Fyne Audio Vintage Five Bookshelf Loudspeaker (pair)

A 5" IsoFlare driver with 19 mm magnesium dome tweeter, down-firing bass port, and 87 dB sensitivity.

Fyne Audio's Vintage Series features sumptuous, luxury design cues taken from the high-end loudspeakers of days long since gone. The finest details include hand-built and finished walnut veneers, burr walnut inlays, gold anodized metalwork trim, and a plinth-style top panel. The beautiful, handcrafted Presence and Energy Adjustment control dial is pure analog luxury in both form and function, and the wood-framed grille cloth weave has been chosen to hark back to a much simpler era of audio.

Beneath that walnut veneer lies a heavyweight, twin cavity birch ply cabinet, with sides formed into contoured curves, designed to optimize mechanical performance and reduce standing waves. The interior architecture has been developed and then tuned to optimize the premium Vintage BassTrax porting system and provide the utmost stable platform for the HF driver. From classic seventies soul to twenties techno, Vintage models deliver the purest, cleanest and most accurate audio every time.

IsoFlare Point-Source Driver

Fyne Audio’s signature design is a point-source system whereby the bass/midrange driver shares a common center with the high-frequency unit. This coaxial design provides outstanding stereo imaging even off axis. Because sound is produced from a single point, it comes off the speakers in a truly spherical and time-aligned wavefront. This preserves the harmonic structure of complex instruments and vocals, recreating the true acoustic sound field from a loudspeaker that is far less dependent on room location.

The Vintage Series uses the 75 mm titanium HF diaphragm for smooth and unstressed performance, with a massive Neodymium magnet incorporating a vented rear chamber to place low-frequency resonance well below the crossover region. This enables a very low 750 Hz crossover point for the most realistic rendition of vocals. The HF driver uses a high-power handling edge-wound aluminum voice coil on a Kapton former with pure copper shorting ring for lowest distortion. Its unique IsoFlare annular waveguide has computer-optimized geometry to provide linear expansion into the room for the smoothest frequency response.

On the low-frequency section, a multi-fiber paper cone gives natural sounding midrange and extremely clean transient behavior even at concert realistic SPLs. The twin roll fabric cone surround (floorstanding models) and FyneFlute surround (standmount models) effectively terminates cone energy without time-smearing, remaining cohesively integrated to the HF driver irrespective of listening volume. The high-power LF motor system uses a giant ferrite magnet with a rectangular copper voice coil on aluminum former for class-leading power handling. The complete F1 series IsoFlare driver is built into a rigid cast aluminum chassis to eliminate unwanted vibrations and coupled to the cabinet’s internal bracing spars through a semi-compliant bonding material for exceptional damping at the driver/cabinet interface.

Bass Trax Tractrix Diffuser System

The patent pending BassTrax Tractrix profile LF diffuser system is a complex yet refined approach to bass loading and reflex porting. It incorporates a twin cavity cabinet design with a tuned waveguide port firing downwards from the reinforced lower panel of the cabinet. This loading technique broadens the tuning frequency to reduce cone excursion and acts as a damping system that blocks potential standing wave resonances produced by the main internal port between cavities.

The lower cavity bass port vents downwards onto the BassTrax Tractrix profile diffuser. The unique, mathematically derived tractrix profile maintains a true 90 degree angle at each intersection of the expanding wavefront, so converts plain wave LF energy into a horizontally expanding spherical 360-degree wavefront with no loss of total energy. The result is seamlessly uniform LF integration into the room and a loudspeaker that is far less critical of room positioning.

Crossover Design

Drawing heavily on the research and design behind the electronics for the flagship Fyne Audio F1-12, Vintage crossovers distil Dr Paul Mills’ 35+ years of experience in analog crossover design into the finest, carefully auditioned components, hand-built with point-to-point wiring. For seamless room integration, each crossover incorporates subtle HF energy and Presence controls. These controls offer owners the option to indulge in lossless fine-tuning to achieve the ultimate in personal and room-tuned performance.

Each Vintage crossover is a true no-compromise design, hand-built onto vibration-damping fibreboard panels using some of the world’s finest electronic components, and tuned to deliver truly class-leading performance. Leaning on those decades of premium loudspeaker design experience, the design team led by Dr Paul Mills refined the crossover design by computer modeling, measurement and many hours of critical auditioning.

Featuring silver-plated Matched Crystal OFC wiring throughout, once fully assembled and tested, every Vintage crossover is Deep Cryogenically Treated at a specialist facility. This super freezing and slow thawing process relieves micro stresses in components, wiring and solder joints, maximizing signal transfer and delivering greater transparency to the sound.

The Vintage Five

Like its larger siblings, this 5” compact bookshelf design celebrates the cabinet finery of traditional loudspeakers alongside the cutting-edge audio engineering of Dr Paul Mills. The handcrafted enclosures of the Fyne Vintage Five are kept compact to allow easy integration into small and medium sized spaces.

With ‘no compromise’ as the theme across the Vintage Series, the Vintage Five comes with all the audio advancements of its larger siblings, including a 5” IsoFlare driver featuring a FyneFlute roll surround, state-of-the-art BassTrax downwards-firing port system and hand-built Deep Cryogenically Treated crossovers. With a touch of class in the integrated Presence control to further refine the sound to your listening environment, the Vintage Five is a bold statement in a compact cabinet.

The Vintage Five offers +/- 3 dB Presence adjustment in the 2.5 kHz to 5 kHz range.
