Fluance Targets Audiophiles with Bluetooth Speaker

The world of $300/pair bookshelf speakers just got a little more crowded. Internet-based Canadian home audio company Fluance today introduced a compact Bluetooth/aptX-enabled speaker aimed at audiophiles.

The Ai60 combines a 6.5-inch woven-glass-fiber woofer and 1-inch silk-dome with a 2 x 50-watt Class D amplifier in a wood cabinet that stands 13 inches tall. The speaker is an acoustic-suspension design with a rated bandwidth of 35 Hz-20 kHz.

In addition to wireless streaming via Bluetooth/aptX, the Ai60 has analog RCA and digital optical (Toslink) inputs, a micro USB port, and subwoofer output with auto detection.

Finish options (shown above) include black, walnut, white walnut, and bamboo.

I've always found it odd when designers of powered speakers include a subwoofer out and still insist on a ported design. Until Fluance came around, the only high end sealed speakers were from NHT, now you have a less expensive and very attractive alternative.
