Fyne Audio F502 Floorstanding Loudspeaker
Fyne Audio are a relatively new name in the audio world, but they boast enviable experience and expertise across the design and manufacturing team. Priding themselves on being devoted audio professionals with a passion for music and desire for the finest sound quality.
The F502 floorstanding speaker delivers the series’ signature clarity and articulation along with visceral bass. The system will suit larger listening environments but is capable of revealing a huge dynamic range even when played at low volumes in smaller rooms. Isotropic energy radiation, with point source constant directivity, is provided by a 200mm (8″) proprietary IsoFlareTM driver for outstanding stereo imaging, even off axis. A matched 200mm (8″) bass driver is also fitted to the 64-litre cabinet ensuring a breath-taking Hi-Fi or home theatre experience. Ideal for medium to large-sized rooms, the F502 is supplied with a dedicated plinth incorporating our BassTraxTM Tractrix diffuser system, which integrates bass energy uniformly into the room. The luxuriously finished, contemporary styled cabinet is available in a choice of dark oak or black oak real wood veneer and piano gloss black or white. Enhancing its aesthetic appeal, it has a gently curved front and rear baffle which additionally benefits the acoustic performance by reducing colouration effects.
Iso Flare Point Source Driver
Utilised in the F502 Fyne Audios IsoFlare driver is a point source system whereby the bass and midrange driver shares a common centre with the high frequency unit. Providing outstanding stereo imaging even of axis, energy is radiated isotropically with constant directivity, following the flare of the cone. Sound is produced as if emanating from a single point in space. To fully optimise the drivers performance every aspect of the meticulous design has been considered. Eliminating unwanted vibrations, which would be detrimental to the sound quality, the IsoFlare drivers are built around a rigid cast aluminium chassis. Multi-fibre paper cones are used providing natural sounding midrange and clean transient behaviour.
BassTrax Tractrix Profile Diffuser
This floor standing model employs a downwards firing port system and a twin cavity reflex loading system. The loading system broadens the tuning frequency to reduce cone excursion. Which means the driver is therefore operating under less stressful conditions resulting in enhanced musical understanding. Silence is also an important factor when indulging in music. This leads us to another advantage of the diffuser system: that it effectively mutes unwanted air movement noises by obstructing standing waves produced by the main internal port.
Underneath the vent in the base of the speaker, the BassTrax Tractrix profile diffuser is used to transform the plain wave energy in to an expanding spherical 360-degree wavefront, consolidating energy consistently into the listening environment and making the loudspeaker less critical of room positioning. Preserving a 90 degree angle at each intersection of the bolstering wavefront, the profile averts reflections which could otherwise blur and impair the music.
With traditional driver surround profiles, at a precise frequency, energy can be followed back down the cone, causing coloration. To provide a non-homogeneous interface, which very effectively recesses cone energy, we employ FyneFlute technology. This variable geometry, within the computer designed fluting, eliminates mis-termination effects and reduces coloration, providing greater musical accuracy.
Construction of The Cabinet
Incorporating Fyne Audio’s leading technologies within well-constructed cabinets ensures excellent in-room performance. Superior cabinet rigidity is provided on the F502 floor standing model through a combination of MDF panels which are cross-braced internally. Added stiffness is achieved by connecting the magnet assembly of each driver to the cabinet bracing using a resonant-absorbing mastic.
The rigid MDF plinth with large floor coupling spikes delivers stability to ensure well-controlled bass performance and further enhancing stereo imaging. Additionally, the spikes can be adjusted from above the plinth allowing easier levelling of the speaker.
The beautifully finished, modern styled cabinets are available in a choice of dark oak or black oak real wood veneer and piano gloss black or white. Complementing their aesthetic appeal, they have a lightly curved front and rear baffle which also benefits the acoustic performance by reducing coloration effects.
Low-loss, laminated core inductors and audiophile-grade polypropylene capacitors are used exclusively on the F500 model crossovers. The result is an exceptionally spotless signal path and very low crossover losses, ensuring the very best in detail resolution and musical communication. Despite the designs are computer optimised, fine-tuning is always undertaken through critical auditioning. High quality bi-wire speaker terminals are fitted to allow further performance enhancement.
A Flagship Speaker
Flagship of the F500 range, the F502 floor standing loudspeaker incorporates a startling purity and transparency of sound with visceral bass. The system suits larger listening environments but can also reveal a huge dynamic range even when played at low volumes in smaller rooms.
Isotropic energy radiation, with point source consistent directivity, is provided by a 200mm (8”) proprietary IsoFlare driver for outstanding stereo imaging, even off axis. A matched 200mm (8”) bass driver is also fitted to the 64 litre cabinet ensuring a breathtaking musical or home theatre experience.
