Fyne Vintage speakers promise retro looks and cutting-edge technology
Reimagined retro speakers are most definitely a trend in the hi-fi world right now, and there's plenty of evidence to support that at the High End Munich show taking place this week. Fyne Audio might have even stolen a march on the competition with the launch of its Fyne Vintage range – and the promise of possibly the biggest range of retro-inspired speakers to date.
The company is showing off four Vintage speakers in Munich, with three more models said to be on the way, so there should be something for everyone – everyone who is fond of wooden finishes, that is.
Fyne Audio is dividing its range into Vintage and Vintage Classic. The latter is somewhat more affordable and uses MDF in the construction alongside a real wood veneer, while the more expensive, 'no compromise' Vintage speakers are real wood throughout.
Both use familiar Fyne proprietary technology – the IsoFlare drivers, the FyneFlute surround design, and BassTrax ports. The Vintage models add "deep cryogenically treated" crossovers into the mix, too, which certainly sounds cool. And they have the ability to tune their sound to your room with "the analogue 'dial' Presence and Energy control".
