Fluance retools Signature Series for the better
If at CNET we gave awards based on looks alone, the Fluance Signature Series would definitely be on the shortlist.
These hulking, four-foot-tall beasts manage to look very sophisticated despite their massive size.
But scratch under the glossy surface and you'll find that these speakers can only do one thing well.
Giving the eight inch woofer's on this thing you can probably guess what this is home theatre.
Give them a movie soundtrack and they'll plug really deep in the base you dont even need a sub woofer and they'll also provide ultra clear dialog.
However they are 800 dollars a pair and at this sort of price you want to make sure you're getting value for money Which that may means they should be around us all that they should also play music but, sadly these won't come.
Despite those massive woofers, music is very mid range heavy and can be quite grading with styles like rock in roll.
By its response also drops off completely except for the really This one side and it is a shame because they look great, and on paper they have plenty of potential.
But for the money, you might want to look into speakers from say Klipsch or Imac instead.
The finish on those rivals won't be as nice, but they'll sound a whole lot better.
