    Fyne 704’s

    There’s no replacement for displacement. Dual 12’s.

    Re: Fyne 704’s

    The High Gloss Walnut is such a nice finish. Awesome lineup.

    The only MFG flaw I have found so far, and you can see it in the pics here, is that they used glue that turns light brown when dry and not black. Around the Tweeter on the Mid Driver, and around the Dust Cap on the Woofer you can see it.

    Shame you didn't have a pair of 502s in the middle

    Great minds think alike. I’m going to have to seriously consider Fyne.

    Re: Fyne 704’s

    The 704s may be the sweet spot in the 'Fyne line'.

    I say this although I have never heard them, but given the staff at Fyne has such a strong & predictable reputation, I'd be shocked to hear of the 704s as a step backwards.

    Of course, this opinion is also based on my 703s.

    My 703s have a very high ME (Musical Engagement) Factor.

    I think you might be right. My only concern is that the 704's "displacement" might result in my personal "displacement" (WAF)....

    Re: Fyne 704’s

    A good friend just received a pair of the 704s a couple weeks ago and received a great buying experience with Mike at Suncoast.

    I had the pleasure of hearing these in the first few hours of play day 1 and while they will benefit from thorough break-in, their incredible
    potential and abilities as a great speaker were immediately obvious. The killer price further seals the deal that this is one of the great
    speaker performers out there at a bargain price.

    I heard the top F-series Fyne speakers in Munich 2019 and was incredibly pleased and impressed with them. The 704 also has an equally beautiful
    cabinet in the Walnut finish, great build quality, the bottom plinth for egress of bass from the bottom-ported enclosure (all of that strikes me as a brilliant
    design choice by Fyne) but adds the 2nd front-firing driver for even better bass resolution and extent.

    704 sound, imaging, etc...: amazing and worth MANY times its price. Good top-line cables bring out even more and break-in is something I'm eagerly
    waiting for to complete as there will be another listening session soon when that occurs at his place.

    Re: Fyne 704’s

    I would have to think that with this much radiating surface and the concentric design they would be extraordinary for large scale orchestral works, and quite dynamic for rock and pop. Very interested, but they are visually imposing to consider working into a main living area.

    Everything from the 502SPs and up are fabulous in their own way. My 502s are smoothing out nicely and my ears are breaking in too.
