Fyne Audio F1-8 Loudspeakers

The F1-8 loudspeaker distils the same technology and expertise utilised in its floorstanding siblings, into a smaller standmount format. The hand crafted cabinet is supported on a machined aluminium plinth that houses Fyne’s state of the art BassTrax LF diffuser. Surrounded by FyneFlute rubber surround, the F1-8 features a 200mm IsoFlare low frequency driver mated to a 25mm magnesium dome compression tweeter to create a point source, time aligned transducer delivering pure isotropic radiation across the entire audio spectrum. Hand finished at Fyne Audio’s UK manufacturing facility in stunning real walnut veneer with burr walnut inlay, the F1-8 represents the pinnacle of UK loudspeaker design in standmount format. 
 
The larger of the new F1 speakers, the F1-8, scales up its smaller sibling to an imposing stand mount design based on a dedicated 8” (200mm) IsoFlare driver. This unit combines a multifibre mid/bass cone with a 25mm magnesium dome compression tweeter, along with a raft of Fyne’s technologies and refinements including FyneFlute roll surround, cast aluminium chassis and ferrite HF magnets.
 
Both new F1 Series models offer the scale and depth of floorstanding designs with finesse and tautness in monitor format, thanks to rigid birch ply cabinets and the integration of Fyne’s BassTrax technology.
 
Incorporated into the machined aluminium plinths of the F1-5 and F1-8, BassTrax uses a Tractrix profile diffuser cone that transfers the plane wave LF energy from the cabinet’s down-firing port into a 360 degree spherical wave front. This seamless LF output delivers substantial bass depth and weight despite the smaller volume cabinets and makes the resulting speaker far less critical of room position and placement.
 
True to the F1 Series, both new stand mount models offer subtle control over the presence band output via a robust front mounted aluminium knob. This unique control through the 2.5kHz-5kHz region, of up to +/-3dB, gives users subtle adjustment of the soundstage through the key vocal spectrum without impacting the overall balance or the speaker’s faithful reproduction of the original recording. The control can gently counter room issues such as being overly live or too heavily damped or can be left in the central 0dB position for a purist response in natural sounding rooms.
 
To support these new stand mount models, Fyne Audio has also announced the dedicated FS8 loudspeaker stands, created for F1-5 and F1-8 but equally at home with the new F700 and F701 models. The design shares the same luxury build and machined aluminium plinth of the F1 and F700 models, adding both acoustic benefits and aesthetic cohesion to these stand mount designs.
