Fluance Fi30 Bluetooth speaker

The Good The very affordable Fluance Fi30 delivers high-quality sound from a retro-styled Bluetooth speaker which is solidly built with a medium-density fiberboard cabinet and a high-gloss black or white finish. It plays loudly without distorting, is simple to operate, and has a USB port for charging smartphones and tablets.

The Bad No battery-powered option; no volume or transports controls on the speaker; no speakerphone capabilities.

The Bottom Line The Fluance's design isn't for everyone, but for those in search of the best sound for their Bluetooth buck, the $149.99 Fi30 is hard to beat.

Best sound for your Bluetooth buck

When I handed off Fluance's Fi30 Bluetooth speaker to our photographer, Sarah Tew, to shoot product images for the site, she looked at it and said: "Didn't I shoot this before?"

"No," I said. "You shot the one with the iPod/iPhone dock. This one's a wireless speaker."

Fluance, an online direct-to-consumer Canadian company, is known for serving up excellent performing speaker for modest prices. And that earlier iPod/iPhone speaker, the Fluance FiSDK500 (no, that's not a good name for a product), costs $200 and sounds excellent for the money.
