Fyne Audio F701 – Fyne Audio may well be a relatively new speaker company but between the management team they have over 200 years experience and that really is evident when you sit down and listen to any of their speakers, I have to say that they really do perform way above their price point, they are packed with innovative ideas but most importantly they are extremely musical so please feel free to pop into HFL for a listen anytime, I know you will be impressed just as I was when I first heard a pair of Fyne Audio speakers.
Using trickle down technology from the F1 series, this elegant, contemporary loudspeaker distils the best of Fyne Audio’s new technologies and expertise into a compact bookshelf design. Built in the UK the F701 features a 200mm IsoFlare point source driver with a BassTrax LF diffuser integrated into the down firing port. Luxury high gloss piano lacquer applied to black, white or walnut veneers is the finishing touch to the F701’s handcrafted cabinets. Refined, articulate and powerful the F701 recreates a truly captivating listening experience in a sumptuous compact cabinet.
Meet The F700 Series
Refined, elegant and powerful, the Fyne Audio F700 series sets new benchmarks in loudspeaker performance and aesthetic design. Built in the UK with Fyne’s innovative point source IsoFlare drivers and BassTrax tractrix diffuser system, the three strong F700 range distils trickle-down technology from the flagship Fyne Audio F1 loudspeaker into a more affordable design for the contemporary home.
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’ hand crafted cabinets have a uniquely sculpted shape designed to appeal to both the ear and the eye. The curve of each panel is precisely calculated to diffuse standing waves, allowing the finest musical details to shine through, while extensive internal bracing reinforces the sonic neutrality of the enclosure. Formed from high density birch plywood, chosen for its extremely low sonic colouration, the cabinet construction features a complex, twin cavity tuning system. Each cabinet is meticulously built to exacting quality standards inside and out. Luxury, high gloss piano lacquer, available in black, white or walnut veneer, is the finishing touch to the F700’s sumptuous aesthetic.
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.
Basstrax Port System
Fyne Audio’s flagship BassTrax Tractrix diffuser bass porting system is integrated into all F700 models. Using a large, downfiring port with a mathematically derived tractrix profile conical diffuser creates a true 360 degree LF wavefront. The result is unrivalled bass integration in any room, offering the depth and scale of a large, ported cabinet loudspeaker without the potential bass bloom caused by typical port/room interactions. The clever design makes F700 series far less sensitive of room position than traditional loudspeakers, enabling easy in room placement for aesthetic or practical reasons.
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.
