    One of those things that makes you wonder how this $8K speaker is built and what separates it from much higher dollar setups, probably babbling a bit...

    I would put a price tag of $15-18k if I was ďestimatingĒ sound vs price - and thatís out of the box. That may go up after break in. Fit and finish is closer to $30k. Bass is incredible. Shockingly so. Speaker is dynamic as hell. Love the efficiency!

    For $8k??? Insane and I expect the 502SP (arriving soon) at $4800 to be an even bigger bargain.

    A very beautiful speaker and in person it must be quite impressive!
    I imagine the synergy would be nice with the VAC 170 integrated.

    Re: Fyne 702ís arrive

    You can really see the Tannoy heritage there! No offense to your other brands, but that's my type of speaker there Mike. I'm confident I would enjoy, including the elevated sensitivity, horn like dynamics and controlled directivity over the slightly more tragic/dynamically challenged designs.
    Another big benefit that might not be quite as noticable in the showroom, is when you plop these in an end user room, that may be more acoustically challenging (usually are!). That's where the CD designs tend to shine, they are more forgiving with placement closer to side/front walls etc.
    Experiment with heavy toe ins also, crossfiring them right at your nose will tend to give a much wider lateral sweet spot, the image won't collapse to the LR speaker as would happen with uber wide dispersion (aka cone n domers) when you drift off the center seat. WAF friendly ;-).
    YMMV.

    Oh yes, already ordered and paid for! F1 - 12 in the walnut finish coming. Just one small problem....theyíre back ordered until October. Seems the other markets around the world have gone crazy for them.

    Re: Fyne 702ís arrive

    They look mighty Fyne! Impressive presence, size and looks in your system photo and I’m sure good sounding to boot. For an under 10K speaker they should be a big seller.
    Sad part for us is that they probably sound 80% and cost less than 20% of the M2’s I’m drooling over.

    Congrats Mike! Super high value speakers. Amazing sound quality, fit and finish that are way beyond their price point. Plus the pedigree of Tannoy designers with decades of experience. A winning combination.

    Re: Fyne 702ís arrive

    Today I stopped by Mike's store. He played the Fyne 702s driven by the Viva integrated and the Chord Dave DAC. I was very impressed with these speakers. The fit and finish is outstanding. I have seen speakers that cost much more that are not as well built and finished as these Fyne 702s. As for sound, I didn't know what to expect; however, I found them to be very musical with excellent top end, very good soundstage (Clark Terry's trumpet sounded exceptional) and very decent bottom end. On the spec side, they are very efficient with a sensitivity of 92 dbs. This is a speaker in the $8K - $9K price point that performs at a much higher level than its price point.

    Get a nice integrated (Viva, Pass, Luxman or Gryphon), a streamer (Lumin, Naim, Aurender ...) and the Fyne's to get a very "fine" system.

    My guess is that Mike will sell quite a few of these Fyne 702s.

    I just heard the 703's, WOW. Huge dynamics, energy and fantastic bass. But what I really love is them providing all that while throwing a great soundstage and never getting aggressive.

    A fantastic do everything really fun loudspeaker.

    they look great too :-)

    They have a few hundred now and there is definitely a break in period. Now they have opened up, balanced out and sweetened up. Love them.

    Re: Fyne 702ís arrive

    Not that I'm not totally in love with my Canterbury GR, but I kinda wish Fyne Audio had been around before my last Tannoy upgrade! That would've made things REALLY interesting. This 702 model looks spectacular, and I agree the 8K price is extremely appealing. I'm thinking this handily beats what Tannoy has at that level and form factor: i.e. Definitions, which I've not had the best listening experiences with - WAY too dark for the 10T model (maybe improved in the newer Ti, or maybe something wrong with the floor model) and WAY too bright on the twice as expensive 10A (this was an issue in a couple of setups) which especially disappointed me since I really liked that 10" alnico driver in the Prestige Kensington SE. Tannoy certainly has some great, balanced models, but sometimes there are surprises along the way too. I hope they too step up their game going forward.

    OMG!

    I don’t want to know what those Viva sound like.

    All I know is the first time I heard Magico was with Viva amps and it was glorious. Viva actually made the S1 and S5 sound awesome.

    Yes, we moved the 702ís into the medium room and bi-amped them with MBL amps for fun. They can certainly play in the 17 x 25 just fine. Bass remains great. The speakers are very dynamic and alive. Musical too. I still really like them with the NAIM though. Gotta say.

    They look great as does the room as always! Loved the FI-12's in Munich, the whole line's price points are much lower than many other more popular lines at much higher prices
    and not as musical results (IMHO).

    I have had the 703's for a few weeks, wonderful loudspeakers.

    And my 702's have just arrived, hooking them up this morning.

    Re: Fyne 702ís arrive

    I recently booked a flight to Tampa so that I can audition the Fyne 702's and 502sp's at Mike's shop for Feb. 23. I got to hear the 702's at RMAF with 24 hours on them and loved their wide and deep sound stage and they were not even broken in. They may be a perfect replacement for my Maggies. I really want the Magnepan 3.7i's but I am caving in to my wife's request to down size.

    I will report back afterwards.
