HIFI CRITIC comment on Fyne stand at Bristol Show – “With my solo piano recording going from pianissimo to triple forte, from 27Hz upwards, all in a space of 27seconds, the Fyne Audio F702 delivered timbre, density, flow and musicality in bundles. What a transformation! Were I looking for speakers, i would definitely have them on my audition list…” Julian Musgrave.
HIFI CHOICE REVIEW SUMMARY: “It handles recordings with an innate sense of balance with no artificial plateaus…. .All the strands of the mix such as guitars, bass and drums are very accurately located, but most impressive is the rendering of Drake’s vocals, which hover ethereally between the speakers and hang back a little, too. The effect is quite mesmeric, and for me the magic of a well-done point-source design“….. David Price
FYNE 700 SERIES
Refined, elegant and powerful, the F700 is a five strong series of audiophile loudspeakers combining the best of Fyne Audio’s extensive acoustic know how and engineering excellence. Fyne IsoFlare drivers are at the heart of every F700 model, featuring a coaxially mounted high-power compression HF driver set within a mid/bass cone featuring rigid multi-fibre construction and FyneFlute™ roll surround. The result is true point source isotropic radiation for unsurpassed imaging.
Isotropic energy radiating point source drivers, magnesium compression tweeters, neodymium motors and Deep Cryogenically Treated crossovers hint at the range of extreme technologies at work on the inside. Curved, twin cavity tuned enclosures built from the finest birch ply, massive all metal plinths with integrated tractrix profile diffusers and lavish piano lacquer finishes craft understated luxury on the outside.
The result is an outstanding series of contemporary loudspeakers with unrivalled specification, breath taking aesthetics and performance that leverages the Fyne Audio teams’ decades of the expertise in designing some of the world finest loudspeakers
The F700 series crossover is the result of sourcing the very best audio components from around the world and Fyne’s extensive experience in network design. The result is a crossover of incredible neutrality, combining low loss inductors, Claritycap high grade capacitors and Van den Hul® high purity silver plated internal wiring to create the cleanest signal path possible. Every F700 crossover is Deep Cryogenically Treated. This super-freezing and slow thawing process relieves microstress in components, wiring and solder joints, maximising signal transfer and delivering greater transparency to the sound. The bi-wired terminal panel uses gold plated link cables and premium quality gold plated binding posts. A fifth terminal is provided for grounding, further preventing radio frequency interference from masking fine detail.
IsoFlare™ point source drivers are at the heart of every F700 model. Benefitting from Fyne’s Flagship F1 series technology, the IsoFlare units feature a 25mm magnesium diaphragm compression tweeter mounted coaxially into the heart of a potent MF/LF driver featuring a rigid multi-fibre cone and FyneFlute™ roll surround.
The high powered compression HF drivers give true point source isotropic radiation for unsurpassed imaging and even frequency response. Neodymium motors with vented rear chambers and a metal pole piece to transfer heat ensure outstanding power handling. Direct output from the diaphragm has been expertly tuned with an HF waveguide with unique geometry that proved an incredibly flat frequency response to over 30kHz.
The IsoFlare’s bass/midrange section and the auxiliary drivers in the floorstanding models, use Fyne’s proprietary multi-fibre cone with its extremely natural sounding midrange and fast transient attack. The unique FyneFlute roll surround is shaped to more effectively terminate cone energy, eliminating unwanted resonances from colouring bass and midrange microdetail. The massive motor assembly includes a flux focusing magnet for increased LF sensitivity, resulting in a driver that can comfortably deliver the dynamics of high energy instruments.
High power handling and high efficiency are hallmarks of the IsoFlare point source design. The F700 series’ potent 200mm and 250mm IsoFlare drivers comfortably deliver on the promise of live music dynamics and real world sound pressure levels across the range.
Machined from billet aluminium, the striking F700 plinth on the floorstanding models offers unrivalled stability, easy levelling and a solid platform for Fyne’s patent pending BassTrax™ LF diffuser. Twin 8mm thick plates are separated by aluminium collets that form heavyweight turrets for the floor coupling spikes and their large, knurled lock rings. Machined aluminium cups are provided to protect wooden floors. The lower plate supports the tractrix cone diffuser part of Fyne’s patent pending BassTrax porting system. Finished in satin black and polished aluminium to complement all three loudspeaker finishes, the F700 plinth is a work of art in its own right.
