FYNE AUDIO - F302 FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER (PR)
Based in Scotland, Fyne Audio create and manufacture award-winning speakers for those with a desire to have the finest sound quality in their home.
Featuring FyneFlute surround technology and its own high frequency phase compensator, the price may be entry level but the F300 Series benefits from the very best technical and acoustic expertise in the loudspeaker industry. Offering a scale of specification and audiophile performance unrivalled at its price, the line-up provides versatility for any Hi-Fi set up.
A well-constructed speaker cabinet is the starting point for any high-performance loudspeaker. Exceptional rigidity is provided on all F300 models through a combination of MDF panels which are cross-braced internally. Additional stiffness is achieved by coupling the low frequency driver’s magnet to the cabinet bracing using a resonant absorbing mastic. Widening the footprint on the floorstanding models, using a plinth with floor coupling spikes, provides stability for tight bass and accurate stereo imaging.
Optimal performance of each of the F300 models is assured by using high quality precision components within the crossover, including low loss LF laminated core inductor and HF polypropylene capacitors. Although the designs are computer optimised, fine tuning is always undertaken through critical auditioning. The gold plated speaker terminals ensure a clean signal path and the top of the range F303 has bi-wire terminals fitted to further enhance performance.
Fyne Audio aims to provide best in class performance at all price levels and the careful component selection for the F300 drivers helps to meet this goal. Utilising a multi-fibre paper cone on the bass / midrange drivers delivers a natural sounding midrange and clean transient behaviour. Fitted to the centre of the driver is a phase plug which provides smooth midrange roll-off characteristics. FyneFlute technology, used on the driver’s roll rubber surround, provides a non-homogeneous interface which very effectively terminates the speaker cone energy.
tweeter combines a powerful Neodymium magnet system with a 25mm Polyester dome producing crisp and controlled high frequency detail. Integrated within the protective mesh cover is a phase loss compensator which delays the output from specific areas of the dome to give a smooth and extended response.
IN A NUTSHELL
Taking the performance characteristic of its sibling F301 bookshelf design, the floorstanding F302, with its increased cabinet volume, takes the music listening experience to an altogether more dynamic level. The enhanced depth of bass will be appreciated even if listening to the speaker at relatively low volume levels. And the increased power handling capacity ensures that our What HiFi 5 Star F302 won’t suffer from musical compression or distortion for those times when you just have to turn up the volume. Perfect for the Hi-Fi or home theatre enthusiast.
