Fluance XLHTB ( cherry wood)


Fluance is known for budget systems , but the XLHTB is the company's stab at a more expensive "flagship." This is a $799, 5.0 speaker system without a subwoofer, but Fluance makes up for the loss by including an 8-inch bass driver in each tower.

The Fluance XLHTB offers stunning looks and lots of unexpected features for the money. The high-impact sound is great for action movies, and there's little need for a sub if you configure it correctly. Its build quality is very good.

Uneven frequency response with too much bass; treble can be harsh on some material; weaker midrange detail means quieter music and dialogue driven movies suffer; Satellites and center not up to the same performance standard as the towers.

The Fluance XLHTB is a head-turning set of speakers at a reasonable price, and while it sounds perfectly fine in a home theater context, it lacks the performance subtleties peers can offer.

Clear midrange and treble ; Impressive bass ; Tight, accurate transient response ; Elegant appearance

Muffled center speaker ; Strident upper midrange from towers ; Somewhat clinical sound signature

Given our experiences with the Fluance XL7F floorstanding speakers, we believe the XL7S surround and XL7C center speaker will be quality products. At $799.99 they won't break the bank either.
