As another HTF member stated last week about this issue, Fluance (www.fluance.com) is made by a company in N.Y. called Gold Sky. (www.goldsky.com). Many people on HTF have been wondering about Fluance and how you can get so much for so little money? I unfortunately don’t have an answer for that, but – I can tell you that I own a home theater setup from Gold Sky. Where I live (Israel) there are MANY companies that sell Gold Sky speakers. I have been able to demo many of these models in a showroom. Some of the companies that buy from Gold Sky are: ADC (Audio Design Concepts), Storm, Alpha Technology, Magnum and Dome. I’m sure there are more, but those are the ones that I have actually seen and listened to. Most of the vendors here are tight lipped about this, but after a little investigating I was able to find out that these were all Gold Sky speakers. Like any other speaker line, there are entry level and higher level. Gold Sky makes everything from cheapo satellites to some pretty darn good floor standing speakers and home theater setups. For those of you who are looking at the Fluance speakers, I can tell you that they are really quite a good deal. The company Storm sells the same models as featured on the Fluance web site where I live and I have auditioned them in showrooms as well as one set in my house. I personally decided on a different model sold by ADC, but of course, Gold Sky is the manufacturer. I have in the past had Energy speakers and most recently a set of B&W 602’s with matching center and rears. Are these speakers that I bought (much like the ones you see on the Fluance web site) better than the B&W’s I had? No. Are they good? Yes, very. Are they a deal? The best I have seen in HT speakers! The enclosures are well done, and the matching is near to perfect for the set. I added a sub that Gold Sky makes, because I got a great deal on it. In fact, I got a great deal on the whole system. This is notable considering that if I bought B&W’s or Monitor Audio’s where I live, I would have to pay twice as much as you HTF members from USA or Canada. So, for me, this was an especially good deal! I ended up with one model up from Fluance top of the line 5 speaker system, and cost me only $400 total. I would love to have some B&W’s or another top end brand, but for me and some other HTF members, these are a real solid alternative. P.J.
