Fluance SX6 (!)

Thanks, Zeos, for recommending the Fluance SX6. I can’t believe how impressive they sound for the price (especially since I live in Canada so, free shipping). Bought them 6 months ago. Angled on a high shelf in my room, they sound tight, percussive (well, they’re big ass “bookshelves”), and yes, obviously, the tweeters sound glorious. When I saw the frequency response graph on their website (confirmed by the website “noaudiophile”), showing the flat (ish) line from 10khz to 20khz, my jaw dropped. I’m used to look at headphone graphs, in which 99% of them fall apart at 10khz.

I mean, I just don’t get it. They don’t sound like speakers. They sound like 400$ headphones or something… they sound like I’m there and I can “see” the imperfections on the cymbals and… wow, anyway. That’s the magic of decent tweeters (plus percussive woofers in huge boxes), I guess.

Sure thing, screw the Logitech crap, this is quality. This is at least 10 times the sound quality of their 5.1 in a box for the same price.

Hi from Canada! I got SX6 for 3 years now and I have same positive experience as you do. My DSP correction is to boost 45-55 Hz at +3 +4 db without cutting the hights. I also noticed that distance and height positioning are very important to achieve the maximum from these.
Moving to KEF Q100 was an upgrade mainly in imaging aspect.

If you want a much more detailed review look at the site Fluance SX6

Impressive how the neutrality changes with dsp correction as can be seen here 2 no dsp correction 7 with dsp correction http://noaudiophile.com/Recommendations/

I don’t believe in EQ or DSP correction, or, rather, I prefer simplicity. They’re angled a bit and they touch the wall, that’s my “EQ”. :wink:

Computer/PS3 (no EQs at all) -> HDMIs -> Denon AVR (No EQs at all) -> Fluance SX6. That’s it.

(Oh, plus Wharfedale 8.1s as rears).
Yes, I’m using 100$ SX6s as my main speakers, and 300$ Wharfedales as rears (and rarely). Bought them used, tried them, didn’t like em, too V-shaped, strange details, put them 10ft across the room for a 4.0 setup.

I’ve seen several GOOD reviews on the SX6, I dont mind playing with an EQ a lil bit…

Anyone running the Fluance SX6 surround package?

Or the Towers version?

Wow. If the towers are as good a value as the bookshelf, that’s a lot of sound for $500!!

I’m still rocking a pair of SX6s due to Zeos’ video review about 5 years ago. I’ve put a TON of hours on them and they still make my ears happy. I’d like to experiment with other speakers (like the Micca RB42s for example), but I’m still pretty happy with my SX6s. For poos and giggles, here is my favourite review on YouTube for the SX6…Zeos’ review is good too, of course! :wink:
