Ferguson Hill FH009 Review

 

Ferguson Hill is best known for its monumental FH001 and FH002, towering horns of transparent perspex with a similarly mammoth price tag. The company broached the computer/MP3 speaker market a few years back with the markedly more affordable FH007...

At £795/€895 ($,1253) the Ferguson Hill FH009 isn’t cheap, but it’s a solid core system that looks great and is very capable. The style may split opinion, but the transparency of the sound on offer is well worth auditioning.

Ferguson Hill FH009 review

 

Sporting distinctive speaker cones, the Ferguson Hill FH009 is an aspirational stereo sound speaker system for your TV – but it needs some room

Chic acrylic horn speakers ; Detailed soundstage ; Beautiful build quality

Absolutely enormous ; Only 2.1 ; Insubstantial remote control

The Ferguson Hill FH009 is a striking audio upgrade to any TV, albeit one likely to appeal to a limited clientele. Resolutely stereophonic and seemingly hewn from iron, just placing it under a flatscreen will prove a logistical challenge for many.

Ferguson Hill FH009 review

 

This system is marketed as a two-channel home-theatre speaker system. Home cinema fans may mistake the bass unit for a centre-channel speaker in a 5.1 system – but this box is what most of the world would call a ‘sub-woofer' unit, used here to underpin...

We tried to guesstimate the price of this system before learning its retail price – and were wrong by nearly a factor of two. Craftsman engineering and beguilingly smooth and natural sound led us to peg this system at £1500, not the £795 it is...

See-through speakers for those who want their home cinema audio setup to blend in with the background and look striking at the same time.

Warm, large-scale sound ; Includes everything you need

Very limited connectivity ; Imperfect aesthetics

Larger Ferguson & Hill see-through horns appear brilliantly ridiculous, but these smaller units are relatively unassuming. There's something a little strange about a design so odd squeezing itself into such a commonplace form factor, but given the...

High-concept design proves beauty is only skin deep

Visually dramatic ; detailed, expansive midrange reproduction

Sub sounds unwieldy ; no on-board digital processing ; difficult to position ; pricey

Connectivity comes up short This makes positioning it critical – to form a cogent stereo image, it needs to be between the speakers. And placing it on your kit-rack is out of the question, what with all the vibrations it produces.

Ferguson Hill FH009 home theatre system

 

Review If you've ever considered bolting a hulking great stereo system onto your TV, then make a beeline for Ferguson Hill. Its FH009 could be just thing you're looking for.

Overall, the FH009 is an extremely esoteric entertainment option, an expensive two-channel stereo system being positioned as an alternative to an upmarket soundbar. Ultimately, I suspect the proposition will prove divisive. Ferguson Hill has invented...

Ferguson Hill FH009 Review

 

We've got the very stylish and minimalistic Ferguson Hill FH009 speakers to review for you today. You probably know the name Ferguson Hill from their FH001 and FH002 speakers of a similar design, as well as their high price tags. Whilst the FH009...

The FH009 arrives in two large boxes, one containing the bass speaker/amplifier and the other containing the different parts for the two oval-shaped clear Perspex horn speakers.

Ferguson Hill FH009 Home Theatre System

 

The Ferguson Hill FH009 is a mid-range home theatre system, promising to turn your movies into a more dynamic and immersive experience, and bring music to life. Better yet, it looks amazing, with transparent speakers and high quality materials. The...

Despite this, it's impossible not to like the Ferguson Hill FH009 home theatre system. It's beautifully well made, it looks fantastic and it sounds every bit as good as it looks. If you can store the bass speakers and amp somewhere below your TV, it's...
