Wireless portable speakers have become an essential product category in the audio marketplace. Lots of us want to play our music anywhere and share it with family and friends, and there are many, many companies offering speakers that let us do just that.
Fluance, a Canadian company that specializes in low-cost, high-performance speakers and turntables, has joined the party with its new Fi20 portable Bluetooth speaker. Its unique design makes a bold visual statement, so I was eager to see if its sound quality measured up.
The Fluance Fi20 looks unlike any other portable Bluetooth speaker I’ve seen. Its triangular cabinet is available in your choice of three wood veneers—black ash, natural walnut, or bamboo—and it stands relatively tall, measuring 12 x 6 x 5.5 inches (HxWxD) and weighing in at three pounds. An integrated synthetic-leather handle lets you carry it around with ease.
