept impressing.

Crappy hotel room environments so I'm looking forward to hearing them again soon.

 

Oh and speaking of crappy hotel rooms - they'll be at this year's show for all to hear in October. :)

When l was going through my quest for speakers. Through my research these where high on my list. Those and the Deli Orbaron 5s.

Excellent reviews and a very reasonable price. Alas, at the time neither were available in Australia.

Must be good Karma because l ended up with some PMCs. And then because of these speakers, l had to up scale everything else in my setup. Its been a very enjoyable 6 months.😍

No. Correct spelling. Hit Europe last year. Not here. Did you think l meant Rubicons?

Not even close. Dali Oberon.

Heard the Deli at the Rubicon is both colder and wetter and that you need a Jeep.

And only to be crossed if you’re planning to conquer Rome.

F501 looks very interesting, 90dB sensitivity so might work well with lower powered tubes.. Wonder how tight the bottom end is on these for a medium-ish room..

Hey guys, just got myself a pair of 502s.  First impression is the superb build quality for the price. Kudos for something made in China.  hooked them up to my  musical fidelity A3.5. They sound quite different from my existing B&W 683s. the 502s is more subtle, balanced and defined while the 683 now sounds more "rendered" with brighter high and deeper bass. That's just 3 hours of listening though. haven't tried bi-wired yet.

My better half and I had an opportunity to listen to the 704’s last week and they were very impressive to both hear and look at, the Fyne’s are very well made.
At the same time we listened to the same music on some Tannoy’s and to be frank we actually preferred the Fyne’s, especially given they are, from memory, about a third of the  price.
Until seeing and hearing them they weren’t even on our radar.

These are the smaller 703’s next to the Tannoy’s, we didn’t get to hear the 703’s.

Really surprised that the Fyne F501's don't get more air time on Stereonet given the reviews like:

 

Fyne Audio F501 Loudspeaker - The Absolute Sound

 

Fyne Audio F501 review | What Hi-Fi?

 

After a cathartic experience with a set of KEF Reference Series Model Three - Two's in a gin distillery with a Miles Davis album I know well, I knew I had to update my old stereo. So after some research I bought a pair of F501's with a Roxsan K3 integrated amp and CD player following soon after.

 

Wow, wow, wow!

 

The Roxsan amp really bought the 501's to life with a very satisfying punch to the kick drum and a depth and urgency to the bass that belies what you would expect from a 6" woofer that the previous Yamaha RX 797 amp just could not manage.

 

(The improvement that occurred by the shift to the Roksan was frankly shocking in both the dynamics and the depth.  The Roxsan also bought a sense of space that the Yamaha simply didn't have.  I frankly didn't anticipate the extent of improvement a different amp could bring already on top of the change of speakers.)

 

The other surprise with the 501's was how great electric guitars sound with that wonderful ring and detail that I'd forgotten about from decades past of seeing bands live.  I'll leave the professional reviewers to wax on lyrically about the sound stage, transience's and the delightful vocal reproduction.

 

Very nicely made, look great and frankly additive to listen to.

 

Recommended listening for anyone looking for speakers in the under $3000 price range.
