F701 Standmount Speaker
Using trickle down technology from the F1 Series, this elegant, contemporary loudspeaker distils the best of Fyne Audio’s new technologies and expertise into a standmount design. Built in the UK the F701 features a 200mm IsoFlare point source driver with a BassTrax LF diffuser integrated into the down firing port. Luxury high gloss piano lacquer applied to black, white or walnut veneer is the finishing touch to the F701’s handcrafted cabinets. Complemented by Fyne Audio’s uniquely styled FS8 Stand, refined, articulate and powerful the F701 recreates a truly captivating Hi-Fi listening experience in a sumptuous standmount cabinet.
The F700 series’ hand crafted cabinets have a uniquely sculpted shape designed to appeal to both the ear and the eye. The curve of each panel is precisely calculated to diffuse standing waves, allowing the finest musical details to shine through, while extensive internal bracing reinforces the sonic neutrality of the enclosure. Formed from high density birch plywood, chosen for its extremely low sonic colouration, the cabinet construction features a complex, twin cavity tuning system. Each cabinet is meticulously built to exacting quality standards inside and out. Luxury, high gloss piano lacquer, available in black, white or walnut veneer, is the finishing touch to the F700’s sumptuous aesthetic.
The F700 series crossover is the result of sourcing the very best audio components from around the world and Fyne’s extensive experience in network design. The result is a crossover of incredible neutrality, combining low loss inductors, Claritycap high grade capacitors and Van den Hul® high purity silver plated internal wiring to create the cleanest signal path possible. Every F700 crossover is Deep Cryogenically Treated. This super-freezing and slow thawing process relieves microstress in components, wiring and solder joints, maximising signal transfer and delivering greater transparency to the sound. The bi-wired terminal panel uses gold plated link cables and premium quality gold plated binding posts. A fifth terminal is provided for grounding, further preventing radio frequency interference from masking fine detail
BASSTRAX PORT SYSTEM
Fyne Audio’s flagship BassTrax Tractrix diffuser bass porting system is integrated into all F700 models. Using a large, downfiring port with a mathematically derived tractrix profile conical diffuser creates a true 360 degree LF wavefront. The result is unrivalled bass integration in any room, offering the depth and scale of a large, ported cabinet loudspeaker without the potential bass bloom caused by typical port/room interactions. The clever design makes F700 series far less sensitive of room position than traditional loudspeakers, enabling easy in room placement for aesthetic or practical reasons.
IsoFlare point source drivers are at the heart of every F700 model. Benefitting from Fyne’s Flagship F1 Series technology, the IsoFlare units feature a 25mm magnesium diaphragm compression tweeter mounted coaxially into the heart of a potent MF/LF driver featuring a rigid multi-fibre cone and FyneFlute roll surround.
The high powered compression HF drivers give true point source isotropic radiation for unsurpassed imaging and even frequency response. Neodymium motors with vented rear chambers and a metal pole piece to transfer heat and ensure outstanding power handling. Direct output from the diaphragm has been expertly tuned with an HF waveguide with unique geometry that proved an incredibly flat frequency response to over 30kHz.
The IsoFlare’s bass/midrange section and the auxiliary drivers in the floorstanding models, use Fyne’s proprietary multi-fibre cone with its extremely natural sounding midrange and fast transient attack. The unique FyneFlute roll surround is shaped to more effectively terminate cone energy, eliminating unwanted resonances from colouring bass and midrange micro-detail. The massive motor assembly includes a flux focusing magnet for increased LF sensitivity, resulting in a driver that can comfortably deliver the dynamics of high energy instruments.
High power handling and high efficiency are hallmarks of the IsoFlare point source design. The F700 Series’ potent 200mm and 250mm IsoFlare drivers comfortably deliver on the promise of live music dynamics and real world sound pressure levels across the range.
Machined from aluminium, the striking F700 Series plinth offers unrivalled stability and a solid platform for Fyne’s patent pending BassTrax LF diffuser. Twin 8mm thick plates are separated by aluminium spacers with sturdy floor coupling spikes and their large, knurled lock rings feature on floorstanding models to provide easy levelling. Machined aluminium cups are provided to protect wooden floors. The lower plate supports the tractrix cone diffuser part of Fyne’s patent pending BassTrax porting system. Finished in satin black and polished aluminium to complement all three loudspeaker finishes, the F700 Series plinth is a work of art in its own right.
