    Fyne Audio 703 report

    I finally have them dialed-in after a number of break-in interruptions.

    Not the 703s' fault. It was solely related to my schedule issues.

    Several folks have come by to listen, & the response has been excellent!

    If the 703s are this good, I can promise Tannoy owners that the F1 series - when set-up properly - should easily outperform even the top Tannoys - Westminster & Canterbury - while taking up less space.

    Heck, even the 703s are pretty capable of competing with the Canterburys. As a long-time Canterbury owner, I do have some experience with them...

    When I say outperform - for me, it means that they should deliver a higher degree of musical involvement.

    FWIW, I write this as a long-time Tannoy owner & supporter...

    I heard these in person at Jim’s place and they sound amazing. They have that “effortless” sound that I have always associated with Tannoy’s with a much smaller form factor. They play well above the cost of admission. If I were in the market, Fyne’s would be well up the list ....

    Well Jim,

    Having owned the Canterbury SE also, I’m stoked about the arrival of my F1-10, smaller footprint, modern look and more focus sounding. Brian hang in there, I know waiting sucks.

    Distributor is saying any day now for them to receive, then they have to ship from Texas to PA once they are there. So, still not sure

    Too bad they did not drop ship them to you instead of having to go to Texas first. Maybe they will wave as they fly over your house .
